Lenovo IdeaPad K1 and ThinkPad Tablet hands-on

Lenovo has launched its two first attempts at Android 3.1 Honeycomb tablets, the IdeaPad K1 and ThinkPad Tablet, and we met up with the company to grab some hands-on time with both models. Targeted at consumers and at enterprise, respectively, the K1 and ThinkPad slates each tick most of the Tegra 2 Honeycomb boxes we've already seen from rival tablets; however, Lenovo also has a few tricks to differentiate them. Read on for our first-impressions.

Motorola PHOTON 4G Hands-On [Video]

At a press event today in NYC, Motorola unveiled their new PHOTON 4G Android smartphone that looks to be a successor to the ATRIX 4G. The device has much of the same innards but sports a whole new form factor with a diamond-shaped body. We had the opportunity to get one of the first hands-on play with it. Continue after the cut for all the photos and a video.

Galaxy Tab 10.1 Review (Limited Edition)

Galaxy Tab 10.1 Review (Limited Edition)

Samsung helped lead the Android tablet charge last year, with the original Galaxy Tab, a 7-inch slate which even Google admitted may have been released before the OS was ready. Now, with Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets like the XOOM, G-Slate and Eee Pad Transformer on the market, Samsung is back with its second attempt, the larger Galaxy Tab 10.1. Heavily reworked - even after its first official appearance - in order to better compete with the iPad 2, Samsung has high hopes that this is the slender slate to knock Apple off its pedestal. SlashGear brought back the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Limited Edition white version from Google I/O 2011 this week; check out the full review after the cut.

T-Mobile G2x unboxing and hands-on

T-Mobile G2x unboxing and hands-on

The T-Mobile G2x may be brand new on virtual shelves yesterday, but we're not exactly unfamiliar with the Android smartphone. Announced officially back at CTIA 2011 last month, and launched as the LG Optimus 2X a couple of months before that (for the European market), the dual-core handset has already built itself something of a following. The T-Mobile G2x variant has landed on the SlashGear test bench: read on for our first-impressions.

Hannspree SN10T1 tablet hands-on [Video]

Hannspree's Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet, the SN10T3, isn't expected to hit the market until Q3 2011, but the company had the freshly-released SN10T1 on show here at IFA 2011 today. Based around a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 touchscreen and NVIDIA's Tegra 2 processor, the slate may run Android 2.2 Froyo but it's well hidden under a custom UI. Still, that decision has left the SN10T1 missing a few key features which may take some of the shine off of its low price tag.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer first-impressions [Video]

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer first-impressions [Video]

If you'd asked us yesterday which Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet we were most excited about, we'd probably have said Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Tab 10.1, or maybe its smaller 8.9 sibling. Now we're not so sure. SlashGear caught up with ASUS today for the official launch of the Eee Pad Transformer, the company's 10.1-inch Tegra 2 tablet that can be optionally paired with a detachable, battery-toting keyboard dock. Announced back at CES 2011, and promptly lost amid the flurry of similar slates, it turns out that ASUS could well have a winner on its hands. Read on for our first-impressions.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 hands-on [Video]

Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 all but leaked in its entirety over the weekend, but we were still excited to see what the company had done to bring the original Galaxy Tab concept up to speed with Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Making its debut at MWC 2011 today, and set to hit the Asia and European markets in March, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 may not have a Samsung CPU powering it - NVIDIA's Tegra 2 does the crunching duties instead - but it still manages to distinguish itself somewhat from the XOOM.

Click through to watch our hands-on video of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
