Samsung launching Galaxy Tab 2, Galaxy S 2

New tablet and smartphone to be launched at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month

We love a good rumour or leak, and this time it's Samsung's plans for its Mobile World Congress (MWC) announcement in Barcelona next month.

The Samsung Hub blog has leaked a PR document that all but confirms Samsung will launch the Galaxy Tab 2 and the Galaxy S 2 in Barcelona on 13 February.

These rumours have been floating around the traps for some time. The Samsung Galaxy S 2 is likely to sport a dual-core processor (like LG's Optimus 2X), while there are suggestions the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 may come with a 10in screen, making it a larger device than the original 7in Galaxy Tab.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 will more than likely run Android 3.0 or "Honeycomb" which has specifically been designed for tablets, while the Galaxy S 2 should come with Android 2.3 or "Gingerbread", the latest Android version available for smartphone devices.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
