As you probably know, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was just released and is now available to buy all over. If you're itching to get your hands on one but were wishing that maybe someone would just give you one, then you might be in luck! Lloyd decided that he is going to give one of you your very own Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1! All you have to do to enter to win is show Lloyd how much you love him by creating a bit of fan art for him. Make it funny, make it serious, but definitely make it awesome. (Bonus points if you create it on your Android phone or tablet.) Once you've got your creation, post it in the forum below and tell us a bit about it (inspiration, what you drew it on, etc) as well as why you want to win the new Galaxy Note 10.1. We'll announce the winner at the beginning of next week. Good luck! Update to answer questions:- Sure you can enter a couple of drawings, but please put them all in one post. And if you go crazy and enter like 50 drawings you probably won't win because that's just nutty.- Contest is open worldwide. Usually, unless we specify US only or something,

Galaxy S3 and industrial robot star in the most beautiful commercial you’ve ever seen


Friday 05th of October 2012 / androidauthority.com
We all love to take on the other side here at Android Authority, especially when they actually deserve it. So we naturally enjoyed the little jabs that Samsung’s been taking at Apple, and especially the series of commercials where they make lighthearted fun of Apple followers.But sometimes you should just let the product do the talking. Show what it can do, why it’s amazing, and how it will improve the user’s life. Today we have a beautiful piece of art (I can’t make myself to call it an ad) that does just that – it shows what the Galaxy S3 is capable of.Commissioned by the Icelandic carrier Síminn, the clip below has been shot in its entirety with a Samsung Galaxy S3. We’ve seen short films recorded with the S3 before, but this one is the most impressive. Watch it in HD if you can.Moments from Harald Haraldsson on Vimeo.Created by visual artist and entrepreneur Harald Haraldsson, the video somehow reminds me of Portal. Anyway, if you have doubts that Haraldsson used the S3 to shoot it, there’s a behind the scenes video too. Check it out.Moments (Behind the Scenes) fro

Samsung to make a special announcement at SXSW


Tuesday 06th of March 2012 / talkandroid.com
Today, Samsung gave us their game plan for South By Southwest (SXSW) in Austin Texas. They’ve dangled a carrot in front of us, mentioning a “Special Announcement” on March 9 at 4pm. Samsung says that more details will be released soon, which leaves us wondering what they have up their sleeve. We’re all anxiously waiting for the official unveiling of the Galaxy S III, and for more hands-on time with the Galaxy Note 10.1. There is a very high chance that the announcement is not regarding either of those devices, though. Let us know what you think the announcement is about in the comments below.Also on Samsung’s agenda at SXSW is more time with the Galaxy Note, a phone with a 5.3-inch display and a stylus. They plan to show off the phone in the Austin Museum of Art, where “Samsung Mobile will integrate the Galaxy Note to show how technology, art and communication come together in new ways.” Very clever, Samsung.Skip over the break to read the full press release.At SXSW, Samsung will show how art, technology and communications come together with

Smartphones: How big is too big?


Saturday 01st of June 2013 / feedproxy.google.com
Alright guys, it’s time to have a serious discussion about our expectations from our smartphones.All the hubbub over the Galaxy Note II is understandable. Too big for my tastes, but after using a friend’s, I can honestly say that I see the merit and understand how the Note line claims a whopping 8% share of the Android user-base. The 5.5 inch display is hard to manage at first, but after acclimating, as long as you have somewhere to stow it when not in use, it can make sense for certain needs. At that sweet-spot in screen size I can also understand the desire for a stylus. The display is big enough to do some serious art or photo editing but still small enough to be portable and need something with a fine tip to be accurate. For heavy media consumers and creators, the Note line just makes sense.Now, even being an artist myself, I prefer the size of the Galaxy S III, 4 and Nexus phones. But would honestly consider getting a Note were I to start creating more with my phone. Why don’t I? I have a tablet.Lately the social sphere has been abuzz with news about 5.8, 5.9,

Samsung's Pen.UP is a great social network for people who love to create digital art


Sunday 10th of November 2013 / feedproxy.google.com
Whether you're sharing or just looking, Pen.UP is filled with great art from people just like you and meThe folks at Samsung love the S Pen on the Note series. If you've tried one, you can probably understand. It;s not a stylus, it an integral part of the device that can do some pretty wonderful things— including create some excellent digital art.To showcase all thisgreat work, Samsung has set up a unique social network that features original work from people just like you and me. Open to folks with a Note 10.1, Note 8, Note 3, Note 2, Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S3, Pen.Up is a lot like Instagram for the pictures you draw instead of the pictures you take with a camera. It's a great idea, and it's filled with some of the best artwork from creative Android users you'll find anywhere.It's also feature-rich. You can follow people, comment on their posts, even favorite their work to show how much you like it. Of course, they can do the same to you. Hashtags are supported (which is going to be important right very shortly— stay tuned) to make for easy sorting

Android music album art missing


Tuesday 01st of April 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I have a bunch of albums i uploaded to my SD card on my Android Samsung galaxy S3 verizon phone. when i go to open the default music player i most if not all of the album art is missing. what gives. I put .jpg images in the folders where the music is stored before i uploaded to the my phone. how can i fix this so the music player sees the album art and uses it accordingly. I do not want to use an Album art finder app to update the album art because what was the sense of adding a .jpg image to the folder in the first place. it also does not make sense that there are some albums art that is found but not others. what a mess. one more question in this same realm. I also have one artist that comes up unknown the artist is Bjork why does it come up unknown? is it because it is not spelled correctly , do i need to type the O in scands text. how can i type in scands text? any assitance is appreciated.
