In the last 20 years, electronics have come a very long way. Many of us can remember playing “Oregon Trail” on the old Macintosh computer (after loading the floppy disk, of course). That was a big deal back then, but seems light years behind us right now. What is the current generation going to reflect back on and remember about 2011? What are the trendiest and most popular gadgets from 2011?
Apple forces Samsung to take away the Galaxy Tab 7.7 from IFA
5 Sep 2011 - By Omar Mariño
Believe it or not, Galaxy Tab 7.7, the Samsung tablet, suddenly disappeared from the stand of the multinational conglomerate corporation at the IFA in Berlin, after two days of the official introduction. During the previous days of this industrial exhibition, the model was exhibited with a sign saying: “Not for sale in Germany”. But now even the articles and pages about this gadget have been removed from the German version of the Samsung website.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Launch
2 Sep 2011 - By Omar Mariño
The first tablet launched to the market was, without doubt, a real success due to multiple factors. The first one of them was related to the introduction of a “change” in the market by being a useful, unique, and very innovative product. The second factor was certainly associated with the company that introduced it, since everything coming from Cupertino seems to have assured success (of course, we are talking about Apple). Also, another factor is the great novelty of having a small computer in our hands and, lastly but not least, it’s important to remember that the iPad had little competition in its early days; in fact, while the competition is greater and challenging today, the iPad is still considered the undisputed king of the tablet market. However, Samsung is working hard to be the most important Apple challenger in this segment with its Galaxy Tab family, which now has a new member: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, a launch that maybe is not easy to understand for some people due to slight differences with the tiny Galaxy Tab 7.0.

After a long waiting, Sony has introduced its two first tablets during the Berlin IFA technology conference. Both of them will work with Android, the Google operating system, and cost between 479 and 599 euros (approximately between US$ 684 and US$ 855). The Sony Tablet S has a design similar to tablets from other companies, with a 9.4-inch screen and Android 3.1. The Tablet P model is very much unconventional; instead of being a single surface, it has two 5.5-inch screens that can be used together or separately; when folded up, it takes up less space than many pocket gadgets (it will come with Android 3.2).

Just a few days ago, Korean company Samsung confirmed the existence of the Galaxy R, a high-end smartphone that complements the line where the Samsung Galaxy S II is, apparently, the flagship product of the company in the current mobile industry (at least regarding mobile phones). Well, now Samsung is also confirming, through an official press release, some features of this smartphone and the availability in Europe. However, the Korean company has not indicated a list of specific countries where it will become available this fall.
