Android Honeycomb 3.1 Review and XOOM Benchmarks

We've got our first official hands-on here with the newest mobile operating system to come out of Google's labs, Android 3.1 Honeycomb. This is a relatively sparse update with only a few little bits for you to be bouncing around with, the most visible of which are involved in widgets, tasks, and USB connections. We've also got a special selection of benchmarks added up here for you to compare to our original tests when the Motorola XOOM (aka the first device to get this update) first came to our doorstep.

Barnes & Noble May 24 Event Invite: NOOKcolor 3G with Honeycomb?

Might as well toss out a few guesses here, educated as they are - a new device is about to be released, some sort of tablet device, and it'll be coming out May 24th. That's what we learned was the situation back on the 5th of May via a sales call with Barnes & Noble themselves. What we've just received now is an invite to an event that takes place that very day at a Barnes & Noble location of utmost secrecy!

Nexus T Toshiba Tablet Next Official Google Release?

Let's talk about this situation and see if we can't piece together a few factoids. First, waaay back at the beginning of this year, a mystery tablet started showing up - one made by Toshiba, having a 10.1-inch screen, and sporting what would become Android 3.0 Honeycomb (testers floating around had Froyo, of course.) Have a look at our big reveal post and continue on - does that look like a tablet that Google would officially endorse as the next step in their flagship series? That very much appears to be what may be happening now!

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Review in a Nutshell

True to form, our good pal Chris Davies has the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer up and running as fast as a bunny, reviewing the heck out of it for you and me so that we might know if it's really worth the $400 we'll be paying for it! This device also has the code TF101 attached to it for further IDing and is, in short, a 10.1-inch Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet with a rather fashionable keyboard dock attachment that essentially allows you to work with the device as a tablet or a laptop. Will it power past the competition?

Acer Iconia Tab A500 deal at Best Buy

Best Buy is featuring the Acer Iconia Tab A500 in their weekly sales circular and at a pretty good price, too. The Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet is on sale for just under $450, cheaper than Motorola's XOOM, which is selling for around $600, WiFi only. It's also available now at that price, while the slightly cheaper EeePad Transformer (at $400) won't be out for another few weeks. And with our earlier report that users can root the Iconia (with a step by step guide included), the time is ripe to ask the question ... why wait?

ACER Iconia Tab A500 Rooted [Plus a Step by Step Guide!]

It seems as though we've come to a point in this lovely Android timeline where it's not if a device is going to get rooted, it's not even when, it's WHO will gain root. I suppose that's a little bit of when in there too, but mostly who. In this case it's monki-magic and his modified Gingerbreak apk (the original being made by Chainfire) - plus there's a few more players, but we'll get to that soon. What we're rooting here is the ACER A500 Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet and we've got a whole set of directions to offer up to you right here and now!
