How 10 Things make Samsung’s SUHD TV special this Christmas

The SUHD TV is truly a game changer in the landscape of television as pointed out in What Does TV Mean to You and the Samsung SUHD Revolution. Television with such high picture quality and energy efficiency did not exist in the past incarnation of Television sets. But the past decade have seen rapid developements that have culminated in Samsung's proprietary, eco-friendly nano-crystal semiconductors called Quantum dots as described in Samsung’s SUHD Smart TV running Tizen OS as UHD Alliance Grows and Internet of Things Beckons. This ability means that highly efficient transmission of colours and light is possible simply by varying the size of a quantum dot, instead of using colour combination and colour filtering as in older LCD LED and Plasma Technologies. The result in a range ...

Samsung sells 1 million Tizen smartphones while seeking Developers

Samsung is truly committed to Tizen, their fledgling Smartphone, Tablet and Smart TV OS. Seems that commitment has finally paid off, as they've sold some 1 million Tizen OS smartphones in the past six months from January to June 2015 worldwide according to the Economic Times! What's more, they plan to launch even more Tizen handsets of varying prices, including a high end Gold coloured smartphone with more games and messaging apps. This is a really positive turn of events after they'd failed to crack the Russian market in July 2014 and got rejected by Huawei in August of that same year as noted in “Samsung Tizen to be reincarnated in Diwali Festival of Lights as Q4 looks like a Bleak Christmas Carol”. Apparently their sojourn into the Indian market was successful, as their ...

Samsung’s SUHD Smart TV running Tizen OS as UHD Alliance Grows and Internet of Things Beckons

Samsung has hit one straight out of the ballpark yet again at CES 2015 signaling that 4K is officially here to stay. During their keynote Presentation on Tuesday January 6th 2015 at the biggest Electronics Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada that was attended by President and CEO of Samsung Electronics, BK Yoon, Samsung basically told the Television Industry that Change is Possible while heralding the Internet of Things. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jqmc0j7a600 Samsung has turned it up a notch with the revelation of a completely new Technology called SUHD that uses Quantum Dots for their JS8500 Series of Smart UHDTV's, fulfilling a promise that Head of Samsung Electronics' TV business, Kim Hyun-seok, had reiterated in November 2014 to abandon QLED for these brighter more energy-effici...

Samsung’s Galaxy Gear S Smartwatch coming to Jamaica while reppin’ for Tizen

When I’d been called to the Samsung Launch Event that was held at their Samsung Experience Store in Tropical Plaza in Half-Way-Tree on Thursday October 16th 2014, my thoughts were that this was just a launch for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 as summarized in my article Samsung Launches quartet of Note-worthy Products to Tab into the Gear S Alpha in all Jamaicans! So I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 wasn’t the only star of the show. In fact, when the four (4) products being launched were announced, the Samsung Galaxy Gear S (“S” stands for “Solo”) was mentioned as one of the two (2) main flagship products that would be on sale by Friday October 24th 2014. Say what? As I flitted in-between the Secret Agents in the guise of Traditional Press and Soci...

Samsung Tizen to be reincarnated in Diwali Festival of Lights as Q4 looks like a Bleak Christmas Carol

One thing you must give Samsung credit for just simply not giving up on Tizen OS, despite having failed back in July 2014 to enter the Russian market as I’d reported in Samsung Z running Tizen OS fails to enter Russian Market hints at Caribbean and Latin American Launch. Samsung now plans to launch the Samsung Z9000 ZEQ in or around India's Diwali festivities in November 2014 . Apparently they’ve noticed that India seems to have a strong appetite for trying new smartphones such as competitor Blackberry, who’s Z3 was sold out in India earlier in July 2014. It’s really tough for Samsung. Since MWC 2013 (Mobile World Congress) in January as noted in Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona announces Huawei Ascend P2 as Samsung debuts Tizen OS had dreams of owning both the Operating Syste...

Samsung Z running Tizen OS fails to enter Russian Market hints at Caribbean and Latin American Launch

Samsung just can’t seem to get a break. The Samsung Z9000 ZEQ, more popularly known as the Samsung Z smartphone, failed to Launch in Russia this week of Sunday July 6th 2014. No reasons have been forthcoming, but based on the fact that this smartphone's running Tizen OS, it's not hard to guess the problem: lack of faith by Russian Carriers in the new and as-yet untried Tizen OS. This was most likely the same reason the Samsung Z failed to launch in Japan on NTT DoCoMo Network in January 2014, as the operators of that Network feared it wouldn’t' do well against Google Android based smartphones. Not familiar with the Samsung Z? It made its debut at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) in 2013 as I'd explained in my article “Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona announces Huawei Asce...

The Mobile World Congress 2013 (MWC) Kicked off on Monday February 25th 2013 in Barcelona, Spain. It the show everyone’s been waiting for as it’s the Telecom Worlds showcase of the latest and greatest smartphone and Tablet product launches for the Telecoms Equipment Supplier World. An already, even before the official show gets underway, there’s been a few revelations, mainly from Samsung, Huawei and Mozilla. Samsung has already announced the Galaxy Note 8, a 7" Google Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean smackdown response to the Apple's iPadMini. It's packing the big guns with a 1.6GHz quad-core chip with 2GB of RAM. It also sports the usual gimmickry associated with Android Tablets such as an SD Card Slot a home button, and S-Pen stylus support. Not sure if this is just Samsung blowing off steam...

Only a few more days till Valentine’s Day and being broke again for you the one you love. Still loving the fact that the Geezam blog has achieved the milestone of being awarded the Best Technology Blog at the Jamaica Blog Awards as chronicled by Kelroy in Geezam.com wins Best Technology Blog at Jamaica Blog Awards. The year’s moving so Fast! CES (Computer Electronics Show) 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada revealed yet again that the Technology World still punch drunk from Mobile Computing, Tablets and 4K TV’s. There were some moments, about which I’ll pen articles I’m waiting until this Kickstarter-esque projects flesh out into real products later in the year. Is it me, or did it seem that CES was mainly about Start-ups, with the big Tech heavyweights, Apple, Microsoft and Google M.I.A. The on...
