To qualify, you either sign a two-year contract or use AT&T’s NEXT service – not a real big setback if you were going to get the phone anyway. But there is one other catch; the Wi-Fi tablet will need to be added to an existing AT&T Mobile Share plan which costs $10 a month.
Separately, AT&T also said it will give a $100 AT&T Promotion Card to anyone who trades in an eligible smartphone and purchases a new device through AT&T Next. Both promotions will end on January 9th of 2014.

“People familiar with the matter” told the Wall Street Journal that the partnership will see Samsung become the “official provider” of NBA technology. As such, officials will get LCD monitors to review calls during a game while teams will apparently be presented with tablets to look at plays.
In return, the NBA will supposedly deliver custom content for Samsung’s collections of tablets and internet-connected Smart TVs.
The National Basketball Association– which has previously enjoyed partnerships with both Hewlett Packard and Chinese appliance maker Haier – is no stranger to tablets.

Founded in 2007, Connect Assistance provides home Internet assistance for French telecom company SFR where technical engineers troubleshoot computer, phone lines, Neufbox Internet-enabled television hardware, peripherals, and associated software. The company boasts 1,200 experts that service the country.
While service technicians initially used laptops and smartphones, executives wanted ways to improve efficiency and track home visits as they were happening.

Samsung's Galaxy S line of smartphones are best-sellers, while its Android-based Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Note tablets are considered among the very top challengers to the iPad.

Prices will rise to $299 for the 8-inch model and to $399 for the 10-inch version. Pre-ordering is expected to open on June 25.
Samsung announced the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 in May and added to the collection with the two bigger models earlier this month.
The 7-inch Galaxy Tab has a 1024 x 600 resolution display, a dual-core 1.2GHz Samsung Exynos processor, runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and comes with 1GB of RAM, 8GB to 16GB of storage (expandable via micro SD) and two cameras.
The two larger models have the same resolution display (1280 x 800), run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and offer 16GB to 32GB of storage (as well as a micro SD card slot) and dual-facing [...]
Just last month, Samsung released the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, but a bigger display version appears to be well along in the pipeline as well.
The Tab 3 8.0 looks the same, only the bezel is thinner and the device has more level sensors, according to a report in SamMobile which says to to expect the tablet to be out by the end of next month.
Key features include Android 4.22, 8-inch WXGA 12 x 800 TFT display, 1.5 GHz Dual-Core, 1.5 GB, 16 GB + MicroSD port for up to 64GB of storage. Micro USB and 3.5 mm ear jack and two cameras, 1.3 megapixels (front) and 5 megapixels (back).
On paper at least, the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) model is not so different from its predecessor, the $250 Galaxy Tab 2.
There is a 7-inch 1024 x 600 resolution display, dual-facing cameras, 1GB of RAM and a slot for a microSD card (which can accommodate up to 64GB of memory, an improvement from 32GB on the previous model).
That is where the similarities end though, with the Galaxy Tab 3 packing a more powerful 1.2GHz dual-core processor (compared to a dual-core 1GHz chipset on the Galaxy Tab 2) and now offering an option for 16GB or 8GB of internal storage. The device also has a smaller bezel than the Galaxy Tab 2 as well as slightly smaller dimensions.
But the redesigned Galaxy Tab 10.1N apparently didn’t go far enough for Apple which is seeking an injunction that would prevent Samsung Electronics from selling the modified tablet. A hearing on the matter is set for June 5, according to a report by the IDG News Service.
Samsung changed the bezel and added speaker grills to the front in the Galaxy Tab 10.1N to try and accommodate the earlier court’s ruling.
Apple actually already lost an attempt to ban the Galaxy Tab 10.1 when a regional court in Düsseldorf ruled in February that its design was sufficiently different. It is that ruling Apple is trying to have [...]
