At the Sprint event on Day 1 of CTIA 2011, a lovely humid Tuesday in Orlando, Florida, the stage was a round staircase leading up to two pedestals covered with golden sheets until whammo! They were thusly revealed. This is a 3G/4G Android tablet with dual cameras, video call functionality, high definition video capture on the back, a Flash-enabled email. On this 7-inch screen you be able to use the Scribe, a pen device that'll work out of the box with this tablet - does this seem familiar to you? It's because this is the US version of the HTC Flyer.

HTC EVO 3D Revealed at Sprint Event [CTIA 2011]

At a utterly lovely Sprint media event at CTIA 2011, gold and yellow tones abound, Sprint has announced what they hope will be a heavy contender in this massively competitive 2011 season for Android.

Samsung has officially priced and dated its new Galaxy Tab models, and it seems the company may be the first Android tablet manufacturer to actually compete with the iPad/iPad 2 on sticker price.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 official

As we expected, Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy Tab 8.9, its 8.9-inch Android 3.0 Honeycomb slate that slots in-between the original 7-inch Galaxy Tab and the larger Galaxy Tab 10.1 which also makes its US debut at CTIA 2011 this week.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been back into the engineering labs since we saw it in Barcelona last month, shedding some bulk to better compete with the iPad 2.

It's hard to argue with the fact that the iPad 2 sent Samsung rushing back to the lab to try to squeeze some bulk out of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, but then it's also clear that both the 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 slates are appealing hardware in their own right. Each slimmer and lighter than the second-gen Apple, they're as close to Star Trek style sci-fi tablets as we've seen so far, making Motorola's XOOM look fat in comparison.
