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 [...]

We should see a surplus of devices in 2011 which have multi-core processors and this can only be a great thing for consumers.

Here is a brief video I shot at an LG event just outside the Mobile World Congress fairgrounds last week. The GT540 was announced at CES in January, and comes in a number of different colors – including pink. It runs the Android 2.0 OS, features a 3.5mm headphone jack, and sports an autofocus 3 megapixel camera.
The Inbrics MID-M1 was announced back in November but only a few scarce details were able to be gleaned from the machine translated Korean press release. The MID-M1 was slated for CES 2010 and now that the trade show is upon us, full details on this interesting tablet have emerged. The MID-M1 will feature everything but the kitchen sink including:3.7-inch, 800×480 AMOLED touch screen slider form factor with QWERTY keyboard 833 MHz Cortex A-8 processor 720P playback with Xvid and DivX support Android marketplace support GPS connectivity via 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G or WiMAX 3 megapixel camera on the back, VGA camera on the front 16GB of internal storage with microSD [...]
The folks at the Boy Genius Report have posted what appears to be a screen capture of a Sprint computer system that lists the LG LS680, which it describes as an Android phone.
I’m already planning to attend the LG and Sprint events at CES in Las Vegas early next month, so here’s hoping that this new LG LS680 is one of the things they plan to unveil.
Dell’s Android tablet, previously revealed as the Streak, may be formally introduced in January at CES 2010. The Streak features a 5 inch, 800×480 touchscreen, a 5MP camera with dual LED flash, Android 2.0, and a bunch of other goodies including WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity. The Streak is rumored to be launching in the UK sometime in early 2010. Considering that the source of the rumor is based in the UK, only UK information is revealed. Hopefully, Dell has similar launch plans for the US. Any US-based insider care to confirm or deny the Streak’s imminent launch here in the States?
Ultra-low cost phone manufacturer Hop-on today announced that it plans to unveil a new Android powered device at the 2009 CES show in Las Vegas this coming January.
Hop-on is probably best know for its disposable cell phones.
Hop-on’s CEO, Peter Michaels, was quoted in the announcement as stating:
“Hop-on is committed in bringing the latest technology to the market, the Android open platform makes Hop-on competitive in the high end mobile phone market. This will create market value for our shareholders.”
No details about the device have been revealed so far. The 2009 CES show runs from January 8th through the 11th.
