Apple jabs new Samsung Tab in Germany

Apple jabs new Samsung Tab in Germany

Posted on Apr 23, 2012 by MG3

It appears that Apple is not satisfied with the changes Samsung has made to its Galaxy Tab line over in Germany this month as the Galaxy Tab 10.1N, modified from the 10.1 with no N, still infringes on the iPad’s form and purpose – so they say. This same claim for the original Galaxy Tab has already taken hold in some other parts of the world and Apple has indeed succeeding in banning the 10.1 version of Samsung’s tablet line for brief periods of time in the past – this time though, it’s after Samsung took steps to avoid such a suit specifically. Will the Tab 10.1N, with its front-facing speakers and all, be able to avoid the Apple hammer in Deutschland?

Samsung reportedly halts Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) production to add quad-core CPU

Samsung reportedly halts Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) production to add quad-core CPU

Posted on Apr 19, 2012 by MG1

When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, it wasn’t the high-definition tablet we’re still waiting for the manufacturer to announce. In fact, it was nearly identical to the original Galaxy Tab 10.1, but that may change ahead of the tablet’s launch. NetBookNews on Wednesday cited a Korean Samsung insider who claims the company has halted production of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 so that it can be upgraded with a quad-core processor. Pre-sales were originally scheduled for May 4th and the device was supposed to launch on May 13th for $399.99, but it is unclear if these dates will be pushed back. Earlier reports suggested the Galaxy Note 10.1 has also been del...

Posted on Apr 10, 2012 by MG1

Well, what do you know: only a day after the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) price was revealed by accident, we now have an idea as to how much the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) will cost. The 7-inch Galaxy Tab 2 tablet is currently listed on the QVC web store and is priced at $309.96. The model in question is the most basic one with 8 gigabytes of storage and no cellular connectivity.

Reporter gets to tour Foxconn's iPad plant and has the video to prove it

Posted on Apr 10, 2012 by MG1

Rob Schmitz is the chief of American Public Media’s Marketplace China bureau and he recently got in the limelight by taking a big part in exposing the lies of Mike Dorsay in its “Agony and ecstasy of Steve Jobs.” He appeared on This American Life, and his involvement got him direct and very rare access inside Apple’s Foxconn factories.
Schmitz is preparing a bigger piece about the conditions of workers he saw and while generally he describes their job as very mundane and talks about some issues with supervisors, he reassures us that the Foxconn factory looks more like a college campus rather than a slave camp.

Google Nexus Tablet expected in July

Posted on Apr 09, 2012 by MG1

Filed in: TabletsGoogle

We’ve been hearing loud rumblings that a Google Nexus tablet would be landing soon and that Google would be offering this and other Android tablets directly to consumers through an online store. Well, the folks at The Verge are reporting that we shouldn’t expect Google’s tablet until July at the earliest.
While it’s tough to really call this a “delay” because the device has never been officially announced, The Verge said that Google originally wanted the tablet out in May. The report suggests that Google is pushing it back in order to get it out at a lower price.
