    In the tablet space, Samsung is a quickly growing giant. Almost single-handed, Samsung has cut Apple's tablet market share in half – from over 60 percent in 2012 to 30 percent in Q1 this year – while snapping up 23 percent of the global tablet share in Q1. We never had any doubt this would be the case, even with how half-baked the first two or three generations of its tablets were. Take the original Galaxy Tab, for example. It was a 7-inch knee-jerk reaction to the iPad. It ran Android, of course, but it was a stretched version of the phone-based OS. Google had not yet developed a home ...

    When it rains mobile devices at AT&T, it pours. At least, that's what this new onslaught suggests -- the ASUS PadFone X, Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1, and Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 are all now available from purchase from the United States's second largest wireless carrier. The Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 is a mid-range tablet, with not many impressive specs. It features a Snapdragon 400 processor, and a 10.1-inch display with a mediocre screen resolution of 1280x800. It costs $379 on a two-year data plan contract, and $479 off-contract. Alternatively, it can be financed through AT&T, which ...

Then we talk about the Wello case, which plans to make the iPhone a medical-grade health monitor. We then go through the FCC submission of an S Circle device from Samsung. We end today's show talking about the patent of the Samsung Galaxy Glass. All this and more after ...

    "What would you say to the people who think that what you do is illegal?" " ... I would tell them that I don't want to answer this question." When you're interviewing the world's most notorious phone leaker, he's bound to duck a question or two. But cautious though he is, Evan Blass –formerly of Pocketnow and currently known across the web by his pen name @evleaks– is also a fountain of insight into the shadowy craft of being a professional spoiler. On today's episode of the Pocketnow Weekly, Evan shares the ups and downs of the underworld he's come to dominate, and gives us a glimpse ...

    It's a tale of two tablets: one week ago, we saw a leak indicating that Verizon was planning on adding both the LG G Pad 8.3 and Samsung's Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 to its offerings today, on March 6. We had already gotten confirmation from Samsung that the carrier would introduce the tablet sometime this quarter, but there still wasn't an official date. Then on Tuesday Verizon issued a statement which verified that the G Pad 8.3 would indeed go up for sale today – but there was no word about the NotePRO. Well, now that March 6 is upon us, not only has Verizon started sales of the LG tablet as ...

    Samsung's Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 may be a serious tablet heavyweight, but it's also got a premium sticker price to match, selling for $750 on up. If you've been hoping that a carrier subsidy might be a nice way to bring that figure down a little you're in luck, as we've already seen evidence of a Verizon-branded NotePRO 12.2 leak. But when might such a device actually arrive? If we're to believe a new leak, it could be just one week away, with launch dates revealed for both the NotePRO 12.2, as well as LG's Android tablet. As you can see below, this message indicates that Verizon's preparing ...

    One of the most exciting devices out of CES this year was easily Samsung's monstrous Note tablet, the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2. On paper, it's nothing terribly mind-blowing. It's quite literally the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, which we reviewed last year, on a much larger scale. Inside, it has the same 3GB RAM, 32 or 64GB of fixed storage with expansion via microSD, a 9,500mAh battery, and one of two SoCs. Like the 2014 Note 10.1, the LTE variant comes with a Snapdragon 800 chip and the Wi-Fi model is fitted with an Exynos 5 Octa chipset. Both have 8-megapixel cameras, the S Pen, and 2,560 ...

    The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 should land, on Verizon, as a first, with 4G LTE connectivity, later this quarter. We've learned this, and more, about Samsung's CES tablet line-up from a recent Samsung official press release. While it could land even at the end of March, and still be "later this quarter", we're getting a look at the Verizon Note Pro 12.2 in this leaked render. Courtesy of @evleaks, we're seeing the large tablet rendered above, with rater prominent branding on the back, calling out both Verizon and the 4G LTE logos. Aside from the addition of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 ...

    Yesterday we started getting some answers to the questions we've been asking for the past several weeks about the commercial availability of the new Samsung Galaxy TabPRO and NotePRO tablets. The big detail we wanted to see filled-in was pricing, and we got that as a retailer opened pre-orders of the 64GB NotePRO 12.2 and the 32GB TabPRO 12.2. Those two only make up a fraction of the full lineup, so luckily Samsung comes through today with details on the rest. Remember, we already saw the 64GB NotePRO 12.2 selling for $850 and the TabPRO 12.2 for $650. Samsung confirms both those figures, ...

    Samsung's Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 is one beast of a tablet. From the giant, high-res screen, to the best-in-class SoC options, and even to the compelling new Magazine UX, there's a lot to like here. But all these top-tier specs don't come cheaply, and it was clear from the get-go that this would be an expensive device. What we've been trying to suss-out over the past few weeks, though, has been just how expensive it would ultimately be. We've seen some pricing figures for Europe already, and translating directly to dollars, they painted the picture of a tablet going for $1000 or more for its ...

    Samsung's four latest Android tablets, the NotePRO and three TabPRO models introduced at CES, all have some enviable hardware, and represent a big step forward from the sort of selection we saw in the Galaxy Tab 3 lineup. While we're anxious to see these models go up for sale, we're also just a bit concerned about pricing, with fears that it's all going to be prohibitively expensive. What we don't have yet, though, is confirmation of any US retail pricing. That's led us to speculate based on prices abroad, and today we get some new ammunition as Samsung starts taking pre-orders for the ...

    It's easy to be overly critical of Samsung. The company is larger than some of its biggest competitors several times over, and it has the man power, resources, and know-how to not make some pretty obvious mistakes over and over again. We've reamed Samsung more than once for shipping substandard products with laughably awful software and performance optimization. TouchWiz UX, for example, has shipped on dozens of Samsung products over the years. It's not only long in the tooth, cluttered, and … ugly, it is some of the most poorly optimized Android software we've ever dealt with time and ...
