TAG | 10 inch

You all know the Android tablet, manufactured by Motorola, which Andy Rubin showed during Dive into Mobile last week, while presenting the new Android 3.0 Honeycomb and Google Maps 5 – well it seems that some more details about this tablet have leaked out in the wild, including a photo of the device. It seems that Andy Rubin is not the only guy who has the upcoming Motorola’s tablet, as the source of the leaked information is Taiwan, the website Mobile01.

It is said that Motorola will manufacture the tablet in 2 versions – a 7-inch one and a 10-inch. Furthermore, each one will be available in UMTS, CDMA and LTE network support. Among the rest rumored specifications (some of them are already confirmed by A. Rubin, like the Tegra 2 platform) include:

  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 T20 Dual-Core Chipset
  • 1280 x 800 WXGA resolution
  • 32GB internal storage
  • Gyroscope
  • 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front-facing one

Rumors also claim that the device itself is pretty light and that it is ready for the market, but still there is no information from Motorola about the tablet itself and possible release date and price. However, the hardware seem pretty good and the fact that it will be running Honeycomb + the option for 7 or 10-inch one would definitely make this a desired toy for many people. Probably the era of Samsung Galaxy Tab will end soon and a new one is about to begin? Stay tuned for more information about the upcoming Motorola Tablet.

It seems that the famous notebook (and recently handset) manufacturer has decided to step into the Android device market, introducing two new tablets – a 10-inch one and a 7-inch, together with a mobile phone/tablet, having a 4.8-inch display.

But let’s first begin with the big boy – a 10-inch tablet that is expected to be released in April, featuring “full Android tablet experience” whatever it means. But we all hope that Acer will integrate Android 2.3 Gingerbread into it. The tablet will have a 1GHz dual core processor, 1280×800 pixels resolution, Flash 10.1 support (so at least Android 2.2 installed), HDMI output and a 4MP camera. The body is just 13.3mm thick and is made of aluminum. Sounds pretty good and if combined with a pleasant price, this tablet will definitely be the favorite toy for many people.

But what if you are not into those big 10-inch tablets and would like something smaller, that you can put into your bigger pocket or in your ladies handbag? Acer have prepared something for you, too. They will release a 7-inch tablet as well, expected to hit the markets again in April. It will have again a double-core Qualcomm processor, but this time running at 1.2GHz frequency, Flash 10.1 support, resolution of 1280×800 pixels again (pretty nice resolution for a 7-incher), Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity (let’s hope it won’t be locked to certain carriers), 5MP rear camera and “HD” front-facing one for video calls and last but not least – DLNA support. It is supposed that the 7-incher will be running on Android 2.2 FroYo.

Creative goes Android too

Today there is plenty of news coming from the famous audio-oriented manufacturer Creative. We all know their sound cards for computers, portable media players and headphones. But today they have surprised us, presenting two new devices – one is an Android powered PMP (looks like Philips is not the only one who will launch such device) and … Android powered series of tablets, called Ziio.

But let’s begin with the portable media player, called Zen Touch 2. The first noticeable think when one looks at its computer generated pictures is that the icons on the buttons are facing left, suggesting that the device is intended to be used in landscape mode. As for the rest of the hardware, Zen Touch 2 hides in itself 3.2-inch screen, Bluetooth 2.1 support, 802.11 b/g/n (nice to see a support of “n” networks), 2MP camera (not much but.. hey guys, this is media player, not a camera), GPS, FM radio and all of this powered by Android 2.1. Sounds pretty good? Yeah, until you see that it will have a resistive touchscreen display. The player is expected to be released soon in 2 versions – one with 8GB memory and one with 16GB with prices starting from 279$.

Talking about the upcoming Ziio tablets, there will be 2 devices – one 7 and one 10 inch. Both will be running Android 2.1 (it seems that Creative are not keen on FroYo J ) and will be available in different memory configurations. They will also have a front facing camera on board, built in microphone, an accelerometer, microSD card slot, GPS, FM radio and a composite video-out connection. I guess that you expect some fancy audio equipment on board and sound optimizations and you are right – Creative will be using their X factor – named X-Fi Crystalizer which restores the lost data from CD ripping, and X-Fi Expand. Again a drawback is the resistive touchscreen, but the custom UI of Creative makes the navigation a bit easier. Both devices will be available from December for 199.99 pounds for the 7-inch, 8GB going up to 369.99 pounds for the 10-inch 16GB model.
