Developers working on Replicant OS, a free and open-source spin of Google‘s Android operating system, have claimed to uncover a backdoor into the device’s file-system for several Samsung Galaxy mobile devices using the stock Android image…
Samsung has announced the official availability of its Galaxy TabPRO 12.2 tablet in the U.S. Interested customers can get this device in the 32GB flavor from March 9 through Amazon, Best Buy, Fry’s, Newegg, PC Richard and Sons, Tiger Direct and Walmart. Considering the size of the tablet, the pricing doesn’t seem like a lot. Attach a Bluetooth keyboard and you have yourself a decent sized notebook, for a price lower than most entry level Windows Ultrabooks or even the MacBook Air. Samsung is possibly targeting that market with its new range of PRO tablets, even more so with the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2, which costs $ 100 more and comes with S-Pen functionality.
Samsung is also offering a ton of freebies with the Galaxy TabPRO 12.2:
- $ 25 Google Play Store Credit
- 1 Year of Gogo Inflight WiFi
- 3-Month Hulu Plus Trial (only new users)
- 3 Months of SiriusXM (only new users)
- 3 Audiobooks on Audible (only new users)
- 6 Months of WebEx (only new users)
- 50 GB of Dropbox Space (for 2 years)
- 2 Years of RemotePC (only new users)
- Hancom Office Suite
- Samsung WatchON
- 1-Year Subscription to Bloomberg Businessweek (only new users)
The Galaxy TabPRO 12.2 packs a 2560 x 1600 resolution display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (expandable), a 1.9 GHz Exynos 5420 octa core processor (3G only), Android 4.4 KitKat with Samsung’s proprietary Magazine UX and a 9,500 mAh battery.

The next generation of Samsung’s Gear smartwatches is based on its homegrown Tizen mobile OS, rather than Android, the Korean chaebol has revealed. Samsung unveiled two new Tizen-powered watch models – the Gear 2 and the Gear 2 Neo – at the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona over the weekend.

With just a few hours to go until the Galaxy S5 officially unveiled, we might finally have our first look at the actual device. So far we’ve only seen the software, but now we can see what the hardware will look like.
The S5 looks like a (as the rumors have been saying) Note 3, in its shape and size. The LED flash looks like it has been moved to below the camera, along with being more square.
It looks like the S5 will come in gold, a black, and white variants. The gold looks hideous, in my opinion. I know I wouldn’t get that model, if I were to get an S5.
There really isn’t much to say, since the S5 is being unveiled on Monday morning at MWC in Barcelona. Rest assured, we’ll finally have all the details on this phone then.
UPDATE 1: It looks like there might be a blue color in addition to the Gold, Black, and White colors. The blue doesn’t look so great either. It’s the one on the right of the Gold S5. This comes to us via Faryaab Sheikh on Twitter.

New Unpacked image showcases the power of five
We’re just under two weeks away from seeing what Samsung’s been cooking up for its Feb. 24 “Unpacked 5″ event in Barcelona, Spain, and the manufacturer’s dropping even more hints in a post published this morning on its official blog. The new image from the Samsung Tomorrow site shows nine new icons all raised to the power of five — Speed, Outdoor, Curiosity, Fun, Social, Style, Privacy, Fitness and Life. If you’ve been following the recent UI leaks from various new Samsung apps, you’ll see a clear resemblance between Samsung’s teaser and the expected UI style of the Galaxy S5 — flat, colorful icons with white outlines.
“Also we are sure that you have noticed that there is lots of 5s,” Samsung slyly notes.
Whatever it all means, we’ll be live in Barcelona to see Samsung’s next big thing on Feb. 24.
