Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Review

Say hello to the newest member of the Samsung Galaxy Tab family, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. It's here to replace its little brother the original Galaxy Tab with a few upgrades and improvements, not to mention a dual-core processor and Android 3.2 Honeycomb. Today we have the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus on the AC review bench and will be giving its features and apps a quick look, not to mention the usual benchmarks and tons of beautiful pictures. All that and more is below so don't go anywhere just yet.

T-Mobile offers a 4G version of the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus

Hot on the heels of the 7-inch Springboard, T-Mobile is adding yet another tiny tablet to its lineup of connected devices. The new Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will be available with T-Mobile "4g" bands, starting on November 16th, the same day as the Springboard. Prices start at $249.99 for a subsidized tablet on a two-year data contract, minus a $50 mail-in rebate. Contract-free pricing has not been announced yet.

T-Mobile Springboard Review

You've got a lot of choice when looking for a new Android tablet, but the T-Mobile Springboard is something novel. For just $179 (after a mail-in rebate and on contract, natch) you get a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet with a 720p screen and a dual-core processor. That makes the Springboard one of the smallest tablets around, and assuming you're down with T-Mobile's mobile data fees, one of the cheapest as well. The Springboard will be available starting on November 16th.

Team Xron’s CM7 dresses up your TouchPad in Honeycomb

Just like the rest of us, the CyanogenMod team doesn't have access to the Honeycomb source code, so for now the best they can do for custom ROMS and the HP TouchPad is Gingerbread. But themers are a crafty bunch, and since CyanogenMod is open sourced, a group calling themselves Team Xron has released a skinned version to at least make you feel like you're using a tablet OS. Users won't have access to Honeycomb apps, but the various customizations do make Gingerbread look pretty slick.

ASUS Transformer update rolling out now, Netflix included

All of you lucky ASUS Eee Pad Transformer owners should be happy to know an OTA update is hitting devices today. No, this is not Ice Cream Sandwich sadly but there are a few changes and improvements and so far we are hearing good things. The Transformer was updated to Android 3.2.1 Honeycomb late September, the latest version of Honeycomb and today that hasn't changed but we do have build version 8.6.5.18 in a small incremental update.

Android distribution numbers hold steady, Honeycomb still under 2%

When last we saw the distribution of the various Android versions, Gingerbread had nearly cracked 40% of the worldwide Android platform. This month it's passed it, taking 43.9% and inching closer to the still-dominant Froyo. Android 2.2 is still running on just over half of all Android devices, nearly eleven months after Gingerbread's release. Android's tablet OS Honeycomb barely increased to 1.9%, up just two tenths of a percent in a month.

XOOM 2 and XOOM 2 Media Edition tablets confirmed

Motorola's much-rumored new tablets have been made official, in the UK at least, with the 10.1-inch Motorola XOOM 2 and 8.2-inch Motorola XOOM 2 Media Edition both being confirmed today. Each packing a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, splash-resilience and a pair of cameras - 1.3-megapixels upfront, 5-megapixels on the back - the only real disappointment is that they run Android 3.2 Honeycomb rather than 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Inside, each packs 1GB of RAM along with 16GB of storage. There are various preloaded business apps on the bigger tablet, while the Media Edition gets Motorola's music/video streaming app preloaded. The Media Edition also boasts 178-degree viewing angles. The XOOM 2 is 253.9 mm x 173.6 mm x 8.8 mm and 599g, 100g less than its first-gen predecessor, while the XOOM 2 Media Edition is 139 mm x 216 mm x 8.99 mm and 386g. Both have Gorilla Glass. No word on pricing, but they'll each arrive in the UK midway through November. [youtube x16LUdsMPqw] [gallery] [via SlashGear]
