Android Honeycomb


So you've rooted your Motorola XOOM and you're having an awesome time doing everything you've ever wanted to do on a giant screen. Then it hits you - a post saying that in order to grab yourself a [4G LTE upgrade from Verizon], you're gonna have to return that tablet back to stock. Oh noes! Your life would be ever so much more simple if you just had an easy-to-use file that'd essentially do it with a single click -- oh my goodness, that's what we've got right here.

Motorola XOOM will Receive Verizon 4G LTE Upgrade, Root or Not! [OFFICIAL]

Will my XOOM be able to be upgraded to 4G LTE if it's rooted? That's the question being asked by owners of the brand new Motorola Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet after a story flew around the net saying that the answer was no, no way! Our own Cory Gunther had reservations about the whole situation and what do you know? He was totally right to raise a few questions - today, according to Support Forums over at Motorola, rooting your device and even having any number of oddity on it won't void your ability to upgrade to LTE at all - with a couple stipulations, of course.

Which tablet should I choose to buy? Don’t even bother looking at specs – or price for that matter.

Before I begin here, allow me to address the cost factor - when begin thinking about purchasing a tablet, you've got to weigh the cost of the tablet against the benefits of owning it. This is the same thing you really ought to be doing, in my humble opinion, whenever you decide you're going to buy a bit of technology, or a car, or a house, or whatever other item you're going to purchase for the benefits of owning it. On the other hand, if you're thinking of purchasing a tablet so you can use it for entertainment alone, you've got an ever-so-slightly different set of circumstances you're going to deal with - BUT, as I'll maintain through the entirety of this text, comparing one tablet to the other based on specifications is, as Erica Sadun puts it, "missing the point." You must go forth and buy the tablet you know, in your heart, if you will, will be the one you'll love the best.

Motorola XOOM to Lauch with Flash in Early April [EURO]

So you fancy yourself one of those silver-backed Motorola XOOM tablets from Europe, do you? Perhaps you've been antsy to see what the release date on the UK version was, yes? Perhaps you'd like a bunch of information about the Motorola XOOM over on your side of the pond all in one handy-dandy place? Perhaps somewhere like a single blog post? We've got one of those right here!

Motorola XOOM Wifi Price Inflation

One of the most important things you can do when it comes to listing a product on the internet is to make sure the numbers are correct. One of the most important place in a listing of a product for the numbers to be correct is in the price of the product. If the price of a product, especially one so well-covered as the XOOM, costs one price one day, then another price the next, people are going to notice. That sort of thing went down today at PC World where yesterday the price of the Motorola XOOM Wifi version cost £449.99 yesterday, and £499.99 today. Not the best thing to be revealed on the day Apple announces their new iPad to be costing the same $499 USD as it did when it didn't have a 2 listed after it.

Motorola XOOM vs iPad 2

Welcome to the main event. This is the war everyone's been waiting for, ever since the idea of an Android tablet first came into fruition. Now we've got a Honeycomb optimized tablet, the first of its kind, and the second generation of Apple's main gun, the iPad, the tablet that got this wild ball rolling. Will iPad 2's lower price (still 499) be enough to knock the Tegra 2-toting XOOM out of the park? Or will it be the XOOM's open-source access and heavy-metal attitude that punches the iPad 2's white-or-black front-having face into the dirt? Let's have a lovely look!

Android Honeycomb Sculpture Arrives at Google Building 44

Google's mobile blog has posted their official video for the unveiling of the newest sculpture to grace the lawn at Google's Building 44, this one being the most complicated of the whole crew. As you may already be aware, each time a new version of Android comes out, it's given the name of a tasty treat. The name for Android 2.3 was Gingerbread, thusly a gigantic Gingerbread man is highly visible behind the Honeycomb sculpture you'll soon see being erected in the video below. Behold the loveliness of the Android tablet OS in gigantic plastic form.

Angry Birds Nearly Ready for Honeycomb on XOOM

Whilst poking around in all the apps we've ever written on our brand new Motorola XOOM tablet running Android 3.0 Honeycomb, we've discovered a couple of tiny glitches in an otherwise flawless looking Angry Birds suite. As the graphics are vectorized, everything in all of the Angry Birds games scales up perfectly nicely. One of the items that does not currently work in Angry Birds in Honeycomb on the XOOM tablet is the ads - they don't show up. We're not complaining!

NVIDIA Tegra Optimized Mini Game Guide

We've got a good friend in high places (NVIDIA) who's handed us a guide on what makes a game worthy (essentially) of carrying the NVIDIA Tegra seal of approval. Now these games are made by designers and engineers who have extraordinary talent, so NVIDIA certainly doesn't pretend to be the authority on how amazing a game can be, but the crews who work on these games have been glad to work with NIVIDIA to optimize everything from graphics to quick movements in the Tegra environment. Would you like some specific examples of how a few amazing new games work better than they ever have before now that they've got an optimized high-five from NVIDIA?
