Samsung’s Press Conference has just resumed, with quite an array of devices, which do include a few Android-related devices. Samsung is working hard on the “Smart” products, allowing all their gadgets to be connected, in order to accomplish a seamless, adaptable, interaction between their products.
After much anticipation, and the Galaxy Tab’s success in 2010, the Samsung Galaxy Tab WiFi-only version has been shortly previewed during this press conference, and Omar Khan from Samsung Mobile, mentions that it will be available for purchase during the first quarter of 2011. Soon after talking about the Galaxy Tab, they treated us with a preview of the Samsung Player, a 4 inch mobile device running Android 2.2 Froyo, with a 800 by 480 pixel resolution.
Samsung representative mentions that Samsung is the #1 Android provider, which of course goes without a doubt, since their Galaxy S phones have proved to be of great success, along with the First Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab, and of course, Google’s new phone, the Nexus S, the first phone to come with Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Samsung seems to be very proud of their work during 2010, but the road surely does not end there. Samsung has also previewed the Samsung Infuse 4G, which is going to be AT&T’s thinnest device, with a stunning 4.5, yes you read that right, 4.5 inch Super AMOLED Display, and 1.2 GHz processor, along with a front facing and back facing camera.
Among the few cameras that Samsung showed during the Press Conference, one of them actually called my attention, upon hearing that it will actually be able to connect to Android phones, allowing mobile devices to work as a remote control for the camera. This camera is the Samsung SH100, and it will sure be a tempting budget breaker for many Android fans out there.
Many other interesting products were mentioned, like “Smart” appliances, The Samsung Netbook Series 9 (which is an amazingly thin computer running Windows 7, made of something that looks like Aluminum, but is actually much stronger), The Samsung Netbook Series 7 (Tablet that slides out a physical keyboard, running Windows 7), 3D TVs, Bluray Players, and Skype camera for Samsung TVs. Samsung’s devices actually look very strong and innovating,and they have definitely worked their way up the past few years.
