Now Barnes & Noble has a 10.1-inch Samsung Nook tablet

Samsung's latest Nook-branded iteration on its Android tablet line-up has been announced, with Barnes & Noble putting the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 up for sale in-store. Following the existing 7-inch Galaxy Tab 4 Nook, released back in August, the new version has - unsurprisingly - a bigger, 10.1-inch HD display, but also introduces a new Nook Software update which improves the UI, as well as promising a better overall shopping experience. Existing Samsung Nook tablet owners shouldn't worry, however, as Samsung has something for them, too.

Samsung teases Android Lollipop for the Galaxy Note 4

Samsung teases Android Lollipop for the Galaxy Note 4

Samsung has finally spoken up about Android 5.0. Or rather, in this case, it's more like a whisper. But we'll take anything over the silence it has been observing for almost a week now. Over at its Twitter account, the Korean OEM is actually advertising the Galaxy Note 4's QHD Super AMOLED display, but it is using a screen filled with bright colored candy of the lollipop kind. It is effectively hinting that Android Lollipop will be coming soon. As to when, we still don't know.

Samsung Chromebook 2 packs Intel chip for entry-level

Samsung Chromebook 2 packs Intel chip for entry-level

Samsung has launched a new version of its Chromebook 2, an 11.6-inch notebook running Google's Chrome OS and powered by an Intel processor rather than one of the South Korean's own Exynos ARM chips. The new notebook will drop at under $250, challenging low-cost Windows laptops in the process, while battery life will be a healthy nine hours according to Samsung's estimates. On the outside, meanwhile, there's a faux-leather finish which is likely to prove divisive among Chromebook buyers.

Samsung unveils Exynos 7 Octa, 20nm 64-bit Cortex-A57/A53

Samsung unveils Exynos 7 Octa, 20nm 64-bit Cortex-A57/A53

Samsung has an announcement, but unfortunately it isn't related to the rain of lollipops over the Internet. Or rather, it can be taken as indirectly related to Android 5.0 Lollipop too. The Korean electronics giant has just announced the newest member of its Exynos SoC family with a substantial jump in model number. The Exynos 7 Octa, with four Cortex-A57 and four Cortex-A53 cores, is one of the very few to be made using a 20 nm process. Curiously, Samsung isn't even mentioning the fact that this is a 64-bit chip.

Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition with Lollipop release imminent

Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition with Lollipop release imminent

While we did, honestly, expect the Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition to be launched several months ago at this point, it would seem that they’re finally ready to roll. With the launch of Android 5.0 Lollipop and the official preview we saw courtesy of Samsung itself earlier this month, there can’t be much time between now and the GPE. What with Google’s update of their Android homepage still including the elusive Google Play Edition of the Galaxy S5 alongside the new Nexus family, we have only to ask - what’s the holdup?

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review: Phablet Refocused

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review: Phablet Refocused

Samsung can’t afford to stumble with the Galaxy Note 4. The fourth-gen phablet arrives as Samsung wakes up to a new, and not especially rewarding, phase in its mobile life: the discovery that throwing a hundred designs at the market and hoping at least some of them stick no longer has the same sales success as it once did. At a time so fiercely competitive, Samsung can’t count on simply having originally created the Note 4’s segment to commend this latest model. It needs to deliver as much in the hand as its specifications promise to on the page.

Galaxy Note 4 bend test disputes Samsung’s claims

Galaxy Note 4 bend test disputes Samsung’s claims

You may have thought it was all over, but apparently it isn't. Perhaps as long as there are new phones coming out, there will be bend tests to be done. At least until people tire of hearing the same things over and over again. Unsurprisingly, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 isn't immune to such a trend and even Samsung itself succumbed to the fad. However, Unbox Therapy, who could be credited or blamed for spreading the #bendgate further, might have something to say about it.

Galaxy Note Edge available in Japan starting 23 October

Galaxy Note Edge available in Japan starting 23 October

Since it's a limited edition smartphone, the availability of the Galaxy Note Edge is always going to be something worth noting. Quite surprisingly it isn't its hometown of Korea or the main markets of the US and the UK that will be getting dibs on the eccentric smartphone. Instead Samsung has first launched its curved edge screen smartphone in the Japanese market, supposedly owing to the country's culture of embracing the latest, and sometimes the strangest, technologies, which is what the Galaxy Note Edge definitely is.
