    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 ...

    The All New HTC One won't grace us with its presence until the end of the month, and at this point we're beginning to wonder if HTC will have anything left to reveal at the announcement. From a sales guide to promotional materials to yet another undercover hands-on video, the leaks surrounding one of the year's most anticipated Android handsets refuse to let up – and we're here to talk about them in our latest pre-#ANHO podcast! Before that, of course, we've got the usual news of the week, including a duo of Samsung tablet reviews, rampant speculation about a brick-and-mortar Google ...

    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 ...

    While larger iPad rumors remain just that, rumors for now, Samsung has been silently developing and announcing its large tablet, the Galaxy TabPRO 12.2 which we've recently seen at CES, alongside its smaller brethren, the TabPRO 10.1 and 8.4. According to Taiwan-based supply chain makers cited by Digitimes, Apple is expected to ship 80-90 million, while Samsung 60-70 million tablet units. However, the 12.9-inch iPad which we've heard about for quite some time now is yet nowhere to be seen; maybe Samsung's pressure with its 12.2-inch slate will urge it to the market, but industry and ...

    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 ...
