Galaxy S

Samsung Galaxy S Wifi 4.0 and Galaxy S Wifi 5.0 Official

Today there's one big fat announcement coming from Samsung on two new fabulous additions to their massively-successful Galaxy S line. What'll it be? Something gigantic? Something tiny and thin? How about a little of both, and without any network connection? Sounds intriguing! How about if we tell you that the two devices announced in this post have no plans for release in the USA whatsoever? A terrifying prospect to be sure! What ever will we use to stopper the hunger for such a unique device?

Samsung Galaxy S II Rooted by Chainfire

All you've gotta do is flash this thing down here and run SuperOneClick, and poof! It's a root! Chainfire is a developer from over at XDA Developer Forums who's about to go on a death-defying 10 day fast from dev work. Why, I do not know. What I do know is that before he left, he granted the world a lovely Kernel so that they may feast upon a rooted Galaxy S II. You'll have to be one of the few lucky enough to already have one of these devices in your hands of course to have all the fun, but it's nice to know it'll be there for you once you're part of the bigtime Samsung Galaxy S II party - and what a party it's going to be!

Samsung Galaxy S II commercial clevery touts slim design

Samsung's latest commercial for it's Galaxy S II Android smartphone cleverly shows just how thin it is. The commercial shows a rather irate girlfriend slamming the door on her significant other after a tiff.

Samsung Fascinate to Receive Froyo Tomorrow [Verizon Confirms]

We've just received a note from Verizon letting us and the world know that Android 2.2 Froyo will be pushing to the Samsung Fascinate tomorrow, April 21st, 2011. This update brings the phone up to nearly the newest mobile operating system, trumped, of course, only by Android 2.3 Gingerbread and the tablet-based version of the OS, 3.0 Honeycomb. We would expect that the update will start shooting out over the air tomorrow in certain areas of the country, but if you just can't wait, there's always a manual download.

Samsung Galaxy S II Blows up the Quadrant Benchmark

We have all been seeing a lot of dual-core phones on the horizon, and one thing we always do first is a Quadrant benchmark or something of that sort.

Galaxy S Gingerbread inside April Says ThreeUK

Apparently carrier ThreeUK has the inner track on when Gingerbread will be coming out for Galaxy S devices. What they do not say they know is which carriers will be getting this update for their users to implement first, what they do say they know is that it's within the next couple of weeks. What this is being reported as by other sites is "OMFG GINGERBREAD COMING TO ALL GALAXY S PHONES IN APRIL, CONFIRMED," this is simply not true.

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]
