A quick hands on video with the LG Optimus Pad which packs a Tegra 2 processor and Android 3.0 also known as Honeycomb. It’s a very slick tablet in use, although it didn’t feel quite ready for prime time yet, but it’s clear that Android 3.0 has been designed for tablet use, unlike Android 2.2 which is found on many early Android tablet.
This is a quick preview video of an Intel MeeGo tablet and a quick walk through of the new panels UI that Intel has developed for the platform. It’ll take some getting used to, as it works very differently from your average tablet OS. We should be seeing MeeGo tablets later this year running on Intel’s Oaktrail Atom platform which should be announced sometime in Q2 this year.
It’s always good to arrive a day or two early when it comes to large trade shows and we arrived in Barcelona a few days ago already, as we intended to spend a few days in this tourist destination ahead of the Mobile World Congress for a few days holiday. Earlier today on our way around the city on the Metro we spotted a group of people carrying around large, blue, semi-open boxes advertising Samsung’s press event at the Mobile World Congress.
There’s no denying that AMD has managed to drum up a lot of support for its Brazos platform and the latest in a long line of companies to launch a product based on the platform is Fujitsu with its new Lifebook PH521. This is yet another 11.6-inch Brazos notebook, but to us this looks like the ideal size for the platform.
Although Asus’ new Eee PC Sirocco didn’t blow us away, we have an exclusive video from the launch event in Taipei, Taiwan as the only English media attending the event. It doesn’t show off the new netbook as much as it shows off the models holding it and other netbooks from Asus. Click through to see the glitzy launch event at one of the latest boutique hotels in Taipei.
Just a couple of quick pictures from the launch event, we’ll have more content from the launch later today, including a video and hopefully some more details about the Eee PC Sirocco apart from the details found on Asus’ website as per our earlier post.
Asus has leaked all the details of its new Eee PC Sirocco, also known as the Eee PC 1015PW less than a day ahead of the official unveiling. It’s indeed a new “fashion” netbook, although this time somewhat more tasteful than Asus’ last attempt with the Karim Rashid Collection.
A few days ago with got a few minutes with the recently announced Gigabyte S1080 tablet, although the Gigabyte representative at the event we attended was very protective of the device. It has some interesting features, but as with all Windows based tablets, it’s unlikely to be a huge seller in the consumer market.
Asus is set to launch yet another Eee PC model this week called the Sirocco. It’s something of an enigma as too what it is at the moment, as we haven’t managed to track down any details of such a model and it’s not something Asus was showing off at CES.
