Samsung GALAXY S 4 Hands-on

Samsung GALAXY S 4 Hands-on

If success is judged by anticipation, the Samsung GALAXY S 4 is already a winner. Hotly discussed in the months leading up to today's big reveal, expectations for the phone have varied wildly from a ground-shaking rethink to a buff and polish of the best-selling Galaxy S III. The end result, though, treads a line between the two: familiar and yet bursting with new functionality, and refined in ways that, while not perhaps the most headline-catching, nonetheless keep Samsung's hardware at the top of its game. Read on for our hands-on first impressions.

Samsung REX series aims for Nokia’s pie with “smart feature phones”

Samsung REX series aims for Nokia’s pie with “smart feature phones”

This week the folks at Samsung have revealed the REX series, what they're calling "smart feature phones" working with the company's own "TouchWiz" user interface - but this time without Android underneath. Each Samsung smartphone to have been released over the past several years either works with Samsung's TouchWiz UI or has been a rather unique addition to the family - the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was one of these, working with a Google-only version of Android per the "Nexus" brand's legacy. Now with a series of Java-based OS-running Smart Feature Phones, Samsung is ready to take on the world - and specifically Nokia's Asha lineup.

Samsung Galaxy Chat pairs QWERTY candybar with Ice Cream Sandwich

Samsung Galaxy Chat pairs QWERTY candybar with Ice Cream Sandwich

Android smartphones with non-sliding QWERTY keyboards are still something of a rarity, so forgive us for getting unduly interested in Samsung's Galaxy Chat, freshly announced today. Pairing a 3-inch QVGA touchscreen and a thumb-board, the Galaxy Chat may be something of a disappointment in most of its specifications, but a footnote by the Korean company confirms at least one curious tidbit: an LTE version is in the pipeline.

So long, RIM, and thanks for all the phones

So long, RIM, and thanks for all the phones

Oh RIM. Where did it all go wrong? The company has been flailing for some time now, but its dismal financials on the latest earnings call paired with the announcement that BlackBerry 10 won’t make an appearance until the first quarter of next year has almost certainly sealed RIM’s fate. It’s not quite the end of the road just yet, but the light at the end of the tunnel is growing dimmer with each passing day.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Review

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Review

This week we've gotten the next Galaxy Player family member in the house with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. What's that, you say? The Galaxy Tab 2 is a tablet and not a Galaxy Player? I beg to differ, ladies and gentlemen, as the Samsung world has done a big split in recent months, with no less than the Galaxy Tab 2 line heading in the direction of the media player while the Galaxy Note line (including the 10.1, for example) moves in the direction the Galaxy Tab 10.1 original started in back at Google I/O in 2011. Have a peek at what the Tab 2 line continues here in the 2 10.1 for the media world.
