11 Apr

If you get on T-Mobile’s site to try and order a G-Slate electronic gadgets, you’ll end up staring at a big coming soon sign. But on eBay it’s a different story. The 8.9-inch Honeycomb tablet isn’t expected to launch for another two weeks but one eBay user is claiming the G-Slate is on hand and ready to ship.

Starting bid is currently at $800, but if you have to have it, buy it now is set at $1200. Is it worth it? Well, when it does come out it’s going to cost $529 with a 2-year contract and after mail-in rebate. Suddenly $800 doesn’t look too bad to be contract-free electronic gadgets.

Ainol tablet sports IPS display

28 Mar


Ainol of China has been spotted to run the Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system, not to mention having a Cortex-A9 processor inside that ought to make sure it wont’ fall short of any processing firepower if the need arises. The design itself is average at best, considering the amount of (or rather, lack of) talent in that part of the world to come up with truly inspiring designs for others to follow. Well, it is OK by their standards, and we’re stoked to know that the display will be of the IPS (In Plane Switching) variety at 1280 x 800 resolution. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, 3G and HDMI, with a front-facing camera serving you for your video call needs, coupled with a microSD memory card slot and a headphone jack. No idea on pricing as at press for these electronic gadgets time though.

Let The Honeyclones Begin: The Pioneer DreamBook ePad H10 HD

15 Mar

Right off the bat, let’s just make something clear: this isn’t from Pioneer, makers of quality audio devies. No, this is a tablet by Pioneer Computers, a major Australian laptop maker that makes a whole line of Android tablets — but this ePad H10 HD (catchy) is their first Honeycomb device.

It costs $700 (Australian) naked and is actually quite competitively specced: Tegra II 120 (it’s what’s in many upcoming Honeycomb tablets), a gig of RAM, a 10.1″ 1280×800 capacitive screen, dual cameras (5 and 2 megapixels), 16-64GB SSD, GPS, 3G, and yes, it ships with Honeycomb.

Those are really almost exactly the specs we see on the Xoom and Galaxy Tab 10.1. Why should you choose these electronic gadgets over this? Well, they’re probably built better, and you might get a better return policy (big company, new device), but really, there’s not much difference. And at 760g and 12mm thick, it’s not like it’s that chubby either.

They’re shipping in April (supposedly), but don’t blame me if it gets lost in the post between Australia and wherever you live. If you’re looking for an “off-brand” Android tablet, wait a couple months and there will be a hot dozen to choose from. The price will go down, too; even the clones can’t beat the iPad on price right now, hardware differences aside.
