Rumor States Two New iPads With Be Released In January

A recent DigiTimes article reported that Apple will be unveiling two new versions of the iPad at iWorld/Macworld on Jan. 26, 2012.  These new models will both include a 9.7 inch screen (Just like the current iPad), but at least one will have a QxGA screen, which is 1536×2048 pixel resolution.

Also, one of the new models is said to have a 8 megapixel rear facing camera and the other will have a 5 megapixel camera.  The new battery being used in these tablets is supposedly a 14,000mAh battery which is the largest battery that we have seen on a tablet before.

Not too much is known and once again, these are just rumors…for now.   Other rumors state that the release date might not be until Feb. 24, 2012 which is the birthday of Steve Jobs.

All we can do right now is wait and see.

4G Galaxy Tab On its Way

On Thursday, July 28th, Verizon Wireless will be releasing their newest product, the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 4G tablet.  Users will be able to decide between two different models: a 16GB ($529.99) and 32GB ($629.99).  And if the users want to connect to Verizon’s LTE network, they will have the option of three different data plans (2GB, 5GB, and 10GB).

The new tablet looks to be impressive with a 10.1 inch display and will be running on a 1GHz dual-core processor.  The Galaxy Tab will be available in two different colors: metallic gray, or glossy white.  And like the last version of the Samsung Galaxy tablet, the users will get the option of connecting to the internet through Wi-Fi. It will come with Android 3.1 Honeycomb and will have a 3 megapixel rear facing camera along with a 2 megapixel front facing camera. The tablet will also have 1080p HD video playback.

Overall, that tablet looks impressive and as other bloggers have pointed out, it easily passes up the iPad 2 with all of its specs and more importantly, allowing users to access the new 4G network (iPad 2 can only use 3G).

Samsung vs. Apple

So a teaser video on YouTube has been put up showing off the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2’s specs and features and comparing it to the iPad 2, there seems to be strong competition.

The Galaxy Tab 2 will still have a 7 inch display but this time, the resolution will be 2048×1200.  The device is also said to support a 3D display and it will be run on NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor.

The tablet will come installed with Android 2.3 but the user will have the option to upgrade it to Android 2.3, also known as Honeycomb.  Besides this, it will have 1GB of RAM along with a whopping 64GB of internal storage. As a big upgrade from the first Galaxy Tab, the new tablet will have a 8MP rear camera as well as a 3MP front facing camera (the first tablet had a 1.3 MP front facing camera).  Huge advantage over the iPad 2 here as it has been said that the iPad 2 will have only a 1MP rear camera and a 0.3MP front facing camera (didn’t know anything went that low).

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 looks to be a huge competitor towards not only the iPad 2 but also other tablets coming out soon such as RIM’s PlayBook.
