T-Mobile SnapPad tablet trademark revealed: Flyer or Sony S2?

T-Mobile SnapPad tablet trademark revealed: Flyer or Sony S2?

T-Mobile USA has potentially revealed the name of an upcoming tablet, the T-Mobile SnapPad, courtesy of a new USPTO trademark filing. Details are scant, with the notice - filed on May 5 2011 - only saying that the title relates to "tablet computers"; the slate could be a new model, or a rebadge of an existing tablet we've already seen.

HTC Flyer: Latest victim of tablet sabotage

HTC Flyer: Latest victim of tablet sabotage

Perhaps it's Friday paranoia talking, but it does seem like the US carriers (and retailers, for that matter) want to kill the chances of every tablet other than the iPad. News that the "Scribe" active stylus for the HTC Flyer will be an $80 accessory for the WiFi-only version Best Buy will sell (and, presumably, the HTC EVO View 4G headed to Sprint) has whipped the rug out from under the tablet's stubby Android feet, making it either a very expensive - $580 for WiFi tablet and pen - proposition or merely a 7-inch slate not even running Honeycomb.

Is Dual-Touch the Future of Phones and Tablets?

Is Dual-Touch the Future of Phones and Tablets?

If one touchscreen is good, how great must two be? Tapping into the same part of the brain that screams how geekily-cool Star Trek tablet props are, the allure of a double-display smartphone or computer isn't new, but neither has it been done right. That's not stopped various new attempts, however, Acer's twin-14-inch Iconia Touchbook notebook for one, or the imminent Sprint Kyocera Echo phone for another. Double-vision each may offer, but the manufacturers responsible are still showing serious myopia in how they're delivering on the twin-touch dream.

HTC EVO View 4G to hit Sprint with Honeycomb pre-loaded

HTC EVO View 4G to hit Sprint with Honeycomb pre-loaded

Sprint will release its version of the HTC Flyer, the HTC EVO View 4G announced at CTIA 2011 last month, running Android 3.0 Honeycomb out of the box, unlike the initial GSM units. While HTC showed the Flyer running a heavily modified version of Gingerbread at the slate's debut in February, and said that early units would run the smartphone OS until a Honeycomb update could be released, a minor mention on Sprint's "coming soon" page seemingly confirms it will get the tablet-centric OS from the off.

HTC reconfirms Honeycomb Flyer update (whenever Google lets them have it)

HTC has been promising a Honeycomb update for the HTC Flyer from the start, but recent talk of Google limiting access to Android 3.0 had left some would-be tableteers concerned that the 7-incher might be stuck with Gingerbread. HTC assured us that would not be the case at the time, but it bears repeating, and so they've taken to Twitter to reiterate that "we will be offering a Honeycomb upgrade when it's made available."
