Toshiba AT200 Excite tablet goes on sale in the UK

OK, so Toshiba's initial Thrive tablet wasn't a world-shattering piece of technological or stylistic innovation. But those of you looking for a stylish entry in the tablet market have one more option today - at least if you live in the United Kingdom. The Toshiba AT200, alternately known as the Excite X10, is now on sale starting at £399 for the 16GB model and an extra fifty quid for the 32GB version.  At 7.7mm thin and weighing just 1.2 pounds, the AT200 is one of the thinnest and lightest 10-inch tablets on the market today. You can pick one up from Carphone Warehouse now, and they should start appearing in retail channels sometime next week.

Motorola DROID 4 hits Verizon on February 10th, along with BOGO RAZRs

After literally months of delays, Verizon is finally getting the high-end QWERTY LTE phone it's been lacking for so long. The latest batch of rumors turned out to be fairly accurate, and you can pick up the Motorola DROID 4 this Friday, February 10th. The cost will be $199.99 as expected, naturally including a two-year contract or extension. Rumored for most of the 4th quarter of 2011 and only officially verified at CES in January, the DROID 4 has been one of Verizon and Motorola's most protracted phones since the DROID BIONIC.

Motorola shipped just 1 million tablets in 2011

It's quarterly earnings season in the technology world, also known as the most breathlessly exciting time in a tech blogger's existence. Amid reports of an $80 million loss that the company attributes to expenses for the upcoming Google acquisition, Motorola noted that they sold just 200,000 XOOM tablets in the fourth quarter of 2011. Combined with the first three quarters and (low) early sales of the DROID XYBOARD tablets on Verizon, that makes for a rough figure of about 1 million tablets shipped.

Samsung hints at S-Pen stylus for tablets

Samsung's Galaxy Note is a surprise hit, due in no small part to its gigantic high-def Super AMOLED screen. But the company has always been bullish on the included stylus, which they refer to as the "S-Pen", as a method of interaction and content creation. In an interview with Laptop Magazine, Samsung marketing manager Ryan Bidan indicated that they're exploring options for bringing the active stylus technology to larger screens, presumably future models in the Galaxy Tab family.

LG Optimus Pad LTE specs now available

We'd seen some spyshots of the LG Optimus Pad LTE leak a while back, but now things are becoming more official. The tablet will be sporting an 8.9" IPS True HD display with a resolution of 1280x768. And for tablets, the 8MP rear camera will definitely set a new standard if the lens used is of decent quality. It will weigh out at 497g and at its thickest point it's only 9.34mm. Not the thinnest tablet - but still fairly decent.

ASUS Transformer Prime not receiving 3G in Q1

ASUS has said that a 3G version of its extremely popular Transformer Prime will not be coming into production by the end of Q1 - if at all. Actually, they even said "no such product exists on its current roadmap". For some, 3G capabilities within a device is their highest selling point - particularly to those who are always on the move and have no time for a dedicated WiFi connection.

Sony’s Tablet S gets a $100 price cut

Hey Sony, you know that the holidays are over now, right? Betanews reports that the company's primary Android Honeycomb tablet, the Tablet S, is seeing a permanent price reduction by a cool $100. That brings the 16GB version down to $399 (in line with the original Eee Pad Transformer) and the 32GB version down to $499, directly competing with the 16GB iPad 2. There's no word from Sony on the reasoning behind the price cut, but with low-cost Android tablets making a big splash this quarter, it's likely that sales of the Tablet S haven't been all that great.

Motorola DROID 4 renders don’t make the wait any easier

By all accounts, lots and lots of original Motorola DROID owners have upgraded to Verizon's Galaxy Nexus now that many of them are past their two-year upgrade point. But there's still something to be said for physical keyboards, and those waiting for a high-end QWERTY phone have been largely ignored on Verizon for the last several months. The DROID 4 has been eagerly awaited by those wishing for some LTE goodness mixed with RAZR styling, but the latest rumored date (yesterday) didn't pan out. In the meantime, have a gander at these renders dug up by Droid Life, covering every digital millimeter of the upcoming phone.
