Motorola Testing a 7-Inch "Gingerbread" Tablet That's Rugged?

Labels: , , , , ,

Motorola looks like they're testing a new tablet that's unfortunately running just Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" if the picture above is anything to go by. Thankfully, the rest of the spec sheet is looking great so hopefully they'll upgrade the OS before the release. This unnamed tablet reportedly features a 7-inch LCD display, a dual-core 1GHz OMAP 4 CPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, an 8MP rear-facing camera, Bluetooth 2.1 / WiFi a/b/g/n support, and a USB port for good measure.

That's not all though because this one's apparently a rugged tablet and the battery life will be good enough for 5 and a half hours of video streaming. On the rugged side, this tablet will withstand a four foot drop, extreme temperatures / dust, and some water. Who knows when or if this tablet will hit the market.

Elitegroup's Elitepad S10 Windows 7 Tablet Hits the FCC

Labels: , , ,

It's definitely not the most desirable tablet that has hit the FCC but it's something fairly unique. The Elitepad S10 from Elitegoup has been spotted at the FCC after being spied out at CeBIT a few months ago. Beneath the 10-inch display you'll be getting an Intel Atom 1.5GHz Z670 CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 1.3MP webcam, WiFi / Bluetooth 3.0 support, an HDMI output, and Windows 7. Sadly, since it's running Microsoft's OS the battery is only good enough for a maximum of 6 hours. Check it out at the FCC.


HP Intros Elitebook 8460w, 8560w, and 8760w Business-Oriented Notebooks

Labels: , , , ,

HP has just unveiled three new Elitebook notebooks for the business-centric people out there. There's now new 14-inch 8460w, 15.6-inch 8560w, and 17.3-inch 8760w models and they'll cost you $1,299, $1,349, and $1,899, respectively. Of course, inside all of them you'll find Intel "Sandy Bridge" CPUs which shouldn't be surprising.

They're highly customizable so you'll be able to put just about whatever you want inside of them. Thankfully, there's no integrated Intel graphics options so you're stuck between AMD FirePro / Nvidia Quadro graphics, up to 4GB of RAM, and up to three HDDs if you need it. The largest model packs an Intel Core i7-2920XM CPU option if you need the speed. These will be available next month, May, but you can browse them now if you want. In order, you can check them out on HP here, here, and here.

Labels: , , , , ,

Digitimes is reporting that Acer has another tablet in the works and should be launching in late April or May. It's the 7-inch Iconia Tab A100 tablet which we've heard about before. Said tablet will sport a Tegra 2 CPU along with the Android "Honeycomb" OS which is pretty impressive considering it'll be priced lower than the A500 model. We've already seen a few prices for this tablet at €349 and £299 which isn't bad. This model is intended for the female demographic since it'll be easier for them to carry around.

Hannspree Has Another Tablet For This Quarter, A Sweeter One In Q3 With "Honeycomb"

Labels: , , , , , ,

Notebook Italia has just pointed out something great if you're willing to take a risk on your latest Android tablet. Hannspree reportedly has their SN10T1 tablet somewhere on the market in Europe going for €399 - even though the roadmap says that it's €349. This tablet packs a 10.1-inch display with a 1,024 x 600 resolution, a dual-core Tegra 2 CPU, 16GB of internal storage, WiFi / Bluetooth support, and sadly just Android 2.2. Another model, the SN10T2 is expected sometime this quarter with a TI chip, 8GB of internal storage, and a camera. That one should launch for €299, which is right around $430. A bit high considering the Asus Transformer. However, their best tablet could be coming in Q3.

Taking a look at the roadmap above, the company is working on an Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" tablet that will be launching in various markets sometime in Q3, later this year. This one will cleverly be called the SN10T3 and pack a 10.1-inch display with a 1,280 x 600 resolution, a Tegra 2 CPU, 16GB of storage, WiFi / Bluetooth support, and a camera. We don't know how responsive it'll be, but we'll find out in a few months when someone gets a hands-on. This one will reportedly launch for €449, which is just about $650.
