When it comes to smartphones and wireless data services, 4G is definitely one of the hottest features today. And while various wireless service providers are touting their 4G networks and upcoming plans for 4G, there are still a relatively small number of smartphones that actually support 4G technology and can take full advantage of the speed boost and other advantages 4G provides. The latest 4G device from T-Mobile is the Samsung Galaxy S 4G. This phone works on T-Mobile's HSPA+ 4G network, which uses a different technical standard than Sprint or Verizon Wireless' 4G networks. According to T-Mobile,... Read more...

"Smaller, faster, less expensive," might just be the motto over at Samsung these days. At least that's what it feels like with Samsung's announcement today that it has started sampling low-density, multilevel cell (MLC)-based solid state drives (SSDs) that are "only 30 percent of the size of 2.5-inch SSDs," "higher performance," and "highly cost-efficient to manufacture." Samsung is aiming these low-capacity drives at the burgeoning low-cost PC market. Starting next month, Samsung will start mass-producing 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB SSDs using this new manufacturing technique:"We've refined our manufacturing... Read more...
While the international press and Olympic athletes complain about the environmentally-unfriendly air quality in Beijing, Samsung plans to bring a little green to the games today with its new E200 Eco bioplastic cell phone. Unlike traditional plastics, which are derived from (non-renewable) petroleum-based products, bioplastics are derived from (renewable) biological sources, such as corn. The E200 Eco is actually not the first bioplastic phone from Samsung. This last June, Samsung released the W510 and the F268 phones in Asia. However, the W510 and F268 phones both use traditional plastics and... Read more...
The price of LCD screens has steadily declined and in the last few years, larger monitors are starting to become relatively affordable. This is especially evident in the 19", 20" and 22" categories, where we see a significant number of products in the sub-$300 range. However 24" and larger screens still remained premium products until very recently. In the last year or so we have seen the first 24" screens to dip below the $400 mark appear on the market. The products in this new category of value oriented 24" screens almost universally combine a large and cheap TN panel with a basic monitor housing... Read more...

If there is any doubt that Solid State Drives (SSDs) are the next medium for laptop storage, then don't tell the folks over at Samsung. They probably won't have time to take your call anyway, because they're busy ramping up production of Samsung's 128GB SSDs in both 1.8-inch and 2.5-inch form factors. This is in addition to the 64GB SSDs that Samsung ramped up production on only a few days earlier. The Samsung SSDs use Multi-Level Cell (MLC) technology, which according to Wikipedia is:"MLC NAND flash is a flash memory technology using multiple levels per cell to allow more bits to be stored as...

Samsung has started spreading the word to its customers that NAND flash memory chips are going to be harder to come by for a little while as Samsung diverts much of its available supply to Apple. When Apple places an order for 50 million 8Gb NAND chips, it shouldn't be a surprise that Apple gets to cut the line and is offered a spot at the front of the queue. NAND flash memory chips are used in USB flash drives, MP3 players, cell phones, and other small-form-factor consumer electronics devices. What does Apple need with 50 million NAND chips? Two words: iPhone 3G. Apple is gearing up to distribute... Read more...
Everyone's fascinated with the Apple iPhone. Apple's announced their new, third generation (3G) model is coming out on July 11, and all the news outlets have been pawing over the details of the handset and the plan. The iPhone has the potential to be one of those concepts that becomes the name people use to refer to all items of its type, like Kleenex or Frigidaire or Xerox once did. Not many people are that interested in the Samsung/Sprint version of the small slab smartphone with a touchscreen and not a lot of buttons. Maybe they should be. It's better than an iPhone in a lot of ways.•... Read more...

OLED displays share the promise of low power, high def, ultra-high contrast goodness.  In fact Samsung claims their new line of AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic LED) panels boast 20X the contrast ratio of standard LCDs.  In addition, since the panels do not require any back-lighting, they consume much less power, so they are well suited for portable applications obviously.  Also, since they're based on LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology, viewing angles, response times and brightness are also wonderfully impressive.  Though Samsung is currently shipping OLED-based screens...

Samsung has a couple of new products that break the mold on what you might expect from computer peripherals. Samsung's Dual Display 2263DX is a dual display with a twist. It is actually a normal 22-inch LCD display that also includes a 7-inch "companion" display that attaches to the larger display, "via a pivoting, swiveling arm which allows it to be positioned on either side or above the main display for a truly comfortable, customizable work environment." The smaller display uses the USB-based DisplayLink technology.         The 22-inch display features a native resolution of 1,680x1,050; while... Read more...
