by: Bams SadewoApril 3, 2012

Another month, another set of statistics revealed by Google for us to ogle and scrutinize. So, which Android platform is ruling the universe, and which is heading straight to the black hole? Here’s a spoiler, there’s really no significant shake-up from last month. Let’s work our way down from the top and analyze the Android platform distribution chart among Android devices owners that have accessed Google Play for the 2-week period ending April 2, 2012.

Beta ICS ROM Comes to the Viewsonic G-Tablet

by: LucianFebruary 7, 2012

The G-Tablet was one of very first Tegra 2 tablets, long before the Motorola Xoom appeared. Unfortunately this also meant that it came with an un-optimized version of Android for tablets. To make matters worse, Google didn’t open source Android 3.0 or Honeycomb, so it wasn’t available for the G-tablet, because only a few manufacturers had early access to it.

Others have tried putting custom versions of Honeycomb on it, but it kept being limited by the performance and bugs of Honeycomb, plus the fact that Honeycomb wasn’t fully open source. The G-Tablet was a decent tablet for its price, so it couldn’t just be forgotten by passionate [...]

by: Christine TorralbaDecember 24, 2011

If you’re still scrambling for some last minute shopping, you may want to rush off to the nearest Archos retailer. Last Tuesday, the company announced that they will be putting their Google Android Honeycomb tablet 70b at a suggested price of only $199. This is the very first Honeycomb tablet being sold at a price less than the typical $200 mark. Moreover, other tablets that are priced below this margin still carry the earlier versions of Android.

Even with this price for a Honeycomb tablet, it may be hard for Archos to see their sales improving. Considering that these devices had a poor report this year, users may want to find something more powerful. One of the [...]
