Every year around this time we prepare ourselves for the exciting release of Samsung’s next Galaxy flagship.

From the looks of the cases, the Galaxy S III will adopt the boxier design language seen in the original Galaxy S II, which is achieved with more tightly radiused corners and a return to parallel sides.  The location...

For 3 years straight–like clockwork–Samsung has released the gold standard by which all Android phones are built. This year they look to extend that record to the 4th year with the Galaxy S IV. The performance and displays of each successive generation has increase, from the single core, 4-inch Galaxy S, to the quad-core, 4.8 inch Galaxy S III, Samsung has repeatedly upped the bar and this year is no different.

Samsung has been getting better and better about firmware update with each generation of hardware, and we’re pleased to announce that both the 7 and 10.1 inch versions of the Galaxy Tab 2 are being updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
