What People are Really Doing with Their Tablets

Written on April 12, 2011 by Chris Martin

Comments Off

With tablets inching its way in replacing the laptops as a mobile computing device, it’s inevitable to ask the tablet-universe denizens on what they use their devices for. Good thing Google’s AdMob was up to the task as they polled tablet-owners in the U.S. on what they were doing on the devices. Is it for checking e-mails? Reading the digital newspapers, shopping online, playing games?

Well, the results definitely left a lot of people stagger as it seems the tablet is not only here to clash against the laptops, but most likely against the handheld gaming consoles as well (no surprise there, folks).

Check out the chart after the break!

Sales of Motorola Xoom, down to 100,000 Units

Written on April 07, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

With Apple's iPad 2 on the rise, what will happen to Motorola Xoom's false start?

Motorola Xoom has been barred by an expensive initial price, low-build quality and what seems to be a general absence of interests on tablets other than iPad. Motorola originally estimated to sell three to five million units this year. However, the company sharply deducted its production orders. Obviously, Apple’s iPad 2 fails to raise the tide for other tablets.

The Motorola Xoom was the first tablet to come with Android 3.0 Honeycomb. It was initially billed as faster than iPad, with Adobe Flash support, and with more engrossing 3D user interface. However, the release of iPad 2 erased it. Hence, Motorola’s false start with the Xoom poses a threat to people’s insight about Google’s Android Honeycomb. More than that, it can blight similar offerings from Samsung, Acer and Toshiba this summer.

If that will be the case, where will Motorola Xoom and other Honeycomb tablets go from here?

Every year, followers of open source software are likely to predict that this year will be for Linux desktop. But guess what?

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!
