    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 ...

    Samsung brought the stylus back to smartphones with the Galaxy Note and its S Pen, and the company's been so pleased with its reception that we've heard it discuss plans to adopt the same input technology for more of its products, especially tablets. Since the S Pen uses a Wacom digitizer, rather than acting as a generic capacitive stylus, adding support for it needs to be done while a device is still in hardware development. As a result, it seemed like there might be a short delay before we started seeing the S Pen on other Samsung gear. Instead, there's now a sign that just such a device ...

    It turns out that there will be at least two versions of the Android 4.0-powered Galaxy Tab 2 (not to be confused with the Galaxy Tab Plus), one with a 7" screen, which was previously announced, and now another, with a 10.1" screen. The 10.1" version won't be dissimilar from the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that we all know from 2011: it'll have a 1280x800 display, a 1GHz dual-core CPU with 1GB of RAM, and a 3MP rear-camera and VGA front-facing camera, available as either a WiFi or 3G device. Look for the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to start shipping in the UK in the near future. We're holding out for Samsung's ...

    Social Hub, Music Hub, Readers Hub and Game Hub; these are Samsung's hubs at the moment but today the South Korean manufacturer introduced an additional one: Learning Hub. It will be presented at next week's MWC and will be initially available on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE, with support for others coming soon. You might think Samsung took a hint from Apple (and its iBooks Textbooks) but this could go both ways. Regardless, the Learning Hub aims to bring digital textbooks and video-enabled content to Samsung tablets. The manufacturer is planning on having a library ...

    Have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and you are experiencing touch-related problems? If you decided to stick with a stock configuration or you're running on an Android 3.x Honeycomb ROM -- though there are several Ice Cream Sandwich custom ROMs available, including the official CyanogenMOD 9 pre-alpha -- you should check this application out! TouchScreenTune might (or might not) remind you of those registry tweaks from the Windows Mobile days (oh, AdvancedConfig...); the application basically allows you to custom tune the way your tablet reacts to touch. You have to be rooted in order to take ...

    If you have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 you probably already got an early taste of Ice Cream Sandwich thanks to developers who live in XDA Developer forums. However, Steve Kondik just let the world know that an official CyanogenMod 9 pre-alpha version is available for you to flash. As you probably know by now, using other ICS builds for the tablet, the camera isn't working, which is mainly due to drivers and code not released by Samsung yet. The same goes for the CM9 pre-alpha. Still, if you want to give it a try, you need to "flash the recovery.img with fastboot, then flash the ROM in ...
