If you didn't get enough coverage of Samsung's new devices from our own Mobile World Congress posts, Sammy has posted its own official hands-on videos for the three new gadgets introduced at the show. The Samsung YouTube page now has in-depth videos for the Galaxy S5 and the Gear 2 and Gear Fit. They're pretty exhaustive: the phone video clocks in at just under eight minutes and the watch video is over nine minutes.
Despite the silly name, Samsung's Milk Music service seems like a handy thing to have. It offers unlimited ad-free streaming of hundreds of music stations with the ability to create and refine your own stations. However, it's only for Samsung phones. If you have root access, there's a way around that and it's not even very hard.
If you purchase a Samsung phone in the near future, you're going to have yet another option for listening to music. However, unlike most of the other streaming services, the newly announced Milk Music is free and has no ads. The Milk Music app is live in Google Play and it's compatible with the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, Note 2, Note 3,, S4 Active, S4 Mini, and Mega at this time.
We've already had one pretty good deal on a Samsung Note tablet today, but if you'd like something with a little more oomph, Amazon is offering some significant discounts on a newer model. The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is now $499.99 for the 16GB model and $529.99 for the 32GB model on Amazon's main listing. That's a savings of $50 and $70, respectively.
Now, that's still really freakin' expensive as Android tablets go, but since Samsung doesn't seem to be letting go of its high and mighty pricing any time soon, this is probably the best deal you'll get on a new version of this particular model.
Customers who want Android tablets on Verizon's admittedly excellent LTE network tend to have only a few options, but there are two more this morning. Flagships from both LG and Samsung, the G Pad 8.3 and Galaxy Note Pro (or NotePRO) 12.2, are now available as branded Verizon devices. You can pick both of them up on the carrier website, and they should be available at retail stores either today or soon after.
Just because a company files a patent for something, it doesn't mean that idea will eventually see the light of day. In this case, the patent filing in question doesn't just concern an unannounced but rumored product, it deals with a particular aspect. As it turns out, Samsung may one day want us to walk around interacting with our not-yet-confirmed-but-totally-expected Galaxy Glasses while typing on our palms.
The glasses presumably use a camera to project an augmented reality keyboard onto your fingers.
Samsung's previously announced TabPRO 12.2 finally has a release date – March 9th. The giant tablet will cost $649.99 through retailers like Best Buy, Amazon, Newegg, and direct from Samsung. This device is basically the new NotePRO without the stylus, but you don't really have many choices in huge tablets. Samsung is the only game in town.
We're still a bit more than a month out from Samsung's Galaxy S5 and Gear smart watches, but Samsung is looking to keep the hype train going with its new intro videos. You know the drill – it's super-pretty, everything works perfectly, and there's calming music in the background.
The Galaxy S5 video goes down the Samsung-approved bullet points one by one, showing off each feature. There's the camera, heart rate monitor, MIMI WiFi, ultra power saving mode, fingerprint reader, and so on.
