Mention of the device - presumably a version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 with stylus input - is made on Samsung's official blog, and while it's possibly a mistype, other signs point to it being a legitimate product.

Andrew Bell Android Big Box Edition toys arrive in stores

Andrew Bell Android Big Box Edition toys arrive in stores

Without so much as a "gang-way!" you'll find the Big Box Edition 1 set of Android toys in stores this week, with Android Bell himself having had little to no warning of their release. They're all official, indeed they are the real deal and made by Bell himself, but sometimes distribution lines can do odd tricks in the background, you know? These Big Box Edition toys will not be part of the limited edition lines you've seen thus far, nor will they be part of the special edition lines - and they're not blind boxed!

LG Optimus 3D 2 photo leaked, details included

Leading up to Mobile World Congress 2012, we're seeing heaps of leaked images and details of devices in the mobile world, the latest being the LG Optimus 3D 2. This device is set to be the next generation 3D device from LG, the first being of course the LG Optimus 3D, and is set to trump the first edition with specifications that make it thinner, lighter, and as you can see - whiter. This device will also do away with capacitive buttons if our sources are correct, the front of the device relying on buttons from the operating system instead - but will it be Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich?

Apple will dominate MWC… and it won’t even be there

Apple will dominate MWC… and it won’t even be there

If there's one thing Apple knows, it's how to grab attention, and the company looks on track to dominate Mobile World Congress this year despite having no official presence at the show. Talk of a third-gen iPad event in the first week of March is particularly believable, not just because it fits with previous rumors but because it gives Apple the chance to bulldoze its name into headlines during one of the biggest mobile events of the year. It's certainly not the first time Apple has cast its shadow, though - this is, after all, the company whose iPhone 4 won Best Mobile Device at MWC 2011 without even showing up in Barcelona.

This reveal will end up being the first time we've seen a quad-core System on Chip working on a device smaller than a tablet, and in true classic fashion, will mark one year exactly since we first laid eyes on the original announcement of Tegra 3, then code-named Project Kal-El. Superman has since landed on the Asus Transformer Prime and will soon find its way onto several other tablets, also perhaps being released at this same set of events.
