Ice Cream Sandwich launcher app Hands-on [Video]

When we heard today that the folks at Syndicate Apps (a third-party developer group known for their fun pre-release Android antics) were creating an Ice Cream Sandwich launcher, we just had to get our hands on it as soon as possible. So when they dropped their first version of what we know at this moment may well be Ice Cream Sandwich, or Android 2.4 for handsets, as the developer team making this app call it, we went to downloading and now have a hands-on video for you to take a look at. What you're going to see is a few different ways to launch apps, a slightly different look to the interface, and the way you can download this free launcher for yourself.

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? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Samsung Galaxy S II gets Asphalt 6 HD top-class racing game download FREE

Starting this week, all you users holding a Samsung Galaxy S II (only the international I9100 or the Korean version, mind you,) may download a special edition WCG 2011 version of one of the greatest racing games to have been released in the history of the world* thus far, Gameloft's Asphalt 6: ADRENALINE HD. *Of course this is your narrator's own opinion, but the ability to rock forth with wicked beautiful auto machines at hyper-fast speeds, crashing into your opponents to take them out of the race as you go, is certainly a force to be reckoned with. Now Galaxy S II users accessing their Samsung Apps store will be able to download this otherwise several-dollar-costing application completely for free.

Samsung’s Gavin Kim Makes Clear Stance on webOS, Confirms Galaxy S II Release Limits

Samsung’s Gavin Kim Makes Clear Stance on webOS, Confirms Galaxy S II Release Limits

This week at Samsung's Galaxy S II announcement event in New York City, Vice President of Samsung's Consumer & Enterprise Services Gavin Kim spoke briefly with SlashGear on a couple of rather relevant subjects: Samsung's future with webOS (or lack thereof) and the future of the Galaxy S II in the USA. Having a keen sense of what the press and the public might have a wild heyday with as far as official statements go, Kim refrained from making any breaking fact drops or, as I might call it, Electropolitical gaffes. Instead Kim reinforced our already strong faith in the Samsung Telecommunications brand by noting that it was the market that decided where Samsung would make its next set of moves.

Samsung Galaxy Note vs Tab 7.7 vs Galaxy S II

Samsung Galaxy Note vs Tab 7.7 vs Galaxy S II

This week at IFA 2011 in Berlin we've been given the opportunity have quite a few hands-on looks at products from a handful of vendors, but it's the Samsung stand that's got us most interested as their newest line of products are so very comparable to one another. This week revealed to us two brand new devices, that being the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the Samsung Galaxy Note, the former being the next tablet device in the Galaxy Tab line, the latter being what Samsung is describing as the perfect half-way point between smartphone and tablet. Then there's the Samsung Galaxy S II as it exists on the international market right this second. How do they all compare?

Samsung Galaxy S II USA Launch Upgrades Rundown [Video]

Samsung Galaxy S II USA Launch Upgrades Rundown [Video]

We have Samsung's Vice President of Consumer & Enterprise Services Gavin Kim to thank for the full rundown of the Samsung Galaxy S II's full new features rundown, all of it presented by him on his very own Galaxy S II device through its MHL (Mobile High-definition Link) port made capable of sending out a mirrored-display through a normal, everyday HDMI cable. You may remember the same functionality from the Infuse 4G, a device which was in many ways the herald of the Samsung Galaxy S II as it's officially announced today. What Kim has for us on stage in NYC at the GSII big reveal event is a look at everything you should expect from the three announced devices today as they compare to the original GSII released a few months ago internationally.

Samsung Galaxy S II for AT&T Hands-On [Video]

Samsung Galaxy S II for AT&T Hands-On [Video]

The second of three declared versions of the internationally popular Samsung dual-core Android device, the Galaxy S II from AT&T, is set to be the only one of three to have the original 4.3-inch display. Now why, you might ask, would they do such a thing? I think the answer may be staring you right in the face with its own fantastically cute face: that's my daughter under the puzzle piece lockscreen of the AT&T Infuse 4G, a device not unlike the Galaxy S II that came out quite a few weeks ago with the same 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display you're now seeing on the WiMAX and T-Mobile versions of the Galaxy S II. What AT&T has done here is to give you a choice of devices, both of them with Super AMOLED Plus displays, but one with a larger display and a smaller processor, the other with a smaller display and a larger processor. Choices!

Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Hands-On [Video]

This Tuesday on a rather sunny post-hurricane NYC afternoon, Samsung announced their newest version of the top-selling Android smartphone, in this iteration called the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch. We've seen just a little bit of this device in the past, it having had a tiny outing earlier today, press shots, and a family outing having taken place last week. What makes this new device unique compared to the original version is a handful of new features, the most obvious of these being the larger 4.52-inch display.
