We've just received some tips regarding two upcoming Android tablets codenamed "Espresso" with a 10-inch model coming in June and the 7-inch Espresso variation to follow.

Tablet shipments could hit 383.3 million by 2017

Many of us were skeptical at first, but there's no doubt tablets have revolutionized the way we run our daily lives - that is, if you have one. It's estimated the tablet market will group from 72.7 million units to 383.3 by 2017. But what does this mean for the average consumer? That tablets are right on there way to hitting the "sweet-spot" price point that we've been waiting for.

DROID XYBOARD tablets arriving at Verizon, Launch date unknown

Just like the popular Galaxy Nexus we are now hearing the Motorola DROID XYBOARD tablets are also starting to arrive in stores and on the shelves at Verizon Wireless -- only on shelves in the back room of course. Neither of these devices have an official launch date and are chillin in what I'd like to call "Verizon Limbo" because you know as much as we do at this point. Same probably goes for all the retail employees.

Veyl ePillow is the perfect gift this Holiday season for tablet users

This awesome tablet accessory and stand is called the ePillow by Veyl Products and at first glance you might be thinking it's pretty wild.

The ePillow comes in tons of different colors and we have all the details and a short video below.

OnLive now available for Android and iOS tablets and smartphones

The way OnLive actually works is it streams gaming content straight from their cloud to your PC - and now that their application is compatible with Android and iOS they’re about to completely change gaming expectations. Whenever we think about playing a video game on our smartphone or tablet, there are certain expectations and limitations we are aware of. For instance, installation of the typical Android game takes around 10 minutes or so over a 3G network connection. Though many games out there push our tablet’s to their limits, most still can’t even compare to many console titles currently out. With OnLive, you can stream any of their popular games straight to your device with no need to download software or a powerful graphics engine. It works just like streaming a YouTube video or a song from Spotify.

AMD invests in BlueStacks to bring Android apps to Windows tablets

Android and Windows users had something to cheer about last week when start-up BlueStacks released the first version of their Android emulation software, which makes running and syncing Android apps on Windows easy. Now hardware giant AMD and virtualization software maker Citrix are investing 5.6 million dollars into the small company, hoping to spur development and expand x86 hardware's capabilities to include the wide range of Android apps. BlueStacks says that they'll use the cash to quickly bring feature-complete versions of its Player software to desktop computers. The potential for BlueStacks is promising to say the least. Windows doesn't have a lot of touch-optimized software at the moment, and with the tablet-friendly Windows 8 on the horizon, that's a definite handicap. Opening up Windows and other desktop operating systems to hundreds of thousands of Android apps can only help, and considering that x86 tablets tend to be 2-3 times the price of current Android slates, it wouldn't pose a threat to Honeycomb or upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich tablets. Not only does BlueStacks run Android software on Windows, it can also sync apps with users' phones, though this early in the development cycle the selection and support is rudimentary at best. The Pro version, which will run paid Android apps, is expected before the end of the year. [youtube Nus9-Tu_J9k] AMD could use whatever help it can find at this point. The company has been trailing behind Intel in the processor market for years, and while its Fusion low-power netbook chips have been well-received, they're still not making a significant dent in the desktop market. Both AMD and Intel are having trouble finding traction in the tablet market, with ARM processors being the internals of choice at the moment. Citrix, a professional virtualization company that already supports the iPad and Android tablets, is also investing in BlueStacks. [via SlashGear]
