Samsung Intensity II coming to Verizon Wireless

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 21st, 2010

Thanks to some folks at Best Buy, we have a few images of the upcoming Samsung Intensity II which should arrive from Verizon Wireless soon. What you see is the display unit, but we can tell you that the Intensity II will feature a full QWERTY sliding keyboard, a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth and a $1 price tag from Best Buy with a 2-year contract.

Don’t want to be tied down? In that case it will cost you $249.99 for an unlocked handset.

Samsung SpinPoint MT2 2.5-inch 1TB HDD

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 20th, 2010

Samsung is now shipping the Spinpoint MT2, a 2.5-inch 1TB internal hard drive for use with mobile applications and set top boxes (DVRs, Digital TVs etc.), where you want your drives to run quiet and cool. The drive only runs at 5400 rpm, which is typical for such high-capacity drives. It uses Samsung’s proprietary SilentSeek and NoiseGuard technologies.

This drive should be fast enough for an HD digital video recorder and is likely to be much quieter than a 3.5″ disk. No word yet on price, but it should start making the rounds soon.

Samsung Captivate now shipping from AT&T

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 18th, 2010

Right on schedule, the Samsung Captivate is shipping from AT&T. We know that you’ve been waiting for AT&T’s latest high-end Android smartphone and now you can get it in your hands.

The Captivate is AT&T’s version of Samsung’s Galaxy S line of high-end Android phones, with a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen and a 1GHz Hummingbird core. Why not go ahead and add this Android 2.1 handset to your shopping cart?

Road SMS turns Samsung Galaxy S transparent

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 15th, 2010

Check out this application if you own the new Samsung Galaxy S. The Road SMS is available exclusively through the Samsung Apps download store on the Galaxy S and will create an optical illusion of the handset being transparent by overlaying a QWERTY keyboard on top of a live view from the phone’s camera.

It allows you to text while walking, so you can pay attention and not walk into things, fall down an open manhole, get hit by a car or step in dog poop while texting.

Samsung Wave sells more than a million units worldwide

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 13th, 2010

The folks at Samsung are doing the Wave, both figuratively and literally. Samsung didn’t expect their Wave smartphone to be as good a seller as the iPhone or EVO 4G, so the company has reason to celebrate. Their first bada phone has passed the 1 million mark in terms of global sales.

Keep in mind that this figure was reached before it reached it’s 4 week birthday. It will be interesting to see some more numbers as time goes by, but for now Sammy is happy indeed.

Samsung Galaxy Beam hits Singapore on July 17th

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 11th, 2010

Samsung is ready to release their first cellphone with a pico-projector built-in, the Galaxy Beam. We heard about this one awhile back and though it sounds like a weapon from an old Sci-Fi movie, don’t worry, your galaxies are safe. For now.

The pico-projector in this one is built by Texas Instruments and can display projections from 5 to 50 inches in size. The Android 2.1 phone also features a 3.7 inch WVGA AMOLED, 8 MP camera, FM, Wi-fi, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS and 16 GB storage.

Samsung Epix gets Windows Mobile 6.5 update

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 9th, 2010

Samsung has released a new Windows Mobile 6.5 update for its Epix (SGH-i907) handset. This is strange because AT&T no longer sells this smartphone over its website. And a Samsung phone getting updated?

Samsung Galaxy i7500 users are still waiting for an Android 1.6 update, while Android 2.2 is already available for select handsets. Anyhow, strange as it is, you can download the software if you own the Epix. Which you probably don’t.

Samsung Captivate headed to AT&T on July 18 for $200

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 8th, 2010

It’s official, the Captivate, AT&T’s version of Samsung’s global Galaxy S line of high-end Android phones, will be available on Sunday, July 18 for $199 on contract with no rebate needed. That pricing is no surprise, since T-Mobile priced the Vibrant the same way.

All four US nationals are getting this device very soon and that’s pretty impressive for Samsung. Will you be getting one? Let us know why or why not.

Samsung Intercept now available for pre-order

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 7th, 2010

Looks like Sprint is now offering the Samsung Intercept for pre-order on it’s EVP site. Best Buy did already sell one by accident for $100, so it looks like that may be the price for everyone, not just business customers.

They are asking $99.99 on a two-year contract after rebate. As for features, there’s a 3.2 megapixel cam with video capture, slide-out QWERTY keyboard and your choice of Gray Steel or Satin Pink finishes. We may see an official launch this weekend.

Samsung intros three new Q-series notebooks

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 5th, 2010

Samsung has introduced a trio of new notebooks in the Q-series, including the 13.3-inch Q330, 14-inch Q430 and 15.6-inch Q530. All have 720p displays. The flagship Q530 measures just over an inch thick, and packs in a 2.26GHz Intel Core i3, though a Core i5 is optional, and NVIDIA’s 1GB GeForce GT 330M is installed.

The same chipset is available as an option on the smaller Q430, which has a 512MB GeForce 310M as standard. It shares the same Core i3 chip and 4GB of RAM as the Q530, but with a smaller, 320GB hard drive.

Samsung Dive remotely locks, wipes your Wave, Galaxy S for free

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 4th, 2010

You need to be prepared in case you lose your phone. To that end, Samsung has introduced its Samsung Dive feature which is an extension of Mobile Tracker, helping users lock or wipe the phone in the event of a theft or loss.

You can also receive notifications online when the SIM card is taken out and replaced with a new one, or get the phone’s location sent to you at the same time. Sadly, the tracking feature will not be enabled in all countries due to legal and security reasons, but it will help some of us.

Samsung Wave shipping in the US, $499 unlocked

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 4th, 2010

Holy crap. What’s with that model’s eyes? She looks like she is about to sprout vampire teeth and drink my blood. Probably without even having hot vampire sex with me. Would you buy a phone from her? It’s creepy. It’s like I’m being threatened to buy or else her and her husband, the Joker will have their way with me while Batman watches.

Anyway, the Samsung Wave has already hit the UK last month, but folks in the US have yet to get their hands on it. Now Amazon is offering the smartphone to US customers for $440 without a contract commitment.

Samsung Galaxy S does video out via 3.5 mm headset jack

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 4th, 2010

Who would have guessed that you could pump video out of a 3.5mm headset jack? The recently released Galaxy S has been confirmed to offer video out through its 3.5mm headset jack. The international version of the Samsung Galaxy S comes with a TV out option that is built into the display settings, allowing you to pick your TV type (PAL or NTSC).

But you will need the appropriate cable to go from the 3.5mm jack to the standard AV ports on your TV. This mirrors the handset’s display on the TV in real time. We hope the US versions of the Galaxy S will come with this feature, but who knows.

Samsung Intercept SPH-M910 pictures leaked

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on June 29th, 2010

The Samsung SPH-M910 may not be official yet, but we know all about it. This handset is apparently headed to Sprint, taking over for the Samsung Moment (SPH-M900). The SPH-M910 is also known as the Samsung Intercept and it will run on the Android 2.1 operating system, though for all we know it may ship with Android 2.2 instead.

Some other specs include a 3.2″ touchscreen display, Bluetooth 2.1, four-row QWERTY keyboard and some shortcuts to social networks. The Samsung Intercept is scheduled for a July 11th release in the US.

Samsung announces Xcover handset with 67-day standby time

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on June 29th, 2010

If you want a cellphone that’s more tough than smart, how about Samsung’s new Xcover E2370 handset? It’s basically only good for calls or the occasional text message, but it is fully rugged and IP54-certified for dust and splash resistance.

It also features an impressive 67-day standby time and 22-hour talk time. Not sure when or if it will be released over here, but the phone should hit Europe next month for just under $100.
