Intel unveils two Android tablets targeted at students

There are tablets that have been designed to cater to specific audiences or use cases, and the education sector is no exception.

Chameleon launcher gives early access to Kickstarter donors

There's a ton of launchers available at the moment, but depressingly few are for Android tablets (with Go Launcher HD being the best among them). Chameleon is a new tablet launcher that uses an impressive methodology: its layout changes depending upon the time of day, connection, or even GPS location, catering itself to which apps you use in which situations. Like seemingly everybody these days, the creators have started a Kickstarter campaign to get Chameleon finished and into the Google Play Store.

Ematic launches 10-inch ICS tablet for $219

There are so many value-priced Android tablets out there that we tend to gloss over them unless there's something notable to report. In the case of the Ematic eGlide XL Pro 2, there's two: the price and the features. The former is just $219, just a little more than the "reader tablets" already available and considerably less than the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (which is a deal in itself). The latter is that it's a 10-inch tablet running Android 4.0 out of the box, something we're always glad to see.
