The specs have been flowing around for a bit for now of the Motorola’s 10 inch Android tablet that would run the biggest version of android, the Honeycomb, whose which this tablet is indeed a flagship device, much like what Nexus S was for Gingerbread. It’s not hard to notice the Verizon markup at the top right corner telling us that the tablet is indeed Verizon Wireless bound, but yes, didn’t we already know that fact. The leak, apart from bringing a few more blurry shots, also points out some of the specs of the tablet which might be called Stingray or Everest or in distant guess, Trygon, maybe because it boasts of nVidia’s Tegra processor. Which one is your fav?
As for the specs, it seems very much assured that this will be really boasting the 1 Ghz dual-core Tegra 2 processor powering the 10 inch screen capable of producing a divine 1280 x 800 resolution display, and running what is supposed to be game-changing version of android, the 3.0, aka Honeycomb. That apart, expect the main camera at rear capable of 5 MP shooting experience with a VGA camera on the front (near the logo) for video calling and all that. In case you were looking for it, the mini-HDMI port is there as also support for up-to 32 GB microSD card storage, 3.5 mm headphone jack and the micro0USB port.
What we still don’t know about the Motorola’s tablet is the lengths and breadths and in particular the weight of the tablet. The weight is what is hated most about the iPad and it’s really what makes the Samsung 7 incher Galaxy Tab a score above iPad, so we would expect a feather tech from Motorola here. Device size: lengths, breadth and thickness will be a tell-tale sign of weight and portability factor but it will surely be a hard job with dual-core processor inside. Right?
Well, the spec sheet surely makes you drool over unless you know you can’t keep letting water flow outta your mouth, given the magnitude of android stuff happening in (early) 2011 that’s gonna tear your tech beliefs. Yep! we are talking about the LG Star and Motorola Olympus, both powered by the same 1 Ghz dual-core Tegra 2 processor and, Samsung’s Galaxy 2/Stealth/etc. Oh, and let’s not forget Sony Ericsson’s good work in SE Zeus Z1 / PlayStation phone and Anju/X12. On the software part, Honeycomb itself will be revolutionary and should re-brand android’s perception in your mind. There was a reason why Google demonstrated the android’s next iteration a little bit in the same breadth they announced Gingerbread. Maybe, it meant the end of road of android 2.x versions signaling a leapfrog desired for android 3.x. Nice enough!
So, what do you think holds for us in the year 2011, early or later part? And where does it leaves your desire of Nexus S? Oh yes, Motorola’s also working on a 7 inch tablet, we hope Mr. Blurrycam will gratify us with that one too!
