SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: February 4 2011

First and foremost, Android Community would like to wish you a Happy Chinese Android New Year! Next, grab the release dates for both the Motorola XOOM and HTC ThunderBolt, and see how Android Ice Cream will bring Honeycomb functions to handsets. Then hear a cryptic message from ASUS as their CEO promises a "secret weapon" to VANQUISH iPad 2. Meanwhile Apple's doing quite well as the iPhone launches on Verizon, setting first day launch records in just two hours - perhaps due in part to their clever beatdown of AT&T via a "Can You Hear Me Now?" ad spot. Oh an that iPad magazine The Daily? It's already hacked and free. All this and MORE on SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up!
