The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is amazing in two ways.
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…
Apps are the most important part of any tablet right now. But great apps need great hardware to run.
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…
Best Buy has a pre-order page for the Motorola Xoom, which we're going to assume officializes the price and release date of the first best Android 3.0 tablet. It's going to cost $800, which is a good chunk of change, and release on February 24th, which is this week. You can find out more about the Xoom at Best Buy here
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.
Google is showing off Android 3.0 Honeycomb tomorrow. Which means there'll be a lot of love shown toward Android tablets. But what else will Google show off? Androidandme has a source that says we might see two things Android users have long been waiting for: a web-based Android Market and Google Music. Hopefully it…
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…
We got a video teaser of Google's tablet-friendly Honeycomb OS yesterday, but at Verizon's CES keynote this morning Google was on hand for a live demo. It looks beeeeautiful. Updated with video.
Is there a different way to design a tablet? If so, Asus is going to find it! Their new Android slabs are all special snowflakes—including the QWERTY keyboard-hiding, Tegra 2- and Android 3.0-equipped Eee Pad Slider.
The default Android music player is a dark and dreary piece of software, that's routinely shamed by the custom media options supplied with HTC's Sense skin and even the likes of Motoblur. But it's about to get better.
Google is showing off an early build of their Android 3.0 software, which appears to be heavily optimized for tablets (including the Motorola prototype it's running on) and has been given a cloudy release window of "next year."
