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.

Dynabook Portégé® X30L-G notebook

I have had the pleasure of owning notebooks from Dynabook’s predecessor Toshiba for both work and leisure in the past. Toshiba’s attention to quality of build and design of the notebooks is second to none. The re-branding to Dynabook and the launch of the new range was completed in early 2019. I am pleased to confirm that not only did Dynabook further refine what Toshiba has left off; they have set a new benchmark for the ultra-light notebook category.

MSI P65

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
