We’ve already seen Sony’s Xperia SL in the wild, but today the Japanese manufacturer has finally made the elusive smartphone official. An exact release date isn’t announced, though the device is now listed on the company’s official website as “coming soon”. The Xperia SL serves as an updated version of Sony’s Xperia S handset, but don’t let that designation fool you. The SL packs an array of impressive specs, including a 1.7GHz Snapdragon S3 (MSM8260) processor, 4.3-inch screen with 1280 x 720 display and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. There’s also a front-facing camera for video chat, as well as a 12.1-megapixel rear camera with 16x digital zoom and pulsed LED flash. For those who are concerned with style, Sony has made the Xperia SL available in four unique color variations, including silver, black, pink and white.

Details are still scarce, however, we expect to hear much more about the smartphone at the company’s IFA press conference on Sunday, August 26th. There’s bound to be more devices announced next week, so be sure to stay tuned for the latest news.

Recently the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G became official thanks to a leaked T-Mobile internal training doc. Well, Samsung went ahead and posted somewhat of a 360 degree view of the up-and-coming 4G smartphone. The images don’t yield any real surprises, in fact, the device looks pretty standard at best. Actually, the more I look at it, the more I see a phone that resembles the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G (currently in T-Mobiles lineup). In terms of specs and a release date, we still don’t have anything concrete, but we will let you know as soon as we have more information.

$250 Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Student Edition Bundle Available Today

tagged , , , ,

Samsung is now offering the Student Edition Bundle of the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 for $250 in a handful of stores, including Best Buy, Amazon, Costco, and others. The price is a good deal, saving $100 versus buying all the parts separately.

The bundle will be available from now until September 1st, and it includes an 8GB Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 in limited edition white, a keyboard dock, and a USB adapter that supports plugging in USB thumb drives and other peripherals. Polaris Office will also come pre-installed, which will come in handy for students.

Google’s Nexus 7 is also a great low-cost student option if you don’t need a microSD slot or a rear camera like the Galaxy Tab has. The Galaxy also has an IR blaster, and for only $50 more than the Nexus 7, the Student Bundle is a great choice.

Hit the break for Samsung’s press release.

Could This Galaxy S III Look-a-like be the New Galaxy Media Player?

by Sean Stewart on
tagged , ,

If this isn’t Samsung’s newest Galaxy Media Player then honestly, we don’t know what it is. It looks as if it’s sharing the bezel and overall design of the Galaxy S III while also sharing most of the same widgets and applications. The new media player will rock an eye-popping 5.8 inch screen – a full inch larger than the Galaxy S III (measured diagonally).  However, it will sport only a qHD (960 x 540) TFT LCD display, so images won’t appear as crisp as on the Galaxy S III. As far as muscle, we’re looking at a 1GHz dual-core processor, which is plenty for most people, especially when compared to other competition out there.

One feature of note is the stereo speakers found on the player which will make it more usable in noisier environments.  Other disappointments include the fairly lackluster 3.0 megapixel camera and the fact that it comes with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.  However, this shouldn’t hinder most buyers who are in the market for such a device.  Unlike the Galaxy S III, this new Galaxy media player will in fact come in black from the onset rather than waiting a few months after launch.  The player hasn’t been officially announced yet so obviously launch specifics aren’t known at this time.
