$699.99 on contract starting price from AT&T. If that doesn't deter you, the folks at SlashGear have a hands-on and unboxing video for your viewing pleasure.
Microsoft announced they've partnered with tons of media and entertainment leaders all across the world to bring a better experience to TV's and Xbox Live. After reading through all of the announcements and providers they have come to terms with I quickly found myself wondering how this will effect Google TV -- with and without Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich. If set-tops like the Revue weren't already facing an uphill fight, it just got even steeper.
Little Fluffy Toys. It claims that Honeycomb users install a much higher number of paid applications than any other section of Android users.
latest software breakdown for Android today (what, you didn't think there was only one announcement going on, did you?) and the numbers are promising. 38.7% of devices running Android are using version 2.3, "Gingerbread", the latest smartphone version officially supported by Google. For what's probably the first time this year, less than half of the Android userbase is running on Froyo.
Photoshop Mobile is a joke. It's not really an image editor as much as it's a tweaker, an app that's just about worth its free price tag and doesn't really live up to the Photoshop name. Now that tablets with the screen real estate and horsepower to take advantage of more traditional photo editing exist, Adobe wants to take advantage of them with Photoshop Touch for Honeycomb.
Galaxy Tab 7.7. Packing a 7-inch LCD IPS display running at 1024 x 600 resolution (rather than the Tab 7.7's Super AMOLED HD 1280 x 800 panel), the Tab 7.0 Plus also offers triband HSPA+, WiFi a/b/g/n (2.4/5GHz) and twin cameras. On the back there's a 3-megapixel camera with autofocus and an LED flash, while a 2-megapixel camera is on the front for video calling. Inside there's Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi Direct and WiFi Channel bonding support, USB 2.0 and USB Host, and a microSD card slot to augment the 16GB or 32GB of onboard storage. It's 193.65 x 122.37 x 9.96 mm and weighs 345g. Power is courtesy of an unspecified 1.2GHz dual-core processor, paired with 1GB of RAM, and there are the usual proximity, accelerometer, digital compass, gyro and ambient light sensors. On top of Honeycomb, Samsung's TouchWiz interface delivers its media, social, ereading and other hubs, together with some custom widgets and software like Kies Air. No word, at this stage, on exactly how much the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will cost. The company says it will land in Indonesia and Austria first, at the end of October, before seeing a progressive roll-out globally including Southeast and Southwest Asia, US, Europe, CIS, Latin America, Middle East, Africa, Japan and China.

7-inch Honeycomb tablet for the U.S. carrier, and new shots show the as-yet-unnamed tablet in the wild. No official info is forthcoming, but anonymous tipsters put the release date as sometime after CTIA in October.
haven't seen many for Android Honeycomb tablets. Today ASUS has unveiled the ASUS TOUGH ETBW11AA Tablet. The ASUS TOUGH is both water, and dust resistant, and comes with 4G WiMAX as well an impressive 1280x800 resolution all on that 7" frame.
Google TV in the recent past including a large update back in March. Yesterday @GoogleTV tweeted some exciting news for today, and for the future.
