    Now that Amazon's new Kindle lineup, including a refreshed Kindle Fire and two new Kindle Fire HD tablets, has been announced, we're sure you're wondering just how these new offerings stack up against the first Kindle Fire, as well as some of the other bigwigs in the tablet game. That's why we put together a little comparison chart, for a head-to-head look at just how all this different hardware fares. It's still not complete, as Amazon has yet to confirm a few details about the new hardware's capabilities, but at least we can get a preliminary look at how everything lines-up. Obviously, ...

    The FedEx guy was kind to us this week and dropped by our very own Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 to review! This is Samsung's latest tablet offering, it comes with 16GB storage on-board and is expandable by another 64GB via a microSD XC card. Inside is a quad-core, 1.4GHz processor, and 2GB RAM. On the top is the power button, volume rocker, microSD card slot, IR port, and headphone jack. The right and left sides are empty. The bottom has a Samsung connector port and a microphone. On the back of the device is a 5MP camera with LED flash, some modest branding, and the S-Pen stylus. On the front ...

    Picture this: you're lying in bed with your favorite tablet, catching up on the latest episode from the AMC series Hell On Wheels. You can substitute any TV show, movie, or YouTube series there, really, but Hell On Wheels is pretty amazing. Anyway, you're lying there, jaw agape at the realization that maybe the rapper Common can actually act, but you've got a problem. While the visuals are stunning on your 2012-edition iPad's Retina display, or passable on the lighter, slimmer Nexus 7's screen, you can't really hear anything. You reach to the volume toggle, hoping to avoid a repeat of ...

    Well, it's good to know that our guessing instinct here at Pocketnow is still pretty sharp. On Tuesday, we posted a piece speculating on what Samsung might announce at today's event in New York City. We offered up three possibilities, all of which happened to feature "Galaxy Note" branding, and said our leading contender was the Galaxy Note 10.1. Not that it was the most difficult puzzle we've ever solved, but we nailed it: Wednesday morning's announcement saw Samsung's newest tablet announced for American consumption (and creation), with general availability kicking off tomorrow, August ...

    Sure enough, Samsung has lived up to expectations for its press event scheduled for today, revealing the Galaxy Note 10.1, with all its upgraded hardware, as it will arrive in the US later this month. Samsung announced details of the tablet's global launch in a statement last week, which it expands upon today. Now we learn that the US will get its hands on the tablet tomorrow, on August 16, when it will sell for about $500 for the 16GB version and $550 for 32GB. We're still waiting for more info on that pricing, as there are supposed to be both WiFi-only and HSPA+ editions of the tablet ...

    Around these parts, we're no strangers to Samsung press events. The world's leading handset vendor has been on quite the publicity streak over the past year, culminating in the high-visibility kickoff of the Galaxy S III a few months back. The South Korean giant shows no signs of resting on its laurels, however, with a big Unpacked event planned for IFA at the end of the month. Before we can even hop on a plane to Berlin to cover that one, though, Samsung is calling us to New York City for yet another announcement. It's crazy, man. It's like Samsung's in it to win it or something. So ...

    If you have the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 from last year, as well as the Galaxy Tab 7 Plus, you can grab the official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update's source code from the Open Source Release Center. There you will also find the source code for the Galaxy Note 10.1, which currently is also Ice Cream Sandwich. This means that the community can get its hands dirty and release a custom ROM based on these bits in no-time. If you have one of these tablets, make sure to regularly check for such a custom ROM; if you're a ROM developer, head over to the source link and just search for the ...

    There were plenty of rumors going around last week concerning just which products Samsung would end up highlighting at the multiple events it has planned for later this month. Eventually, the story seemed to come out that the Galaxy Note 10.1 would be featured at Samsung's August 15 event, while the Note 2 would be the star on August 29. We remarked at the time that August 15 sounded a little late to debut the Note 10.1, as we had already heard of its intent to introduce the tablet in some markets before then. Sure enough, Samsung's not waiting until mid-month to get the ball rolling on ...

    Earlier today, we heard that Samsung had finally confirmed what was on the agenda for its IFA Unpacked event at the end of the month: the Galaxy Note 2. That left us wondering what was planned for its August 15 event, and we speculated a bit about the most likely candidates. If you were holding out hope that we might get the first official confirmation of the 11.8-inch giant mentioned in some of the company's documents exposed by its recent legal battle with Apple, we've got some bad news, because we just got our first look at the invitations to this event, and it's pretty clear we're ...

    This time yesterday, we were talking about the invitations Samsung had started sending out to its Unpacked event at the IFA, scheduled for late this month. The imagery Samsung chose to use could – if we looked at it just right – be seen as hinting at news about a new Galaxy Note model. Samsung could have just kept us guessing for another few weeks, but has gone ahead and have a spokesperson confirm the company's plans, revealing the intention to unveil the Galaxy Note 2 at this August 29 event. OK, that gives us something concrete to look forward to for the end of the month, but what ...

    We're hoping to learn about the retail launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, the company’s first tablet to support the S-pen stylus introduced with the original Note, at one of the events it has planned for later this month. Since news of a pre-release hardware redesign, we've been curious about just what the tablet's new specs would be. A pre-order page attempted to reveal some of those details, but Samsung quickly announced that those details were incorrect. Now, a service manual for the Note 10.1 has reportedly leaked, and may give us an official account of the tablet's ...

    August is shaping up to have the potential to be an interesting month for Samsung, with expectations that it will announce any of several highly anticipated Androids. We've mentioned before how the company is planning another of its Unpacked events for immediately before this year's IFA in Berlin gets started at the tail-end of the month. With invitations to the event now going out, can we spot any clues here as to just what Samsung might be planning to unveil? Earlier, we had heard that the Galaxy Note 2 might be on the agenda for Unpacked, but then news of another Samsung event, this one ...

    Back in June, Amazon briefly listed Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 for pre-order, revealing some specs for the tablet, before it took the listing down. Samsung responded to the incident by claiming that some of those specs Amazon revealed were incorrect, but we didn't know just which ones. Considering the fact that the tablet had apparently undergone re-engineering to become a bit more of an Android powerhouse, we've been curious to get an accurate read on just where these new specs will fall. As we await official word, one users has gotten his hands on the Korean edition of the tablet in its ...

    The Amazon source link below yesterday took you to a page where the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was not only priced and available for pre-order but also detailed in terms of specifications. Unfortunately it appears that Amazon jumped the gun, at least according to Samsung. The South Korean company stated that Amazon put the page up in error and that the Galaxy Note 10.1 is not just yet available for pre-order. In addition, according to the manufacturer's statement, the specifications were also wrong which makes us believe that the price listed could also be just wishful thinking. The Galaxy ...

    Samsung first revealed its Galaxy Note 10.1 as little more than a regular Galaxy Tab-series tablet with the addition of support for the Wacom stylus technology used in the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note. In the months that followed that announcement, we started to hear rumors that maybe Samsung was interested in making the Note 10.1 a bit more powerful than Samsung's other tablet offerings, and would bump-up the model's dual-core processor to a quad-core Exynos. Sure enough, Samsung's making the change, which just left us wondering how this newly-refitted Note 10.1 would arrive. Today we learn of ...

    When we were in Barcelona to check out the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, the follow-up to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 -- or the Galaxy Note phablet -- packed, at that moment, a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and a stylus which was separated by the tablet with no way of incorporating it. Then came all the rumors of hardware modifications Samsung might do before the tablet reaches the market and today we get the chance to see and read about some of those changes. The images were snapped at a recent Samsung event and, as far as the internals are concerned, the revamped Galaxy Tab 10.1 will feature a ...

    Following the announcement of the Galaxy Note 10.1 earlier this year, the second Samsung device to feature support for its S-Pen stylus, we started hearing rumors that Samsung was considering revising the tablet's hardware prior to its retail launch. After all, the Note 10.1 specs we initially heard seemed a bit underpowered for a 2012 tablet, and there wasn't much besides the stylus to differentiate the model form the Tab 2 10.1. We've yet to get any confirmation, but recent comments attributed to Samsung representatives were making it sound like a bump to a quad-core processor was quite ...

Let's take a look at the info we have, and do some speculating. Because that's fun. In The First Place, What Is The Product?

    Samsung seems to pride itself on having plenty of different Android tablet options available. In the past, they've largely been differentiated by screen size, but with upcoming models like the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and the Galaxy Note 10.1, it's clear that Samsung is also interested in producing devices that offer different hardware options for the same size display. A new leak out of France names a couple possibly-unknown Samsung tablets, but are these just code names with which we've been unfamiliar, or might they speak to new hardware altogether? The document in question lists several ...

    Of all of Samsung's upcoming Android tablets, the Galaxy Note 10.1, with the same S Pen stylus technology of the original 5.3-inch Note, is arguably the most intriguing. The manufacturer announced the tablet back at the Mobile World Congress, and had plenty of hardware specs to share. What we heard made the Note 10.1 out to be a bit of a mid-range tablet, with a dual-core 1.4GHz Exynos and a 1280 x 800 resolution that seemed just a smidge low for a 10.1-inch device. It's looking more and more likely, though, that Samsung is giving the Note 10.1 a pre-release makeover, and possibly turning ...

    When Samsung first announced the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet back at the Mobile World Congress, we were excited to see the company's S Pen from the Note making its way to more of its products. After all, as useful as a stylus is on a 5.3-inch screen, it's just going to excel that much more when paired with a full-sized tablet. As nice as it was to see that, the rest of the Note 10.1 was a slight letdown, if only for how very similar the hardware specs seemed in comparison to the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. A new rumor out of Korea now suggests Samsung may be working to differentiate these models a ...

    Those who are Apple fans, or simply follow the tech industry, need no introduction when it comes to John Sculley, Apple's former CEO who decided to come on-board as CEO and help the late Steve Jobs "change the world" instead of selling "sugar water" for the rest of his life while at PepsiCo. In an interview with The Economic Times, the ex-CEO, now 73, said that "Apple has an extraordinary executive team" and he sees "many good years ahead" for the Cupertino-based company. With regards to the tablet market, Sculley, an iPad user himself, said that "the only serious tablet competitor in ...

    What you see in the image above is the window of Phone4U's Oxford Street branch in the U.K. and, as you very well see, the retailer is advertising something Samsung for March 30. What could that might be? Of course your immediate thought should be Galaxy S III but with so many rumors, claims, reports and leaks it is difficult to make something out of it. For the moment we'll let you speculate on this to your heart's content, just don't forget that there are a couple of new devices, like the Samsung Galaxy Beam and the Galaxy Note 10.1 which we've met at this year's MWC. What do you think? ...

    In a post on their Facebook page Samsung was "thrilled" to announce Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for several of their devices. The post not only told us the European version of the Galaxy S II would be getting the update within the following days, but several of their tablets would also be getting the update to ICS. The post specifically mentions the Galaxy Note, Galaxy Tab 8.9, and Galaxy Tab 10.1, which will be getting ICS "soon". While that's great news, what's interesting is that there was no mention about when (if?) the Galaxy Tab 7.7 would be getting Android 4.0. Source: Samsung
