It looks like Gingerbread is finally getting ready to (officially) make its way to the Droid Charge, and, judging by the build number (EP4), it seems to be a slightly updated version of the build that was leaked earlier this month (EP4P).
The update will finally catch the device up to its smartphone peers in terms of Android version, but it will also bring the usual round of bug fixes and enhancements, as well. Read More
Prospects of purchasing a Galaxy Tab 10.1 are looking a bit better for our Australian friends, after a court today overturned the injunction leveraged against Samsung's super-thin tablet by Apple. While this is great news, the Australian court stated that it would keep the injunction in place until Friday, and Apple has already indicated an impending appeal.
Leading to the injunction's overturning, the Australian court ruled that there was not enough evidence that Samsung had infringed Apple's touchscreen patent. Read More
After winning multiple preliminary injunctions against Samsung's Galaxy Tab family (including the 10.1, 8.9, and 7.7) in Germany in the recent past, Apple is looking to add one more device to the list: Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1N.
For those who don't know, the Galaxy Tab 10.1N is exactly the same as the original 10.1, except that it has a new form factor, adding a silver bezel and repositioning the tab's speaker grills. Read More

Samsung's Galaxy Note is an oddity. At 5.3-inches it is clearly too large to be a conventional smartphone, but it is also too small to be a tablet. Adding further to its mysticism, it comes with a stylus, something rarely seen in contemporary touch screen devices. Nevertheless, Samsung has big plans for this device evidenced by their enthusiastic release of the SDK for the S Pen.
The first version of the SDK provides developers with the tools needed to create rich apps that can fully utilise all the functions of the S Pen. Read More
Nobody is really sure what it means at the moment, but we definitely know the ad showing the Verizon Galaxy Nexus for $199.99 is real. As in, It's not fake since it's showing up on Android sites across the web (we've spotted it here at AP, at Phandroid, and DroidForums to name a few). These ads are run by NetShelter, which is a premium advertising network that deals directly with carriers and manufacturers and does not mess around - we know them all too well. Read More
Not in the mood to wait around for Verizon to finally decide to put a firm release date on the Galaxy Nexus' head? Tied to one of the other carriers? If your answer to either of those questions was affirmative (and if you have three-quarters of a grand lying around), you'll be delighted to know that Expansys just put up a page from which customers can purchase the I9250 GSM variant of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

If the smokin' fast Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus still isn't fast enough for you, we have good news. Samsung just released the kernel source code for the device to its Open Source Release Center. This will allow developers to see what the Exynos processor under the Tab 7 Plus' hood is really capable of.
Sammy also dropped the source code for the new Galaxy Tab 10.1N, the redesigned Tab 10.1 that was released in Germany to avoid Apple patent infringement. Read More
In a new 60-second ad spot that could be described both as hilarious and extremely bold, Samsung tells consumers that "the next big thing is already here" with the Galaxy SII, while taking a pretty strong shot at die-hard Apple fans, satirizing Apple's cult following.
The spot opens with customers happily waiting in line outside a very Apple Store-ish location nine hours before opening. We then see a eureka moment when the customers catch sight of a Galaxy SII. Read More
