Now that Adobe has moved on from trying to bring its services to Apple’s iPhone/iPod Touch, they are focusing most of their efforts towards Android. A public demo (once again) of Flash 10.1 is expected to make an appearance at this year’s I/O with the program finally being released in June. We’ll see how this turns out in June.
A Chinese manufacturer by the name of Aigo has two Android MID’s in the making. The new tablets will come in a 5 and 7 inch version. Both will be running Android 1.6, there is no word on when or if these devices will be upgraded to Android 2.1. Price is rumored to be around 1500 Yuan which is roughly $220 and will be released in May.
Some of you may have heard of this name before. HTC had a vote recently which allowed users to pick the name of their next device. Wildfire was the winner with the most votes. Today the FCC had some hands on time with a new Android device that has a full QWERTY slide out keyboard.
Let’s start off with the old. Keeping the trend started by the G1, the myTouch Slide will be available in a variety of colors. The standard black and white but this time around merlot has been replaced in favor of red. If you’re a fan of the optical trackpad, it will make an appearance on the device along with a few capacitive buttons and a new “G” button.
This will be the first MID in a series of products from 1 Cross. It's Android based and is a mix between an e-reader and a tablet. 1 Cross will name this hybrid the ShuBook which is Chinese for book. When closed it looks like a traditional book, open it up and you will reveal dual screens. One e-reader and a smaller screen with a built in qwerty keyboard.
