Samsung Introduces Galaxy Ace 2, Galaxy mini 2, One More New Phone This Month And They Get A Free Smoothie

While HTC and Motorola have promised to release fewer phones and focus more on making them better overall, Samsung knows what you really want: tons more phones with needlessly complex names that sound uncomfortably similar to their other phones with needlessly complex names! That's why Samsung is bringing you the Galaxy Ace 2 and the Galaxy mini 2.

Paper Camera Updated To Version 2.0, Adds Video Capability, Android Beam Support

Paper Camera, one of the most successful camera apps on the Android Market, got an update to version 2.0 today. You may remember our preview of version 2.0 earlier this month, 2.0 being the update which promised to add video capability to the already awesome app. Well, JFDP Labs LTD has made good on that promise, and thrown in a few other tweaks as well.

At the moment, only the Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy SII, Galaxy Note, Droid 3, and Transformer Prime have official video support, but JFDP advises that other devices "might have some degree of support."

Besides added video capabilities, Paper Camera has also received support for Android Beam, allowing users to transfer images seamlessly between devices powered by Ice Cream Sandwich.

Official: Samsung Will Not Hold A Press Conference At Mobile World Congress This Year

After indicating it would not announce the Galaxy S III at MWC last week, Samsung has now all but confirmed to PCMag it won't be showing off anything particularly exciting in Barcelona this month - because they won't be holding any sort of press conference during the event. Yikes.

After the S III unveil rumor was shot down, we had been guessing that Samsung would be using this opportunity to announce some sort of successor to the Galaxy Tab 10.1, but that now seems exceptionally unlikely, as well.

Samsung's Big Super Bowl Product Reveal Is A 90-Second Commercial For The Galaxy Note

Yesterday afternoon, @SamsungMobileUS revealed that the company would be launching a "device so revolutionary only an ad in America's biggest game [the Super Bowl] can do it justice." Many on Twitter and across the web assumed it would be the Galaxy S III or a new tablet; while it was doubtful in light of recent rumors that it would be the SGSIII, the new tablet idea was at least feasible.

As it turns out, Samsung is "revealing" the U.S.

Samsung Reinvents Average With the Galaxy S Advance - 1GHz Dual-Core Processor, 768MB Of RAM, And Gingerbread

Did you think that the Galaxy S II was the follow-up to the widely-popular Galaxy S line of phones from Samsung? Think again! Samsung just announced the Galaxy S Advance, a dual-core, mid-range device sporting an HSPA+ radio and shipping with Gingerbread. The new phone also sports a curved display, which is quickly becoming a hallmark of Samsung phones.

The device isn't a wimp, by any means, but it's also not going to top any benchmarks, which places it firmly in the mid-range of devices, which is a curious position.

[Deal Alert] Verizon Galaxy Nexus Just $99.99 For New Customers At Amazon Wireless

Google's latest wunderphone, the Galaxy Nexus, normally runs a pricey $300 on contract when purchased through Verizon. Luckily, competition brings down prices - sometimes dramatically - and it's on sale now at Amazon for just $99.99 with free 2-day shipping for incoming Verizon customers (it's still $259.99 for those who are upgrading). Quite the discount, and 100 bones for  such a mind-blowing device is quite the steal indeed.

In comparison, Wirefly is selling the GNexus for $230 for both new and upgrading customers.
