Not to be outdone by the big 4 carriers, U.S. Cellular and Samsung announced that a "Galaxy S device" will also be hitting the regional carrier, too.  Not 100 percent sure of a model name, or a case design yet, but given the recent news from Samsung it should be another stunner with the 1GHz...

Sprint Hero, Moment won't get Froyo

We imagine there are quite a few pitchforks being raised right about now. Sprint dropped the bad news on Twitter that while the new Evo 4G will be getting Android 2.2 (which was already announced anyway), the Samsung Moment and HTC Hero will not. Sorry, folks. That's just the way it is. But the...

Samsung Galaxy S rooted, but it ain't easy

The good news: A rooted kernel has been hacked onto the Samsung Galaxy S, which is good because we're expecting a spate of devices from Sammy any time now in the U.S. The bad news: T'wasn't easy. Some are reporting bootloops, others are getting things to work with some quick commands during the...

Screen showdown -- AMOLED vs. LCD vs. SAMOLED in direct sunlight
