Samsung has finally unveiled its next generation tablet “Galaxy Tab 10.1″ at Mobile World Congress. Contrary to the rumors, the tablet is called Galaxy Tab 10.1 officially instead of Galaxy Tab 2 or II.
It features dual core Tegra 2 processor, front facing 2 megapixel camera, 8 megapixel camera at back, gyroscope, Accelerometer, digital compass and proximity sensor. Empowered by Honeycomb (android 3.0) Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be available with 16GB or or 32GB of storage.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Specifications:
The HP Topaz tablet will be sold as TouchPad. This tablet will feature WebOS, a 9.7-inch 1024×768 multitouch display protected by oleo phobic Gorilla Glass, a 1.2GHz processor and it is powered by Qualcomm’s dual-core MSM8660.
The HP TouchPad is HP’s first webOS tablet. The device has an ample screen real estate of 9.7 inches, with resolution of 768×1024 pixels. The TouchPad has been a much-anticipated device, as it is capable of unleashing the full potential of the webOS platform and its outstanding multitasking capabilities. In the HP TouchPad we see webOS 3.0 for the first time. This latest edition of the OS comes with lots of changes so as to make the interface more functional and comfortable to use on a big tablet screen.
With its vibrant 9.7-inch diagonal flush capacitive multitouch display, virtual keyboard, instant-on access, support for Adobe® Flash® Player 10.1 beta in the browser and access to thousands of webOS applications,(2) TouchPad works the way you do and is designed not just for fun but for mobile productivity. It’s ideal for anyone who wants the benefits of the amazing webOS platform on a much bigger scale.
The device measures 190 x 240 x 13.7mm, weighs around 1.5lbs, eight hours of battery life, options of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of built-in flash, 512MB RAM, has a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera, two Beats Audio speakers, as well as 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR connectivity. Optional WWAN for HSPA and LTE are expected with CDMA possible later. Sensors include an accelerometer, eCompass, a 3-axis Gyro for gaming, a light sensor, and a microphone.
HP launched two new webOS smartphones via their special event, the tiniest webOS phone ever, the HP Veer slider, and the powerful successor to the Palm Pre 2 called the Pre 3. On a side note, its funny saying "successor to the Palm Pre 2" especially since its predecessor only recently went up for pre-order.
Moving on, HP Palm have released two official videos, one for each of the webOS phones. Before getting to the videos lets have a quick run through of the specs.
The HP Veer features 512MB RAM, 8GB storage, 2.6-inch 320 x 400 sub-HVGA display, 5-megapixel camera and 910 mAh battery.Check out their video below.
Palm Pre 3
Next up is the powerful Palm Pre 3 with a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 512MB RAM, 3.6-inch WVGA display, 8GB and 16GB storage option and a 1,230 mAh battery. Check out their video below.
The ViewSonic ViewPad 10 Pro is another device offering flexibility. We first saw this at CES but were reminded after ViewSonic improved the device to include 3G. The ability to dual-boot Windows and Android… is why you gotta love it!
t is powered by Intel’s Oak Trail platform, though the exact processor used is still a mystery.
The display is a capacitive multi-touch panel (obviously) with a diagonal of 10 inches and a native resolution of 1,024 x 600 pixels.
There is also mention of integrated WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G, though this is unsurprising considering that having wireless network access is more or less compulsory for slates.
The other major asset is the dual-boot functionality, as ViewSonic threw in not just Windows 7 Professional (for business use) but Also Google’s Android 2.2 (for social entertainment).
“Last month Deloitte predicted, in its annual sector forecast, that UK companies will buy more than 10 million tablet devices in 2011,” said Derek Wright, product marketing manager at ViewSonic Europe.
“ViewSonic is well placed to capitalize on this market and offers users the best of both worlds from one device” he added.
“Dual-boot enables users to access business software that only runs on Windows and investigate Android without switching completely. Many users enjoy the familiarity of Windows but want to get to know Android and configure their preferences before using it more widely.”
The product will be on show at MWC
Take for example the ViewSonic V350 for the world traveler. It lets you put two SIM cards into one device, meaning you can take advantage of various voice/data plans depending on the country and SIMs you’re currently using. You’ll hear more from me about Android phones, and phones in general, offering more flexibility for international support. Until carriers get it together and to it themselves, I’m glad to see a company like Viewsonic try to address the issue as best they can.
The V350 is nothing groundbreaking, but it does offer a 3.5-inch display of HVGA resolution (no word on multi-touch yet), 5-megapixel autofocus camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS with A-GPS and a MicroSD card slot. It runs Android Froyo. The dual-sim technology allows the phone to be on two separate networks at the same time.
Nokia released a statement that resonates louder than a bomb in the smartphone industry – the number one phone manufacturer is teaming up with Microsoft in a "strategic alliance" that will make Windows Phone Nokia’s "principal smartphone strategy". This news is shaking the smartphone industry as we write this, and will surely continue to do so in the foreseeable future.
Even after this news LG doesn’t seems to be backing of from its Windows 7 Phones
It is also a shocking news for INTEL as it was to deliver low power consuming atom processors to Nokia. Now Nokia seems to be going for ARM processors
