Honeycomb

Archos 80 G9 tablet now available with 250 GB storage — only $369

If you have a need for copious amounts of storage on a mobile device the new Archos 80 G9 series Honeycomb tablet would probably be a great choice. They have just released the 250 GB version of this 8" slate and amazingly it's still priced much lower than competing 8-10" Honeycomb tablets with only 16GB of internal storage.

Dell confirms no ICS for Streak 7 while Streak 5 gets Gingerbread

If you are a user of the Dell Streak 5 tablet, you will like that a new update is available for you. Dell released the official update to Gingerbread for the Streak 5 tablet this week. The official Gingerbread ROM is available for the tablet right now and it is a 155MB update. Apparently you need to have stock recovery version 350 installed on the tablet.

Low prices boost Android’s tablet market share to 40%

The free market, in all its terrible beauty, is Apple's most friendly enemy. After 18 months of being effectively the only tablet game in town (as a function of sales, anyway) the Cupertino giant's deathgrip on the slate market is starting to crack. According to IDC, Android's share of sales in the fourth quarter of 2011 will reach 40.3 percent of all tablet sales. That's up considerably since the third quarter, which has been variously projected as 20-30%.

Firefox Android tablet UI comes out of beta

As a dedicated user of Firefox on the desktop, I keep a close eye on Mozilla's Android version of the browser. Unfortunately their efforts on the mobile platform have been somewhat underwhelming so far, with two primary complaints being sluggish performance and a head-scratching interface. The recent release of Firefox 9 on the desktop has been mirrored by the mobile version, and now the updated tablet interface has been pushed out. The Honeycomb-friendly UI will be familiar to anyone who's spent time in third-party Honeycomb app.

Acer Iconia Tab A200 pricing and picture gallery revealed

ACER is all set to launch their next Android tablet named the A200 and while we don't have a quad-core processor or anything revolutionary from their previous attempts this tablet should be quite impressive. We've seen various leaks and ACER officially announced this dual-core Tegra 2 slate in early December but no launch date or pricing was given. Today we have a full image gallery and some suggested prices courtesy of NotebookItalia.

Archos unveils the 70b Internet Tablet packing Honeycomb for a dirt cheap £180 [UPDATE]

Tablets are expensive. Americans know this all too well, as many of them are still saddled with mostly unnecessary carrier contracts - see the recent DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and 8.2. That's what makes devices like the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet so popular. But it could be worse, yankees: over the pond in the UK, most tablets cost at least as much in pounds. Throw in a nasty conversion rate and Value Added Tax, and the £400 Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus becomes a whopping $750 equivalent. Archos, ever ready to strike at the budget-conscious segment, is preparing its latest 7-inch tablet at a price well below the UK median. The Archos 70b Internet Tablet will sell for just £179.99, about which works out to about $340 after taxes. Considering that tablets are primarily media consumption devices (which is a polite way of saying "toys"), a lower price is always preferable. For that price, you get a WiFi Honeycomb 3.2 tablet with a 7-inch 1024 x 600 screen, a 1.2Ghz processor and access to the Android Market and Google's other proprietary apps. 512Mb of RAM means that it should perform much better than the older Archos 70, though that's still a little pokey for Honeycomb. Storage space isn't mentioned, so it will probably be available in multiple capacities. Archos' press release did not mention an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade, but industrious modders will probably have a version ready soon enough. The 70b Internet Tablet is not to be confused with the previous Archos 70b eReader. [timeline] There's no news on the tablet making its way stateside just yet. Archos has a history of delays in getting its low-priced hardware out of Europe, but it usually does get here eventually. At this price for the UK version, you can probably expect a $200-250 price. That's hard to beat as far as Honeycomb tablets go, and might be worth considering if you're a fan of Archos' rich media format support and generally minimal changes to Android. As an upgrade to the popular Archos 70 Froyo tablet, the 70b Internet Tablet looks promising. UPDATE: It looks like the Archos 70b is scheduled for a US release next month at $199.99. The company's US branch just sent out its own press release. Who called it?

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 Review

Earlier this year Motorola's first tablet the XOOM launched as the first Honeycomb tablet and had plenty of promise. Sadly the hefty size and bloated Verizon 3G data pricing didn't help its cause. We now have the next-gen Xoom happily named the DROID XYBOARD tablets to see what they learned from their first attempt at a tablet. The XYBOARD has been hanging out with our team and a few Galaxy Nexus smartphones this week and below you'll find our thoughts on this 8.2" Honeycomb device.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2″ hands-on

We just got our hands on one of the latest tablets from team Motorola and Verizon this afternoon, the Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2" 4G LTE tablet. Other than the bizarre name you'll quickly notice a few unique things about this slate out of the box. A perfectly sized 8.2" IPS display and some of that Moto Blur UI over Honeycomb to name a few. We have our hands-on video and a few photos below for your enjoyment.
