Finally, a Decent Honeycomb Tablet For Less Than the iPad 2

Okay, maybe it's a little too early to say for sure just how good the 10.1-inch Acer Iconia Tab A500 is, but the specs—1GHz Tegra guts, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage 1280x800 LCD screen, 2MP and 5MP front and rear-facing cameras, etc.—put it up there with the elite guard of Android tablets. And its price tag of $450 makes it… » 4/08/11 8:40am 4/08/11 8:40am

Motorola Xoom Review: The Future of Tablets (Whether You Like It or…

It's taken almost a year to get here. The first tablet to matter since the original iPad. The Xoom is the first real Android tablet, arriving ahead of the iPad 2 by a hair. Since it's living in the "year of iPad 2," as Apple put it, it seemed only fitting to wait to drop judgment until we'd seen everything the iPad 2 had … » 3/03/11 12:30pm 3/03/11 12:30pm

What the iPad 2 Needs to Steal From Android and WebOS

Motorola and HP proved that companies can make tablets with UI as usable, if not more so, than the iPad. Now, with the iPad 2 being announced next week, Apple is the one that needs to play catch-up to others. But is it possible without drastically retooling iOS? » 2/23/11 3:30pm 2/23/11 3:30pm

The Motorola Xoom Really Is $800 (But There's a $600 Wi-Fi Version Too)

Okay, so the standard Motorola Xoom with 3G really does cost $800 unsubsidized, as a leaked Best Buy ad showed last week. That sucks, because there's only one 3G model. There's no word on the crippled Wi-Fi—the fine print in the Best Buy ad mentioned Wi-Fi was locked down unless you activated one month of data service. » 2/16/11 11:49am 2/16/11 11:49am

LG G-Slate Actually Looks Like a Real G

LG's G-Slate could be a dark horse in the Great Android Tablet sweepstakes. Sure, this video doesn't do much more than tick off spec after spec, but those specs are actually pretty nice! Now just don't go charging $800 for it and you might just have my undivided attention. [BGR] » 2/08/11 10:07am 2/08/11 10:07am

The First Good Android Tablet Has Locked Down Wi-Fi and Costs $800,

The Motorola Xoom sure has a lot of whizbang stuff inside: Crazy dual-core processors! Nvidia graphics! HD camcorder! 1GB RAM! Front camera! 3G that's somehow magically upgradeable to 4G! But, uh, it's eight hundred dollars. And it gets worse. » 2/06/11 11:58pm 2/06/11 11:58pm

Using Google's Android 3.0 Tablet, the First Real iPad Fighter

This is how an Android tablet should feel. Android 3.0 running on Motorola's Xoom tablet is almost iPad-like, a legitimate threat to the only successful tablet on the market right now. It's about damn time! » 2/02/11 3:01pm 2/02/11 3:01pm

A Video Preview of Android 3.0 'Honeycomb'

Like we've seen in bits before, Android 3.0 'Honeycomb' was designed with tablets in mind. That means bigger animations, more useful widgets, a new tablet-optimized Gmail, and even Google Talk video chat. Looks awesome. Check it out! [AndroidPolice] » 1/05/11 4:58pm 1/05/11 4:58pm
