It seems that Samsung has make it its purpose to bring Apple down. The patent war and products that visually do resemble Apple’s only show that Samsung’s having a good time playing with the Silicon Valley based company. Now, the latest news from Samsung will surely reignite the war on patents, as the company will released a new Nexus.
Samsung bothers Apple for several reasons: it’s an advocate of Android, the sworn death enemy of iOS, it continues to market tablets and smartphones that resemble iPhone or iPad. On top of that the defiance Samsung has towards Apple’s statements and legal actions, has surely taken its toll on its executives.
Now, AT&T announced that it accepts pre orders for Samsung’s new Galaxy Note, a 5.3 inch smartphone and tablet hybrid that will hit the stores on February 19th. AT&T features the phone at $299.99 in pre order with a two year subscription.
The Galaxy Nexus is the first smartphone to carry Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, four months after its release. It brings the user a 1.2 GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM and a 5.3 inch Super AMOLED display with HD 720p 1280×8000 resolution. Top that with a 5MP camera and a choice of 16GB or 32GB of internal storage and you’ve got a great gadget.
But the good news aren’t over. There’s one more thing about the new Galaxy Nexus that will surely make customers to say the least curious about. The device comes in Carbon Blue and Ceramic White, again an obvious hint to Apple.
And the Galaxy Note Super Bowl ad surely caused some seizures in the Apple headquarters. The ad starts with some Apple fans waiting in line to get their latest iPhone, but then they see a Samsung Galaxy Note. The glorious device makes them break down Apple Store barricades, throw their iPhones and join a group dance number to praise the Galaxy Note. “I believe in a thing called love” is the song and the ad ends with the tagline: “The next big thing is here. Again”.
In other news, or more like rumors, it seems that the upcoming iPhone and Galaxy will be waterproof, challenging the myth that smartphones fear water.
