Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 Review

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 Review

This week we've seen two Motorola tablets, both of them with essentially the same name DROID XYBOARD, this the smaller of the two at 8.2-inches in screen size. While the 10.1-inch display sized iteration costs a bit more and does afford you a bit more screen real-estate, what you're about to see is an account that'll let you know how little you're missing when you go with the slightly more convenient sized 8.2. That and we've got a couple of accessories to peek at as well. Also note that if you're looking for the 10.1-inch version, you've only to check out the timeline after the second paragraph to head on down the rabbit hole.

ASUS: ICS for Transformer Prime due Jan 2012

ASUS has announced that Italian would-be buyers of the Eee Pad Transformer Prime will have to wait until the end of January 2012 before they can pick up the Tegra 3 tablet; however, it will likely be released running Ice Cream Sandwich as standard. The OS news lends further weight to the rumors that ASUS will have the Android 4.0 upgrade ready next month, with previous comments from the company only outlining a vague Q1 2012 window for its release.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and XYBOARD 8.2 hands-on

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and XYBOARD 8.2 hands-on

Motorola's first-gen XOOM launched with plenty of promise at the beginning of the year, but Honeycomb - and some expensive data plans from Verizon - left the Android alternative to the iPad looking less than appealing. Now Motorola's second attempt at the segment, the XYBOARD 10.1 and XYBOARD 8.2, have arrived, fresh to the SlashGear test bench with new angular styling, faster processors and some special features that might at least give new tablet shoppers an idea what exactly to use big-screen slates for. Read on for our first impressions.

Toshiba Excite Android tablet gets release date

Toshiba Excite Android tablet gets release date

When the first Toshiba Android tablet was released, it seemed like a really big deal - at one point it was even rumored that they'd be the ones to host the tablet-centric Android 3.0 Honeycomb as a hero - alas that did not happen, and now that the first iteration (call the Toshiba Thrive, just so you know) is both too fat and unwieldily to sell as a top dog, the big T is sending out a new generation called Toshiba Excite. This tablet was revealed a few weeks ago as a contender for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with its dual-core 1.2Ghz Texas Instruments OMAP4 processor and its 10.1-inch display at 1280 x 800 resolution - and today Mobile Syrup relays Toshiba information that it'll be on sale come February 2012.

ASUS Transformer Prime vs iPad 2, benchmark tests

ASUS Transformer Prime vs iPad 2, benchmark tests

There's so very much to say about a couple of devices when you're comparing them, especially two titans like the iPad 2 and the Asus Transformer Prime, but what we're going to do here is get down to some basics - namely some benchmark tests that work just as well on both iOS and Android - so that we can have a clear view of how the two work in relation to one another. We've got a few tests lined up here, first of all SunSpider, an internet browser-based JavaScript benchmark which tests how well your internet is going to work based on the machine more than your connection. Next there's Rightware's BrowserMark, another test that sits in the internet browser. Finally there's GLBenchmark 2.1 which is one of the only apps that works on both iOS and Android outside of the browser, and frames per second across the screen is what it works with.
