Samsung delivers tres mobile devices

Consumer electronics giant Samsung has brought out three new mobile devices at the Barcelona mobile event, the Samsung Galaxy S II, the Tab 10.1 and Bada 578.

The best-selling Android handset from the South Korean company has born a sequel, with the GT-I9100 Galaxy S II. The phone has a similar look to the original phone, only with a larger screen and thinner 8.9mm body with a great deal more under the hood than just different aesthetics.

The 10 million plus best-selling Galaxy S replacement now runs from a dual-core processor, with Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 and a 4.27-inch 480x800 WVGA Super AMOLED Plus screen.

Samsung was rumoured to be adopting the Super LCD screen technology and in much the same way as HTC , where Super AMOLED Plus uses RealStripe tech for an increased sub-pixel count with a much more detailed and clearer image.

The 1Ghz dual-core beefiness of the handset also comes with an advanced HSPA+ 21 wireless network, with the individual cores being powerful enough to deliver good multi-tasking and 3D hardware abilities.

On-board is an 8 megapixel camera that’s capable of 1080p video recording and playback, a significant increase from the 5 MP variant on the first handset that only featured 720p video capture with Froyo.

Samsung has also added to the Galaxy Tab range with an increased screen size to 10.1-inche, with the first Tab only reaching the less than lofty heights of 7-inches. The Galaxy P710 Tab 10.1 will boast a 1Ghz dual-core processor, whilst running from the upcoming Android ‘Honeycomb’ 3.0 OS.

The new Tab will arrive with a 10.1-inch 1280x800 WXGA TFT LCD screen display, with a rear facing 8 megapixel camera that is also capable of full HD – all of which is a big step up from the 1024x600 resolution and 5 MP camera of the current Tab.

Samsung’s last device that launched at Mobile World Congress is another mobile, only this time it’s not an Android product – it’s their third ever Bada operating system based handset.

The Wave 578 arrives with the much hyped near field communication (NFC) built in, with a 3.2-inch WQVGA LCD screen, a 3.2 megapixel camera and version 1.1 of Bada running on the device with the Samsung TouchWiz UI.

Bada is really the newest OS around and has really yet to make a larger dent in the consumer market, where the more different and diverse handsets there are – the more applications will be written for this burgeoning platform.

The Samsung Galaxy S II is due around the March time frame, where the Wave 578 will be rolled out in May and the Tab 10.1 is due out later in the year.
