Sony Honeycomb tablet to hit US by end of summer 2011

Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer has apparently confirmed that the company will launch an Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet later in 2011. Bloomberg quotes Japan’s Nikkei as saying Stringer confirmed the slate would drop at the end of the summer, with the US targeted first.

Last we heard, Sony was readying an S1 PlayStation tablet with a 9.4-inch display, Tegra 2 processor and a distinctive curved “wrap” chassis. Gaming, ereader, computing and media streaming is all expected to be included; we’d also expect Sony to do some UI work on top of Android 3.0, too.

We’re having trouble finding the exact Nikkei report, though back in January the paper claimed Stringer was aiming to take the number two spot in tablets, after Apple, by the end of 2012. The CEO suggested Sony’s lengthy development period was so that the slate could be sufficiently differentiated from other Android tablets, and hinted that 3D was a possibility.

Last Minute Engineering Issues Led Apple To Pull Retina Display From iPad 2

According to Engaget, an “engineering issues” have led Apple to make last-minute design changes to iPad 2, these changes will cause to launch iPad 2 which scheduled to see the light by March 2nd without a Retina Display 😦

What’s the cause of the switch? Well our sources weren’t crystal clear on the exact reasons, but the gist of what was explained to us centered around vague “engineering issues” which may have forced some changes at the eleventh hour. It’s worth noting once again that these sources have been dead right on specific Apple plans and specifications for unannounced products in the past, and we have no reason to believe these changes are due to anything more than legitimate engineering decisions made close to launch.

According to the floating rumors, it’s expected to see a thinner iPad, 512MB RAM, more powerful CPU with A5 processor, front camera and more. In the same event, it’s rumored to see a preview for iOS 5 for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, and releasing for iOS 4.3 GM (Gold Master).

I wish I had an iPhone unlock, the simple BB holes appear closed (my fuzzer comes up blank). In fact, I’m still using my 3GS cause I don’t have one :-/Via Geohot Blog

The statement from Geohot marks the end of long standing rumor about new iPhone unlock tool Rubysn0w. Geohot is already busy in fighting legally with Sony, so he may not get time to work on iPhone 4 unlock. But that isn’t stopping him from venturing deeper into Sony’s product line. He has recently voiced his intention to be the first person to root the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play.

Don’t get disheartened! iPhone Dev Team has already confirmed that they will release theupdated ultrasn0w tool once apple drops beta tag from iOS 4.3 firmware. We are sure, iPhone Dev Team will not eat their words. So, please be patient!

Google 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea doodle is best yet

Google has set the bar pretty high with its homepage doodles – the search giant’s playable Pac-Man logo remains one of our favorites – but today’s Jules Verne example is perhaps the best yet. Celebrating Verne’s 183rd birthday, the Google logo has been transformed into viewing windows from the Nautilus, from the author’s famous 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

 

Best of all, by moving the lever on the right hand side, you can navigate under water and explore fish and even locate a giant squid. If you’re browsing on a device with an accelerometer (and using a recent version of Chrome or Firefox) then you can eschew the lever and simply tilt to navigate instead.

It’s all been built in CSS3 and looks incredible; even the tiny gauges on the left respond as you’d expect them to. If you’re interested in reading 20,000 Leagues then you can find it here.

Yanko Design Presents The Perfect Superphone

The Motorola Atrix packs the dual-core power of a computer into a slender handset package. Moto made much of the laptop and TV docks, but both of those (admittedly nifty) peripheral products merely underscore the sad truth. On its own, the Atrix is a caged lion.

 

The 4″ display candy-bar form-factor has its limitations. There’s only so much you can do with a device like that before adding in peripherals. This new concept phone from Yanko designer Lin Jian Feng may be able to squeeze a big shot of additional power into the handset.

It has a medium-sized plastic bezel/body that detaches from the screen and slides out to reveal two halves of a keyboard, complete with a rolling-ball mouse and a left/right/middle mouse button key. The display will also be able to fold up out of the body, using it as a base to allow for more comfortable extended viewing.

MIDs are supposed to be a dead platform, but I’d buy the hell out of any smartphone that was a freaking Transformer. Every other gadget nerd raised on cartoons would be compelled to do the same. Lin Jian Feng is a genius.

Motorola XOOM Super Bowl Teaser Ad Hits the Internet

Motorola has published a new teaser for the Motorola XOOM. Supposedly a teaser for the Super Bowl ad this Sunday, the minute clip features Motorola stating that it’s time to break free from control from a single manufacturer, this is 2011 not 1984.

The ad, of course, is heavily targeting the iPad. Boasting the XOOMs impressive specs, we can tell that it’s “out of this world.”

Let’s all just hope the advertisement that airs on Sunday is a lot more impressive than scrolling specs through space.

What do you think of the teaser? Super Bowl quality?
