Sprint is joining the ranks of carriers that will take your cash for the promise of delivering a Galaxy S5 to your door next month. The device can be obtained in two ways on the Now Network – $199.99 (after a $50 mail in rebate) with a contract, or $0 down and monthly payments with Easy Pay.
If you're interested in Samsung's new oversized Note PRO or Tab PRO 12.2 devices, it's more than likely because you want to get more done on that beautiful and massive 12.2-inch display. In order to make that happen, you'll need a little bit more than just the tablet, and Logitech has already released a keyboard for the job: the Logitech PRO keyboard/case.
At $130 (plus the $750-850 for the tablet), however, you have to ask yourself at what point you stop wanting a tablet and start wanting a laptop or some sort of hybrid/convertible device.
Google has just announced its plans for Android wearables, and this could make all those other smart watches look like they're standing still. Android Wear is an open Android-powered platform that lets developers plug into existing apps and take advantage of Google services like Now and voice search. There is a preview SDK available right now, and Google says wearables based on this platform are coming in 2014.
When Samsung announced the Gear 2 and the Gear 2 Neo last month, the news came with the confirmation that the company was dropping Android from both devices. Instead, both smart watches are powered by Tizen. This may not mean all that much for consumers in the short term, but it does impact developers. For you, Samsung has just shared the first version of the Tizen SDK aimed at wearables. This is what you need to grab if you intend to build apps for the company's two intelligent wristwatches.
Looking for a high-end Galaxy Note tablet that doesn't cost over seven hundred freakin' dollars? Then head over to Newegg, where the slightly older and slightly smaller Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is on sale in refurbished form. You can pick up a 16GB version of the tablet for $374.99, a full $175 off the original retail price, or a 32GB version for $404.99, a whopping $195 off.
Samsung appears to be in full-on product carpet-bombing mode when it comes to wearables, as Samsung-thing-that-goes-on-your-wrist #4 has been detailed in a new leak by SamMobile, and it's called the S Band.
Now, you may say, "S Band? That sounds familiar" and you would be right, it should indeed ring a bell or two! Because Samsung initially unveiled a product called the S Band alongside the Galaxy S4... last year.
The Galaxy S5 is coming to store shelves in April, and it's bringing with it a new version of TouchWiz along with a full suite of Samsung apps. These aren't typically the pieces of software Android enthusiasts foam at the mouth to get, but with all the bajillions of devices Samsung pushes each year, we know there are many of you who get a kick out of some of them.
