So You Want A Tablet?

So You Want A Tablet?

Scan the headlines, and you'd be forgiven for thinking that everybody had a tablet these days. The iPad broke the market open, and since that point we've seen a torrent of rivals each trying to take the touchscreen crown. It's a tricky segment to judge, and even harder if you're trying to take your first steps into tableteering. Get up to speed with your options - and advice on which slate to select - after the cut!

Motorola CEO blames open Android Market for device woes; MOTOBLUR adding greedy app alerts

Motorola CEO blames open Android Market for device woes; MOTOBLUR adding greedy app alerts

Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha has blamed poorly tested third-party Android apps for underwhelming performance on Android phones and tablets, claiming that 70-percent of all of the returned devices the company sees are rejected because applications have affected usability. "For power consumption and CPU use, those apps are not tested," Jha said during a webcast of the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Technology conference. "We're beginning to understand the impact that has."

Novatel Expedite E362 LTE modem gets Verizon 4G approval: Next stop XOOM?

Novatel Expedite E362 LTE modem gets Verizon 4G approval: Next stop XOOM?

Novatel Wireless has become the first modem manufacturer to get its embedded LTE module certified by Verizon Wireless for use on the carrier's growing 4G LTE network, with the Expedite E362 also offering backward compatibility to 2G/3G GSM and CDMA networks. Interestingly, as well as working with various flavors of Windows, the miniPCI modem also supports Android (from Froyo to Honeycomb), meaning this could well end up being the LTE card that slots into Motorola's XOOM 4G.

Tablet 3G: The Connectivity Headache

Tablet 3G: The Connectivity Headache

"3G or not 3G; that is the question." The pun may be appalling, but the decision itself is more than enough to drive new tablet buyers to Hamlet-style distraction. Do they opt for cheaper, WiFi-only slates and potentially spend half their tableteering time chasing hotspots, or does a 3G-enabled model make more sense, albeit at greater expense and/or with a minimum data agreement?

HTC Flyer: Latest victim of tablet sabotage

HTC Flyer: Latest victim of tablet sabotage

Perhaps it's Friday paranoia talking, but it does seem like the US carriers (and retailers, for that matter) want to kill the chances of every tablet other than the iPad. News that the "Scribe" active stylus for the HTC Flyer will be an $80 accessory for the WiFi-only version Best Buy will sell (and, presumably, the HTC EVO View 4G headed to Sprint) has whipped the rug out from under the tablet's stubby Android feet, making it either a very expensive - $580 for WiFi tablet and pen - proposition or merely a 7-inch slate not even running Honeycomb.

Forget XOOM, sue your rivals instead analyst advises Motorola

Forget XOOM, sue your rivals instead analyst advises Motorola

Since you can't beat 'em, sue 'em - that's the advice from one analyst to Motorola Mobility, who calls the Motorola XOOM a failure, Honeycomb "dead on arrival" and the Android Market "a disaster." Global Equities' Trip Chowdry throws out a hugely-ranging estimate for the number of XOOM tablets sold - between 15,000 and 120,000, he reckons - and suggests that, Fortune reports, rather than attempt to compete with Apple and RIM, Motorola should aim to pick off its Android OEM counterparts with patent lawsuits.

Verizon Undecided About Carrying BlackBerry PlayBook

Verizon Undecided About Carrying BlackBerry PlayBook

RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook just launched yesterday without much fanfare and doused with lukewarm reviews. And now, it may have a difficult time getting carriers to take on the product. The PlayBook released yesterday was only the WiFi version, with plans for a 4G version to come later. RIM has said that it expected Verizon Wireless to be a distribution partner for its PlayBook, but today the carrier said that it has not yet confirmed the decision.

Verizon, AT&T “pleased” with Xoom and Atrix sales

Verizon, AT&T “pleased” with Xoom and Atrix sales

We covered several analyst reports yesterday, saying that the Motorola Xoom and Atrix were sales failures. Not so, say Verizon and AT&T. Verizon issued a statement to Computerworld, stating "We are pleased with customer response to the Xoom." And AT&T issued a statement saying "Our customers are very satisfied with the Atrix, and we are equally as pleased with the results to date." Neither company has released sales figures. So what is the real story?
