The Kindle for Android announcement precedes the Google conference beginning May 19. Clint Boulton at eWeek reports that most of the buzz leading up to the event centers on Android. One thing that seems certain to launch at Google I/O is Android 2.2 Android 2.2 will give Kindle for Android a speed increase from previous operating systems. Google officials are also expected to talk about Android tablets. Verizon has confirmed it is working with Google on an Android tablet pc.
Tablets are tablets, but that does not mean we would like to see an ancient Operating System running on them. In fact, we’d really appreciate it if they all caught up with the times. That would be just about great. So that’s why we’re showing you the Dawa D7, a tablet that will probably never make it to the States, but we’ve got to give them props for dropping Windows CE, and going with a little Android instead.

Tablet PCs aren’t anything new, they have been around for a few years now even if they were quite unpopular. But, with the launch of the iPad, the buzz is definitely strong these days.

Video footage of the Dell android tablet has hit the net.
Tinhte.com has gotten hold of rare footage of this rumoured tablet and it looks like a pretty nifty gadget. Being larger than a phone yet a bit smaller then other tablets coming out which are offering 7-inch screens, it probably won’t appeal to everyone.
Offering a 800 x 480 resolution screen, it will run Android 2.0 and offer Bluetooth, 3G, a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, a microSD card slot and Wi-Fi.
Without further ado, here is a sneak peak of this android tablet:
Talk of tablet computers has been running high since Apple’s iPad launch which sold more than 1 million units in less than a month.
Since then, there has been a lot of news around tablets based on the Android operating system.
Signs of Android tablets coming out are everywhere, even if some are still only rumors, some of them have concrete proof. The New York Times said April 12 that Google is building a tablet based on Android.
Google declined this, but several things pointed that Google might in fact be interest in tablet computers. Not long ago, Google acquired Agnilux, which people say will provide Google software to adapt Android or Chrome Operating System to run on tablets or set-top boxes.
Google has also acquired Bump Technologies. Bump makes BumpTop, a user interface software that enables 3D multitouch desktop on Windows and Mac computers.
This sent a clear message to everyone that the Google Android tablet rumors are for real and that we can probably be expecting it sooner then we think as this market and demand grows.
The company who originally released their device as the WePad, has officially announced a name change to the WeTab. Why the name change to WeTab? Was it too similar to the iPad? Or perhaps a pad was not the ultimate desired keyword a “tab” would be more fitting to it’s intended use.
WeTab’s press release states “To clearly differentiate our products within the international market for tablet computers”
I guess they were getting interest from other markets around the world, like drug stores and geriatric care centers.
