The China tablets are getting more and more attractive for each day. Here's an online shop that specializes in quality Android tablets from China that we can highly recommend:
Yesterday, Google gave us Android Developers a new toy to play with. A preview version of the new Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Honeycomb is designed especially with tablets in mind, and this shows. Here are some of the high lights of the new release.
The release of Honeycomb means that we can see app developers start creating tablet adapted versions of old apps, and create new tablet specific apps.
So the race is on. Who will have the first Honeycomb adapted app on the Android Market? Wish us good luck :) Although, there are no tablets running the Android 3.0 out yet, so Honeycomb apps can't expect high number of downloads.
Jan 20, 2011 - Review of Zenithink eTab 10' Tablet with 2.1
We've finished our first review of a low price China manufactured tablet today. The ZT is a good tablet, with a nice big screen, but we're only half impressed. Read more about what we think about it here.
In the coming few weeks you'll see reviews of the most interesting Android tablets released from China last year, as well as previews of some tablets to be released this year.
So join us in our quest for finding the ultimate bargain tablets for everyones needs.
It's not a cheap China tablet, but I still can't help adding this video. It's a demo/preview of the Motorola Xoom, which will be running Honeycomb (Android 3.0). Sweet.
Unfortunately, it seems the Xoom will only be available with a Verizon Data Plan. I guess I'll just have to wait for the Chinese knock-off version later this year instead :)
Google released a preview of Android 3.0 on youtube. See the video here.
Looks fantastic, but unfortunately it will be a while before we see this on any tablet made in China. In the meantime, Android 2.2 is gaining share in the tablet market and it's just a matter of time before Android 2.3 is there too.
Android's latest released version, 2.3, a k a Gingerbread, was pushed to the Android Open Source Project today. This probably means that some poor souls will be working over the holidays, putting together new firmwares for Android Tablets. Bad news for them, perhaps, but good news for us who are waiting for a somewhat more tablet friendly version of Android.
Gingerbread is a step on the way towards Android 3.0, a k a Honeycomb, which is designed specifically for the larger tablet screens.
