Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 unveiling, Motorola XOOM launch in February?

Motorola XOOM tablet

While the teaser video for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 that hit the web a few days ago lacked a bit of spit and polish, it does look like Samsung may be preparing to unveil the Galaxy Tab 2 soon. Samsung Hub has posted a slide showing a spartial schedule for Mobile World Congress, and it looks like there’s a presentation involving the Galaxy S 2 phone and Galaxy Tab  tablet slated for the evening of February 13th.

Of course, there’s still no information about the specs, price, or launch date, but it certainly looks like we should be getting more information soon.

In other next-generation Android tablet news, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha just announced during the company’s earnings call that the Motorola XOOM tablet will launch in February. He also suggested that the company could eventually launch a 7 inch version of the tablet.

The XOOM is expected to be the first tablet to ship with Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb installed. Motorola has been working with Google to make that happen. The tablet features a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core chip, a 101 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display with support for 1080p HD video playback and a 5MP camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities. The tablet will work with Verizon’s 3G network in the US. A 4G update will be available later in the year. There’s no official word on whether Motorola has any plans to launch a WiFi-only version of the tablet.

    A recent video review was posted on youtube which featured Xoom. The overall UI is really great and the tablet seems pretty responsive. The reviewer kinda pointed out that the interface is quite complex to use, but hey that’s the fun part in being a techie! Explore!
