Motorola’s Tablet Evolution Hints Honeycomb

It has begun. Apple and Samsung may have their multi-billion dollar knees shaking right now as Motorola unveils its teaser for the CES 2011. And there's nothing else to say but 'Whoah'.

Geared with its new red logo, Motorola takes on the competition as they begin to enter the tablet market with a delightful and provocative trailer that shoots down other brands in a very entertaining and humorous concept of evolution. They called iPad “a bigger iPhone” and Samsung Galaxy “an Android OS for a phone,” and now they’re taking it up a notch as they teased a hint of Honeycomb thanks to a random bee stinging the Motorola logo and Andy Rubin’s demonstration of the next-gen version of Android on a Motorola tablet at D: Dive Into Mobile.

Watch the teaser after the break!

Android Tablets or no Android Tablets

Written on September 15, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

At the eve of the first generation Android tablet launch, Google waves a red flag. Android 2.2 (Froyo) is not up for the job, admits the Director of Products for Mobile Hugo Barra.

Samsung Galaxy Tab is set to hit the shelves tomorrow, September 16, and previews have been pretty positive. Froyo sounds fine with Samsung. So why is Froyo having problems with the others?

It seems that the issue roots from Google’s Compatibility Definition whose document details out: “Hardware must have a rear-facing camera, GPS, a 3-axis compass, 3-axis accelerometer, and more.” If a hardware piece does not comply, Google will not allow an Android Market for it.

The Tab’s difference among the rest is that it comes out as a big smartphone, implying that it fulfills all the compatibility requirements from Google. But as all with the others, it will run Android apps similar to running iPhone apps on the iPad. With the anticipation that is arriving with the holiday season, consumers must be wary of what Android-based tablet should they buy and, probably, hopefully wait for the next generation of Android tablets to come.
