Sony has come up with two phones as I have told you before. The second one is Xperia Ion. Xperia Ion differs in design but is quite the same when it comes to specifications. Never the less, repeating the above specs a bit won’t hurt. It is PlayStation Certified as well which is a huge advantage. 2 HD cameras, 4.5 inches screen, 12 megapixels camera, 1.5 Ghz dual core processor, Android v2.3 and just like these. Good phone and I guess, Sony would make a lot of money from the new models in Xperia series. It will launch in the second quarter of 2012.

Ideatab K2 also have quite similar specs. There’s a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 chip to power it hugely. There is a fingerprint reader on the back and dual speakers running down either side of the screen. The camera is 8 megapixels which is good. At last, we have to say that these two tablets have the capabilities to rule the world and give head to head competition to top tablets in the market. Let’s see how it goes.

Toshiba Excite 10 is being claimed as the most stylish tablet yet. It is undoubtedly stylish but may not be the most stylish one I guess. Never the less, the tablet is great with the specs and design. 10.1 inch screen, 1.2 Ghz dual core processor, 5 megapixels camera, Android 4.0, etc. Good to see that Android 4.0 is spreading in all the latest tablets.
