Wednesday, September 08th, 2010

As the IFA tech tradeshow winds down in Berlin, one of the clear standouts at the show was the Samsung Galaxy Tab, an Android tablet phone. The Galaxy Tab is a 7-inch tablet that is positioned to compete with the iPad.

For a side-by-side comparison of the Galaxy Tab and the iPad, check out the comparison chart at PCWorld. To summarize the differences — the Galaxy Tab is smaller and lighter and supports up to 32GB of expandable storage. In addition, while the iPad is without a built-in camera, the Galaxy Tab has both front and rear-facing cameras. And of course the Galaxy Tab has smartphone capabilities.

At the IFA tech tradeshow currently underway in Berlin, LG is showing a razor thin OLED TV with a 15-inch screen. This is much smaller than the average TV, but larger than Sony’s 11-inch model. Called “The Object,” the TV display is only 0.1 inches thick and weighs 11 ounces.

An OLED display differs from traditional LCDs by not requiring a backlight to function. It also consumes less power while being operated. OLED technology is also easier to manufacture than LCDs and plasma displays.
