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 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.
It's only been a few days since we heard official word from Sprint and Samsung when customers would be able to get their hands on the newest 4G capable device coming to market. You should have already got your reserve down, or even your pre-order, with a release date of August 31st set in stone for Sprint. And considering that's right around the corner, we figured you'd want a review of the device, so you could decide whether or not to pick it up come the end of the month.
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.
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.
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.
There were some grumblings that the Galaxy Tab from Samsung, the Galaxy S-based tablet, would be unveiled some time this week, but apparently that's not the case anymore. Samsung Hub has heard that the device will actually be shown off next month, in September, at this year's IFA.
It may not be the easiest way to get a device, but it may be one of the funnest. Like most of Sprint's high-profile handset releases, they're doing what they can to make sure that a few lucky folks out there in Sprintland get their very own, without doing much at all in the way of work, or, paying. This time around they're working with Warner Brothers Entertainment, and they're handing out 10 Samsung Epic 4Gs.
Thanks to a trusted tipster to Boy Genius Report, it looks like we may finally have a release date for the Samsung Epic 4G. That may sound familiar: it's the Samsung Galaxy S variant that's heading to Sprint. Though, the Epic is definitely the more diverse of the Galaxy S devices out there, and probably most noteworthy is the fact that it's going to have that 4G connectivity that Sprint talks so highly about.
No surprises here, folks. Though, it is a bit strange to see that the Captivate and Vibrant are the options being sent up to the Great North, and not the international version of the Galaxy S. It must have something to do with the 3G bands, and how they don't have to work too hard to make them work on the Northern wireless carriers. In any event, both the Vibrant and Captivate are making their way up to Canada -- this month.
