Or I suppose that's what they'll be hoping to do with what's likely to be called "Google Propeller."

Apple Retail Changes Create Community Space

Before I begin explaining what's going on here, lemme say that Apple is without a doubt Google's biggest competitor for the mobile OS world as we know it. Thusly it's important that we know what's going on at Apple stores specifically because the space that Apple creates for their whole product set is something that Android just does not have at this juncture. What's going on at the Apple store now is a few changes as far as how they work with and provide a nice environment for consumers who walk onto the floor.

The Amazon Tablet is a rumor that refuses to die

DigiTimes is reporting that Taiwan based Quanta Computer has received a monthly order from Amazon for up to 800,000 tablet PCs at peak production. The tablets are expected to ship in the second half of 2011, making an Amazon Tablet ready to hit the market just in time for the holidays. Quanta is no stranger to tablets, being an OEM partner for both RIM and Sony. So, is it a credible rumor? Well, the touch screens are expected to be made by E Ink Holdings, which provides the screens on the Kindle. They use an electrophoretic display supported by Fringe Field Switching technology, which is just a fancy way of saying they've got great color gamut and bright, bold colors, according to Wiki.

Verizon waives $35 Tablet activation fee

Verizon has announced that they waiving their $35 Tablet activation fee for month to month data plans related to the Motorola Xoom and Samsung Galaxy Tab tablets. The fee waiver is retroactive to March 1. Users who find they have been charged the fee, should also see a similar credit on the same bill effectively cancelling it out. The waiver is likely in response to the fact that the iPad 2 has no activation fee from Verizon, so why wouldn't Android get the same kind of love.

Motorola Xoom users having a hard time with Verizon account activation

It seems that Verizon may be stuck in the dark ages when it comes to new customers activating their Motorola Xoom tablets. CDSmith over at Reddit shares his frustration at buying a new Xoom tablet and when trying to activate a new Verizon account in order to make payments and manage their accounts. The issue lies with not being able to activate a user account since Verizon sends the activation password either by SMS text message to a phone on the same account, or via snail mail. Being that the Xoom doesn't have a phone number, a user account can't be activated directly. And if new users don't have a Verizon phone on the same account, their only option is through snail mail, which is problematic since the temporary passwords are reportedly expiring before the users can receive the notification.
