Samsung Galaxy device with curved display, there was an official announcement for the Galaxy Round. The handset has what Samsung refers to as a 'roll effect' which basically means the handset can be tilted to the side. The unique aspect here, instead of simply rolling back and forth, when you roll the handset the display will activate. But while this sounds like a neat feature, it may be one not seen by many.
Samsung Galaxy Note III have surfaced, with the device in the pictures looking similar to the trio that appeared back in June. Unfortunately, neither of the shots are from a good angle, so we don't get much of a look at the device, but it does give an idea of its fairly square shape.
HTC EVO 4G LTE for the Now Network later this year we now have something even better, if you like 3D of course. A prototype has been spotted of an unknown HTC device with dual cameras, but this is most likely the successor to the EVO 3D. We'll be calling this the HTC EVO 3D LTE for good measure.
Pocket-Lint they have just snapped a few photos of a brand new 13.3" prototype Tegra 3 quad-core tablet from Toshiba at a conference in the UK. It's amazingly thin and looks quite beautiful. I'm just not sure what I'd use something that large for.
4-Plus-1 Tegra 3 system on a chip. While the device itself isn't quite ready for prime time yet, Fujitsu is showing off a new Tegra 3 Ice Cream Sandwich phone with some tricks up it sleeve, namely an incredible 13.1 megapixel camera and a waterproof design. Officially designated "quad-core prototype" for the time being, expect to see something similar coming from Fujitsu sometime this year - though probably not outside of Asia, at least at first.
super-skinny Excite was... uh... exciting. Get a load of this 7.7-inch version of the hardware, with the all-important (and seemingly ubiquitous) addition of an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. The beautiful little tablet is code-named the AT270, and in addition to the processor it sports a full 1280x800 AMOLED(!) screen, 1GB of RAM and - wait for it - Ice Cream Sandwich. This one's obviously in the early stages of development, but shows a lot of promise already - we'd be very surprised if it didn't reach retail shelves at some point this year.
yet. It is a prototype that may never surface for the public's use, but nevertheless it is sporting an Intel chip and Android OS. Finally, Intel intends to make a comeback in 2012 by incorporating their technology into both tablets and smartphones. Technology Review was able to test out both of the prototypes, and they state we should see them officially within the first half of 2012.

to a Rube Goldberg-style machine and hardly telling us anything at all. Happily a brief demo of the Android Honeycomb prototypes in Munich this week has been more elucidating; while Sony still isn't saying much about final specs or software, at least Golem got to briefly play with the slates. The S1's 9.7-inch display, folded-magazine style tapered form factor and light, 600g weight met with approval, the wedge shape make for something easy to hold. Sony apparently had Crash Bandicoot running on the tablet, with the on-screen PlayStation controls straightforward to use. The company is still generally quiet, but has apparently confirmed PlayStation Suite compatibility. As for the S2, that's a lot more compact than we initially expected - the clamshell form-factor hiding its dual 5.5-inch touchscreens well - and does a decent job of minimizing the gap between the two panels. Sony hasn't confirmed pricing or availability, but previous leaks have suggested a September launch in Europe which could well mean an IFA 2011 official reveal. [youtube nGyynWokrpA] [via SlashGear]
