An iPad Mini could crash the Nexus 7 party

We've been hearing lots of reports that the folks from Cupertino are planning an iPad Mini. From Bloomberg and the New York Times, to our sister site SlashGear. Apparently Apple will be releasing a cheaper, smaller 7-inch iPad Mini later this year to better compete with Android. Could an iPad Mini crash the Nexus 7 party that's been going on all month? Doubtful -- but lets talk about it anyways.

Android Community Weekly: March 10, 2012

We've had another week of excellent tech news, now here's your wrap-up! There were a few rumors circulating this week that ASUS would be the manufacturer of the first Nexus tablet. We had even thought it could be called the "Google Play", but it turned out that Google Play was the rebranded name of the Android Market. After the Google Play Store was rolled out to devices everywhere, it was breaking the Market for many Motorola devices. Fortunately, they've already pushed an update to v3.4.7 and it managed to fix the problem. And if you all have recently wondered where your Android Market went, it was replaced entirely, so you'll need to find it in your app drawer under Google Play Store.

The only iPad feature I’m jealous of is contract-free mobile data

Apple unveiled its latest iPad in San Francisco yesterday, and as usual, the tech world and more established media swooned at the shiny new piece of engineered obsolescence. As a die-hard Android fan, I wasn't moved - sure, the screen is nice (even if it's still the wrong ratio) and the processor is impressive, but my distaste for Apple as a manufacturer, developer and corporation is more than enough to overcome any fleeting feeling of hardware lust. But there's one feature that remains exclusive to the iPad that I want, badly, and it isn't coming to Android any time soon: wireless data without a contract.

Nvidia takes exception to Apple’s iPad CPU and GPU claims

By now you've probably heard about "the new iPad", even if you've been studiously avoiding it - more testament to the awesome power of the Apple media machine. One of the more surprising claims to come out of San Francisco was that the iPad's A6 A5X processor and new GPU could perform four times as well as Nvidia's Tegra 3 quad-core processor, illustrated with a highly technical (and typically Apple) glowing blue line. An Nvidia spokesman took exception to this, pointing out that Apple's claims are far from scientific.

Samsung strikes back – compares Galaxy Note 10.1 vs new iPad

The all new iPad was just announced only a few short hours ago, and while CEO Tim Cook was on stage he was quick to take a few stabs at Android and Samsung regarding tablets and the user experience. Now after the final specs have been confirmed Samsung is already fighting back. They have released their own little "content creation" and comparison chart showing just how much better they think their Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet is over the Apple iPad 3rd Gen.

Your thoughts on the “all new iPad” or iPad 2S…

Big news today folks, Peyton Manning is no longer an Indianapolis Colt! It is a sad day for the NFL and Colts fans. In other news Apple just announced the iPad 3, iPad HD, or as they are calling it the "all new iPad". Personally I'd call it the iPad 2S HD but that isn't up to me. We just watched all the news unfold on our sister site SlashGear over the past hour and we're wondering what all our Android readers think of the new device.

What the iPad 3 means for Android tablets

Tomorrow's the day, tech newshounds: The Hyperbole Hyper Bowl, the Smug Showdown, the Reality Distortion Field Reboot. I speak, of course, about Apple's iPad 3 announcement. While I wouldn't expect our regular readers to take much notice of the pomp and circumstance, it's an undeniable fact that Apple's announcements make waves in the mobile world, and nowhere is that more true than in the tablet market. While Android kicks the glossy finish off of the iPhone in every market, the iPad still dominates the tablet industry.

Android tablets gain ground with 10.5 million sales in Q4 2011

Apple sells a lot of iPads - their recent financial disclosing leave no doubt about it. But looming behind the Cupertino giant is the specter of Android, ready to take over the tablet world as it already has the smartphone one. While Apple shipped more than 15 million iPads worldwide in the last three months of 2011, Android tablet shipments rose to 10.5 million, giving the two platforms a 57.6% and 39.1% share of the tablet market, respectively. Compared the the same quarter in 2010, Apple's market share dropped my more than 10 points while Android's rose by almost exactly the same amount. The latest numbers are according to Strategy Analytics.

Quid pro quo: Motorola granted injunction against Apple in Germany

There are all sorts of appropriately snarky comments one could place here. But we'll stick to the facts, ma'am, just the facts: FOSS Patents reports that Motorola Mobility has been granted a preliminary sales injunction against Apple in Germany, based on one of its wireless communications patents. Unless Apple can get the ruling overturned or stayed, it may face a sales ban on the iPhone and iPad in that country.
