Sharp have been hard at work recently working on a number of Android powered devices including an Android smartphone and a couple of tablets too.

The two tablets are optimized for e-book style content and magazines, but are marketed as media-tablets because they allow users to play certain games and view PC documents too.

Amazon are stirring up quite a haze around their involvement with Android at the moment. Sure, the Amazon Kindle application for Android has been around for a while now, but we’ve recently learned Amazon might launch their own App Store for Android too. To become a developer for this Amazon App Store you have to pay a fee of $99 and Amazon will pay you a royalty equal to the greater of 70% of the purchase price or 20% of the List Price as of the purchase date. What is most interesting comes next… It has subsequently been alleged that…

Dell are rumored to release a 7-inch Android based tablet sometime in 2011, but in truth an exact date is about as firm as quicksand.The 5-inch screen of Dell’s Streak fills a niche screen-size but also offers an identity crisis; “am I a tablet?” However, this newer offering clearly fits in with the tablet crowd and Michael Dell revealed the device on stage for but a fraction of a moment before saying that, “of course, it’s nice to have a larger screen,” and then left it at that. This device is alleged to run Android, but the version is anyone’s…

At a special event in New York last night, Samsung announced that the Galaxy Tab will become available through all major carriers in the US. This is a significant feat mirroring the one recently achieved with the Samsung Galaxy smartphone range. Presumably, the deals were cut at the same time. So, the carriers include Sprint, AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile and may eventually cover some locals too. Also, Samsung’s Dale Sohn stated that the Tab should be available for the holiday season and furthermore, that there is a WiFi-only option on the way.

HP acquired Palm for $1.2 billion and all the good stuff that goes with that, and yet they still appear to have their eyes set firmly on an Android tablet. The HP Zeen C510 was apparently spotted in China with a fully customized version of the Android OS, that oddly allows no customization for the user (or so we’ve been led to believe). The new UI that HP have developed is called TouchSmart. Sure, it comes bundled with a few things like YouTube, Facebook and a Barnes & Noble recommendation widget, but the lack of control over the home-screen is…

The Sakshat tablet still appears to be on track to land in January 2011. The Indian government recently awarded the manufacturing contract to HCL, a massive electronics, computing and information technology company. This type of movement from the Indian government suggests that they are very serious about getting things going for January and apparently we can expect 1 million units for the first phase. This phase will include only the 7-inch version but in the future we can expect 5-inch and 9-inch too. For now, the 7-inch version will feature 2 GB RAM, WiFi connectivity, camera, USB port and the…
