Which Honeycomb Tablet is the Best?

"The Android Tablet Battalion has finally arrived. In the span of just three days, the number of Honeycomb tablets has ballooned from one to four. In addition to competitive pricing (read: cheaper than the iPad 2), they provide a whole host of special features including full SD card readers, 3D, full USB, stereo speakers, full HDMI, HSPA+, and even a full keyboard."

The Android tablet onslaught has begun. There are now four Honeycomb running tablets available. The Xoom, G-Slate, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, and the Acer Iconia Tab A500. They're offering some new features like 3D video recording and playback as well as an attachable keyboard with an extra battery. Besides new features, there are lower prices, going as low as $400 for the Transformer. Are any of these tablet's just what you've been waiting for? Follow the "Read" link below and see which one and what features are your favorites then let us know! Do you think the new low prices and features will affect sales of the iPad 2? Check out this link for some thoughts on that.

Dual-screen Battle Royale: Acer Iconia vs. Toshiba Libretto

"Here in New York at Acer's Global press event, the company's talking touch. Lots and lots of touch. It'll be introducing a veritable smorgasbord of equipment as the minutes roll on, but it's kicking things off with its Windows 7-based Iconia dual-screen laptop / tablet, a device we've seen before."

In the battle to remain relevant to perhaps more technically astute computer buyers (and perhaps to entice said buyers away from tablets), we have another laptop with two screens and a virtual multi-touch keyboard. Specifications are impressive, with Windows 64-bit Premium, Intel Core i5 processor, up to 4GB DDR3 RAM, two 14-inch LED-backlit multitouch LCD displays at 1366x768 protected by Gorilla®Glass, integrated Intel HD graphics, 320GB or larger hard drive, integrated 3G WWAN, one USB 3.0 port, and a 4-cell battery. Total weight is 6.18 pounds. This dual-screen concept is very interesting, and if the software can keep up with the hardware, this concept may prove to be very attractive. No details were provided on price or availability.
