Galaxy Tab 10.1v Getting Official Updates (Finally)

tweet

As it is always the case in the world of technology, early adopters of most devices and brands are usually among the first to start complaining about things. This is particularly true when it comes to updates to their investments. However, most of these complaints are well founded due to them being about things that end up resulting in poor performance and overall bugginess. A very specific case for this is the Galaxy Tab 10.1v, which is the European version of the acclaimed Galaxy Tab, running under Vodaphone. As it is customary with updates, carrier and manufacturer pointed fingers at each other when people complained about not getting updates to take the tab from 3.0.1 to anything that wasn’t re. . .

Acer Iconia Tab A100 Forums Added

logo

Acer keeps on making its way into the hands of people by trying to release newer models with different characteristics of their up and coming Iconia tab series. The A100 made its debut not too long ago, and it seems to be a more economical version of its bigger brother. The tab sports a 7 inch screen as opposed to the 10.1 inch that its big brother has. It also carries a Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB or RAM, Honeycomb 3.2, and it comes in 8 GB and 16 GB versions, which is unusual to see in a tab. Other than that, the specs are pretty much up to par with other tabs of its kind. However, it is worth mentioning that there are not too many tabs at 7 inch that are loaded with 3.2, so this is a bit of a breakthrough in a market where the smaller sized t. . . READ ON »

XDA forum member GameGod72 is an avid user of the Aldiko eBook reader app and recently got himself a tablet. The dev wanted to be able to read his books on both his phone and tablet but could not find anything, and decided to do something about it himself!

ASUS Transformer Boasts a 500Gb Hard Drive

IMG_20110902_144838 (Small)

A thing of fairytale, the idea of 500Gb storage on a tablet. Especially on any device we own, it’s something no one has seen or heard of, only complained about.

The ASUS Transformer, for me, really is the peak of progression. It was the product we, in the technology community, had been waiting for for a very long time, and didn’t expect to see it rising over the horizon. The Transformer as a whole is comparable to a Macbook Air or a netbook, because of its design, being the same size and featuring the same functionality. The tablet itself is comparable to the iPad 2, with its aluminium design, mobile operating system, and camera’s, front and back. There is an element of functionality which sur. . . READ ON »

Lenovo Thinkpad Dump Available

lenovo-thinkpad-tablet

Every time a new device comes out, we tend to either want to get it or what is included with it. Since most of us are cash strapped and cannot spend $400 – $700 dollars per device each time one comes out, we are only left with the option of trying to get what we currently have to look and behave in the same way as the original thing. For this purpose, you normally will need dumps of systems such as the one that surfaced in the Acer Iconia A500 forums for the Lenovo Thinkpad. XDA member triebstahl has posted a link to the dump in the hopes that someone would grab it and strip it of all the goodies that Lenovo packed on the upcoming tab. Whether a whole port will be required to get the UI going on other devices or not is still not . . . READ ON »

Connect To The Web With Your Transformer Via An Ethernet Cable

At this point, if you read the title of this article, you are probably be thinking “what?”. We all know and love the ability of our devices to be able to connect to the net regardless of where we are thanks to the power of Wifi and 3G/4G. However, when you are comfortably sitting at home or at the office and you have a router close by, why do you have to suffer from a slow (when compared to wired) internet connection? As you probably know, the latter devices such as tabs and certain Android phones come with USB host support, which allow you to attach a wide variety of devices to your gadget such as mice, keyboards, hard drives, etc. To take this one step further, XDA member Quiethinker posted a driver pack fo. . .

Sony S Tablet Forums Added

logo

It looks like the rumors were indeed true and Sony decided to make their late, yet expected appearance in the wonderful and incredibly competitive world of tablets. The Sony S is a nice and sleek tab with pretty much the same features as most Honeycomb equipped tablets. The main difference is actually the ergonomic design of the body, which is supposed to give you a better feel and grip on your tab. As an added bonus, it seems that Sony added their own flavor of software to boost your experience with this.

The tab is now available, so if you have taken the plunge and got one already, please share your experiences and any tips you may have for others.

You can visit the Sony S Table home on XDA here.

Add Some 3G And 4G To Your Iconia A500 Tab

iconia modem

As you are probably aware, there are a few mods for a couple of tabs sporting Honeycomb that will allow you to attach a usb dongle for 3G capabilities on non 3G tabs. Well, it seems that XDA member nateleduc has decided that a tab with a tail does not look all that great. After taking his Acer Icons A500 apart, he found an empty space with mount screw holes and solder points in the mother board. Essentially, this is the slot where the modem would fit, and after looking around for a bit, he figured it would be perfectly possible to adapt it to his A500 effectively turning it into an A501, which is 3G enabled.

However, he has some questions regarding delivery adaptability on HC as well as the best possible card bracket to hold . . . READ ON »

How To Install A Honeycomb ROM On HTC Flyer 32Gb

flyerhc3

This week has started off rather busy in terms of news for being labour day. And now we have a how-to guide by XDA member globatron, who informed us about this complete guide for installing Android Honeycomb on the HTC Flyer.

According to the source, this guide has only been tested on a Euro WWE 32GB 3G Flyer, but it may work on other configurations as well. The ROM is completely stock and if you have all the necessary files, you can revert back to Gingerbread if needed. Please be sure to know how to proceed before starting as this may damage your device.

Please let us know about your experience with Honeycomb on your Flyer.
