Samsung teases ‘The Next Galaxy’ [video]

Samsung recently launched a teaser website, “tgeltaayehxnx.com,” that contained a twenty-four hour countdown. When the clock hit zero Monday morning, the website redirected users to thenextgalaxy.com. Samsung teases its next-generation Galaxy device with an embedded video, and says a “whole new world will soon be unpacked.” In the final frame, the video promises that the new Galaxy device will allow users to “stand out from everyone else,” as hundreds of sheep stand in a field — a clear dig at iPhone users, who are sometimes referred to as “iSheep.” Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S III smartphone, possibly alongside a new Galaxy Tab tablet and cloud service, on May 3rd. The teaser video can be found after the break. More →

Samsung’s iCloud competitor may be unveiled at Galaxy event on May 3rd

Samsung’s iCloud competitor, dubbed S-Cloud, may be unveiled at next month’s Galaxy S III announcement in London on May 3rd, a South Korean newspaper reported on Friday. The service is similar to Apple’s offering but without any limitations on the type of content users can upload. The service is also expected to have access to popular TV shows, movies and music with free and paid content that will be available across a range of Samsung devices. The amount of storage allotted to users is rumored to be “more than 5GB,” although it isn’t clear if that will be free or is there is an associated charge. Earlier rumors suggested Samsung would delay the service after having trouble developing a suitable infrastructure for the global market. According to Maeil Business, however, the company has partnered with Microsoft to support its S-Cloud service. More →

Samsung’s iCloud competitor delayed, report claims

Samsung may be looking to launch its own cloud service to compete with Apple’s iCloud. The South Korean manufacturer originally enlisted Samsung SDS to develop the infrastructure behind the company’s new “S-Cloud” service, however it turned out to be unsuitable for the global market, reports ETNews. The company’s Media Solution Center (SMSC) is now reportedly looking to establish an infrastructure by utilizing proven commercial solutions from KT or even Amazon to help build its cloud network. The publication states that the service will more than likely be delayed due to the heavy modifications to its infrastructure. More →
