Lenovo took the wraps off its newest editions to the Ideatab tablet lineup this morning, announcing the S2110, A2107, and A2109. All three tablets cater to a different niche, with the S2110 sporting a Transformer-like keyboard dock, the A2109 coming in at a very affordable price point, and the A2107 hitting the 7" slate market.

The Ideatab S2110 is probably the most versatile of the bunch, thanks to its keyboard dock accessory.

Amazon, in a press release posted this morning, announced that its "#1 best-selling product," the Kindle Fire, is now sold out. The release boasts the Fire's millions of sales, noting that it managed to eat up an impressive 22% of tablet sales in the US, and added to the overall success of Amazon's digital product sales.

What makes this announcement interesting is that Amazon has a press conference scheduled for September 6th, meaning we're likely to see the latest member of the Kindle family unveiled very soon.

You may recognize this little guy from previous leaks of the so-called HTC Proto. The device looked very similar to the Desire V and, indeed, HTC's latest announcement is dubbed the Desire X. While it's no One X, the device does pack a dual-core Snapdragon S4. Unfortunately, it's not that one. This is the MSM8225 which still uses a 45nm architecture so it's not nearly as zippy as the S4 we all know and love from other, more high-end phones.

Mystery. Magic. Oversized phones and cameras running Android. If these are things that make you happy, then Samsung's Mobile Unpacked event from today will be the best hour and half you can spend staring at your computer's screen (short of reading AP, of course). And just in case you weren't able to catch the live stream during the event today, Sammy has now made the entire thing available online.

Now you can see first hand what happens when Samsung, a couple of magicians, and and MC who talks louder than everyone else get together.

This is Sony's successor to last year's Tablet S, and packs a nice upgrade in the spec department:

  • Slim new aluminum body and splash-proof design
  • 9.4” HD display with OptiContrast Panel with low-friction coating
  • NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor and Android 4.0.3 operating system
  • 1GB RAM
  • Android version 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
  • Various experiences with original applications and Sony’s network services

According to Sony, the device is expected to ship in early September, so getting your order in now guarantees that you'll have it as soon it's released.

The OG Galaxy Tab may be dead to Samsung, but, as always, you can count on the community to keep older devices alive. Official CM 10 nightlies for the original Galaxy Tab (p1000, p1000l, and p1000n) just hit the CyanogenMod download site, so owners of those devices can finally get a taste of Jelly Bean in its purest form.

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

Update: Not only does the update address the reboot issues, but it also brings about a very useful new feature: cycling directions for 10 different countries (Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK)! This includes full turn-by-turn, voice-guidance in Maps Navigation for all 12 supported countries (all previously mentioned, plus the U.S. and Canada), as well. Getting around on your bike has never been easier!

Samsung's rumored Galaxy Camera, which we saw leak just a short while earlier, is now official. The Jelly Bean packing point-and-shoot is Samsung's first foray into Android-powered cameras, and is in fact helping to shape what could become a successful niche market (after all, we did just see Nikon unveil a new Android-powered point and shoot).

Of course what you're really interested in is the camera's specs. The Galaxy Camera doesn't seem to disappoint on paper, packing a 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor with an impressive 16.3 effective megapixels.

The words "Samsung Galaxy Camera" are nothing new; in fact, we first heard about this potential late last week. Looks like there was actually something to that, as full details, specs, and even a couple of images have landed in the hands of PocketNow.

The camera is said to sport a massive 4.8" display, 21x optical zoom, and 16MP BSI CMOS sensor. Under the hood, it's purportedly sporting the same SoC found in the Galaxy S III - a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos - along with 8GB of storage and a microSD card slot.
