Acer Iconia Tab A200 Overview [video]

November 28th, 2011

The best thing that can happen in the tablet market is to add yet another option. I would prefer a 7″ option myself…but the 10″ versions aren’t too bad either.

Up front, it’s looking like a pretty standard 10-inch slate, replete with a front-facing camera, but turn it around and you’ll find its back is covered in a deep magenta (or is it mauve?). It’ll still be available in a tamer black as well, as the video goes on to show. The A200 will feature a full-sized USB port, microSD storage expansion, and Acer’s clear.fi and Acer Ring software technologies.

CyanogenMod 9 Alpha builds for Galaxy S, Nexus S

November 28th, 2011

Who wants to wait for Google to get the ball rolling? CyanogenMod 9 (I.C.S.) is in an early Alpha stage with a couple of semi-stable ROMs for the Samsung Galaxy S and the Samsung Nexus S.

The Nexus S isn’t the only one running CyanogenMod 9, either — a beta version for the international Galaxy S is available to download on the xda-developers forum. It’s worth noting that even though both versions appear to be functional and not missing any major features, there’s plenty of posts noting a variety of issues users are having. Problems include some wiped internal SD cards on the Galaxy S and bugs with the contact list and phone app on the Nexus S. So while these releases may be nearly feature complete, they’re still not for the faint of heart.

ASUS Transformer Prime [video]

November 28th, 2011

Ubergizmo.com shares this awesome video of the ASUS Transformer Prime that they discovered.

The folks over at Ritchie’s Room recently got their hands on the tablet, spent some time with it and posted a pretty detailed first look report on the Android table. Judging by what they’ve written and the video review, you can say they’re pretty excited about it. The only thing negative about the tablet is probably the lack of Ice Cream Sandwich which is slated to arrive on the tablet before the end of the year.
