Digital game delivery system developer Valve and electronics manufacturer HTC have unveiled their attempt at a virtual reality headset -- the HTC Vive. The system, shown at Barcelona's Mobile World Congress, will see two releases before the end of the year; a developer edition coming this month, and a consumer version shipping in time for the holiday season.
ASUS is beginning to release teasers for a new tablet, more than likely to be a follow-up to the Transformer Prime. It may be the Transformer Prime TF700T that was shown at CES, but it could be a totally different device. The TF700T may sport a higher-resolution, 1920x1200 display, which doesn't quite live up to the teaser video's promise of "twice the detail, twice the fun." The TF700T would run on Android 4.0 and ship in June, so it's unlikely ASUS would stoke anticipation for a reintroduction of the same tablet at a different show.
The first image of the upcoming HTC One X smartphone has now been shared online by PocketNow. The phone, previously known as the Endeavor and Edge, will be a flagship device, said to be sporting a quad-core Tegra 3 chip and large, 4.7-inch HD touchscreen. It should ship with Android 4.0 onboard and be one of the first to have HTC's Sense 4.0 skin.
Motorola announced at MWC that it will begin selling the Xoom tablet in Europe. The company will offer both a 3G/WiFi and a WiFi-only version. The Xoom runs Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), the first Android OS specifically designed for tablets. It features a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor and a 10.1-inch HD screen. The 1280x800 display also uses a 16:10 ratio to make typing on the tablet easier.
Motorola announced at MWC 2011 that it will bring the Droid Pro to Europe. The Pro uses a CDMA/GSM chip, which allows it to be deployed in more than 220 countries. Motorola unveiled the Pro at the CTIA show in October 2010.
