Samsung is no stranger to trademark filings. We saw four or so new trademarks for Galaxy devices earlier in the month and apparently they are at again before the month ends, and have just trademarked an additional three names. Samsung releases lots of smartphones in the high end range, and everywhere else. Today they've branded Galaxy Premier, Galaxy Grand, and Galaxy Next to their name.

Engadget got a look at it in Huawei's home office in China. After a few minutes with the QWERTY version of the new MyTouch, they came away impressed - it's not going to set the world on fire, but it looks like a pretty solid mid-range phone.
101 G9 is a solid enough tablet and equivalent in most respects to the first generation of Honeycomb devices from bigger manufacturers, almost a year later it's become somewhat left behind. That's why Archos has introduced a Turbo edition along with Ice Cream Sandwich. In addition to running Android 4.0 right out of the box, it gets a fast 1.5Ghz dual-core OMAP processor to handle the more strenuous software.
Galaxy Nexus (GSM), Nexus S, and the Motorola Xoom WiFi. Looks like Verizon users of the Gnex and Xoom will have to wait a little longer.
Temple Run was finally released for Android yesterday, with great excitement and tons of happy Android users. Sadly many of you quickly realized your phone was too old or was not officially supported. We received countless complaints and comments from angry users that couldn't enjoy it. Today I'm happy to report it's already been hacked to run on older phones, and you can get it right now.
Google Maps today with even more support for HD displays like the Galaxy Nexus and other 720p and higher HD screens. Along with the update we also get some new features to Google Navigation. Previously we could get walking, driving, or biking directions but today they've added that same "preferred transit mode" option to Google Navigation. So now you can get full voice-guided navigation while driving or walking.
Verizon Wireless is finally here. This is the Lucid by LG with 4G LTE and a dual-core processor all for one low price. This phone comes in a neat little package and will be available starting tomorrow. Lucky for you we have it on the test bench and did a quick hands-on and unboxing to start things off, and will be taking it through the trenches over the next few days.
Galaxy S III based on the model number being the GT-I9300, but some new details along with leaked info back in February has us thinking something else. Most likely this device will not be the highly anticipated Galaxy S III and according to Samsung is a mid-range phone.
ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime and a certain group of autonomous robots. Transformers manufacturer Hasbro sure spotted it, and didn't take the unofficial association lightly: they sued ASUS over the name, presumably taking offense at the similarity to Transformers mainstay Optimus Prime and similar fictional characters. The International Business Times reports that a US federal judge ruled that there was no possibility of consumers being confused by the name, and thus denied a sales injunction.
