Android Community’s Gigantic XOOM Tablet Giveaway is Over! Thank You everyone!

Oh my goodness we are finished. Before anything else is said, let me thank NVIDIA, providers of the tablets for this contest for both AC and SG. Then - we've finally found five non-robot of-age human citizens of the USA to give five XOOM tablets to. You would not believe how hard it was to fill those requirements. Hopefully some international contests in the future, but for now, USA! We've got all five winners chosen, contacted, connected, and their XOOM units are sent. Two were given at our sister site SlashGear, three were given here at Android Community, all were given to folks who we hope will take the kind time to be kind and review their units once they're settled with them. This is only the beginning of the beginning!

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 vs Motorola XOOM vs LG G-Slate

Which one of these things is not like the other - which one of them does not belong? Any lay-person looking at the three tablets in this odd stack up might say the Galaxy Tab 10.1 on account of its white color and custom-etched backing, but look at that little weirdo. The LG G-Slate is one of the latest dual-core tablets to be released in the USA and it's ever-so-slightly smaller than the other two here in this stack-up. It's also got a 3D camera. That's pretty weird. And what about that Motorola XOOM? It's what, several months old. Shouldn't it be extinct by now? Hardly. Behold this week's ultimate battle to the death, Google I/O 2011 style.

Acer Iconia Tab A500 deal at Best Buy

Best Buy is featuring the Acer Iconia Tab A500 in their weekly sales circular and at a pretty good price, too. The Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet is on sale for just under $450, cheaper than Motorola's XOOM, which is selling for around $600, WiFi only. It's also available now at that price, while the slightly cheaper EeePad Transformer (at $400) won't be out for another few weeks. And with our earlier report that users can root the Iconia (with a step by step guide included), the time is ripe to ask the question ... why wait?

HBO to GO now in the Android Market

A few weeks back, we reported that HBO to GO would be coming to the Android Market. The we didn't know when it would be coming to Android, although it was strongly hinted at May 2nd in their commercials. Well, HBO has released it early and the app is now live. Users who subscribe to the PayTV service can download it to most Android devices.
