Samsung Omnia 7 Hands On [Video]

With all the press releases and announcements, it's about time we got some hands on time with the handsets being shown off this morning (or afternoon, for those in Europe). The first handset on deck is Samsung's offering for the region, the Omnia 7. Featuring Microsoft's upcoming Windows Phone 7 mobile Operating System, and touting the same high-end internals as all the other devices set to launch soon enough, the Omnia 7 has one distinct feature: that Super AMOLED display.

Verizon’s dual-touch Samsung Continuum gets second outing

We caught a glimpse of the Samsung Continuum SCH-i400 yesterday, but now the dual-touchscreen Verizon Android phone has leaked more comprehensively.  Android Central managed to snag some hands-on time with the Verizon Continuum, finding its main touchscreen to be considerably smaller than that of the Verizon Fascinate and its Ticker mini-touchscreen to work surprisingly well.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Heading to Verizon

Samsung Galaxy Tab Heading to Verizon

The news about Verizon getting a tablet probably wasn't a surprise to most people. Considering the second largest wireless carrier in the United States is toting Apple's iPad, there's no shock that Verizon would want to jump on the competition train. Also not surprising: Android's involved. We know that Motorola's planning a 10-inch model of their own, but this new internal screenshot is a bit surprising to the rest of us.

LCD Androids best AMOLED in browser battery testing

LCD Androids best AMOLED in browser battery testing

AMOLED was billed as the double-punch to traditional LCD panels on smartphones: better image quality and lower power consumption, adding up to a handset that lasted longer and was nicer to use.  According to Laptop's testing, however, the reality isn't quite so clear cut.  They put eight Android smartphones - including the DROID X, Epic 4G and EVO 4G - through their paces running a custom battery testing app, and found that Motorola's LCD panels actually came to the top of the pile.

AT&T Samsung Cetus i917 Windows Phone 7 leaks

AT&T Samsung Cetus i917 Windows Phone 7 leaks

Windows Phone 7 must be close, because the leaks keep on coming.  Another Samsung smartphone has poked its head into the wild, believed to be the Samsung Cetus i917 headed to AT&T's clammy clutches.  Packing the usual WP7 hardware into a glossy black casing that's a little more discrete than HTC's two-tone Schubert/Mozart, we're guessing that means the previously spotted prototype was indeed just a model used for internal testing.

Sprint Epic 4G Review

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. Some - like the Nexus One - get Android updates sooner, while others - like the DROID X - have bigger screens and higher-resolution cameras. Hardware keyboards may be more rare, but the Epic 4G isn't alone in that segment either. 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.

Samsung Epic 4G for Sprint Available August 31st for $249.99, Reservations Beginning August 13th

Sure enough, August 11th turned out to be something worthwhile. Thanks to Samsung, we can now safely say that we know when the Epic 4G, Sprint's second 4G-equipped device, will be hitting the airwaves this year. 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.
