Here it is, official as official gets: Samsung just announced the Galaxy Tab 7.7. As the name suggests, it has a 7.7-inch (1280 x 800) display – specifically, a Super AMOLED Plus panel. Like so many other 7-inchers hitting the market, it runs Android 3.2 and yes, that’s a skinned flavor of Honeycomb, with Samsung’s tablet-optimized TouchWiz UX layered on top. Inside, it runs the same Samsung-made dual-core 1.4GHz processor found in the new Galaxy Note, along with an HSPA+ radio promising theoretical download speeds as high as 21Mbps. Other specs for the 0.74-pound (335-gram) tablet include 16GB to 64GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 5,100mAh battery rated for 10 hours, 802.11n WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0 and dual 3MP and 2MP cameras. In a nutshell, it’s the in-between-sized do-over a lot of folks have been awaiting since the original Galaxy Tab grew stale – a slate that promises faster speeds and some seriously improved viewing angles. We’ll be the judge of that in our review, but in the meantime stay tuned for some early hands-on impressions.

Until a few days ago we’d heard surprisingly little about the Galaxy Note, a handset rumored to be launching alongside the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and Wave 3 at IFA. It’s ironic, really, because of all the phones to have kept a low profile, this is a memorable one. Behold, a 5.3-inch handset with a stowaway pen for note-taking, drawing and grabbing screen captures. In other words, a Dell Streak-esque hunk of a device that blurs the lines between phone and tablet. You’re looking at a Gingerbread-running LTE and HSPA+ handset with a 1280 x 800 Super AMOLED display, dual 8MP and 2MP cameras, a removable 2,500mAh battery and the same Samsung-made dual-core 1.4GHz processor you’ll find in the just-announced Galaxy Tab 7.7. For a phone this gargantuan, it’s actually quite thin at light, at 9.65mm (0.38 inches) thick and a reasonable 178 grams (6.3 ounces). We had a few minutes to handle the phone in advance of today’s press conference, and found it surprisingly easy to grip, even in our small hands. As with the Infuse 4G -whose own 4.5-inch screen once seemed impossibly sprawling – the thin shape makes it tenable, as does the lightweight, textured plastic lining the back.

As you’d expect, Android 2.3 comes layered with TouchWiz on top and, in this case, seven home screens and a touch-optimized interface dubbed “S Pen” designed to take advantage of that pen. These include S Planner, a native calendar and to-do list app, from which you can drag and drop appointments, changing time slots without having to open an entry. S Memo for note-taking, meanwhile, accepts voice, photo, text and handwritten input. We also got a quick glimpse of Virtual Whiteboard, a more collaborative form of note-taking. On top of that, Samsung says it’s releasing the S Pen SDK to third-party developers, and the company’s banking on more apps for organizing photos and drawing, among other things. For now, this is merely a global launch: Samsung says it’s still in discussions with carriers worldwide, so depending on your neck of the woods it might be awhile before you hear anything definitive about pricing or availability. Find the some fancy press shots (and a promo vid) after the break, and stay tuned for our hands-on.

It appears that Sony Ericsson are doing what they do best: leaking their devices months before they’re even announced. A couple of days ago we wrote an article about how the Nozomi was to be called the Xperia Arc HD; today we’re seeing photos of the Xperia Arc HD hit the web along with some speculated specifications which are as follows.

  • 4.3-inch 1280 720 (341ppi) Capacitive Display
  • 1.5GHz Dual-Core CPU
  • Android 2.3.5 (Though it could launch at CES with ICS)
  • 1GB RAM
  • Front & Rear Cameras of unknown MP

There’s also an LED strip that runs across the front of the device (near the bottom) to light up the buttons under the display, and there is also another on the back of the device in the exact same place which will no doubt be used for notifications. The presence of hardware buttons does mean that it will not use the on-screen buttons that are built into Ice Cream Sandwich. This can be seen as a positive as now the whole display can be used to show content instead of 90% of it.

CES 2012: See-thru

There have been plenty of rumours as to what Sony Ericsson, or, more accurately, Sony Mobile Communications, would or would not launch at CES in Las Vegas at the start of 2012, and now it is official.

The much rumoured Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc HD is actually to be called the Sony Xperia S.

The official news from Sony, announced at the company’s CES press conference on Monday, matches the leaked prototype, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc HD, we saw last week.

Called the Sony Xperia S, the new device will come with a 4.3-inch 1280 x 720 resolution touchscreen, run Android 2.3 and come with a 12-megapixel Sony Exmor R sensor capable of shooting 1080p and 720p video (via the additional front facing camera).

Inside, users will get a 1.5GHz dual-core processor from Qualcomm and 32GB of storage space.

The phone, sadly, only comes with Android 2.3 at launch, however Sony has already promised an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich due in the 2nd half of 2012. The handset itself will be coming to the UK in March. Three has already confirmed that it will be stocking it.

And yes, that is a see-thru ribbon at the bottom of the phone.

We will, of course, be bringing you more on the Xperia S, so stay tuned.
