Tablets are flooding the market presently since they are considered to be more flexible than desktop PC. Many PC makers join the tight competition to create tablets and they hope for the luck in the market. However, the way they develop tablets may result in good and bad future. Apart from this flexibility, which is the positive of the development of tablets, there is something to concern that vendors don’t seem come with an idea than putting Android into their tablets.
As an example, one computer maker that decided to gain luck from tablet euphoria is Motorola that rolled out Motorola Xoom, the tablet model that runs on Android 3.0 version called Honeycomb. This tablet packs an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor and brings 10.1-inch 1280-by800 display. It is an unfortunate that the tablet gives indication the unfinished product because when you go to the booth, the tablet runs a video of the operating system only.
Moreover, other models of tablet computer are claimed will be running the same OS, the Honeycomb, in fact they are only taking the older 2.2 version (Froyo) on board. This news released in particular show “Consumer Electronic Show” and before the show, CES counted the estimation showed that there would be 80 tablets at the show.
In fact, the number of the tablets displayed on the booths was not in the same amount as had been estimated previously. Most of the 4-inch to 10-inch tablets shown flood the booths and if you questioned them about the operating system run on the tablets, they would say that those tablets run Android. It is not surprising thing learning that most of the tablets came with Android OS without Google’s approval or without the access to the Android Market.
Those tablets were offered with a really cheap price and this invites more doubt whether those devices will be able to run fast and easy access to most applications or not. However, it seems that they are not ready yet about designing Android-running tablets because you don’t seem get much chances to have some variations on the software side. (fallen)
