Cyanogen - and today the worlds most notorious fire-sale-ridden tablet, the HP TouchPad, appears to be booting the best. But wait a second, doesn't the HP TouchPad run webOS? Why, yes it does, but as the $99 sale of said tablet made the entirety of its stock go down to zero after HP announced they were canning their webOS hardware department, Android was a certain next step - and these days, one step after Android equals Cyanogen.
iconic CEO Steve Jobs resigns, and a bundle of Android OS software updates.
Android ports were already under way and a few days later one was spotted running Android 2.2.1 out of the box, right from Best Buy.
fire sale of their Touchpad tablet for just $99. With a price this low, demand soared as HP tried to unload their remaining stock. I was one of those lucky/persistent enough to grab one from HP, but when I already have a Galaxy Tab 10.1 from IO, what would I want one for?
went on a firesale and is now in the bargain bin. The specs compare to that of the HTC Sensation with that 1.2 Ghz dual-core Qualcomm processor, but with a 9.7" 1024x768 IPS display. All that running Android sounds like something I'd be okay with.
will arrive in September or October 2011, according to company CEO Yang Yuanqing. While the exec failed to detail any of the new tablet's hardware specifications - we're guessing it will continue to use Android as the OS - he did say that it would be slimmer than the current model. Interestingly, Yuanqing also revealed that the new model had been developed in parallel with the existing LePad, with a different team taking responsibility for its design. It's not the first talk we've heard of a tablet OEM looking to shift around control of a tablet project in an attempt to better take on the iPad 2, though Lenovo hasn't said anything about changing the second LePad's focus, only that the decision helped ready the new model in just nine months. The CEO also suggested that Lenovo's two advantages in China were brand recognition and pricing, which suggests the second-gen model will also undercut the iPad 2. [via Engadget]
PreCentral is only really interested in the HP Touchpad and a new 7-inch webOS tablet, the HP Opal, but also in the line-up are 10-inch slates from HTC, Dell, Acer and Toshiba, all due in June 2011. There's also a 7-inch Acer running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and expected to launch in April for $399. The remainder get Android 3.0 Honeycomb, with the HTC unpriced but Dell's 10-inch model expected to be $499, Acer's to be $449 and Toshiba's to be $499. The two Acer models are likely to be the Iconia Tab A100 and Iconia Tab A500, which we played with back at MWC 2011 in February. HTC has been tipped to be readying a 10-inch model for some time now, launching with Honeycomb out of the gate rather than Gingerbread like the HTC Flyer. [via SlashGear]
