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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Another year, another Samsung Galaxy announcement. This one’s not only the most anticipated; it’s also the most dramatic, with mysterious textured-liquid-blob press invites and aspirational stellar-themed videos. Android fans the world over are looking forward to May 3rd with barely contained excitement. Will the product live up to such heightened expectations? Let’s take a look at the info we have, and do some speculating. Because that’s fun.
In The First Place, What Is The Product?
A few days back, we took a look at what we might expect from a [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Our Canadian friends who are running Android and are Bell subscribers will love this! The good folks at MobileSyrup managed to get their hands on what appears to be a schedule for upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich updates for Bell Canada’s Android phones.
We all know what Ice Cream Sandwich brings and we all want it. So, Bell customers check this out: if you have one of the following phones (and tablet), this is when to expect the update. - Samsung Galaxy S II: April 2012 - Samsung Galaxy Note: April 2012 - Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1: May 2012 - Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE: [...]
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 [...]
