Specs leaked for Samsung Galaxy Q Android smartphone

samsung-q-200

It’s still a rumored device for now, but this Android 2.2 phone sounds like it could seriously be a hot one. For starters, you get a 3.0-inch Super AMOLED multi-touch display to go with the full QWERTY keyboard and optical touchpad. Some people are saying that this lends itself to a slider, but a BlackBerry-esque bar phone could very well be possible too. Remember the Samsung Epix? Maybe like that, but so much newer and nicer.

galaxy-s-sweepstakes

Samsung’s dual screen digital cameras for self-portrait crazed individuals

samsung-ffd-02

Taking self portraits can be hard with regular digital cameras. The preview screen is on the back, while the lens is on the front. We usually end up with the “MySpace angle” for most shots and the framing can end up terrible, but sometimes it’s fun. Samsung “fixed” that with an inevitable change, the addition of the second screen.

Samsung rejects Apple’s claims on the Omnia 2 antenna

Apple's test showing the Samsung Omnia II

Samsung today joined forces with RIM, Nokia and HTC by releasing their own statement towards Apple’s distraction of drawing the competition into their Antennagate problem. Apple’s tests showed the Samsung Omnia II being susceptible to signal loss via the “grip of death.” Samsung took their time in responding, perhaps because Apple uses a good number of memory chips from the company. So Samsung needed to be respectable and remain true to their manufacturing methods, but doing so without losing whiney customer.

T-Mobile Vibrant (Samsung Galaxy S) coming this week

Samsung Vibrant

Looking for a hot new Android phone to go with your T-Mobile service? It has now been confirmed that T-Mo will indeed be launching its new Samsung Vibrant smartphone this Thursday. You might already know it as the Samsung Galaxy S; this is just their variant on the hardware.

This beats AT&T to the punch by a few days, since the Captivate (AT&T’s take on the Galaxy S) won’t be hitting store shelves for a little while after that. It’s also bodes well for T-Mobile that there are shortages of the HTC EVO 4G (Sprint) and the HTC Droid Incredible (Verizon). I hope for T-Mobile’s sake that they have a good supply of these phones ready to go.

First look: Samsung Intercept Android 2.1 phone for Sprint

Samsung Intercept Android 2.1 smartphone for Sprint

You know, I’m starting to get the feeling that Samsung is turning into the next HTC. They release a series of great looking phones, just to be sure of there place in the world, but many of them are starting to look really similar to one another, despite having different product names. The latest in this line is the Samsung Intercept. Affectionately known as the Samsung Moment 2 to those in the know, the Samsung Intercept has been leaked (or “intercepted” if you prefer) and looks pretty good from here. For starters, this handset will reportedly launch with Android 2.1. That’s not quite 2.2 Froyo or 2.3 Gingerbread, but it’s pretty good.

Samsung’s super quick 512GB encrypted SSDs begin production next month

samsung-ssd

If we could only be content with the revolving platters that are host to the gigabytes of precious data we lug around in our laptop’s each day, Samsung wouldn’t need to begin mass production on these new 512GB SSD. Tucked inside are DDR NAND chips which rather than being spun, are toggled. They are also quicker than the 40nm-class of SSDs, but just as power efficient.
