Samsung launching Galaxy Tab 2, Galaxy S 2

New tablet and smartphone to be launched at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month

We love a good rumour or leak, and this time it's Samsung's plans for its Mobile World Congress (MWC) announcement in Barcelona next month.

The Samsung Hub blog has leaked a PR document that all but confirms Samsung will launch the Galaxy Tab 2 and the Galaxy S 2 in Barcelona on 13 February.

These rumours have been floating around the traps for some time. The Samsung Galaxy S 2 is likely to sport a dual-core processor (like LG's Optimus 2X), while there are suggestions the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 may come with a 10in screen, making it a larger device than the original 7in Galaxy Tab.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 will more than likely run Android 3.0 or "Honeycomb" which has specifically been designed for tablets, while the Galaxy S 2 should come with Android 2.3 or "Gingerbread", the latest Android version available for smartphone devices.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
