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 Galaxy S lands on AT&T, renamed to Samsung Captivate

We all know the specs of the Samsung Galaxy S by now. What we have been waiting for is a release date and some carrier info. We recently saw a FCC filing that shows the Samsung Galaxy S with T-Mobile 3G bands. Even after seeing that recent FCC filing, the Samsung Galaxy S may land on AT&T first. AT&T announced the re-branded Galaxy S as the Samsung Captivate this morning. They offer a full press release on the device and say it will arrive in the coming months. Curious that it won’t be in the coming weeks. We have heard an end of July time frame for the Galaxy S so there is still a chance that it might land on another U.S. carrier first. Either way it is looking like the Galaxy S might just be landing on that 110 countries around the world like we heard before. You might just want to hold off on that iPhone 4 purchase, unless of course AT&T strips out the phones basic functionality. Check out the press release after the break… Read more of this post

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

A shortage in AMOLED screens causing delayed Android shipments, Apple to change their minds

AMOLED seems to be the way of the future for smart phones. They are more expensive to produce and purchase, but they produce a richer quality in colors, higher contrast ratio, and less battery consumption. AMOLED screens can be found on the Nexus One, the Droid Incredible, the HTC Desire, and now on the Galaxy S in the form of Super AMOLED. The relatively new technology for mobile devices seems to come at a price for manufacturers. That price being shortages.

Dell gives us four new handsets: Lightning, Thunder, Flash and Smoke

In what was an overflow of news yesterday, Engadget reported on four new leaked devices by Dell. The four handsets appear to be Dell’s commitment to a serious push into the U.S. mobile market in a dramatic fashion. Not only are the phone designs unique but so are some of the things under the hood of each device.

  • Lighting – running Windows Mobile 7, a portrait slider form factor, 1GHz QSD8250 Snapdragon processor, WVGA 4.1-inch OLED display, AT&T and T-Mobile 3G, five megapixel autofocus camera, 1GB of flash with 512MB RAM plus 8GB of storage on a MicroSD card (non-user-replaceable, we’re assuming), GPS, accelerometer, compass, FM radio, and full Flash support including video playback.
  • Thunder – An Android 2.1, 4.1-inch WVGA OLED screen, a heavily custom Dell “Stage” UI on top, ties into Facebook and Twitter for social networking, and taps Swype for a touchscreen keyboard replacement, Snapdragon (not sure on spec but presumed same as Lighting), 8 megapixel camera, running a Hulu app and claims that it contains Flash 10.1 for watching web videos.
  • Flash – 3.5-inch WVGA LCD, 850 / 1900 / 2100MHz HSPA topping out at 14.4Mbps down and 5.6Mbps “or better” on the upstream, a 5 megapixel autofocus cam with image stabilization and smile / blink detection, 512MB of RAM and ROM with microSD expansion up to 64GB (Dell’s clearly assuming there’ll be 64GB microSD cards by next year), WiFi, TV-out, 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 3.0, and a Qualcomm MSM7230 core humming along at 800MHz.
  • Smoke – running Android Froyo atop a 2.8-inch QVGA screen, portrait QWERTY keyboards, Qualcomm’s next-gen MSM7230 processor at 800MHz, a 5 megapixel autofocus cam, 14.4Mbps HSPA, microSD expansion to 32GB, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, and dual-mic noise canceling tech in a 12mm package.

If any of these handsets sound like something you may be interested in, I would suggest to head on over to Engadget and read the full round-up specifications sheets and find out more information on the Looking Glass, a 7 inch tablet, The Streak, Aero and Dell’s complete Mobile Outlook for the future.
