    Fujitsu Stylistic M702

    At MWC in Barcelona, Fujitsu took the rugged route with its new Android tablet for business, the Stylistic M702 tablet. Fujitsu said that the tablet can survive under water for 30 minutes and is sealed to prevent dust from reaching its interior. It also has scratch-resistant glass.

    The tablet is powered by a Tegra 3-chipset from Nvidia and can connect to 4G/LTE networks. Fujitsu claims that its battery life is up to 15 hours. It also sports an integrated fingerprint sensor, full-disk encryption, and remote device tracking and recovery help.

    Dell Lattitude 10

    Dell's entry into MWC is a security-minded version of its Lattitude 10 Windows 8 tablet. The new security features include a fingerprint reader and an integrated smart card reader — it's the only dual-authentication Windows 8 tablet currently on the market.

    It's powered by an Intel Atom Z2760 processor, 2GB of RAM, 64GB solid-state storage, and a 10.1-inch Gorilla Glass screen. But at $799, the extra safety features add $200 to the regular Lattitude 10 price tag.

  • they all look the same

    I know that the rounded corners square form is the most appropriate for touch devices but its a bit boring. Anyone that can make a tablet or a phone with a different shape will at least get brand recognition. But the thing I really want from a tablet or a phone is having the front facing camera in the middle of the screen, I suppose that's a technical impossibility but it would be really nice for video calls. Also why on tablets do they not have the best camera on the front?
