Want to get a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 in Germany? Good luck, as Samsung’s most recent attempts to overturn the ruling that banned the 10.1 have failed. So why did Germany ban the 10.1 in the first place?

Ice Cream Sandwich May Arrive On Samsung Galaxy Tab, Galaxy S

Presumaby, the same issue must be affecting the port of Ice Cream Sandwich to the original 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab. That shipped with Android 2.2 Froyo last year. The assumption is the elimination (or shrinkage) of TouchWiz would enable ICS to get onto both devices a little more easiliy. Samsung isn’t guaranteeing an ICS port to the SGS and Gtab, so you might have more luck waiting for an unofficial port via the folks at XDA or elsewhere on the web.

Guide to DIY USB Host on Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Using a dock connector form Kineteka, a couple of 10k ohm resistors, one donor USB extender cable, and some cable cleanup stuff like heat shrink and tape, you can make your own USB host for your Galaxy Tab 10.1. You’ll need to do some chopping, splitting of wires, and soldering of resistors, so while it’s not the most complex of hacks, it’s not a plug and play affair either.

Samsung unveils LTE versions of GALAXY S II and GALAXY Tab 8.9

Samsung has unveiled LTE (Long-Term Evolution) versions of its GALAXY S II smartphone and GALAXY Tab 8.9. Displayed at this week’s IFA 2011, the devices will have access to 4G download speeds of up to 100Mbps. If you can get yourself onto a 4G network, the (theoretical) upload speed is 50Mbps and double that when downloading. Samsung equates this to downloading a four-minute MP3 track in 0.3 seconds.

Galaxy Tab 10.1 banned from the EU

German courts have ruled in Apple’s favour in the California company’s latest lawsuit against Samsung. The ruling states that no Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets will be sold in the European Union (Netherlands excluded) due to alleged infringement of both patents and style. Any store who infringes on the ban and continues to sell the device will face either $350,000 fines or imprisonment of management.

Australian lawsuit leads to Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 being pulled from store shelves

Can’t we all just get along? The legal battle between Seoul and Cupertino is continuing to heat up, this time taking the combat down under. Because of the current patent dispute launched by Apple, Samsung has agreed to halt sales of its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in Australia until further notice. After going through a hearing in an Australian federal court, Samsung agreed to stop advertising the Android tablet and it will not sell the device until it gets a go-ahead from the courts that the disputes have been resolved. So, Samsung is the loser here, right?

iPad 2 vs. Motorola Xoom vs. Galaxy Tab In A Drop Test

The guys at Square Trade have thought to drop test different tablets to see how well they fare. They started out the test series with an iPad 2 covered in a Smart Cover and a bare iPad 2. The tablet wearing the Smart-Cover survived the drop and its display remained intact. Unfortunately, the other iPad 2 which did not have the cover on did not do very well in the test, to say the least.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Android 2.2 Tablet Review

When the iPhone arrived on the scene it quickly rose to dominate the smartphone world. Then, Android came along and it has steadily increased its market share until it was king of the hill. In much the same way, the iPad is currently dominating the tablet world, but Android tablets are rising to the forefront too. The Samsung Galaxy Tab is a prime example of that.

We don’t have a price, but we can assume it will be roughly $50 less than the $400 Sprint 3G Galaxy Tab. Still stuck on Android 2.2, packing 16GB of memory and that front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera Apple loves to hear about. Availability is expected in Q1 of 2011.
