"One of the hottest trends in the wireless sector is tablets, as
all the major players -- Research In Motion, Samsung, HP, Acer and
so on -- are either already selling or planning to offer their
respective answer to Apple's iPad. While RIM recently made a big
splash with the impressive BlackBerry PlayBook, running a new
QNX-based mobile operating system dubbed BlackBerry Tablet OS, and
HP just unveiled the Slate 500 running Windows 7, it's really
Android-powered devices that are generating the most buzz. Here we
update the specs, carriers, pricing and release dates of the new
crop of Android tablets.
"Acer's Android tablet coming Nov. 23
The Taiwan-based PC maker is planning to unveil an Android tablet
at a media event in New York City on Nov. 23, according to the Wall
Street Journal, which published an interview with the Acer CEO
conducted after an earnings conference. No details have been
disclosed, but it's widely expected that the company will offer
three sizes -- a 5-inch, 7-inch and 10-inch -- ranging in price
from $299 to $699.
"Samsung Galaxy Tab by Samsung
The Korean electronics giant scored a major coupe by signing up all
four major wireless carriers in the U.S. to offer the Samsung
Galaxy Tab, the first Android tablet to be considered a major
challenger to the iPad."
