Samsung USB powered monitor

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on June 1st, 2010

On the plus side, this monitor is USB powered. Even if it isn’t very portable. Samsung showed off the 18.5-inch LCD monitor a few days ago. It connects through USB and is powered by USB. So how did Samsung manage to accomplish this? According to the company, they did it “by improving the transmittance of the panel and the luminance efficiency of the backlight”. In other words, by dramatically lowering the monitor’s power consumption to as low as 6.3-watts.

Samsung plans on releasing some products just like this by next year. Here’s another drawback though. The monitor is only good for 30,000 hours, compared to 50,000 hours for conventional displays. I guess that isn’t too bad since this is for specialized needs.

Posted in Camcorders by Conner Flynn on May 26th, 2010

Looks like the Koreans will get the first shot at Samsung’s latest camcorders. The Samsung HMX-S16 camcorder is shipping in South Korea today in fact. This sexy black device boasts solid state storage and streaming video over WiFi. That’s reason enough to get one right there.

You won’t have to be jealous for long though. Amazon is already taking preorders for the 64GB model, which will ship May 28th for $1,200. You can also get the same 10 megapixel CMOS chip, 1080/60i recording and a 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD in a cheaper $1,000, 32GB package as well, in the HMX-S15 coming June 4th.

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on May 25th, 2010

The phone will support AT&T’s HSPA 7.2Mbps network, A-GPS and voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation using AT&T’s Navigator service. It’s tough enough for Mr. T, but even your wimpy hands can use it.

Some other features of the Rugby II include a 2-megapixel camera with video recording capabilities, Bluetooth and microSD card slot. The phone will be shipping on June 6th for $130 with a two-year contract after a $50 mail-in rebate.

Samsung shows off 19-inch transparent AMOLED display

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on May 24th, 2010

Samsung has another world’s first on it’s hands. This time a 19-inch transparent AMOLED display, taking the technology up a few notches from the 14-inch model they were showing off at CES in January. The company has now achieved a 30 percent transparency on its designs, and so they have some big ideas on how they want to use the technology.

Samsung sees it used in storefront advertising, just like in the sci-fi movies, HUDs for helmets and even car windshields.

Samsung breaks dodgeball world record to celebrate Reality handset launch

Posted in Samsung by Shane McGlaun on May 21st, 2010

Dodgeball – never was a word uttered by a middle school coach that thrilled some and terrified others at the same time. This is the game coaches use to weed out the weak as they sat around laughing while the kids that throw really hard aim for the testicles of the fat slow kid.

I thought once adulthood came around dodgeball was something you didn’t play again, but Samsung has proven that wrong by holding a massive game and setting a Guinness World Record to celebrate the Verizon launch of the Reality mobile phone. The record breaking game had 712 players and 600 balls.

Samsung SNE-60 eBook reader headed to the UK

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2010

With the Apple iPad on the way to the UK, it perhaps isn’t the best timing for Samsung to ship its SNE-60 eBook reader to the UK, but that’s their problem. If you want an Apple alternative, the SNE-60 packs a 6-inch 600 x 800 greyscale e-ink display and measures 171 x 120 x 16mm and weighs in at 315g.

It has Wi-Fi built-in, but no 3G. The built-in memory should store 1,200 eBooks, and there’s also the SD memory card slot. Other features of the SNE-60 include support for ePub, PDF and TXT formats, a built-in dictionary, text-to-speech, and MP3 playback.

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

Officially unveiled today in the UK, Samsung’s new 23-inch U250 and 20-inch U200 all-in-one PCs are going the multitouch route. The U250 offers full 1080p resolution, while the U200 offers 1,600 x 900. Both ship with Windows 7 Home Premium.

These machines are Samsung’s first venture into the home PC market in the UK. So you would think we would have a decent specification sheet, but oh well. They’ll ship later this month for those who want them.

Samsung MP3 player gets 60 hours on a single charge

Posted in Portable Meda Players by Conner Flynn on May 10th, 2010

It used to be a fairy tale dream for your digital audio player to give you more than two full days without needing a charge. These days we are living the dream, but it’s still not that often we see a DAP with 60 hours of battery life.

Especially one that features a 3-inch, QVGA TFT LCD that plays ten hours of DivX, Xvid, WMV and H.264 video to boot, like Samsung’s YP-RB. Looks like the player comes in 4, 8 and 16GB varieties. Here’s hoping we see this one hit stateside soon.

Samsung W960 is the first AMOLED 3D display phone

Posted in 3D by Conner Flynn on May 9th, 2010

Damn you Avatar, look what you’ve done. Now everything has to be in 3D. Now Samsung is getting ready to introduce the world’s first mobile phone featuring a 3D display. The Samsung W960 is expected to support a 3.2-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen that will display 3D images without the need of any special 3D glasses.

Looks like this is just for the South Korean market for right now. The W960 is powered by Samsung TouchWiz 2.0, will support HSPA, DMB-T TV tuner, Bluetooth and microSD card slot. Nothing yet on the release date or the price, and we have no idea when the phone would be made available outside of South Korea.

Samsung E65 e-Book reader

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on May 6th, 2010

Add another to the ever growing mass of e-Book readers available. Looks like the Wi-Fi Alliance has certified the Samsung E65 e-book reader, a successor to Samsung’s first E60 e-book reader. It’s no iPad, but you might want to give it a look.

The new model features a 6-inch e-ink display that supports an electromagnetic resonance (EMR) stylus pen, a full QWERTY keypad, text-to-speech, Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity, and MP3 playback capability.

Samsung 3D Glasses compatible with other TVs when worn upside down

Posted in 3D by Conner Flynn on May 5th, 2010

The incompatibility of glasses from 3DTV manufacturers is another sign that 3DTV is just a passing phase. And I find it to be an annoying one personally. Now there’s word from Samsung that they should work with other TVs if worn upside down. Which really stinks because you already look ridiculous enough.

The trick was revealed during a demonstration of Samsung’s 3DTVs in the UK, with R&D chief Simon Lee using a Panasonic 3DTV to explain the compatibility. The trick will only work on sets that use Active Shutter glasses, and so far it has only been tested with Samsung and Panasonic’s sets.
