There’s another Samsung Galaxy Tab out there in the wild, this one coming with a physical design not unlike the Galaxy S5. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 has been leaked with a backside pattern the same as the Galaxy S5, bringing on specifications very, very similar to those of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014.
Samsung has introduced an exclusive collection of crystal-studded accessories from Swarovski for its Galaxy S5 handset and the Gear Fit. For the smartphone owners, the collaboration brings a couple new shiny covers to the collection, while Gear Fit owners can choose from several different charms.
Tablet satisfaction has dropped overall, with low-cost - and underwhelming - slates souring the market despite more predictable performance from the better known brands like Apple and Samsung, new research suggests. J.D. Power's latest tablet ownership study found that, overall, satisfaction has dropped to 835 out of 1,000 in 2014, down 18 points from a year ago. That may well be a side-effect of price playing a greater role than before.
Samsung will fight the $120m damages a US court ruled it must pay Apple, the South Korean firm has insisted, accusing its rival of omitting "real world evidence" that would have proved Samsung's innocence. The San Jose court found in Apple's favor late last week, with a jury deeming Samsung guilty of patent infringement with its Galaxy series of phones among other products, though awarded the iPhone maker a fraction of the cash it was demanding.
Apple's damages pay-out from Samsung has been shuffled but not materially changed, with the jury in the patent trial granting extra cash for one infringement but notching back the sum on another to compensate. Apple was awarded $119m by the San Jose court on Friday last week, but asked by Justice Lucy Koh to re-examine the final awards after not granting damages for one case of Samsung's infringement.
