Samsung NEW Galaxy names: Grand,Premier and Next, just registered.
Samsung filed applications for the trademarking of names such as Galaxy Grand, Galaxy Premier, and Galaxy Next.

The trademarking of these three names follows a similar move from Samsung made for Galaxy Thunder, Galaxy Express, and Galaxy Accelerate. 
One thing that should be noted here is that Samsung did use some of these names for its devices in other countries around the world, but not in the United States. 

Samsung plans on re-using these monikers, though it remains to be seen what products will be pushed to shelves with these attached to them.

2012: Amazon to launch 10.1 and 7 inch new tablets.
According to Digitimes, Amazon will ship a 10.1 inch in July. This news comes from the supply chain, like HannsTouch who is a new supplier of touch sensors in addition to Wintek and TPK Holding, while excluding J Touch from the supplier list.
The 10.1-inch model is likely to be priced at US$249-299.
Amazon is quoting two 7 inch models, one to be priced $199 for shipments in late Q2 and the other $169 which is not so sure to get out to reality, because the suppliers are reluctant to offer quotes for low-margin hardware products.
2012 Amazon tablets PC sales forecast target is 20 million units.

Australia: Despite Apple is offering customers refund for the not 4G capable new iPad, the ACCC sues them.
                     The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is seeking court orders to stop Apple from promoting its new iPad as 4G compatible. The watchdog is making an application to the Federal Court in Melbourne for orders against Apple for alleged contraventions of the Australian Consumer Law (ACL). 
According to the ACCC, Apple's recent promotion of the new "iPad with WiFi + 4G" is misleading because it represents to Australian consumers that the product can, with a Sim card, connect to a 4G mobile data network in Australia, when this is not the case. 
The regulator is seeking urgent interlocutory relief to ensure consumers are made aware of the correct technical capabilities of this device. Additionally the ACCC is seeking final orders including injunctions, pecuniary penalties, corre…
