3G Nook Discontinued Due to Lack of Demand

We've heard countless reports of just how well the NOOK eBook reader has been doing. It seems that Barnes & Noble were not even expecting the numbers they are seeing. But with an Android-based color eReader, how could they go wrong? Well it seems the 3G version isn't selling as much as expected and it's on track to be discontinued.

G-Slate Finally Spotted, There’s the 3D Camera

The LG G-Slate has been the tablet talk outside of its disappointing presence at this year's CES. Rumors have been circulating that it would feature a glasses-free 3D display, but these were quickly disputed and replaced with a rumor of the inclusion of a 3D camera. It looks as if we have finally gotten an image of the device and we can clearly see the pair of cameras.

T-Mobile Face Slaps iPhone 4 on Verizon in New HSPA+ 4G Ad [Video]

In this brand new ad made to make it look like iPhone 4 is a newb with two suited jerks who are terrible at running, T-Mobile uses a fancy lady to punch the non-Android competition directly in the nose. Take a peek as T-Mobile notes how totally slow 3G is and how amazingly blazingly fast their HSPA+ 4G network is in comparison. Actual speeds aside, this is a pretty good foot stomp.

Dell Streak 7 (aka M02M/Looking Glass) hits FCC with T-Mo/AT&T 3G

Dell's M02M Looking Glass tablet has been caught crossing the FCC, complete with UMTS/WCDMA support for both AT&T and T-Mobile USA. The filing for the M02M - which is believed to have a 7-inch display and run NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chipset - also lists WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. There's also a SIM card slot and an SD card slot, both accessed via a door on the side of the Looking Glass; it's unclear at this stage whether the tablet will be able to make voice calls, like the Dell Streak or not. It also seems that the back panel is non-removable, suggesting a non-user-replaceable battery. We're expecting to see the Looking Glass launch at CES 2011 next month as the Dell Streak 7.

NEC dual-screen Android tablet & Android netbook incoming

NEC will launch a dual-touchscreen version of their LifeTouch/Smartia tablet at CES 2011 next month, though full details of the presumably clamshell device are currently unknown. According to PC World, the tablet - which will also carry the LifeTouch brand - has a pair of 7-inch touchscreens which can show different information simultaneously. There's also confirmed WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity, but the version of Android NEC expects to use is unclear. The company will also be showing an Android-based netbook. Note, the image here is just a mockup. [via SlashGear]

Aigo aigopad N700 Tegra 2 tablet launches

Aigo's aigopad N700 has finally gone on sale, albeit in Asia for the moment, with the 7-inch multitouch MID getting a welcome makoever from when we last saw renders. The 380g unit runs Android 2.1 on an NVIDIA  Tegra 2 processor, with 512MB of RAM, up to 32GB of storage and an HDMI output. Connectivity includes WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and 3G for voice and data, along with USB, audio in/out and docking connectors. There's also a 1.3-megapixel webcam, accelerometer and digital compass, together with a custom Freedom River UI of Aigo's own making. No official word on battery life, though Aigo is apparently saying the N700 will last for up to sixty days in standby. It's priced at 2999 yuan ($452); no talk of when a North American or European launch may take place. [gallery] [via Pocketables]

Samsung Galaxy Tab for Verizon Won’t be Getting Skype 3G Calling

The surprise that the US-based versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet device won't feature 3G calling support has probably worn off by now, but there's still a few surprises in store for those who may have thought something would have changed by now. (Especially considering the international versions of the tablet feature the ability to do it.) But, it looks like there's not a chance that you'll even be making any 3G calls over Skype, as the feature has been denied.

Notion Ink gets real on battery estimates

Notion Ink has released a list of ways you'll be able to drain your Adam tablet's battery in around six hours, as a counterpoint to earlier talk of over fifteen hours of "normal" use.  1080p HD video playback at full brightness and volume will do it, the company says, together with playing a 3D augmented reality game with camera input and 3G or WiFi for data. Solid YouTube or other Flash video playback over wireless will also sap power quickly, as will streaming 3D maps over 3G and using the hardware GPS receiver.  Finally, recording HD video using the Adam's rotating camera and streaming it via WiFi is apparently a sure-fire way to drain the tablet in record time. To be fair, none of that is especially surprising, but it does raise a couple of interesting use-cases, particularly the HD streaming potential.  We've seen apps like Qik do real-time video uploads, but the quality is generally well short of HD.
