At CES 2012, even we can see the real product of PadFone from ASUS but at least the prototype version was shown. We can expect more at MWC 2012. If you don’t know about this ASUS PadFone, I can tell you that it is the combination of smartphone and tablet in which there is a dock in tablet that you always can insert the smartphone for some reasons such as memory, battery and more.
The phone features quad-core Tegra 3 processor, a 4.3-inch display, an 8 megapixel camera, HDMI connectivity and Android 4.0. Learning from previous rumors, we can assume that ASUS was trying to bring Android 4.0 to the tablet which was the main reason for the delay but
seem like we can expect this product to come to the market faster since bringing Android to tablet is not too hard as Motorola has managed to officially release Android 4.0 update for the Xoom already.
Great job! Now Motorola Xoom can officially update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This update is only available for U.S. version only. You should have received a notification which will be able to upgrade directly from your device. If you didn’t get it you might check its availability on setting. If you still can’t find the update in setting, you better wait for a few more days for this update widely spread.
This is absolutely the great work by Motorola to bring this ICS update to Xoom making it to be the first tablet with ICS. For Xoom users in other countries, this update should be able to come soon.
At CES 2012, ZTE has unveiled a new Ice Cream Sandwich Tablet, the T98. This tablet has a 7-inch display with resolution of 1280 × 800 pixel. It is powered by Tegra 3 Chipset which you will find it useful for some high requirement applications and games.
Other interesting features include a 1.3GHz quad-core Nvidia, 1 GB of RAM, a 5 megapixel camera for video recording at 1080p, a 1.3 megapixel front camera for video call and 4000 mAh battery.
However there is no words on pricing or availability but it should be available before Q2 of 2012.
Among the many laptops or tablets at CES 2012, Lenovo has two more interesting devices for you which are IdeaCenter A720 and IdeaPad YOGA.
For IdeaPad YOGA, it has a very flexible design as ultrabook but can be flipped to be tablet. In short, this device can be used as a notebook, or, turning in on itself due to the KEYBOARD the double hinge, as a tablet. In this case you have the possibility to use it double backed on a plane (with the keyboard that acts as a table top), or trucks, the most usual mode.
Weighing less than 1.5 kg and a thickness of 17 mm, with IdeaPad YOGA runs on Windows 8 and Intel Core family processors, 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. The battery can last up to 8 hours to meet their entertainment needs.

It is very clear that the year 2012 will be the year of tablet which we will see many more tablets in the market with different specification and price. Of course those who can offer the lowest price are more likely to be the dominants. Currently Apple is the leader in tablet with their iPad but price is the biggest matter.
To compete more in this business and learning from Amazon Kindle Fire which was so success thanks to the low price of $200, Apple is rumored to create two different iPad 3 with different price with different hardware.
One should be equipped with a better display with resolution of 2048 × 1536 and another one would come with 1024 × 768 which is used today on iPad 2. But both will be powered by A6 processor.
Talking about the low price, first it is about the iPad 2 which will see price drop to $399 after the iPad 3 released. Another one is the new iPad will be available with a price tag between $299-$499 according to WiFi or 3G and display resolution.
However dropping the price to this low level is so interesting even it is hard to do. We are waiting to see the new tablet marketing strategy of Apple for the year 2012. Will the company go for price drop or enhance technology.

Note that unlock bootloader will void your warranty.
