T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S 4G finally gets official Gingerbread

Today T-Mobile has alerted us that the old and dated original Galaxy S 4G is finally set to receive Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The phone is still awesome, don't get me wrong but it is slowly getting older and this update is coming a bit late. Good news for owners though i suppose. The wait for an official version of Gingerbread is finally over although you wont be getting it over the air like most updates.

DROID Charge Hands-On and Unboxing

How would you like to take a closer look at the newest fabulous addition to the 4G LTE family at Verizon? We just happen to have Samsung's DROID Charge sitting here in a box and we'd love to let you have a look! It's a fat phone with hard plastic chassis, four physical buttons up front, a diamond-shaped housing for a camera in the back, and ultra-fast speeds inside*. The display is a gigantic 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen, and you can take that all the way to the bank - brightness and viewing angles galore! So sharp you're going to cut your eyes open on it!

Samsung Sued by Apple Over Look and Feel of iProducts

I suppose it was only a matter of time before this sort of thing happened - Apple Inc has officially sued Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. saying that their Android line of products too closely resemble Apple's own iPhone and iPad lines. In particular, they've said that the Korean-based electronics group copied the look and feel of it's iProducts to create the "Galaxy S 4G," "Epic 4G," "Nexus S" and the "Galaxy Tab" touchscreen tablet.

Samsung Droid Charge eyes Droid lineup

Samsung looks to add to Verizon's line of Droid handsets with the Droid Charge that sports a clever new red eye icon. As the exclusive licensee of the Droid name from Lucasfilm, Verizon has been adding to the Droid brand with phones from Motorola and HTC. The Droid Charge, originally code named the Samsung Stealth V, has identical specs to the Galaxy S but brings a larger, 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen and 4G LTE speed to the mix. The Charge has a single core 1Ghz processor and the same 8mp camera used in the Samsung Fuse 4g, and capable of shooting full 1080p HD video. The Droid Line originally launched under Verizon with the Motorola Droid. Motorola has since expanded it's robot reach with the Motorola Droid X, Motorola Droid 2, and Motorola Droid Pro. HTC wasn't about to be left out and camera along in between with the HTC Droid Eris and Droid Incredible. Now, the Droid family grows against with Samsung's Droid Charge. But what's really interesting is how Samsung is pushing their own, more ornate version of the iconic Droid Red Eye that Motorola launched. HTC wasn't privy to adding the red eye to their marketing, but Samsung has managed to use it with flair. Did Samsung just change it enough to get away with it or are they being allowed to under the terms of their deal with Verizon? Kinda much ado about nothing since it's the phone that really matters, but it's just one of those things that make you go "hmmmmmm." [via PocketNow]

Shooting for the Center – Why the Galaxy S 4G will Win the Mid-Tier Android Wars of Early 2011

If you've been following this game along closely, you know what we're up against as far as Super Phones. Motorola Atrix 4G, LG Optimus 2X, HTC ThunderBolt - am I missing any? With massive speeds from dual-core Tegra 2 processors, gigantic cameras, and "most powerful" tags being thrown around, what ground is left for the Galaxy S 4G? Why, the middle ground of course. That special place for people that've had an Android phone before but don't quite want to shell out $300 to $600 for a superphone that they won't know what to do with anyway. That place where customers want it to go fast, they want it to work, and they want it to look basically sort of nice on the outside. This is Galaxy S 4G range.
