With all this sport to keep us preoccupied this summer, the seasonal drought of big tech news and releases has gone rather unnoticed this year.
We would normally be counting the seconds until autumn and a flurry of product launches, game releases and new speculation, but this year it’s come round a little quicker than expected.
We’ve still got a little while to wait until we see some of the exciting new products in the pipeline, but the countdown is most definitely on.
Kicking of the autumn season will be IFA 2012 in Berlin, taking place at the end of August. This year’s event is set to be a typically busy affair, with all manner of new products due for launch.
Taking place from 31 August to 5 September, IFA 2012 is expected to be the setting for a number of big tech launches. So what can we expect from the event?
Sony Xperia Tablet at IFA 2012?
One of the most exciting product launches is the Xperia Tablet, the second-gen tablet from Sony. True to form, the Japanese manufacturer is not giving anything away but we have had some leaked images of the device which all but confirm its presence at IFA.
If rumours are to be believed, we can expect a similar design to the Sony Tablet S in the follow-up, along with a quad-core processor and 1280 x 800 display.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 at IFA 2012?
We were already fairly sure that we’d see something from Samsung at IFA this year, as a leak started doing the rounds back in July.
But the Korean manufacturer has confirmed the Samsung Unpacked event for 29 August, just before the start of IFA – it never was one to share the limelight!
We don’t know for sure what device or devices will be launched, but we’d be very surprised if the Galaxy Note 2 didn’t feature.
Sony Xperia SL at IFA 2012?
If a new Sony tablet wasn’t enough, rumours abound that we’ll also see a new-and-improved Xperia S at the electronics trade show.
Dubbed the Xperia SL, the device is almost identical to the Xperia S in terms of looks – the improvements come under the bonnet with a better processor and ICS as standard.
