Radiris Diaz and I attended the Galaxy Tab 8.9 event today at the Samsung Experience located in the Time Warner Center in New York City.
At the event executives and product managers showed off Samsungs new line of Galaxy devices, from the Tab 8.9 to the Player 4.0 and 5.0. (Players are similar to iPod Touch devices).
Check out a video of Radiriz unboxing the device.
Samsung today announced that it’s Series 5 Chrome book powered by the Google OS is now available at TigerDirect.com. The Chrombook was designed for people who purely love the internet and want a 100% cloud experience, because once your offline you’re pretty much out of work.
“We are excited about broadening the availability of this great product, which offers on-the-go consumers Samsung’s design and engineering expertise combined with Google’s simple, secure Chrome operating system with Tiger Direct,” said Scott Ledterman, director of mobile PC marketing at Samsung Enterprise Business Division.
Today Samsung announced the Series 7 notebook. A notebook with what I think is a sleek design that will wow pretty much everyone. The series 7 is one sexy machine.
The series 7 will be available in 13 and 15.6 inch configurations and offer Samsung Max Screen technology, they will also be powered by Intel Core i5 or i7 processors and available with 6 or 8 GB of memory. Yes that is right, they start with 6GB of memory more than enough in my book.
Other features on the series 7, a 1.3 MP camera, 750 GB HDD, and the available configurations will be also feature AMD Radeon HD or Xeymour graphics. Of course they will run Windows 7. For more information be sure to visit http://www.samsung.com
I can’t wait for Angry Birds to be on the Xbox or any other console for that matter, so that I can play it on my wide-screen TV. But until then, I can still play it on my TV by connecting the Samsung Infuse 4G for at&t to my TV. Check out the video below!
I was never much of a big fan of Boost Mobile, in fact when I think of them I think of thugs with push to talk phones. But Boost has grown up and now offers some great phones and great service on the Sprint network.
Last night I was able to get my hands on the new Samsung Prevail for Boost Mobile and I have to say I like the phone for those users who are just getting into the smartphone face and people like my mom who want one but necessarily don’t need something super powerful. Enjoy the video below.
The Samsung Prevail will be available later this month for $179 at BoostMobile.com. You will need the $50 Shrinkage Plan for this phone.
Last week NetworkWorld.com made some bogus claims about Samsung, an article that was so horribly wrong it left a bad taste in my mouth. The article claimed falsely with bad evidence and no real investigation on NetworlWorld.coms part that Samsung notebooks came pre-installed key loggers onto their notebooks.
That evening it was learned that Samsung was not installing Key loggers but the Anti-Virus software used was giving a false positive. You can read the apology by network world here.
Today NetworkWorld.com published an article part 1 of what I can only assume is a two part piece, claiming that Samsung has pre-installed Key loggers onto their systems. Two systems were tested a Samsung R535 and a Samsung R540.
When I read the piece the first thing that popped into my head was, geez I have an R540 (well had forgot I sent it back) I don’t remember having any security issues with it. I then started to panic a bit as my cousin who isn’t that tech savvy and a friend of mines who is a bit more tech savvy but still a novice, both purchased an R540 on my recommendation from best buy.
For years Samsung has made hard drives and great hard drives at that, their only problem is most people don’t realize they make hard drives.
Well they do and have been for years in fact if you buy an OEM system chances are it has a Samsung HDD in it. Samsung also has made SSD’s longer than most other storage makers at that and their SSD’s are in my opinion the fastest and most energy efficient of them all.
I recently had the chance to test out the Samsung 470 Series SSD and I think I became slightly more productive on my notebook.
I knew Samsung made netbooks but I was unaware of their netbook line until recently when I saw them showing them off at a press event here in NYC.
One particular model caught my eye and that was the R540 which I was lucky enough to get on loan from Samsung. It caught my eye because it was a simple yet elegant system with a 15.6 inch widescreen LED backlit display. I don’t know about you but simple is the new black. The R540 is powered by Windows 7, an Intel core i5 processor and an ati Radeon graphics card with up to 4GB of DDR3 memory (4GB on Test system), 500 GB drive and optical drive (Blu-ray available).
Samsung late last month announced their new Samsung SH-B123 Blu-ray Disc internal drive and lucky for me I was able to get my hands on one to test out, and I have to say I am pretty impressed by the drive.
Installing the drive is simple anyone with basic computer knowledge can install it with no issues. What is also cool about the drive is it comes with a feature called BD Advisor, which will let you know if your computer can handle Blu-Ray content. If it can not it will inform you what needs to be upgraded on your system. But people you all should know ahead of time if your system can handle a product like the SH-B123 before you buy it.
