Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Unveiled (2)

Aside from the Galaxy S II smartphone, Samsung also unveils its new tablet called Galaxy Tab 10.1. As its name implies, the device features a 10.1-inch touchscreen with 1280 x 800 resolution. It is significantly larger than both the iPad's 9.7-inch display and the 7-inch screen of the original Galaxy Tab. Like the Galaxy S II, this tablet computer features a 1GHz dual-core processor, HSPA+ connectivity, and dual cameras in the front (2MP) and the back (8MP). However, this device runs on tablet-friendly Android 3.0 Honeycomb and comes in 16GB and 32GB models. Source: DailyTech Read More

Samsung Galaxy NotePro unveiled (0)

Samsung is beefing up its tablet lineup with its pair of professional tablets, namely the Galaxy NotePro and TabPro. Both tablets can go as huge as 12.2 inches and are designed for professionals on the go. Design-wise, the NotePro and TabPro look similar to the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, respectively, this time with faux-leather back cover and silver trim. Both tablets are just 8mm thick and are relatively lightweight. The difference between the Samsung Galaxy NotePro and the Galaxy TabPro is that the former works with the Samsung S-Pen, while the other does not. Other than that, both devices share the same internal specifications. The premium 12.2 models sport a 2,560 x 1,600 resolution display, which would have the same effect as a 13-inch Retina-equipped MacBook Pro. Both tablets also have 3GB of RAM, Android 4.4, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a 2-megapixel front shooter. On the software side, the major feature on the Samsung Galaxy NotePro and TabPro is the so-called "Magazine UX", a user interface similar to Windows 8 with its various tiles that users can organize. They also support multi-window mode, which allows the display be split into for different windows so you could edit that document and play apps at the same time. They even have a haptic-feedback virtual keyboard. The two tablets come pre-installed with a Remote PC app that allows users to connect with their home or office PC straight from the tablet, as well as Cisco WebEx Meetings software that features web conferencing. They are also packed with $700 worth premium and subscription content from Bloomberg Businessweek, Evernote, Dropbox, Sketchbook Pro, and the New York Times. The Samsung Galaxy NotePro and TabPro are available in WiFi only, with 3G, and with LTE configurations. Both gadgets will on sale first quarter of 2014. Source: Mashable Read More

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 gets a 2014 makeover (0)

It weren't just the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear smartwatch that Samsung introduced during this year's IFA, the company also unveiled an updated version of its Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. The 2014 version has upgraded the screen to 2560 x 1600 resolution, close to iPad's Retina display. The new giant phablet sports almost the same internal specs as the Galaxy Note 3, including the 8-core Octa chip system clocked at 1.9GHz, 3GB of RAM, Android 4.3, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and the faux leather casing at the back. Of course, Samsung also added the S-pen stylus. The device also features Samsung's multi-window mode, S Voice, S Note, and many other propriety software suite. Initial reviews have doubts the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will take off. Romain Dillet of TechCrunch points out that "10-inch Android tablets are not popular because Android captured the lower end of the market." "Developers don't spend time reworking the UI for big screens. It still works on a 7-inch tablet, but it makes you feel like you are holding giant phone with a 10-inch tablet," he continued. Still, this large tablet would make a beautiful media viewer, giving more definition to your mobile movie watching experience, that is if the content's animation would not stutter. The new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will be available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB versions. No word yet on price or availability. Source: TechCrunch Read More

Jelly-Bean-Powered Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Unveiled (0)

Samsung introduces a new addition to its tablet line--the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. This 7-inch tablet runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is equipped with a yet-unspecified dual-core 1.2GHz processor, a ridiculously-low screen resolution of 1024 x 600 and 169ppi, your choice of 8GB or 16GB internal storage memory (both are expandable to 64GB, thanks to microSD cards), full HD video playback, a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.3-megapixel camera at the front. Tech bloggers: Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 "underwhelming" A number of tech journos state how "underwhelming" the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is, compared to the recently-launched Galaxy Note 8. One version has cellular connectivity, but it can only go as far as 3G when it comes to data speed. It does, however, come with a thinner bezel compared to its predecessor--the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. Judging by new tablet's name, it seems like Samsung has no plans of churning out a new version of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. The WiFi version of Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is expected to arrive in May, while the cellular-enabled model will be sold beginning in June. No official retail price yet, but it might come lower than $399 the Note 8 is offering. Source: TechCrunch and Mashable Read More

Apple UK Publishes Cheeky “Apology” to Samsung (0)

In compliance to a recent court ruling in the United Kingdom that Samsung did not copy the iPad, Apple has published a statement informing the public about the ruling on its UK homepage. However, the iPad company remained indignant in the process. Apple's public statement included four paragraphs detailing "similar German lawsuits" that the Court of Appeal in London says are not true. It also included the UK High Court judge's statement in his decision that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is "not as cool" as the iPad. "I'm at a loss that a company such as Apple would do this," says Appeals Judge Robin Jacob. "That is a plain breach of the order." The offending paragraphs in Apple's statement are highlighted in bold below: On 9th July 2012 the High Court of Justice of England and Wales ruled that Samsung Electronic(UK) Limited’s Galaxy Tablet Computer, namely the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Tab 8.9 and Tab 7.7 do notinfringe Apple’s registered design No. 0000181607-0001. A copy of the full judgment of the Highcourt is available on the following link www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Patents/2012/1882.html. In the ruling, the judge made several important points comparing the designs of the Apple and Samsung products: “The extreme simplicity of the Apple design is striking. Overall it has undecorated flat surfaces with a plate of glass on the front all the way out to a very thin rim and a blank back. There is a crisp edge around the rim and a combination of curves, both at the corners and the sides. The design looks like an object the informed user would want to pick up and hold. It is an understated, smooth and simple product. It is a cool design.” “The informed user’s overall impression of each of the Samsung Galaxy Tablets is the following. From the front they belong to the family which includes the Apple design; but the Samsung products are very thin, almost insubstantial members of that family with unusual details on the back. They do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design. They are not as cool.” That Judgment has effect throughout the European Union and was upheld by the Court of Appeal on 18 October 2012. A copy of the Court of Appeal’s judgment is available on the following link www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWCA/Civ/2012/1339.html. There is no injunction in respect of the registered design in force anywhere in Europe. However, in a case tried in Germany regarding the same patent, the court found that Samsung engaged in unfair competition by copying the iPad design. A U.S. jury also found Samsung guilty of infringing on Apple’s design and utility patents, awarding over one billion U.S. dollars in damages to Apple Inc. So while the U.K. court did not find Samsung guilty of infringement, other courts have recognized that in the course of creating its Galaxy tablet, Samsung willfully copied Apple’s far more popular iPad. Because of this, the UK Court of Appeal has ordered Apple to remove the statement within 24 hours and post a modified notice acknowledging the inaccurate comments. Apple requested for 14 days to change the statement, but that was rejected. Apple has released an toned-down apology in its UK homepage over the weekend, containing just two paragraphs. Netizens on Reddit, however, have spotted how Apple's remains defiant with the court order. For one, UK residents typing "apple.com" on their browsers are no longer redirected to the "apple.com/uk" homepage where the apology is published. Also, the homepage contained a Javascript code that would keep the apology hidden from plain sight, unless you scroll down. This means that casual consumers do not get to see the apology outright. Those who do, meanwhile, will have to click a link leading to another page containing Apple's full statement. Source: TechCrunch and Geekosystem Read More

US Appeals Court Overturns Galaxy Nexus Ban; Apple Not Happy (1)

The United States Court of Appeals has overturned a ban on sales of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. This comes after a district judge rejected Samsung's request to lift the pre-trial injuction after Apple sued the South Korean company of patent infringement. In the decision, the appeals court said that the district court of San Jose, California (helmed by Judge Lucy Koh) had "abused its discretion in entering an injunction." Earlier this month, the US sales ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet was also lifted. A representative of Samsung said the company "confirms that the role of patent law is to protect innovation and not to unreasonably stifle competition and restrict consumer choice."

AT&T Unveils Two Windows Phone 8-Based Tablets (4)

AT&T has been unveiling its new products left and right. After announcing its two Nokia Lumias and Samsung Galaxy Camera, the carrier has also announced that it will be offering a pair of Windows 8 tablets, namely the Asus VivoTab RT (pictured, left) and Samsung ATIV Smart PC. AT&T describes the Asus VivoTab as the "first quad-core Windows RT 4G LTE tablet." It is the smaller, lighter, and perhaps the less costly of the two. This tablet features a 10.1-inch Super IPS display, 32GB of storage, and NVIDIA quad-core Tegra 3 chipset. Meanwhile, the Samsung ATIV Smart PC sports an 11.6-inch HD display, 1.5GHz Intel Clorver Trail processor, and 64GB internal storage. No word on whether it has LTE radio, but it does has a keyboard dock for the productivity freaks. AT&T stopped short on providing details on pricing and availability. We will hear more about these two sooner or later, most possibly before the holiday shopping rush. Source: TechCrunch Read More

Apple Wants 8 Samsung Smartphones Banned in United States (1)

After winning its patent infringement case against Samsung in a US court, Apple is seeking a sales ban on eight of Samsung's smartphones in the United States, as well as an extension of a preliminary ban on one of Samsung's tablet computers. The eight Samsung phones Apple wants banned include the Galaxy Prevail, one of the South Korean company's top selling units in the U.S. from mid-2010 to mid-2012; Galaxy S II Epic 4G, ranked the third-best seller; Galaxy S 4G, the fourth-best selling; and the Galaxy S II T-Mobile, the eighth-best. There is also the Galaxy S Showcase, the S II AT&T, the S II Skyrocket, and the Droid Charge. It is worth noting that Samsung's latest flagship devices, including the Galaxy S III, were not included in the case. Apple is also seeking to extend the ban on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, which Samsung wants to be lifted after the jury found the tablet did not infringe the Apple design patent that the court-ordered sales ban was based. However, the jury also found that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 infringed on three of Apple's software patents. The court has scheduled the hearing regarding the ban requests from Apple on September 20th, although the date may change. Source: San Francisco Chronicle Read More

UK Judge Forces Apple to Publish Notice that Samsung Did Not Copy iPad (4)

The Honourable Colin Birss, the same U.K. judge who told Apple that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is "not as cool" as the iPad, orders Apple to publish a notice on its website and in British newspapers telling the public about the ruling that Samsung did not copy designs from the iPad. According to Judge Birss, this should correct the damaging impression that the South Korean company was copying Apple's products. The notice should remain posted on Apple's U.K. website for six months and published in a number of newspapers and magazines. You can say that Apple is being ordered to publish an advertisement of sorts for Samsung and Apple's lawyers were adamant regarding the decision. "No company likes to refer to a rival on its website," said Richard Hacon, one of Apple's legal representatives, to the court. We cannot help but suspect that Apple will likely insert the judge's now-popular quotation in the decision into the notice: that Galaxy tablets "do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design; they are not as cool."

U.S. Judge Rejects Samsung’s Request; Galaxy Nexus Remains Unavailable… Or Is It? (5)

U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California, has rejected last Tuesday Samsung's request to lift a pre-trial injunction that would prohibit sales of Galaxy Nexus smartphone in the country. This comes after Judge Koh granted last week Apple's request to block the sales of Samsung's Android smartphone. The judge also rejected a similar request to lift the ban on selling Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the United States. But Samsung is not giving up just yet, as it has also appealed to a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., which has exclusive jurisdiction over intellectual property disputes. Because of the injunction, Samsung and Google (developer of the phone's Android OS) will have to find a workaround to sell their Galaxy Nexus to eager Americans. Sources say that a software patch will be implemented "imminently" to avoid patent infringements from Apple. Also, the phone is currently listed in Google Play store as "coming soon," just in case the software update would make the Galaxy Nexus clear of any legal issues.
