IconiaTab7-Thumb

Today at its "A Touch More Connected" launch event in New York, Acer pulled the curtain off a plethora of new electronics. Most of them were Windows products, but a couple are here for those who would prefer something running Android: the Iconia Tab 7 and the Iconia One 7. Neither product is particularly powerful, and the latter gives consumers another One product to keep up with.

The Iconia Tab 7 has an unspecified quad-core processor, a 1280x800 display, a microSD card slot, and up to 6 hours of battery life.

With the introduction of the Galaxy TabPRO series earlier this year, you might expect the older Galaxy Tab line to continue to occupy the lower end of the market. And you'd be right: the Galaxy Tab 4 (or, stylized, Tab4) devices roughly follow in the footsteps of the Tab 3 hardware with 7-inch, 8-inch, and 10.1-inch varieties. And yes, they still have physical navigation buttons.

All three Tab4 models will be offered in WiFi, 3G, and LTE flavors, though the mobile versions probably won't make it to America any time soon.

So here's the thing, if you need to learn a new language and wouldn't mind getting your hands on a nice tablet, Amazon's willing to help scratch both itches at once. For a limited time, you can save 40% off the price of a Rosetta Stone 5-Level set and get a free refurbished Kindle Fire HD with your purchase. If you combine the cost of the Kindle with the Rosetta Stone discount, you're looking at a total savings of $369.99.

When Huawei announced the new 7-inch MediaPad Honeycomb tablet this morning, chaos confusion ensued. The device runs Android 3.2, a new build of Honeycomb that nobody outside Google or Huawei seemed to have seen before. It didn't help that Huawei was quite secretive about what additions the new OS brought (other than support for 7-inch tablets and a new version number).

Well now, thanks to the folks at This is my next, we have a better idea of what's new, though it's important to keep in mind that this information is still very much a rumor, albeit one allegedly confirmed with three separate tipsters.

So it's true: the reason we haven't seen any 7-inch Honeycomb tablets thus far is that Android 3.0 just doesn't fit well on screens of that size. This has been our pet theory for some time now, but this morning, Huawei came right out and confirmed it with the announcement of their Android 3.2-running MediaPad.

We know you'll want to know all about the new flavor of Honeycomb, but at the moment all we know is that, unlike Android 3.1, the version that runs on most Android tablets, 3.2 will support 7-inch displays.
