It was inevitable that the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in early 2011 would have a fair share of Android-primarily based tablet devices on show. We look at some of the Android devices that will extremely likely be heading our way this year.
Most of the devices right here will run Honeycomb, Android's three. release, which has currently been earmarked as being specifically made for tablet PCs.
Motorola put in its comeback bid with the XOOM tablet. After a mobile powerhouse, Motorola is pinning its hopes of a return on Android and its 10.1-inch screened XOOM is the company's 1st big move. Under the screen the XOOM will run a 1Ghz dual-core processor and include constructed-in 3G assistance. 4G LTE assistance is also an choice for networks with that capability. The widescreen XOOM will also pack in a five megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video and 32GB of on-board storage.
A tablet Computer from Asus has been lengthy predicted. The Taiwan-based Computer maker is credited with kicking off the netbook industry a couple of years ago and has been functioning on a stick to-up to its EEE Computer for many months. At CES, Asus showed off the EEE Pad Slider and the Transformer tablets. Both of these are slightly various to several of the tablet PCs on the market place in that they include a physical keyboard. As the name suggests, the QWERTY keyboard slides out from below the Slider version whilst the Transformer contains a dock and external keyboard and touch pad. Both will also be built around Nvidia's Tegra two dual-core processor.
Toshiba also has an Android tablet Pc in its future. Toshiba's tablet will sport a ten.1-inch screen and, like the Asus tablets, will be primarily based on Nvidia's Tegra two processor. The tablet will run Android 3. (Honeycomb) when it is at some point released.
Acer was fairly fast to jump on the netbook wagon with its Aspire, but they have been reasonably slow in releasing a range of tablet devices. At CES Acer showed off its Iconia Tab A500 tablet which sports a ten.1-inch screen. Numerous USB (complete-size and micro) ports are to be incorporated as is a docking connector.
The One particular Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project has long been active in the ultra-portable Computer industry, albeit rather controversially. Now Marvel Technologies, the makers of the XO hardware, has confirmed that an Android-primarily based OLPC tablet is close to being released. The XO-three, as the tablet will be known, will sport an ARM processor, the Armada 610, which will reportedly reduce energy consumption to just 1W.
