  • Why Honeycomb Needs To Ramp Up Its Marketing Mojo

    Why Honeycomb Needs To Ramp Up Its Marketing Mojo

    Marcia Marcia Marcia! As it was in the Brady Bunch, so it is in real life. Like Marcia, the iPad is getting all the attention. Honeycomb tabs are living a life of obscurity, unable to get a footing in the general consumer mindset, and are genrally as unlikable as an unloved middle sister. Why? Marketing. Apple is good at it and Honeycomb tab makers are bad at it. It’s that… Read More

    The 5 Honeycomb Features Currently Missing In Action

    I’m currently wrapping up a review of the latest Honeycomb tablet, the Toshiba Thrive. Quick spoiler, it’s one of my favorite Android tablets yet, but I still wouldn’t buy it nor recommend it to anyone outside the dedicated Android fanbase. Just like the rest of the Honeycomb tablets, it lacks any compelling feature over the iPad. Don’t mistake what I’m saying here. Read More

    Lenovo Outs The ThinkPad Tablet, An Android Tablet You Might Actually Want

    Last week I tuned into a press preview of today’s Lenovo announcement. It was an online presentation so, you know, I went on and did other things while half listening. I was nearly ready to close the tab after listening to 20 minutes of some product manager explaining every little detail about the consumer-oriented IdeaPad K1 Honeycomb tablet. All he really had to say was, “We made… Read More

  • Sony S1 And S2 Tablets Get Release Date Clarified: "Fall" Is Now "September"


    Amid the abundance of nearly indistinguishable Android tablets out there right now, we’re actually excited for Sony’s S1 and S2 tablets, which have interesting form factors and a Playstation pedigree. In April we heard they’d be getting a global release “this fall,” and that appears to be true, as Engadget has received information that the tablets would be… Read More

  • Galaxy Tab Seven Will Run Gingerbread 2.3.4

    The original GalTab is a tough beast to love. It ran an outdated version of Android in the face of an onslaught of Honeycomb tablets (remember, this was November 2010 when it was launched) and everyone hated on it for being underpowered. Well, the next version should be a bit swifter and, more importantly, run an updated version of Android Gingerbread, 2.3.4. Read More

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Hits NYC June 8, Everywhere Else June 17

    Even though we have to deal with 100-degree summers and 15-degree winters, hobos on the subway, and slow-walking tourists, sometimes it really pays off to be a New Yorker. Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy Tab 10.1 won’t hit stores nationally until June 17, but a few lucky New Yorkers, and possibly some smart-shopping tourists, will be able to pick up a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1… Read More

  • Fujitsu To Bring Out 7-Inch Android Tablet This Year

    Just last week had Fujitsu announcing the TH40/D, a 10-inch convertible Windows tablet/notebook. It’s actually aimed more at the enterprise market, but Digitimes reports they have an option coming for consumers as well. It’ll be smaller, with a 7-inch screen, but it’s not clear whether it will have the stylus support and keyboard of the TH40/D. Read More

  • Dell's 10-Inch Streak Pro Gets A Few Details

    Hold onto your seats everybody. The Dell Streak’s big brother, the Streak Pro (it just doesn’t sound good, does it) has gotten a few extremely predictable specs. Are you ready to be underwhelmed?! Read More

  • Honeycomb Has A Fighting Chance Against The iPad

    If you’d asked me a week ago what I thought about Honeycomb, the tablet version of Android, I would have said that it was in very bad shape and that it would be several months before it could even hold a candle to the iPad 2. Because despite my excitement to see Android take on Apple’s ridiculously successful iPad, my experience with the Motorola Xoom — the first Honeycomb… Read More

  • The Viewsonic Viewpad 7x Does 7-inches Of Honeycomb

    Right now there’s no such thing as a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet. There isn’t one on the market. (okay, I looked, but I just know someone is going to link to one in the comments) The Viewsonic Viewpad 7x might be the first one. Pocket-Lint heard through “reliable sources” that said tablet is in the batter’s box, ready to step up to the plate at a Taipei trade conference. Read More

  • The Five (Minor) Differences Between The Motorola Xoom And Acer Iconia Tab

    The march towards the generic Android tablet has begun. Most of the first Honeycomb tablets are indistinguishable from each other save one or two tiny differences. The Xoom hit the market first and still has arguably the best reviews while the G-Slate made a name for itself with 3D movies. Then there’s the Asus Transformer with its $150 optional keyboard dock and the Acer Iconia Tab… Read More
