Samsung made a huge impact in the Android community with the Galaxy S Vibrant on T-Mobile, Fascinate on Verizon, Epic on Sprint and Captivate on AT&T. With the Galaxy S success you would think Samsung would feel comfortable laying low for a while and enjoy the success of their Android phones success.
Samsung has decided to fully embrace the Android OS and is getting ready to launch the Galaxy S Tab(let). The release is set to fully take advantage of the 2010 holiday season. The only question that remains is if Samsung is going to be releasing on all the major carriers like the Galaxy S did. Rumor has it thats the Galaxy S tab is going to be released by Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon and we can only hope T-Mobile will jump on board and carry the Tab as well. Specs after the jump. Read more
The CTIA show in Las Vegas this year was a big hit. Many companies went all out to show off their new products to the world. One of those companies pulling out all of the stops was Sprint.
Sprint filled a small room with invited media and our team was able to be there in the front row as Dan Hesse, the CEO of Sprint announced their newest smartphone which also is a 4G device. With a flick of his wrist Mr Hesse lifted the black sheet covering the HTC EVO. Sharing the spotlight with Mr. Hesse was the CEO of HTC Peter Chou. (both pictured above)
Sprint put a lot of time and effort into this event as they didnt just announce the device they also let us play with it. We also enjoyed a live demo of the HTC EVO by Senior Vice President of Product and Technology Development Kevin Packingham and the Vice President of Product and Technology Development Fared Adib. During this demonstration we were able to witness many features the HTC EVO will sport such as high quality video streaming of HD YouTube videos, pinch-to-zoom display, a 4.3 inch high resolution screen, Google Goggles, and the amazing 4G speeds.

Heres some food for thought. AT&T has prided themselves in having the best coverage in the US, leaving their competitors in the dust. After the bashing by Verizon Wireless with their Map For That commercials it just might be AT&T laughing in the end.

Since its first demo at the 2009 CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas, Palms newest and greatest phone made a splash in the cellular phone world, finally, a reasonable competitor to Apples Iphone.
