This is what happened at the end of the countdown…..LOL
The website http://www.tgeltaayehxnx.com/ hung soon after the countdown finished
The countdown is over and Samsung’s not offering much to whet our appetite. A medley of opaque angles of galactic travel are meant to represent next week’s big news story, alongside some brief claims of technology that fits easily in your hand. It finishes all too soon on those glossy enamel puddles shown above. The second trailer reveals more of the same, with Samsung promising the device will become “a natural side of life”, throwing in a quick jibe at those rival smartphone-carrying “sheep”. While we reckon we broadly know what to expect when it comes to internal hardware, we’re still itching see how Samsung’s looking to reinvigorate its phone design following HTC’s stylish smartphone salvo. Well, at least it’s just over a week left to wait.
I didn’t know that i would be saying this so soon just after one year after the launch of Galaxy S II. The S II did light the smartphone sky and the S III is round the corner.
But MEANWHILE there is this true smartphone in the league of extraordinary handsets by HTC.
The specs will make you faint:
1.5 ghz Quad Core.
Tegra 3 Chipset(OH MY GOD).
Simultaneous HD video and image recording.
Bigger, thinner and faster than iPhone 4S.
25 GB OF DROPBOX space free!
32 GB internal.
Screen Real Estate 720 x 1280 pixels, 4.7 inches (~312 ppi pixel density)

This picture is very good example of what the GALAXY S Camera can do. Tip for all phone camera users….for better results you need more light. It doesn’t have to direct light but you need more lumens. This picture was taken indoors but standing right next to the window in a bright sunny February winter afternoon.

Alright. This one’s a bit different. So we act accordingly. And because we’re not quite versed in all things fashion, let’s move straight to what we’re good at. Meet the HTC Rhyme. HTC Rhyme official picturesKey FeaturesComes in colors no man can nameHas a purse charmMirror app preloadedMain disadvantagesThere’s no period calendar pre-installedSeriously, now. Tough job building a ladies phone – but hey, that’s what accessories are for. Before we get to them though, the HTC Rhyme is a delicious little phone, except that it’s not that little at all. The good thing is the trademark unibody design is less industrial but softer and more delicate. And the colors… Apart from the accessories, the paintjobs are the only thing that makes the handset different. Feminine?The HTC Rhyme is hard to define. It almost feels like they didn’t plan this one as a phone for girls. When they later decided to target the female audience, they came up with all sorts of relevant accessories. You’ll never hear anyone at HTC call it the ladies smartphone. But it’s being marketed as one. They are extra careful to avoid references to Android and don’t even call it a smartphone in any of their ads.That’s not what we’re gonna do. We’ll look at the smartphone inside the Rhyme. And see if it could be his smartphone too, as much as hers. That’s what HTC would gladly have people think. It’d be a win-win for them.But let’s see what’s in the HTC Rhyme for users. We have the full list of features and possible deal-breakers coming up.
Key features (the real thing)
Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA3.7″ 16M-color capacitive S-LCD touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels)Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.51 GHz single Scorpion CPUs, Adreno 205 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 chipset768 MB RAM; 4 GB storagemicroSD card slot (class 4 8GB card in the bundle)5 MP autofocus camera with single LED flash; face detection, geotagging, HDR mode, image auto-upload720p video recording @ 30fps, slo-mo videos (2x at WVGA)Wi-Fi b/g/n and DLNAGPS with A-GPSStereo FM radio with RDSAccelerometer, proximity and ambient light sensorFront facing camera, video callStandard 3.5 mm audio jackmicroUSB port (charging) and stereo Bluetooth v3.0Smart dial, voice dialingOffice document editorDivX/XviD video supportHTC Locations appHTCSense.com integrationHTC Portable HotspotUltra-fast boot timesRich set of accessories
Main disadvantages (sadly, the real thing)
Average displayNon-user-replaceable batteryNo dedicated camera keyPricey for a single-core smartphone (generously accessorized though)Wi-Fi death grip issuesSo, what’s so special about the Rhyme? No, it’s not another Beats Audio phone – although we love the headset it ships with. We’re looking at a pretty much standard unibody package running a familiar Android Gingerbread/Sense UI combo. But the accessories and paintjobs do make it different from the slew of Android handsets. There is a leather pouch, a docking cradle, specially designed headphones and the eye-catching Charm cube that lights up upon an incoming call or message.

The recently released LG Optimus Pad costs a good deal more than the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and has no fancy TouchWiz UI to brag about, but comes with one of a kind feature – stereoscopic 3D video recording (it also does 1080p videos in 2D). If you are really into this thing, then the Optimus Pad might be your only option.
The first Android Honeycomb tablet – Motorola XOOM – has significantly dropped price and got a series of updates, which turned a beta-feeling device into a decent deal. You’d still be getting Android 3.1 experience (minus the TouchWiz extras) for €100 less, so it’s definitely worth checking out. Of course you won’t be getting the marvelously slim waistline or the 565g weight of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 with the XOOM, but on the upside, you’ll be receiving cheap memory expansion through the microSD card slot.
The EeePad Transformer by Asus has a few tricks in its bag too. It brings a 10.1” LED-backlit IPS LCD display with scratch protection, a memory card slot, Waveshare UI and, most important of all, the optional keyboard dock that turns it into a droid netbook. Not to mention that it also comes at a lower price.
Finally, if you have nothing against the Apple way of things and you are ready to sacrifice a few feats (Flash playback and, proper file management and multi-tasking spring to mind) for bigger and better variety of apps and smoother performance then you can get the 16GB Apple iPad 2 3G on exactly the same price as the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
As you can see the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 can stand its ground against just about every one of its competitors quite well. Plus it certainly is fun to use and that’s a quality valued above everything else in this class.
Tablets are basking in well-deserved attention and manufacturers know they need to try hard and make their devices distinct and memorable. Truly unique gadgets are hard to come by these days – especially in Honeycomb land. Which is perhaps part of the reason why iPad is still the one to beat. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 3G is in for a challenge, and up for it.
It’s not easy being an Android tablet these days. The iPad is the supreme ruler of the market, leaving but a small part of it to the huge number of competitors. So even if the Galaxy Tab 10.1 manages to successfully tackle a few dozens of devices running the same platform plus a few exotic competitors, the best it can hope for is go at the number two spot.
But that’s not necessarily bad – Rome wasn’t built in a day and Samsung is certainly under no illusion that it will manage to knock Apple of its tablet perch with a single device. Apple took a gamble with slates, it worked and now they have the advantage in a rapidly expanding market, while the competition is playing catch up.
Now we are not saying Apple cannot be beaten at its own game – most recent smartphone history suggests otherwise. We are just saying that some serious preparation is required if such a thing is to happen. Convincing customers that you can beat the iPad hardware or software isn’t enough – you need to convince them that you can match or outdo the Apple user experience.
And from where we stand after we completed the review the Galaxy Tab 10.1 can be a pretty strong argument for both Samsung and Android. And it’s not just the really good PLS TFT display with Gorilla Glass, the powerful Tegra 2 chipset or the excellent connectivity (though those all score points for it). It’s more the case of the Honeycomb 3.1-running slate being the most complete offering we’ve seen from the Android camp to date.
The Samsung-made TouchWiz UI takes the already great Honeycomb functionality another level up, while the 3.1 Android update brings an overdue performance boost. Meanwhile app numbers are growing by the day and as we know apps are the heart of every tablet ecosystem. And if the ones you need haven’t come out in tablet flavor just yet the excellent video player will still make your Galaxy Tab 10.1 great fun.
So that’s the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 summarized – it’s a nice tablet that no one would mind having around. What’s even more we doubt anyone will regret spending €500 (for the Wi-Fi only version) €600 (Wi-Fi + 3G) on it. If you aren’t quite convinced though, you might want to try some of its alternatives.
he hit smartphone Galaxy S II has surpassed the 10 million landmark in global sales. It managed to achieve this in just five months of going on sale.
The previous record holder in Samsung’s fleet was the Samsung Star S5230, which managed to cross the 10 million mark in six months. The hot selling Galaxy S managed to achieve the same in about seven months. Being significantly more expensive than both, the fact that the Galaxy S II managed to reach the sales figure in a shorter period of time is quite an achievement.
Then again, this is not surprising. The Galaxy S II has struck a chord with the smartphone buyers thanks to its awesome features and performance and people are shoveling their money at Samsung just to get their hands on the best smartphone on the market right now. Now that the phone has started selling in the US as well, the next landmark will probably take even less time.

HTC has finally announced Rhyme. It’s a mid-range Android handset targeting the female smartphone users out there. The gadget was previously rumored as HTC Bliss and leaked numerous times inpictures, specs, spy shots, etc.
Despite the lack of surprise about it, the Rhyme still looks pretty sweet. It is based on the Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon (MSM8655 for Verizon) featuring a 1GHz single-core Scorpion processor, Adreno 205 GPU and 768MB RAM. HTC Rhyme utilizes a 3.7-inch WVGA display and has 5 megapixel snapper with 720p camcorder, 4GB internal storage, 8GB pre-installed microSD card and the usual connectivity package.
HTC Rhyme runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and comes with the latest Sense UI 3.5 on top of it. There is also the HTC Watch service for on-demand Hollywood movies streaming.
The most interesting part about the Rhyme……………..
is its retail package. It comes with a docking station, a “sports armband”, a Bluetooth headset and a “Charm cable” that has a small cube, which lights up for incoming calls and messages. There is also a nice in-ear wired headset with music controls. All the accessories will come in the Rhyme color. The Verizon’s Rhyme will come in “lavender”, but we already saw a silver version too.
There is nothing mentioned about the previously rumored pouch. We guess it might be a market-dependent thing.
The HTC Rhyme is hitting Verizon’s network on September 29. Europe and Asian markets are going to get it in October. There is nothing on the price yet, but it shouldn’t be too expensive.
