    Samsung loves it some AMOLED displays, but manufacturing quality AMOLED components has always been a little trickier than their LCD brethren, and the largest Samsung has managed to put on a tablet thus far has been the 7.7-incher on the appropriately named Galaxy Tab 7.7 (above). Now a new rumor suggests that Samsung has its eyes on something much larger, and could be delivering a full HD 1080p Android tablet with an AMOLED screen as large as 11.6 inches. Supposedly, this high-end tablet would arrive as the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus, and might be on Samsung's agenda for the IFA this summer. The ...

Then Samsung takes the spotlight as we cover all the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates for legacy devices like the original Galaxy Note.

    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 ...

    I think we can all agree that tablets aren't some passing fad and are here to stay. Would it surprise you to know that we've actually had tablets around us for several years already? Would it also surprise you to know that I've got more history with tablets than I do with smartphones? Yup! We go way back! Newton MessagePad 2000 Although I started with a MessagePad 130, I ended with a 2000U (that's a 2000 that was sent in to get the 2100 upgrade). This was my life line. Literally. After having suffered an acute injury to the brain I was left with an impaired short-term memory and the ...

    While Galaxy Note users in the States continue to await updates bringing Ice Cream Sandwich to their handsets, distribution is well underway for the international edition of the Note. Not everything has been going smoothly, though, with reports coming in from France that the ICS update for the Note there is causing crashes and even bricking. Samsung has acknowledged that something is amiss, and is inviting users who have run into such problems to contact its technical support department. In the interim, it's halted distribution of the ICS update, at least in France. Hopefully Samsung will ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Today's topic goes way back to the PC days where OEMs would load them up with software that you didn't need, and most users didn't want. The term for this software? "Bloatware". Pocketnow reader Laurentiu sent in the following question: What do you think about built in Apps in Android devices, starting with launchers (Touchwiz, Sense, etc), daily apps like memo takers, voice recorders, email clients, Kies air and the corresponding widgets for these applications. Many refer to them as bloatware, while I find them useful and better integrated with the OS than third party apps. Cheers, ...

    Samsung, in a seeming attempt to have the most tablets on the market at one time, has just recently released their Galaxy Tab 7.7 with LTE from Verizon. Similar in most respects to the original Galaxy Tab 7.7 (you can read our review on this variation here), this newest rev also includes LTE/CDMA radios from Verizon. An exciting form factor with a high-speed data connection, how could we resist taking a look? But can it survive against the current tablet market? Were any of the problems mentioned in our previous coverage resolved in this version? Read our review to find out! BOX CONTENTS ...

    The New iPad is already out there and if Verizon is your favorite carrier you are able to grab one. The Amazon Kindle Fire is one of the most popular Android tablets on the market and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 from Samsung is also a 4G LTE-enabled choice on Big Red. We're putting the latest Android addition to Verizon's tablet line-up, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, against the aforementioned alternatives. We're taking a look at form factors -- whether you want to go with a large, 9.7/10-incher, a smaller 7.7-inch dimension or the smallest size of 7-inches on the Fire -- usability, user interface ...

    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

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is one of the most useful tablets that I've had the opportunity to get to own. The 7.7's size lends itself well to carrying around with you almost everywhere you go, and is not so big that it's a chore to do so. Unfortunately, it runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb and rooting has been a little complicated. After quite a bit of research I've been able to put together a method that's relatively easy, tested to work on the WiFi version of the tablet, and doesn't require KIES or Odin. (If you've got an HSPA+ or LTE version and want to try we'd love to hear your results in ...

    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 ...

    We are seeing a ton of new Android tablets revealed to the world at the MWC, but don't forget that some managed to break cover early, first showing-up at last month's CES. That was the case with Samsung and the 7.7-inch version of its Galaxy Tab, which we learned would be making a retail appearance on Verizon LTE. Since then, we've had the opportunity to check out the international version of the Tab 7.7, available as both a WiFi-only model and one with HSPA+ connectivity, but the details for the LTE version on Verizon hadn't been available. Today the carrier comes forward with a release ...

    Apple is still dominating the tablet market though Android-powered slates are starting to grab a rather considerable slice of the market. It will be interesting to see what the iPad 3 can bring to combat the army of Android tablets with Ice Cream Sandwich and powerful processors this year. However, as far as South Korea is concerned, Samsung's home market, the Apple iPad is outselling the South Korean manufacturer's tablet offerings. The (roughly) 700,000 Apple iPad units sold last year join the other tablets designed in California that existed on the South Korean market before the ...
