What an interesting 24hours it has been regarding Sony and the Playstation Network. Sony held a press conference early this morning to announce officially their two upcoming Android tablets, codenamed the S1 and S2. Both will be Playstation certified. This afternoon, Sony finally came clean about what happened to the PSN as well.
You know those great gaming laptops with all the nice glowy colors and generally sporting a slightly higher price than other laptops? The Alienware laptops are what I'm referring to. Well it seems that Alienware could be working on a gaming tablet as well. If they haven't started yet, they are giving it some serious consideration.
Best Buy seems to be getting into the Android tablet scene in a rather big way. They already have a decent selection of tablets available and the pre-order for the Acer Iconia dual-core tablet just went up today. Now word is that the Toshiba dual-core Android tablet will also be sold at Best Buy making that the second Tegra tablet for them.
If you are in the market for a new Android tablet and what one of those nifty dual-core Honeycomb tablets but don't have $800 (XOOM) to drop on one, or even $530 on contract (G-Slate), you'll be pleased to know that Acer is releasing theirs for a mere $449.99 and is on Best Buy right now for those wanting to pre-order one.
Awhile back there was a little rumor going around that Sony was developing an Android tablet codenamed the 'S1'. After that initial rumor hit the internet, all went quiet, until now. Sony has confirmed they are working on an Android Tablet that will be available by the end Summer. Granted, as of late, lot of people miss the initial release dates.
It has been awhile since we had a really good rumor going around and why not on April Fools day, of all days, to have one come to light. Kyocera, the people who manufactured the slightly odd dual-screen Android phone called the Echo, are apparently developing a 'gaming tablet' for Android now. Mr. Blurry Cam got involved.
Samsung just got finished with their Unpacked event over at CTIA and have announced two new tablets coming our way very soon, summer in fact. The Galaxy Tablet 8.9 and the Galaxy Tablet 10.1 will be heading into our hands this summer with some seriously good pricing to top it all off. Oh, did we mention they are dual-core?
Earlier this year during CES 2011 we got to get a little up close and personal with the upcoming Toshiba dual-core Android tablet. This was also one of our top choices back then for Tegra 2 Android tablets and it still is to this day. Between the look, the nice back grip and just overall hardware, it is definitely a solid tablet.
Well as you may or may not have realized by now, the Motorola XOOM is now available for purchase. While you have to drop some heavy cash to get one, especially off contract for $799 and even on contract at $599, the fine folks over at XDA have discovered a way to save yourself $200 off the no contract pricing!
With all the companies getting into the Android tablet game these days, we are definitely not surprised to find out that information has been leaked out regarding an Android tablet that Sony (not Sony Ericsson) is developing. So far the specs are pretty impressive and as with all things Sony, the design is rather unique.
HTC announced their upcoming Android tablet, the HTC Flyer, at MWC today and it was sporting some pretty decent specs while others left you wondering "why?". The HTC Flyer is also their first Android device sporting the OnLive cloud gaming service which is no surprise after their $40 million invest into the company.
