[Rumor] Samsung to announce Galaxy S 2 devices at MWC?

Despite the “rumor” classification, it’s a pretty safe bet to assume that Samsung will in fact be releasing the next iteration of it’s exceedingly popular Galaxy S line of smart phones at this year’s Mobile World Congress. The upgrade, according to the KoreaHerald, is expected to include the new SuperAMOLED Plus display, Google Android 2.3, and a dual-core SoC to top it all off . No word on whether this will be a dual-core version of Samsung’s sexy Hummingbird platform, or something altogether new. Hit the jump for some quotes directly from Shin Jong-kyun, alpha dog in the Samsung mobile division.

A Month With AT&T’s Samsung Captivate

Recently, I was given an opportunity to spend a good deal of time with AT&T’s flagship Android phone, the Samsung Captivate.  The Captivate is (Quite obviously) a member of the Galaxy S family, whose 4″ SuperAMOLED screens and 1GHz Hummingbird processors can be found on most of the worlds major carriers (See T-Mobile Vibrant, .Samsung Fascinate, Sprint Epic 4G, etc).  How does the Captivate hold up to my (often hyper)criticism?  Can I successfully remove the battery door without a heart attack?  Find out after the break!

The Galaxy Tab to run between $200 and $400?

According to the Wall Street Journal, Samsung executive Hankil Yoon, informed them that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be running for a very reasonable $200-$400 price range. This is all dependent on subsidies of course. If the price can be reduced to $200 on a 2 year contract and $499 without, then Samsung has a winner. It may seem hard to compete with the iPad at a similar price off contract, however the Samsung Galaxy Tab is better in every way. Dual cameras, Flash 10.1, almost half the weight, smaller more portable size, but still packing a big enough screen to enjoy games, E-Reading, and web browsing. This thing is a winner so far in our books, though we do need to get our hands on one to make sure we like this thing in real life as much as we do from afar. Would you sign a 2 year contract for a $200 Galaxy Tab or would you prefer to pay full price? Read more of this post

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab revealed, on paper it bests the iPad in almost every way

Today is the launch of, well lets be honest, the iPad’s first real competitor. The Samsung Galaxy Tab was unveiled today in Berlin Germany and there is a lot to like about this device. In fact, there is so much to like about the device I went with the semi-controversial title stating that the Galaxy Tab is in fact better than the iPad. Well that is on paper at least. So what does this thing come with? Read on after the break for the full spec list… Read more of this post

Galaxy S unlock is hidden on the phone, Vibrant works on AT&T 3G bands

XDA has found quite the surprise inside the Galaxy S phones here in the United States. Apparently their unlock codes were right there the whole time. Without even having to root your phone, you can enter the Galaxy S unlock codes directly on your phone and use them on other carriers. Here is one of the exciting kickers about this whole thing. The Samsung Vibrant actually works on AT&T’s 3G network. Engadget took the Vibrant for a test spin and were able to get 2MB/s download speeds on AT&T with an AT&T SIM inside the T-Mobile Vibrant. However, all good news comes a healthy dose of bad news as well. The Samsung Captivate on AT&T, though it is possible to unlock and use it on T-Mobile, does not have the bands to support T-Mobile’s 3G. So if you end up making that switch, you will be stuck with T-Mobile’s Edge network. So if you haven’t already, head over to XDA and read through their step by step guide on doing so.
