Sony Opens Up The SmartWatch, Encourages Developers To Create Alternative Firmware

Sony wants to make sure that you remember they've got a smartwatch, what with all these Pebbles, Agents, and every other Johnny-come-lately crowding the market. They may have found the perfect vector for getting their somewhat aged Bluetooth watch back in the spotlight, at least among die-hard Android power users: custom ROMs. Sony is now officially condoning hacks and modifications to the SmartWatch, as detailed on their Developer World blog.

Samsung Releases Super-Awkward 3 Minute Demo Video For Galaxy S4 Zoom

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is a device so bizarre it's hard to believe it actually exists. But Samsung is serious about this smartphone with a point-and-shoot camera grafted onto it. It is so serious, in fact, that the company has released this three minute demo video starring a young lady that just can't stop smiling while using the GS4 Zoom. Also featured: terrible music.

Korea Times: Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 To Be Unveiled At June 20th London Event, Says CEO JK Shin

We wondered what Samsung would have up its sleeve for that shadowy Premiere event, set for June 20th in London. Or more precisely, we wondered what it had left - the company has unveiled no less than three variants of the Galaxy S4 (at least by name) and two new tablets since the event was announced. According to the Korea Times, at least one new product will be the Galaxy Camera 2, successor to last year's eponymous category-bending smart camera.

If style and power meets rugged and durable is what you're looking for in a smartphone, then you'd be hard pressed to find something that fits the bill better than Samsung's just-announced Galaxy S 4 Active. It takes almost everything that makes the GS4 great and wraps it in a water- and dust-resistant shell, bringing high-end specs to those who need a ruggedized device that can handle nearly anything that comes its way.

Samsung Gives Us A Peek At The Galaxy S4 Reliability Testing Process

It's fun to joke about Samsung's phones feeling cheap because they're made of slippery plastic, but that doesn't mean they're actually cheap. Samsung just posted a video tour of the lab where the Galaxy S4 is tested for reliability, but let's call it what it is – this is Samsung's smartphone torture chamber. The video is in Korean, but you can turn on English closed captioning.

The Galaxy S4 takes everything from drops to impacts and comes out fully functional.

AT&T Announces Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 With LTE

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 has won some ardent fans since its release, but AT&T just announced a new variant for those who want a little LTE with their S Pen. AT&T even put together a handy video showing off some of the Note 8.0's features.

This is the same Note 8.0 we've seen before, but with the LTE radio and (presumably) some AT&T apps built-in. The Note 8.0 runs Android 4.1, has a 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos chip, 4,600mAh battery, 16GB of storage (with microSD card slot), and a 1280x800 LCD screen.

Samsung Releases Kernel Source For AT&T Version Of The Galaxy S4

Developers take note: Samsung is getting some more source code out the door, but it's just one device this time. The kernel source for AT&T's version of the Galaxy S4 is out, and it's up for grabs at Samsung's open source site.

Kernel source for a few other variants of Samsung's flagship have already been posted. In fact, this development means T-Mobile is the only major carrier whose GS4 hasn't joined the open source club.

Samsung Makes The Galaxy S4 Zoom Official: 16MP, 10x Optical Zoom, 3G/LTE, And Phone Calls Too

We're starting to wonder if Samsung will have anything left to announce at the London event next week - they've made three new phones and two new tablets official in the small amount of time since the event was scheduled. The latest is the Galaxy S4 Zoom, an update to both the never-ending string of Galaxy S4 variants and last year's Galaxy Camera that's been caught in the wild already.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Wireless Drops Verizon's Galaxy S 4 To $119 For New Contracts

A few days ago, Dell dropped the price of both Sprint's and Verizon's variants of the Galaxy S 4 to $119 and $129 respectively. Not to be outdone, Amazon Wireless has now undercut Big D by $10, and is offering Verizon's GS4 for $119 for new contracts ($170 for upgrades). That's a pretty solid deal if you don't want to buy from Dell, though I'd be remiss not to mention the $50 eGift card that Dell is throwing in if you do decide to buy through them.

Official Nexus 7 Dock No Longer Available On US Play Store

The official Nexus 7 pogo pin dock, which we reviewed earlier this year, closed up shop on the US Play Store for some reason this afternoon. The $30 accessory was rather long-awaited by many Nexus 7 owners, and went on sale on the Play Store in numerous countries, including the US, in March.

It's possible this is just a temporary fluke in the Play Store inventory system, but this page hasn't changed in well over an hour, so we're starting to believe this situation might be permanent.
