  • Hands on with the Samsung Progressive HD camcorder, SC-HMX10C

    [photopress:IMGP4221.JPG,full,center] Just in time for CES, I received a Samsung HD camcorder to record all of our shenanigans for your viewing pleasure in HD (720p). I dig the 2.7-inch touchscreen LCD and swiveling handle for some reason. We’ll see what this biotch can do in a few days. Read More

  • Samsung 1TB drive is more for security situations than BitTorrent storage

    Samsung 1TB drive is more for security situations than BitTorrent storage

    Unless you’re running a small security operation a la Tony Montana, you can probably safely steer clear of this new 1TB enterprise-level hard drive. What makes this noteworthy is that it’s the first 3.5-inch drive to have 1TB spread over only three platters, or 334GB per platter. (Compare that tolast year’s Hitachi’s 7K1000, which uses five platters, or 200GB per platter.)… Read More

  • Samsung takes OLED to 31 Inches

    Samsung takes OLED to 31 Inches

    We know that the future of flat-panel televisions and monitors is in OLED, and that future is getting closer daily, it seems. Samsung will be showing off at CES next month the largest OLED screen to date, weighing in at 31 inches. While it’s still not big enough for my living room (my 37″ Olevia is tops), it’s progress. OLED is lighter than LCD or plasma, uses less power, and is… Read More

  • T-Mobile keeps on giving

    No disrespect to the original, but BHIC does a damn good job here. Give it a minute before you hit the jump for the one and only. Looking to switch carriers? T-mobile near the top of the list? Well, the deal just got sweeter because they’re waiving the $35 activation fee for n00bs until the end of the year. So scoot on over to your local store or check out the site. The Curve, Sidekick LX… Read More

  • Samsung's got a 31-inch OLED display for you

    Samsung's got a 31-inch OLED display for you

    The arms race has begun. Sony unveiled a 27-inch prototype last month, and Samsung decided it had better get in on the game. They say the screen they’ve created is 4.3mm thick, which is kind of ridiculous, and uses up half the juice as an LCD screen the same size. They’ll be displaying it at CES, and you can bet your sweet hiney we’ll be getting a few snaps of that thing. Samsung… Read More

  • Mysto from Helio drops today, sort of

    Mysto from Helio drops today, sort of

    Not to toot our own horn or anything, but we’re going to have to on this particular occasion. The Mysto from Helio, which is keeping up with surf-related theme (I obviously dig that. Mysto is a ultra secret spot that no one else knows about and some may consider a myth), was outed by us a few weeks ago and we just caught wind that it’s hitting the market today. It’s not being… Read More

  • Samsung drops a 17-inch lappy for under $1,200

    Samsung drops a 17-inch lappy for under $1,200

    Looks nice. And it’s a pretty good deal – the screen is 1440×900 and an actual GeForce 8600GT is an option – no onboard graphics for this thing. It has a dual-layer capable burner, HDMI out, and a built in webcam. RAM’s not mentioned so I’m guessing a gig, and the hard drive isn’t either — I’d guess 160GB or so. But maybe you can upgrade to… Read More

  • Samsung u940 passes through FCC

    Samsung u940 passes through FCC

    Look who showed up on the FCC. If it isn’t the CDMA version of the F700, the u940. You remember this little guy, right? We were the first to tell you it was coming and now it’s one step closer to being realized. Could there be an official announcement at CES? Maybe. FCC Read More

  • Smartphones Now: Not-so-smartphones

    Smartphones Now: Not-so-smartphones

    Can anyone truly define what a smartphone is? It’s been something I’ve been asking everyone at CG and no one seems to know exactly what it is. Just about every phone on the market can be considered a smartphone if you believe it to be something that does anything other than making calls, but that’s obviously not it. It’s essentially any device that gives you the impression… Read More

  • Toshiba joins 32-nanometer chip development group

    Toshiba joins 32-nanometer chip development group

    An industry group comprised of IBM, AMD, Samsung, and a few various semiconductor companies has just initiated Toshiba into their club, which has been formed to "work through 2010 to design, develop and produce chips using tiny circuitry." Toshiba had to drink a gallon of beer in under a minute and then do the elephant walk with all the other companies. Other secret initiation rituals… Read More

 
  • Samsung T819 3G T-Mobile phone a little closer to reality

    Samsung T819 3G T-Mobile phone a little closer to reality

    The Samsung t819, which we first mentioned a couple days ago as an FCC leak, has leaked a bit more, this time giving us full stats from T-Mobile. While no exact release date is given, we have the vague “January” time frame now, which is in line with what we’ve been hearing. It’s tight mid-range package, with a passable 1.3-Megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, full IM client… Read More

  • Yet another 3G phone surfaces for 3g-less T-Mobile

    Yet another 3G phone surfaces for 3g-less T-Mobile

    Now this is just getting silly. Samsung has a new phone very similar to the Blast that just cleared the FCC. The dual-band GSM phone purportedly also features dual-band WCDMA, or, as we call it, 3G connectivity. By itself, that’s nothing, but in the leaked FCC cert pics, you’ll notice T-Mobile’s myFaves logo on the back. This would be the third 3G phone offered by T-Mobile in the… Read More

  • Sharp sues Samsung over alleged LCD infringement

    Sharp sues Samsung over alleged LCD infringement

    I guess it’s kind of a normal thing right now for tech companies in the far east to sue each other regularly over technicalities in order to get a leg up competition-wise. So, feeling the fever, Sharp decided to get in on the frenzy and throw down against LCD TV rival Samsung. The suits concern “brightness, response speeds and viewing angles of LCD panels,” apparently, which… Read More

  • Samsung's AMOLED phone has the longest acronym

    Samsung's AMOLED phone has the longest acronym

    Samsung has created another good-looking phone, and this time it even has a few chin-stroke-worthy features. Sure, everyone loves LEDs, and OLEDs I’m told are the future. So what about AMOLEDs? Surely more letters = more quality. The AM stands for Active Matrix, and Samsung and LG have used it in a few very thin TVs. To you, the consumer, this means low power consumption, bright sharp… Read More

  • Samsung dual player still dropping this month, even cheaper

    Samsung dual player still dropping this month, even cheaper

    There’s a lot of confusion going around about Samsung’s dual player, BD-UP5000, and when it may actually hit retailers. Amazon says it won’t be here till next month, but Samsung is on record saying the player is shipping now and that we’ll see it before the end of the year. Well, you better get a move on, Samsung. The gift giving day is fast approaching and people… Read More

  • Sprint will have the Samsung Ace come Q1 '08

    Sprint will have the Samsung Ace come Q1 '08

    Now here’s a dapper-looking smartphone. Looks about as thin as a triscuit, and it’s got a full QWERTY keyboard and a whole lot of other buttons as well. It’s not the most advanced of phones – it’s not 3G, it’s got no real browser, and there’s no touchscreen – but it is a sexy little basic smartphone despite running Windows Mobile 6. If you need push… Read More

  • Samsung announces GDDR5 RAM; what happened to 4?

    Samsung announces GDDR5 RAM; what happened to 4?

    I just got a great new motherboard and one of its selling points was support for DDR3 RAM. Tom’s Hardware recently posted a shootout showing that DDR3 mobos and RAM were merely a promising, emerging technology. So why is Samsung busting out this alien technology when people are still deciding whether to switch from DDR2? Because this RAM will be integrated with graphics cards (hence the… Read More

    MetroPCS gets slider from Samsung

    Samsung has announced the r410. The latest slider from Samsung has a QWERTY keyboard, stereo Bluetooth, speakerphone (wow!), a built-in VGA camera with night shot, advanced voice recognition, IM and e-mail. Battery life is a paltry 2.5 hours, though. But it comes in red and black. Read More
