XOOM2_Dyn_R_horiz_Home_EMARA


We've heard the rumors and seen the pictures, but Motorola just made the XOOM 2 official. Just like suspected, there are two different versions: a 10.1-inch model, geared towards enterprise and corporate users; and an 8.2-inch Media Edition, designed for movies and music playback. In terms of hardware spec, both tablets are little more than an incremental upgrade from the original XOOM:

  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor (probably OMAP)
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB built-in storage
  • 5MP rear camera, VGA front
  • Android 3.2

We love giving stuff away here at AP, and today we have ten cases from Incipio to hand out to ten lucky readers. Incipio offers five main types of case: Dermashot, feather, Silicrylic, NGP, and Edge (they also make a case called "Step" for the Droid X2). I've recently spent some hands-on time with the Dermashot, feather, and Silicrylic models, so before we get into the giveaway, we're going to take a closer look at those.

Looking for a name brand tablet that won't break the bank? Want to relive the late '80s? If you answered yes to both of those questions, brace yourself, because we've got some good news for you.

Update: It's worth noting that this is not the same Amiga from the good ol' days. It's actually another company named Amiga, Inc. which owns all of the old-school Amiga patents. It's confusing, but here's the Wikipedia excerpt that breaks it down:

The rights to the Amiga platform were successively sold to Escom and later Gateway 2000, but Escom almost immediately went bankrupt itself (due to non-Amiga related problems) and Gateway vacillated over what to do with its new acquisition.

This game is for tablets only.

Find the delicate balance between harvesting the land for resources to fund your war machines and preserving it to stay alive. Choose one of four different factions: the industrious Cartel, the militaristic Empire, the Freemen preservationists, and the Pirate traders.

The arrival of Duke Nukem 3D in the Market yesterday caused quite a stir -- not due to the excitement of the retro first-person-shooter finally making its way to Android, though, but instead because of the developer's decision to include ads in a paid app without notifying users of their existence before they purchased.

It looks like MachineWorks, the development team behind the port, listened to user cries (and a whole slew of negative Market comments/bad ratings), as they just pushed an update to the app that removes all ads.

After the Galaxy Nexus announcement, there was one question still rolling around unanswered: when is it going to be released? While that question has been answered for our brothers and sisters across the pond, those of us here in the US have been left without a word from Verizon (or anyone else, for that matter). Of course, we have heard dozens of rumors, but nothing with any proof to back it up.

With quad-core devices on the horizon, the current crop of Honeycomb-powered tablets may seem like old hat -- unless you can score one for a reasonable price, that is. Thus is the case for the Toshiba Thrive, which landed itself a place on eBay's Daily Deals site today. For a modest $330 you can grab the Thrive and its ports-o-plenty, along with 16GB of storage, a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, and Android 3.1.

For the past two weeks, we've been chomping at the bit for some good, old fashioned 1991-style ass-kicking-action. The kind of retro goodness that takes you back to the days of old while simultaneously filling your blood-lust as you saving the Earth's women from being alien-abducted for purposes of breeding. Yeah, I'm talking about none other than Duke Nukem 3D.

Pantech is looking to pull itself out of the low-end budget phone ditch by bringing some pretty awesome non-touch gesture recognition to Android. Imagine this: you're working on a car, cleaning the kitchen, painting... anything that where you're hands are going to dirty or wet and you don't want to touch your phone.  You receive an incoming call -- what do you do? How cool would it be to simply wave your hand over the device to answer?
