Itching for a new Nook tablet? Well, you are getting one either way! The new Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook is here to rescue you from a Nookless existence.
Apple and Samsung are battling it out in German courts about the Galaxy Tab 10.1 possibly stealing ideas from the iPad (among other things), so Samsung went ahead and changed the design of the Tab in Germany so it wouldn't look like an iPad anymore. Um, OK.
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. This is a US hands-on, and here's hoping court battles don't stop the Galaxy tab 8.9 from coming to Australia
This morning we heard Samsung's side of the story after Apple tried to get the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet blocked in Australia. Samsung remains adamant that an 'Australian model' will still launch 'in the near future' -- but now, as expected, that definitely won't be next week. Here's what Samsung has to say.
First we heard that Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 had been blocked in Australia. An injunction? Not so responded Samsung late yesterday, “The Galaxy Tab 10.1 for the Australian market will be released in the near future.” As you'd expect, that opened up an absolute tonne of questions -- what exactly is Samsung's plan? Gizmodo asked, and here is their detailed response.
Today started with big news: Apple had blocked Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 from being released in Australia -- an injunction as iTnews reported. But in a carefully worded, almost cryptic statement this afternoon, Samsung says that "no injunction was issued" and that the "Galaxy Tab 10.1 for the Australian market will be released in the near future." Say what now? That's not what we've been hearing all day...
Apple has won a decision in the federal court that prohibits Samsung's Galaxy Tab from going on sale in Australia until patent disputes are resolved. The injunction means no Galaxy Tab 10.1 launch next week, and further expansion to the legal battle over 10 Apple-owned patents covering the touchscreen and "look and feel" of the iPad.
When Gizmodo recently asked DisplayMate to do a detailed tablet display comparison for us, who'd have thought that the revised Galaxy Tab 10.1 would edge out the iPad 2? The new 10.1 model is also said to be thinner than the tablet o' magic, but will it be cheaper? We'll find out next Thursday when Samsung promises to reveal all.
Not only is American Airlines offering in-flight streaming on passengers' devices, they're also stocking the first class cabin with 6000 10-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab tablets in total.
We've seen what happens when a Smart-Covered iPad 2 endures serious abuse. But how do different tablets fare in the same test? The people responsible for the last stress test dropped an iPad, Xoom and Galaxy Tab to find out.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is amazing in two ways. It's the first tablet that's as immaterial as the iPad 2, in form and weight and feel. (In fact, it is slightly more so, by a gram and a millimetre.) That's amazing. What's more amazing, maybe, is the fact that's amazing.
Last week, a Samsung executive was reported as saying that his company's 10-inch Galaxy Tab was "inadequate" in the face of iPad 2. Not surprisingly, Samsung has walked that statement back, saying that the tablet will be released on schedule. What to think!
Just so you know, we’re not all completely mind-boggled by the iPad 2 today. Yes, there are alternatives. We’ve posted about it here before, but you could do worse than consider ViewSonic’s 'we're not an iPad, we're a ViewPad', if you’re still desperate to grab an Android powered tablet under $600.
