You could say December 7th ended with a bang - after a day crammed full of Gingerbread goodness, Andy Rubin came on stage at D: Dive Into Mobile to tease a next-gen Honeycomb tablet. Unfortunately, Google's VP of Engineering didn't give us a very in-depth look, so most of us were left hungry for more.

And more we have - in addition to the picture you're seeing above, Taiwanese forum member goldenstone provided us with the following specs:

  • 1280x800 display
  • 32 GB EMMC storage as well as a microSD card slot
  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 T20 dual-core CPU with 3D performance re-optimization
  • Gyroscope
  • 5 MP rear camera
  • 2 MP front-facing cam

Oh, and Motorola's got something hidden up its sleeve for those of you still bickering over which size is best - there will be both seven and ten-inch editions of the device. The choices don't end there, though: according to the aforementioned forum member, customers will be able to choose between UMTS, CDMA, and LTE (!) radios. A tablet for everyone.

    This is completely awesome news hopefully they will get everything right with the screen... but it looks like Moto will be the competition's biggest fear (just like they thought hahaha)

    For me the question is:
    Will Motorola close the bootloader too, f.e. like on Milestone ?
    This will render Custom-Roms useless, because such devices only boot a kernel rsa-signed by Motorola !

    And Motorola's update timelines are very bad, it takes ages to get an update, f.e. Milestone is still waiting for Froyo :(

    I don't dare to think of such things like Motoblur.

    All I hope is that Google will have some influence here and that it will be an open tablet with vanilla honeycomb !

    But after knowing Motorola I fear that this will not be the case, they only want your money for the device and leave you out in the dark when it comes to up2date software.
