After a surprise from Andy Rubin at D:Dive Into Mobile, a tease from Motorola themselves, and many rumors surrounding it, the Honeycomb powered Motorola Xoom is finally official. Announced today at CES, the Xoom will pack a dual-core 1GHz Tegra II processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, and vanilla Android 3.0. The Xoom eschews the recent trend of 7-inch displays on tablets, and instead opts for a 10.1-inch 1280x800 (16:10) (gorilla glass) display, which should complement the 720P video playback capabilities nicely.

Last week, Samsung was awesome enough to send us the T-Mobile variant of their Galaxy Tab for review. As of this writing, I've spent a full 9 days using the 7" tablet - more than enough time to get an intimate feel for it. Without giving too much away off the bat, I have to say that I'm fairly impressed with it, despite having a few minor niggles.

So what does the Tab do right, and where does it come up short?

Yes, the new T-Mobile myTouch 4G will be launching on November 3rd, and yes, early adopters can now pre-order it from Wirefly, but guess what? The somewhat less popular Motorola Defy is in a similar predicament: its official launch date is November 3rd, and its official price tag is $99.99, but the Internet's #1 cell phone retailer is now allowing eager buyers to pre-order the military-grade device for just about half the official price - $49.99 on a new two-year contract.

As you may remember, all 4 major US carriers are slated to receive the Galaxy Tab this year. While we now know Verizon's launch date of November 11th and T-Mobile's November 10th, Sprint only had an unofficial and shaky rumor of November 14th, leaked by BGR. Thanks to this handy inventory sheet acquired by Android Central, we can probably consider the previous rumor confirmed, if this document is indeed authentic:

On the list, the Tab is called the Samsung P1 Tablet, but that's our guy, with his 7-inch screen, 1GHz processor, Gorilla Glass, and all the fun stuff we saw in the hands-on videos (sorry - no 4G for you).

Getting my hands on the Charm was no mean feat. Motorola didn’t seem keen to send out review units to anyone in a hurry, so I took it upon myself to go buy one, under the pretext of it being a gift for my girlfriend (she has a Nokia 1661 for chrissakes).

That in itself was quite a quest, as not a single store in the state of Maine seemed to have one in stock.

Leave it to Motorola to come up with a bizarrely compelling new device that they can slip MotoBlur onto.

We’ve recently seen the Charm and Flipout with Android 2.1 and MotoBlur, and now the Defy is joining them. However, this is a touchscreen only device, and it has something else special: an IP67 water and dust resistance rating. That rating qualifies it as fully protected from dust, and immune to the effects of immersion between 15 cm and 1 m for up to 30 minutes.

Are you in the market for a strikingly rectangular low-end messaging phone running Android 2.1 and Motoblur? Come on, you know you want one!

If so, the Motorola Charm - you know, that squat little Motorola messaging phone for T-Mobile with a 2.8 inch screen and a non-slide out physical QWERTY keyboard right below it - is now officially hitting T-Mobile on August 25 for what T-Mobile USA has said on Facebook to be an "affordable" $74.99, despite the rumors that it would be free on a new two-year contract.

iFixit is at it again - this time, they’ve torn down a Dell Streak. As usual, they’ve provided a ton of pictures and a step-by-step to go with it. Just a quick rehash of the specs:

  • 5” 800x480 display
  • 5 MP camera around back, VGA camera on front
  • Android 1.6 (Donut)
  • 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU
  • Gorilla Glass-protected screen

The 15-step teardown (complete with pictures for every step) reveals a whole slew of additional details, and could prove very useful if you ever need to repair the device yourself.

While Motorola didn’t do a great job keeping CHARM under wraps, they did manage to hide a few features of the candy bar phone until today’s official press release. Given the amount of MOTOBLUR and social-networking talk going on in the CHARM’s somewhat lengthy introduction, we’ve broken it down and provided you the juicy bits for easy digestion:

  • 2.8” 320x240QVGA TFT LCD touch-capacitive display with Gorilla Glass
  • Android 2.1 with the newest "enhanced" version of MOTOBLUR
  • 3 Megapixel camera
  • Physical QWERTY keyboard
  • 2GB Removable MicroSD card included (expandable to 32GB MicroSDHC)
  • Accelerometer
  • WiFi B/G and N (Single-band 2.4GHz)
  • Can capture 24FPS video (we assume that is with VGA 640x480)
  • Secondary noise-cancellation microphone with CrystalTalk PLUS technology
  • Compatible with T-Mobile HSDPA 3.6
  • Support for Adobe Flash Lite
  • 1170mAh Lithium-ion battery
  • 3.5mm headphone jack

Dell Streak

Looks like this is the last set of Android related Dell leaks that Engadget miraculously dug up yesterday.

Dell Aero

The first leak shines some light on the Dell Aero - Dell's upcoming budget Android phone. Previously, the only information we had about this phone was the 3.5" screen, a 5MP camera, and a June release date.

Because of the budget tag, we were now not surprised to find out that the phone would be running a 624MHz Marvell CPU, which is the same CPU the sometimes laggy Spring Design Alex eReader has inside.
