Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ T-Mobile release bumped up to tomorrow

Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ T-Mobile release bumped up to tomorrow

Apparently T-Mobile USA customers weren't super thrilled when they heard the news about preorders earlier today. Verizon customers are getting their Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ devices before T-Mobile customers, and they were jumping mad about it. As such, CEO John Legere decided to push up the launch of their own models of the device, making them available for general sale starting tomorrow. This means the device will be online only starting at 6AM PT through T-Mobile USA.

Samsung Space Internet may bring the web to the whole wide world

Samsung Space Internet may bring the web to the whole wide world

This week researcher Farooq Khan from Samsung Electronics has published a paper on full earth-covering internet. This system, he suggests, would consist of "thousands of low-cost micro-satellites" that'll be launched into Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) to provide Terabit/s data rate speeds of internet to the whole globe. This system would be able to send data with signal latencies "better than or equal to" the ground-based systems we use today.

Apple patents iPhone Edge style side-display

Apple patents iPhone Edge style side-display

While no Apple patent necessarily guarantees a final product, today's for a curved display is particularly interesting - especially now that, as of this week, Samsung has launched three "Edge" devices.

Sorry, no 128GB Note 5 for you

Sorry, no 128GB Note 5 for you

Yesterday as the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was revealed, several listings of a 128GB (internal storage) edition of the device popped up on the company's own pre-sales site.

The same is true of the Galaxy S6 edge+, a device two 32GB and 64GB internal storage, but no 128GB version, despite early listings suggesting the contrary.

Replaceable Battery and microSD slot on Phones: how critical are they?

Samsung has just unveiled its two latest phablet masterpieces and, naturally, they are the talk of the town. But some of those voices raised aren't as welcoming as Samsung might have hoped. Because just as we expected and equally dreaded, the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ did lack two features: a removable battery and a microSD card slot. And just as expected, it did not sit well with the very same group of people, the "productivity users", that Samsung is trying to win over. But how important are these two features today anyway?

There might be no Galaxy Note 5 for Europe
