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.

Sony Ericsson's XPERIA Play has been so well leaked already, there's a strange sense of familiarity with the gaming smartphone despite it having only made its official debut at MWC 2011 today. Hands-on, it's an odd combination of the familiar from Android and PSP, and during gameplay it certainly feels fast enough. We demo'd Bruce Lee: Dragon Warrior, FIFA '10 and Asphalt 6, and all three were slick and responsive.

Intel blindsided by Nokia Windows Phone deal; N9-01 could debut at MWC 2011

Nokia's deal with Microsoft took up most of the news cycle on Friday - there's always our "Everything you need to know" roundup, if you're feeling behind the curve - and it looks like the revelations aren't stopping now. Amid New York Stock Exchange share prices diving 15.1-percent on Friday as the market failed to be quite so enthused as Stephen Elop and Steve Ballmer, there's also TechCrunch speculation that Intel - Nokia's MeeGo partner - knew nothing of the Windows Phone deal prior to its Friday announcement.
