Samsung

Bored now.

There's a sentiment running through the technology community that, following the iPhone 5 event, Apple has become boring. That the iPhone looks pretty much the same this year as it did last. Of course, this meme is unburied, reanimated, and set to lurch following every new device announcement. Never mind that the iPhone 5 has been completely rebuilt at almost the atomic level, it's still a rounded rectangle. Apple's not designing by dice roll. They're relentlessly working towards something they've had in mind since 2005. Something inevitable. Something unmolested by the whims, vagaries, and expectations of kitsch and chaos. But before anyone utters "bored now"...

Apple's more organized than Samsung

The above image shows an SSID some poor, frustrated member of the press used to express his or her frustration at trying to cover Samsung's Android and Windows Phone event live today at IFA 2012.

Clearly, if there's one thing Samsung isn't copying from Apple it's how to give a keynote. At the Galaxy S3 event, a female Samsung executive did the PR equivalent of spit take after hearing Samsung's new, tinkle-like audio tone, presumable for the first time.

At Unpacked today, Twitter seems to be of the collective opinion a male Samsung executive actually uttered an expletive on stage -- "We heard a lot of [beep] about sharing tonight."

It's a pity because some of the devices Samsung showed off look interesting, if not a little familiar...

Xperia, Galaxy Note, Ativ-S, Galaxy Camera: New Sony, Samsung phones come out to play at IFA 2012

Our Mobile Nations sibling sites, Android Central, and WPCentral are live at IFA 2012 in Berlin, Germany, and since Apple doesn't attend any shows but their own -- expected on September, 12, of course -- that leaves the stage wide open to companies like Sony and Samsung to show off new Xperia T, Galaxy Note 2, Ativ-S, and other devices. Here's what we've seen so far...

Samsung executive says $1 billion verdict was the worst case scenario, Google says it was more Samsung than Android

In the matter of Apple's $1 billion verdict over Samsung, we've already had two separate, yet equally important PR statements. Since then, a Samsung executive has said it's their worst case scenario, and Google, not surprisingly, has tried to keep Android well away from the fallout.

Samsung opens its flagship electronics store in Sydney Australia, claims it didn’t copy the Apple Store design

Samsung, who is currently locking horns with Apple over various infringements with regard to cell phone and tablet patents, has just opened another retail store. This store is just a block away from Apple’s own store in Sydney, Australia and what’s more if you walked in without noticing the missing Apple logo outside, you may think you had walked into an Apple Store.

Samsung has released a new iPad-sized tablet and, of course, our Mobile Nations sibling site Android Central has a complete Galaxy Tab 10.1 review ready and waiting for you.

Where's the Samsung shaped dent in the universe?

I'm going to zag instead of zig here and do something different for this week's editor's desk column. Instead of several topics I'm going to focus on one. I'm going to put words to something that's been nagging at me for weeks, months, and years. And I'm all out of mincing and sugar coating...

Samsung opens first North American Apple Store -- er, Samsung Store

Samsung has just opened the doors at its first retail store in North America and we'll give you one guess as to where the design inspiration came from. The store, which has just opened at Burnaby’s Metropolis at Metrotown, Vancouver looks awfully similar to any Apple Store you can walk into today. Minimalistic, open floorsplan, product demonstration benches, large screen TV’s demonstrating products and software. The technical staff are even wearing blue t-shirts similar to Apple’s genius bar staff.
