A Cavalcade of Slates At MWC 2011
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.
