XDA to Have Android Tablet Development
Later this year, a variety of OEMs are going to release Android tablets. These tablets have a lot of fantastic development potential thanks to their large, high-resolution screens, plentiful amounts of RAM, and fast CPUs. A lot of them even have cellular radios inside for getting wireless data on the go.
Yesterday we sent out a tweet asking if XDA should be home to Android tablet development. The results were pretty clear, with most people supporting the action.
Today we’re happy to announce the first Android tablet addition to the XDA forums for the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The Tab is a 7″ Android 2.2 slate that has dual cameras, A-GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, HSUPA, plus a nice-sized 4000mAh battery. It’s quite slim at around 12mm. The Tab goes on sale in Europe later this month, and will hit the USA by the end of the year. Ready to discuss it? Jump to the Galaxy Tab General forum!
P.S. For those of you wondering if adding tablets to XDA will make the site slower, the answer is “no”…we have enough server capacity to add additional forums. Rest assured that if the organization or speed of XDA is in any way compromised by adding tablets, we’ll make the proper adjustments.

So far, it is clear that Project Fi users can have their Google Voice number transferred across if they wish, which will automatically move their Google Voice credit over as well. What we have learned so far is that after a Voice number is transferred you will lose some functionality, but you will...
We have covered a lot of Android Accessories here on XDA TV. Mostly because we realize that there are not many phones out there designed specifically with us in mind. So we get powerful phones that don’t have the best speakers or batteries. To resolve this issue we can grab an accessory to fill the gap. In this episode of XDA TV, Producer Jordan reviews the Vinsic 20,000mAh Ultra Slim Power Bank. This device provides a great big helping of...
