Galaxy Tab 11.6 Outed On Samsung’s Own Site?

We already know Samsung announced Angry Birds Space and not the Galaxy Tab 11.6 at SXSW. So where is this mystery tablet? Apparently, it’s hiding right on Samsung’s own site. Or at least something that looks like it could be an 11.6-inch Galaxy Tab. The image appears inside a PDF document on a page about the Exynos 5250 processor, which is the same 2 GHz Exynos 5250 that is rumored to be powering an upcoming Galaxy Tab.

This tablet looks similar to the recently announced Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, with some minor tweaks. Of course, this image could simply be a generic prototype or mockup used for the Exynos brochure. You be the judge. Full high resolution image after the break.

The 13-Inch Toshiba AT330 Compared to Normal Size Tablets

Yesterday we showed you the humongus 13-inch AT330 tablet from Toshiba. At that time we got a glimpse at what this monster of a slate looks like in all of its TV tuning glory but it was pretty hard to tell exactly how large the tablet really is. Techblog.gr, the folks who brought us the original image, has provided us with some new images comparing the AT330 next to the Excite 10 LTE and AT270. We can now get a better perspective as to how big this tab is in comparrison to the 10 and 7-inch tablets we all have grown accustom to.

So now that you’ve seen it next to a tablet with a familiar size what do you think? Too big? You mean to tell me bigger isn’t actually always better better? :-P

Labs features on way to Google Play Music


Google Play Music has come a long way since it originally hit the market as Google Music beta and if the Google Operating System website is anything to go by, it could be about to get even better. The sneaky snoops managed to unearth the Google Play Music source code and the bounty within gives a few clues towards some forthcoming features. The most interesting discovery was a ‘Music Labs’ page and if you know your Google, you’ll know that Labs is used as a testing ground for experimental features and works in progress that may or may not make the final product.

Some of the new features we can expect to see include a browser based music uploader which would likely replace the desktop application. There’s also a new history section which is likely to show you play counts and other trends. It also looks like there will be different visuals available, perhaps allowing you to skin the music player to your taste.

There’s no timeline on when we could expect to see these new features and in typical Labs fashion we may not even see some of them at all, but we can be certain to see the evolution of Google Music as the year rolls on.

Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE review

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 was announced last September and has been available overseas for quite a few months. It finally made it’s way to the U.S. as the latest 4G LTE tablet on Verizon Wireless. There’s certainly no shortage of tablets available, but if your next tablet purchase has to have LTE connectivity, your choices are more limited. If you’re looking for a mid-sized tablet with solid LTE coverage, you really only have two choices; this one or the DROID XYBOARD 8.2. This is my full review, but you can also check out my initial hands on as well.

Will Samsung Unveil the Galaxy S III at March 30th Phones 4U Event? Probably Not

Well what have we here? It looks like Samsung has a some sort of event planned next week at the flagship Phones 4U store in London. Pictures taken by a passerby show that something is going to happen on the 30th of March but other than that it’s a complete mystery. Could this be a sign that the Galaxy S III is merely only a week away? Or is it something else? The store in which this display is located is actually the flagship shop in which Samsung chose to exclusively sell the Galaxy Nexus at launch… Coincidence? It seems rather unlikely for the retailer to make such a big fuss and include a date if it was only going to be an announcement of some kind but it surely isn’t the GSIII is it? Thankfully it’s only a wait of seven days before we know exactly what the heck is going on.

What are your thoughts? Do you think it’s time for the GSIII to see the light of day, or is it too soon? Let us know in the comments below and as always, we will fill you in if we learn anything new.

Orange UK Confirms Samsung Galaxy S II Will Get In April

 

Well we know that ICS for the UK versions of Samsung Galaxy S II devices are on the way, but aside from Three UK pushing the update out officially— we hadn’t heard too much detail from mobile carriers highlighting when owners of the device would get the update. Mobile carrier Orange UK has finally come out and confirmed the update will arrive on devices in April, though it stopped short of indicating when exactly it will arrive. That means owners of the smartphone won’t know if they’ll get new features such as Facial Unlock until next week at the earliest, though it could be as late as the end of next month.

It could be worse for you Orange UK subscribers— other carriers such as T-Mobile UK and Vodafone hasn’t even specified to its customers when the updates will arrive on their devices. Here’s hoping you all on Orange UK will get the update (much) sooner than later.
