Awhile back there was a little rumor going around that Sony was developing an Android tablet codenamed the 'S1'. After that initial rumor hit the internet, all went quiet, until now. Sony has confirmed they are working on an Android Tablet that will be available by the end Summer. Granted, as of late, lot of people miss the initial release dates.
It has been awhile since we had a really good rumor going around and why not on April Fools day, of all days, to have one come to light. Kyocera, the people who manufactured the slightly odd dual-screen Android phone called the Echo, are apparently developing a 'gaming tablet' for Android now. Mr. Blurry Cam got involved.
Samsung just got finished with their Unpacked event over at CTIA and have announced two new tablets coming our way very soon, summer in fact. The Galaxy Tablet 8.9 and the Galaxy Tablet 10.1 will be heading into our hands this summer with some seriously good pricing to top it all off. Oh, did we mention they are dual-core?
Earlier this year during CES 2011 we got to get a little up close and personal with the upcoming Toshiba dual-core Android tablet. This was also one of our top choices back then for Tegra 2 Android tablets and it still is to this day. Between the look, the nice back grip and just overall hardware, it is definitely a solid tablet.
Well as you may or may not have realized by now, the Motorola XOOM is now available for purchase. While you have to drop some heavy cash to get one, especially off contract for $799 and even on contract at $599, the fine folks over at XDA have discovered a way to save yourself $200 off the no contract pricing!
With all the companies getting into the Android tablet game these days, we are definitely not surprised to find out that information has been leaked out regarding an Android tablet that Sony (not Sony Ericsson) is developing. So far the specs are pretty impressive and as with all things Sony, the design is rather unique.
HTC announced their upcoming Android tablet, the HTC Flyer, at MWC today and it was sporting some pretty decent specs while others left you wondering "why?". The HTC Flyer is also their first Android device sporting the OnLive cloud gaming service which is no surprise after their $40 million invest into the company.
Honestly, we like the way things are going when it comes to promo videos these days, especially when it comes to tablets or unique Android devices like the Xperia Play which just recently featured it's rather twisted sweatshop-style surgery commercial showing the poor Android robot getting some thumbs.
One of the Android tablets that really stood out in the swarm that happen to be there at CES 2011 was the 10.1" Toshiba Android tablet. This particular tablet featured a Tegra 2 chip by nVidia, a nice big screen, 2 cameras, 3 ports and some really nice grip on the back which you can choose in 5 colors.
Not a lot of people have heard of ASRock or Pegatron, unless you are deep into the PC gaming scene, so hearing about two Android tablets coming from a motherboard manufacturer might not just tickle your fancy all that much. However, Pegatron is an OEM division of Asus and ASRock motherboards have been sponsored by Fatal1ty.
Tablets are apparently the next big thing and so far have demonstrated themselves to be fantastic mobile gaming platforms. Manufacturers are racing to compete with Apple's iPad making use of Google's mobile OS to bring dozens of quality products, and hundreds of not-so-great products to market. Here are just a few tablets we expect this week and next at CES.
