SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: December 7 2010

Another super fun explosive magical morning here on the R3 Media Network with no less than a peek at Android Honeycomb, Google Maps for Mobile 5.0, and a Gingerbread keyboard sneak into Android 2.2 Froyo. Then we've got a big huge review of the Advent Vega tablet, you can take a peek at Amazon Kindle for Web in a full access preview, and have a look at Apache Wave as it splashes forth as sort of a herald of what's Googling out later today (could it be Chrome OS?) All this and MORE on SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up!

The Daily Slash: December 2 2010

NASA basically stole the show today, and rightly so, as geobiologist Felisa Wolfe-Simon announced that she and her team had discovered a form of life that existed outside our known spectrum of living beings. Our very definition of life has just expanded. After that, it's just Light Peak this, 4G LTE that, a floating cellphone over there, life-size 3D holographics over there, oh and ANGRY BIRDS SEASONS is now in the Apple app store! And we got an Advent Vega tablet to look at! Hooray!

Welcome to a morning of great discovery! First, NASA discovers a new form of life that opens the door toward a whole new way of thinking about... well... life!

The Daily Slash: November 19 2010

It's a [FEATURED] fantasy today! We've got columns and special posts by the barrel-full, and you're gonna love em! First thing in the morning we got a pre-noon delivery from the FedEx truck - what did the FedEx man bring for us to unbox and get our hands on? A NOOKcolor, fresh off the factory line! Then we write a couple of columns: one on the raging state of the Tablets market, and one on the current quick-paced state of political news. Then Josh Marinacci says webOS will be available soon for ALL Palm devices, there's a White iPhone 4 sale in China, and the feature stream begins. Last night our man Vince was at PEPCOM and brought back video demos of Gorilla Glass, a three screen monitor from Samsung, and a NOOKcolor. Finally (there's more?!) the last installment of Evan's Week with the HTC HD7 is up - Xbox LIVE! All this and even MORE on The Daily Slash!

iPad 2 Up, Samsung Galaxy Tab Down & Tablets Out for the Count

iPad 2 Up, Samsung Galaxy Tab Down & Tablets Out for the Count

Tablets are the new rage. There's no denying that the tablet market has exploded since the release of Apple's iPad. Their tablet device managed to stir the entire market up, and now everyone is racing to get the best of the best into the customer's hands. Or, perhaps the point is just to sell as many as possible. Whatever the case may be, it seems to be working. The iPad is still selling like hot cakes, and it's already targeted as one of the most wanted devices for this holiday season. But, there are competitors, some of them pretty strong in their own right. And yet, as tablet sales are surely going to continue forward with strong figures, it seems that some analysts see some of the strongest competitors out there holding back on production, due to low sales. While there are other tablets being sold out within just a few hours. So, what's the deal?

SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: November 19 2010

Hooray! Mail came early today and we were given our Nook Color to grab and to open and to hold (aka unboxing and hands-on). Then we find out that the iPhone alone is worth more than almost every firm in the WORLD. Cox gives you money back for the minutes you don't use, and Google wipes away that StreetView data they were never supposed to have in the first place. Advent Vega offers up their budget Android tablet for sale and basically instantly sells out, and MySpace opens their doors to Facebook and signs the oncoming apocalypse.

ViewSonic ViewPad 10 launch [Video]

ViewSonic ViewPad 10 launch [Video]

ViewSonic's ViewPad 10 is the bigger, dual-boot sibling to the all-Android ViewPad 7, offering a choice between Android or Windows 7 in one, 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen slate.  Back at IFA 2010 it was still known as the ViewPad 100 and all the company had to show was a rather unstable prototype; now, with the full launch expected on November 15 priced at £449 and with the same trade-in discount scheme as the ViewPad 7, we caught up with the ViewPad 10 to see if its dual-personalities had bedded in.

Tablets: A Prescription for Confusion

Tablets: A Prescription for Confusion

"It appears to be just a handful of credible entrants" said Apple CEO Steve Jobs on iPad rivals, "not exactly an avalanche." It's certainly been a shaky few weeks for tablets in general; while Apple's slate can apparently do little wrong, contributing nicely to another record financial quarter for the Cupertino company, the rest of the market is looking deeply troubled. Qualms over platforms, sizes, pricing and usability have all come to a head over the past seven days, leaving manufacturers looking almost as confused as the would-be consumers.

TegaTech Tega v2 Windows 7/Android tablet gets hands-on treatment

TegaTech Tega v2 Windows 7/Android tablet gets hands-on treatment

The Windows 7 tablets continue to trickle out, and after the mediocre showing of CTL's 2goPAD, can TegaTech's Tega v2 do any better?  The 10.1-inch multitouch slate runs an Intel Atom N455 1.66GHz processor, with 2GB of DDR3 RAM and GMA 3150 graphics, and the first units are already filtering out; long-standing tableteer Rob Bushway has been playing with one, while Pocket-Lint have another.
