If you own an Android 3.0+ tablet, then you're probably always on the lookout for tablet-optimized apps. If you also happen to be a Bank of America customer, then here's a new app that you'll probably want to hit the "install" button on right away: the official Bank of America for Tablet app.

Not only does the app take advantage of the larger display of a tablet, but it also allows you to pay your bills and transfer funds, check your account balances, and find ATM and bank locations using GPS, all in a tidy and secure package.

Developers, have I got a treat for you today: AIDE - Android Java IDE. AIDE is a self-contained integrated development environment that allows devs to write, compile, and run Android apps on their Android devices. Normally, if you want to write Android apps, you do it on a separate machine running Eclipse (or an alternative IDE). Now... well, you probably still do for major projects (especially ones involving complex library dependencies), but you can edit or create smaller ones without ever leaving the Android ecosystem.

When Asus chose to release the Transformer Prime only in 32GB ($499) and 64GB ($599) models, I couldn't help but scratch my head over the lack of a $399 16GB model. Presumably it was because either the 16GB original Transformer didn't sell nearly as well as the 32GB version, or because the company was trying to market the TP as a more upmarket device. Whatever the case, it's had me thinking (especially in light of all the new tablets that were announced during MWC): how much storage is enough for the average person?

Before I got my Galaxy Nexus, I was a die hard user of GO Launcher EX. I was actually reluctant to try it at first, but a good friend of mine basically forced me to use it for a day, after which, I never looked back (Thanks, Chris!). I can't imagine having a pre-ICS phone without installing GO.

Now, the GO Team has brought the goodness of GO Launcher EX to Android 3.0+ tablets by way of GO Launcher HD.

In early January, ARCHOS let everyone know that the update to Android 4.0 would be coming "in the near future" to all G9 tablets, and a week later we saw them demoing a said update at CES. The rep at CES said the update was scheduled to roll out in the first week of February - a target which the company obviously missed. Now they've taken to their Facebook page once again to apologize for the delay and announce that "they fully anticipate deploying the upgrade within the next two weeks."

While the "anticipate" in that sentence leaves the company some wiggle room, it's nice to see the PR-challenged little company who has a spotty past on Android devices at least try to address both shortcomings.

OnLive, the company that has already revolutionized gaming is now gunning for making the same kind of splash in OS virtualization. And not just any OS virtualization, but Windows 7 in the cloud, for free - a set of words I never thought I'd write in the same sentence.

Something worth pointing out right off the bat is OnLive's "groundbreaking video compression technology" that is used to stream the Desktop cloud to your tablet.

We got a look at the Excite 10 LE's at CES when it was called the Excite X10. Now, Toshiba is bringing the thinnest and lightest tablet* to the US market. The Excite 10 LE is identical to the Excite X10 aside from a couple of letters being rearranged. The slate still packs a "multicore" OMAP processor under a 10.1" LED screen. Unfortunately, the device will be launching with Honeycomb (3.2), but is "upgradeable to Android 4.0."

    Sony officially unveiled the Sony Tablet P at IFA last August, but we have yet to see it here in the U.S. despite its release in other parts of the world. For those of you that don't remember, this unique tablet features two 5.5-inch LCD displays that fold over one another much like a Nintendo DS. What's neat about having two individual screens is that you can use use them for different functions simultaneously, so multitasking is a bit easier.
