Wondering when the next Samsung Galaxy S devices will be released? Keep reading to learn the latest rumors. We also have news on a crazy iPad case and some new Dell products.
Rumors of the new Samsung Galaxy S6 devices have been circulating like the strongest virus, but we haven’t heard about possible release dates until today. Well, they are not really release dates, but separate information that is likely to be related to large events.
A Samsung employee has leaked a document that displays some periods of time in which employees can’t ask for vacations. These would be March 22-30 and April 19-27. We are not sure why these blackouts are set in place, but we have to assume something big is happening within the company, and what is bigger than their flagship launches?
Opinion: We expect the original Samsung Galaxy S6 to launch first, in March, followed by the Galaxy S6 Edge in April. What do you think? Is this even about the Samsung Galaxy S devices?
Tactus has beena round for a while, but their technology hasn’t quite taken off until their latest announcement. Let us introduce you to the Tactus Phorm, an iPad Mini case that can turn your flat touchscreen into a physical keyboard of sorts.
The case adds a film on top of your screen. After activating the physical keyboard, some button-like bubbles pop up on top of your keys. These provide actual tactile feedback and can be put away just as easily as they were activated.
Tactus aims to launch this product during the summer with a price of $149, but if you pre-order it you can get it for $99. They are also working on a version for the iPad Air, the iPhone 6+ and Android tablets.
Opinion: Physical keyboards have been phased out by the industry, but we know many of you still love the feedback and feel that an actual keyboard can offer. I don’t think it’s a replacement for solid, real keyboards, but the Phorm could be a good acquisition in an age in which keyboards don’t seem to be coming back.
Dell is not only a big player in the computing industry, but they have always been an important provider of education technologies. I remember all my school computers being Dells or Macs, which says a lot. Today, the laptop giant introduces a series of products meant to take over classrooms.
The first is the Dell Chromebook 11, which is to be released on February 12th for $249.99. They also have announced a couple education tablets named the Dell Venue 10 Pro will hit the market come March 3rd for $329.99, or $379.99 with a keyboard. Meanwile, the Venue 10 will be released in the Spring at an unknown price.
Those who want a fuller computer can opt for a Dell Latitude 11 Education Series, which will start at only $299 and will launch in June. And for the professors there is also the $1799.99 Dell Interactive Projector S510.
Opinion: Great options for educations, but I can honestly say the rest of us have great alternatives for these. This is why these education announcements never get me too excited. They are not exactly stronger or cheaper. Usually they are simply more resistant.
