More Pictures Of Motorola's Honeycomb Tablet Surface, Confirm Verizon Compatibility

Motorola's Honeycomb tablet has certainly been receiving a lot of attention as of late - more attention, perhaps, than has ever been paid to a device whose name has yet to be publicized. Nonetheless, the pieces of the puzzle are finally coming together - Engadget has scored seven pictures of the 10-inch slate:

12-12-10-mototab7-copy 12-12-10-mototab1-copy 12-12-10-mototab3-copy

Unfortunately, some of the shots appear to have been taken by Mr. Blurrycam himself - in fact, the graininess is so bad in some images that it's nearly impossible to discern what is being conveyed.

New Picture, Specs Leak Out Of Motorola's Honeycomb-Running Tablet

You could say December 7th ended with a bang - after a day crammed full of Gingerbread goodness, Andy Rubin came on stage at D: Dive Into Mobile to tease a next-gen Honeycomb tablet. Unfortunately, Google's VP of Engineering didn't give us a very in-depth look, so most of us were left hungry for more.


And more we have - in addition to the picture you're seeing above, Taiwanese forum member goldenstone provided us with the following specs:

  • 1280x800 display
  • 32 GB EMMC storage as well as a microSD card slot
  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 T20 dual-core CPU with 3D performance re-optimization
  • Gyroscope
  • 5 MP rear camera
  • 2 MP front-facing cam

Oh, and Motorola's got something hidden up its sleeve for those of you still bickering over which size is best - there will be both seven and ten-inch editions of the device.

Andy Rubin Teases Honeycomb-Running, Video Chat-Featuring, Dual-Core Processor-Packing Motorola Tablet

While the announcement everyone was expecting Andy Rubin to make at today's D: Dive Into Mobile conference was already made earlier today, the head of Android operations still had a few things hidden up his sleeves, not the least of which was a dual-core Motorola tablet:

If that didn't catch your attention, consider this: the man himself said that it will run Honeycomb, will feature video chat, and will be powered by a "dual-core 3D NVIDIA processor." Additionally, Engadget, whose editor-in-chief was sitting at the event, noticed that the tablet has no buttons at all, for better or for worse.

Acer Unveils Three New Android Tablets, Coming 2011 In Your Size

Taiwanese consumer electronics giant Acer is having a global press conference in New York right now, and they just wrapped up the hardware portion of the event. In its wake are three new Android devices to lust over. Rather than forcing you to go with one size only, Acer has an attractive trio to choose from.

HTC reportedly will launch a tablet PC using Nvidia's Tegra 2 platform and Google's Android operating system.

Samsung: Honeycomb (Android 3.5) Will Come After Gingerbread (3.0); Larger Honeycomb Tablet Coming

Disclaimer: initially, I was reluctant to pass this one on, but it looks like it may be more credible and less speculative than I first thought.

During IFA today, Samsung confirmed that Gingerbread is next and will be Android 3.0, and that it will be succeeded by Honeycomb (3.5). It is possible that things will change between now and then, but this is an official, public word from Samsung in direct response to a question - fairly concrete.
