The folks over at the Boy Genius Report have discovered a fresh new rumor that the Samsung Omnia (which we first heard about at CommunicAsia) might be coming to AT&T this year. It's slated to be a Windows Mobile 6.1 phone with a 5-megapixel camera with face detection, quad-band, HSDPA, Bluetooth, as well as access to AT&T's array of services like AT&T Music, AT&T Video, and even AT&T Mobile TV. Of course, we're not sure whether this will come out later this year or not, but … Read more
The first thing you notice about the electric (also available in gas) Samsung dryer model number DV328AEW is the elegant digital control panel situated at the top. An uncluttered interface makes for easy decision making, offering a high degree of custom control for drying level, temperature, and time settings. Completing the intuitive interface is a standard selector for signaling when the load is done--high, low, or off.
A large dial allows for one to choose from nine cycle settings for drying. Familiar settings include permanent press, delicate, and heavy duty, alongside finer choices such as air fluff and freshen up.… Read more
This Samsung 24.8 cubic foot side-by-side refrigerator suits a buyer looking for a side-by-side that's roomy, but a bit more affordable.
While not as stylish and feature-laden (high-end lighting, sophisticated drawer temperature controls) as some side-by-sides, this #RS2530BBP model retails at about $1,100, while still including a water and ice dispenser. (Whirlpool also offers a side-by-side model that, for $950, includes an ice/water dispenser and is a Consumer Reports Best Buy).
This Samsung model, which is on the larger side at about 36 inches wide, has a through-the-door automatic ice maker and filtered water dispenser that … Read more

Sanyo made headlines last week with a waterproof 52-inch LCD in full HD (note: we resisted saying it made a splash), but there are actually larger versions already on the market. Earlier this year, for example, we saw a water-resistant 57-inch HDTV from Aquavision, and now there's a model that dwarfs its competitors.
U.K.-based MarineAV is selling a 70-inch LCD that's "fully waterproof" and comes in full 1080p HD glory, as seen on Book of Joe. Not much is known about its original manufacturer, but its description says the TV uses a Samsung display … Read more
With the planned acquisition of mobile software maker Symbian, Nokia has decided to grab its future and run with it.
Nokia's decision to acquire the remaining stake in Symbian that it doesn't already own is designed to accelerate the mobile phone giant's product development--and serve as an open-source operating system platform to other handset makers, wireless carriers, software developers, and chipmakers, analysts say.
As a result, Nokia and other industry players hope to create a stronger defense against Apple's popular iPhone, Google's pending Android phone, and Microsoft's mobile operating system, analysts say.
"Nokia … Read more
Samsung may have had some trouble figuring out which phones it wanted to produce for this summer's Beijing Olympic, but apparently it's decided that it will settle for nothing less than the gold. In addition to the 18k P318+ it gilded last year, the Korean company now plans to another gold-plated handset.
The special-edition version of its triband SGH-D780 DuoS has a 2.1-inch display, 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, FM radio, and a microSD card slot. And, if you look closely, you can see the Olympic rings.
It's a little surprising that the logo isn't more prominent, … Read more
While everyone and his dog is releasing tiny laptops, Samsung is still pouring its heart into mid-sized machines. One such device is the R410, which we first had a look at back in May at Samsung's South Korean headquarters.
Back then, we said it was an "absolute steal" thanks to its price tag (499 pounds, or about $977) and generous specifications. Today, little's changed apart from a slight design tweak. It still packs a 14.1-inch screen, a 1.83GHz CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, a DVD rewriter, a 1.3-megapixel Webcam, and … Read more
