The Samsung Galaxy S variant for T-Mobile, the Vibrant, is known to have some issues with its GPS. In fact, it's not the only US-based Galaxy S with the problem. Luckily though, Samsung has admitted to the situation, and have been diligent about getting a fix out the door to alleviate the problem. They've even gone as far as to issue a statement about it, and have promised a software fix by the early weeks of September.
The Samsung Galaxy U may not have been the cream of the crop at all, or ever, but it's certainly worthy of its own praise. Just uncovered over at Samsung Hub, the specifications for the upcoming Galaxy U have been unveiled. And while it may not be as impressive as its S-branded sibling, it's still worthy of the Android platform that it carries.
The Samsung Galaxy S variant for T-Mobile, known as the Vibrant, has just taken a drastic price cut. In a move that's become somewhat normal from the magenta carrier, one of their high-profile devices will go on sale for one day only. Whether this is to stimulate some sales that have slumped off since its launch, or T-Mobile's just being nice, no one knows. Either way, though, you get a killer deal on an amazing device.
The Personal Media Player from Samsung, better known as the YP-MB2, still exists. It's not just some cruel joke that Samsung is playing on all of us. And just to make sure that we all know that, it's lined itself up for some more photos. It's still looking just as good as ever, especially with that 4-inch Super AMOLED display. We're beyond excited for the iPod Touch competitor, and we wish we were one of the lucky individuals overseas that reportedly has the device in hand.
There's no question that the Galaxy S devices out there in the wild have a GPS situation going on right now. Plenty of folks keep telling us about it, after all. And while it's all well and good for us, and the owners, to know that there's a problem, there's a certain amount of satisfaction that comes from the manufacturing company announcing that they know it exists, and are hard at work on fixing it. That's what Samsung have just announced, thankfully.
After plenty of speculation, and plenty of rumors swirled around, it turns out that that August 11th rumor was actually accurate. And, we were cutting it pretty close, at least on the West coat. (It is technically the 12th over there on the right side of the US, after all.) But, sure enough, Samsung have officially announced the Samsung Epic 4G's availability date, and have gone ahead and done one better: told us the price, too.
When the Samsung Epic 4G was announced, despite the fact it had plenty of the same features seen on other Samsung Galaxy S devices, one of the stand-out features was that ability to connect to Sprint's 4G WiMAX network. Sure, the EVO 4G was the first device to do it, but it couldn't stay in the limelight forever. Now that the Epic 4G is close to a release date (we assume), here's Sprint to show you why you'd want to take a look at the Epic, versus the EVO.
When it comes to processors in our high-end Android devices, the benchmark at this point is that 1GHz point. It wasn't too long ago that that that speed was something of a novelty, something to be stared at due to its rarity. Obviously that isn't the case anymore. And one of the best parts of having a fast phone, is making it even faster. That's why it'll be good news to hear that the Captivate, the Samsung Galaxy S variant for AT&T has been overclocked to 1.2GHz.
We all know that the Motorola Droid 2 is launching on August 12th. Pre-orders start tomorrow, folks. And, we all know that Android 2.2 is coming pre-installed on the device, as it's one of the main selling points of the upgraded Droid model. And with Froyo, also comes Flash Player. While there's been a huge furor over whether or not it even works on the device, as many original Droid owners are having a heck of a time with their own upgrade to Froyo and utilizing the software, it looks like Adobe themselves wanted to calm folks down. So, here's a video.
We're not sure when it happened, but some how the Samsung Epic 4G has managed to gotten itself caught up in some wild accusations regarding its release date. For the most part, and especially compared to other devices, the rumor mill consisting of the banter about its suspected release date has been pretty quiet. But, as we inch closer to that August 11th announcement date (without so much of a peep from the third largest wireless carrier in the States), we're beginning to assume that maybe that date isn't right.
