Well, it looks like Motorola's updates to Android 2.1 Eclair updates aren't the only things leaving users hopelessly disappointed due to delays; Stefano Giovannoni's AlessiTab, which promises to be the ultimate kitchen device, has just been delayed from its scheduled release date of October to a vague point in November of this year. Worse still (at least for us who live in the United States), the home tablet will initially launch exclusively in Italy, and for the price of €399 (about $535), which is a full €99 more than what it was originally priced at. Still, with:
- a DVB-T digital TV tuner
- a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen
- a front-facing camera for video chat
- a unique and super sexy design (see pictures above)
it's no wonder this device got me so excited at first.

The planets have aligned: MeeGo, the latest operating system that will power phones and tablets and which you've probably never heard of, has just collided with Android, a mobile operating system made by... oh, you all know what Android is. Right?
Anyhow, the WeTab, which does indeed run the former of those two operating systems, will also be able to run applications designed for the latter, ie Android! It isn't clear whether this means that it will offer access to the Android Market or merely be able to run Android apps downloaded off the Internet, though the tablet will ship with an app store called the "Meta Store".
