Samsung’s 10.1N Apple-sidestep slate gets German fondle

Samsung’s 10.1N Apple-sidestep slate gets German fondle

Samsung's tablet workaround in Germany has made it into stores and into reviewers' hands, with the Galaxy Tab 10.1N bearing a new bezel design to bypass Apple's injunction. German would-be tableteers hoping for a slice of Samsung's original Galaxy Tab 10.1 had been frustrated, after Apple managed to secure a preliminary sales injunction based on claimed design similarities between it and the iPad.

This week we've already seen one tablet that's set to be nearly indestructible AND able to run Android in a single bound, now here's another - this one goes by the name Fujitsu Arrows LTE Tab and is able to be submerged under water completely, not just sprayed a bit in the face. It's a 10.1-inch display having 1280 x 800 pixel resolution toting Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet at the moment, and inside you'll find Tegra! Not Tegra 3, unfortunately, that honor is thus far reserved for the ASUS amongst us. UPDATE: There's been some confusion about the chip inside this device - though the video below says NVIDIA, inside this tablet is actually the lovely Texas Instruments OMAP4430, seen in quite a few excellent Androids as of late - take note!

This week the folks at Panasonic have revealed one tablet and named a second, the first being the Toughpad A1, a 10.1-inch Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet with a processor from no less than Marvell, the most elusive chipmaker of all. Of course Marvell has appeared in mobile devices before, but the last time we spoke about them in regards to a mobile device was in the Vizio Tablet, then before that was a Chinese smartphone and on the Chumby 8. Here we see Marvell sitting inside the tablet with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, this aside 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a microSD card slot for expansion up to 32GB more.

We know a piece of the FCC ID, that being IHDP56MJ3, the serial number KFLC140080, and that's about it. Motorola was the first group to be chosen by Google to run the very first tablet-based Android system as a hero - are they up to some sweet designs once more?
