Samsung had a pretty good day. It announced that it sold five million Galaxy Note units, which is nothing less of impressive, considering that the 5.3-inch Note is a road opening device, dismissed... by many as a freakish mongrel with no chances of survival in the unforgiving tech jungle.

But the Galaxy Note proved pundits wrong. Customers seem to love it. Elephants seem to like it, too. Thanks t...

Samsung-Galaxy-S3-Release-Date-Mockup

After a wild leak-fest (fake-leak-fest?) over the last weeks, it seems that the whole Samsung Galaxy S3 craziness has subdued for a while. For a while, that is.

Anonymous manufacturing... sources cited by Digitimes (who else) have confirmed today something that previous rumors have suggested several months ago. However, if Digitimes’ sources are to be trusted (the Taiwanese site has a...

What a rollercoaster! After days of furious speculations, today we’ve got two huge pieces of news concerning the Samsung Galaxy 3. First, Samsung’s VP for China told the press that the Galaxy S3... launch event may come in April, although it was originally planned for May.

Now, we have even bigger news – a leaked image originating from Dutch mobile blog GSMHelpdesk.nl shows a supposed G...

Samsung-Galaxy-S3-Release-Date-Mockup

With dozens of supposed leaks, rumors, and speculations swirling around the Samsung Galaxy S3, ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, the expectations that build up over the upcoming superphone... are tremendous.

Before we get into this story, a caveat: April 1 is just 10 days away. So, the story of a Dutchman who supposedly flew with a flapping-wing contraption (controlled by an HTC Wildfire S) might... well be one of the most elaborate hoaxes in recent memory. But again, part of me wants it to be true so hard that I can’t help to run it.

The story has already garnished hundreds of pro and con...

Sony Tegra 3

Sony has drawn criticism (including from us), for the lackluster device lineup that they’ve shown at MWC, a few weeks ago. I am talking about the conspicuous absence of a quad-core flagship,... something that even ZTE and Huawei, the new kids on the Western markets block, have managed to deliver, and, in the case of Huawei with stunning success.

And Sony doesn’t do any better in the t...

Samsung Fined

Although the combined $40 million is more like a slap on the wrist than a serious punishment, the fine that South Korea’s Fair Trade Commission (FTC) has applied to Samsung, LG, and Pantech... (the three biggest mobile technology makers in SK) is newsworthy.

First things first – what happened? An inquiry ran by the FTC, South Korea’s corporate watchdog, found that Samsung, LG, and...

Now this is the kind of news we like to hear – a thread just popped on Reddit, with what seems to be a press photo of the Samsung Galaxy S3. The image contains a lot of juicy details, including a... supposed Galaxy S3 release date: May 22, at the Samsung Unpacked event in London. The May 22 date fits perfectly with earlier bits of news, including Samsung’s statement that the Galaxy S3 will deb...

samsung-galaxy-s3-water-proof

Making gadgets resistant to water has been a big trend this year, with various manufacturers choosing to fit their smartphones and tablets with water protection systems.

But not all producers... use the same technology – some devices, like the Panasonic Eluga, are waterproofed, meaning that their sensitive internal components are shielded from the elements through a gasket or some other type of sea...
