New Galaxy Tab will feature Nvidia Tegra 2?

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on December 14th, 2010

There has been some talk about the Galaxy Tab 2 having Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chipset and we’re hearing it again, but this time it’s coming from an analyst. Ambrish Srivastava, a semiconductors analyst, recently spent a week visiting more than 30 tech companies and thinks that Nvidia Tegra will be very busy in 2011, inside many devices.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab sequel is said to be one of those devices. If true, this is a bit of a surprise since Samsung has developed a dual-core successor to Hummingbird. One reason might be that they want to segregate the smartphones and tablets with different processors.

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on December 13th, 2010

Samsung is unleashing a special Luxury edition of its Galaxy Tab that will cost $1,000.00. For that price you get an exclusive leather case to carry the tablet in and a Bluetooth headset in addition to the stock Galaxy Tab. That’s it.

That’s right. There isn’t any gold or silver or even a single Swarovski crystal anywhere. We aren’t even sure if it will be the 3G-capable version. If this is a Wi-Fi-only model, you better pass on this one.

However they point out that Samsung’s not clear on whether that’s units in the sales channel or units in the hands of consumers. Either way, one million units is something to celebrate. Only 600,000 had been sold as of November 22nd. Now they are hoping to move 1.5 million of them by the year’s end.

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on December 1st, 2010

Smartphones are smart, but not very loud. Until now that is. SRS Labs has announced a whole new audio solution for smartphones that have built-in stereo speakers called SRS WideSurround. It will boost a handsets multimedia capability and provide a wider more detailed perspective for audio.

They say that it will be “an expansive personal surround field so, no matter if a user is holding the device in their hand or propping it up on a table or desk, the overall audio experience is notably more compelling, truly immersive and remarkably more engaging than traditional stereo.” So who is first to get it? Verizon users will be the first, with the new Samsung Continuum Galaxy S that’s available with the service for about $199.99 (on contract).

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on November 30th, 2010

Some mysterious hints of an upcoming Samsung handset, known only as GT-i9200, have appeared on the web recently. No pictures of the device itself, just pictures that the device has taken. That’s because the device is being used by testers to take sample photos. The handset may be the Stealth V and not a new Nexus S, which goes by the i9020 codename.

That’s about all the info we have at the moment. Technical information on the handset is unknown and even the photos have been down scaled for the web so we can’t even guess at the camera’s resolution. We do love a good mystery though.
