    Sprint And Motorola Party Like It’s 2010: Motorola XPRT Finally Gets A Taste Of Gingerbread

    Now that Motorola is owned by Google, you may think that past and present Motorola devices should get the latest and best version of Android. With Sprint announcing quietly on its forum that the Motorola XPRT will be updated to Android Gingerbread (2.3), it shows once again that the update rollout process for Android is broken — Android 2.3 was released two years ago.

  • Report: Asus Retains Previous Tablet Forecasts, No Plans To Cut Prices

    Report: Asus Retains Previous Tablet Forecasts, No Plans To Cut Prices

    Asus does not plan on participating on the recent tablet price cutting wars. CEO Jerry Shen will not race RIM or HTC to the bottom and currently has no plans to cut the original Transformer’s price. This comes by way of a Digitimes report that also states the company is on schedule to launch the second generation Transformer tablet for $499 and meet their initial shipment forecast. Read More

  • Archos Q9 Tablet Is A Beefy, Honeycomb-Running Machine

    The Archos G9 tablet comes in two flavors, 8-inch and 10-inch, and runs Honeycomb 3.2.

  • Toshiba Unveils The Thinnest Honeycomb Tablet Yet, The 7.7mm-thick AT200

    Toshiba Unveils The Thinnest Honeycomb Tablet Yet, The 7.7mm-thick AT200

    Just like the rumor stated, Toshiba used IFA 2011 to announce its latest Android tablet and it’s just as tiny as it looked. The AT200 packs a 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4430 CPU, up to 64GB of memory, and most of the ports that made the Toshiba Thrive popular: micro-USB, microSD, and micro-HDMI. Toshiba claims that the battery is good for “eight hours of video consumption.” The… Read More

  • Sony Finally Fully Unveils Its Android Tabs, The Sony S and P

    Sony Finally Fully Unveils Its Android Tabs, The Sony S and P

    “It’s not about who makes them first, but who makes them better.” That’s how Sony’s Sir Howard Stringer announced his upcoming tablets. Zing. Meet the S and P, everyone. Sony just took the wraps off its first generation Android tablets a few moments ago at its 2011 IFA press event. But, as with most non-Apple product launches these days, there isn’t much… Read More

  • The HTC Puccini Tab Nears Release, But Is There Room For Yet Another Honeycomb Tab?

    The HTC Puccini Tab Nears Release, But Is There Room For Yet Another Honeycomb Tab?

    HTC is prepping its first Honeycomb tab for release. Previous rumors placed the Puccini hitting the shelves sometime at the end of August or early September. That seems slightly more likely per a new report that states “late Q3 or early Q4.” But the question remains, does the market need another Honeycomb tablet, even one as powerful as the Puccini, when Ice Cream Sandwich is… Read More

  • Honeycomb Hits The Logitech Revue, But You Have To Really Want It

    Honeycomb Hits The Logitech Revue, But You Have To Really Want It

    GTVHackers has released an Android 3.1 beta built specifically for the Logitech Revue Google TV device. The hitch? It’s not quite ready for public consumption, it could destroy your user experience, and you could end up with a GTV that can’t be restored to its original OS or that is completely bricked. You can download the update here and instructions are here. Read More

  • 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

    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

    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
