AT&T pulls post asking whether you’re interested in the Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Samsung Galaxy Nexus

And, once again, it looks like social media might have stuck its head where it doesn’t belong. You might have noticed yesterday when AT&T on its Google+ page ignited a bit of a fire about the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. While the GSM version is now available in the UK (and it’s an unlocked, pentaband device, so it’ll work just fine on AT&T if you were to import one here), we’re still  [Read More…]

Hands-on with the Samsung DoubleTime

Samsung DoubleTime

It’s been a while since we have seen a Froyo-powered device launch, but that doesn’t mean that we should immediately write it off by any means. Samsung has brought the DoubleTime to the table with a new form factor, and for its intended purpose it does quite well. With the flip up QWERTY keyboard it is rather easy to tell that this device is aimed towards those who will be using it  [Read More…]

Hands-on with the Samsung Captivate Glide

Samsung Captivate Glide

Last year we saw the Samsung Captivate, a great device which was quite popular, and this year we have the Samsung Captivate Glide. Unlike the original Captivate, the Captivate Glide has a slide out keyboard — as if you couldn’t tell by the name of the device. QWERTY sliders are usually written off by many as they would rather have a thinner device with a large display and just type on  [Read More…]

Galaxy Nexus

After months of speculation and hype, we finally have the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the first device to ship with the brand new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

Hands-on with the Samsung Exhibit II 4G

Samsung Exhibit II 4G

A few weeks ago T-Mobile announced their first no-contract 4G device, the Samsung Exhibit II 4G which is an upgrade of the not so old Samsung Exhibit 4G. T-Mobile took to some pretty agressive pricing to help move this device pricing it at only $ 199 without a contract, or $ 29 if you wished to sign a contract for some odd reason. Most of the time we associate a  [Read More…]

Samsung Skyrocket hands-on and initial review
