A good chunk of Samsung’s recent smartphone releases seemed intent on stretching people’s hands beyond their limits, but it seems like the company may be ready to buck that trend very soon.
According to a recently released press invitation, Samsung will be pulling back the curtains on a smaller-than-usual smartphone at its Mobile Store in Frankfurt on October 11. → Read More
Last week we told you that T-mobile had announced their 4G variant of the near-ubiquitous Galaxy S. Well, for anyone that’s itching for this high-speed variant, I’m happy to tell you that today, T-mobile’s info page for the handset has gone live. There isn’t any new info given, but there is an option to sign up for notifications about the device. For those that can’t… → Read More
Phone names, like band names, are getting weirder and weirder. To wit: the Galaxy Ace, an already goofy name, will be called the Galaxy Cooper in India, suggesting a PR campaign featuring some sort of intergalactic softshoe number. Some specs after the jump. → Read More
Like we needed any more evidence that the Galaxy S is slowly taking over the world, but Samsung recently announced that they have sold 2 million Galaxy S units since its June launch in their home country of Korea.
They also announced that, at 9.3 million worldwide sales since launch, Samsung are on track to reach 10 million sales by the year’s end — giving the Galaxy S the (somewhat dubious… → Read More
With the Samsung Epic 4G launching very soon, here’s an interesting alternative view of the device. If you dig around enough on the FCC website, you’ll be able to find nude pictures of almost every phone. Sometimes they are barely legal shots, like this Samsung Epic 4G. → Read More
Good news for Samsung; their new Galaxy phone has hit 1 million sold after just 45 days of being on the market. That’s a pretty impressive number for a phone that doesn’t come from Apple. Electronista reports that Samsung considers the phone to an instant success, and expects the Galaxy to continue to sell quickly. The 1 million number was a combined total between AT&T and… → Read More
Short version: A powerful and attractive handset held back by a few interface quirks and matters of taste. The Galaxy S series still is probably the best large (as opposed to medium, or extra-large) Android handset on the market as of this review. → Read More
I can’t say much about the Galaxy S Captivate that hasn’t been said, other than to inform you that this ultra-slim Android phone is amazingly small, light, and very exciting. Styled like the EVO 4G but running on AT&T, the phone features 16GB internal storage and a 1GHz processor. The model I saw was production-ready and ran Android 2.2. → Read More
The title of “hottest Android handset right now” has been passed around a fair bit of late, from the Nexus One, to the Desire, to the Incredible, to the Evo, to the Galaxy S, and beyond. The last 6-12 months has been like a game of digital hot potato.
Next in line for this starchy title? The Galaxy S Pro. → Read More
Remember a few months back, we used our super-Internet-sleuthing abilities to break the news that AT&T would eventually be getting a Android handset that was oh-so-similar to the just announced Samsung Galaxy S? Say hello to the phone in question, now known as the Samsung Captivate. → Read More
So maybe Samsung thought it was a bit ambitious to launch in 110 countries simultaneously, or maybe they never intended to. Either way, Samsung today announced that their flagship Android device, the Galaxy S, will be available in Europe very soon, while the US will get it “later this year”. → Read More
In the grand world of electronics, it’s pretty much customary to launch in one country, wait a few days, launch in another, and so on. At most, companies launch their new toys in two or three countries at a time – it’s just really the only sane way to do it, you know? Remind me not to ever call Samsung sane. → Read More
Waaay back in April, a handset with strikingly similar specs to the beastly Samsung Galaxy S showed up in the Bluetooth certification database. The big difference here, though, was the model number: SGH-i897. Through good ol’ fashion science (and by that, I mean looking at the model number), we deduced that this guy was headed for AT&T — and we were right. → Read More
Well, I’m happy that you’re so sure of yourself, but I’m even happier that the Galaxy S ticks all of your boxes AND will be released sometime in June!
But calm down a sec, mmmkay? There is something more I need to tell you. First of all, the June release is for Asia only… → Read More
Sometime yesterday afternoon, some new information started floating around the Kingdom of Ol’ Rumorton. “The Samsung Galaxy S… another version is coming,” whispered the trees of Rumorton, “and it’s called the Galaxy S Pro! And it has a physical keyboard!” The rumors were in a bit too shaky of a state yesterday for us to cover them; we didn’t know… → Read More
