My scoop today was getting my hands on two of the new products from Samsung, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the Galaxy Note. These new devices are really nice to get to grips with and show how technology is moving swiftly in these areas. Both products implement dual core processors and both incorporate Super AMOLED screen technology. The Tab 7.7 runs at 1.4Ghz , is just 7.99mm thick and weighs just 340g. The Note runs at 1.5 GHz. Check out these two videos that should give you a good feel for both of these products. You even get to see the face from behind the camera, which I was able to subtly improve with the S Pen!
I also met with a Karl Zhao, President and CEO of DigiLink who gave me more details on the newly announced BiggiFi software platform. He was able to tell me how this technology will revolutionise, for example, the way we want to play mobile games in our living room. I also met with Kip Kokinakis, CEO of Viewlink, who told us how they have incorporated the BiggiFi technology into the MyVu VizCom system, and of course it’s all based on and around ARM technology.
That’s all for today, make sure you come back later for more news from CES 2012!
