28 Diciembre 12 Multi-window update comes to AT&T Galaxy Note II starting today



5:35 PM

A (T) has announced that a software update will begin rolling out to its Galaxy Note II beginning December 27th. The arrival of the new software makes A the last of the four major nationwide wireless carriers to bring multi-windows support to its Samsung (005930) “phablet,” a feature that allows users to open and operate several different apps at once. “ATT plans to begin rolling out a software update for Samsung Galaxy Note II customers that includes the Multi-Window feature, which allows the user to divide the screen into two active ‘windows’ creating a split screen that enables fluid multitasking between applications,” ATT said in a statement. “The update will be available for download over the air beginning Dec. 27." BGR reviewed the Galaxy Note II in October and called it the best supersized smartphone on the market.

26 Diciembre 12 Galaxy S3 Does Everything Better Except Stay Out Of Toilet; A&T Saves The Day


ATT has always been high on my list of companies that offer good customer service. I have never had a problem with them, and they’ve always been more than reasonable with me. They’ve given me credits for both deserved, and probably undeserved issues, they’ve been quite helpful throughout the years, and I’ve always had good phone service whatnot. Tan, I’ve never had many complaints with them (other than the fact that they no longer offer an unlimited data plan).

I fell in love with my new phone right away. I couldn’t put it down. I spent hours every day customizing it, playing with all the new, awesome features, etc.

Entonces, after about 7 days of my torrid affair with the Galaxy S3, it came to a screeching halt, when my phone (which was nestled safely in my robe pocket… or so I thought), came flying out of that pocket as if it had grown some kind of consciousness, and landed itself right in the toilet (a very *clean* toilet, I might add… for the record). Larga historia corta, I immediately disassembled the phone, and my boyfriend used the vacuum trick to such all the water out of every port. Shockingly, EVERYTHING works on the phone… except the touch screen. Por lo general,, you’re lucky to have anything work at all, or to have a screen that doesn’t flash technicolored reminders of your clumsiness at a constant rate.

Nope… the phone’s screen is just as gorgeous as day one, the buttons work, the SIM card works, the voice commands all work (which allows you to operate A LOT of features in the phone).... but the touch screen doesn’t, and that is a deal breaker. I was heartbroken…

Yo, por supuesto, called ATT’s regular customer service, simply to go through the motions of going through the proper channels before escalating it. Como se esperaba, they couldn’t help me. A liquid damaged phone is an utterly worthless phone. There was nothing they could do. They were all very nice, professional and sympathetic, aunque, which I can appreciate.

So, anoche, I pulled the “email the CEO” trick, and composed a well written email to the CEO and VP’s. I explained what happened, I explained what a great customer I’ve been since 2005, and how many customers I’ve brought to ATT throughout the years, etc. En retrospectiva, I probably could have just stuck with that level of information and they still would’ve resolved it, but I wanted to be sure to leave no room for doubt. So, I was sure to throw in a paragraph about my inability to take a total loss on this phone.

I would not only be losing a fantastic $600 teléfono, I would have wasted a $36 upgrade fee, and the actual, much anticipated upgrade itself. I’d have to wait another 18 months for the next upgrade. SO brutal. Tan, I explained to them that, since I cannot take a total loss on this, if they cannot help me, I would have no choice but to look at moving to Sprint. With Sprint, I could take advantage of their buy back program, which would award me $90 for my iPhone, and with a new 2-year contract, the Galaxy S3 is $200… meaning I could get another Galaxy S3 for about $110, PLUS I could get unlimited data.

I also made a point to acknowledge that I know this was 100% my fault, and that if they chose not to help me, I still wouldn’t trash them to anyone.. but if they DID do this for me, I would certainly sing their praises to the world. Tan, here I am doing just that.

First thing this morning, I received a phone call, and a follow up email from ATT letting me know that they will be happy to replace my Galaxy S3 for me. No sólo eso, but they offered to replace my SD card if it was damaged from the water, AND they FedEx overnighted it, meaning it will be here Wednesday. They went WAY above and beyond what I expected. I am beyond thrilled and excited that I don’t have to take this major loss on this brand new phone, and ATT has just secured a customer for life with me.

I hope this article can help others to resolve their issues in the future. You should always follow the proper channels (es decir, call customer service, ask to speak with a supervisor or 2, and THEN take it to the executives), but both times I have attempted this method, it worked to my favor tremendously (the first time was with Office Depot, and I got a free $1,000 laptop out of it). I originally got the idea to email the executives from this website! It was the best tip I’ve ever read.

25 Diciembre 12 Samsung Galaxy Camera Review: Cumple con Android apuntar y disparar la cámara


PHOTO: Samsung's Galaxy Camera brings the connectivity and sharing features of Android to a point-and-shoot camera.

A couple of years ago, if you went digging through a purse or a backpack, you’d likely find a point-and-shoot camera. Now you’ll find that most people instead use the cameras built into their smartphones. Not only have camera phones improved, they let you instantly share photos with family and friends.

Samsung has a new ideato bring together the best of the standalone camera and the smartphone. Its new Galaxy Camera is what you’d get if a point-and-shoot camera were crossed with an Teléfono Androidit promises to take better photos than most phones but has built in sharing capabilities. But can it do it all? Is it the best of both worlds?

WATCH: Samsung Galaxy Camera Video Review

A Camera with a Big Touch Screen
The Galaxy Camera looks like a regular camera from the front, but flip it around and it looks like a big-screen Android phone. It has a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear Touch display, which looks and acts very much like Samsung’s Galaxy S 3 teléfono. It is powered by Android 4.1 o Jelly Bean. You can navigate through the operating system just as you would on a phone. Sí, you can surf the Web, even check your email and download and use apps from the Google Play Store thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi radio and the built-in LTE. (There are Verizon and ATT versions of the cameramore on the pricing soon.)

You can’t text message or make calls on the camera (that’s not a complaintholding a camera up to your ear doesn’t look all that cool) but you can easily snap photos and upload them to Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Picasa or other sites. And snapping pics and sharing them is really a cinch. While Wi-Fi-enabled cameras are a dime a dozen, the Android operating system is easy to navigate, especially when it comes to adjusting settings and selecting photos to share. If you’re an Instagram fan, this is the ultimate Instagram camera. And your shots will look better than most of the others in your feed.

A Good Camera with Great Features
That’s because 16.3-megapixel camera has a 21x optical zoom and takes very good still shots. Shots in natural lighting were well balanced, and while low-light performance wasn’t spectacular, it was acceptable for the specs. Sin embargo, the photos I took were not as good as shots I take with a $600 Canon DSLR (I’ve got the Canon T2i) or a micro-four-thirds camera. They were better than photos taken with the iPhone 5 o Galaxy S 3, but about the same as what you get from an average point-and-shoot.

Sin embargo, where the camera does stand out as a camera is in its “inteligente” shooting features. Samsung has matched the hardware with some interesting software features, incluyendo un “best photomode that will select the best of eight shots for you. There is also acontinuous shot” modo, which captures a series of moving photos. While some of the images I took of my cousins playing football suffered from motion blur, others were clear.

You can also shoot 1080p video and take still shots while you are shooting. Oh, and you can apply Samsung’s own filters and effects, in case you don’t want to use a third-party app. Samsung has brought most of its great Android photo features to the camera. Por encima de todo, there’s anExpertmode for those photographers who want more manual controls for adjusting aperture, ISO, shutter speed and more.

A Camera With Battery and Size Sacrifices
With all those features come some major sacrifices. Primero, the camera is bulky for what it is. Sí, it has a 21x zoom lens, but the camera is almost an inch thick, 5 inches wide and weighs 11 oz. That doesn’t make it large, but it’s much larger than the average point-and-shoot. It’s closer in size to micro-four-thirds or mirrorless cameras like the Olympus E-PL5 or Panasonic GX1, which take noticeably better photos.

Customization will also get easier, with automatically resizing widgets to fit on the screen with other icons.

U.S. Cellular is the latest Samsung’s carrier partner to receive the upgrade. Since the phone maker confirmed in early October that it would be pushing Android 4.1 to its flagship Galaxy S III, Sprint, T-Mobile, A, y Microsoft Internet Explorer Verizon Wireless have all begun offering their customers the latest Google OS.

El viernes, Galaxy S III users can visit the U.S. Cellular website for details on the upgrade process. Owners can upgrade wirelessly, or by connecting their device to a computer via USB cable.

14 Diciembre 12 Verizon pone Samsung Galaxy cámara con un plan de datos más barato


Samsung’s Galaxy Camera, a point-and-shoot that runs the Android OS, has made its way over to Verizon after launching on ATT last month.

En $550, Verizon’s Galaxy Camera is $50 more expensive than ATT’s version, but it does have a couple advantages: A data plan for the camera only costs $5 per month on Verizon if you’re on its Compartir Todo plan, en comparación con $10 sobre el TCA (although Verizon says this is a “promotional price”). También, the data itself is faster, because it uses Verizon’s 4G LTE network, whereas the ATT version only connects to slower HSPA+ networks.


De otra manera, both cameras have the same specs. There’s a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, a 21x zoom lens, an aperture of F2.8 to F5.9 and optical image stabilization. Video records in 1080p at 30 frames per second, or in 720p at 60 frames per second.

Around back, the Galaxy Camera runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on a 4.8-inch 720p display, and it has full Google Play Store access for downloading apps such as Instagram and Facebook. Other specs include a 1.4 GHz procesador quad-core, 1 GB de RAM, 8 GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot for up to 64 GB of additional storage.


Verizon’s cheaper data plan makes the idea of a connected camera a bit more palatable, but it still seems like a lot to pay if you’re not constantly uploading photos on the road. Keep in mind that Verizon’s Share Everything plans allow your smartphone to serve as a wireless hotspot at no extra charge. Most users should just skip the data plan altogether and connect the camera to their phone’s hotspot to share and upload photos.

The Galaxy Camera is available now through Verizon’s Website.

13 Diciembre 12 Samsung Galaxy Gran Duos, Galaxy S II Plus posiblemente espiado en china …


Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos, Galaxy S II Plus possibly spied in Chinese certification

Samsung has been pushing an ever-growing number of its mid-tier phones to larger screen sizes, and there’s further evidence that it’s not about to stop. Following some rumors, both the Galaxy Grand Duos and Galaxy S II Plus appear to have been spotted going through China’s TENAA certification process. The Grand Duos seen here isn’t likely to reach the US given its lack of compatible 3G, but it looks to have a Galaxy S III-based design that’s still relatively fresh for the category. Claims have it mating its namesake dual SIM slots with a 4.5-inch (if just 800 x 480) pantalla, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and cameras similar to its bigger cousin.

As for the Galaxy S II Plus? While it should have 3G that works with ATT and Canadian carriers, we’re not anticipating much pressure to bring the S II Plus to North America when the device at TENAA closely resembles the 4.3-inch original, especially if talk of a modest 1GHz dual-core chip proves true. We’ll need an official announcement, or further leaks, to know whether the S II Plus or the Grand Duos are enough to lure in new buyers.

15 Junio 12 Sony Xperia Ion Smartphone Android ofrece 4,6 pulgadas de pantalla, $99 …


Sony es el último fabricante de teléfonos a la atribulada
tratar de luchar algo de cuota de mercado a Apple y Samsung.

ATT comenzará a vender el Xperia de Sony
ion, un teléfono Android equipado con Long-Term Evolution (LTE) tecnología, Junio 24 para
$99.99-Un precio que pone el Sony directamente sobre el césped de Nokia.

Nokia, También luchando por recuperar cuota de mercado,
con su nuevo compromiso con el teléfono de Microsoft, Windows, estableció con ATT
un $99.99 precio de punto para el Lumia 900. El precio era una novedad
y ayudó a atraer a los titulares del teléfono y los globos oculares-y probablemente también las ventas. En
Abril y mayo, la Lumia 900 fue de teléfono más vendido ATT, detrás de la de Apple
iPhone 4S, de acuerdo a la firma de inversiones Canaccord Genuity.

Si los precios no obtiene el ion Xperia alguna
atención, sin embargo, Sony todavía tiene otras dos cartas para jugar. Uno es un 4,6-pulgadas
720p HD Display de la realidad con un móvil Bravia Engine. Tomado de Sony
televisión en línea, el motor de vídeo se dice que ofrecen “inmejorable HD
ver,” de acuerdo con TCA.

El otro es la compatibilidad con lo que Sony es
llamando a las etiquetas etiquetas inteligentes-de campo cercano basado en la comunicación que traen a la mente la
círculos de metal a menudo repartidos en los museos, para que los visitantes dan a su
ojales. Usando una aplicación gratuita, los usuarios pueden programar las etiquetas para hacer que el teléfono haga
cosas que ya hace, sólo más rápido. Por ejemplo, en lugar de atenuación del teléfono
y el establecimiento de la alarma antes de irse a la cama cada noche, estas tareas pueden ser
programado para una etiqueta que el usuario simplemente desliza cada noche.

Samsung
anunció recientemente una oferta similar.
Llamado TecTiles, Samsung son como
sellos de plástico, vendido en cinco paquetes para $15 y son reutilizables. La etiquetas inteligentes de Sony
estará disponible en cuatro paquetes de $30.

El ion Xperia corre un procesador de 1.5GHz de doble núcleo
procesador y tiene 16 GB de memoria interna, además de una ranura de expansión microSD que
compatible con otra de 32 GB. Con High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) y Digital
Living Network Alliance (DLNA) tecnología, el teléfono también puede apoyar multipantalla
conectividad. Es PlayStation Certificado para juegos de alta calidad y cuenta con un
12-cámara de megapíxeles con un sensor Exmor R y vídeo de alta definición 1080p
grabación. También hay una alta definición de 720p cámara frontal para video llamadas.

Trabajando contra el teléfono, sin duda, es el
curiosa decisión para que se ejecute Android 2.3, conocida como Gingerbread. Si bien Google
desde entonces ha lanzado dos versiones de otros-de nido de abeja, que está optimizado para
tabletas, y Ice Cream Sandwich, que ofrece más funciones y una más general
agradables usuario puede experimentar-los datos de Ráfaga
Analítica
encontrado 70 por ciento de los usuarios de Android que todavía se esté ejecutando
Pan de jengibre. Sólo 7 por ciento están usando sándwich de helado.

Es un detalle que es frustrante para Android
los desarrolladores de Apple-y una se apresuró a señalar durante su Worldwide Developer
Conferencia inaugural junio 11, diciendo a los asistentes que 80 por ciento de los dispositivos IOS
actualmente se encuentra ejecutando iOS 5. (Ejecutivos de Apple procedió a mostrar la
próximo iOS 6.)

Durante el primer trimestre de 2012, Samsung
más que el enviado 86.6 millones de teléfonos móviles, por el número de Gartner, seguido por
Nokia con 83.2 millones, y Apple con 33 millón. Las ventas de smartphones fueron
dominado por Apple y Samsung, que en conjunto aumentaron su mercado combinada
compartir 49.3 por ciento, desde 29.3 ciento del año anterior.

Los teléfonos Android, colectivamente, representaron
más que 56 ciento de los envíos.

Sony, claramente la construcción de su cartera,
presentó el Xperia miro y Tipo Xperia en junio del Reino Unido 13. Ambos
tienen una menor megapíxeles cámaras, vienen en una variedad de colores y ejecutar Ice Cream
Sándwich.

13 Junio 12 TecTiles Samsung automatizar tareas Android a través de NFC


10 Ways To Get More From Your Android Device
(haga clic en la imagen para ampliarla y para la presentación de diapositivas)

Con la esperanza de aumentar el interés en la comunicación de campo cercano (NFC) tecnología, Samsung Mobile el miércoles tiene previsto introducir TecTiles, programables etiquetas NFC que se pueden utilizar para automatizar acciones en NFC teléfonos Android.

La compañía planea vender TecTiles en paquetes de cinco, en línea y en tiendas a través de ATT, Verizon, Sprint, y tiendas T-Mobile, para $15. La aplicación Android obligados a TecTiles programa está disponible sin costo en la tienda Play Google.

Los azulejos no son mucho que ver–brillante poco 2″ cuadrados–pero su asequibilidad y flexibilidad podría ayudar a acelerar la llegada de la tan esperada Internet de las Cosas.

[ Leer Apple WWDC: Los nuevos MacBooks, iOS 6, León de la Montaña. ]

El hijo de Dale, presidente de Samsung Telecommunications America, , dijo en un comunicado que Samsung ve “una oportunidad para ampliar el valor de la NFC más allá de los pagos móviles.”

Samsung sugiere que TecTiles tienen el potencial de transformar la manera en las empresas se involucran con los clientes. Una tienda con un TecTile podía, por ejemplo, programar la etiqueta para enviar un mensaje de texto, cargar una página Web, iniciar una aplicación, mostrar una notificación, o realizar algún otro tipo de comercialización o la función de las redes sociales. Un cine podría enviar un TecTile en una pared para ofrecer a los clientes la oportunidad de silenciar sus NFC teléfonos con Android, ya que entrar en el teatro.

TecTiles también podría ser utilizado por conveniencia personal. Un TecTile en la mesa al lado de la cama de una podría alterar la configuración del teléfono para evitar llamadas de interrumpir el sueño de un. Un TecTile en su auto podría desactivar los mensajes de texto. Un TecTile en la propia oficina podría permitir el acceso a la oficina de red Wi-Fi.

Estas tareas se pueden realizar sin NFC, el uso de aplicaciones de automatización como AutomateIt y Microsoft Internet Explorer Tasker. Pero para las personas poco dispuestas a crear tareas automatizadas, TecTiles ofrecen una manera de hacer comandos pre-programados accesibles.

TecTiles no funcionan en las superficies metálicas y en el presente trabajo sólo con estos teléfonos con NFC para Android: Samsung Galaxy S III sobre el TCA, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular or Verizon; Samsung Galaxy S II de T-Mobile; Galaxy Nexus en Verizon, Sprint, y GSM desbloqueado;
Nexus S 4G de Sprint; y Samsung Galaxy S 4G Blaze en T-Mobile.

Apple aún no ofrecen la tecnología NFC en sus dispositivos iOS, aunque algunos observadores de la industria esperan que eso cambie cuando el iPhone 5 llega a finales de este año.

En este año InformationWeek 500 Conferencia Los ejecutivos de nivel C se reunirán para discutir la forma en que están volviendo a escribir el antiguo reglamento de TI y acelerar la ejecución del negocio. En el St. Regis Monarch Beach, Dana Point, California, Siete. 9-11.
