Samsung Working Toward Bezel-Free Tech with Flexible Displays as Early as 201

While this story relates primarily to smartphones at first... it is worth reporting here because the advancement will have far reaching applications in future tablets as well. Samsung may be eliminating bezels on their smartphones as early as this year. A new report from Richard Windsor, a senior technology analyst at Normura Group, indicates that Samsung is striving to eliminate bezels in 2012 by bringing flexible displays to market sooner than expected. Supposedly, this new flexible tech will allow them to fold/wrap the screen around the sides of the phone and the material would be an unbreakable plastic substrate.

Here is a quote from Mr. Windsor,

We expect Samsung to mass produce such panels for smartphones in 2012, which we believe would be more popular that the current OLED display equipped in SEC’s Galaxy S II … Plastic displays will change the perception of handsets and tablet PCs in terms of design, thickness, and weight, and this would clearly differentiate Samsung’s products from others, in our view. This is why we like Samsung.
This is interesting from multiple angles. Of course, the obvious is that it is pretty cool tech to be bringing to market, and could be a remarkable leap forward in technology. The second, is that this will put additional pressure on Apple, because now, Samsung will truly have some fairly disruptive new tech before Apple does. It seems like 2012 is going to be an exciting year for tech-heads!

[Rumor] Quad-core Google Nexus Tablet for $199 to be made by Asus?

The latest rumors on the internet suggests Google plans to release a 7-inch $199 Nexus tablet. This rumor comes from two different industry sources who AndroidAndMe talked to at Mobile World Congress. As they have provided reliable information in the past, AndroidAndMe believes the sources are trustworthy. However, the sources rightfully want to remain anonymous.

According to the source, the tablet will be manufactured by ASUS and feature a 7-inch display along with the latest Google Android operating system (Ice Cream Sandwich). Inside, the rumored device features NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor.

Selling a full-featured Android tablet with all of Google’s mobile services and a quad-core Tegra 3 processor for only $199 would definitely bring some sales for Google and ASUS. It wouldn’t surprise us if there a 10 inch model was released and priced at $299 at the minimum. Sounds good don't it? Would you get one? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
