The picture above seemed like the Galaxy Tab is trying to say “When I grow up, I will win the iPad”, and the iPad is grinning behind it. Samsung seemed to be getting ready to market their latest Froyo tablet, as we see more marketing materials showing up on the net. The video below previews the tablet yet again. Things that you’ll see in the video, Android 2.2, WCDMA 3G, 802.11n Wi-Fi, a 16:10 screen ratio, a front-facing camera “dedicated to video calling,” SDHC memory expandability, and a DMB tuner for those TV-crazy Koreans are all listed on the spec sheet, but you’ll be wanting to see the Galaxy Tab’s UI in motion. It looks really silky smooth on certain aspect, but not all. Nevertheless, should be able to give Apple some cause for concern. Read more…
Corning, the maker of Gorilla Glass, has announced that the Samsung Galaxy will employ the alkali-aluminosilicate glass shield. The glass is similar to the “helicopter windshield” Retina stuff Apple uses on their iPhone 4, which was rumoured to be Gorilla Glass at one point, and while neither tech is impervious to shattering, they certainly can take a beating.
Samsung is preparing to launch their version of the Android tablet. ‘Short, sweet, yet dramatic’. The Android tablet from Samsung will be called the ‘Tab’. Read more…
If ‘removing-the-back-cover-take-out-the-battery-plung-in-another-push-back-back-cover’ gets too complicated for some users when their Samsung Galaxy S (or any of the wide varieties) gets dry up, Samsung has yet another accessory for you. The Samsung Galaxy S Power Pack. This power pack will sincerely allow additional 8.5 hours of talk time when you run out of juice while gossiping with your BFFs. Yeah, it’s such an annoyance to remove the battery when you’re on the phone. That’s why this power pack is ‘so’ convenient. What’s more, you’re getting an additional GPS radio. Geddit? Additional GPS radio! Woohoo! Someone in Samsung must’ve smoked too much weeds.

Yes, finally I’m seeing this coming. The arrival of mass invasion from USB 3.0 drives and gadgets. Do you smell the ‘awsm’-ness of this? I’m bloody hell excited right now. If you’ve just bought an external hard drive of any brand, look away please. For the others, let’s get ready your wallet, coz Sammy’s just updated their S2 portable USB hard drive with a ‘blaztingly’ speedy USB 3.0 and 7,200 RPM spindle speed that should spin you crazily.
It seemed that Samsung is serious about challenging Apple. They already have a PMP running on Android. Now they’re giving their PMP a ‘Galaxy S’ look. With a 4-inch AMOLED screen, a glamorous 1GHz processor (is that really necessary?), 3MP camera, and Wi-Fi connectivity, we have a direct competitor to Apple’s iPod Touch! With the 3MP at the back, it’s even a competitor to the upcoming iPod Touch with FaceTime. Watch out Apple, somebody’s behind ya.

Samsung latest 3.5-inch EcoGreen desktop hard disk managed to get 2TB capacity with three platters, what its previous F3EG model only managed with four platters. That’s 667GB per platter, what Samsung calls the world’s highest areal density, environmentally friendly hard disk drive on the market. Specifically, this 3.0Gbps SATA disk with a 32MB buffer brings about a 19 percent improved standby performance and requires 23 percent less power in standby mode than its older brother, the EcoGreen F3EG. Better yet, it does all this for only $120 ($60 less!) when it hit the market in early September, considering both are under the green-series. Looks like HDD prices are getting lower again, yesh!
Windows Phone 7 will be hitting retail is just about few months’ time now. Engadget had a phone with Windows Phone 7 OS build-in, courtesy of Samsung, and had a review of it. So far the review has been a mixture of greatness and few let downs. For instance, there’s no copy’n’paste clipboard, and there’s no multitasking for 3rd party developed applications.
But other than that, the phone’s been very snippy and super-fast in response. The design and layout is also very refreshing, very much drifted away from the typical icon styles of Apple’s iOS and Google’s Andoird. More like Microsoft’s Windows Start Menu style cascaded in 2D but with great 3D effects at times. Watch the video below to have a good idea of how it turns out.
Remember Tony Stark’s transparent smartphone? Well there are some very smart people out there, that go further a distance and done something to have the ‘similar’ effect.
If you own a Samsung Galaxy S, you can download Samsung’s custom Android app called Road SMS. It’s a simple text messaging program, but instead of the usual backdrop of your phone, Road SMS displays a live video feed from the rear of the phone behind the UI.
While the whole world goes crazy over the newly launched iPhone 4 and iPad, Apple is already hard at work to continue their innovations. Remember the small 5-inch like touchscreen panels that surfaced on the web? It’s confirmed to be from Apple. Taiwanese web site DigiTimes reported that Apple has placed new orders with Taiwan-based component makers, for 5.6-inch, 7-inch, and 9.7-inch iPad models. What’s more, these screens might also be OLED based. Rumors have it that these 5.6-inch and 7-inch models are meant to target the ebook market.
