In addition to the Galaxy SII, RFMD said back in February that it was going to have Powersmart AND a front-end module in the Galaxy Tab 10.1 ( I hope you guys didn't forget that), and that tablet is set to launch within the next week or so; and actually Gamestop had them in stock as of yesterday, so sales for that tablet will be on record for the December quarter. Even a decent showing with the tab will do us plenty good.

This article makes me want to go out and buy AAPL stock. Endless possibilities if they can link it all together. I already think the Iphone has changed the way we live and we havent even gotten into the digital wallet, Apple TV and full on gaming that is possible with the Apple products.
Nice update. Samsung has an advantage here, since you don't need an additional device ($99.00 more for the Apple TV) to get the functionality their tvs already provide. Besides that, Apple TV has a maximum resolution of 720p, compared with the full 1080p the samsungs allow you...and I think apple will fix this...
Well, actually Apple tv is just a box that connects to your wi-fi home network (by wire or wireless) and through HDMI to any TV. It seems apple lost interest in that device for a while, but are now pushing it again.
Perhaps it was my misinterpretation, but it seemed like Samsung hadn't fully released the Galaxy Tab in the U.S. yet due to the injunctions set again them by Apple. I believe T-mobile is just offering the tab this upcoming week, for example. But if you have a better understanding, then please correct me. And I was referencing both 3G and 4G...I believe 4G was unveiled sometime in September, but I wasn't aware of it actually being sold yet, again in part to the possible injunctions by Apple, as is being down overseas. I can't even find any projections for how many have been sold anywhere on the internet. But again, enlighten me if I have blurted out filth, unknowingly.
