At Mobile World Congress, Samsung announced the Galaxy S II smartphone and Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet. Both mobile devices have dual-core processors.
The new smartphone features a 4.27-inch Super AMOLED display with 800 x 480 resolution; dual-core Samsung processor; 8-megapixel rear-facing and 2-megapixel front-facing cameras; Android 2.3 (Gingerbread); 1080p video recording; Bluetooth 3.0+HS; and HSPA+ network support, among others.
The original Tab's successor is getting a screen-size boost -- to 10.1 inches. So Samsung says it: Bigger is better. The new tablet will run Android 3.0 (aka Honeycomb). Among other features: 1GHZ dual-core processor; 10.1-inch TFT (right, not AMOLED) display with 1280 by 800 resolution; two cameras -- rear-facing 8-megapixels with LED flash; front-facing 2MP; 16GB or 32GB internal memory; Flash 10.1; 1080p video recording; and support for HSPA+ 21Mbps networks. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 measures 246.2 mm by 170.4 mm by 10.9 mm and weighs 599 grams. At least in the initial press release, Samsung did not announce US availability. The device will come to Vodafone in Europe next month.
"Vodafone customers in over 20 markets around the world will be the first to get the GALAXY Tab 10.1 when it goes on sale this spring," Patrick Chomet, a Vodafone group director, said in a statement.
