Acer 7inch Android Tablet Hands-on

The folks over at intomobile got a chance to give us a great look at the new Android 2.3 Acer 7 inch tablet, and it actually looks pretty slick! Specifications are impressive as well as it punches with a 1.2GHz Snapdragon dual-core processor, HDMI-out, 1280×800 WXGA resolution, Adobe Flash 10.1 support, and Android 2.3.

The body itself is sleek in design, with a rounded back, sturdy framing and squared front panel. Too bad the outer edge wasn’t actually aluminum instead of plastic made to look like metal. It’s got a single Home button on the front as well, maybe taking a return stab at the iPad. The tablet also has front and rear cameras, the rear with a LED flash.

We’ll likely see more of this at the MWC conference in February.

Motorola Droid Bionic gets benchmarked, shows impressive numbers


At CES 2011, talkandroid was there and got to play with the impressive Motorola Droid Bionic. It is a sweet little device, as you can tell in our Hands-On video here. To add to it’s awesomeness, some others got to run some benchmarks on it, and not surprisingly, it put up some kick butt numbers in comparison to other “top devices” currently on the market as you can see below.


There’s many tools out there to benchmark an Android device, but Quadrant seems to be the favorite, scoring the Droid Bionic 2284 putting it well above other previously released Android smartphones.
Check the full test video from CES below.

Another look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab

The guys over at slashgear have gotten another look at the newly announced Samsung Galaxy Tab, and they’re still just as impressed as they were the first time around. According to the article:

“It’s well-sized for the hand, and, unlike the iPad, you can actually slot it into an inside jacket pocket without tearing the seams.  Side by side with the Galaxy S, and the Tab’s LCD panel does a decent job holding its own against Super AMOLED.”

They go on to state quite a bit more about the device, going in-depth into the media capabilities, software, and comparisons to other Samsung devices (and others).
