Samsung Galaxy Tab Event Wrap-Up and Hands-On [Video]

We had known about Samsung's event for a little while now, and while there was some pretty obvious speculation about the purpose of that event, it wasn't until a leaked internal Verizon document that we got any kind of "confirmation" as to what we'd be seeing tonight.

AT&T Captivate, T-Mobile Vibrant & Galaxy S simple unlock unearthed

Unlocking a cellphone can be a headache, so we're pleased to see Samsung has done its users a service with the Galaxy S - and the US versions, the AT&T Captivate and T-Mobile Vibrant, based on the phone - by including the unlock codes in a file on the smartphone itself.  Unfortunately they've not made them easy to access, and so the team over at xda-developers has stepped in with a simple tool that takes a locked Galaxy S family handset and spits out an unlocked version.

Sprint Epic 4G Review

Sprint 4G smartphones may be thin on the ground, but that doesn't mean the Samsung Epic 4G gets a free pass into our favors; there's plenty of strong competition among the smartphone ecosystem, even if you're limiting your choices to devices running the Android OS.

Still, with a Super AMOLED display, high-speed connectivity and all Samsung's multimedia bells & whistles, the Epic 4G certainly stands a good chance of being Sprint's best smartphone. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

The Epic 4G is the most distinct variation of the Samsung Galaxy S devices launching here in the States: featuring a 4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display, a 1GHz Hummingbird processor under the hood, a full physical QWERTY keyboard on a landscape slider, and Samsung's proprietary TouchWiz 3.0 User Interface overlaying Android 2.1, the Epic 4G also sits high on the hill thanks to its ability to connect to Sprint's 4G WiMAX network.
