Nationite MIDnite Android 2.2 MID: an affordable Cortex A8 tablet?

Nationite MIDnite Android 2.2 MID: an affordable Cortex A8 tablet?

There's been no shortage of Android tablets in recent months, many little more than PMP hardware repurposed for MID duties with a copy of the Google OS; rarer are models based on the speedy ARM Cortex A8 technology as used in the iPad's Apple A4 CPU or Samsung's Hummingbird.  We're curious, then, about the Nationite MIDnite (a WITS A81-E rebadge), packing a 600MHz Texas Instruments OMAP3 3530 core with a 7-inch touchscreen, Android 2.2 and access to the Android Market, despite a sub-$200 preorder price.

Dell Streak Beta Units Being Blocked from AT&T’s Network? [Updated]

Dell Streak Beta Units Being Blocked from AT&T’s Network? [Updated]

We all know the Dell Streak is coming to AT&T, we just don't know exactly when, quite yet. But, for a few lucky individuals out there, who happened to be included in Dell's beta tests of the Mobile Internet Device (MID), they've been able to use the device to their heart's contents for a little while now. Handed out in Austin, Texas, the users were supposed to test the device as they would any other, and apparently they were going to be able to keep them after the tests completed.

Dell Streak $550 price posted then pulled

Dell Streak $550 price posted then pulled

Looks like whoever's running Dell's servers needs to drink less coffee.  After first announcing that the 5-inch Dell Streak Android tablet would go on sale today - and then telling us that it was a mistake caused by some "site tests"  - the company then revealed pricing in a new blog post, only to yank that.  Unfortunately, once something is out on the internet it's tough to get it back in, and so we now have a pretty good idea that the Streak will cost $549.99 from Dell themselves, unlocked and contract-free, or $299.99 from AT&T with a new, two-year agreement.

Huawei S7 gets previewed: multimedia good, battery bad? [Video]

Huawei S7 gets previewed: multimedia good, battery bad? [Video]

Huawei's S7 Android tablet - slotting neatly in-between the Dell Streak and the Apple iPad - has been previewed briefly ahead of its launch in the UK later this month, and we have to say the coverage leaves us in two minds about the 7-inch slate.  For a start, the capacitive touchscreen we've seen before was replaced by a resistive panel in the preproduction units tested (as by  Zol.com.cn) and Onliner.by aren't too keen on how the custom UI has been left more appropriate for either screen size or touch-technology.
