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!

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
