Samsung has thrown its Android and point-and-shoot digital camera teams together, and come up with the Galaxy Camera, an 16-megapixel Android-based snapper with a 21x optical zoom. At first glance more akin to a camera than a phone, the Galaxy Camera includes a 4.8-inch 1280 x 720 HD Super LCD and a 16-megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS, paired with a 23mm wide angle lens and an optical zoom unheard of on handsets.

Galaxy Note "phablet," has been officially announced, a 5.5-inch update that makes the pen-equipped device even more useful to digital note-takers. Smoothing out the original Note's blunt edges with a Galaxy S III-inspired curved casing, yet still managing to be just 9.4mm thick and 180g, the Note II boosts screen size by 0.2-inches as well, though notches down the resolution to 1280 x 720.
Galaxy S III, the company's "next Galaxy" and perhaps the most eagerly anticipated Android smartphone of the year. Packing a 4.8-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display into an 8.6mm thick chassis, it runs Samsung's 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 4 Quad paired with an 8-megapixel camera.

Angry Birds away for free, but that doesn't mean the team isn't making any money on the game. Speaking at LeWeb 2010 today, Rovio CEO Mikael Hed revealed that the adverts on the Android version of Angry Birds is pulling in $1m per month.
