1st of this month and foreseen for months. What we've got here is two tablets, one of them an 8-inch tablet by the name of 80 G9, the other a 10-inch tablet by the name of 101 G0. Both of these tablets have Android 3.1, both of them have the Android Market inside out of the box, and both have the option to work with a 250GB hard drive.
the next Nexus T, aka the next hero Google device. This device was the United States version of Japan's Toshiba Regza, both of these devices essentially one in the same save for the Japanese version's silver back as opposed to the Thrive's black. We've heard of major delays for this device as well as prices sitting right around $429 or so with a few snips up or down here and there today. Finally, only a week ago we were told there were going to be pre-orders for this tablet sooner than later. What have we learned today?
review not long ago of the Galaxy 10.1 that was handed out at Google I/O and we liked the thing pretty well. The tablet we laid our hands on was packing Android 3.0.1 under the hood. There is now evidence surfacing directly from Samsung that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 may in fact be packing Android 3.1 when it hits stores.
here, or just keep checking out AndroidCommunity.com for all the latest news. Today they talked about the Android Market a bit, and about the changes we can all expect to see soon. We just saw a brand new Android Market running on a Nexus S that looked strikingly similar to Honeycomb's Android Market, could it be Ice Cream Sandwich or just an updated market app?
I/O here. There were so many announcements about Android Ice Cream Sandwich, and Android 3.1 Honeycomb updates and more. For those that might have missed it Android 3.0 Honeycomb is being officially upgraded to 3.1 and the roll-out started OTA yesterday. From the Google event word was spread that it was for 3G only, and Wifi Xooms would have to wait a few weeks.
Android 3.1 upgrade, announced earlier this week at Google IO. As expected, the Verizon version of the XOOM will get the update first, with the new software rolling out this week. As for those with WiFi-only XOOM tablets, or those with the 3G version but on carriers other than Verizon Wireless, they'll be getting Android 3.1 "within the next several weeks." That staggered release schedule is likely to come as something of a disappointment. The OS will be pushed out in phases, so don't be surprised if you don't get it at the same time as all your XOOM-owning friends. Among the changes will be support for Android Market movie rentals, Flash Player 10.2 support, resizable widgets, USB peripheral support and boosted Bluetooth support. More details in the video below: [vms 3575f29eab4bac787b91] Update: Interestingly, despite Motorola's warnings that WiFi XOOM owners will have to wait, there are reports from owners on XDA-developers that in fact the Android 3.1 update is rolling out now.
