    It's been nearly three weeks now since Samsung went official at CES 2014 with its new Galaxy TabPRO and NotePRO tablets: 8.4, 10.1, and 12.2-inch TabPROs, and the one 12.2-inch NotePRO. After seeing our fair share of lackluster Galaxy Tab models in years past, the positively top-shelf specs on all four of these models were a breath of fresh air, and really allayed our fears about Samsung's tablet strategy. At the time, Samsung revealed its intent to get these four models up for sale sometime this quarter, but that's as far as our information went. With January getting ready to wrap up in ...

    It's been just over a week now since Samsung took the lid off its latest series of Android tablets, in the days leading up to CES 2014. While we had a general sense going in of the sort of specifics Samsung would reveal, what we ended up getting easily exceeded my expectations: no matter how you look at them, the three Galaxy TabPRO and one NotePRO tablets are all high-end devices. This was a huge weight off my shoulders, because I've been a pretty vocal critic of Samsung's tablet strategy for a while now – a position made clear most recently when I tried to suggest in late December how ...

    Horrible sickness. Missed flights. Broken promises from major airlines. Desert air-induced hacking. A too-late arrival followed by a too-early departure. That's just a partial list of the challenges faced by the four-man three-man Pocketnow team at 2014's International CES in Vegas, easily one of the most difficult trade shows we've ever done. But while the road was rough, the payoff was (mostly) worth it: in exchange for our hardships, we were among the first to spend time with some of the world's newest and hottest mobile gadgetry, and we did the best we could to share it with you in a ...

    Putting Samsung's new Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 up against some of its competition from other manufacturers (not to mention other platforms) let us get a quick sense of how it fits into the greater tablet landscape, but what about existing Samsung tablets? How does this new batch compare to devices Samsung's brought to market over the past several months? The last big Samsung tablet to ship was this year's edition of the Galaxy Note 10.1, arriving back in October, and with 3GB of RAM, an Exynos of its own, and another high-res 2560 x 1600 display, it sure sounds capable of giving these new tablets ...

    We just gave you some quick tours of the three new Galaxy TabPRO models (from SamSUNG, apparently, or...? No, not like that?), including the Gregor Clegane of the bunch, the hulking TabPRO 12.2. Initially, however, when following rumors of that model's development, we were expecting this 12.2-incher to be a Note model, complete with S Pen. As luck would have it, we actually got both options, and complementing the TabPRO 12.2 we have the new NotePRO 12.2. While in years past we might have expected to see Samsung skimp a little on the Tab model and give all the great hardware to the Note ...

    Several hours ago, we brought you what sure seemed to be a very official-looking leak, containing not just detailed technical data on a set of four new Android tablets from Samsung, but pics and all the associated trimmings. By all appearances, the cat was out of the bag. Well, now Samsung's had time to make its official CES presentation, and in doing so, has confirmed its new Galaxy Note Pro and three Tab Pro models. Well, if we're being precise (or drinking the branding Kool-Aid) these are the Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO lines, but it remains to be seen just how well that odd presentation ...

    We knew they were coming; a combination of leaks and publicly available evidence has been building up over the past several weeks, painting the picture of Samsung preparing quite a few new Android tablets for release. Those have included new small as well as new larger-than-ever models, along with the introduction of a new “Pro” designation to the company's lineup. While Samsung hasn't yet gone official with the group, they now appear to be as good as confirmed, as we see the arrival of leaked pics, complete spec run-downs, and even a spotting of a Samsung banner at the CES, confirming ...

    Technology trade shows are often a breeding ground for plague and disease, so here at Pocketnow we opted to inoculate ourselves early … by picking up some crazy wintertime head colds just days before flying to Vegas for the 2014 International CES. That's right: on the first podcast of the year, all three of your humble hosts are suffering from respiratory distress and an overabundance of mucus, all of it glazed over with enough combined medication to drop a Snapdragon dead in its tracks. Or something. On the brighter side, in addition to being bastions of bacteria, trade shows like ...

    2013 brought us a new Nexus smartphone, and a new Nexus 7, but no new Nexus 10. For a while there we were bouncing around the possibility of seeing a new one, either another Samsung model or maybe even something from ASUS, but we rounded-out the year empty handed. Could that Nexus 10 refresh still be in our future? One rumor says “yes,” and suggests that its debut might be mere days away, with Google and Samsung showing the device off at the CES. This account is seriously short on details, but it does offer one compelling spec: that the new Nexus 10 might upgrade to an OLED display. ...

    Samsung has more going for it than arguably any other company in the mobile space right now. It's very nearly usurped Google as the name consumers associate with Android, and while its precise share of the market ebbs and flows, no one's even close to competing with it on the same level – well, Apple, sure, if we're looking at the US, but globally, Samsung's an unstoppable force. And there are plenty of reasons why Samsung deserves to be enjoying the success it is; even though we might have been won over by the HTC One this year, the Galaxy S series of phones continues to be one of the ...

    An extra-large Samsung Android tablet has been a long time coming; as far back as July, we've been seeing evidence suggesting that Samsung was at work on a 12.2-inch tablet, and in the months that have followed, we've tracked the hardware getting closer and closer to its launch date. Last month, that meant looking through its FCC paperwork, and most recently we've heard a little about how the model might arrive, with the possibility that it could become available in mid-February as the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. Today we look to a few hardware specifics, and hear some new rumors about launch ...

    With CES just weeks away, our attention can't seem to get away from all these rumors of 2014 hardware. A lot of our focus has been on handsets, but a few tablets have also been been crossing our path, especially those we're expecting from Samsung. Those have included devices like one with a 12.2-inch screen, or even a possible 10.5-inch OLED model, and we heard that Samsung might be creating a new “Lite” family of tablets with the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite. Today, we start getting a better sense of just how some of these might launch, as we hear a theory on what Samsung's thinking so far as ...

    How big is too big for a tablet? Samsung is clearly unsatisfied with a Galaxy Note series topping-out at 10.1 inches, and for the past couple months, we've been tracking evidence pointing to the launch of a 12.2-inch Note tablet. With a 2560 x 1600 display, 3GB of RAM, and Snapdragon 800 SoC (with the possibility of an Exynos option?), the idea of this Galaxy Note 12.2 was sounding pretty good, and last week we saw an LTE-equipped version of the hardware show up with its paperwork at the FCC. As you might recall, however, we've been aware of work on two more hardware revisions, and it now ...
