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.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

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.
