Things aren't looking very good for Samsung. A German court upped the design lawsuit stakes by permanently banning it from selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in Germany, calling its design too similar to Apple's iPad. Get ready for oval tablets.
Just two days after it was unveiled with much fanfare at the IFA show in Berlin, Samsung has removed all traces of the Galaxy 7.7 tablet from their display.
Is it a mini tablet or supersized smartphone? You can categorize the Samsung Galaxy Note and its 5.3-inch screen however you want, because it packs a ridiculous 1280x800 resolution Super AMOLED screen, a pair of beefy cameras and a stylus.
HP's end to webOS (although, it'll still be supported, for now) was heartbreaking for fans of the OS, but there's possible good news. Rumor has it Samsung might buy webOS from HP and give it the love it truly deserves.
By now, it's a well known fact that Apple is suing the pants off Samsung for "copying" its iPad with tablets that resemble its design. In Samsung's defense, Apple didn't invent the modern day tablet form, Stanley Kubrick's 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey did. Geek fight!
Smartphone screens are going to start rivaling laptops and tablets real soon. A leaked Samsung roadmap shows the Korean electronic giant is working on two smartphones with resolutions that start at 1280x720 — that's nearly as sharp as a 13-inch MacBook Pro's screen.
Win one for Apple. After suing Samsung for copying its iPad and iPhone designs with similar competitors, a German court's been granted an injunction to block all sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the European Union. Yowza!
When this was first reported, a lot of blogs (look here and here) — DVICE included — picked up on this story with the same slant. That is to say, harp on Samsung for stating the obvious, and then leave it at that. Turns out, when you actually read the company's report, things get a lot more interesting. -Ed
We've seen plenty of solar powered laptops and netbooks over the years, but they've all been either some sort of concept, or available only in other countries. Now Samsung will start selling one right here in the U.S.
Lately, there's been a lot of talk about tablets and smartphones doubling up as gaming consoles when linked to an HDTV. Mobile game publisher Gameloft has a better idea: cut out the middle hardware and put the video games straight on Smart TVs.
