If you didn't believe it before, you sure will now, as Samsung has officially announced their intent to have the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus made available in the USA starting November 13th for $399.99 USD.

This device will be available through Best Buy, Amazon, Tiger Direct, Fry’s, and other "fine retailers" come November and will feature an app by the name of "Peel" which works as a smart remote TV application for all your entertainment purposes - tap away!

ASUS Eee Pad Slider Review

ASUS Eee Pad Slider Review

Tablets took ASUS by surprise this year. The company revealed its two models, the Eee Pad Transformer and Eee Pad Slider, back at CES 2011 in January, and went on to see the Transformer become a sell-out success. The Slider SL101, meanwhile, failed to appear on schedule, and it's only now - ten months after we saw it first - that units are finally reaching store shelves. Has time been kind, or is this Android tablet just a netbook with pretensions? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

ICS rules phones and slates as Honeycomb and Gingerbread crumble

ICS rules phones and slates as Honeycomb and Gingerbread crumble

As far as versions of mobile operating systems go, Google has been rather up front with the names for Android, each of them sticking to a kind of delicious food - this week in Hong Kong we've confirmed that no longer will the treats Honeycomb and Gingerbread rule the separate worlds of Tablets and Smartphones - there will be one, Ice Cream Sandwich. This version of Android is numbered 4.0 and the name, Ice Cream Sandwich, has two meanings when it comes down to it - As you may recall from all the way back at Mobile World Congress 2011, there was an event we were at where Google's Eric Schmidt first told us of a future with one Android OS.

Google’s Honeycomb offensive musters just 3.4m tablets

Google’s Honeycomb offensive musters just 3.4m tablets

Apple's iPad may still be sitting pretty at the top of the consumer tablet charts, but questions still remain over whether Android 3.x Honeycomb really has been a sales failure so far. Google and its manufacturer partners are yet to announce official sales figures for tablets running Android, leaving us dependent on supply chain rumors and guesstimates. Android developer Al Sutton reminded us, though, that with a little math we could get an estimate of quite how many Honeycomb slates are in the wild. The number? Roughly 3.4m.

Dell tablet focus is Windows 8 not Android

Dell tablet focus is Windows 8 not Android

Dell is betting on Windows 8 as the company's best chance of tablet success against the iPad, with CEO Michael Dell arguing that the Android slate market "has not developed" as predicted. Speaking at Dell World 2011 this week, V3 reports, Dell described the PC manufacturer as "very aligned with Microsoft around Windows 8" and teased that "you'll hear more about Windows 8 from us and see a wide range of products released."

Apple Aussie win could mean death to all Android slates warns expert

Apple Aussie win could mean death to all Android slates warns expert

Apple's sales injunction success over the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia earlier today could have wide-reaching impact on other Android tablets in the country, it's been suggested, with one of Steve Jobs' own patents helping strike the killing blow. The IP in question is particularly broad, FOSS Patents points out, and potentially "broad enough in scope that Google and its OEM partners can't work around them without rendering their products less appealing, or even entirely unappealing, to consumers."

Motorola XOOM 2 and Spyder leaked photos appear

Motorola XOOM 2 and Spyder leaked photos appear

When a leaked set of photos of a device, or in this case two devices: the Motorola Spyder (aka DROID RAZR) and XOOM 2, are released with carrier logos splayed across them, it generally means that release time is near. We've learned this year that this isn't always true, but on the whole we can judge a leak by its cover. Here what we're seeing is a brand new handset and a second-generation tablet on the way straight out of the generally-ok photo takers hands. Motorola, will you bring the heat inside 2011?

HTC Jetstream Review

HTC Jetstream Review

Presenting HTC's vision for the perfect 10-inch Android tablet, the HTC Jetstream, complete with a Qualcomm MSM8660 1.5 Ghz dual-core processor under the hood and a pricy $700 USD bill attached to it carried by AT&T. The question we've got on our minds, and have had on our minds since the pricing was first announced is: how could a 10-inch tablet enter an environment with several 10-inch tablets already having been out for several months with a significantly higher price and expect to do well for sales? As it turns out, this HTC tablet does not hold back - not in construction or content - but will its individual specifications be enough to create one product worthy of the price tag?

Galaxy Nexus Google Hero Phone, now with much more ideal specs

Everyone loves idillic specs on their yet-unannounced gadgets, that's why when we heard this morning's news about the Android-laden Galaxy Nexus having a 5-megapixel camera and a Verizon exclusive deal, we just weren't satisfied - thus we found our OWN source, one with a much better outlook on things. Everyone has these unnamed inside-scoop-having officials that they like to toss around, so we figured, hey, lets get a few of our own! That said, it appears that there are a few conflicting stories out there today popping up since this morning's "leak", not all of them ours - see what you think!
