Sprint to offer Motorola XOOM WiFi for $600 starting May 8

Posted on 29 April 2011 by Android

Sprint has announced that it will be the second major US wireless carrier to offer the Motorola XOOM Android tablet. But while Verizon is selling a 3G model with the promise of a free upgrade to the network’s 4G LTE network in the coming months, Sprint will be offering the WiFi version of the tablet. If you want to use it on Sprint’s 3G or 4G networks, you’ll need to get a WiFi hotspot device. Continue Reading

Sony Tablet: Smart Move, Good Timing

Posted on 28 April 2011 by Android

Sony’s introduction of its two forthcoming S1 and S2 Android tablets didn’t really come as a surprise. Rumors have floated before about Sony taking this step; to me, it was a matter of when, not if. I’ve seen Sony get flack, including from my colleague Jared Newman, for announcing Sony Tablet now, months ahead of when the tablets will ship and with no price and few details beyond some basic specs. However, this could be a shrewd move on Sony’s part—but only if the company can truly deliver the goods. Continue Reading

Once considered mainly a recreational/entertainment tool, tablets are quickly making their way into the business world as more and more industries are finding ways to put the devices to use. Whether it’s a car salesman looking to accelerate the sales process before a buyer gets cold feet, or a contractor accessing material costs right from the job site, tablets are starting to make an impact.

The Apple iPad has led the way in terms of sales, but competitors aren’t standing idly by. Recently, Robert Scoble reviewed the new Motorola Xoom, scheduled for release tomorrow, and compared it side-by-side to the iPad.

A self-described “iPad freak”, Scoble was surprised to find several features of the Xoom superior to the iPad. “Multi-tasking on the Motorola is much, much better than the iPad,” explains Scoble. “The other thing I’ve noticed is the common Google apps are much better on the Xoom. Gmail is the full version and Google Maps has turn-by-turn navigation, which it doesn’t have on the iOS devices — not yet, at least.” Calendaring and contacts through Google also function better on the Xoom, and the screen resolution is superior, according to Scoble.

It’s not all bad news for the iPad, however, as Apple still has a big advantage in one area. “Apple is still winning on apps,” says Scoble, “and that’s going to be a huge problem this year for the Android devices.” Additionally, Apple will undoubtedly be addressing concerns and adding features with the much anticipated release of the iPad 2, rumored to be right around the corner.

Acer Iconia Tab A500 Video Review: 10.1″ Android tablet at a nice price

Posted on 27 April 2011 by Android

We really like the Motorola Xoom 10.1″ Android tablet, but the price isn’t easy to swallow. Acer, whose game in the notebook world is making a fairly solid product for less than all the major manufacturers, is doing it now with tablets. In terms of specs, the Acer A500 matches the Motorola Xoom WiFi-only model, but it costs $150 less. There are two important spec differences to keep in mind as you think about those 150 clams: the Acer has 16 gigs of storage vs. the Xoom’s 32 gigs, and the Xoom has dual band WiFi 802.11n while the Acer has single band WiFi 802.11n on 2.4GHz only (if you have no idea what I’m talking about, you probably don’t care if it has dual band n).
