postheadericon Sony Ericsson CTO: first LTE device coming ‘pretty soon,’ also considering Android tablets

Back in late 2008, Ericsson boldly predicted that 2012 will be the year of LTE; and fast forward to today, one year shy of the big one-two, said company’s joint venture with Sony is already teasing its first LTE device. In a recent interview with Fierce Wireless, Sony Ericsson CTO Jan Uddenfeldt talked about SE’s renewed focus on the US market, and how its relationship with Google helped securing its first-ever deal with Verizon. While emphasizing that SE’s been in the CDMA business for years in Japan, Uddenfeldt also referred to the TD-LTE demonstration with ST-Ericsson and China Mobile at MWC, which featured a prototype LTE device developed by his own gang. Looks like SE’s all set to enter the game, but the question is when will we see its first LTE device on the market? Uddenfeldt said “pretty soon,” and he further fuels speculation by mentioning a potential collaboration with Sony on some Android tablets (maybe the S1?). Oh, such a teaser this man is.

postheadericon Android tablets bring touchscreen connectivity to Indian bus riders — still no $35 slates in sight (video)

That’s right, that little green blob in the upper left hand corner of that built-in touchscreen is indeed the Android logo, and that display does indeed belong to a tablet of unknown origin, currently riding around on the back of a headrest on a bus somewhere in India. We’re not entirely sure who’s funding this project or which bus line the tablets can be found on, but the login screen you see here does give us a little bit of insight: “As per government policy, we need to record details of the person using the Internet on this device.” The service is apparently free and unlimited, and if this is a government program, it would be right in line with India’s democratic outlook on technology. Sure, Indian college students are still awaiting the storied $35 tablets, but we suppose if they have enough scratch to ride the bus all day, these headrest slates could do in a pinch. For a look at what Android tablets look like on public transit, check out the video after the jump.

[Thanks, Kartik]

HTC Flyer tablet hits Amazon.de for 669 Euros

We’re seeing some rather unattainable prices for many of the sexiest Android tablets to be unveiled at MWC and CES this year, but thankfully HTC’s Flyer looks to be coming in a little lower than most. It’s just popped up on Amazon.de at €669. Subtract the VAT and run that figure through a currency converter and you’re looking at a price of around $730. A bargain? Hardly, but better than some others we’ve seen. Sadly it’s still nicht verfügbar, but if you hurry you can jetzt vorbestellen.

[Thanks, Andrezj]

postheadericon Samsung preparing a 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 2 with Honeycomb for this Sunday?

Samsung’s MWC 2011 presentation is this Sunday, at 6PM Central European Time (midday for those on the American east coast). We already know it will feature a dual-core evolution to the Galaxy S smartphone and we know for a fact there’ll be at least one new tablet on show. Pocket-lint is today filling in some details about said Tab successor by identifying it as a 10.1-inch Android 3.0 device. That means Samsung is stepping right up to Motorola, whose Xoom still looks likely to be the first Honeycomb tablet to ship, and saying it can do better. It might just be able to do it, too, as the new and unnamed Tab is said to be physically smaller than Apple’s iPad in spite of having a slightly larger display. Somewhat less believable is the mention of a dual-core Qualcomm processor as the thing to power Samsung’s new tablet — can you really see Samsung undermining the future success of its Orion / Exynos chip by using a competitor’s hardware? Then again, weirder things have happened.
