Samsung’s Galaxy S has a “gyroscope” like the iPhone 4

So we all thought it was revolutionary that the iPhone 4 came with a shiny new gyroscope? Well it is, but they aren’t the only ones who thought of it. Normally you see Apple lead the way and other companies follow shortly after. It briefly seemed like this was going to be the case until the fact that the Galaxy S has a gyroscope just like the iPhone 4 was realized. Read more of this post

Samsung Vibrant for T-Mobile is officially official, details spilled

The Vibrant is one of the bigger deals in all of this Samsung Galaxy S madness. It doesn’t necessarily have the best specs if you like 4G and a front facing camera which you can find on the Sprint Epic. However, it is the first “Super Phone” to land on T-Mobile’s shelves. Yes shelves specifically. The Nexus One was an internet only device for those in the know. The Vibrant will be marketed by T-Mobile and Samsung and will be there in the store for you to try. In-fact, at least on paper, the Samsung Vibrant out does the Nexus. Better screen, bigger screen, faster processor with a better GPU, and the option of using any mobile plan. The Vibrant is an awesome phone and will be a delight to have on T-Mobile. Now on to those specs. Which I am not going to post here because this is another Samsung Galaxy S. You can check out those specs here. You can pick up this phone for $199 on July 21st. Check out the full press release after the break…

Samsung expects to double its market share with the Galaxy S

Samsung is serious about smartphones. The Galaxy S is on its way to the United States very soon. Samsung is also said to be bringing it to 109 other countries. We have touched on this before, but Samsung felt compelled to reveal that they expect this to be a huge year for them because of Android and the Galaxy S. According to BusinessWeek, Samsung plans to grow to more than 10% of the global smartphone market by the end of 2010 due to the Galaxy S. So what do we do? We sit back and watch as Samsung does what it can to make its name known in the modern smartphone market. I am not going to lie, I am truly looking forward to being able to say, “I told you so!”.

Samsung’s Galaxy S may be the biggest Android phone ever, heres why

Samsung has kind of been all over the place when it comes to smartphones. They have phones with Windows Mobile, Android, Bada, and soon Windows Phone 7. Until now it has been unclear as to which platform is most important to them and how they are even going about their mobile strategy. From a third-party perspective, one perspective that observes the launch and marketing of phones each time there is a new one, from someone who has been pleased with Apple’s marketing and displeased with Palm’s, and can clearly see the results because of it, I feel I am entitled to a detailed opinion on the matter. Let’s take a brief look at Samsung’s recent past, what they have tried, and where they are headed. Read more of this post
