Samsung C3212 DuoS

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on August 4th, 2009

Samsung C3212 DuoSSamsung seems to have a thing for dual SIM handsets and their latest is the Samsung C3212 DuoS. It’s great for those who want to separate their work and personal life. This model will arrive in Russia first, retailing for about $196, then it will be released in the European Union.

It didn’t even have specs at press time, but we’re guessing it will be EDGE. And it will likely have a bunch of business-minded features with nothing to offer teens or tweens or in betweens.

Samsung SNE-50K E-Book ReaderSamsung is jumping headfirst into the e-book reader market with the SNE-50K, hoping to compete with the Kindle.

Some other features include a 5″ display with 800 x 600 resolution and a battery life that will last 4,320 pages.

Samsung and T-Mobile offer exclusive handsets

Posted in Samsung,T-Mobile by Shane McGlaun on July 22nd, 2009

samsz1Lawmakers are looking into possible antitrust violations centering on exclusive deals that most of the major cellular makers offer with handset to get customers. The exclusive deals allegedly make it hard for small providers to compete.

For now, exclusives are still the norm and Samsung and T-Mobile have announced a couple new exclusive handsets called the Samsung Comeback and the Samsung Gravity 2. We have talked about the Comeback already, so I won’t focus on that handset other than to say T-Mobile will offer it for $129.99 with a new agreement and it is available now.

Samsung Comeback details and specsWe have some more specs for the Samsung Comeback, like this quality image with official specifications. As you can see, the Comeback looks a lot like a Sidekick. The features are pretty vanilla, but this might be an affordable texting/email phone. It sports a 2MP camera, microSDHC slot (up to 16 GB), Bluetooth and WQVGA resolution on the main display.

Can your fingers handle the navigation on the right and a QWERTY keyboard? Rumor was that it may launch today, but we haven’t heard anything yet.

blockbuster-sbI think the future of movie rentals and purchases are in digital form. One day we will no longer trek to the movie store on Tuesdays when new movies are released on DVD. We will just hop on our Apple TVs or maybe even our Blu-ray players and rent the movies digitally.

Blockbuster and Samsung have announced that the two companies have signed an agreement that will provide access to streaming content from Blockbuster on select Samsung HDTVs, Blu-ray players, and home theater systems. The service is expected to debut this fall.

Samsung XL2370 Finger-Slim LED monitorThe Samsung XL2370 boasts what Samsung calls a “finger-slim” design, with high-end features like a 2ms response time and 1080p resolution (1920×1080 pixels) as well as a 40% power savings. Samsung is calling it eco-friendly because it is lighter to transport and should require less materials to produce.

How well those claims work in the real world, we aren’t sure. This monitor will come out in Korea this month, then will make its way to the rest of the world at some point. No word if the US is on their list yet.

Samsung AMOLED RFID e-passport video demo

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on June 23rd, 2009

Samsung AMOLED RFID e-passport video demoSamsung has been showing off their latest AMOLED concept, an e-passport with a 2-inch QVGA resolution flexible display in an identity card. The idea is to show a 360-degree view of the card-holder, rather than just a headshot. The e-passport uses an AMOLED display that can be powered wirelessly via an RFID reader.

Usually the display is blank (That’s why you need a normal picture. Not everyplace will have an RFID reader) but when it gets close to the scanner it powers up and automatically shows the video. The AMOLED is flexible, but also has a 10,000:1 contrast ratio and is capable of displaying 260k colors. Video below.
