Toshiba Android 3.0 Honeycomb Tablet to top iPad 2

It looks like Toshiba is getting ready to release an Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet in the near future. According to a General Manager of Toshiba. He goes on to mention that it will not only compete with Apple's iPad 2, but that it will beat it and will be superior. That is a lot to stack up against, we know. The Motorola Xoom holds it's own though, and it does it well.

Google Instant Preview comes to Android

Google Instant Previews, the search feature that shows snapshots of web pages along side search results has finally made its way to Android and iPhone handsets. Users of Android must have vs. 2.2 (Froyo) or above, while iPhone users must have iOS 4.0 and above to take advantage of the new search feature.

Samsung may unveil 8.9″ Galaxy Tab later in March

Samsung may be unveiling their new 8.9" Galaxy Tab at a press event on March 22, in Orlando, Florida. The news comes from an image on Samsung's facebook page with a cryptic reference to the numbers "78910", which many believe points to an 8.9" tablet since the original Galaxy Tab is 7" and Samsung unveiled a 10.1" tablet at CES. So an 8.9 inch tablet would fit right in the middle and make for a good mid-range size. But is there really a need for something in between the two existing sizes?

Motorola XOOM Street Egg Ad Released

Holy crap this commercial is short and sweet. You know that Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet that's about to come out to the world officially this Thursday? The one we've had our hands on a couple times, a couple different versions over the past few weeks, the one that Google worked directly with Motorola to optimize as a flagship tablet for their tablet-centric mobile OS? Well check it out, there's an official advertisement out for it now, and it's 16 seconds long. Insane.

Honeycomb gets ported to the HTC Desire

As we all know, the beauty of the Android system is that it's open source. That not only breeds a myriad of handsets powered by it, but since there's no big bad developer looking to sue for playing with the source code, it also means some pretty slick home-brew solutions to breathe new life in handsets that are starting to show their age. Witness this cool porting of Android 3 (Honeycomb) to the HTC Desire. No, it's not an amalgam of Ice Cream and Honeycomb, it's an early full on Honeycomb build. And it actually works ... sort of.

Xeta concept phone boosts specs for Honeycomb

It's called the Xeta, and it's a simple, yet elegant concept phone created by designer Frank Tobias for Sony Ericsson. On it's face, it may look like just another Android phone. But looks are deceiving. Check out what may be under the hood. Designed to run the very tablet centric Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the Xeta is to be powered by a 2Ghz dual core CPU running the Sony Mobile Bravia Engine. Which is plenty of power to support a massive 4.2 inch multitouch display that nearly covers the entire phone. Layout wise, the Xeta looks to sport three buttons including a center square that suspiciously looks like a "cut and paste" of an Apple mobile device power button.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Hands-on [Video]

Looking at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, it's easy to notice more than just the larger screen. This follow-up to the original Galaxy Tab concept is more powerful thanks to the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor working in concert with Android 3.0 to do all the heavy lifting. And although it is designed to go head to head with the iPad, it's actually lighter than it's Cupertino cousin.

HTC Forest Concept Phone Employs Trackball and Mystery Android OS

Here at Android Community, and indeed at the R3 network as a whole, we really love a good concept here and there, especially when that concept is a bit of industrial design along the lines of a smartphone. We like it DOUBLY when we find out it's an Android phone, just like that's happened here with the HTC Forest, a concept phone by Long-Nong Huang. Before we go any further - can you guess its prospective specs?
