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!

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
