Best Buy to unveil Android tablet soon

The iPad is selling like hot cakes, but the only one profiting from the impressive sales of the device are Apple. Well, Best Buy has its own in-house “Rocketfish” brand.

The Apple iPad may continue to be the dominant tablet on the market today, but it may not be the most powerful.

acer-stream-android

The latest manufacturer to join forces with Google’s Android OS is Acer and their newest smartphone, the Stream. Unlike so many of its counterparts, its exclusivity isn’t with a specific carrier; it’s with a store. I thought this was a bit of an odd move, but it seems that online store Expansys UK will be the only place you can buy the Acer Stream Android phone when it launches on August 9th.

Specs leaked for Samsung Galaxy Q Android smartphone

samsung-q-200

It’s still a rumored device for now, but this Android 2.2 phone sounds like it could seriously be a hot one. For starters, you get a 3.0-inch Super AMOLED multi-touch display to go with the full QWERTY keyboard and optical touchpad. Some people are saying that this lends itself to a slider, but a BlackBerry-esque bar phone could very well be possible too. Remember the Samsung Epix? Maybe like that, but so much newer and nicer.

india-35-tablet-200

Yesterday we saw the announcement of a $500 tablet coming from India called the Olivepad. Today we have another tablet, this time a prototype also coming from India and is priced at a ridiculous $35. Apparently the price could go to as low as $20 or $10. It will even have green features, like the option to be recharged by solar cells. The OS will be Linux-based, however Android is one of the possibilities. Open Office will be included, a media player, and a host of other free apps.

Google sells out of Nexus One smartphones

google-nexus-one-soldout

Google has shut down their web store and stopped the sale of their Nexus One Android phone. They ordered one last batch of from HTC, and now that supply has been depleted. That’s right. Google has completely sold out of the Nexus One. We knew that this was going to be the last batch to be made directly available from Google, but we didn’t know that interest in the Nexus One would be quite this high. They sold out awfully fast, especially for a handset that isn’t exactly new anymore.

It’s clear that the Apple iPad is currently dominating the tablet market, but a number of new competitors will soon be entering that realm. I think one of the major keys to success is a properly designed mobile OS, so it’s good to see that Asus is making the switch from Windows to Android for its EeePad.

Sprint push-to-talk Motorola i1 Android phone coming Sunday

Motorola i1 headed for Sprint

There are a few reasons why this phone is rather important. First, it’s enterprise-minded with its military-grade rugged resistance to dust, shock, vibration, and rain. However, unlike so many other rugged numbers, the Motorola i1 runs on Android 1.5. Tapping out the software suite are the avaialble business tracking and job workflow applications, as well as the “tough” touchscreen for use in the toughest of work environments. Other specs include Bluetooth 2.0, 3.1″ HVGA display, WiFi, 5MP camera, and Nextel Direct Connect.
