Motorola DROID RAZR M 4G LTE leaks again in detail

Verizon's next DROID appears to have leaked once more this morning in a hands-on treatment with assurances that the Snapdragon S4 processor inside it is "fantastic." Over at Engadget this souce has noted that the lithium polymer battery inside was able to withstand a full day's heavy usage even with 4G LTE active, and the casing is ready for battle action as well.

Snapdragon S4 greatness touted for Windows RT tablets from Samsung and Dell

It would appear that Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 processor line is making the rounds this year at IFA 2012, today appearing in both Samsung and Dell's Windows RT tablets. The first of these is the Samsung ATIV Tab 10-inch tablet (check out our hands-on experience) with 1366 x 768 pixel resolution and an 8.9mm thin body. Then there's the Dell XPS 10 which we got eyes-on time with this week as well - complete with 10-inch multi-touch display and keyboard dock for converting the device into a notebook.

The rest of the device looks rather like a Galaxy Nexus, and certainly hasn't changed a whole lot since we saw an earlier iteration just a few months back.

Sony Tap 20 oversized home tablet hands-on

Is 20-inches too much for you? Sony thinks every home doesn't just need a coffee table tablet, but a tablet scaled more like a coffee table: the Tap 20 takes Windows 8 and touch to all-in-one PC levels. In fact, the 20-inch device sits somewhere in-between AIO and tablet, offering 10-finger multitouch control of Microsoft's new OS for something targeted at browsing, casual gaming and multimedia.

Sony VAIO Duo 11 hands-on

Sony VAIO Duo 11 hands-on

Sony likes to do things differently, and the VAIO Duo 11 is its unusual entrant to the Windows 8 tablet market. Billed as a "hybrid sliding PC" the Duo 11 looks, at first glance, like a chunky tablet, but pull up just above the front-facing webcam and the touchscreen slides back and up to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. It's an approach we've seen before, from the ASUS Eee Pad Slider, but here running Microsoft's full Windows platform and with a digital stylus for handwriting and sketching.

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 hands-on

Lenovo's ThinkPad Tablet 2 isn't new - the company announced it officially earlier this month - but we had our first time to get up close and personal with the Windows 8 business-focused slate at IFA. Unlike Lenovo's Android models, the ThinkPad Tablet 2 is Lenovo very much on form: it's clearly from the ThinkPad stable, for instance, and is filled with details that suggest the company was thinking about their business users first and foremost.
