Samsung Galaxy S vs. HD2 vs. Zune HD

As we learned at Samsung's Galaxy S event in New York City last night, Samsung is very proud of their Super AMOLED screen. We took it for a spin and compared it with the old HTC HD2 and the Zune HD. The contrast and black blacks are comparable to the Zune's regular AMOLED screen, but the Samsung Super AMOLED screen seems much nicer under the lights. It looks to have deeper contrast as well.

While operating system updates for the iPhone and the Nexus One take the cake today, there are some other developments of which you should be aware of.

Microsoft’s Zune HD which debuted all the way back in September got a price drop today at Amazon and Newegg which might only be a temporary drop. It's hard to say.

Twiter application updated

A big story has been the release of a twitter applicaiton for the Zune HD was that the timeline on the device would filter and curse words that would would say. For example it would look like, F***. Microsoft has decided to change this because of people complaining and version 1.1 was released and there are no filters. It doesn't matter to me, but I guess your better off making everyone happy.

Zune HD Gaming

That Tegra chip is no joke -- the graphics in PGR: Ferrari Edition are easily on par with the PSP and quite possibly better, with intricate textures, high-quality reflections, and smooth framerates. The other games aren't nearly as intense, but they're just as smooth. Best of all? They're free -- although you will have to look at a Zune ad while they load. Not the worst tradeoff in the world, but we'd love to see what paid app developers could do if Microsoft would open this beast up. Check the video after the break.

Xbox Live Zune HD Video

The new capabilities are available to Xbox Live Gold members—although Xbox Live Silver member can use the new services for free from November 20 to until November 23, just to see what they might be missing. Xbox Live Gold memberships start at $50 per year, which works out to a little over $4 per month; other pricing plans include $7.99 for one month and $19.99 for three months.

Integrating popular social networking services gives the already-successful Xbox Live service another edge on its competitors…however, don’t expect Sony to rest on its laurels: all indications are that rudimentary Facebook support is coming to the PlayStation 3 any day now.
