Samsung’s BDP4600 is thinnest Blu-ray player in the worldIf there’s one certainty in life, it’s that gadgets get smaller and smaller while storage size goes up. Thin is in. And it’s not just TVs and display screens that are shedding pounds, but even the portables. Now there’s Samsung’s slimmest Blu-ray player. The player is only 1.5-inches thick.

With the BDP4600, other manufacturers are sure to follow and scale down their Blu-ray players as well. Because let’s face it, most look like crap. No other specs at the moment, but we’ll let you know if anything is sacrificed to gain that trim exterior. It sure looks pretty.

Samsung i8510 camera phone gets support for AT&T 3G

Posted in Samsung by Shane McGlaun on December 29th, 2008

Samsung i8510For a long time one of the things that had people upgrading to new handsets was an integrated camera. Camera phones today are so common that the sole addition of a camera isn’t a draw to one handset over another.

However, the vast majority of camera phones on the market share something in common – horrible performance for taking images. Even the iPhone has a bad camera that often takes grainy and dark images. For mobile phone users looking for a handset with great picture quality the coming Samsung i8510 may be just what they need.

Samsung Sky DiverThere are many strange world records in the Guinness’ Book of World Records. All sorts of things from the longest fingernails to the fastest text message are recorded in the book. Samsung has held an attempt to set a world text message record using its handsets.

The record attempt has a wrinkle from existing text messaging records though; the attempt was for the fastest text message while skydiving. Samsung provided a team of ten professional skydivers with some of its specialized messaging handsets and tossed them out of a plane at 12,000 feet.

T-Mobile branded Samsung “Memoir” cameraphone surfaces

T-Mobile branded Samsung “Memoir” cameraphone surfacesThe latest blurry photos to surface are these two hazy pics that supposedly show-off a T-Mobile Samsung destined for the US. The alleged big brother to the Samsung Behold reportedly features an 8 megapixel camera. Tmo News is also reporting that it’s going to run on Touchwiz, the same UI as the Behold, and that it’s being called the Memoir.

It’s not a smartphone as the Touchwiz interface doesn’t have the flash and whiz-bang of Android or OSX, so don’t expect wifi. But that’s just what people are guessing. 3G is expected, along with a full html browser. Nobody knows for sure.
