The key element for a great tablet has always been a truly innovative and top performing display, and the best leading edge tablets have always flaunted their beautiful high tech displays. But Tablet displays are more challenging to produce because their large screens are three to four times the size of a smartphone.…
The Galaxy Note 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 2 are finally getting an upgrade to 4.1 Jelly Bean. Welcome to the present.
If you really want a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, you can buy it now because Judge Koh dissolved the sales ban.
Thanks to the Apple vs. Samsung patent war, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been off the market here in the States due to an injunction awarded a month ahead of the big showdown. Now, a U.S. appeals court has ruled that it's time to reconsider that ban.
Jin Soo Kim, a Samsung industrial designer, was called to the stand today by Samsung at Apple and Samsung's court battle and revealed this: the Galaxy Tab 10.1 project couldn't have ripped off the iPad because the Tab 10.1 project began in October 2009 (while the iPad was announced on January 27, 2010). Kim even went…
There are many, many accusations being tossed back and forth between Apple and Samsung. There have been for months, there will continue to be. But perhaps none of them has perfectly distilled the fight that the two megacorps are having quite like Samsung's Chief Product Officer Kevin Packingham did in an interview…
The UK judge that ruled that Samsung didn't copy the iPad because the Galaxy tab was "not as cool" as the iPad has now ordered Apple to take back its accusations against Samsung by publicly saying Samsung did not copy the iPad's design on the Apple website and various magazines and newspapers.
Samsung mustn't know whether to celebrate or not. A UK judge has ruled that the Galaxy Tab doesn't infringe Apple's registered design, in large part because it's "not as cool" as the iPad. Ouch.
The legal scuffling between Apple and Samsung had almost gotten boring; cases have been either summarily dismissed or been decided in far-flung parts of the globe. But last night, the hammer finally fell on Samsung here at home: no more Galaxy Tab 10.1s can be sold in the US, by court order.
You probably need a cheat sheet to keep track of all of Samsung's tablets: the Galaxy Tab 7, the 10.1, the 8.9, the 7.0 Plus, the 7.7, and did I hear a niner in there? And now there's the Galaxy Tab 2, with two models (7.0 and 10.1) that are very slightly improved, but not enough to justify a few hundred bucks.
Earlier this week, Samsung named the devices that were due to get Ice Cream Sandwich in early 2012. They've now confirmed that the Galaxy S and 7-inch Galaxy Tab definitely aren't in line for the update.
So this one landed on our desk with a big ol' thud of a HUH? BGR is reporting that, according to a trusted source, Samsung is making a 11.6-inch, 2560 x 1600 resolution Galaxy Tab that will be announced next February. You're going to need a bigger—actually—just use that humongous tablet as the boat.
Score one for Samsung! It just registered a major victory in its cantankerous dispute with Apple over the Galaxy Tab. An Australian court has overturned its October injunction against the devices for violating Apple's touchscreen technology after a quick redesign by Samsung. Tabs will be back on store shelves Friday…
Apple and Samsung have been battling in German courts about whether the Galaxy Tab 10.1 stole ideas from the iPad or not (among other things). So to avoid the injunction, Samsung went ahead and changed the design of the Tab in Germany so it wouldn't look like an iPad anymore.
Apple is engaged in a very public lawsuit with Samsung, alleging that Samsung has gone too far in mimicking their product designs. Now Samsung is putting Apple's design guru Jonny Ive on the stand to explain all the ways they've supposedly infringed on patents.
A US judge agreed with Apple's claim that Samsung's Galaxy tablets infringe on their iPad-related patents. According to Reuters, this comment was made as part of an injunction request by Apple.
Remember the Galaxy Tab 10.1? We called it the best Android Tablet yet, and it still is. This is basically that, but 1.2 inches smaller.
So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn't possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn't worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case.
Rule against the Galaxy Tab for patent infringement once, shame on you. Rule against the Galaxy Tab for patent infringement twice, well, that's when maybe Samsung's screwed for real. In Germany, at least.
