Motorola LTE-Enabled XOOM Crosses FCC. And There was Much Rejoicing

You waited, you yearned, you began to lose hope, but now to continue to string you along comes a glimmer of hope from our friends at the Federal Communications Commission. Many didn't realize it would take this long for the 3G version of the Motorola XOOM to be eligible for its factory upgrade to blazing LTE. Whatever the mysterious hold-up was, it may disappearing as the FCC just approved the LTE upgraded version.

Lenovo Confirms Two New Tablets This Summer

Lenovo, the Chinese company now responsible for ThinkPad laptops, as well as several China-exclusive Android devices has plans to bring Honeycomb tablets to the world this summer. The first will be the Lenovo IdeaPad, which we've seen spring up on websites recently, listed as out of stock, and is due out in July. The more business-centric ThinkPad (not to be confused with Lenovo's laptops) will be available sometime in August. Lenovo is convinced that they've taken extra time to create tablets that will outshine the first batch 3.x devices, which were, in Lenovo's President's opinion "released before their time."

Gateway’s Run-of-the-Mill Honeycomb Tablet says Hi to the FCC

Well looks like Gateway is looking to get in on this "tablet" thing. Unfortunately their take on Honeycomb doesn't appear to offer much in the way of "unique." Hiding inside what is, quite literally, a shiny black box, is hardware almost identical to many of the tablets we've seen so far. Unless Gateway plans on making this device pretty cheap, it doesn't look to have much over current offerings. Unless you really like glossy plastic.

Notion Ink Adam Tablet gets a Honeycomb port

Man, when we reported earlier this week that Notion Ink was back with more Adam news, we didn't know they'd be back with a vengeance. But that seems to be the case as we've got two more bits of news about the home grown Android Tablet. The first bit of news is that a stalwart Android fan named MrGuy, has managed to port Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) onto his Adam. He's managed to boot up the system, install all his apps, and troubleshoot OpenGL issues which prompted Force Close. Pretty cool.

HTC Flyer preorders start Monday at Best Buy

HTC Flyer fans, you're wait is nearly over. As we reported here, Best Buy is now making it official with preorder details and pricing. Beginning on Monday, April 25, 2011, you will be able to pre-order the WiFi version of the Android Tablet for $499 through the Best Buy website. One thing though, the Flyer will not come with Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), but has Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) preloaded instead, with HTC Sense. Google hasn't made Honeycomb available just yet to HTC. And it may not, since we reported last month that Google is requiring separate license for the Honeycomb OS and is blocking updates from all Android 2.x tablets.
