Samsung is launching two new phones with U.S. Cellular dubbed the Samsung Trill and Samsung Caliber. The Trill reminds us of the Samsung Trance due to the similar design and features. It has sound technology by Bang & Olufsen ICEpower, a music player with an external music player control, a 1.3-megapixel camera, a speakerphone, stereo Bluetooth, support for microSD cards up to 32GB.
The Caliber, on the other hand, is a touch-screen phone complete with Samsung's TouchWiz user interface. It measures 4.55 inches by 2.23 inches by 0.47 inches and has a 3.2-inch … Read more
On Monday, MetroPCS introduced its first Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone, the Samsung Code. Though it's not running the latest Windows Mobile 6.5, the Code does give MetroPCS customers another smartphone choice, which is a bit lacking to say the least (the carrier's only other smartphone is the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8330).
The Code offers the standard WinMo features, including Outlook synchronization and the Microsoft Office Mobile Suite, as well as 3G support, stereo Bluetooth, and a 2-megapixel camera. It also has a full QWERTY keyboard, up to 32GB expandable memory, and an optional WizPro interface, which … Read more

Samsung announced on Wednesday that on-demand video services from Blockbuster and Amazon are coming to some of its home entertainment products.
Blockbuster OnDemand, which allows people to rent or purchase video content on a one-off basis, is now available on some of Samsung's high-definition TVs, Blu-ray players, and home theater systems.
According to Samsung, the service will be offered on its Series 650 and above LCD and plasma HDTVs, as well as its Series 7000 and above LED HDTVs. Blockbuster OnDemand will be available to owners of the Samsung BD-P1600, BD-P3600, and BD-P4600 Blu-ray players, as well as the … Read more
Looking more like a remote control for the Batmobile than a voice recorder, the aluminum-clad Samsung YP-VX1 is way too sexy to record your memoir, much less a grocery list.
Announced today along with a handful of other Samsung portable audio gadgets we may never see in the U.S., the details surrounding VX1 are pretty scarce. There's no word on pricing or capacity, but this little beauty does offer MP3 playback with ID3 support, along with Samsung's DNSe sound enhancement technology.
But if you're feeling strangely compelled to buy a dedicated voice recorder, don't get … Read more
The solar-powered Samsung Blue Earth handheld was finally released to the public today--in Sweden, at least. The touch-screen phone with the solar charger on the back is also set to launch in other countries soon; they are France, Germany, Austria, Italy, and Portugal, just to name a few.
We first saw this eco-friendly phone at GSMA 2009 and then our colleagues over at CNET Asia finally got their hands on it at CommunicAsia 2009. We're actually getting a review unit of this phone for ourselves soon, so we'll let you know if it truly does live up to … Read more
Sorry I missed this in the aftermath of CTIA, but Samsung on Friday announced the latest incarnation of its Armani-branded phone. This newest handset sports a QWERTY keybaord and a design that's vaguely reminiscent of the HTC Tilt 2. The exterior is attractive, particularly the bronze and brown color scheme.
Features on the Windows Mobile 6.5 phone include a 5-megapixel camera, e-mail and messaging, Bluetooth, a music player, a personal organizer, a speakerphone, voice dialing, 8GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, a video player, GPS, and an FM radio. The Armani is a quad-band (GSM 850/… Read more
The Samsung Omnia 2 was announced for Verizon Wireless back in June, but an official release date and pricing were not disclosed at that time. Unfortunately, CTIA Fall 2009 didn't reveal any new information, but we did finally get some hands-on time with the device.
Both Samsung and Microsoft had the Omnia successor displayed on the show floor, but a Microsoft employee was kind enough to part with his personal GSM version of the Omnia 2 so we could check it out. The smartphone was running Windows Mobile 6.5, but there's some question as to whether the … Read more
