  • Samsung Focus S snapped in the wild sipping on micro-USB juice

    Can’t say that we’re caught off guard with this one. Only two weeks ago, AT&T announced the first three members of its Windows Phone Mango lineup, charting out an Autumn debut for the handsets, but only giving us a glimpse of the Titan. So, it should come as no shock to see Samsung’s update to its popular WP device, the Focus S, getting its charge on in the wild. The leaked shot over on PocketNow, gives us a tilted preview of the 4.3-inch phone, the usual offering of three capacitive buttons and its sleek, rounded edges. There’s not much in the way of gadget porn here considering the lone, off-center image, however, we do officially know that that currently unlit screen boasts a Super AMOLED Plus display and, lurking beneath it, is a 1.4GHz processor. An official street date has yet to be set for this 4G phone (the company didn’t specify if this would be LTE-ready), but expect to see it hit the orange-colored carrier sometime very soon.

  • Must See HDTV (September 26th – October 2nd)

    After last week’s slew of premieres there’s still a few new shows popping up this week, as well as season premieres of old favorites (Dexter, Mythbusters). Transformers: Dark of the Moon makes its Blu-ray debut on Friday but with no 3D or special features it’ll have to wait to top our list. Look below for the highlights this week, followed after the break by our weekly listing of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and videogames.

    Luther
    The second season of this British detective show already finished airing in the UK but it’s six episode run is just getting started this week on BBC America. The Wire’s Idris Elba stars as DCI John Luther, an investigator who is as troubles as he is effective in tracking down killers, rapists and other unsavory characters. There’s a dozen crime procedurals to choose from, but this is one of the few that rises above the rest of the pack. If you can’t get enough of accents and tea, check out the season finale of Dr. Who and series premiere of Bedlam Saturday night.
    (September 28th, BBC America, 10PM)

    Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection
    While the original release of Ico predates this site, its followup Shadow of the Colossus had us excited even when it was only in 480p. This week, both return in HD (and 3D) on the PS3, coming back for the first time on hardware that can actually handle creator Fumito Ueda’s vision. The two adventure games are some of the more unique gaming experiences you’ll find, whether or not you gave them a chance on the PS2 they’re definitely worth checking out this time around, check for a couple trailers after the break.
    ($39.99 on Amazon, September 27th)

    Happy Endings
    This comedy joined ABC’s lineup last year as a midseason replacement and quickly snagged a spot in our DVR queue with a hilarious ensemble of characters. While the show’s premise wasn’t a standout (bride leaves groom at the altar, we follow the group as they try to stay friends afterwards) the writing is spot on and gained enough a following to come back for season two, starting this week.
    (September 28th, ABC, 9:30PM)

  • Kindle Fire tablet purportedly on tap for Wednesday, set to ship in November

    “Kindle Fire.” Can’t say that’s the name we would’ve thrown together if given five minutes to dwell and assured that we’d take on absolutely no risk at all for it failing, but hey — who are we to question Jeff Bezos? TechCrunch is keeping the Kindle tablet rumors fresh with a new helping of intel, hitting the wires just two days prior to the outfit’s September 28th press event. According to the publication, “Fire” (mocked up above) was chosen in order to differentiate it from the e-ink siblings that’ll sell alongside of it, and we’re told to expect a mind-numbing amount of content deals to make it ever more attractive in a realm that iOS currently dominates. Moreover, a dual-core Texas Instruments OMAP chip is now being tipped, and if all goes well, the sub-$300 device should ship in November. Meanwhile, B&N engineers are reportedly toiling away on the Nook Color 2, and we wouldn’t be shocked in the least to see it hurry into an announcement just to phunk with Amazon’s flow. We’ll be there live on Wednesday to break it all down — water sprinklers in tow, naturally.
