Remember last month when Intel CEO Paul Otellini said that they were actively working on porting Honeycomb to x86 processors with hopes of providing us with Intel powered Honeycomb tablets within the year? Well, it turns out that Acer may unveil the first tablet of the bunch at Computex this year: a 10.1 inch, Oak Trail sporting beast, according to Digitimes.

It's rumored that we could see this yet-unnamed tablet on the streets as early as July, but we'll just have to wait and see how that pans out.

Rumors of Amazon's first foray into the tablet world seem to be solidifying. Today, BGR received a tip adding credibility to the potential "family" of devices that the online giant is supposedly prepping. While these devices remain squarely in the realm of rumor, the few details that can be gleaned are pretty juicy.

The tip gave some info on two different tablets: "Coyote," an entry level tablet that will be running NVDIA's dual-core Tegra 2 processor, and "Hollywood" - a higher end device powered by NVIDIA's forthcoming quad-core Kal-El SoC.

The HTC Holiday has been somewhat elusive up until now, but 911sniper has gotten ahold of a leaked ROM that, if legit, shows some absolutely beastly specs for this upcoming AT&T monster. Check it out:

Here's the simple breakdown:

  • 4.5 Inch qHD 960x540 display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • 802.11 b/g/n WiFi

If the actual device holds true to these specs (and I see no reason why it wouldn't), then this is definitely a piece of hardware to watch for.

Pocketnow, via a wireless accessories website, has apparently discovered the names of 3 of the carrier-branded versions of the Galaxy S II that will be coming stateside later this year. The device will be known as the Attain on AT&T, the Function on Verizon Wireless, and the Within on Sprint.

Mysteriously absent is a T-Mobile version, suggesting either that the device won't be coming to America's pinkest carrier, or that it will be arriving in a different (QWERTY?) form-factor which does not fit the case being advertised on the source webpage.

It looks like truth may just mirror fiction. Either that or the Android Police team has some scary psychic powers (although some may call it intuition). According to Android And Me's latest rumor, Amazon is indeed set to dip their toes into the waters of the Android device market. Multiple tipsters within the industry have informed them that Amazon is working on an "entire family" of Android devices slates for a holiday 2011 arrival.

Good news for G2 users: it looks like the Android update fairy may be smiling upon you! According to TMoNews, a Gingerbread update for the G2 is in the works and it should be ready "soon."

In a nutshell, this update should bring improved battery life, some UI improvements, and a better keyboard. There really isn't a whole lot of other information available, but we'll definitely be keeping an eye on the situation and let you know as soon as more info drops.

Today, the crew over at TMoNews scored some shots and a few details of a new Samsung device, unofficially dubbed the "Exhibit 4G". As to not waste any time, let's get straight into the specs (keep in mind this is all unconfirmed):

  • 3.7-inch AMOLED display
  • 1.4GHz ARM11 processor
  • 5MP Camera with 720p video capture
  • VGA front camera
  • Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread)

That's pretty much all of the details that we have for now, but here are a few shots of the device:

Like I said, this is about as unconfirmed as it gets, so take it for what it's worth.

We've been able to speak so highly of Samsung lately, considering its timely source code releases and recent device updates, but now this happens. Rumor has it that Sammy has duped owners of the Galaxy Tab WiFi by replacing the CPU with an older version, which in turn required a downgraded graphics processor, too. This is, of course, in comparison to the 3G Galaxy Tab, which was released several months prior to the WiFi version.

The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is quickly becoming the darling of the Android tablet world. With all the specs (dual-core, Android 3.0, keyboard dock - the list goes on) and a price tag at $400, this may just be the one Honeycomb tablet to rule them all. Alas, when a great product and a great price meet, there is great demand - and when there is great demand and a less-than-great supply level, there is a high level of dejected customers leaving their electronics retailers with empty hands.

When I think of Sprint, the first thought that comes to mind is CEO Dan Hesse standing on a pier talking about being truly unlimited. I'm sure that he really does like the idea of being truly unlimited... but only when phones are concerned. You see, Sprint is reportedly going to take a different stance when it comes to data connection cards and embedded devices, such as tablets and netbooks.
