    The Apple vs. Samsung trial has officially begun, and if you were tired of all the drama in the previous one, this one is actually interesting and unique on its own. Previously we saw how Apple won the previous patent trial based mostly on software patent infringement, and this time, the lawsuit digs deeper into how Samsung has benefited in copying Apple's smartphone development. Today the trial has begun with Apple's opening statement, where the company specifically asks for over $2 Billion in damages over Samsung's infringement in five different patents. By contrast, even though Samsung ...

    One of the biggest mysteries hanging over hanging over Google's Nexus series of Androids has concerned the fate of the 10-inch option. By now, Google's made it clear that we get a new Nexus smartphone every year, and the way the first two generations of the Nexus 7 look, that's a pattern we could see Google mirror with these smaller tablets. But what about bigger ones? The Nexus 10 launched all the way back in 2012, and after it passed that one-year mark, we really started looking in earnest for a replacement. While we still don't have any firm answer, some recent developments over on the ...

    For the past couple months, following Samsung's introduction of its new TabPRO and NotePRO tablets at CES 2014, we've been hearing about another family of models that would soon join them, presumably as Tab 4 non-pro devices. There have been plenty of leaks to help us along the way, including an early rundown on specs for a 7.0, 8.0, and 10.1-inch Tab 4, and later leaks of a few press renders for this gang. We even briefly saw the tablets mentioned by Samsung itself, on a page for the Gear Fit – and that sighting revealed Samsung to be taking a cue from those TabPROs and removing a space ...

    With the Apple vs Samsung trial gaining more and more heat, the next round of court visits is just a couple of days away. We've been hearing of Apple's master plan in billing Samsung $40 for every device shipped, based on all the patent infringement that has been proven, and we know that what Cupertino wants is for Samsung to no longer make money off-of its mobile division. Whether that happens or not is yet to be seen, but we've just learned what Samsung is planning next as a way to fight back. Today we've learned that Samsung is looking for Google's help, and particularly that of Andy ...

    Overnight, we got a little update about what to expect so far as the next wave of Windows Phone hardware launches goes, mentioning that we may hope to see retail availability for a number of new models begin on April 23. While those include some Nokia Lumia phones that we've been waiting to see launch for the better part of forever, they also mentioned a Samsung phone that's been on our radar since late last year, the rumored ATIV SE. We've been talking about it all along as Samsung's 1080p WP8 effort, but what more might we hope to expect from the phone? As we get into the home stretch ...

    There were a lot of rumors and leaks of Windows Phone 8.1, and its features, and on March 26 we've heard that Microsoft has allegedly finalized core development for the upcoming refresh. According to some recent reports, March 26 was also the day on which Microsoft's OEM partners have gotten their hands on Windows Phone 8.1. What does all this mean? First of all, phone makers can now develop and test firmwares; it also means that Windows Phone 8.1 devices should be just around the corner. WPCentral claims to have information on a certain April 23 date on which the first phones will become ...

    Mid-last-week we've seen the initial renders of the Tab 4 7.0 get leaked courtesy of @evleaks and today we're being treated to official press images of another upcoming South Korean slate, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1. There's no doubt that both of these tablets will be part of the same family of products, and they're expected to be less powerful/more affordable devices compared to the CES TabPRO and NotePRO line-up. As the name implies, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 will have a ten-inch screen, and so far it is expected to have a resolution of 1280 x 800. While nothing is official for ...

    After seeing HTC's latest and greatest being torn apart, it was just normal (and a matter of time) until we've seen the Samsung Galaxy S 5 get the same treatment. Apparently, these two devices not only compete on the market, but also in the degree of difficulty for repairs. While the Galaxy S 5 will not reach most markets until mid-April, Russian website Ferra has managed to get its hands on one, and, of course, tore it apart. However, in the case of the GS5, it is easier to understand why it is harder to teardown (and hence, to repair), since we're talking about a phone which is water ...

    Every year, we wait for the major players to release their aboslute best smartphone possible. Some bring the heavy artillery to CES in Las Vegas every January. Some wait for the mobile-specific show in Barcelona, Spain, Mobile World Congress. And others, like HTC this year, choose to go it alone. Either way, the first few months of the year are, consistently, when we can expect some of the biggest smartphone announcements of the year. Not every company adheres to that schedule, though. Apple announces and releases its flagship in the last half of every year, typically September. Samsung ...

    Whatever happened to the Nokia Lumia 1820? We'd been talking about it since last year, and for a while we were hoping it might make an appearance at MWC, but then it dropped off the face of the earth. Was there still a chance this guy might be headed for launch, or were we barking up the wrong tree all along. As if from out of nowhere, the 1820 is back on our radar this evening, with a case maker's website alluding to the smartphone, along with a few rumored Samsung models. Noreve makes some fancy leather cases for a whole bunch of smartphones. Pull up one of those listings, and edit the ...

    We're so used to talking about carriers being all buddy-buddy with smartphone manufacturers. Why can't you unlock the bootloader on some hot new Android? Probably because the carrier told the OEM to disable that functionality, right? The close relationship between carriers and manufacturers is such an established part of this market that today's news seems like something that should be positively unheard of: in defiance of Samsung's wishes, a number of South Korean carriers have started selling the Galaxy S5, two weeks in advance of the official start for retail sales. Here's what ...

    Samsung introduced the original Galaxy Gear a scant six months ago. That's it. In the time since, we've not only seen Samsung's second generation of smartwatches debut, but now this Android Wear news has totally shaken-up the market – we've come a long way in a very short time. While newer devices are already waiting for us, and the next big thing is perched on the horizon, the first Galaxy Gear is still a relatively recent, quite capable smartwatch that may not be worth dismissing altogether just yet. If you've been curious about smartwatches and have just been waiting for a decent ...

    Since early February we've been hearing that Samsung might be working on a line of new Galaxy Tab 4 models. While the new TabPROs and the NotePRO debuted at CES, these Tab 4s sounded like they would offer Samsung fans a much more affordable alternative, with hardware far removed from what we saw on all those PRO editions. Samsung even mentioned such Tab 4 models on its own site (if only briefly), making this less a question of if these tablets would actually arrive one day, and more one of when they'd finally launch. We still don't have that answer, but today we get what may well be our ...
