Samsung Galaxy S II Coming This Fall To the US

Adam Shear

Many of us in America have been getting very jealous of some other countries on this planet who got their hands on the thinnest phone with a dual core processor, the Samsung Galaxy S II.  Samsung has announced that the powerful phone will finally arrive this Fall in the US of A .  Utilizing a 1.2 GHz dual core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and a super huge 4.52 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, the phone will easily stand as one of the most anticipated Android releases this year.   The phone’s software will consist of the combination of Android 2.3 Gingerbread and TouchWiz, Samsung’s own overlay for Android devices.  The Samsung Galaxy S II will first release on Sprint’s network under the name the Epic 4G Touch and will launch on September 16 for $200 on contract.  The phone will also come on AT&T and T-Mobile at a later date this Fall, keeping the Samsung Galaxy S II name.  It’s important to note that there are a few differences between each carrier’s model.  While the Sprint and T-Mobile versions of the Galaxy S II will feature the 4.52 inch Super AMOLED Plus display, the AT&T model will only have a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus display, just like the international models.  In terms of connectivity, all models will have 4G compatibility with the Epic 4G Touch as Sprint calls it utilizing WiMAX and the AT&T and T-Mobile models taking advantage of HSPA+.  If you’re looking for one of the hottest phones coming this Holiday season, definitely look into purchasing the Samsung Galaxy S II.  It really is gonna be awesome!

Review: With Android And 4G, That Familiar Looking Device Is Back – The Sidekick 4G!


Ah the sidekick – I remember seeing these bad boys around several years ago, instead of these fancy smancy iPhones and Android phones, back when it was only the business men who actually used the blackberry devices. Many of my friends who had the sidekick, had either the sidekick 3, Sidekick ID, Sidekick LX, and rarely the Sidekick Slide. I can clearly remember several people carrying a phone they used on a family plan, along with a secondary Sidekick on a prepaid plan; it was that popular! People would go out of there way to get the Sidekick, even if they had a phone! The time of the Sidekick Slide was when I saw the amount of people using Sidekicks decreasing significantly. This was most probably due to the fact that the original iPhone released late 2007!

These original Sidekick devices were made by Sharp/Danger, for the most part, running DangerOS. DangerOS was pretty advanced for its time; it was essentially all over the cloud. However, there were some hiccups along the way. Several times the servers went down causing Sidekick owners to loose their data and ALL their contact information. DangerOS was actually owned by Microsoft at this time, but the Sidekick name still belonged to T-Mobile, whereas Microsoft went of and created their version of the Sidekick, the Kin One and Kin Two, which ultimately failed. While support for these original Sidekicks ended May 31st, 2011, T-Mobile introduced a new, Android powered, Samsung made, Sidekick 4G! Continue reading

Hey Apple, Show Us The New iPhone and iPad. Thanks.


Here’s a kicker – Samsung would very much like to see the next iPad and the next iPhone 4s/iPhone 5, rumored to be releasing this fall, so that copying similar designs won’t be a problem in the future. Last month, April, Apple filed a suit against Samsung, which claimed, the Galaxy Smartphones and Tablet series were ‘Slavishly’ Stolen From the iPhone and iPad.

Is Samsung joking around? It’s funny, but I don’t believe so. In a past, similar ruling, Samsung was required to show Apple five of their products ahead of launch! Maybe Samsung has a point here, but the only problem is, Apple never announced or acknowledged whether they’re making a new iPhone or iPad, or not; Samsung is basing this off rumors and past practices by Apple. Reason being, Apple makes millions off of Steve Job’s unveiling of products. If there’s no final product to show, in packaging, by June 13th, 2011, Samsung would like to see the latest prototype or version of said product. Then again. wouldn’t we all? Continue reading

Review: The Sexy Samsung Galaxy S – T-Mobile Vibrant


SGSVibrantThe Samsung Galaxy S Series have been out for quite a bit now, and these 4 inch beasts (No pun intended) sold over 10 million in seven months; now that’s impressive.

The Galaxy S Series has been an impressive line of devices from the start, with it’s impressive internals, and a sexy screen. Originally, it was just one device that was shown of many times at events like CES (Consumer Electronics Show), but it was changed physically for different carriers.

The Galaxy S was and is extremely popular in the US; Samsung even got Google to base the Nexus S on the Galaxy S Series! The original SGS (Samsung Galaxy S) didn’t release on any of the four major carriers in the US. Eventually,  Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint did get the SGS, however, with some variations. The main variations were things such as, the removal of a FFC (Front Facing Camera) (T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon), an addition of a physical keyboard (Sprint), change in physical shape, and a camera flash (Verizon, Sprint).
