    Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 With TouchWiz Caught On Video (With Bonus Keyboard Dock)

    Samsung’s medium-size Galaxy Tab 8.9 is my favorite of the upcoming Android tablets, just based on its form factor and pixel density.

    Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi To Cumber Shelves On April 4th?

    These days, if you want a Galaxy Tab (the little one that isn’t selling well, not the big one that’s not for sale), you need to go to your local cellular provider and get one on contract. Why can’t you just get one with wi-fi? I don’t know. But I guess Samsung started asking that question too, and decided hey, why not sell a wi-fi version at Best Buy? Read More

    More Hands-On Pictures With The Galaxy Tab 10.1


    We’re here at Mobile World Congress, and the brand new Galaxy S 10.1 was one of our first stops. My first impression? I like it. The larger size screen combines nicely with the different aspect ratio to make something that’s a nice medium-large size, and the grippy, sculpted back cover is a joy to hold. Of the several tablets I handled today (more hands-on posts on the way), I… Read More

    Samsung: Galaxy Tab Return Rate 2%, Not 14-17% As Reported

    Samsung just can’t get ahead. First there was the little miscommunication concerning Galaxy Tab sales numbers which related to distributors and not consumers.

    Just Kidding! Samsung Galaxy Tab Sales Are “Quite Small”

    I had a premonition about this when the previous announcements of Galaxy Tab sales seemed unclear over whether the one million and two million figures were units sold to consumers, or units shipped to distributors.

    That's Two Million Galaxy Tabs Served


    Two million! Good for Samsung!

The sales of the iPad dwarf this, of course (nearly 8 million in the same period), but hey, like they say, first is worst, second is best, and third is… HP, I… Read More
