Providing the grunt inside of various gadgets lets you take certain liberties, and in Qualcomm's case it's an HTC Jetstream on its Snapdragon stand, flown into Istanbul especially from AT&T. The 10-inch Honeycomb tablet was sharing deck space with its 7-inch Flyer sibling, though aesthetically it's more reminiscent of the harlequin-style Salsa to our eyes. Read on for some first impressions.

Congratulations AT&T, you killed HTC’s tablet

Congratulations AT&T, you killed HTC’s tablet

HTC just can't catch a break with its US tablet plans. The HTC Flyer, when it launched as the EVO View 4G in the US, came with its most obvious component - the digital stylus that differentiated it from all the other Android tablets on the market - as an optional accessory. Now, AT&T has released the HTC Jetstream, a 10-inch Honeycomb model, and it's time for another face-smack moment. The carrier is asking $699.99, and that's with a two-year data agreement. It's almost like AT&T doesn't want the Jetstream to succeed.

Toshiba AT200 hands-on [Video]

Toshiba has taken the wraps off of its new Android Honeycomb tablet, the Toshiba AT200, and we just spent some time up-close with the brand new slate here at IFA 2011. Toshiba only had a couple of units on hand at the show, only one of which was functional, but it's the aesthetic that makes this slate particularly stand out. Far thinner and more pleasing to the eye than the Thrive, the AT200 also beats the existing thinnest Honeycomb slate, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Will carriers kill the Galaxy Tab 7.7?

All eyes have been on Samsung this morning, with the company's compact tablet, the Galaxy Tab 7.7, finally breaking cover. It's hard to argue with a better-than-720p Super AMOLED Plus display, Kindle-besting thinness and 10hr battery (at least on paper), but the big question hanging over the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is whether - like its predecessor - its potential success will be scuppered by the North American carriers.
