Samsung and Apple, while bound by a multi-billion dollar business partnership, are also fierce enemies, especially in the mobile space where the two companies are competing both in the smartphone and tablet businesses.
Recent research studies that Samsung managed to move past Apple to become the number one smartphone maker in the world, but the race is very tight, and we’re not looking at a complete Samsung win yet.
What’s clear is that the two corporations are making a lot of money off of their mobile divisions, and a new study from ABI Research shows that between them Samsung and Apple managed to get 90% of smartphone profits in the [...]
In just a short paragraph, Samsung has just crushed the dreams of countless Galaxy S3 fans in Canada. OK, not really crushed their dreams, but still, I bet it’s irritating to have to wait an extra week to get the S3.
Here’s the full statement:
Due to unprecedented global demand for the highly anticipated Samsung GALAXY S III, with more than 9 million carrier pre-orders to date, the date of availability for purchase of this device in Canada, is now June 27th. In advance of the GALAXY S III availability date, most carriers and retailers are offering customers the chance to register on-line for updates, and some partners are offering their customers the option to [...]
Good news for those who have yet to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S3 on AT&T. Both Target and Amazon Wireless have the Galaxy S3 listed for $149.99. There’s a catch to the promotion, though.
The $149.99 deal for the Samsung Galaxy S3 on Target is only valid for those who are looking to upgrade their phones on AT&T. If you’re a new subscriber, the price is set at $189.99. Pre-ordering the phone now will guarantee that it will be shipped on June 21, which happens to be AT&T’s official launch date for the Galaxy S3 as well – says the fine prints.
Pre-ordering the Samsung Galaxy S3 on Amazon Wireless will also get you that $50 price cut from the [...]
Just over a week ago, Verizon started to let their customers pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S3. However, unlike their direct competitors, the folks at AT&T or Sprint (shipping the Galaxy S3 on June 21), Verizon disappointed a lot of eager customers when they announced that they will only begin selling Samsung’s hit device on July 9. As if that was not bad enough, now Bid Red has gone back and changed the shipping date from July 9 to July 10.
It’s only one day, so nothing to get into a fuss about, right? Well, after going through months of rumors and teasing, 24 hours should not be much of a problem, although I am sure that at least some Verizon customers [...]
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the best, if not the best, Android smartphones launched this year, but Galaxy S fans waited for months for Samsung to unveil the device. The Galaxy S3 was not announced at CES or MWC as initially expected, and Samsung kept everyone in the dark regarding the phone’s design, features, and availability dates until early May, when the company held a special London-based event to announce the handset.
In addition to being Samsung’s best smartphone creation to date and its current flagship device, the handset was also the most secret such project of the company. For once, Samsung managed to keep the characteristics [...]
With all the hype about the Galaxy S3 these days, does it still pay to own the Google phone? Of course it does! Galaxy Nexus owners receive all OTA updates, have gratuitous amounts of developer support, and still own one of the more powerful Android devices to date.
Regardless of these facts, many owners are itching to taste some of that GS3 goodness, and we don’t blame them. The device and its software are simply epic. Thankfully, it didn’t take long for the Galaxy Nexus’ developer community to provide loyal owners with a way to do it!What is needed?
Now before I delve any deeper into this Galaxy Nexus transformation, it is important to say that [...]
The Galaxy S3 US launch is finally (almost) upon us. For Android fans in the US, that’s great news, not only because they’ll get to play with one of the best smartphones ever, but also because some older devices will become more accessible than ever.
We’ve suspected for a while that the Samsung’s Galaxy S2, still a more than decent phone, will see discounts in the coming weeks, and now we have a confirmation of sorts from TechnoBuffalo.com. According to a “trusted source” inside Sprint, the Now Network will be dropping the price of the Epic 4G Touch to a winning $99.99 on a two-year contract on June 21, which just happens to be the release date of the [...]
The Sprint Galaxy S3 is already available for pre-order and it will be launched in just over a week from now, on June 21. For that matter, in addition to Sprint, Samsung’s 2012 flagship device will hit five more U.S. carriers this summer including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and C Spire.
In case you’re particularly interested in purchasing the device from Sprint, then you’ll be happy to hear that no less than 15 Galaxy S3 training videos for Sprint employees have been leaked, each one demoing certain features of the handset.
The videos, posted by Inside Sprint Now, are very short (45 to 80 seconds) but they each show [...]
Samsung’s Galaxy S3 has been up for pre-order from the three major Canadian carriers for a while now, with Rogers, Bell and Telus all offering the new super-phone at the same price. The 16 GB base version of the S3 is set to go for $159.99 with a three-year carrier agreement, and the chances to see anyone lowering that price tag were modest, to say the least.
That’s until today, when Quebec-based Videotron started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S3 and, surprise, surprise, the phone starts at $99.95. As you might imagine, things will not stand as they are for a long time and the “unit will only be available for the low price of $99.95 for a limited [...]
The Galaxy S3 is only the latest of a (limited) series of Samsung phones that come with near field communication, or NFC, support. The wireless tech is mostly used these days to enable mobile payments on such Android smartphones, with Google being one of the many promoters of this new payment technology.
But Samsung has other plans in mind for its NFC phones, as the company has created a new disposable accessory for these devices, the Samsung TecTile, which is essentially a NFC-based app shortcut / action trigger.
The TecTiles, which will be available in stores when the Galaxy S3 launches, come in packs of five stickers and are priced [...]
