When Tim Cook took the stage on March 7th to announce the new iPad, he controversially said that the tablet would be a good replacement for a traditional home console.

Samsung has revealed a white version of its Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, with the unwieldy-named phone set to go on sale this weekend, Sunday January 8.

Now we don't often review cases for much of anything here on SlashGear, but when I saw this bulky masterpiece of a rubber and plastic prison for the Epic 4G Touch, I knew I had to take a closer peek at it. The full name of this case probably wins the war for long names of cases since its host has the big hunk of it: Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Ballistic SG. How's that ring your bell for a shelf name? Have a quick look with yours truly at this massive case and see why they put an exclamation point after the cover's "DROP PROTECTION!"
I have flown more than one remote controlled flying what not including helicopters and airplanes. The thing they have all had in common was a very short first flight followed by a horrendous crash rendering a chance of a second flight moot. I can only imagine the carnage and repair bill I would wrap up if I had the chance to fly this drone that a German effects firm made for one of those crazy expensive Red Epic cameras.
With the iPhone 4S having been updated to the Apple A5 dual-core processor like the iPad 2 features having up to 7x better graphics performance you can bet we'll be seeing some simply amazing games coming soon. Just for a tease Apple has shown a bit of the graphics prowess we can expect on iOS devices with the A5 with the new upcoming release of Infinity Blade 2.
As it does come to pass with all amazing and fantastic devices, so too must it happen with the Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch - a teardown, one that will leave this device in bits for the whole world to see.

The Samsung EPIC 4G Touch has gone on sale, finally bringing a Galaxy S II variant to the US market.

There's also WiMAX for high-speed connectivity on the move.
Let's call it frustration, not jealousy. Europe and Asia have been enjoying the charms of the Samsung Galaxy S II for several months now, leaving the US to suffer a serious case of the green-eyed monster. The first of the US variants has finally arrived however, the Samsung EPIC 4G Touch, a CDMA twist on the phone we've been waiting for, but has the charm faded over time?

Walmart has begun pre-orders for the Now Network's version of the Samsung Galaxy S II known as the Epic 4G Touch and it's offering it up at an awesome price. Originally said to cost $199 with a new two-year contract, the handset can now be had from Walmart for only $99 on contract.
Welcome Back to the Future, where the most widely anticipated pair of sneakers ever conceived have been all but confirmed by NIKE as being about to come into existence - IT'S ABOUT TIME. In a teaser handed out to select sneaker-heavy publishing groups, a midnight call from NIKE quickly turned into a room with only a black box with the swoop logo on it, an iPod Shuffle, and a card which read "Play Me." Once Dr. Emmett Brown was heard saying “Welcome to Los Angeles. If my calculations are correct, over the next 24 hours you are about to see some SERIOUS SH*T!", the publisher's next move was to open the box and find a pair of the Doc's classic 2015 shades and a message that invited them to an event that promised nothing less than the sneakers themselves!
UPDATE: FULL DETAILS have been released about what's now called the 2011 NIKE MAG - most excellent!
