Samsung InstinctWe have talked about the Samsung Instinct before here at SlipperyBrick. This week Sprint announced that the phone would be available on June 20. The price for the device will be $129.99 after a 2-year contract and a $100 mail-in rebate.

The Instinct was originally pegged at a price of $199; Sprint surely felt pressure to drop the price after the iPhone 3G came in at $199. The Instinct looks very similar to the original iPhone, though it adds a couple buttons to answer and disconnect calls to the front.

Samsung unveils new “green” W510 & F268
Samsung is rolling out a “green phone”, the W510, made out of bio-plastic, which is a natural material from corn. Therefore, making one of these phones won’t pollute as much as manufacturing a typical cell phone would. The Korean market will be getting it this month.

Samsung also unveiled another green phone, the F268, which has an alarm function that alerts you every time it is fully charged. That way, you won’t waste any power by leaving it plugged in. It also sports accessories which don’t contain any BFRs (Brominated Flame Retardant) or PVC.

Samsung Instinct now $199 after rebate
Is this the best Sprint and Samsung phone ever? Many of us think so. And it just got better. Thanks to the unveiling of the iPhone 3G with it’s $199 price tag, Sprint rethought a few things.

Like offering an extra $100 mail-in rebate which levels the playing field with AT&T. Apparently, current customers can buy the phone without renewing their 2-year contract, which is good news for those who want to switch carriers.

Samsung announces Blue Phase 240Hz LCD

Posted in Samsung by Shane McGlaun on May 14th, 2008

Samsung Blue Phase LCDAt CES back in 2007 there were several demonstrations of 60Hz TVs next to 120Hz TVs. The difference in image quality achieved through going from 60 to 120Hz was very impressive. Samsung wasn’t content to sit on its 120Hz laurels and has announced the first Blue Phase LCD panel.

Whereas 120Hz sets on the current market use overdrive circuits to achieve 120Hz, the Blue Phase panel will not require any overdrive circuits. Samsung also says that the design is extremely cost efficient thanks to not needing liquid crystal alignment layers like today’s LCD panels do.

Samsung releases smallest color laser printers
One thing is always true about new devices. They get smaller. Samsung Korea has released the world’s smallest color laser printers, the CLP-315K and CLX-3175FNK. The CLP-315K is equipped with a NO-NOIS print engine that offers a resolution of 2,400 x 600 dpi, 32MB of internal memory, 16 pages per minute(black) and 4 pages per minute in color. This one is 20% smaller than the previous CLP-300 model.

The company also released the CLX-3175FNK laser printer with built-in scanner and fax. It’s 40% smaller than the previous CLX-3160 series. With this printer, you can easily scan documents to USB memory or print documents stored on USB sticks, camera phones and digital cameras without the PC. Until we see something still smaller, these hold the title for now.

Samsung 2263DX 22-inch display with 7-inch LCD Grafted on

Posted in Samsung by Shane McGlaun on April 25th, 2008

Samsung 2263DX LCDIf the Samsung 2263DX 22-inch LCD is Dr. Evil, the small 7-inch LCD grafted onto it would definitely be Mini Me. The idea is that the main 22-inch screen can be used for normal work and the secondary 7-inch screen can be used to extend your desktop to keep other stuff visible.

I guess you could use the little screen for IM applications, RSS feeds, and TV watching or other things. The 7-inch screen attaches to the main display via an arm that allows it to be mounted to either side of the main display or above it. The small display connects to the main display via a mini USB cable so you don’t need to directly connect the small screen to your computer.

Samsung announces S2 Pebble and S3 Slim PMPs

Samsung Announces S3 and S2 PMPsLong gone are the days when a PMP was a simple rectangular device with not much thought to the looks of the device. Sure Apple still makes mostly rectangular MP3 players with its iPod line, but many other PMP makers are looking to more organic shapes and bright colors to woo buyers.

Samsung announced a pair of new PMPs called the S2 Pebble and the S3 Slim Portable Media Player. As you can guess from the Pebble designation with the S2 the PMP has a rounded pebble shape. It is only available in 1GB capacity and can be had in green, purple, red, black, and white colors. The Pebble lacks any display and has its controls on the back for a clean and uncluttered look. Supported file formats include MP3, WMA, and OGG.
