Android Central Live coming to Samsung Developers Conference next week

iMore's sibling site, Android Central will be doing Android Central Live at next week's Samsung Developer Conference. That's right, Samsung is holding their own dev event, and AC is their official community partner. What can you expect from their amped up coverage? Pretty much what Mobile Nations did for BlackBerry with CrackBerry Live last spring. That means live interviews, show coverage, podcasts, and more, all hosted by our very own Phil Nickinson.

Samsung fails to stop import ban on older devices

Samsung has failed to win a presidential veto of an International Trade Commission (ITC) ruling against some older Android devices, according to Android Central. The ban shouldn't have too much material effect on Samsung, however - it only covers older devices.

Samsung Galaxy Gear ad doesn't copy Apple in any way that matters

Samsung has been airing a new Galaxy Gear ad that's structurally similar to the original iPhone ad Apple aired back in 2007. That's brought up the usual copy cat charges but former Apple evangelist Matt Drance points us the resemblance isn't any more that skin deep. From Apple Outsider:

Apple iPhone 5s vs. Samsung Galaxy S4: Which phone should you get?

The biggest competition in mobile right now is Apple and Samsung, and the biggest rivalry, iPhone 5s vs. Galaxy S4. Both are enormously popular, but both are incredibly different. Integrated vs. licensed, small screen vs. big screen, design-centric vs. spec-centric, and the list goes on and on. Which one is best is a matter of endless debate, but the more important question is - which one is best for you?

Of course Samsung is releasing a gold Galaxy S4

Less than a week after the iPhone 5s went on sale in gold, Samsung is now proudly showing off its latest creation; a gold Galaxy S4. We're not here to claim Apple was first with a gold phone, because obviously that's not true, but given all the 'copying' talk in recent months and years, it's almost predictable.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 vs. Apple Find my Friends: Which faux stitched leather do you hate the least?

Design trends come and go but faux stitched leather is eternal. Witness: just as Apple has bid a not-so-fond farewell to the rich textures of Calendar and Find my Friends, Samsung has embraced new Corinthian comforts for the Galaxy Note 3. The former, software wiped clean in the name of digital authenticity trends towards the future, the latter, hardware meant to evoke the premium feel-ish-ness of BlackBerry Bolds and supply store notebooks past. Does one still work where the other has faltered? Should both be buried, the earth above them salted? Should both still be rocked, shame never being a good thing to have?

Samsung Galaxy Gear shows what Apple won't do with the iWatch

Samsung has launched their pre-emptive strike against Apple's widely anticipated iWatch, and it's the Galaxy Gear. Not surprisingly, it seems like what many pre-Apple products seem like - the HP Slate held up by Steve Ballmer at CES 2010. That's potentially neither good or bad, but it's another reminder about just how Apple really does tend to think differently. My guess is the iWatch will be to the common perception of a watch what the iPhone was to the old corded handset. But we'll see. Meanwhile, Alex Doby from Android Central has a complete Samsung Galaxy Gear hands-on locked and loaded:

Samsung picks up the faux stitched leather and slaps it on the back of the Galaxy Note 3

Just as Apple finished tearing down - and making fun - of the stitched leather in iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks, tenuous partner and heated rival Samsung has picked it up and slapped it on the back of their new Galaxy Note 4 phablet. I kid. A little It's massive, otherwise almost majestic 5.7 inch device, and Phil Nickinson has a complete Galaxy Note 3 hands-on up already:
