Motorola Introduces XOOM 'Family Edition', Coming Exclusively To Best Buy On October 16th For $379

Motorola is resurrecting the world's first Honeycomb tablet one last time before the next generation of XOOM becomes available, but this time it has a family-friendly twist. It's called the XOOM Family Edition, and it's basically the same Wi-Fi XOOM that has been out for months now, but it's packing around $40 of additional games and other software specifically targeted at kids. Among the bundled software is Zoodles, an app that locks the home button and only grants access to user-defined apps, so you can keep those kiddos away from apps that you deem unfit.

[Video] Pre-Release Preview: ShadowGun Isn't Just A 3rd Person Shooter, It's A Technical Marvel

When we first saw ShadowGun back in May, we were immediately struck by what was at the time a platform demonstration for NVIDIA's Kal-El quad mobile processor. Character textures were the best we'd seen on any Android game, and the environments looked rich and well-crafted.

Now the developer, MadFinger games, has given us (and a number of other sites - no one has the full version yet, and I mean no one) a pre-release version of the game to try out - optimized for Tegra 2 processors (a Kal-El optimized version will be released later).

[Review] ASUS Eee Pad Slider: Heap Another Honeycomb Tablet Onto The Pile, Albeit One With A Trick Keyboard

When we first saw ASUS' Eee Pad Slider at CES, we very nearly dismissed it at once. It was thick, tablets with physical keyboards showed no sign of gaining popularity, and Honeycomb had yet to come out of the woodwork. Besides, ASUS' own cheaper, slimmer Transformer had already caught our hearts. Our confidence was not raised by the long period of silence that followed - in fact, the only Slider-related posts we've written since January are an unofficial hands-on by a Romanian blog and the announcement of the slate's pricing.

[Updated: Flyer Pricing Correction] US Cellular Announces a Triad Of New HTC Devices Set To Arrive Next Month: Hero S, Wildfire S, and Flyer

Samsung Releases Kernel Source Code For The Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi And LTE Variants

Samsung officially announced the Galaxy Tab 8.9 yesterday, and today, the kernel source has been released. Considering we already know what the Tegra 2 is capable of and how much it can be overclocked while remaining completely stable, I expect to see 1.4GHz kernels pop up before the device is even released.

The source is out for both the Wi-Fi and LTE variants, so if you're into tinkerin', hit the respective links below to download.
