I know you all are just like me and are excited and anxiously awaiting the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 to hit store shelves. Its super thin and will most likely be a big seller.

Things are looking better and better and hopefully I can get my hands on this device soon. Check out our Galaxy Tab 10.1 hands-on while you are here.

It looks like things are starting to heat up with the T-Mobile and AT&T merger we have all been hearing so much about. Even the FCC was looking for users opinions and thoughts.

AT&T even said that T-Mobile is not a competitor, they only see Verizon as one.

Samsung Galaxy Player hits the FCC

The Samsung Galaxy Player for those that don't know is a device aimed at the iPod Touch crowd. For those like us that just love Android this is not only a great alternative, but an overall solid little fun filled device. It's basically a Galaxy S Phone without the phone. It has the same cameras and that amazing 4.0" AMOLED Display, with 5.0" versions in the works also. Today the Galaxy Player has passed through the FCC.

Sprint officially opposed AT&T/T-Mobile Merger

Sprint has made it official that it plans to challenge the FCC over the sale of T-Mobile USA to AT&T for a reported $39 Billion. According to the press release, Sprint's position is that the sale will reduce competition, limit innovation, and end up hurting consumers. Those are all the usual complaints that come from from a rival company when one of their competitors gets swallowed up by another. But if that's the case, why isn't making exclusive deals and locking down cellphones anti competitive as well?

Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo returns to the FCC

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo has made a repeat appearance to the FCC in order to test WCDMA bands 2 and 5. These bands are covered by AT&Ts 3G service and could mean that AT&T is looking to bring the Neo to Sony fans in the US soon. The only real difference between the WCDMA version of the Neo and the GSM version is just the bands it broadcasts to. But since that difference is enough to warrant an FCC ID designation, both are listed as FCC ID PY7A3880101 and FCC ID PY7A3880100 respectively.

Samsung Vibrant passes FCC

Samsung has gotten the green light from the FCC for the Samsung Vibrant to operate in AT&Ts 3G spectrum. The repackaged Galaxy S 4G, may be a phone that will be used to transition T-Mobile customers over to Ma Bell as it's model designation points to a Get More network pedigree (Model SGH-T959P). The speculation is that this phone is part of a fast track strategy to move towards the AT&T-Mobile merger, and which starts with T-Mobile customers being allowed to roam AT&T's network with phones that support AT&Ts spectrum. And while FCC approval is widely believed to be a long way off, the roaming agreement will happen regardless.

Samsung Galaxy Tab II gets the FCC approval

Samsung's followup to the Galaxy Tab has been approved by the FCC and is ready to hit the market. Dubbed the Galaxy Tab II, the new tablet was approved for wireless bands 802.11 a-n, Bluetooth, and GSM bands 850 and 1900. Also included in the approval were WCDMA bands II and V. All these bands are indications that the Tab II is set for US release through AT&T.

Nexus S Heading to AT&T Next?

It appears that PocketNow has some insight into the world of Google and their distribution of the newest Google phone - the Nexus S. As far as they (and now we) can tell, three versions of this phone have made their way through the FCC: the original GT-i9020, then the GT-i9020T and GT-i9023. Evan Blass of Pocketnow did a bit of investigating and has discovered a fourth, which thanks to the Bluetooth SIG, he's been able to identify a model that's not appeared in any other databases - GT-i9020A.
