Though no official Ice Cream Sandwich update has emerged for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi + 3G GT-P7500, a new Honeycomb update has arrived. XWKL1 is the latest leaked Android 3.2 Honeycomb firmware and comes rooted already. This update should tide us all over until Ice Cream Sandwich finally lands.
This update is only for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 GT-P7500 (Wi-Fi + 3G). You can find your device’s model number through Settings > About Tablet. If your tablet is not a Galaxy Tab 10.1 P7500, we highly discourage from attempting to flash this update as it may lead to bricking.RequirementsSamsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 GT-P7500 A Windows PC Flashing this [...]
If you currently own an Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet and your gadget is not on the list of devices to be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich anytime soon or you just can’t wait anymore to get a taste of ICS, you can now pretend for a couple of minutes or so that you have an Android 4.0 slate on your hands.
The latest Gmail app update, released by Google on Wednesday, brings ICS-like functionality to Android 3.2 tablets. Or at least that’s what Google is claiming, because, in reality, the differences between the old and the new Gmail app are far from being dramatic in any way.
Sure, it will probably be nice for you to be able to set custom notifications for individual [...]
One of my favorite Android manufacturers, HTC said about a month ago that the HTC Flyer would be getting a Honeycomb update and late last night, early this morning they made good on that promise. All of us with the wifi-only version of the HTC Flyer can now download the Honeycomb update and start experiencing the greatness of Honeycomb.
With the update you’ll get Android 3.2, speed improvements, wallpaper lag is gone, and other goodies that come with Honeycomb. We’ve heard from many people on Twitter that the update makes their Flyer feel like it’s brand new. With it being more smooth then ever, and little to no lag on other features.
Now the [...]
It seems the Asus Transformer Prime was delayed by at least a month compared to the initial reports that it will be launched on December 9th, then pushed to 19th, and now, at least in UK it was announced that it’s going to be launched on January 12th.
This is quite a delay, and we don’t really know what’s been causing this. When I first heard the Asus CEO that Android 4.0 could launch even by the end of 2011 on Asus Transformer Prime, I immediately thought it would’ve been a better idea to wait until it actually gets Android 4.0 instead of launching it with Android 3.2, get all the reviews like that, and then update it to Android [...]
The Asus Transformer Prime is by far the most hotly anticipated tablet this holiday season, and while it remains to be seen if it will have Android 4.0 on time for Christmas, it should still be highly impressive, especially from a hardware point of view. As you’ll see in the video below, both the tablet part and the keyboard look extremely thin but also durable, thanks to the full aluminum body and the Gorilla Glass screen.
While the HD IPS display and the shape and feel of the device itself will impress you at a first look, what’s inside also impresses as well. the Asus Transformer Prime will be the first tablet with a quad core processor, which should [...]
Motorola Xoom was supposed to be the tablet that should’ve jumpstarted the momentum for Honeycomb, but it didn’t and in fact it may have even hurt it, because of the very high price ($800) and the availability of only the 3G (more expensive) version at launch. Now, Motorola seems to want to fix their mistake with not one, but 2 Motorola Xoom 2 tablets. But will they actually do it?
The first Xoom 2 tablet is a 10.1″ one, just like the first Xoom, is 9 mm thick, has 1 GB of faster RAM, records 1080p video, and has a battery life of 11 hours, compared to the original Xoom’s 10 hours. That’s with a dual core 1.2 Ghz processor, that’s [...]
It’s no secret that Android tablets need a lot of catching up to get ahead of the game. I’m going to expand on a few points from this article and talk about where slates can do better to become better accepted by consumers.1. Make them talk better with peripherals
One thing that makes notebooks and netbooks a preferred choice by the regular consumer is that most of the stuff they already have–speakers, keyboards, external drives–already work with that device. With tablets, it’s a bit more tricky since you often need to buy additional cables and adapters like the one above, or even have to get an extra app in the off-chance that you do get peripherals [...]
