Liftoff Date Set For the Samsung Galaxy Tab

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Android Slates/Tablets & Accessories" @ 09:30 AM

It appears that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be landing at Sprint around November 14th! And the latest news on the pricing has the Tab set at $399 with a 2 year contract and $599 without. So start saving up that change found in the couch, because you have a little over a month before the Tab arrives!

T-Mobile Pre-Registration Page for Samsung Galaxy Tab (Info)

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Android Slates/Tablets & Accessories" @ 11:00 PM,+and+Updates)

"We already know that the Galaxy Tab is landing in the UK on November 1, but those of us residing in the US and Canada are still eagerly awaiting information regarding pricing and release dates."

No additional details yet, but you can sign-up today for information in Canada and the US. UK arrival date is expected to be around November 1, 2010, so we can probably expect it sometime after that. I do hope that we will be able to purchase it 'contract free.'

Samsung Epic 4G Provides Near-perfect Smartphone Experience

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Samsung Android Phones" @ 12:00 PM

"Versatile, attractive, and powerful, Sprint's new Epic 4G smartphone comes as close to perfection as any mobile device we've seen. It's built on a state-of-the-art hardware platform; it has a fantastic touch-screen display; and for those who care about such things, it has a jumbo-sized physical keyboard and a front-facing camera. In fact, the only substantial criticism that we can lob at it is that power users will be initially frustrated by its relatively meager battery capacity."

Boasting a sleek design, front facing camera, integrated capacitive touch-screen and a practical keyboard, the Samsung Epic 4G is a very appealing phone. The size is a bit bulky, but if this phone delivers on all other features we may be able to overlook this one shortcoming.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Unboxed...In Italian!

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Other Slates & Tablets" @ 11:03 AM

What's that? You want an unboxing in a lyrical language that you can't understand about a gadget that you really want? BOOM. Here you go. It's an unboxing of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and it's in Italian. My Italian is about as good as my Atlantean (as in, non-existent), but boy, that's one nice looking Android tablet!

Samsung Galaxy Tab Coming to Sprint This Fall

Posted by Jon Westfall in "Android Slates/Tablets & Accessories" @ 05:00 PM

"Sprint (NYSE: S) and Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), the No. 1 mobile phone provider in the United States1, today announced the upcoming arrival of Samsung Galaxy TabTM to the Sprint 3G network this fall. This new tablet combines the popular Android platform and award-winning data features of the Samsung Galaxy S lineup of mobile devices with the reliability and value of Sprint and access to the Sprint 3G network. Samsung Galaxy Tab weighs less than a pound and features a brilliant 7-inch Enhanced TFT touchscreen display, Android 2.2, a 1GHz Hummingbird Application processor, supporting 3D graphics and smooth Web browsing, as well as dual cameras for video chat on-the-go. It offers two fast and easy ways to enter text onto the tablet - a virtual keyboard and SWYPE technology, which allows users to input text faster and more intuitively with one continuous finger motion across the virtual keyboard."

Well folks, looks like it's official for at least one carrier - Sprint will be carrying the Samsung Galaxy Tab this fall. No word on a firm release date or pricing, and sadly it'll only be 3G, not taking advantage of Sprint's 4G technology. 3 MP camera on the back, 1.5 MP on the front (3?!? Why can't we get at least 5?)

Where in the Galaxy Will the Tab Go?

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Android Slates/Tablets & Accessories" @ 04:00 PM

"The latest news regarding Samsung's Galaxy Tab is no more solid than the price (which has, in another's words, been pinpointed to somewhere between $200 and $1200), but if these "people familiar with the matter" are to be believed, we'll see a multi-carrier rollout on September 16th."

The latest rumor has the Samsung Galaxy Tab making deals with three carriers - Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. And we still haven't heard a definitive price on the tablet either. The truth about the Tab's carriers and costs, are still out there, floating in the Galaxy.

Samsung and Google Sitting in a Tree: Bringing You Products with Google TV

Posted by Jason Lee in "Android News" @ 08:30 PM

"Samsung Electronics Co., the world's largest television manufacturer, may make sets run by Google Inc.'s software to compete with Sony Corp. and Apple Inc. in the market for TVs that access movies, shows and games online."

Ever wish your Galaxy S phone had a 48 inch screen and an HDTV tuner? How about a Samsung television fully loaded with Google TV instead? It looks like Sammy may be the next big TV manufacturer to jump on board with Google's Android based Google TV. I can only imagine that this will be a good thing, what with the impending launch of Samsung's Media Hub. In theory, any content you purchase on your TV will be available on your phone and vis versa. What's not to love?

$200 or $1030 Samsung Galaxy Tab - What's the difference?

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Android Slates/Tablets & Accessories" @ 01:00 PM

"A Samsung product exec told the WSJ that the Galaxy Tab would retail for between $200 - $300 in the US, but..."

So according to Amazon Germany, the Samsung Galaxy Tab will retail over there for 799 Euro (approx. $1030 US). That's quite a bit more than what we heard our for our price! How much would you consider paying for the Galaxy Tab?

Hidden Gem Available Soon: Samsung Gem listed in Best Buy's Buyer's Guide

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Samsung Android Phones" @ 07:00 AM

"We've heard talk of the Gem before, and a new listing for the phone in Best Buy's September buyer's guide confirms the existence of Verizon's new low-end Android piece..."

Looks as if Samsung will have the Gem out (and available at Best Buy) very soon so keep your eyes open! Who knew Best Buy even had a Buyer's Guide anyways? Eh, they probably send me one, but like all the other junk mail, it quickly gets placed in the recycle pile without even a second glance.

Listen up - There is a Juicy Rumor on the Samsung Galaxy Tab!

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Android Slates/Tablets & Accessories" @ 07:30 PM

According to Boy Genius Report, the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be available in November from Sprint for an unknown price. And supposedly, it will have 3G/4G capability. Awesome, just in time for holiday shopping season!

Samsung Galaxy Tab Sports 7 Inches of Froyo Goodness

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Samsung Android Phones" @ 10:00 AM

"Berlin, Germany, September 2nd, 2010 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in mobile technology, today announced the launch of the Samsung GALAXY Tab (Model: GT-P1000). Powered by Android Operating System 2.2, the Samsung GALAXY Tab is the first of the company's tablet devices, representing a new category of mobile products for Samsung. The Samsung GALAXY Tab brings together all of Samsung's leading innovations to provide users with more capabilities while on the move. Consumers are able to experience PC-like web-browsing and enjoy all forms of multimedia content on the perfectly sized 7-inch display, wherever they go. Moreover, users can continuously communicate via e-mail, voice and video call, SMS/MMS or social network with the optimized user interface."

The Samsung Galaxy Tab looks interesting and may have some promise, but it also appears as if some features could be improved, such as the 3 MP camera and a more common power adapter. But then again, all genres of new technology have room for improvement.
