Samsung continues to unload with both barrels on the tablet market, releasing one product after another. Consumers can choose from 7-inch, 8.9-inch, and 10.1-inch sizes; WiFi-only or carrier-specific versions, including models for Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint; and a couple of different storage options too. (Who knows, by the time you read this, there could be even more.) Today, we’re looking specifically at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus (WiFi, 16GB). There is no shortage of competition in the 7-inch tablet space, including offerings from (if you want to get alphabetical about... Read more...
Did you know that Samsung has redesigned, ever so slightly, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 for release in Germany? That's an area where the company has hit serious backlash with Apple, and in order to avoid sales bans, the Galaxy Tab 10.1N was born. It isn't too different than the 10" Android slate that's already on sale in much of the world. But, some differences are definitely there. On the exterior, you'll find a slightly more noticable metal lip, repositioned speakers and not much else. But, evidently that's good enough to satisfy the lawyers. You have see the new 10.1N in the video below -- it's like... Read more...

Just a couple of weeks ago, Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus--without a lot of details, and without any word on pricing or a U.S. launch date.

The devices will feature the Peel Smart Remote TV application, which allows users to find, watch, and discover new shows using the tablet, which will ship with infrared capabilities to control home theater components.

Apple's legal war with Samsung has crossed multiple continents and had far-reaching effects, including forcing Samsung to pull its Galaxy Tab 7.7 from display at the recent IFA exhibition in Berlin. The company has won a significant victory in the EU; Samsung Germany has been banned from selling the Galaxy 10.1 tablet in any EU country. The wording on the ban is specific and its full impact is unclear. While it applies to all EU countries, it only impacts one division of Samsung--Samsung Germany. Other Samsung divisions operating in the EU are able to continue selling the Tab 10.1, and retailers... Read more...

IFA's kicking off this week in Berlin, and that means a bevy of new gadgets to make your current gadgets look mighty old. Samsung is first out of the block with two new impressive pieces of kit, the Galaxy S II LTE and the Galaxy TAb 8.9 LTE. Rather than just shoving an LTE module into these and calling it a day, Samsung's actually retooling 'em to some extent. The stock Galaxy S II is already amongst our favorite Android smartphones, and it looks like this LTE build will be just as impressive. The new model will sport a larger 4.5-inch display, a more powerful 1.5GHz dual-core CPU (over 1.2GHz... Read more...
Someone snooping around Samsung's Mobile Unpacked application has discovered a trio of logos for potential devices to be unveiled at the IFA trade show in September. The names on the logos are listed as "Samsung Galaxy Note," "Samsung Wave 3," and "Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7." These suggest that the company plans on announcing three new devices during its press conference on September 1: a new phone with Samsung's own Bada OS, a new Android tablet that will likely have a 7.7-inch screen based off of the current naming system, and a mysterious new device known only as the Galaxy Note. Based off of the... 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.

Apple won a major victory against Samsung today; a German court has banned the Korean manufacturer from selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the entire European Union. The ruling is the latest setback for Samsung in its battle with Apple over allegations that its devices infringe on Apple's patents with respect to aspects of the iPhone / iPad's design and GUI. The injunction blocks the sale of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the entire EU save for the Netherlands, where a separate court case with a similar goal is being decided. Samsung's comments on the injunction indicate it had no idea the ruling was coming.... Read more...

Let's face it: air travel today just isn't what it once was. It's more of a chore than anything else, and it seems that every single airline is out to get you, the consumer. But every so often, those twenty terrible airline stories are broken up by something positive, and that's what we have here. Samsung Mobile has just landed a wild agreement that really helps the partner airline as much, if not more so, than Samsung themselves. The agreement is with American Airlines, and the deal involves Galaxy Tab 10.1 units on a plane. Samuel L. Jackson would certainly approve. The deal aims to provide premium-class... Read more...
