Nokia is not dead (yet?), but their phones are. The company's latest attempt to be popular again is the Nokia N1, an new Android tablet announced a few months back. The good news is Nokia delivered a very good tablet at a very competitive price. The bad news? We still don't know if it's coming to the US.
Tablets. Tablets. Tablets. iPads, Android tablets, $99 Touchpads, everyone wants to make a tablet. Hell, even Gamestop—the brick and mortar video game store—wants to build their own. I'm not kidding, they're making an Android-powered tablet that's good at games.
Oh, Cisco. I appreciate that you're elbowing your way to a seat at the Android tablet table. Everyone else is! But dropping a $750 Android slate on an unsuspecting enterprise market is not how you make friends, Cisco.
Panasonic's venerable Toughbook line is introducing a 10.1-inch Android tablet. Unlike the sissy tablets everyone else is putting out, the Toughbook will be secure, rugged, durable and, hell, even come with a matte screen.
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…
A minor but aggravating double standard has been overturned: Verizon has waived its $35 Android tablet activation fee, retroactive to March 1st. There had been no such surcharge for iPad purchases, because honestly what is an activation fee, anyway? Other than, you know, a way to squeeze every last bit of blood from…
Someone at LG decided it would be a great idea to tie in a video of their LG Optimus Pad tablet with Optimus Prime. Not only that, they have fake Optimus Prime fight fake Megatron, who's not-so-subtly the robot manifestation of Apple's iPad. None of this makes any sense, which is why it is kind of incredible that it…
The Motorola Xoom Tablet might not have an operating system that's "finished", but it is still the most promising Android tablet so far. That's because of its tablet-oriented Honeycomb OS, but it's also because it's a nice tablet. [Motorola Xoom]
The Nook Color's built on top of Android, but seemed crippled in its potential to be a killer Android tablet by the way it'd run apps. Well, the reality is, it could be a solid little Android tablet after all.
According to this leaked slide, the Samsung Galaxy Tab will cost $399 with new 2-year contract on T-Mobile. As Sprint was rumored to charge that much too, 400 buckaroos will probably be the Galaxy Tab's price on all the carriers.
What we once knew as the Toshiba SmartPad will now be known as the Toshiba Folio 100. Along with the name change, specs for the Folio 100 have leaked and it's supposed to run Android 2.2.
After confusing the world by saying it would use Windows EC7 as the OS for its upcoming 10.1" EP101TC EeePad, Asus has now seen sense—and stuck Android in the thing instead. Goodbye, familiar bland Microsoft leafy background image.
