by: Simon HillAugust 28, 2012
Despite the recent Apple vs Samsung trial, Samsung will still supply many of the parts used in the construction of Apple's iPhone and iPad lines. The patent dispute will take a backseat to mutual profits.

Samsung Galaxy S Duos specs unveiled

by: LucianJuly 30, 2012

Samsung has an interesting strategy for its smartphone business that seems to have worked great so far. Ever since launching the original Galaxy S, Samsung made similarly-looking low-end smartphones as well. This halo effect helped the company make its lower-end phones more appealing to customers who couldn’t pay many hundreds of dollars at once for a flagship device, or wouldn’t pay a lot on a contract every month, in order to get the carrier subsidy.

The Galaxy Ace is one such example that has benefited from the success and popularity of the Galaxy S. Now we see Samsung coming out with the Galaxy S Duos, technically a low-end [...]

by: Gary SimsJune 21, 2012

The humble central processing unit (CPU) has been powering our computing devices for decades and the changes and innovations seen over the years have been nothing but astounding. But the big CPU companies aren’t resting on their laurels. Recently AMD and Intel have made announcements which give us a tantalizing taste of what could be to come. First up, AMD has announced that it will start including ARM Cortex-A5 CPUs inside of its x86 APUs (Accelerated Processing Units). AMD coined the term APU for a single piece of silicon – known as system-on-a-chip (SoC) – which contain more than just a CPU. The current AMD APUs contain an x86-based CPU plus an integrated GPU.

Nougat is here, though getting it to all devices is a whole other story.
