Samsung unveils Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with Ice Cream Sandwich

Samsung unveils Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with Ice Cream Sandwich

Samsung's hitting fast and hard with a gamut of press releases just hours before Mobile World Congress. The latest is the update to their flagship tablet, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, which has been somewhat lazily christened the Galaxy Tab 2, 10.1 inch version. From a hardware perspective it looks like an updated version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1N, the German variant introduced to curb Apple's enthusiasm for patent litigation. On the inside, it gets Ice Cream Sandwich with Samsung's TouchWiz UI skin.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 spotted in pre-MWC ads

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 spotted in pre-MWC ads

Well well well: this would appear to be some pretty solid evidence that Samsung's latest stylus kick is getting even more plus-sized come Monday. Swedish blogger Anders Frick spotted a couple of large-scale advertisements in and around the Fira de Barcelona, where the first pre-show events for Mobile World Congress are set to begin in just a few hours. While he was clearly doing a little surreptitious snooping, what he caught with his camera is pretty clearly the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, a full-sized tablet version of the original Galaxy Note. The device itself should get a proper unveiling sometime on Monday.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: February 24, 2012

Happy Friday, everyone. We made it to the end of yet another work week, and now it's time to check back on what made news on this day in tech. For starters, Google made a big splash when it announced it will bring "Do Not Track" functionality to Chrome. On a less surprising note, HP has confirmed it will be bringing a Windows 8 tablet to market this year, after the highly bungled webOS platform was officially chopped from the company's tablet portfolio.

Google prepares for another giant Android showing at MWC

Jumping off from last year's great success at Mobile World Congress 2011, Google is once again preparing the "Google Pod" for Android goodness at the 2012 edition of the Barcelona-based show. What we saw last year amazed and dazed the masses, showing Android to be not just a force to be reckoned with in the greater mobile market, but a completely fun and enjoyable brand to engage with on a larger-than-life level as well. This year's Google Pod will once again be featuring gigantic Android statues, a fully functional elbow slide, and what we've yet to confirm is more Android-treat-flavored smoothies, not to mention a full showing of everything Android has to offer to the world of mobile.

ASUS tease color combinations for tablets at MWC 2012

There's another brand new teaser video in town this week, coming from ASUS with three colors in mind: Red, White, and Blue, painted right over the tablet landscape. Here's what we're figuring, given the information we have so far: this teaser is for the PadFone. Thus far we've gotten one teaser called "Divided We Stand" complete with some Russian nesting dolls, then we got a "Twice the Pixels, Twice the Fun" teaser which showed how if you put a bunch of rubber balls in a bin, they look better if there's more of them, now we get this. This teaser has three colors on a pallet, a painter smooshing one of them and stamping out a masterpiece on canvas.

ViewSonic has outed its Mobile World Congress line-up of smartphones and tablets, and with the Android-powered ViewPhone 4s running a 3.5-inch 960 x 640 display it's clear the iPhone 4S is the company's key target.

It's not the only new ViewSonic device, though; read on for more.

Sony may unveil Windows Phone device at MWC

There's no shortage of things to be on the lookout for at next week's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, but one thing most people haven't been talking about is that an important company might be taking a walk on the Windows Phone side even though it has been a staunch Android supporter so far. The idea of a Windows Phone-powered Sony phone first came to light when a supposed picture was leaked.
