Samsung trademarks Galaxy Premier, Grand, and Next names

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.

Transformer Prime doesn’t infringe on Hasbro’s trademark, says judge

You'd have to be either really young or really out of touch with pop culture not to spot the similarities in the name of the 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 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]
