iBall Slide Android Tablet has Ports Galore and a $300 pricetag

If there's one sort of device that we've over this past year come to find we're in no shortage of, it's Android "tablets". I put quotation marks around that word because as Android evolves and groups like Samsung bring out devices that bridge the gap, the word "tablet" will be used less and less by publishers while "Android device" used in a general sense will become much more likely a term for news releases. What we've got here, before that wave covers us all, is an Android device which has a 7-inch display, runs Android 2.3.x Gingerbread, and has about as many ports as you could ask for along the side.

HP TouchPad CyanogenMod 7 Build Initiated

If there's one name synonymous with Android hacking in this crazy, crazy mobile world of ours, it's Cyanogen - and today the worlds most notorious fire-sale-ridden tablet, the HP TouchPad, appears to be booting the best. But wait a second, doesn't the HP TouchPad run webOS? Why, yes it does, but as the $99 sale of said tablet made the entirety of its stock go down to zero after HP announced they were canning their webOS hardware department, Android was a certain next step - and these days, one step after Android equals Cyanogen.
