The lads are hard at work hanging at MWC 2011, drinking red wine, and eating patatas bravas. But, luckily, they’re also looking at tablets. Here’s a run-down of what they’ve seen so far.
In case you were wondering, yes, they’re the same thing. Originally revealed as the T-Mobile G-Slate, it was soon made clear that it was an LG-made tablet, and that they would be putting out their own self-branded version. They’re pretty much identical, with the G-Slate having some unannounced partnerships for mobile media and such. I got a quick hands-on at the LG booth, and we’ll have video a little later.
You already know about the Xoom, Motorola’s big foray into the Android tablet world, but I thought I’d get some shots of the guy while I was over in Motorola’s booth here at Mobile World Congress. The device, as we’ve noticed, has a pleasant chunkiness to it but isn’t over-large. Its screen is nice, the OS is responsive, and the specs are competitive with what’s out there. Here are our latest hands-on pics of it and its cute wireless keyboard…
We’re here at Mobile World Congress, and the brand new Galaxy S 10.1 was one of our first stops. My first impression? I like it. The larger size screen combines nicely with the different aspect ratio to make something that’s a nice medium-large size, and the grippy, sculpted back cover is a joy to hold. Of the several tablets I handled today (more hands-on posts on the way), I think this one is my quick-judgment favorite.
