Samsung has never been afraid to push the boundaries in the mobile industry, particularly when it comes to display size, and with the Galaxy Note 3 set to pack a panel in excess of 5.5 inches, a leaked render of the alleged Galaxy Note 12.2 - which was originally thought of as a 12-inch tablet PC - has just been spotted in the wild. With numerous vendors said to be preparing larger tablets as we get to what can be very much described as the "hardware end" of the tech calendar, we expect the Korean company to be in amongst the announcements, and although the Galaxy Note 12.2 is still very much at the rumor stage, the shots present a very elegant, naturally large device.
With the Galaxy S4 having been comfortably established in the market for a good while now, most recent press pertaining Samsung's smartphone division has encircled the release of the highly-anticipated Galaxy Note 3. Reports today suggest the device could be unveiled in just a month's time, and to up the ante just a little further, it also appears we may finally see evidence of Samsung's elusive smart watch effort, or the Galaxy Smart Watch as the tech world loves to call it.
Despite all the negative comments about its neither-a-phone-nor-tablet display size, the Galaxy Note is now among Samsung’s more successful products. According to official figures released in June, the company sold a cool 7 million units of the device seven months since its launch. Samsung later announced the technically improved Galaxy S III-based Galaxy Note II. Now, while the next Galaxy Note announcement is months away, the folks over at Concept Phones have come up with an interesting mockup called the Galaxy Note X. Check it out after the jump.
Samsung's UK arm is offering a free Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 to anyone who trades in one of a selection of smartphones, and upgrades to a Galaxy S III or Galaxy Note in the process. Free tablets? You betcha!
A new release of a mobile operating system is always met with a frenzy, and as well as giving the new firmware the once over, consumers are always anxious to learn whether their device will be getting an update, and when.
It still seems like madness that in some cases, brand new Android powered smartphones and tablets don't get shipped with Google's latest version of the Android operating system installed upon them. If I was rushing to the store to purchase myself some of the latest hardware, I would expect it to ship with the latest and greatest software available in the market.
Despite all the criticism regarding its one-size-fits-none form factor, Samsung has sold over 5 million units of the phone-plus-tablet Galaxy Note. Almost everything about the device has controversy surrounding it, whether it’s the huge 5.3” 720p Super AMOLED HD display or the inclusion of a capacitive stylus; it’s really a love it or hate it kind of thing.
This post could easily just be an embedded YouTube video alongside just one word - "WOW" - and that would probably suffice. That said, we like to offer a little more insight than that here at Redmond Pie so here goes.
Samsung chose the biggest advertising day of the year in the United States to debut their Apple mocking, Samsung Galaxy Note commercial which aired for the first time during Super Bowl XLVI. The commercial, which featured a number of blatant attacks toward Apple, featured possibly an ageing British rock band as well as quite possibly the biggest mobile phone I have ever seen, which even comes with a stylus. Yes, 2012 and Samsung are releasing top of the range smartphones with a pen.
What do you get if you cross a British rock band, a stylus, a Hollywood movie director, a Korean electronics company and a mobile device big enough to sink an ocean cruise liner? Yes, that's right, you get a truly cringe worthy Samsung Super Bowl commercial.
