Samsung’s New Android 4.0 Tablet

Monday, February 13th, 2012

Samsung seems to be churning out a new tablet every week.  Their first foray into the Android tab market was the 7-inch Galaxy Tab, and they recently revisited that form factor with the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. In fact, Samsung seems to love the concept of a 7-inch tablet so much that they have announced their first Ice Cream Sandwich-powered tablet will be the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 2.

While the news of a new Android 4.0 tablet is enough to get some gadget fans all hot and bothered, the Galaxy Tab 2′s spec sheet doesn’t illustrate much technical improvement over its forebears, but it will be a bit more affordable than their previous tablet entries.  Their goal is to become more available to a wide range of tablet-users that haven’t quite yet made the leap to a tablet due to pricing constraints.  Look for the new Samsung 7-inch Android 4.0 to arrive by Q3.

Abt @ CES 2012: Samsung’s Transparent Smart Window

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

The past several years, we have seen displays get thinner and wider.  Samsung takes a different approach in monitor evolution and has developed a “see-through” monitor.  Their Transparent Smart Window is a 46-inch touchscreen LCD that transforms the window into a computer screen. Using the onboard interface, you can access everything from social media apps and cooking recipe to online shopping and videos.

Abt @ CES 2012: Samsung Wows With Displays, Gadgets and More!

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

As usual, Samsung goes all out when showing off their products to consumers at CES 2012.  The above image is what Samsung rolled out for their entrance to their exhibit.  Looks larger than life.

Samsung shows off this incredible display composed of dozens of their flat-screen TVs.  They definitely spared no expense with this one.

The new Samsung Ultimate TV  Super OLED Sensation is incredibly thin you can barely see it.  Hopefully there isn’t a brisk wind in the convention center, or this one is down for the count.

Samsung also showed off their Ultrabook with this super blinged out model.  This is in extremely small quantities.  Sure to please any gaudy-loving computer user.

As of right now, the market has incompatible active-shutter models based on different technologies, which the consortium wants to replace with a unified standard that will let you use the same pair of spectacles on any display or at any theater that uses the Xpand 3D standard.

Samsung Galaxy Note: A Tablet or a Phone?

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

The new super small/gargantuan item from Samsung has a lot of techies scratching their heads.  Is the Samsung product a tablet or a phone?  It’s not hard to see why there’s such a difficulty to answer that question.  The Samsung Galaxy Note is sporting an incredible 5.3 inch WXGA (1280×800) HD AMOLED display is very tablet-like, but the only difference is that it is also a phone.

The Galaxy Note comes with a dual-core 1.4GHz processor (the same as in the Galaxy Tab 7.7), 1GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of built-in storage, an 8-megapixel rear- and 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and a dedicated stylus dubbed S Pen.  There is no official release date, nor is there information as to which carrier it will arrive on, but Samsung has released something definitely worth waiting for.

3D Glasses Manufacturers Unite!

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

Big TV manufacturers like Panasonic, Samsung Electronics and Sony recently announced plans to jointly develop a specification for 3D active-shutter glasses based on Bluetooth wireless technology.  The companies’ Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative is designed to standardize consumer 3D active glasses, enabling “universal” glasses that would work with Panasonic, Samsung and Sony 3DTVs, as well as potentially others.

The new standardization can help out consumers as the price of 3D glass should eventually drop in price.  According to an article by Multichannel News, the general public hasn’t exactly welcomed 3D at home with open arms.  Manufacturers hope that this new way of production will increase availability and interest to a broader audience.

Samsung Dominant with 3D

Friday, July 8th, 2011

Samsung is ahead of the pack when it comes to the sale of 3d TVs. Despite a lot of competitors, Samsung continues to outsell other manufacturers by offering new technologies and sleek designs.  Samsung was the first major manufacturer to introduce a commercially available 3D TV in the US back in 2009.  Back then, there wasn’t a high demand for 3D TVs.  But even though there is now a lot of competition and even different formats for 3D technology, Samsung accounts for over 61% of the entire market for sold 3D TVs.

If you haven’t yet jumped on the 3D experience and have been thinking about a Samsung, check out our full line of Samsung 3D TVs.
