Samsung Galaxy S II hands-on [Video]

The Samsung Galaxy S II has a lot to live up to. Its predecessor, the Galaxy S, took the top spot for Android devices in the US, was picked up by most carriers, and helped push Samsung to all-time record revenues in 2010. Thankfully, Samsung hasn't taken the easy route and given the Galaxy S II a simple polish; instead, the new smartphone is a hugely impressive powerhouse. More hands-on feedback after the cut.

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.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play hands-on [Video]

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.
