Samsung has announced the W200 multi-proof pocket camcorder designed for active users.

Despite the killing off of the FLIP there's still some movement left in the Pocket HD camcorder market. Samsung's latest release is a shock, water and dust-proof rugged unit capable of recording full high definition video and snap 5.5 megapixel stills. The bright lens and LCD screen are coated to help keep videos blur-free and the sensitivity is twice that of previous models thanks to the inclusion of backside-illumination technology.  Read More

Advertising is likely to be the first application for Samsung's new transparent LCD panels

When it comes to display technologies nothing says "cool" like a transparent display. While we've seen a number of prototypes, such as TDK's flexible OLED display, pop up at trade shows in the last couple of years, Samsung has announced it has already started mass production of a 22-inch transparent LCD panel. Because they rely on ambient light instead of the usual back lighting, the transparent panels consume 90 percent less electricity than conventional LCD panels. But despite the fact the new panels are starting to roll off the Samsung production lines, it will probably still be a while before transparent panels make it onto our desktops.  Read More

The 8.9-inch and 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab devices both get a couple of cameras, benefit from dual-core processing and come in three storage choices.  Read More

The Samsung Galaxy S II and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Ahead of Mobile World Congress 2011, which officially kicks off today, Samsung has unveiled the successors to its Galaxy S smartphone and Galaxy Tab tablet at its Unpacked event in Barcelona. At just 8.49 mm thick, Samsung is touting the Galaxy S II as “the world’s thinnest smartphone,” while thanks to its larger 10.1-inch TFT display, the next iteration of the Galaxy Tab will be known as the Galaxy Tab 10.1.  Read More

Samsung's Series 9 is a worthy competitor to the Macbook Air

In addition to the company's Slider PC7 computer, Samsung's high-end Series 9 laptop was one of the CES 2011 standouts that we wanted to go back and take a look at. Many have billed it as a Macbook Air killer, and though we wouldn't go quite that far, the comparison is certainly a valid one. The Series 9 sports a sleek design that will likely turn just as many heads as the afore-mentioned Cupertino competitor.  Read More

Thanks to smartphones, most of us these days are familiar with the idea of a sliding mechanism underneath a display screen revealing a physical keyboard. So why has it taken so long for someone to take this idea and use it for a tablet computer? Thankfully, both ASUS and Samsung have now introduced this feature to their new tablets, albeit in slightly different forms. The Samsung PC7 series tablet runs on an Atom processor, benefits from solid state storage and has Windows 7 as its operating system. Its high definition, touchscreen display should also be capable of comfortably handling indoor and outdoor use thanks to its 340-nit brightness.  Read More

It'll also be capable of streaming content using DNLA technology to a high definition television and automatically backing up photos and videos to a computer, whether it's switched on or not.  Read More

Samsung's NX11 mirrorless interchangeable lens camera is set for release in February 2011

Samsung has announced an update to its NX line of mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras along with a powerful new 24X zoom compact ahead of next week's CES. The follow up to the NX10 (sensibly called the NX11) shares many of the features of its predecessor including an APS-C (23.4 mm × 15.6 mm) size, 14.6 megapixel CMOS sensor and 3-inch AMOLED screen. The updated unit is also the same weight and size, with the key points of difference being extended compatibility with the i-Function lenses first introduced last year on the NX100 and a slight tweaking of the grip design.  Read More
