Samsung SH100 digicam uses Galaxy S as remote-control

Samsung has outed a new digital camera, the SH100, that can wirelessly connect to a Galaxy S smartphone and use the handset as a remote viewfinder and shutter release. The Samsung SH100 has integrated WiFi which can be used to directly upload photos and video to Facebook, Picasa, YouTube and other online galleries; however, it can also pair with a Galaxy S, previewing the frame on the smartphone's display, and even allowing control of the 5x optical zoom. Samsung expects the SH100 to go on sale in March, priced at $199.99. [gallery] [via SlashGear]

Samsung Kies Air adds wireless sync & access to Galaxy S

Samsung is rolling out wireless sync for users of its Kies desktop media management app for certain Android smartphones. Kies Air is showing up in the Samsung Apps download store on the Galaxy S, and allows PCs running Kies to access the smartphone over WiFi and view call logs, videos, photos, bookmarks, and IMs, as well as send SMS messages from the computer's browser. Unlike HTC Sense Online, Kies Air only works if all devices are on the same WiFi network, and we're not seeing it show up in the Galaxy Tab apps store, only on the Galaxy S. Still, it's a useful tool if you want to use your full-sized keyboard to punch out messages more quickly, or manage content on the Galaxy S without having to plug in a USB cable. Kies is a free download for PC only. [gallery] [via Samsung Blog]

Samsung Galaxy S2 confirmed for MWC 2011 claim reports

Samsung has apparently confirmed that it will debut the successor to the best-selling Galaxy S at Mobile World Congress in February 2011. According to Korean news site The Chosun Ilbo, Samsung has officially acknowledged that the so-far unnamed smartphone will launch at MWC, though has stopped short of confirming specifications for the handset. However, it's expected to run Android 2.3 Gingerbread and include NFC wireless, as with the Samsung-made Nexus S. Samsung is also expected to slot a dual-core processor into the Galaxy S2, rather than the Galaxy S's single-core 1GHz Hummingbird chip, together with a gyroscope. [via Samsung Hub]

Dell Streak worst product of 2010 claims Walt Mossberg

Bearded uncle of tech, the WSJ's Walt Mossberg, has pushed out his list of the best and worst reviewed products for 2010, and an Android device tops the charts for the most mediocre. According to Mossberg, the Dell Streak is "a tweener" that isn't big enough to be a successful tablet but is too large to be a smartphone. Android did show up in Mossberg's top gadget list, however, with the Samsung Galaxy S tied for third place with the iPhone 4.

Samsung sell 9.3m Galaxy S worldwide; 10m by end of year

Samsung is reportedly claiming to have sold 9.3m units of its Galaxy S smartphone - and variants - worldwide, with the company looking forward to passing the 10m mark before the end of the year. 2m of those sales were in Korea, apparently making the Galaxy S the first smartphone to break that milestone (and beating the iPhone to it too). The Galaxy S helped Samsung grab the number one Android smartphone spot in the last quarter. [via TNW]

White Samsung Galaxy S Arrives in Germany

It's been just over a month since the white Galaxy S from Samsung landed in the United Kingdom, and now it looks like those in Germany who wished hard enough to get their own version can sigh a sigh of relief. Samsung has just revealed that the device has just been launched in that region. It's available from Samsung directly, or you can purchase the device from Amazon Germany, unlocked, and for a cheaper price tag.

Galaxy S will get Android 2.3 Gingerbread confirms Samsung India

Samsung UK weren't confident on Android 2.3 Gingerbread updates for the Galaxy S, but Samsung India aren't so reticent. The country division's Twitter team has been assuring Galaxy S users that their smartphones will indeed get Gingerbread firmware (well, "Gingerbeard" but we're guessing that's a typo). There's no timeline for the firmware's release - it's not even out for the Nexus One yet, and the new Nexus S isn't due until December 16 - but hopefully it'll be faster than Froyo took to arrive.

Samsung coy on Galaxy S Gingerbread update despite apparent hardware compatibility

Samsung is proving cagey on whether the Galaxy S family of smartphones will see an official upgrade to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, blaming system requirements and "the overall effect of such [an] Update to Samsung products" - among other things - for the uncertainty. That's according to a Samsung spokesperson pestered by Pocket-lint, who basically surmised that the possibility of an update was still being decided.
"In case a new version of Android operating system is publicly announced and released, Samsung will review the possibility of implementation of such new version to the existing Samsung products with Android operating system ("Update"). Such a review will be based on various factors including, without limitation, the overall effect of such Update to Samsung products, the system requirements, the structural limitations, and the level of cooperation from the component suppliers and the software licensors" Samsung UK
Meanwhile Google's lead Android developer, Dan Morrill, has confirmed that the hardware requirements of Gingerbread "are similar" to those of Froyo, and that the platform "has never had hard processor" minimum specifications. If Samsung decides not to release Gingerbread for the Galaxy S, it seems like it would be more for reasons of keeping the new Nexus S differentiated rather than for anything technical. [via Engadget]
