Samsung’s slew of Galaxy tablets

galaxynotepro02It looks like those rumours about Samsung pushing out new Android tablets might be accurate. A new report clearly names three new tablets coming in the first quarter of 2014. One of them is the previously-rumoured 12-inch tablet we have heard hints about throughout the year. This tablet will be called the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and will supposedly be announced between February 3rd and February 9th. That’s not all. We also have word of a Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 and a Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4. Here are the current rumours regarding these devices in a quote below.

Quote:
The exact release of the 12.2-inch tablet is said to happen in the week that starts on February 3 and ends on February 9. It will come with 2,560×1,600 resolution, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage space, and a 9,500 mAh battery. It will run Android 4.4 KitKat from day one, and it’s going to weigh 750 grams. Its model numbers will be SM-P900 and SM-P905. Both Wi-Fi-only and LTE capable versions will be available, and the tablet will be out in black and white.This, however, isn’t going to be the only tablet that Samsung will launch in the first quarter of 2014. We’ve already told you about the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite, the cheapest tablet ever to come out of the Korean outlet. But alongside these two, Samsung will also release the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 and Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1.The Tab Pro 8.4 is obviously expected to come with an 8.4-inch display, and its model numbers will be SM-T320 and SM-T325. It will arrive in the sixth week of the year, just like the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. It will sport 16 GB of storage and will be out in black and white.

The Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 (model numbers SM-T520 and SM-T525) is going to land sometime between February 10 and February 16. Both Pro tablets will have Wi-Fi-only and LTE-capable versions. The Tab Pro 10.1 will also be offered in black and white, and it too will have 16 GB of storage.

Samsung announce a Gamepad

Samsung announce a GamepadSamsung today introduced the Samsung Mobile Console GamePad and application to improve so popular online gaming experience for Samsung Galaxy devices.

The  Samsung GamePad   instantly transforms Galaxy smartphones or tablets into portable gaming console or even a home console. For its practical design and durable steel structure, the GamePad is attachable to mobile devices ranging from 4 inches to 6.3 inches, which allows users to play from anywhere. Users can also connect Galaxy devices to your TV through a HDMI cable.

The controller design is quite similar to the PlayStation controller analog sticks parallel with each other. But the GamePad is a bit smaller than a PlayStation 3 controller has a standard directional pad, two analog joysticks, four buttons and two triggers.

The press release leads us to believe that the Gamepad work with almost any Android device with Android 4.3 or higher system, but there are special services reserved for Galaxy devices. For example, the PLAY button allows users to quickly access the “Mobile Console” application to view the titles that can be purchased. Samsung says there are 35 games ready for launch dedicated specifically for the Gamepad.

At this time, we do not know the price of Gamepad. Currently available in selected markets in Europe and can branch to other regions in the coming weeks.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Review

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 ReviewThe Samsung Galaxy Note was a device that many figured would die at launch. It was a gamble thankfully turning out to be a good one. The device was the first of a new craze and met with great reviews and only the cynical labelled it “too large.” Here we are two years later and the second revision of that ground break device has been launched and the eyes are on it. Can the King of the Phablets play a hat trick?

I have used the Samsung Galaxy Note II for a full year and would continue to be using it now had it not been for a slight accident that resulted in a cracked screen, a home repair left the device non-replaceable under insurance and a tear forming in the corner of my eye. “Worry not” I figured “the Note III will be here soon and shall pack all kinds of awesome, I shall never look back.”

Certainly, it arrived with an almighty clap of thunder but I did not hit any plastic to keep it in my life, and here’s why.

Samsung loses another fight with Apple

apple-vs-samsung1_2The seemingly tit-for-tat battle between Apple and Samsung has been rumbling on for quite some time and there have been wins for both sides during the legal wrangles.

However, Samsung’s latest loss has come as something of a surprise and it’s happened in Korea, Samsung’s own home.

Patent violation claims have been raised by Samsung against Apple and Samsung steadfastly maintain that Apple are infringing upon key patents and have been calling for a sales ban on a number of Apple products in South Korea – including the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPad 2. The three separate claims are based on three patent infringement allegations these Apple products were using mobile messaging technology from Samsung.

In a statement Samsung said:

“We are disappointed by the court’s decision, as Apple has continued to infringe our patented mobile technologies, we will continue to take the measures necessary to protect our intellectual property rights.”

The sales ban was rejected in the Korean court and the claim of around £58k in damages was also dismissed.

This will be a bitter loss for Samsung but the legal tussle between the two tech-giants is sure to wage on for some time to come.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 with metal body?

w640There was talk months ago about Samsung releasing a few different variants of the Samsung Galaxy S4. A tough and rugged one that could accompany you on adventure holidays or onto the building site. A larger, almost dedicated camera version. And finally a higher quality version as many have given the majority of Samsung’s flack for their all plastic construction.

The recently release of the Galaxy Gear with it’s impressive steel construction has gotten some rumours going that the S5 might be of metal construction. Instead we see that the Samsung Galaxy J is being launch in Taiwan. Additionally the phone has 4G LTE-A technology inside it.

Here are the features we could dig as it is essentially the same as and S4

Phone Features

  • Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen 1080 x 1920 pixels, 5.0 inches
  • Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 Quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400
  • RAM 3 GB
  • Primary camera 13 MP, 4128 x 3096 pixels
  • Secondary camera  2 MP,[email protected]
  • Works on 2G, 3G and 4G networks
  • Android OS, v4.3 (Jelly Bean), upgradable to v4.4 KitKat
  • Li-Ion 2600 mAh battery

More Samsung Devices to get KitKat?

samsung-androidMany manufacturers have already been making announcements about the availability of Android 4.4 KitKat for their current range of devices with updates expected from HTC, LG and Samsung over the coming weeks for flagship devices.

However, Android 4.4 KitKat was designed to be much more optimised than the previous versions of the OS and is capable of running on devices with a lower specification with slower CPU’s and as little as 512MB RAM being possible. But there have yet to be any announcements from any of the manufacturers regarding the possibility of offering an Android 4.4 update to older models.

But that could be set to change if the information that SamMobile have managed to get their hands on. They have apparently managed to secure some internal documentation from Samsung that suggest that many Samsung smartphones are ‘under investigation’ for upgrade to 4.4 KitKat.

These devices include the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, S3 Mini, Ace 3, Galaxy S, Galaxy Core, Galaxy Fame and Galaxy Fresh.

At this stage there’s obviously no guarantee that any of these devices will see such an OS update but it IS good to see that it is at least being looked in to and there is a further hope that if Samsung do release updates for older models then the likes of HTC, LG and others will be almost forced to follow suit.

Samsung calls retrial to halt

apple-samsung-logo1Yup, they are at it again. In the Apple Vs. Samsung trial that is never ending, Samsung has called the whole thing into question based on the testimony from the Patent Office which suggests that the pinch-to-zoom feature Apple has been eager to defend may not even be legitimate. The Patent Office’s statement regarding patent no. 7,844,915 doesn’t invalidate Apple’s claim; it is just that the company will need to provide more evidence to support their claims.

Samsung, in response said, “This PTO decision calls into question the entire jury verdict in this trial. During its presentation, Apple made a deliberate decision not to separate the damages between the different asserted patents. Therefore, it will be impossible to determine what allocation of damages belong to the invalid ‘915 patent versus the other patents. It would be unjust to have damages evaluated and awarded on a patent found to be invalid by the PTO.”

The retrial picked up last Tuesday to decide specifically how much Samsung owed Apple, given that a previous jury had already declared that infringement had, in fact, taken place. Regardless of how the jury is swayed this time, next year a new patent trial between the electronics manufacturers will kick off – starting the slap fight all over again. I can’t help but think the only people who will profit out of this ongoing wrangle are the Law firms attached.

Samsung Galaxy Gear shipping higher amounts than anticipated

Galaxy-Gear-006-Set1-Front_SixDespite critical reviews and an unappealing price-tag, it appears that Samsung’s Galaxy Gear smartwatch is turning out to be a solid success. According to a couple of reports, Samsung has shipped using freight forwarders around 800,000 units to retailers world-wide. Additionally, 50,000 units have already been actually sold to customers in South Korea alone. This has far surpassed Samsung’s own initial expectations. These numbers also put it far ahead of competing devices from both Pebble and Sony.

Samsung issued a statement regarding the surprise success of the device, “It’s the most sold wearable watch available in the market place…and we plan to expand its availability by expanding mobile devices that work with the Gear.”

One of the reasons for the increased success of the device can mainly be attributed to incentive programs to help push the device out the door. This includes bundling it with the Galaxy Note III, and there were even UK carriers currently offering it for free if customers purchase the Note III on a two-year contract.

Of course, there have also been reports that up to 30% of consumers in the U.S. have returned the device, which does not bode well for its future sales. It will be interesting to see how the sell-through numbers match up with the shipping to retail numbers when everything is finally tallied. Regardless, shipping out 800,000 units to retailers in only 2 months is nothing to sniff at.
