Target is finally selling some Android tablets

Target is finally selling some Android tablets

If you've been following along with the epic telling of Target Superstore's future in the Mobile business with your humble narrator, you know that they're certainly having an interesting time selling Android tablets. Amid the Apple's iPad 2 sitting always at least one aisle away from the Android selection in a MUCH nicer showing than the Android tablets have ever had and the smartphone wall being dominated by two iPhone displays three times the size of any other smartphone, one would think that Apple would be dominating. As it turns out, one Android tablet in particular may be jumping off the shelves.

Target Android tablet selection lifted above Apple’s iPad 2

Target Android tablet selection lifted above Apple’s iPad 2

This week Target will be evolving their mobile selection in several places, most notably in the tablet department, where Android tablets will be much closer to the smartphone selection than the iPad 2. For those of you that follow my analytics of the Target department store chain (whose home is right here in sunny Minnesota), you know that I've had more than one conniption fit over both the placement of Android tablets and the arrangement of their entire mobile section in general. Just this morning while picking up some random oddities, I noticed that big red may well have heard my siren call: the Android tablets are now less than 10 feet away from the smartphones.

Say hello to the newest 4G Android tablet, the ACER Iconia Tab A501. What we have here is the twin brother to the popular Tab A500 yet this bad boy has been treated to some AT&T 4G love.

GIT Media Corp Announces two Android tablets, one with a Samsung processor, the other NVIDIA

In a rather interesting move from another company you may well have never heard of in your life, GIT Media Group, Inc., have released information regarding two new Android-toting tablet PCs. There's one called the Surge and one called the Pro. The Pro has a Samsung Dual Core Exynos 4210 processor dual-core processor while the Surge has an NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor. You'll recognize both of these processors because they're on some of the most well-known Android devices of the day, for example the NVIDIA Tegra 2 sits on almost every single dual-core tablet computer on the market: Motorola XOOM, Acer Iconia Tab A500 (and 501 and 100), Asus Eee Pad Transformer, and the list goes on. The Exynos processor, on the other hand, sits most famously on the brand new-to-USA Samsung Galaxy S II.

Iconia Tab A100 Review

Iconia Tab A100 Review

It is true that Acer only a few months ago brought us one of the first round of Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets In the Iconia Tab A500, a 10-inch tablet with a thin metal backing attached to one of the cheapest prices on the market. What we've got now is only the second 7-inch tablet on the market and the first one to carry any version of Honeycomb. Furthermore, this A100 7-inch Acer tablet is the world's first Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet, 3.2 being the first tablet-oriented Google mobile OS made for tablets of under 10 inches in size. This tablet is not meant to be the thinnest tablet on the market, and neither this nor the original Samsung Galaxy Tab 7-inch tablet are likely to be winning the tablet fashion show, but what we DO have here is a nice little "tween" sized Android device toting NVIDIA's Tegra 2 dual-core processor - will it carve its own piece out of the tablet market pie due to it's relatively unique nature?

Iconia Tab A100 Unboxing and hands-on [video]

The 7-inch form factor may have opened up the Android tablet market, with Samsung's Galaxy Tab paving the way even before Google believed the platform was ready for slates, but since then all has been quiet on the tweener front. Honeycomb's unsuitability for medium-sized screens left several companies with their tablets on the back-burner; those that did launch, like HTC with the Flyer, stuck to smartphone versions of Android rather than risk poor compatibility. Now, bringing Android 3.2 Honeycomb to market comes the Acer Iconia Tab A100, a 7-inch dual-core model promising the performance of its bigger siblings but the pocket-friendliness of a filofax.
