Another year, another Galaxy device. Since the release of the original Galaxy S in 2010, Samsung has been routinely refining their flagship formula through hardware upgrades, software polish and no shortage of gimmicks. We typically see larger displays, more cores, bigger megapixel counts, larger batteries and interesting new additions with every release. As you'd expect, 2014’s Galaxy S5 does little to break away from this formula.
As we move closer to the end of the year everyone’s moving to refresh their lineups in preparation for the lucrative holiday season. Apple just announced a new iPad Air and iPad mini Retina, Microsoft pushed out the second generation Surfaces, Amazon Kindles hedged its bets on high-end hardware and real-time support, Samsung did its own thing with numerous Android devices, and Google is set to refresh the Nexus line later this month.
Taylor Wireless via eBay offers the Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S III 16GB Android Smartphone in White, model no. GT-I9300, for $379.99 with free shipping. That's tied with our mention of this phone in another color from last month and the lowest total price we could find by $80.
It's good to be king, especially when Samsung knows that it reached the top position after some early missteps. Now comes the hard part -- staying on top. If the Galaxy S III was Samsung's crowning achievement, the Galaxy S 4 is the first defense of the throne.
Arriving on the heels of one rival's flagship and a few months before the expected unveiling of another's, the Galaxy S 4 will prove whether Samsung is continuing its trend of advancement or becoming just as predictable as the old guard that it mocked. So naturally we must ask: just how good is the Samsung Galaxy S 4?
Sony Store offers the 3.8lb VAIO T-Series LED-backlit touchscreen ulrabook in silver, model no. SVT131190X, for $739.99. Coupon code "SONYTX13" drops it to $699.99. With free shipping, that's $69 less than the lowest total price we could find for a comparable T-series ultrabook elsewhere...
Samsung launched its new Galaxy S III smartphone with great fanfare today in London. The Galaxy S III sports a new, 4.8-inch Super AMOLED 720p display, but thanks to Samsung's judicious trimming of the bezel surrounding the screen, the phone isn't much wider than last year's Galaxy S II with its 4.3-inch display.
It's no secret that tablet makers are having a hard time competing with Apple in this still nascent market. In fact, the iPad is selling so well that it surpassed the number of PCs shipped by any individual PC manufacturer over the last quarter of 2011.
