With Mobile World Congress in full swing, Samsung's oddly quiet about its plans for a Galaxy S II successor. That's okay, because as usual, the rumor mill is hot on clues and the latest rumors hailing from BGR say the Galaxy S III will have some impressive new features.
With the way smartphone screens are getting sharper and larger, it's only a matter of time before those ugly black bezels that surround a screen disappear entirely. If any company can design a bezel-less smartphone, it's Samsung.
As we brace ourselves for Mobile World Conference and the impending onslaught of mobile announcements, Samsung has leaked its own Galaxy Note 10.1. That's a Galaxy Note — not a Galaxy Tab — meaning it'll probably be similar to the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note. Haha, will it be a 10-inch smartphone?
The Galaxy Note has an identity crisis it needs to clear up. On the one hand, it's sort of a mini tablet due to its huge 5.3-inch display (largest of any smartphone on sale) and fancy stylus. On the other other hand, it also functions exactly like an Android smartphone on AT&T's 4G LTE network, meaning you'll be required to get a two-year contract chained to your leg and pay for a voice plan. Either way, AT&T just let us rub our greasy fingers all over a Note. Read on for our hands-on impressions.
Look what the cat dragged in. Samsung's finally given its first 7-inch Galaxy Tab Android tablet a proper successor with sharper screen, an additional camera and the delicious Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Talk about long overdue update.
The Galaxy Note is a different breed of mobile device. With a 5.3-inch screen, it's too large to be a comfortable smartphone and too small to be a real-sized tablet. Yet, it still manages to be a very formidable pocket companion. AT&T's priced and dated the device, so get your wallet out.
Haven't jumped on the tablet train yet? Good, because an informed bee says that Samsung's going to announce the beefiest Galaxy Tab yet, with a fetching high resolution screen and the latest bite of Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Sounds yummy.
I don't know about you, but I've been fantasizing about a Surface table ever since I got my first demo back at CES 2008. It's only really been for sale for businesses and stuff, but Samsung is now officially selling their own version of Microsoft's slick multi-touch interface.
CES 2012 is all about ultrabooks. Last year, CES was all about tablets. Before that, CES was all about smartphones. Notice a theme? No optical drives. We're not done with optical media forever (even if we might want to be), and Samsung has come to the rescue with an external optical drive that can work with anything.
CES starts next week, and already the hype machine has been turned to 11. Earlier this week, LG proudly announced it be showing off at its booth "the future of TV technology," "the world's largest OLED HDTV" at CES. Uh-huh. And Karolina Kurkova has promised me a date.
