A press release from Sprint late last month confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy SII (labelled as the Epic 4G Touch) would be coming to US markets by September 16th. More recently, online mobile retailer Wirefly launched their pre-orders page for the Epic 4G Touch, offering $50 off of Sprint's standard contract-subsidised price. In addition to their awesome discount, Wirefly also managed to get their hands on the Epic 4G Touch and just a few hours ago, part 1 of a video review of the device appeared on their YouTube account.

Yesterday we reported on a shocking bit of news discovered within an XML file on Samsung's website. The file nexusprime.xml suggested that the next Nexus device was to have a screen resolution of just 480x800. This, along with the ARM11 processor listed in the file proved to be a source of concern for many, but the bewildering specs seemed too out of place to be true.
After some digging around (thanks, Florin and others who raised valid concerns), a similar file for the Nexus S was discovered on Samsung's site in the very same folder (nexuss.xml). Read More
For those still wondering whether Android's first Ice Cream Sandwich device will be made by Samsung, there may finally be a definitive answer. A file recently spotted on Sammy's website called "nexusprime.xml" tells us that the answer is yes.
The XML file contains the User Agent Profile for what we are assuming is the Nexus Prime, but there are a few shocking revelations buried within. The first thing that stands out is the screen resolution, which is listed as 480x800. Read More

We've been hearing rumors of the upcoming Samsung Stratosphere for Verizon Wireless for a little while now, and some press shots for the device have now fallen into the hands of PocketNow.
Early rumors suggested that this device could be VZW's reason for not getting the GSII, but more recently,it was compared it to Sprint's Epic 4G. After seeing the pictures, I would say that the latter is pretty dead-on, as it looks nearly identical to the Epic. Read More
Samsung's Galaxy Tab 7.7 seemed like a promising tablet when announced at IFA, despite the fact that it was evidently not headed for the U.S. Those hoping to get their hands on the device however will be interested to learn that the 7.7 has disappeared from IFA altogether. All that is left of the device's display is a drab curtain and velvet rope.
The latest news has come in the form of an official statement from Samsung, sent to thedroidguy indicating that the removal of the 7.7 from IFA did in fact have to do with a court decision made on September 2nd. Read More
The freshly announced Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, or as I like to call it, Get-In-My-Belly, is my next Sprint device, replacing the now senile EVO 4G with its state-of-the-art gorgeous 4.52" screen and blazing fast Exynos dual cores sprinting at 1.2GHz each. Sure, the Prime may be on the horizon, but who knows when or if it will be announced on Sprint at all? In the meantime, the Epic 4G Touch is almost here to tower over all competition. Read More
If the insanely high-res screens of the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab 7.7 have you drooling, you're certainly not alone. But if you live in the US, it's all too likely that you will never have the opportunity to see either of the devices in person.
At IFA 2011, the very same conference where the 7.7 and the Note were made official, a Samsung representative told GottaBeMobile that there are currently no plans to sell the gadgets in the US. Read More
Thanks to Samsung's Unpacked app, we already knew that the South Korean company would be announcing the Galaxy Tab 7.7 today, but now we have official confirmation along with a full list of specs to match.
It goes without saying that the latest addition to Samsung's tablet family will have a 7.7-inch display, but this display will pack a resolution of 1280 x 800, the same as the recently announced Samsung Note smartphone. Read More
No, that isn't a typo in the title - Samsung has indeed just unveiled a 5.3-inch phone, the 'Galaxy Note', at IFA 2011 to join the rest of its growing Galaxy family. The insanely big device doesn't just stop there, though, as Samsung has paired it with one of its Super AMOLED displays at a resolution of 1280 x 800. That happens to be the same resolution as my 13-inch laptop, so you get an idea of just how sharp this thing is, with a pixel density of 285ppi. Read More
