Samsung Galaxy S II

Samsung Pure Breeze Android Launcher app Review [Video]

If there's one thing that device manufacturers across the board are NOT known for, it's optional user interfaces. Instead it's nearly always a face over the top of Android that, if you're not too keen on hacking your device, you're sort of stuck with. Of course manufacturers don't want you to see it that way, promoting their devices alongside their user interfaces as added value - take TouchWiz for example on Samsung devices (video included below aside Pure Breeze video). TouchWiz is what Samsung places on the vast majority of their Android devices, namely their Galaxy S II line coming to the USA this month and the Infuse 4G which we're using for this hands-on look at what Samsung has silently released as a brand new Launcher - Pure Breeze!

Android Community Weekly: September 3, 2011

To start off September, we have a massive amount of tech news to present in this issue of Android Community Weekly! Sunday, the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE and Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE were officially announced. Later on, we ran across a recently initiated build of CyanogenMod 7 for none other than the HP TouchPad. Which build will have full functionality first? CM7 or the Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) port that’s also in the works?

Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Hands-On Special Edition with Philip Berne [Video]

It's always an great day when you run into Philip Berne, Samsung Telecommunications Marketing Manager, Technical Media, and columnist for our sister site SlashGear - this week we asked him to give us a special edition rundown of what we should expect from the Epic 4G Touch version of the Galaxy S II USA launch, and he of course gratefully provided us with nothing less than a super classy look at the device. You may remember our look at the international version of the Galaxy S II back at CTIA 2011 with Philip Berne as well - an internationally known set of videos that gave many their first look at one of the best selling Android devices in history. Join us for a cool hands-on demo video straight from the pro.

Samsung Galaxy S II AT&T Featured Apps App Hands-On [Video]

Beyond what we've seen thus far in what new apps we'll be getting to see on these USA versions of the Galaxy S II, there are a sparse (and perhaps thankfully sparse) few additional new apps to behold on each of the devices. One app that we're refreshingly GLAD to see added to the lineup comes on AT&T's version of the Galaxy S II, an app called "Featured Apps", it being an extremely simple system for AT&T to be showing off applications that it suggests specifically to the device it's featured on, thereby helping the (perhaps new) owner with finding out with what their device is capable of.

Samsung Galaxy S II USA Accessories Rundown [Video]

The kind folks at Samsung invited us this week to New York City where we were treated to full-fledged reveal of not one, but three new Galaxy S II devices PLUS some docking accessories for those devices to work with. What we've got now is a closer look at what those docks are and what they can do. You'll find that each of these docks is very simple and straightforward AND you can get them in any color so long as it's black.

T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II 4G and Accessory Dock Hands-on

T-Mobile was also at the Galaxy S II party today, they didn't wanna miss out on the dual-core fun and they had their own beautiful phone to show the world. I personally like the T-Mobile SGSII the most with the slightly rounded edges, it just has a great design in my opinion. It was announced by T-Mobile right as the event was starting to day in NYC and you can read all about that here.

Samsung Galaxy S II Official for AT&T with 4.3″ AMOLED Display Coming in September

The details just coming in over the past few minutes but just as we guessed Samsung has announced the Galaxy S II for all three major carriers in the US with the exception for Verizon. We have some press photos for everyone to enjoy and as soon as we get some hands-on time with the real devices we will be sure to update. Sadly the AT&T version will be coming to market with the same 4.3" display we've seen on current models.

Samsung Galaxy S II Gets Official on T-Mobile this Fall

The long wait is finally over and today at the event in NYC Samsung is just about set to start announcing what we have all been waiting for. The Samsung Galaxy S II here in the US. T-Mobile has quickly jumped out and has just pinged us to inform everyone and our readers that they will be carrying the Galaxy S II. We aren't sure if this is the rumored Hercules or not but either way it's good news.
