LightSquared and Sharp team up for smartphone and tablet development

Sharp has some pretty cool smartphones and tablets, sadly most of that stuff never makes it to the US for geeks to try out. LightSquared is a company that is new to the US and is looking to offer a nationwide 4G network at wholesale prices. That means no direct to consumer sales.

The original ship date had been set for September 15. That ship date has now been delayed a few weeks with a new ship date set for October 1.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Australian launch further delayed under Apple assault

Samsung's concessions to the ongoing Apple legal onslaught continue, with news that the company has agreed to put Australian launch plans for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 on ice until September 30. The agreement - which comes despite Samsung's earlier protestations that it had a separate version of the 10-inch tablet for Australia, that did not infringe any Apple technology - will see Apple detail the patents it alleges its Korean foe has overstepped by September 5, the Sydney Morning Herald reports, with Samsung responding by September 16. Until the end of the month, however, Samsung has acquiesced to neither selling nor even advertising the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the country.
