Google has been selling its Nexus 7 tablet for a while and now we're hearing about the Nexus 11, the follow-up to the Nexus 10.

Like the current Android tablet, it will be made by Samsung and be the world's first octa-core tablet, according to SamMobile.

The Nexus 11, subject to Google's approval, will have an 11in Super PLS screen and use Samsung's Exynos 5410 octa-core processor which is found in some global variants of the Galaxy S4 smartphone. Other specs include an 8-megapixel rear facing camera, 2-megapixel front facing camera and a rumoured microSD card for 64GB cards.

The Nexus 11 will rival the iPad 4 and quite possibly the iPad 5 when it arrives.

Samsung is also interested in releasing plenty more of its own tablets under the usual Galaxy branding. The firm has just announced the Galaxy Tab 3 which will go on sale this month.

Similar to the Nexus 11 is the Galaxy Tab 11 which has the same specifications apart from its Exynos 5250 dual-core A15 processor. A Galaxy Tab 8.0 looks like it will be a tablet version of the Galaxy Note 8.0 phablet, with an 8in Full HD screen, 5-megapixel camera and an Exynos 4412 quad-core A9 processor.

Last but not least, Samsung wants to introduce a dual-SIM device called the Galaxy Tab Duos 7.0. This will have two SIM-card slots, a 7in LCD screen, 3-megapixel camera and a dual-core processor. It's effectively a dual-SIM version of the Galaxy Tab 3.

SamMobile said Samsung might cancel a new generation of the Galaxy Note 10.1 because of weak sales.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
