Samsung files trademarks for the Galaxy Stellar, Emerge and Halo names

I don't know about you guys, but I'm ready to see the 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.

Samsung trademarks four new Galaxy smartphone names

Ready to see yet another arm of Samsung's Galaxy? Apparently running low on letters, the South Korean manufacturer has trademarked a new series of product names, none of which we've seen before and all starting with their ever-present Galaxy moniker. The Galaxy Awaken, Galaxy Axiom, Galaxy Heir and Galaxy Rite are all on the books at the United States Patent and Trademark Office. That's a pretty good indication (but not a certainty) that we'll be seeing them pop up in the United States in the next few months.

Samsung trademark points to Android-powered Galaxy Camera

And you thought Samsung's Galaxy branding couldn't get more ubiquitous. According to 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.

Samsung Galaxy Sleek trademark app filed

Samsung has field for a new patent app that is grabbing for the name Samsung Galaxy Sleek. With the Galaxy Nexus set to launch in the next few weeks the Sleek may be the name of the follow up devices. The trademark app for the Sleek moniker is number 85480030 reports Fusible. The name will undoubtedly go with a new family of sleek and thin devices.

Verizon Wireless Trademarks “Hologram”

Verizon went ahead and registered the name "Hologram" for a future potential device, but what will it shape up to be? Given the futuristic name, it could represent a device with some new technologies we haven't seen yet - or simply another stereoscopic phone with dual cameras. I don't know about you, but when I think of hologram, I visualize the streamed holographic recordings R2D2 presented in Star Wars.

HTC Trademarks Several New Names, Has the Need for Speed

Here come the leaks boys and girls. HTC has just filed for trademarks on five, count 'em FIVE, new phone names. This is the first we've heard of the Cheetah, Raider, Titan, Skyrocket, or Velo, so we don't have much to go by. With names like that though, I'd bet "fast" may be in HTC's marketing future.

HTC EVO View 4G trademark filed for tipped CTIA 2011 debut

HTC has applied for "HTC EVO View 4G" trademark, seemingly confirming the 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]

HTC Sensation trademark triggers tablet Sense speculation

HTC has trademarked "HTC Sensation" in the EU, leading to speculation that the company plans to develop a new version of its HTC Sense interface. One suggestion is that HTC intends to use "Sensation" on its upcoming tablet models; three HTC tablets are expected to debut in the first half of 2011, including the HTC Flyer.
"user interface software; computer hardware and software for user interfacing, telecommunications and telecommunications services; computer hardware and software for transmitting and receiving voice, image, data, audio, video and multimedia content" Partial trademark description
However, the broad description of the "HTC Sensation" trademark - which includes user interface software, computer hardware and software for voice calls, video calls and more, and even accessories - could suggest that this is more a marketing phrase than a specific development for HTC products. HTC could be looking to brand the "HTC Sensation" of using one of the company's devices. [via GottaBeMobile]

Android Trademark Lawsuit Settled, Google Wins

All the way back in May of 2009 we heard of Erich Spech suing Google and every company that uses the Android OS for infringing use of the name "Android." He was the owner of the trademark for Android Data Corporation, which unfortunately went under in 2002. When Google wanted to trademark the name, they were denied because it had already been taken.
