Android-Based Inkia inPad 701 and 702 Tablets Get Shown Off, No Other Details

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

Another company has decided to hop onto the Android-based tablet bandwagon and they just couldn't wait until Computex, which is two weeks from now. The Inkia inPad 701 and 702 tablets are exactly the same, except the 702 model will have integrated 3G support. This will likely be headed to Asia, so I doubt you'll be able to get your hands on one of these unless Dynamism can pull through. Unfortunately, that's all we know about both tablets, so any specs are still unknown.

Samsung (i8920) Omnia HD 2 To Feature 4-Inch Super AMOLED, 12MP Camera, and Symbian^3

Labels: , ,

The picture above appears to be just a rough picture of what the Samsung i8920 Omnia HD 2 will look like, but the focus here is definitely on the rumoured specs of the handset. Apparently, this handset will feature a 4-inch Super AMOLED (capacitive) touchscreen display, a 12MP camera with a Xenon and LED-flash as well as 720p HD video recording (at 30fps), 16GB / 32GB of internal storage (two different models), GPS / WiFi support, Bluetooth 3.0, and Symbian^3. These specs seem achievable by the end of this year and it looks like it could outperform every Nokia handset that'll have the same OS on it - kind of like what the OmniaHD did.

Verizon To Launch "Up To" Five (4G) LTE Handsets By May 2011, Tablets Late This Year

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

According to Reuters, Verizon has just mentioned a bunch of juicy information. Apparently, a year from now - by May of next year - Verizon will launch "up to" five handsets that will be capable of running on their 4G LTE network. This should include manufacturers like Motorola, LG, HTC, and RIM but nothing is confirmed right now.

The other bit of juicy information involves, of course, tablets. Verizon has mentioned that they're working on "tablets" that will be [likely] launched by the end of this year. This will include Motorola, Samsung, and LG and the first batch will be running on the Android OS. The details on these tablets are still unknown at the moment so we'll still have to wait around for that. Engadget is hoping for an Android-based tablet from HTC that'll be running on their LTE network. Let's hope their wish comes true.
