Motorola XOOM [Silver Euro Edition] [Hands On and Demo]

We're at Mobile World Congress 2011 at the Motorola presentation and we've been given a very basic rundown of some of the features you'll see with the out-of-box build of Motorola XOOM's user interface. This tablet is of course the one Google worked most closely with as far as Android 3.0 Honeycomb goes, so what you see will for the most part be the most pure version of everything Honeycomb has to offer. NOTE: the tablet this presenter is showing us has clearly been on display for a couple of days, as the screens are filled with videos, widgets, and a ton of instances of the same Honeycomb clock. Very messy!

Advent Vega Android Tablet Gets its Flash Player Back

Waaay back in December of 2010, the folks at Advent had a rather disturbing set of words to share, all of them adding up to the fact that they'd be pulling Flash Player 10.1 from their Vega tablets until further notice. Why? Because according to Advent, their tablets did “not exhibit the optimal performance that the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor is capable of running with certain Flash website content.” They went on to mention, back in December, that Flash Player would be restored by early 2011. That time is right the heck now, today!
