According to a leaked shot from Sam's Club that fell into the hands of Android Central, we should expect Samsung's newest Sprint device, the Conquer, to hit the streets on July 24th. The Conquer is a mid-ranger with modest specs:
- 3.5 inch 320x480 display
- 1Ghz single-core Snapdragon
- 3.2MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
- Android 2.3
Also expected in July is the Motorola Photon 4G - but there is no exact release date as of yet. Read More
With an update for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 just around the corner, a new video is now present on Samsung's YouTube channel that highlights all of the features of the Tab 10.1, including a pretty thorough look at Touchwiz UX and Samsung Hubs. Among the highlights and features is one rather noticeable blunder as well, so make sure to pay close attention around 5:42...
Did you catch that? I'm not entirely sure what "indivisual speakers" are, but they must be pretty awesome to end up in the spotlight like that! Read More
Update: This update is rolling out now, and is expected to hit all customers within four days.
If a leaked internal document obtained by SprintFeed is to be believed, then owners of the OG Galaxy Tab on Sprint should finally join the Gingerbread club on July 5th. This update will also bring added support for HD Bluetooth to the seven-inch tablet, on top of the added benefits and goodies of Gingerbread. Read More
A couple of weeks ago, Samsung released the kernel source code for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Two days after that, the first overclocked kernel for the Tab 10.1 - coming in at a scorching 1.4GHz - was released. You can clearly see why source code is so important to to the dev community, and today Samsung released the kernel source for the Galaxy Tab 10.1v.
For those that are unaware, Samsung actually released a version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that never made it to US soil. Read More
We've known that Samsung planned on pushing its Touchwiz UX custom interface to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 for some time now, and it appears that that time is almost upon us. According to Sammy's official Tab 10.1 page, we can expect to see this update "soon," along with a few other goodies thrown into the mix.
Touchwiz UX looks to bring some incredibly useful features to Honeycomb, like a notification area power widget and an awesome mini-app tray. Read More
It seems retailers just can't get rid of the Tab 10.1 - and shrewd consumers are coming out ahead. You can pick up a Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi with 16GB of internal storage for just $450 on eBay (free shipping) sold by DataVision.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is probably the best Android tablet you can spend you hard-earned dollars on at the moment, and at this price (10% off retail), it's certainly not a bad buy. Read More
Yesterday, Skype with video was officially released to the Android Market. There was one problem, though: it was only supported on a small number of seemingly random handsets, like the Nexus S (but not the Nexus S 4G), Desire S, Xperia neo, and Xperia pro. Thanks to the ingenuity of skilled Android modder 0mie, that's no longer the case.
With 0mie's modded version of Skype 2, video chat should be fully working on a number of recent phones, including the Thunderbolt (running Gingerbread), Sensation, EVO 3D, Galaxy S II, and Droid Charge. Read More
Among high-end Android phones, Samsung's Galaxy S II pretty much takes the cake. The combination of powerful specs, thinness, and Android 2.3 give it a very competitive edge. But not everybody needs all of that, which is why Samsung is launching the Galaxy Z on Three Sweden. Basically, the Galaxy Z is the same as the Galaxy S II but with slightly toned down specs. Even so, it still puts many other Android phones to shame:
- 1 GHz dual-core processor (possibly Tegra 2)
- 4.2" WVGA Super LCD display
- Android 2.3 with TouchWiz 4.0
- 8 GB internal memory
- microSD card slot
- 5 megapixel camera with LED flash
The phone is currently available for pre-order at the source link below for 3995 SEK, which comes out to around 630 US dollars. Read More
While the US patiently waits for any of its carriers to announce the Samsung Galaxy S II, our neighbor to the north just got itself a heaping helping of awesome. Not just one or two, but three Canadian carriers - Bell, Virgin Mobile, and SaskTel - announced that they would be carrying this superphone in the coming weeks.
The only carrier to provide any worthwhile info was SaskTel, stating that the GSII will come in for $79.99 with a three-year agreement, but no official release date was pegged. Read More
I'm not sure how well this 4G-ified Tab 10.1 is going to do in terms of sales, but it's coming nonetheless. And in four flavors! And by that, I mean there's two storage options (16GB or 32GB) and two color options (grey or white):
These prices are, of course, subsidized with a new 2-year data contract. How subsidized? Try $100 off (yes, that's all). Sounds like Verizon is super confident about this thing, too. Read More
