The stream of new Samsung handset continues with this week's announcement of the Galaxy 3 and Galaxy 5. Currently being shown off at CommunicAsia, the handsets are slated for European and Asian markets starting next month. The i5800 Galaxy 3 is aimed at the younger, social networking market and the i5500 Galaxy 5 should appeal to the style-conscious customers. Both use Android 2.1 although I expect updates to 2.2 Froyo before too long.

Samsung will release its Galaxy Tab tablet no later than the third quarter of this year, revealed J.K. Shin, president of the company's mobile communications division, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal published Tuesday.
Based on the few specs and a photo leaked earlier this month, the Galaxy Tab will sport a high-resolution 7-inch display, making it more compact than Apple's iPad with its 9.7-inch screen. Blog site Samsung Hub (not affiliated with Samsung) said the 7-inch model will hit the market in August, and that two others may follow: an 8-inch version in … Read more
Tuesday was no exception as I read that the i8520 Galaxy Beam will head to Singapore next month. Formerly known as the "Halo," the Galaxy Beam will be the first Android handset to feature a pico-projector. Created by Texas Instruments, the projector has 6 lumens and can project images anywhere from 5 to 50 inches.
Aside from the projector, the Beam boasts impressive hardware. Powered by Android … Read more
Sound bars aren't as thin as the slimmest HDTVs yet, but the Samsung HW-C450 ($300 street price) is getting close. It is less than 2 inches thick, which seems almost impossibly thin, considering the fact that it houses six drivers and built-in amplification. Even more impressive is that Samsung manages to get some great sound quality out of those cramped quarters (plus a wireless subwoofer), with better-than-average sonic detail on movies.
Boosted by growing consumer demand for advanced TVs, Samsung carved out a leading share of the U.S. LCD TV market in the first quarter, according to data released Monday by iSuppli.
For the quarter, the South Korean company shipped 1.1 million LCD TVs. Though that number was down 33 percent from the fourth quarter, Samsung still beat out the overall industry, which saw its shipments drop by 35.8 percent. This difference helped Samsung inch its market share up to 18 percent from 17.3 percent in the previous quarter.
The overall decline in LCD TV shipments is … Read more
The busiest room in the house has got to be the kitchen. Heavily trafficked from morning to night (and sometimes for that midnight snack), the kitchen serves as the nerve center of the house. Facing activity all day long, anything that streamlines cleanup procedures in the kitchen can only be viewed as a welcome inclusion. Considering that there's enough of both already, noise and mess are two aspects that every household wishes to reduce.
The Samsung DMT800 Dishwasher features a heavy-duty wash system and advanced insulation for effective and quiet operation. For hard-to-wash items, a special zone at the … Read more
Almost one month after we first learned of U.S. Cellular's upcoming exclusive Android handset, the first official look at the phone has arrived online.
How do we know it's official? Samsung is the party responsible for the leaked image. An Engadget reader happened upon the phone "without much effort" and passed along the picture. It also looks exactly like the phone that was on display at Google I/O last month.
Refrigerators have a long history of being severely limited--at least in regards to controllable customization. From their humble beginnings as boxes basically designed to hold a giant ice cube, the "icebox" has come a long way. No longer are kitchens held hostage by slowly melting blocks of ice, but the same incapability to regulate temperature effectively exists today as it did back then. Sure, our modern refrigerators let you dial in preferred temperature, something their old-timey counterparts could only dream of, but when it comes right down to it, these giant monoliths found in every kitchen are still … Read more
According to a trusted source for TmoNews, the Samsung Galaxy S could be arriving for T-Mobile on July 21. While T-Mobile has not confirmed this, it does fall under the "summer" release time frame promised by Samsung back at the smartphone's unveiling in March. As for the other three big carriers in the United States, nothing has been whispered as to when they will get the phone.
