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.

Motorola Xoom Review: The Future of Tablets (Whether You Like It or Not)

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.

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

Install Android 3.0 Honeycomb on the Nook Color

The best Android tablet is the Android tablet that can run Android 3.0 'Honeycomb'. And I guess that means the Nook Color, which has just received a port of Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Which you can install. Right now. Well, if you have a Nook Color, that is. Based on the Honeycomb SDK preview, the port isn't all the way… » 2/01/11 11:46am 2/01/11 11:46am
