[MWC 2014] Sony Reveals The Xperia Z2 Tablet With A Snapdragon 801 Processor And A 6.4mm Frame

Along with a new flagship phone, Sony has raised the curtain on a new high-end tablet at Mobile World Congress. Like previous Sony designs, the Xperia Z2 Tablet takes its name, looks, and general hardware from the Z2 smartphone.

We've been seeing quite a lot of Sony's "Xperia Sirius," and it looks like Sony is ready to take the wraps off of it here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

[MWC 2014] Huawei's MediaPad X1, M1, Ascend G6 Round Out MWC Offering

Besides the TalkBand B1, Huawei introduced three other devices in their MWC presentation - the MediaPad X1 7.0, MediaPad M1 8.0, and the Ascend G6. The first is pegged as a phone/tablet hybrid, the second just a tablet (capable of Wi-Fi calling and SMS), and the third a budget to mid-range phone.

We'll take a quick look at all three, but let's start with the MediaPad X1.

MediaPad X1 7.0

The X1 "combines the functionality of a smartphone and tablet" in its aluminum alloy body, and besides Huawei's own suite of software enhancements with Emotion UI 2.0, has plenty of specs worth looking twice at.

Now one Instagram video of the Gear 2 seems to have spilled the beans on the S5, at least in a mild way.
