CES 2022 mobile launches – smartphones and tablets
CES, or the Consumer Electronics Show, is an annual consumer electronics trade show held in Las Vegas. This year’s edition has just come to an end, and we present the most interesting tablet and smartphone launches unveiled at the show!
Samsung unveiled its new tablets – Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO, operating on the basis of the Android system. They are meant to be “professional” versions of the existing Note and Tab tablets. Galaxy NotePRO is a tablet with a screen size of an impressive 12.2-inch, the TabPRO, meanwhile, is available in three different sizes: 12.2, 10.1 i 8.4 inches. Both devices run on Android 4.4.
But the biggest surprise is the new design, Magazine UX, which sees the old design of the android desktop replaced with a more modern and simplified form, evoking Windows Phone. In addition, there is an option to run multiple windows (up to four) simultaneously. It gives new options and user experiences, making the tablet more and more like a multitasking computer.
Acer unveiled two new tablets running on Android – the A1-830 and B1-720. Their main advantage is their low price – $130 and $150 respectively. The tablets do not deviate too much from Acer’s existing devices – they have been improved in terms of technology and design. Iconia A1-830 is the 7.9-inch tablet with 1GB RAM and a battery that allows for approx.
7.5 hours of operation. Iconia B1-720 is another budget device. Its screen size is 7 inches, the tablet has a dual-core processor and, like the previous model, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
Both devices run on Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.
Asus in turn decided to present a new transformer, the Transformer Book Duet TD300. This is the first laptop with two operating systems, so we can use the device as an Android tablet and as a Windows laptop. To switch between modes, you only need to press the appropriate button. Thanks to the powerful Intel Core i7 processor, the device is twice as fast as existing tablets with ARM processors.
In addition, the device has very good audio-video specifications. The question is how comfortable will you find using a tablet with a screen of 13.3-inch, because that’s the size the Transformer boasts.
