The new Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 might be really expensive, but you know what isn't? The kernel source. That's available for download on Samsung's open source site right this minute.
Samsung may be preparing to announce the Galaxy S5 at Mobile World Congress later this month, and one of the features it's sure to detail is an updated version of its S Voice assistant. We saw a few screens of this app leak recently, but now SamMobile has gotten some hands-on time with the app and has the screens to prove it.
Are you not experiencing the pleasure you need and deserve from your current tablet? Do you find that your 10-inch tablet simply isn't satisfying? The Samsung has the solution: not one, but two brand new tablets that offer a fabulous 12.2 inches of diagonal screen real estate. The Galaxy Tab Pro and Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, along with the smaller Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 and 8.4, are both launching in United States retailers on February 13th.
Say what you will about Samsung's plastic designs and overbearing skins, the original Galaxy Note 10.1 was and is one of the more capable stylus-enabled tablets on the market. If you're looking for a good deal on the WiFi version, eBay has a refurbished model for just $229.99. That's almost $300 off the original 2012 price, and still a solid $170 off of the retail price (even for a refurbished model).
The Galaxy Note 10.1's biggest plus is the Wacom-powered digitizer and stylus (S-pen) combo that comes standard with all members of the Note family.
It feels like we just got done with CES, but Mobile World Congress is looming heavy on the horizon. As usual, Samsung will be there with bells on, but it will shun the show floor in favor of a dedicated Unpacked event. The first Unpacked venue of the year has been set for Monday, February 24th, according to Samsung Tomorrow. It will start at 8:00 PM local time (2:00 PM Eastern), putting it right at the end of the show's first day.
The Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 is two inches larger than your typical beefy tablet, and it's priced to match. The device will soon hit store shelves in the US for a whopping $849.99, over three hundred dollars more than Samsung's own 10-inch Galaxy Note 10.1 2014. Anyone who wants to call dibs on this expensive piece of hardware can do so now at Office Depot. It will become available February 13th.
Sprint has been marketing push-to-talk functionality (a walkie-talkie style function that's popular with business users) since long before Android came into being. Though the feature isn't nearly as common as it once was, Sprint seems ready to keep it going with an update to the official Android app. The Direct Connect service is now compatible with a handful of new phones, most notably headliners like the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, and LG G2.
Samsung hasn't made a big fuss about it yet, but the long-rumored Galaxy Note 3 Neo is now official. The device, which is a more modestly specced version of the Note 3, has popped up on Samsung's Polish site with all the pictures and data points you could ever want.
There are two versions of the Note 3 Neo, one with LTE and a hexa-core ARM chip, and another with 3G and a quad-core processor.
Samsung has become that one friend you've got who suddenly decides he wears a fedora. No matter how many times you tell him that he looks less like a debonair time traveler than a guy who raided his grandfather's closet, he just won't take it off. Russian blog Hi-Tech Mail spotted the new Galaxy S4 'Black Edition' on Samsung's Russian page this morning, and a similar variant of the S4 Mini was later found.
Can you hear that? The growing din of excited Samsung fans is rising as we move ever closer to the announcement of the company's new flagship device. Samsung is rumored to be giving its UI a facelift on the Galaxy S5, and that may extend to the S Voice app. A pair of leaked screens show what appears to be the new UI for Samsung's voice assistant.
