SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: November 22 2010

Apple blast! There's a big fat update in store for all you iDevice owners, that being iOS 4.2 - if you've not already got it, just wait a little bit longer, according to most, this release will be available at around 10AM PST. Then, our little pal Android hits of catwalk in promotion of that sassy Giorgio Armani Samsung Galaxy S. Next, some radical columns for epic discussion: "Why my Nintendo Wii has been collecting dust" and "Why 2014 Will Not Be Like 1984" on the future of Apple's closed system and survival in the face of competing openness. Finally, just incase you missed it, our "Week with" review series of NOOKcolor started on Saturday night! First up, Hardware! All this and MORE on SlashGear Moring Wrap-up!

The Daily Slash: November 19 2010

It's a [FEATURED] fantasy today! We've got columns and special posts by the barrel-full, and you're gonna love em! First thing in the morning we got a pre-noon delivery from the FedEx truck - what did the FedEx man bring for us to unbox and get our hands on? A NOOKcolor, fresh off the factory line! Then we write a couple of columns: one on the raging state of the Tablets market, and one on the current quick-paced state of political news. Then Josh Marinacci says webOS will be available soon for ALL Palm devices, there's a White iPhone 4 sale in China, and the feature stream begins. Last night our man Vince was at PEPCOM and brought back video demos of Gorilla Glass, a three screen monitor from Samsung, and a NOOKcolor. Finally (there's more?!) the last installment of Evan's Week with the HTC HD7 is up - Xbox LIVE! All this and even MORE on The Daily Slash!

iPad 2 Up, Samsung Galaxy Tab Down & Tablets Out for the Count

iPad 2 Up, Samsung Galaxy Tab Down & Tablets Out for the Count

Tablets are the new rage. There's no denying that the tablet market has exploded since the release of Apple's iPad. Their tablet device managed to stir the entire market up, and now everyone is racing to get the best of the best into the customer's hands. Or, perhaps the point is just to sell as many as possible. Whatever the case may be, it seems to be working. The iPad is still selling like hot cakes, and it's already targeted as one of the most wanted devices for this holiday season. But, there are competitors, some of them pretty strong in their own right. And yet, as tablet sales are surely going to continue forward with strong figures, it seems that some analysts see some of the strongest competitors out there holding back on production, due to low sales. While there are other tablets being sold out within just a few hours. So, what's the deal?

SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: November 19 2010

Hooray! Mail came early today and we were given our Nook Color to grab and to open and to hold (aka unboxing and hands-on). Then we find out that the iPhone alone is worth more than almost every firm in the WORLD. Cox gives you money back for the minutes you don't use, and Google wipes away that StreetView data they were never supposed to have in the first place. Advent Vega offers up their budget Android tablet for sale and basically instantly sells out, and MySpace opens their doors to Facebook and signs the oncoming apocalypse.

Geeks get Ubuntu working on Samsung Galaxy Tab

Geeks get Ubuntu working on Samsung Galaxy Tab

You can always tell the geeks by the hardware and gadgets they use. Sure, your mom might get a Galaxy Tab, but will her Tab be running something as geeky as Ubuntu? I think not. If you are the sort of geek that lives to add alternative OS's to hardware it wasn't meant to run on, we have a project for you.

Samsung Orion tablet gets previewed ahead of presumed 2011 debut

Samsung's next-gen tablet platform apparently made a preview appearance at the ARM Technical Symposium 2010 in Taipei this week, confirming for the first time that the company intends to use its dual-core Orion processor in larger-screen slates. The prototype - which DigiTimes refers to as Orion, which as far as we're aware is actually the chipset itself - also has a quad-core ARM Mali-400-based GPU capable of encode and decode of Full HD 1080p with an HDMI 1.3a output that can be concurrently run while the Cortex A9 chip simultaneously drives two onboard displays.

We've got reviews and columns up the wazoo today! First there's the Nokia C7, a Kingston 32GB MicroSDHC Class 4 memory card, the HTC 7 Trophy, and finally the Samsung Continuum - reviewed by yours truly. Then there was some huge controversy this morning when Steve Wozniak said that Android would someday defeat iPhone! But it turned out to be blown out of proportion by the end of the day, Steve himself stopping the rumor cold. Finally, Google is tabulated to be on the lookout for over 2,000 new hires and more than likely offered to buy Twitter for FOUR. BILLION. DOLLARS. All this and MORE on The Daily Slash!
