Samsung’s New Devices and HP’s Teasers

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

HP is keeping everyone in the dark about what exact products the company is developing. But from a recently released image, it appears that the company is currently pursuing development on a wide range of products.

The image shows Phil McKinney (current CTO for HP) with several new devices on hand. As to specifically what devices he is holding, nobody knows. The image has all the new gadgets blocked out with black boxes leaving only a size references to determine what kind of gadgets these things could be. Anyway, one of the devices stands out: what appears to be standard sized smart phone.

HP’’s attempt at a smart phone has long been awaited for since the company took control of former smart phone manufacturer Palm. The Palm WebOS and keyboard layouts are quite famous and successful in the tech industry and many have been waiting to see what HP would actually do with the resources.

In other mobile handset news, Samsung has recently been teasing the world with a couple of new devices: one Android and the other a Bada smart phone.

Many are already quite familiar with the recently uploaded site for the Samsung Galaxy Tab teaser website and from the looks of it, the Korean phone maker will be pushing full steam ahead with their new touch screen tablet device.

It might have a smaller screen than that 9.7 inch display of the iPad, but even with 7 inches, the Tab is still quite a tempting choice –particularly because this device is reported to be able to take and make calls.

This potentially makes the Galaxy Tab the largest smart phone. The other device is the Wave 723 which is a new Bada based smart phone that looks a lot like the Wave 2 devices but only with a better camera (5 mega pixels).

More Bada Fun with the Samsung Wave 723

It is certainly surprising how the first Samsung Wave handset managed to sell well. With the market already dominated by many other operating systems, it seemed pretty much of a big gamble for the Korean phone maker to create their own mobile platform. And while others may argue that a large bulk of the sales happened within Korea, one cannot help but see the impressive design and work running with the Bada OS.

Anyway, the Bada mobile platform is set to come out in several new devices, and among these phones is the Samsung Wave 723. New to the lineup of Wave handsets, the S7230E is an addition that certainly deserves a little bit of mention.

Admittedly, the specs are not all that impressive –differing only from the Wave 2 and Wave 2 Pro in minimal details. But there is something about this handset that some users will appreciate; a better camera -the 5 mega pixel camera on the Wave 723 is a notch better than the 3.15 lenses of the Wave 2 phones.

While this will not matter much to most users who simply use the phone for snapshots, the additional specs certainly give the handset better value.

In terms of other hardware features, anyone who has seen the Wave 2 and Wave 2 Pro will easily see the similarities of the two devices. First off, all of the phones pack a nice 3.2 inch TFT capacitive touch screen display. While this is nowhere near the 4 inch screen of the Galaxy S, it is certainly more practical for the general user.

Expect to get decent quality visuals on the 240 x 400 resolution screen and fast response times from the touch screen interface. For those hesitating with the Bada platform, worry not –the TouchWiz user interface makes the whole experience a lot more enjoyable.
