Grab the popcorn, folks. There are some mighty interesting developments going on in TV land.
After decades of Japanese dominance, the top of the TV market is a battle royale between South Korean and Chinese brands. The shift to 4K is in its early stages, and along with it, we’ll also see a transformation in smart platforms, content delivery, and how commercials work. OLED TVs are getting cheaper, and 1080p TVs are practically free.
BlackBerry is returning to the tablet market -- this time with the help of Samsung Electronics, IBM and Secusmart, the German encryption specialist BlackBerry bought last year.
This is not the PlayBook 2 that BlackBerry was rumored to be working on last year, but the SecuTablet, developed by Secusmart and IBM for a German government department.
Samsung Electronics has received record orders for its recently unveiled flagship devices ― the Galaxy S6 (S6) and Galaxy S6 Edge (S6 Edge).
Todd Pendleton, the executive behind Samsung's successful "Next Big Thing" campaign, is looking for his next big thing -- but it won't be at Samsung.
Pendleton, who has served as chief marketing officer for Samsung's US mobile business for nearly four years, notified his colleagues this week that he's leaving in April, people familiar with the matter told CNET. Some of his direct reports have also left Samsung or have been transferred to other departments, the people said. Samsung and Pendleton didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.
T-Mobile is running a contest in the U.S. through which customers can get their hands on the upcoming Galaxy S6 for free. And as is the case for all such giveaways in the country, the carrier has listed the retail value of the handset, which is at $699. As there is no mention of a storage variant, it is possible the model listed is the 32GB variant.
