It's no secret that Samsung's Galaxy S line of devices has been big sellers. Now, Samsung has released figures that tell us a little more about how successful the company has been in the mobile market. This year, Samsung has sold 300 million mobile handset sales. Of course, the company's Galaxy S and Galaxy S II handsets have made a significant contribution to this milestone, though Samsung's bada smartphones have also played their part. In 2010, Samsung's handset sales were about 280 million. Samsung Celebrates 300 Million Global Handset Sales in 2011 Samsung Seeking Mobile Leadership Through... Read more...
Not too long ago, we took an in-depth, hands-on look at the unlocked version of the Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone. At the time, the phone wasn't available in the US, so we weren't able to show you a hands-on video of a US version of the phone. Now, however, the Samsung Galaxy S II is available through Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile. All of the phones have a similar look and feel, though there are a few differentiating points among the models. We've been testing the Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy S II, otherwise known as the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch for a couple weeks now, and we... Read more...

Samsung and Apple have been fighting legal battles in Asia, Europe and the US, with the majority of victories thus far going to Apple. Samsung has decided to retaliate on its own turf and is planning to ask Korean courts to ban the iPhone 5 as soon as the device is launched. At present, the two companies are engaged in 23 separate legal battles across much of the developed world and more cases are expected. At this point, the two companies are very nearly engaged in a corporate version of world war. "Just after the arrival of the iPhone 5 here, Samsung plans to take Apple to court here for its...

The Samsung Epic 4G Touch is coming to Sprint later this week, but there's still time to preorder the phone if you want to be among the first to get your hands on it. The Epic 4G Touch is expected to be available on September 16 for $199.99 after discounts and with a contract. Walmart shoppers can find an even better deal, however, as the big-box retailer is currently offering the phone for just $99.99 with a new two-year contract. As you'll recall, the Samsung Epic 4G Touch is one of the members of Samsung's Galaxy S II line of smartphones. T-Mobile and AT&T will also be getting variants of... Read more...
When Apple won its initial injunction request against Samsung ten days ago, it was noted that the company had a separate legal proceeding underway in the Netherlands that was aimed at a similar goal. New information suggests that Apple's requests in this case are much broader and aimed at disassembling Samsung's ability to sell products in Europe at virtually every level. Apple's filing requests injunctive relief across Samsung's entire line of Galaxy products including the Galaxy Ace, S, and S II, the Galaxy Tab 7 and 10.1, and the Galaxy Gio, Nexus, 551, Europa, Apollo, and Mini. The Cupertino-based... Read more...
Samsung Mobile has been sending around this invite to various media outlets advertising an event for August 29th. The image is entitled Galaxy_S_II_Invite_v2.jpg, which leads many believe that the famed Galaxy S II is almost ready to make it's American debut. We recently reviewed the global version of this phone, which is shipping in Europe, Latin America and a few other regions. But to date, Samsung has sold over 5 million of the phones, without any help whatsoever from a U.S. carrier. Rumors have been flying about the phone's eventual landing on U.S. soil, and now it looks as if those rumors... Read more...
If the iPod touch is the iPhone without a phone, the Galaxy S WiFi is the same device over on the Android side of things. The company has just launched two incredibly sleek players in Korea, the Galaxy S WiFi 4.0 and WiFi 5.0. The only major difference is the screen size; the 4.0 has a 4" panel, while the 5.0 has a 5" panel. Both will have a 1GHz CPU and ship with Android 2.2, with the 4.0 shipping first in Russia and the 5.0 first in Switzerland. Both are expected to roll out to other nations shortly. Essentially, these two players are similar to the Galaxy S smartphone, but there's no phone aspect... Read more...
Wowsers! It's not often that courtroom battles are interesting, but we're guessing that this is one of those rare occasions where it will indeed have the eye of the tech world for some time to come. According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple (yes, the company that makes the iPad) has just sued Samsung Electronics (yes, the company that makes the rival Galaxy Tab). That's no small deal, and it could open up an entirely new can of worms when it comes to companies "taking inspiration" from similar products. According to the report, Apple has sued Samsung "claiming the Korean electronics giant copied... Read more...
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...

It's tough to believe just how many months ago we reviewed Froyo. It was sunny, summer evening in 2010 when Android 2.2 began hitting the Nexus One, and now, over half a year later, some phones are still awaiting the update. Samsung's Galaxy S line has been a huge hit for the company, with over 10 million units sold worldwide and a version on every major carrier in the U.S. But for whatever reason, Froyo has been very slow to come to these phones. AT&T's version has been left Froyo-less for quite a long while, but it looks as if the company is hoping to correct that. The Froyo update for the... Read more...
T-Mobile USA customers have been waiting for months on end for a "4G" (with "4G" meaning HSPA+ here) version of the Galaxy S, and now they have it. This week, Samsung's Galaxy S 4G has gone on sale at T-Mobile, making it one of what feels like a million variants of this very phone. Samsung has sold well over 10 million of these worldwide, and they've been pretty smart with the marketing. Different versions for different carriers means a lot more sales, and if you're loyal to T-Mobile, they may be clocking in one extra sale. The phone's available now for $199.99 with a 2-year contract, but here's... Read more...
Samsung, like Sony Ericsson and Nokia, had a press event today in Barcelona to kick off the opening of Mobile World Congress. And like SE, Samsung had a few surprises in store for those who came. The first was the next version of the highly successful Galaxy S. That smartphone has sold over 10 million units worldwide, and Samsung (along with Google) is very proud of that fact. Rather than drastically changing the formula, Samsung's making the next version pretty familiar. In fact, it's simply called the Galaxy S II. Rather than renaming a popular device, the company is just throwing a II on the... Read more...
