It's always strange to see a company directly comment on rumors about its own products, but Samsung doesn't seem to take issue with it, as a statement they made to The Verge late last night confirms.

The latest speculation Samsung has cracked down on has been in regard to the Galaxy S III, stemming from a ZDNet Korea article that indicated the device would be unveiled next month. Here's the rough Google translation of the original tweet from Samsung's Korean arm regarding the issue:

[Please note] Some known through press releases Galaxy S3 4 월 stand is not true.

You may remember way back in 2010 when Samsung first demonstrated a new flexible display technology, wowing onlookers and begging the question "what's the application?"

Well Richard Windsor, a senior technology analyst at Normura Group, has answered that question, indicating that Sammy plans to include foldable displays in future devices. Specifically, Normura's Asian analysts have indicated that the manufacturer is expected to use foldable display technology to entirely eliminate the appearance of side bezels around a smartphone screen.

According to a new document acquired by Droid Life, the DROID Fighter and LG Cayman (which, according to DL, is the LG Lucid 4G) are slated for official releases starting later this month. The LG Cayman is poised to debut March 29th, while the DROID Fighter will be appearing April 12th. Interestingly, the release dates shown match exactly with the workshop dates we reported a couple of weeks ago.

In addition to the LG Cayman and DROID Fighter, the document lists a couple of new devices – the HTC Fireball (which Droid Life's sources are calling the Incredible 4G), and the Samsung Plato, which Droid Life last saw way back in August, listed for a January release.

As the Galaxy S II is one of the best-selling Android devices to date, it's no surprise that many users are eagerly awaiting an update to Android 4.0. Samsung has already confirmed that it is in the works, and we've even seen a leaked build of what it could look like, but we've yet to hear an exact date that users can actually expect the update to roll out on.

Fortunately, Samsung Israel has taken to Facebook to announce that versions of the device in Israel - both unlocked and carrier-branded - will receive the update on March 15.

Last week, the CyanogenMod team launched the first CM9 nightly builds for the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, and Motorola XOOM. As of today, the following devices also have CM9 nightly builds available:

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi and I/O Edition (download: p4wifi) - yay for the latter, as it seems Samsung completely abandoned it - I believe mine is still running 3.1 with no updates in sight.

Those who are still in the market for Samsung's hotly acclaimed Galaxy Nexus are in luck – Daily Steals Last Call is offering Google's latest flagship device for just $529.99, which is a cool $220 off MSRP. As an added bonus, Daily Steals is offering the phone in either silver or white.

It's worth noting the deal only lasts for 24 hours, so those interested should take action quickly.

Update 2/29/12: The Galaxy S II is now available for sale.

Regional carrier U.S. Cellular just announced its own variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II, which is basically a clone of Sprint's Epic 4G Touch in terms of spec:

  • 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display
  • 1.2 GHz dual-core Exynos processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB storage with microSD card slot
  • 8MP rear shooter
  • Front camera
  • Android 2.3.x with Touchwiz

Unfortunately, the device is not one of U.S.

The Ice Cream Sandwich-packing Galaxy Tab 2 it may not be, but the Galaxy Tab 7.7 that Verizon unveiled at CES last month still isn’t to be dismissed out of the gate – the now-official tablet will be arriving in stores on March 1st, complete with:

  • 7.7 inch, 1280×800 Super AMOLED Plus display
  • 1.4 GHz Dual-Core processor
  • Android 3.2 with Touchwiz
  • 16 GB storage
  • 3 MP rear camera with LED flash
  • 2 MP front-facing camera
  • 7.9 mm thickness
  • SD card slot
  • LTE

Sure, Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) is a tad outdated, but still, it would be hard to resist the largest Super AMOLED Plus display to date, right?

Earlier today we got a chance to play with Samsung's Galaxy Beam (though photo opportunities were limited by lighting), and I have to say - for a projector phone, it's not bad.

The 1GHz dual-core processor hums along through Gingerbread (I know, I know - but an ICS update is surely in the works) nicely, and the 4" WVGA display gets the job done. While it's no flagship device, for such a niche piece of hardware, Samsung has done a pretty decent job here.

We're at the Samsung booth at MWC this afternoon, and first on our list were Samsung's newest Tabs - the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, and the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. The devices are actually fairly similar - same processor, same cameras, microSD card slot, and 3G SIM card slot. Both are also running Android 4.0, which is pretty standard fare for tablets these days. They even share very similar, very plasticky rear covers.
