We showed you Motorola's clever teaser for the upcoming CES. The clip reveals that the Schaumburg based company will be introducing a honeycomb flavored, dual-core packing tablet. According to The Korea Times, Samsung, possibly feeling the heat from Motorola, has decided to introduce the sequel to two of its most successful mobile products from 2010
With 1.2 million units sold, the Samsung Galaxy Tab already has a follow-up model called the Samsung Galaxy Tab2. The Korean firm is trying to expand its share of the worldwide tablet market which is expected to go from 15 million tablets sold this year to 50 million next year. There is no word on what changes the sequel tablet will have, although earlier this year there was speculation that such a sequel tablet would have a super AMOLED screen and perhaps be offered with a bigger screen size than the current 7 inches. Another device getting a sequel introduced at CES is the hot selling Samsung Galaxy S smartphone.
Samsung is also expected to introduce at CES, the American version of its Apple iPod challenger called the Samsung Galaxy Player. Basically a Galaxy S without the ability to make phone calls, the device has already been launched in Europe with Android 2.1, a 3.2 inch display and a 2MP camera. The variant headed for the home of the Red, White and Blue will come with Android 2.2, a larger 4 inch Super LCD screen and a rear (3.2MP) and front facing VGA camera. It will also be loaded with Samsung's own app store and its Media Hub outlet for television shows and movies. Also included will be an integrated music store. Just like the Galaxy S, the Galaxy Player offers Wi-Fi connectivity and Bluetooth support. It will be available in 8GB, 16GB or 32GB models. Check out the video below to see a commercial for the European version.
