With yesterdays post I shared about how to get updates from Sprint. Today BlackBerry announced its pricing.

WiFi Versions:
16 GB: $500
32 GB: $600
64 GB: $700

Scheduled availability is on April 19th.

Will this be your tablet or choice or will you stick with the first one to the market. Maybe you want to spend the same and get more screen real-estate. The great thing is you can choose whatever you can handle.

2 New Galaxy Tabs! Pricing!

Today at CTIA Samsung announced two new Galaxy Tabs. In their event they showed how each person has a different use for tablets and they each prefer a different form factor. The first is the Galaxy Tab 10.1. This will feature Android 3.0 and TouchWiz 4.0. It will have 4G capabilities. Other features are a Readers Hub, Music Hub, Media Hub, dual speakers,2 mp front facing camera, 5 mp 720p rear camera, and enterprise specific features. SD card adapter, hdmi/speaker dock, ear piece, and book cover case. Samsung just announced pricing of the 10.1" tablet, 16 GB at $499 and 32GB at $599. Launch June 8th!

The second is the Galaxy Tab 8.9. It will consist of the same features as the 10.1 model. 16 GB at $469 and 32GB at $569. This will be available in the summer.

Wow the market is really being filled with some great products. Samsung is promoting these to be the thinest and lightest tablets of them all.

The iPad 2! All you need to know.

What another amazing Apple event that was. Apple is doing a great job at refreshing it's products fast. She here are my predictions for the iPad 2.

  • New A5 processor. Not sure on the speed.
  • A pixel density screen.
  • Weight 1 lb. (Close)
  • Front facing 2MP camera for Facetime.
  • A sd card slot to easily transfer pictures.
  • No price change.
  • Ability to sync the 30 connecter with Thunderbolt.
More than half right but I did miss a few things. They made it slimmer, added the function to mirror screen onto TV with HDMI, a rear camera, and many other features.

Go here to see the full specs. So my question to you is, does the iPad now have all you need or do you still think that it is a fad? Sound off in the comments. Thanks for reading!
