Samsung Galaxy Metrix 4G brings low-spec to LTE

The device you're about to have a rundown of is called the Samsung Galaxy Metrix 4G, and if you're destined to work with US Cellular, this might be your handset of choice. While it might seem strange that the manufacturer would release another smartphone for $70 less than its hero device, the Samsung Galaxy S III, on the same carrier that already carries that hero, it has happened - here's the proof! This device works with a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and a 1GHz single-core processor.

Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 for the USA brings the $400 tablet to Samsung

Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 for the USA brings the $400 tablet to Samsung

It's time for Samsung to get a taste of the $399.99 tablet pricetag, especially now that the Apple iPad 2 is selling for that same price and still being produced to replenish stock on the regular. What with the tablet wars still very much going in Apple's favor, Samsung's strategy to create an Android slate in every conceivable shape and size seems to be sticking. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 joins the official USA release announcement team with the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 we've completed a review of today - is this your new everyday all day tablet?

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE Review

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE Review

The size range of Android-based devices Samsung has made over the past year is far and away the largest any manufacturer has yet achieved, and if you're unable to find the screen size you desire at the moment, you likely have only to wait another week or month and poof! It will appear. That said, it appears that the Galaxy Tab 7.7 has appeared here in the USA in an LTE edition made specifically for Verizon, and having taken a glance at every single other display size in the lineup I can comfortably say the following: this is one of the best.

Galaxy S II Android 4.0 ICS official early update leaked, TouchWiz intact

Galaxy S II Android 4.0 ICS official early update leaked, TouchWiz intact

What you're about to see is a video of a person using the international edition of the Samsung Galaxy S II with what SamMobile blog says is the first build of Ice Cream Sandwich made for the device by Samsung - what you'll notice here is not just that the device has the newest version of Android on it, but that Samsung's own custom user interface has been fully integrated. When we first saw the TouchWiz that's closest to what you're about to see, it was way back at the start of 2011 at Mobile World Congress (and the famous CTIA Philip Berne event) with the launch of the original Galaxy S II (aka the one you see here), then again in a slightly updated version here in the USA. What this represents is Samsung's continued reliance on said user interface to differentiate their products from the competition.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 AT&T LTE Hands-on and Unboxing

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 AT&T LTE Hands-on and Unboxing

This week we get our first glimpse of what it means to hold the next addition to the Galaxy Tab family in our hands, the slightly larger than mid-sized Galaxy Tab 8.9 for AT&T's LTE network. What we'll be doing in the post you're looking at here is giving it a relatively brief hands-on look as well as a few photos of how it looks in and out of the box. What you'll find is that this certainly has little in the way of differences from the rest of the Galaxy Tab line (starting with the 10.1, that is), save for its size which may indeed be the perfect one if you're a Goldilocks sort of person. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 not nearly as obtuse as the original Galaxy Tab, it's not as large as the 10.1, and it's got just a slight bit more screen space than the 7.7. Samsung appears to be covering all the bases: is this home plate?

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 Review

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 Review

With the absolute barrage of Samsung Android devices having been released this summer, fall, and on into the winter, you'd think that they'd just skip sending out the Galaxy Player 5.0 altogether - it being a device essentially released internationally several months ago. Instead they're releasing it relatively silently in a way that wont defeat the iPod as many have said it would be aiming to do, but will fill the void where Samsung simply hasn't had a wi-fi only handheld media player before. Will it sell for what it is, or will it fall at the hands of its own much more impressive smartphone lineup?
