  1. At IFA in Berlin today, Samsung announced the Avis S; a 4.8 inch, HD Super AMOLED, 1280x720, 1.5 GHz dual-core Windows Phone 8 smartphone.The phone, which is due to be available next month, is quite a stunner in terms of specification, being almost on a par with the superlative Galaxy S 3. Indeed, the design language of the phone suggests that this is the Windows Phone equivalent of the Android-based Galaxy range. The specs of the phone are: Screen: 4.8 inch diagonal, Gorilla Glass 2, HD Super AMOLED display Processor: 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm CPU Battery: 2300 mAh RAM: 1GB Internal storage: 16 or 32GB External expansion: Micro SD Rear camera: 8 MPix Front camera: 1.9 MPix Overall phone thickness: 7.8mm Click here to view the article

  3. In the global Apple vs. Samsung wars, Apple has won a significant victory over Sumsung in the U.S.A, but has lost out in South Korea.In the global Apple vs. Samsung wars, Apple has won a significant victory over Samsung in the U.S.A, but has lost out in South Korea. The widely reported victory of Apple over Samsung in the U.S.A., in a court case heard by a jury, has seen Apple awarded damages of over $1billion (albeit this is a very small percentage of Samsung's profits) and it has been decided that Samsung infringed upon 5 of Apple's patents, while Apple did not infringe on any of Samsung's. There's no device blocking or sales restrictions associated with this initial ruling. Samsung will be appealing this decision, so nothing much is going to change for now. In South Korea, a judge has decided that Samsung infringed upon one of Apple's patents, while Apple infringed upon 2 of Samsung's. Damages were awarded on both sides, with Apple having to pay a little more than Samsung. In addition, both sides have had some of their products banned from sale. For Apple, the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad an iPad2 have been banned, while for Samsung the Galaxy S, Galaxy S II, Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Nexus have been banned. Once again, both sides are likely to appeal, so this decision essentially means not-a-lot at the moment. In this author's opinion, all these court cases should be stopped and a lot of the patents within them declared as FRAND (i.e. the patent owners must license them to other manufacturers). Patents covering a "rectangular device with rounded corners" can't be enforced as it prevents so many designs from such a wide variety of manufacturers. Equally a lot of the UI patents which Apple are throwing around are now considered as being the default way of doing things, in use by Apple, Google, Microsoft & RIM for their touchscreen interfaces. For Apple to ONLY be going after Samsung (for their use of Google's operating system) is stupid. Equally, Apple are merely showing that they are no longer capable of competing in the market place, so are doing everything they can to prevent any prevent competing products coming on to the market - in the *good old days* Apple used to pride themselves on their ability to differentiate in the market place and thus win their customers by offering a better product. It seems now that Apple have decided not to try to produce innovative and compelling products, and instead maintain their market position to merely prevent any competition. Samsung summed it up with their press response to the U.S.A. case, by stating: "Today's verdict should not be viewed as a win for Apple, but as a loss for the American consumer. It will lead to fewer choices, less innovation, and potentially higher prices. It is unfortunate that patent law can be manipulated to give one company a monopoly over rectangles with rounded corners, or technology that is being improved every day by Samsung and other companies. Consumers have the right to choices, and they know what they are buying when they purchase Samsung products. This is not the final word in this case or in battles being waged in courts and tribunals around the world, some of which have already rejected many of Apple's claims. Samsung will continue to innovate and offer choices for the consumer" Click here to view the article

  5. Membership of clubs is often like credit cards, the more you use it, the higher they bump you. Samsung today became part of the exclusive Platinum Club.Along with the likes of IBM, Intel and Oracle, in return for giving lots of cash to the Linux Foundation and promising to be a more 'open OS organisation', Samsung will be able to help shape how Linux develops. This might help tie things up with it's support for Tizen in the mobile arena. Source Click here to view the article

  7. The Galaxy S3 smartphone was launched in London in early May and went on sale today, 29th May, in many countries world-wide. However, it turns out that only the Gloss White handset is available in many markets (including some UK retailers) from today; the Pebble Blue handset has been delayed, until sometime in mid-June.Of course, the reasons for the delay are not completely known - it could be that Samsung are having trouble making the Pebble Blue variant of the phone, or it could simply be that the overwhelming pre-order success of the phone has meant that they can't produce them fast enough (the Pebble Blue version certainly seems to be the one most people prefer) UK retailer Play.com are currently stating a shipping date of 13th June for the Pebble Blue handset, so while the delay may not be too significant, it still won't make for the launch Samsung had hoped.

    The Boot To Gecko Os Thread

    Mozilla is fluttering it's eyelashes at Samsung and Tizen in the hope of creating a new universal HTML5 OS for mobiles. I guess they want Back to Gecko and Tizen (Meego, Moblin, Maemo) to be friends. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2404215,00.asp
  10. This is great news for many home cinema fans who've been dreaming of this day for a good couple of years.OLED screens are reputed to give greater contrast, better colours, and faster response times than current screens. Enthusiasts have been waiting years since Sony first released a 19" OLED screen. Finally, the wait is over and Samsung have released a very sexy 55" set. The ES9500 will be Samsung's range topper with every feature imaginable. It will also be mega-thin. The bad news is, most enthusiasts will have to continue dreaming, as prices haven't been released yet, but the odds are that you could probably buy a small car for similar money.
