Review: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G LTE (Verizon)

Posted by Dan H. on Sep 02, 2011 | 3 Comments

We reviewed the Motorola Xoom back in March, and it was the first device to run a tablet-optimized version of Android, known as Android 3.0 “Honeycomb”. At the time of the writing, it was a 3G-only tablet, with the 4G LTE hardware upgrade “coming soon”. Fast forward four months, and the Xoom still doesn’t have the LTE upgrade (it’s coming in a few weeks!), but there’s a new kid on the block: the Samsung... 

Review: Samsung DROID Charge (Verizon)

Posted by Dan H. on Jun 16, 2011 | 6 Comments

Loosely based on the company’s Galaxy S II series, the DROID Charge by Samsung is Verizon’s second 4G LTE device. It had a rocky start — with a LTE outage the day before the planned release, it was delayed for a bit, and now it’s finally here. We’ve been playing with one for a few weeks, so keep reading for our full impressions! Hardware Like the rest of Verizon’s LTE smartphone lineup, the DROID Charge... 

Review: Nexus S 4G (Sprint)

Posted by Dan H. on Jun 10, 2011 | 6 Comments

When Google launched the Nexus One last year, it was a huge deal, considering it was the first “pure Google experience” device. Unfortunately, the CDMA version of the Nexus One never launched. Along came the Samsung Nexus S, the successor to the Nexus One. It’s the first device to run Android 2.3, Gingerbread, and it’s also a “pure Google experience” device. However, this time around, Google granted Sprint... 

Samsung Hercules a dual-core Infuse 4G for T-Mobile?

Posted by Matt P. on May 17, 2011 | 5 Comments

Thisismynext got word of another possible Android device that’s heading to T-Mobile, but not for a while, so don’t get too excited. According to them, the Samsung ‘Hercules’  is “not even entering the carrier’s test labs for another month and isn’t slated for acceptance until mid-August”. So the specs that follow are nowhere set in stone, nor confirmed by any means, but here’s... 

Wi-Fi only Galaxy Tab available April 10th, $350

Posted by Matt P. on Apr 06, 2011 | 7 Comments

After a couple retail sites put the Wi-Fi only Galaxy Tab up for pre-order, Samsung decided to let the cat out of the bag. The Tab will be available throughout the US on April 10th and will have a price tag of $350 attached to it. It’s packing the same 7-inch 1024 x 600 display, front and rear-facing camera and still running Android 2.2. Also, it seems it will only be available with a white back for right now.... 

Review: Sprint Samsung Galaxy Tab

Posted by Dan H. on Dec 20, 2010 | 3 Comments

Samsung made a splash in the technology world with the Galaxy S smartphone — it still remains as one of my favorite Android handsets to date, and it’s one of the few devices to arrive on all the major US carriers, in one form or another. Enter the Galaxy Tab. It’s the first 7-inch Android tablet to make it to all of the major US carriers, and it’s a burning question whether it’s a real tablet... 

The Nexus S.

Posted by Dan H. on Dec 06, 2010 | 6 Comments

After many leaks, it’s finally here: The Nexus S. To put it simply, it’s the successor to the Nexus One. It’s the first Android device to run Android 2.3, also known as Gingerbread. The hardware is made by Samsung, and it resembles their Galaxy S line quite a bit. In terms of hardware specs, it’s powered by a 1Ghz Hummingbird processor, 16GB of onboard storage (no microSD slot on the S), and Google... 

Samsung Announces Orion Processor

Posted by Zealot on Sep 07, 2010 | Leave a Comment

Already winning plaudits for its ARM-based Hummingbird CPU found in Galaxy S devices, Samsung is doubling down with a dual core version for “advanced mobile applications” to be called the Orion. The Orion is a 1GHz ARM Cortex A9-based dual core processor which Samsung says is capable of simultaneously pushing pixels to two on-device display screens, along with a third external display such as a TV or monitor via HDMI.... 

Samsung Ready to Pickup iPod Slack?

Posted by Zealot on Aug 31, 2010 | 2 Comments

Amid rumors that tomorrow the iPod Nano might go tiny and touchscreen-only and that the iPod Shuffle may vanish altogether, it seems that Samsung is looking to fill the holes Apple’s may leave in the MP3 firmament. Samsung will be debuting two mew MP3 players at IFA in Berlin in a few days: the YP-Q3 and the YP-U6. Both are straight-forward MP3 players, featuring long battery life and Samsung’s SoundAlive system. AKPC_IDS... 

Moscow Rules? Samsung Galaxy S TWO Leaked in Russia?

Posted by Zealot on Jul 05, 2010 | 3 Comments

Some details have leaked onto a Russian website about what could possibly be the first second generation Samsung Galaxy S device, the i9200. The leak indicates the phone is slated for the first part of 2011, and certainly seems to conform with a second generation of Samsung’s flagship Android platform. The picture that was leaked makes it appear that Samsung is focused on “thin” for this release…but it looks... 

Yet Another Tablet-Phone, the Samsung Captivate

Posted by Zealot on Jun 17, 2010 | 1 Comment

These things seem to be dropping from the blinkin’ sky. The Incredible, then the EVO, then the Droid X, now the Captivate is coming to AT&T in a few months. The Captivate is one of Samsung’s new Galaxy S class of phones (Ok, can someone can the image of Jean Luc Picard commanding my phone out of my head? “HSPA….the final frontier….”) and is boasting some pretty impressive specs: 4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen 1GHz... 

Samsung’s SNE-60K e-reader

Posted by ctitanic (left mobilitysite) on Feb 18, 2010 | 2 Comments

There are few companies that know how to combine a good design, functionality and innovation and one of them is Samsung. The SNE-60k is an example of that. For the first time we will see handwriting recognition in a device that’s not using a Microsoft’s OS. Well, here’s one e-reader that won’t have too much trouble standing out from the pack — not only does Samsung’s SNE-60K boast... 

Samsung Omnia II: A Review

Posted by Marilyn Torres on Dec 27, 2009 | 31 Comments

After a week with the Samsung Omnia II, what follows is a detailed rundown of every function, issues, and realizations I ran into on a daily basis. While there are finger-friendly improvements in Windows Mobile, and exciting additions to everyday applications like Swype, there were times I felt there was a disconnect between Samsung and Microsoft regarding functionality. From a hardware perspective, Samsung delivered...

This is the hot new Windows Mobile phone from Verizon, the Samsung Omnia II. The Droid isn’t all Verizon has to offer. They have the Storm II and now the Omnia II as well.

Verizon Samsung Omnia II Incoming

Posted by Chris Leckness on Dec 01, 2009 | 9 Comments

A little over a week ago, Verizon and Samsung made the “rumored” Samsung Omnia II official. Yesterday, I got word that I have one arriving today for our review. I reviewed the original Omnia last year and wasn’t overly impressed, but a lot has changed and this one looking pretty hot. I will have a video and some photos online for your viewing pleasure by this time tomorrow. The Samsung Omnia II is a Windows Mobile... 

Swype Replaces Type On Verzion Samsung Omnia II

Posted by Marilyn Torres on Nov 25, 2009 | 3 Comments

A little over a year ago Chris posted a piece about the Swype software, and yet here is Swype again attempting to change consumers’ perspectives on typing using software keyboards. Since my introduction to software keyboards came in the form of the near-microscopic keys in Windows Mobile 6.0, I was slow to adopt the prediction-correction-ridden virtual-boards. The correction software on even the iPhone still throws... 

Samsung Moment Review – Do you have a moment?

Posted by Chris Leckness on Nov 25, 2009 | 30 Comments

Reviewing this phone has been a pleasure. I passed on reviewing the HTC Hero on Sprint because of the absence of a physical keyboard. That and the fact that Marilyn was looking forward to reviewing it too. The Hero was a great phone, but I had my eyes set on this Sprint Android powered phone. The nice looking keyboard lured me in, I admit it. The Samsung Moment is an Android powered smartphone on the Sprint network that...

Video 1st Look – Samsung Moment on Sprint (Unboxing and Hardware)

Posted by Chris Leckness on Nov 12, 2009 | 2 Comments

 Here is an Android phone that didn’t get much press because of all the hype some of the other Android devices are getting. This one is a Plain Jane Android release with no extra UI layer on top of it. After I did the unboxing and hardware tour video (after the break), I spent an hour getting familiar with it and I was pretty impressed. I know I was impressed with the Hero, but I attributed the great experience...
