Samsung Galaxy Precedent

It looks like Wal-Mart and Tracfone will be offering the Samsung Galaxy Precedent, an entry level Android powered smartphone, with no contractual obligations attached.  It's expected to be below $150, while still featuring Android 2.2, an 800 MHz processor and a 2 megapixel camera.  It's not too bad for the price, and easily competes with the entry level LG Optimus line up that's offered on all major and regional carriers.

Samsung Gets New Naming Schema

It looks like Samsung is changing up the ways they name and label their smartphones.  They will be keeping the main names, Galaxy, Wave and Omnia, but will be adding letter designations based on the market they're going after.  The Galaxy line will remains as the Android flagship, the Wave the Bada (Samsung's own OS) flagship and the Omnia will remain the Windows Phone 7 flagship names.  The difference comes in the letters after the main name.

Samsung Galaxy Fit Review

Samsung has been on a dominant spree in the smartphone market, especially for higher end devices. That doesn't mean they've forgotten the middle tier and entry level markets. The Samsung Galaxy Fit is the entry level version of the Samsung Galaxy S. For people who can't quite afford the Galaxy S, the Galaxy Fit may be the device to check out.

Samsung Barred in European Union

Troubling news, it seems the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been barred in the majority of the European Union.  This is stemming from the patent violation claims made by Apple.  The Netherlands is not among the nations barring the Galaxy Tab 10.1, but Apple has a separate lawsuit underway there.  This is only a preliminary injunction on Samsung at the moment, and is not permanent, but it shows that the European Union feels there's a strong case by Apple being made against Samsung.

It looks like TmoNews has gotten a bit of unofficial confirmation that the Samsung Hercules that has been long rumored to be T-Mobile's super powered Samsung handset is, in fact, their variant of the Samsung Galaxy S2.  The Hercules is set to have a 4.5 inch display, like the Samsung Infuse, and access to T-Mobile's 4G HSPA+ network, allowing up to 42 Mbps.  It's also rumored to feature dual core, 1.2 GHz processors which is good news for folks looking for a faster operating system.

Nexus S Free at Best Buy

If you head out to Best Buy and get on a 2 year contract with T-Mobile, AT&T or Sprint, the Nexus S comes free!  The deal is only for today, August 3rd, so if you're itching for a free Nexus S, today is the only day to get it.  A free Nexus S is actually a sweet deal considering it is supported fully by Google, features stock Android, NFC, and some powerful specs. The best idea would to be to hop onto T-Mobile's plans, as they are the cheapest, and once the buy out occurs, just stay grandfathered in at AT&T with the Nexus S.
