Sony's Tablet P comes with the latest technology by presenting two interactive screens in one tablet.

During the IFA show in Germany, Sony has unveiled their plans of releasing the first folding tablet computer in the world, which it hopes to be iPad’s top competitor. The Sony Tablet P will be sporting two 5.5-inch touchscreens with a resolution of 1024 x 480 pixels each, and can be folded in half — making it the most portable tablet if compared to Apple’s iPad and other similar devices. Sony even noted that the device could easily fit inside a jacket pocket or a hand bag.

One of the notable features of the Tablet P is that its two screens can be combined together to be used as one large screen. The two sides could also support different activities. For example, the upper one running a video game and the other screen running emails. Sony’s Tablet P is also expected to have a much cheaper retail price than the iPad 2 with the same network access.

Find out the full specifications, price, and release date of Sony Tablet P after the jump.

Another injunction from Düsseldorf regional court has urged Samsung to abandon its Galaxy Tab 7.7 promotion at the IFA trade show.

Samsung has once again faced a new injunction case coming from the Düsseldorf Court, which forced them to pull out its Android-based 7.7-inch tablet computers during the trade show in Berlin last Friday.

At first, it is not clear whether the company pulled the devices for personal reasons or in response to the new injunction. But eventually, Samsung’s spokesperson appeared to confirm that their action was due to the court-ordered ban. “Samsung respects the court’s decision,” Chung noted in a statement, saying that the company believes the ruling “severely limits consumer choice in Germany.”

Samsung Galaxy Wi-Fi 3.6 arrives to compete against iPod Touch, as it slips out at IFA.

Hidden in the middle of Samsung’s large launches at the IFA show on Thursday was a new, smaller version of its Android-based media players. The Galaxy Wi-Fi 3.6 has a more moderate 3.65-inch LCD, facing against the large AMOLED displays of its Wi-Fi 4.0 and 5.0. The device’s central home button style – that was unique in Android-based devices – continues over from their earlier model to its latest. This gives the devices an appearance similar to the iPod touch.

Android 2.3 runs with TouchWiz, reflecting the absence of phone components. Players carry either 8GB or 16GB built-in and have microSDHC slots. Europe should get the Wi-Fi 3.6 in October at prices equivalent to $242 for an 8GB model and $274 for 16GB.

Check out Samsung Galaxy Wi-Fi 3.6’s features after the jump.

Toshiba’s Excite Tablet, Seen in IFA Booth

Toshiba's much more improved tablet called Excite was seen at the IFA show.

Toshiba’s much improved tablet, Excite, made an appearance at the IFA show ahead of time. Even though staffs were closely watching it, the said Android slate was clearly seen at the Toshiba booth before the expo started.

Excite appears to use mostly a stock version of Android 3, and has the mini HDMI, microSD and microUSB support that was leaked out previously. Other details said that it is one of the few Android 3 tablets outside of the HTC Jetstream to use something other than a Tegra 2 chip — if these details are accurate. Toshiba might use a dual-core, 1.5GHz TI OMAP4460 chip that could make it one of the fastest tablets in the field. Front and rear cameras are known, but support for 3G or 4G isn’t.

The Excite promises to reverse an additional error Toshiba made with the Thrive and should ship much closer to its unveiling date, most likely within a few weeks.
