In less than two hours we will hear what Apple has to say about iOS and Mac OS, but while you are waiting you can listen to MobileTechRoundup show #271 to hear what Kevin and I think will be revealed today
MOTOACTV update, ICS for SGS II, Flipboard for Android, and HTC clearance (MobileTechRoundup show #270)
Motorola continues to update the MOTOACTV device, turning it into an even better smart watch. There are updates coming soon for Galaxy S II owners and Flipboard can be downloaded now for Android owners.
Kevin and I talk a lot about our personal choices and in this week's show you will hear about a few moves I made in regards to my smartphones and many other mobile musings.
The Galaxy Tab 7.7 with LTE is a beautiful piece of hardware, but the price is too high with a 2-year contract and it comes with last year's operating system. It's tough to argue with the Super AMOLED Plus display and the customizability of the Android OS though too.
We can't really figure out if the Galaxy Note is a phone or a tablet, but that doesn't seem to matter much as Samsung passes the 5 million mark in sales.
The OS 2.0 update brought support for Android apps on the BlackBerry PlayBook. While many Android apps are available in BB App World, there are still many missing that can be side-loaded onto the device. This is similar to how apps are loaded on the Kindle Fire and B&N Nook Tablet.
The Apple iPad is an amazing tablet with textbook content now fully supported. What's keeping it from becoming the standard for the educational sector? Should something else be used instead?
It's been said before there is no tablet market, just an iPad market. However, 2011 started showing that wasn't true and Android is making gains in the tablet space.
We don't all need the latest and greatest Android tablets and ViewSonic is launching devices that meet those who want to save money without too much compromise.
