AT&T LTE-Enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Appears at the FCC

This image has no alt text

Just as was the case with the original, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 seems to be doing good things on carriers as AT&T wants to get in on the fun of carrying one. An LTE equipped version of the tablet for Ma Bell has been spotted at the FCC. Alongside compatible radios for their network, their 4G LTE logo on the back of the device is more than enough of a giveaway for us.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a very slim Android tablet that foregoes many desirable ports for its good looks. Still, we believe it’s one of the best Honeycomb tablets out there. It sports a 1GHz Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 10.1 inch display, Android 3.1+ and more.

It remains to be seen how AT&T will price this tablet, though we’d wager they’ll be a bit more expensive than the 16GB and 32GB flavors with only WiFi radios. Other than that, we expect everything else to remain business as usual – we just need some official information from AT&T itself. [FCC via Wireless Goodness]

HTC Raider Headed to Rogers with LTE

The HTC Raider (aka HTC Holiday hasn’t been made official for any North American regions just yet, but we can likely add one more to the list. The Raider, an Android 2.3 device boasting a 4.5-inch qHD display, will bring its LTE radio to Rogers in Canada, making it among the network’s first devices to use the next-gen 4G technology. Rumors originating at MobileSyrup state that the Raider could be available as soon as November 1st.

For those looking to activate a new plan with Rogers, here is a great deal. Starting up a new family plan with at least two lines supporting voice and data will be eligible to receive a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 free of charge. Not a bad time to consider your network options if happen to reside north of the border.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 does infringe iPad patents in US

UPDATED: Samsung lawyer slips up
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 does infringe iPad patents in US

As Apple successfully launches its iPhone 4S phone today, it is also celebrating in US courts as a judge has ruled that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 does infringe on some of Apple's iPad patents. However, no injunction has been ordered as yet, and there is a question on the validity of some of those patents.

US District Judge Lucy Koh even went as far as denying the request to injunct the Samsung tablet on the grounds of a "utility" patent presented by Apple, but is taking three other "design" patents into consideration before giving her final judgement.

Apple, though, will have to prove that the patents it is basing its case on are valid under US law.

According to Reuters,?Koh "characterised her thoughts on the utility patent as tentative", but claimed that a formal order would be issued "fairly promptly".

The case is also being brought against the South Korean company's?Galaxy S 4G, the US equivalent of the Samsung Galaxy S II.

Earlier in the day (Thursday 13 October), the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was given a temporary ban in Australia by a local court.

UPDATE: Remarkably, it has also just been reported by AllThingsDigital that one of the Samsung lawyers in the US case couldn't tell the difference between the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Apple iPad. When asked if she could distinguish between them by?US District Judge Koh, who held them up, Samsung?attorney?Kathleen Sullivan said "not at this distance, your honour".

Sullivan was standing just 10 feet away from the devices. Yikes!

The judge then had to ask the room, "Can any of Samsung’s lawyers tell me which one is Samsung and which one is Apple?"

A classic own goal.

Apple Secures Samsung Galaxy Tab Ban in Australia

This image has no alt text

Samsung has taken yet another blow in the global patent war being waged against the Android manufacturer by Apple. A court in Australia has upheld a preliminary injunction banning sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Features such as a touchscreen interface were ruled too similar to those of the iPad by Justice Annabelle Bennet.

Samsung plans to appeal the verdict, which produced a similar result to the ruling reached in German courts. Samsung plans to counter European bans by releasing updated devices that tweak alleged patent-infringing details, but with touchscreen technology a central part of the Galaxy Tab 10.1′s design, it is hard to see how Samsung could deploy a similar tactic in Australia. A statement released by the company read, “We are disappointed with this ruling and Samsung will be seeking legal advice on its options. We will continue to legally assert our intellectual property rights against those who violate Samsung’s patents and free ride on our technology.”

T-Mobile SpringBoard 4G Tablet Released, Together With the HSPA+ Version of Galaxy Tab 10.1 on the Same Carrier

T-Mobile USA has just released a bunch of 4G Android tablet, including the 7 inch T-Mobile Springboard and the 10.1 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. The former is a rebranded Huawei MediaPad, while the Samsung device gets HSPA+ as an extra.

Huawei MediaPad aka the SpringBoard 4G comes with a 7 inch display, a dual core 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor and a 5 megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture. Add to that a front camera for videocalls (1.3MP), an SD card slot, GPS and some preloaded services: Netflix, T-Mobile TV, Blockbuster on Demand, all of these taking advantage of the HSPA+ 14.4 Mbps connection.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is already a famous product, so there’s no need to mention the 10.1 inch 1280 x 800 pixel display, the dual core 1GHz processor or the 3 megapixel main camera and 2 megapixel front camera. I guess I did mention them in the end, but a quick reminder never killed anyone, right? Personally I don’t find the name SpringBoard very appealing, but T-Mobile must have some marketing studies behind this decision…

T-Mobile Announces the Huawei-Manufactured T-Mobile Springboard Tablet and a 4G Capable Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

This image has no alt text

The folks at the carrier of magenta (T-Mobile if you haven’t been keeping up) have announced two new tablets. One kind of doesn’t count as a huge announcement in our books. It’s the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with 4G radios inside.

While T-Mobile initially confirmed they’d be carrying the tablet, we didn’t know if it’d be WiFi-only or with data radios inside. Now we know. Look forward to HSPA+ connectivity alongside a 10.1 inch display, a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, Android 3.2 Honeycomb and more.

The 7-inch T-Mobile Springboard will excite quite a bit of you. T-Mobile’s calling this one “ultra-portable” as the Huawei-manufactured tablet purports that aforementioned 7 inch display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor (no mention on the make and model), a 5 megapixel rear camera that is capable of shooting 1080p HD video, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and a standard SD card slot with support for 32GB cards.

Both tablets have been given an availability window of “in time for the holiday season” with nary a price to mention. Read on for full press details.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Headed to T-Mobile October 26

Last week T-Mobile confirmed that the carrier will stock the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, and a newly leaked roadmap courtesy of TMoNews has the details on when we can expect it. October 26th looks to be the date that T-Mobile will join in on the Galaxy Tab party. If you are looking ahead to even newer things, the 7-inch Galaxy Tab Plus is also right around the corner.

Galaxy Tab 10.1 Coming to T-Mobile Soon, Officially Confirmed

T-Mobile has just announced on Twitter that it will be selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 table soon enough, but without announcing a launch date. A 4G version of the slate is highly likely, but a WiFi-only unit wouldn’t surprise me at all.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is one of the most controversial tablets out there, along with HP TouchPad. However, Samsung’s device wasn’t an on and off affair like the TouchPad, but rather a renegade device, first banned from some countries that thought it was too similar to the iPad and then returning like a prodigal son, after some lawsuits.

T-Mobile will price this model at around $500 in its cheapest version that immediately draws comparisons with the iPad 2 or the just announced Amazon Kindle Fire. We have to remind you that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is thinner and lighter than the iPad 2, hence all the drama between this device and the Apple slate, as the South Korean product is a real worthy competitor for it… but it does actually borrow from its design.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1: The weirdest tab accessory yet – a bike

Yep, a bike
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1: The weirdest tab accessory yet - a bike

When you buy a new tablet you have to consider which accessories you're going to need to fork out for too, to get the complete experience.

You'll probably need a case of some sort, to stop it getting damaged. A stand is a good idea if you want to use it on your desk. Bluetooth keyboards are also handy if you're planning on using your tab for a bit of office action.

What you probably haven't considered is a "custom made road bike and top of the range tablet holder".

But that's exactly what Samsung has on offer for owners of its Honeycomb boasting Galaxy Tab 10.1

"Demonstrating the Galaxy Tab 10.1’s 'lighter for performance' ethos the Tab holder is designed by F1 manufacturers, is?super light at 125g and is complete with a super strong premium finish," read the release statement.

"Accessible from the side, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 holder allows for the device to be used easily whilst on the move. Applications such as dashboards tracking mileage, route planners and repair instructions for punctures, can be downloaded from the Android Marketplace to enhance everyday cycling routes or more adventurous trips – a handy addition for any cyclist."

Yes, it really did say "on the move". Cycling and tableting on the go - it's a new one for us.

Don't get us wrong, we love the Galaxy Tab 10.1 as it's an awesome device. But we're not going to risk smashing the screen to smithereens by having it hanging from our bike's top tube.

But hey, everyone's different so if you are interested the bespoke Samsung Galaxy bike and Tab 10.1 holder can be made to order by 14 Bike Co.
