By now you're probably familiar with this slate, seeing as how Google's Andy Rubin recently unveiled it on stage, but we're willing to bet you've never seen the top edge -- you know, the part now bearing a front-facing webcam and a conspicuous Verizon tattoo. Yes, this is Motorola's 10-inch Honeycomb tablet, and it's playing for Team Red just as foretold, though the tipster who obtained these images isn't sure whether it will bear the name Stingray, Everest or even potentially "Trygon." Spec-wise, we're told our previous tipster was right on the money, and it'll have a 1GHz Tegra 2 T20, a gyroscope and 32GB of storage underneath that 1280 x 800 multitouch screen, as well as 512MB of RAM and a slot for an up-to-32GB microSD card. It also sure looks like there's a micro-USB jack, a mini-HDMI port and a 3.5mm headphone socket, as well as some contacts for a likely dock, though as always Mr. Blurrycam's handiwork is such that we can't quite tell. No matter -- see for yourself in the gallery below.
Hmmmm. Some of the stills from Rubin's appearance at Dive Into Digital made it look very Windows-ish. Though, it may turn out the Honeycomb, Android 3.0, runs some kind of widgeting system on-screen. Since Google recently released their flashship phone, the Nexus S, I can only hope they will do the same with their Honeycomb tablet. Nexus T?
It's become obvious that Google doesn't approve of the Galaxy Tab in anyway and barely acknowledge its existence. Who knows if that tablet will be able to run Android 3.0. My guess is no and it will die a slow death. Sorry, early adopters!
The real benefit of these new tablets are their mobile opportunities for your small to mid-sized business. Out in Radnor but have a meeting in Bala Cynwyd? You can be able to video conference into the meeting using your tablet. Trigon can help you out with these Star Trekkian meetings, friend.
