Samsung Galaxy Tab gets the Exclusive 'Touch MTV' App

If you have any kind of dignity whatsoever, then surely you won’t be upset that your brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab didn’t come with the “Touch MTV” App. Let me explain. MTV Networks International and Samsung teamed up to develop this app aimed for the trendy-crowd, that just couldn’t miss the most recent re-runs of Jersey Shore and The Hills. Not saying that the “Touch MTV” app is necessarily a bad idea, considering these shows are what’s “in”, right? The good news is that this deal was strictly said in stone with MTV Networks International. So that means the folks over in Germany, Croatia, Holland, Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland will be the lucky one’s that will get first dibs on this super-awesome app. As for the rest of us in the States, consider ourselves lucky.

Samsung unveils 7-inch Super AMOLED Panels

Samsung is preparing for their new addition to their next tablet by debuting a 7-inch Super AMOLED panel at the FPD International exhibition in Japan in two weeks. Sporting a 1200 x 600 resolution, this display is certainly wider than the Galaxy Tab’s 1024 x 600 display. If you recall, there were rumors prior to the Galaxy Tab’s release that the tablet would come stock with a Super AMOLED display. Unfortunately that plan never came to fruition. Let’s wait and see what Samsung conjures up with these new crisp panels to show off.

Sprint offering $50 towards Media Hub with any Epic 4G or Galaxy Tab Purchase

As if you didn’t have enough reasons to go out and grab yourself an Epic 4G, Sprint has just thrown another sweet offer in our faces to entice us even more. Starting October 31st, Sprint is giving everyone who buys an Epic 4G a $50 credit to use towards the Samsung Media Hub. Upon purchase you’ll be sent a 10-digit promotion code via text message that you can use for most movies in the Media Hub. (Some restrictions apply)

This offer is only valid through January 8th, 2011 and has some fine print details to the deal we feel we should mention. The code must be used within 60 days after activating it, so as soon as you grab your first rental, you’re officially on the clock. Not a bad deal if you think about it. Word is that Sprint is also throwing in the same offer for the Samsung Galaxy Tab. It’s obvious that Samsung wants to get their Media Hub on the front lines, so what better way to get the ball rolling before the holidays?

US Cellular picks up the Samsung Galaxy Tab

There’s no stopping Samsung at this point. Now picking up US Cellular, the fifth carrier here in the States to offer the Galaxy Tab, Samsung surely has money on the mind and aims to keep it that way. Of course, US Cellular hasn’t announced pricing nor a release date, so we’re stuck guessing for the time being. Will they be able to top T-Mobile’s November 10th date for launch? We’ll soon find out.
