Labels: , , , , , , ,

MSI has just unveiled a tablet that we've all seen before and it's the WindPad 100A. This tablet will be launching with Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" which is different from when we heard the tablet would be launching with Android 2.2. The price hasn't been mentioned yet and it'll be packing a dual-core Tegra 2 CPU. Sadly, the model that was on display at CeBIT is running just Android 2.X so maybe we'll see a new model on display at a later date.

Apple's Tim Cook Hints At a Prepaid iPhone, Adds Fuel To the Fire Of Rumours

Labels: , , ,

The WSJ and Forbes has just mentioned some pretty good news. Remember the news about a smaller iPhone that would be hitting the prepaid market for $199? Well, Tim Cook from Apple might have just hinted at it when he talked to Bernstein Research analyst, Toni Sacconaghi. Cook mentioned that "Apple didn't want its products to be 'just for the rich,' but 'for everyone'; he also stated that Apple 'understood price is big factor in the prepaid market' and that the company was 'not ceding any market.'" Basically, Apple could be working on that prepaid iPhone that a bunch of tweens may be looking for.

Motorola's CEO Hints At a 7-Inch Tablet, Expects Price Drops For Tablets In H2

Labels: , , , , ,

Motorola's CEO, Sanjay Jha, didn't say much today but he did hint that they could be set to launch a 7-inch tablet in the future. He mentioned that the form factor is more "fun" and "portable" and that the 10.1-inch XOOM is more for professional use. So far, he mentioned that sales for the XOOM are going "relatively well", which doesn't exactly sound very positive. The CEO also said that he expects prices for tablets to drop in the second half of the year which is still pretty far away. Either way, we're looking forward to what else the company has up their sleeves.
