Samsung Unpacked — Liveblogging from two continents at 9 a.m. EDT Wednesday!


See what Samsung has to show us all while we liveblog from Berlin and New York

Tomorrow is going to be a pretty big deal for Android fans. Samsung is holding another Unpacked event — one so big it needs three venues to handle it all: Berlin, New York and Beijing. We expect to see the all new Galaxy Note 4, as well as a new, and more "independent" wearable in the Gear S and its SIM card slot. We also imagine there will be a surprise or two, because Samsung. You don't get to be the biggest smartphone maker in the world without having plenty of great products that people want.

We're going to be in both Berlin and New York, bringing everything Samsung has to say and show to you live and in realtime. Alex and Derek will be at the aptly named Tempodrome in beautiful downtown Berlin, while Phil and Andrew will be sitting pretty in New York's West Village.

Everyone will have laptops and cameras ready to go, and this is something you'll not want to miss! You'll find it right at the top of all the action here on the AC homepage. Join us!

What's all this stuff on the Chrome new tab window?

The new tab window on Chrome for Android helps you get more from your web browsing experience

If there's one thing I love about Chrome, Google's web browser, it's that it can provide pretty seamless transitions between my desktop and mobile web browsing experiences. If I have to leave my apartment before I finish reading an article, no problem. Chrome can sync the pages I have open on my desktop so I can just view them on my phone while out and about. I think that's pretty darn cool!

The new tab window is where the fun all starts on Chrome for mobile devices. Not only can you access pages you have open on your desktop, but you can also get pretty easy access to the pages you visit most and your bookmarks from here.
