Updated, April 5th, 2011: Comprehensive Spreadsheets Below The tablet space is heating up in a big way. At CES, we witnessed the unveiling of over 70 different tablets. Mobile World Congress demonstrated that Manufacturers, like HTC, Samsung and LG, all of whom have significant clout in the marketplace, are putting their money where their mouth is too, and we now have some serious Xoom contenders. We have compiled a list of the best Android Tablets in 2011. Most of these won’t be available for a few months, but we wanted to ignite your techno lust prematurely so you know where…

Engadget have posted a number of blurry cam photos of a new Motorola Android tablet that appears to be landing with Verizon. This device is set to have a 1GHz Tegra 2 T20, along with a 32GB of storage and up-to-32GB microSD card. It also packs a 1280 x 800 multitouch screen and a gyroscope. Things are aptly finished off with 512MB of RAM and it appears as though we might even see a micro-USB port, a mini-HDMI port and a 3.5mm headphone socket. Of course, this device is set to offer Android Honeycomb and is alleged to be the…

Galapagos Android tablets from Sharp priced and dated for Japan

Sharp’s Galapagos Android tablets look quite swish if you ask us. There are two types, the 5.5-inch and 10.8-inch versions. Both are set to land in Japan on December 10th and pre-orders will be accepted a week beforehand, on December 3rd. There are two pieces of bad news to accompany this information. First, we still have no clue or word as to whether or not this device is going to land in Europe or America any time soon. We can only assume that as the Japanese release date approaches, that a worldwide one does too. Unfortunately, the second piece of…

Shenzhen HuaRuiAn Technology Co., Ltd have recently developed a rather bland looking 7-inch 800 x 480 Android tablet. The general idea is that this tablet will be re-branded for an international release. HuaRuiAn Technology Co., Ltd consider themselves a leader in the manufacturing of Portable DVD Players and Digital Video Cameras. I guess it makes sense, then, that tablet computers are within their realm. The company has a history of exporting to America, Europe, Southeast Asia and Africa. I am no convinced that this is the most fashionable of tablets, but it does include 32GB of internal storage, Wi-Fi, microSD…

Today in New York City, Acer held a press event for a range of devices they plan to release in the near future and into next year. There are a couple of interesting tablets to mention, the first of which is a 10.1-inch Android tablet based on a 1GHz processor with Flash 10.1. From studying the picture, it does not appear as though this device is running Google’s ‘tablet friendly’ version of Android yet. Nonetheless, the device will include HDMI output (720p), 1280 x 800 resolution, Acer UI 4.5 and a 5MP rear-facing camera. According to this slide here, there…

This one is flying low, under most radars, but its a consideration for the budget conscious UK christmas shopper. StorIT Group own CMS Peripherals, who have spun out Disgo. It is this hereditary relationship which has given rise to the Disgo 6000, a 7-inch 800 x 480 Android 2.1 tablet available for only £180.00 ($290.00). So, where is the catch? Unfortunately, while the device sports a 1GHz iMAPx200 processor and HDMI connectivity, there are quite a few. For example, this tablet does not offer the Android Market, nor does it have a multi-touch screen. It wont auto sense when you…

NEC LifeTouch ‘cloud communicator’

The tablet was not exactly the most vivacious of devices when announced earlier in the year. However, this newer version has shed a few buttons and will make use of cloud computing to get its jobs done. If I’m precise, NEC’s LifeTouch makes use of the phrase “cloud communicator”. It has not been made clear exactly what benefits this affords the device, other than an intriguing marketing avenue. Apparenlty the “cloud communicator” is especially well suited for corporate customers. In which case they should make it black. Anyway, we can still expect a 7-inch Retina Touch Panel upon which a…

OLED-Display have snapped the first shots of the super OLED 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab. Its tasty. Apparently it offers 169 ppi with 16.7 M colors,250 cd/m² free viewing angels and >100% NTSC color space. There is a video after the jump where you can jump to 55-seconds to see the Galaxy Tab in action. It should be noted that the actual unit in the video could just be a regular AMOLED display, but there is strong evidence to suggest a Super AMOLED is coming anyway. One thing is for sure though, it will run Android. Other treats include a folding…

I have never heard of PocketBook USA, and cursory internet search combined with a wiki trawl does not really reveal much. Regardless, the company/organization is set to release two new Android based tablets for fairly attractive price points. We have the PocketBook IQ 701 tablet and the 602 eReader. The PocketBook IQ 701 tablet offers Android 2.0 and provides a 7-inch TFT screen with a 533MHz CPU. The 602 eReader provides a 6-inch E-ink display with 16 shades of gray. Both offer Wi-Fi and are fairly good value for money so long as the price points hold. Indeed, the IQ…

Unfortunately this news item is a little cryptic. LG are rumored to release a high-end tablet device offering superior performance, but remaining lighter and thinner providing many “firsts” when compared to its competitors. However, this all but seemed official until LG refused to comment on the news and also removed twitter posts. The device itself is set to offer Honeycomb, the “tablet PC-version” of the Android OS. Furthermore, it will offer a 8.9-inch display and will be called the LG Pad. We’re excited to hear that this will land in the first quarter of 2011, even though this probably means…
