    There’s no denying that the tablet industry has evolved at a tremendous pace in less than three years. For those of us non-believers of the original Microsoft Tablet PC, or even the first iPad and its potential, it was hard to even predict that the services and devices that we see ubiquitous today, would’ve been possible so quickly. That being said, there is no such thing as a perfect tablet, and not every device fits every user. Make sure you watch today’s Top 5 as we talk about the things we all wish to see happening in 2014. We discuss the things that are still not fixed, and the ...

    Sure as the sun will rise in the east, and water shall remain wet, Apple and Samsung will always be at each other's throats, duking it out in a court of law. Most recently, we saw Samsung stuck with the bill for another $290M in damages, but today we're not talking about money at all: Apple's out for blood – or more specifically, for getting 20-some Samsung devices banned from sales. Apple had already pushed for a move like this last year, but Judge Koh was not feeling too persuaded by Apple's arguments for a ban back in December 2012. A lot's happened since then, and last month's ruling ...

    You probably know about the back and forth in the UK regarding the acknowledgement Apple had to publish on its website. The initial text was found to be improper and the court ordered Apple to replace it, something which happened recently in the printed media too. Now Apple's website features not one but two acknowledgements. The first one, at the bottom of the front page, contains a link to the legal text alongside the lines: "On 25 October 2012, Apple Inc. published a statement on its UK website in relation to Samsung's Galaxy tablet computers. That statement was inaccurate and did not ...

    Remember the apology Apple had to post on its UK website after losing the trial against Samsung for tablet design patents? Judges ruled that Apple should post, both on the website and in the printed media, an acknowledgement that Samsung did not copy its products’ design — a decision which is still subject to a possible Supreme Court appeal -- because Samsung tablets were not as "cool" as Apple's. Apple did post some sort of acknowledgement but the wording doesn't please the judges. The U.K. Court of Appeal in London found the text “untrue” and “incorrect” and has decided ...

    Despite the iPad having been on the market for some time now, tablets in general are on the cusp of an evolution. They're trying to find out just how big their screens should be, how thick or thin they should be, and how the user interface should work. Another major consideration is the transition from finger-only use to keyboard and stylus. Trying to answer all those in one fell swoop is the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. On first look, the average person won't find much fault with the device, but after a few minutes they'll likely be turned off by its slippery back, its faux-metal shell, and ...

    We all know that Apple somehow ended-up winning the whole patent case against Samsung. The interesting part though, is that the only device we actually did agree "looked exactly like an iOS device", didn't infringe any copyrights according to the jury. That's right, believe it or not, it seems like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 does not look like the iPad 2. The biggest problem Samsung now faces is that Apple paid a $2.6 million bond in order to secure the injunction over the Galaxy Tab 10.1 until a damages hearing happens. Since the device is no longer guilty, it's only fair that the court ...

    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 ...

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was launched together with the Galaxy S II at last year's MWC in Barcelona (mid-February) but it only just now gets an official update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, alongside upcoming refreshes for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 WiFi, Galaxy Tab 7.7, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus WiFi, according to reports. If you have a Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi and you live in the UK, you will probably be able to upgrade via KIES or over-the-air. The official ROM pushed out in the UK wears a build date of July 17 and the version numbers are: PDA - P7510XXLPH, CSC - ...

    If you've been following the most recent developments in the legal shoving match taking place between Apple and Samsung, you're no doubt aware of the recent success Apple's seen in having preliminary injunctions against certain Samsung models granted. Sure, the Galaxy Nexus injunction was later given a temporary stay, but Apple must be feeling pretty confident about its position. To that end, it's just come to light that Apple decided to take matters into its own hands, and has been directly contacting retailers and carriers who do business with Samsung to warn them not to sell the Galaxy ...

    The legal maneuvering between Samsung and Apple in the United States has seen plenty of action lately, with rapid shifts between just who seems to be on top at any given moment. While Apple recently scored itself a couple preliminary injunctions against Samsung, we also saw a temporary stay placed on one of those, as well as learned of a Samsung software solution to render the whole thing unnecessary. All in all, it's a lot temporary victories with a lack of any sense of real progress nor consequence. The situation in England isn't much different, save for Samsung emerging victorious from ...

    Samsung rounds-out this week with decisions coming in on a pair of rulings made regarding the sales injunctions against two of its Androids. Ultimately, the manufacturer finds its fortunes split, with one ruling supporting and one against its interests. Good news first: the preliminary injunction halting imports of the Galaxy Nexus has received a temporary stay, clearing Google to resume sales of the handset. Sure, it was planning on doing so next week anyway, after releasing Jelly Bean for the phone and making some small modifications to avoid infringing upon the single issue at hand, but ...

    Yesterday, Apple has been granted an injunction against Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the U.S., granted, that Cupertino has to post a $2.6 million bond protecting Samsung from losses in case the ruling turns out to be wrong; only then will the injection become effective. Make no mistake, Apple already posted the bond like a champ, according to reports. Samsung, on its end, filed a motion to stay the injunction pending its appeal with the Federal Circuit and asked for an expedited hearing by Friday. Apple, according to reports, agreed to the expedite request, but asked for Monday as a ...

    Apple filed a motion for preliminary injunction against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the U.S. on May 19, having Cupertino's design patent at its core. Fast forward to the present and Apple managed to successfully block the sales of the Samsung tablet in the U.S., just a couple of hours before Google I/O kicks off. Well known by now U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh has initially denied Apple's motion but an appeal's court considered it was time to review the order. The Judge said that "although Samsung has a right to compete, it does not have a right to compete unfairly, by flooding the ...

    More than three months ago Samsung decided to roll out the official Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Samsung Galaxy S II and, at that time, many owners of 2011 Samsung Galaxy tablets were hoping to see the same for their devices. That didn't happen but according to recent reports the Android 4.0 refresh will soon (finally) be pushed out. If you have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, 8.9, 7.7 or Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, you should expect the process to start next month. However, the report claims that most of the updates are planned for August. No cool, Samsung! Aside from the platform refresh there ...

    Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero was appointed to oversee settlement talks between Apple and Samsung -- ordered by Judge Lucy Koh from the United States District Court for the Northern District of California -- over the course of two days on Monday and Tuesday, May 21 and 22. This might come as no surprise to you but the two giants have not reached an agreement, according to reports. Samsung's CEO Choi Gee-sung and Head of the firm’s Mobile Division, Shin Jong-kyun, were present at the meeting on behalf of the South Korean manufacturer and Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, represented the ...

    This is probably not the best way to sit down at the table, start negotiations, and try to settle -- as the court ordered Apple and Samsung for May 21 and 22; the Cupertino company has filed for an immediate U.S. preliminary injunction against Samsung and its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, having a court order at its base recognizing Apple's design patent (in appeal). Samsung had to slightly redesign the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany -- because of Apple's design patent infringement claim -- where you can find the Galaxy Tab 10.1N (with the speakers being placed on the bezel to the left and right of ...

    Three weeks ago, we saw Samsung publish a list of just which of its Android devices would be seeing Ice Cream Sandwich updates arrive in the US. We already had our suspicions that many of those devices would be getting ICS thanks to news about updates for their international versions, and others we had already seen confirmed by the carriers themselves. Still, it was good to see confirmation in those cases where we previously lacked it, as well as get the chance to see the status of all these Samsung models in a nice carrier-by-carrier breakdown. At least, that's largely what we got, but at ...

    As the past generation of Android smartphones ever-so-slowly starts receiving updates to bring them forward to Ice Cream Sandwich, we've heard plenty of promises from both manufacturers and carriers about which devices would end up making the Android 4.0 cut, and which would be left behind. Today we've got some updated info on the manufacturer side of things, with Samsung publishing a carrier-by-carrier breakdown of which models would be seeing ICS updates in the States. Since we've already heard commentary about many of these models and their prospects for ICS before, this document isn't ...

    OK, this one is for the power users that want to have the best of both worlds, meaning the fresh MetroUI on their Google Android-powered tablets. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Asus Transformer owners, check this out! It basically is a theme which allows you to make your tablet's homescreen look like Windows 8 (or Windows Phone 7) with its Metro UI. You will have to flash this one using ClockworkMod Recovery but that shouldn't scare you off if you are a heavy tweaker/modder. To find out more details, instructions and feedback, follow the source links below according to your tablet's make. ...

    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 ...

    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

    Google yesterday brought the news that the good old Android Market (as well as Google Music) will be rebranded to Google Play. Whether it is something that will help Google take its game one step further is so far a mystery, though Michael is trying to explain Play implications on Android tablets. Our Samsung Galaxy S II, residing in Europe, and running the latest leaked Samsung Ice Cream Sandwich ROM has just received its Google Play update. It replaces the Android Market and the shortcut becomes Play Store (with version 3.4.6). Guess what: our Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 running a custom ICS ...

    So far, news about which Android handsets will be making the journey to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and which will be left behind to stagnate has largely been coming from the manufacturers themselves. Some, like Motorola, have detailed support pages up outlining which models should be seeing updates, and when. Other are content to release snippets of their progress on the likes of Twitter and Facebook. Today, though, that news is coming from a carrier, with Verizon publishing a list of devices on its network that are slated to receive Ice Cream Sandwich. Verizon calls this a list of its ...
