Platinum Air Hockey for Honeycomb Tablets

Platinum Apps has just lowered the price on their awesome Air Hockey game made just for Android Honeycomb tablets. What we have is Platinum Air Hockey bringing amazing graphics and life-like physics to Honeycomb. I've played a few air hockey games in the past -- but with stunning HD graphics on my 10" tablet this sure beats anything else I've tried so far. More details and pictures after the break.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 WiFi gets official US listing/price

Samsung US has officially priced the Galaxy Tab 8.9 WiFi tablet, with the 8.9-inch Honeycomb slate being available from $469 and said to be "coming soon." Both 16GB and 32GB versions of the tablet are listed, priced at $469 and $569 respectively. Specifications are just as we've seen before, which means Android 3.1 Honeycomb running on NVIDIA's dual-core Tegra 2 processor with Samsung's own TouchWiz modifications. There's a 2-megapixel camera on the front and a 3-megapixel camera on the back, but unlike the 3G versions only WiFi to get you online. That all matches up with Best Buy's listings from last week, with the retailer suggesting that the Galaxy Tab 8.9 would arrive sometime later this month. An LTE version is also expected for some regions, tipped to launch later in 2011, though exact availability is unconfirmed. [device id=1676] [Thanks Paul!]

Motorola’s 7-inch XOOM caught in wild

An image of what appears to be Motorola's 7-inch version of the XOOM has leaked, presumably the same compact tablet CEO Sanjay Jha promised was in the pipeline earlier this year. No specifications in the image sent to This is my next, but the slimline slate does appear to have the Motorola logo - or something like it - in the top corner, and be running Android Honeycomb's camera app. As for connectivity, while we're guessing that WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G/4G are all likely additions, the only thing visible at the moment are two ports on the lower edge. They, it's suggested, are microUSB and microHDMI. If authentic, gone are the chunky stylings of the original XOOM, to be replaced by an angled aesthetic more in keeping with the Photon 4G. No word on when, exactly, this new Motorola might hit the market, nor indeed what the chunky device in the upper right-hand corner might be.

Google Readying Pulse Competitor feed reader app

One of the most obvious and easily made excellent functions of a tablet computer is its ability to act as a news reader. What groups like News360 and Feedly and Pulse have discovered is that it's quite the lucrative and easily accessible market indeed. And you know what happens when there's a market that's available for access, right? Google comes in and smashes everyone else with their Thor hammer! Or I suppose that's what they'll be hoping to do with what's likely to be called "Google Propeller."

Logitech Revue gets another Honeycomb leak, Apps now showing in Android Market

Well folks, it looks like we are now seeing a second leak of Android Honeycomb for the Logitech Revue. From watching the video leaked along with it you can clearly see things are moving along quite nicely and it appears much closer to release than the last. If this doesn't make you want to run out and buy one for $99 I don't know what will -- except for maybe Ice Cream Sandwich.

NFL 2011 App for Honeycomb Tablets

Just in time for Football to officially get started yesterday the NFL has released their official NFL 2011 app for Android tablets. This requires Android 3.0 or higher and so far it is amazing. I'm way too excited about this because the NFL Mobile app from Verizon doesn't support tablets and everything else just doesn't compare. Watching highlight videos and checking news in amazing quality built specifically for the 10" display looks incredible. Well done NFL, well done!

HoneyBar Removes Status Bar from Android Tablets on command

It's always good to have options, and with Android, there's no mobile OS on earth with more of them - right? Turns out that's not always true, or so it is if you ask any number of developers on the Android circuit, just so long as they're looking for total and complete control they'll never completely be satisfied. Thus, there must be apps such as this: HoneyBar, an app which requires root but gives you the ability to get rid of your Android 3.x Honeycomb status bar whenever you like, with just a tap of a button.

HTC Flyer Receives Honeycomb Upgrade [Leak]

Several weeks ago we were holding the HTC Flyer for the first time, a brand new tablet running a unique version of HTC's Sense user interface on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, all in a mid-sized tablet form factor with a special "Scribe" stylus for on-screen writing. We got to look at this device as the HTC Flyer (a Wi-fi version of the tablet) and the HTC EVO View, a WiMAX-capable black instead of white plastic casing version. Now what we've got coming down the underground pipeline is a Honeycomb upgrade for the full tablet experience!
