Dell IFA 2012 Wrap-Up

Today's the second major day of news from IFA 2012, and while Samsung and Sony both got their time in the spotlight yesterday (Samsung in particular had a lot to talk about, but Sony had some big announcements as well), today it's Dell's turn. It seems that everyone is jumping on the Windows 8 and Windows RT train lately, and Dell is no exception. Today it revealed a handful of new devices that will be making friends with Windows 8 and Windows RT.

ZTE Grand X IN appears as first ICS smartphone with Intel Inside

This week at IFA 2012 the folks at ZTE have introduced a brand new fabulous-looking Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone with an Intel Medfield processor inside. This device has an Atom X2460 under the hood for next-level processing power and works with a casing that's quite unique to the world of smartphone in its hatched-back battery cover physical patterning. 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

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 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.

Lenovo IdeaTab S2110 hands-on

Lenovo IdeaTab S2110 hands-on

Lenovo had a trio of Android tablets for IFA 2012, with the most interesting being its IdeaTab S2110. Like many Ice Cream Sandwich slates we've seen in recent days, the S2110 comes with a useful keyboard dock that turns the tablet into a mini-notebook; unlike most, that dock also includes a battery for prolonging runtime. We snatched some hands-on time to see how it shapes up.

Sony 84-inch 4K Bravia 84X900 TV hands-on

Sony 84-inch 4K Bravia 84X900 TV hands-on

Who needs windows at home, when you can have an 84-inch TV running at 3,840 x 2,160 resolution on the wall instead. Sony's new 4K Bravia 84X900 is a masterpiece of overkill (though we wouldn't object if Sony sent us one for "long term loan") but, as overkill goes, it's one that heralds the next phase in super-high-definition home entertainment. We stood in awe of the pixel-packing behemoth at IFA; read on for our first impressions.

Lenovo Ideatab S2110, A2109, and A2107 get IFA unveiling with Android ICS

The folks at Lenovo have re-revealed the Ideatab S2110 at IFA 2012 this week, making another tablet hook up with the keyboard crew to make a convertible tablet/notebook for the Android universe along with a couple of lovely smaller tablets by the name of A2109 and A2107. The S2110 tablet has a 10.1-inch IPS LCD display with 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and 420nit brightness attached to a keyboard dock that'll have to flipping back and forth between tablet and notebook at will. You'll have 10-finger touchscreen abilities here as well as a powerful Qualcomm 8060A/8260A 1.5GHz dual-core processor (aka a dual-core Snapdragon S4) under the hood.
