Samsung is no stranger to trademark filings. We saw four or so new trademarks for Galaxy devices earlier in the month and apparently they are at again before the month ends, and have just trademarked an additional three names. Samsung releases lots of smartphones in the high end range, and everywhere else. Today they've branded Galaxy Premier, Galaxy Grand, and Galaxy Next to their name.
ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime and a certain group of autonomous robots. Transformers manufacturer Hasbro sure spotted it, and didn't take the unofficial association lightly: they sued ASUS over the name, presumably taking offense at the similarity to Transformers mainstay Optimus Prime and similar fictional characters. The International Business Times reports that a US federal judge ruled that there was no possibility of consumers being confused by the name, and thus denied a sales injunction.
Samsung Galaxy S III. We've still been waiting for something official and have only heard rumors as of late but a recent trademark filing by Samsung might of just gave us all hope. Three trademark filings were just submitted for smartphone names Samsung to the United States Patent and Trademark Office -- I'm already wondering what these are.
SammyHub, Samsung has filed for a trademark on the term "Samsung Galaxy Camera" at the United States Patent and Trademark Office. There's really only one thing to take away from that: Samsung is either considering or already working on an Android-powered camera, at least tangentially related to its current smartphone lineup. Aside from the name filing, there's no technical information to go on.
85480030 reports Fusible. The name will undoubtedly go with a new family of sleek and thin devices.
list of trademarked names that all seemed to be centered around "speed" but the newest few we are now seeing are a bit different.
incoming Android device expected to make its debut at CTIA 2011 next month. Two filings - here and here - lock down the name, though of course don't give us any further details about the device itself. It had been speculated that the EVO View 4G would be a tablet, perhaps even a CDMA version of the HTC Flyer, though there's no specific mention of tablets in the "goods and services" description. However, you could extrapolate from the "portable computers" section, perhaps, so the Flyer may still make a Sprint appearance. Most interesting, though, is the 4G element, with the device certain to have Sprint's WiMAX built in. Considering the HTC EVO 4G is nine months old and still retails for $199.99 with a new agreement, it's about time we had another potential flagship to take its place. [via Good and EVO]
