Medion used IFA 2011 as a platform to announce its new Android tablet and smartphone, packing proper (i.e. not old) versions of Google's OS and looking anything but budget.

Pocket-lint took a trip over to the Medion booth to see the new toys in action, but sadly we weren't allowed to take pics of the tablet and the phone was chained to a desk, so you'll just have to take our word for it when we say that they didn't look half-bad.

The tablet - the Medion Lifetab P9514 - is the latest 10-incher to join the Tegra 2 chip, packing Nvidia's chip to run Honeycomb 3.2. It weighs 720g and will initially come in just one storage size flavour - although it hasn't yet been decided if that's 16GB or 32GB.

It comes pre-loaded with Docs to Go, which is a Pocket-lint favourite, has HDMI and USB connectivity, along with Wi-Fi and UMTS / HSDPA, and will even play nicely with your home network thanks to its DLNA capabilities.

The smartphone is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread device and has navigation firmly at the forefront of its raison d'être.

This 4.3-inch device comes loaded with Medion's GoPal satnav app, and also offers a 5-megapixel camera. Apart from that not a lot else is known at this point.

Both devices are expected to land in Q4 - no word on pricing as of yet.
