IFA 2011 – Samsung’s New Line Up
Well, it seems that Samsung has been silent recently for a good reason. They were saving up energy and announcements about upcoming products for the big event. Yup, if you are not following IFA 2011, which is currently taking place in Berlin, you are missing out on quite a few things. Samsung, for instance, held a conference which they entitled “Unpacked”. The conference took place earlier today and Samsung announced their 3 newest products: The Galaxy Note, the Wave 3, and the Galaxy Tab 7.7.
The Wave 3, as you would expect is loaded with Bada OS 2.0 (Samsung’s own OS). This device sports a 4 inch Super AMOLED screen along with a metal uni-body design (think of WP7 devices). This was actually leaked a few days ago in our Bada area, but it is still nice to see it as an official thing. Certainly a prime target for devs working on the BadaOS, porting, etc. As for the other two devices, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is as you would imagine a smaller sized tab than its bigger brother the 10.1. Samsung claims that it is the thinnest, Super AMOLED sporting, device in the market. And finally, the Galaxy Note is a much larger smartphone (to the tune of a 5.3 inch screen) also sporting a Super AMOLED, along with a 1.4 GHz processor, a far beefier battery, and last but not least, a stylus. It seems that demand for larger devices is forcing styli to be reborn into this world. Samsung deems this device to be in a “new category” of portable electronics as it fills a gap between 4.3 inch smartphones and 7 in tabs. All in all…. good move Samsung!
The one thing that we are somewhat surprised about is the fact that there was nothing about any new Windows Phone 7 in their line up. But who knows? The show is still in early stages and it is too early to tell. So far, this is what we have collected out of Samsung’s announcement. But stay tuned for more as there are likely going to be more surprises coming out of this one!

Intel showed its face at MWC 2015 to give the world a yearly update on their upcoming line of chipsets for mobile. While last year the company focused on gathering partnerships and strengthening up their services, architectures and production, now they are revamping their Atom line of SoCs for mobile with a new brand name and a distinctive category format much like that of their i3/i5/i7 line of personal computing processors. The new scheme will be naming the chips x3, x5...
