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.

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 2nd, 2009

Samsung SCH-W760 releasedWe first told you about this one back in May. Samsung has finally rolled out the odd SCH-W760 cellphone in South Korea.

samsungionnetbook-sbSince January when the Ion platform from NVIDIA first launched, not many netbooks or nettops have taken advantage of the HD capable platform that crams a 9400M GPU into the netbook chassis. A few machines have trickled onto the market using Ion but not as many as NVIDIA had hoped.

NVIDIA has confirmed that Samsung will be launching an Ion-powered netbook model soon. The GPU maker won’t confirm details like model, specs, or pricing other to say its Ion platform is being used.

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.

For Samsung, this represents the largest handset order ever. The Jet runs Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro, with some serious capabilities like a 800Mhz processor and a WVGA AMOLED display. Those two features are superior to the iPhone 3GS. It even has decent looks.

The Samsung Jet also sports a web browser based on Webkit (like the iPhone and the G1), a 5MP camera and more. While Windows Mobile 6.1 is not your ideal dream touch-phone OS, we can hope that it’s upgradable to WM 6.5.

Samsung Omnia Pro B7610 gets officialSamsung isn’t saying much, but at least it has made the Omnia Pro B7610 (aka, B7610 Louvre) QWERTY slider official today. That would be the phone on the left. The one on the right looks like the Omnia Pro B7320, which is already available.

Sadly, aside from this lovely shot in the hands of an Asian beauty, Samsung isn’t giving us any details on the B7610, so we just have the rumored specs: 3.5-inch AMOLED display with 800×480 pixel resolution, 5.1 megapixel camera, 7.2Mbps HSDPA data, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, 1GB built-in with microSDHC expansion, and 800MHz processor with Windows Mobile.

Samsung Crest E1107 Solar Cellphone only $59

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on June 11th, 2009

Samsung Crest E1107 Solar Cellphone only $59Samsung has announced it’s first solar powered GSM cellphone, the Crest E1107. It’s for eco-friendly, budget conscious types who want to harness the power of the sun. Supposedly, the Crest can generate enough power for 5-10 minutes of talk time with one hour of sun exposure.

I don’t know about you, but I associate the name Crest with toothpaste, so I’m a tad disappointed that this thing can’t power your spin-brush too. It has some basic additional features like an FM radio, MP3 ringers, fake call feature to avoid unwanted calls. Even a flashlight. Yet nothing to brush your teeth.

T-Mobile’s Samsung Bigfoot

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on June 11th, 2009

T-Mobile’s Samsung BigfootThis looks a little different than that Bigfoot we saw a while ago, but you can definitely see the resemblance. It just looks…wilder. According to Boy Genius Report, this is Samsung’s Android-powered Bigfoot for T-Mobile, which will be hitting the high end of the carrier’s smartphone line.

It features a 3-inch capacitive AMOLED display, full QWERTY, 3 megapixel camera, and HSDPA. It is supposed to launch very soon, so you may want to hold off on that G1 for now.
