First Bada OS smartphone launched with the Samsung Wave

Samsung Wave Bada OS Smartphone

Samsung’s bada OS has finally reached retail and is making its initial debut with the Samsung Wave smartphone, adding another option to the ever-growing list of devices.

The bada OS platform was originally announced back in November of last year, but now we’ve got some actual hardware running it and ready for purchase. The Wave takes Samsung’s lineup beyond Windows Mobile, Android, and even the TouchWiz-equipped feature phones. I think they’ve still got Symbian going on somewhere too.

Boost Mobile slips you the Samsung Rant

samsung-rant-boost

I’m still partial to having a true smartphone these days, but there are many other people who are more interested in cheaper messaging phones with full QWERTY keyboards. If that sounds like you, Boost Mobile has you covered with the Samsung Rant.

If you’re thinking that this phone looks a lot like the Samsung Gravity, you’re not alone. The form factor was unique a few years back, but several other messaging phones have started to take on this style (like the LG Rumor).

New Symbian smartphone to join Samsung lineup after all

samsung.200

Samsung is a huge company and it seems like they’re always looking to diversify. You’ll find the Samsung name on all sorts of consumer electronics, ranging from HDTVs and Blu-ray players to multifunction printers and digital cameras. Even within the cell phone range, they’re being pretty darn diverse.

While Research in Motion sticks to BlackBerry OS and Apple does nothing but iPhone, Samsung is different. Even so, we thought that the Korean giant was done with Symbian. Apparently not.

Just because you want to have the latest in gadgetry doesn’t mean that Mother Nature has to take a backseat. Sprint and Samsung are both dedicated to green leadership. In celebration of Earth Day, the two firms are announcing the Samsung Restore cell phone.

Samsung U290 Reality on Verizon Wireless

You’ve got to love some of the names that they come up with for these Samsung phones. From the Eternity to the Gravity, they all sound like they should be larger than life. Snapping us back down to the Earth is the aptly named Samsung Reality u820.

The Samsung u820 Reality isn’t a smartphone, but it could be called a feature phone or a quick messaging phone. Bound for the shelves of Verizon Wireless, the reality has a big three-inch display and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Samsung Spinpoint 2.5-inch notebook drive reaches 640GB, at 7200RPM too

spinpointmp4.200

Want a bigger hard drive for your laptop, but you don’t want to sacrifice anything in performance? It seems that Samsung is pushing the envelope just a little further with the newly revealed Spinpoint MP4. This 2.5-inch hard drive sounds pretty sweet. For starters, it doesn’t stick to the conventional 5400rpm speed that you normally find in 2.5-inch notebook drives. Instead, it gives you 7200rpm of speed, putting it in line with the 3.5-inchers on the market. That means you’ll get at your data faster and more efficiently.

Samsung smartphones with proprietary OS could be a Bada idea

Samsung Bada Smartphone Roadmap

As if there weren’t enough smartphone platforms already on the market, Samsung wants to move ahead with its new Bada operating system. We’ve already seen one or two phones with this platform, but now the Korean mega-giant is coming forward with several more bada phones.

Based on a presentation slide show, only one of them has a name right now. We had heard about the Samsung Wave with bada OS previously, but now it looks like it’s getting joined by four more Samsung smartphones. A couple of them have slide-out keyboards, whereas the other two appear to be touchscreen-only devices.

We already know about some of those Samsung Corby phones that pop up at local retailers, but it looks like the Korean manufacturer wants to expand that brand in to the realm of netbooks too. Recently unveiled are the new Samsung Corby netbooks and oh boy are they vivid.

If you’re thinking that these netbooks look a little too familiar, you’d be right. That’s because the Samsung Corby netbook is really just a rebadged version of the Samsung N150 netbook that we saw a couple of months ago.

samsung-galaxy-s-features

It looks like the news is coming out fast and furious from CTIA Wireless in Las Vegas. Contending to be one of the hottest new smartphones to hit the limelight – the Samsung Galaxy S is a “super” updated version of the Samsung Galaxy that has already been floating around the market. Samsung is pretty proud of this little phone, especially since there isn’t much that is small about it. For starters, you get a large four-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display, which will rock for web and video since the DivX certification its garnered for HD video playback at 720p resolution.

Telegent mobile TV accompanies Samsung Star TV cell phone

Telegent

I guess you could say that I’m lucky to work from home. The television is never too far away, so I can always hop over to catch a program or two during my self-imposed breaks. That said, it would still be nice to watch TV while on the go and it seems that Telegent has us covered on that front.

Today, Telegent Systems announced that its analog mobile TV receiver will be shipping with the Samsung Star TV S5233T handset.

Rogers slides out Samsung Corby Pro for $70, does multitasking

Samsung Coby Pro

Based on the number of messaging phones that continue to flood the market, there are plenty of people out there who appreciate the inclusion of a hardware QWERTY keyboard, but can’t be bothered with the complexity and price of a true smartphone. Continuing with this trend is the Samsung Corby Pro.

If you didn’t know any better, you’d swear that the new Samsung Corby Pro is a smartphone. But it’s not. It’s just a phone with a touchscreen display and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. What makes it “pro” is still unknown, but it could be the multitasking aspect, call it a slap in the face to Apple but a $70 phone allowing you to run multiple applications has gotta tell you something. If the iPhone 4G does not support multitasking, many iPhone owners may switch to the Corby Pro.. er not.

Samsung eReader with text-to-speech technology unveiled

Samsung eReader

Samsung Electronics of America today unveiled their eReader tablet computer for the US market. With a name far less revolutionary than others, Samsung’s eReader should still give the Kindle a run for its money.

The compact portable Samsung eReader sports a 6-inch e-Ink display capable of 600×800 resolution with 8-gray scale shades. This is a more traditional eBook screen primarly to be used for newspapers, paper back novels, and simple image viewing, unlike Apple’s iPad offering more colorful, rich-media interaction for the end user.
