Polish Mall Booth Revives 1.2 GHz Galaxy Tab 10.1 Rumor

Someone out there was obviously pretty convinced that Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 was supposed to have a 1.2 GHz processor. Last week we reported that Vodafone was listing the new tablet with a beefed up processor without a name, rather than the 1 GHz Tegra 2 that Samsung's website, and common knowledge would tell you it had. That turned out to be false, but the rumor has sprung back to life with a sighting of this sign on a Samsung booth in a mall in Poland.

Gateway’s Run-of-the-Mill Honeycomb Tablet says Hi to the FCC

Well looks like Gateway is looking to get in on this "tablet" thing. Unfortunately their take on Honeycomb doesn't appear to offer much in the way of "unique." Hiding inside what is, quite literally, a shiny black box, is hardware almost identical to many of the tablets we've seen so far. Unless Gateway plans on making this device pretty cheap, it doesn't look to have much over current offerings. Unless you really like glossy plastic.

Vodafone Tab 10.1 Processor Speed a Mistake

Darn. Looks like it was just a mis-post on Vodafone's UK website that their switch to the new, thinner model of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 would include a processor bump to 1.2 GHZ. Turns out that like the rest of the world, the UK will get their Tab 10.1's powered by a Tegra 2. Their website had listed a 1.2 GHz processor, leading some to believe it may run on Samsung's own Exynos chip, but the site has since been corrected.

Motorola XT882 headed to China as Dual-Core, Dual-Sim, Dual-Mode Superphone

Lately we have seen a few devices that were headed to China and they weren't what I'd call up to par in the specs department, but this looks to bring that to a new level. Folks in China should be ready to rejoice with this new phone from Motorola. It is strikingly similar to the Motorola Atrix in terms of design and a few specs but the real treat is that dual-sim and dual-mode under the hood.

Two New Games for Tegra: Galaxy of Fire 2 and Hardwood Backgammon

If you've been paying attention to the app previews and reviews we've been doing over the past few months, you've noticed that we've had a rather exciting run of games come to our desk released exclusively for Tegra 2 devices. NVIDIA's been working VERY closely with the top minds and most ambitious developers in gaming to move the greatest possible games to mobile via Android - all of them through the app called NVIDIA Tegra Zone. What's coming up next, you might be asking yourself? Why, Galaxy of Fire 2 and Hardwood Backgammon, of course!

Motorola Droid X2 Review

We have had a few days with a couple new Android devices lately, they were both sporting 4.3" qHD Displays and boy do they look good. Today we have a few more details and pictures as well as our review of the Motorola Droid X2. We have had our paws on it all weekend and I must say I am impressed so far, from the nice and simple touches to the UI Overlay, all the way down to the hardware (even though its identical to the first Droid X). We have put Verizon's first dual-core beast through a test run and it is time to share our thoughts.

Android Community App of the Week: Bang Bang Racing THD

Behold NVIDIA's newest collaboration, this time with the developer team at Playbox for a rock and roll racing game by the name of Bang Bang Racing! This is certainly the most unique racing-type game to come to Android yet, with an overhead birds-eye view of your progress on the track and controls consisting of the tip of your index finger. While using the game on a smaller device such as the G2x didn't work out too much to our liking, the tablet experience can't be beat. Unique controls and fabulous graphics ahoy!
