Galaxy Tab to Have Skype Artificially Limited to WiFi.

With as much as carriers claim to be here “for the people” and embracing all kinds of new, innovative technologies, they sure do a lot to hamper progress. Take for example the rather disappointing revelation that the upcoming Galaxy Tab will be limited to WiFI-only calls over Skype when used on Verizon’s network. Such a move is rather AT&T-like, usually signaling a desperate attempt to keep an already weak network from crashing to its knees. But…

Creative Introduces the Ziio Line of Android-Powered Tablets

To say the tablet market is exploding right would be an understatement. Currently, there are no less than half a dozen manufacturers including but not limited to Toshiba, LG, RIM, and Apple. Each company and device has their own spin on how a tablet should look and function. Who makes the best tablet is more or less subjective. But there’s another new kid on the block — Creative.

iPad Reigns Supreme in the Tablet Market to the Tune of 95%, Though Dominance is Shortlived.

iPad Reigns Supreme in the Tablet Market to the Tune of 95%, Though Dominance is Shortlived.

Strategy Analytics released a study recently highlighting the more or less obvious — the iPad is killing it in the tablet arena to the tune of 95%. However, the firm is quick to note that while the iPad is on top now, the building wave of manufacturer and developer support for cheaper Android tablets is growing, and that by later next year, the tables could be turned pretty substantially.

Lenovo: “No Android tablets until Honeycomb.”

If you’re one of the many folks holding out for a Lenovo-made Android tablet, your wait just got quite a bit longer. The Lenovo CEO Rory Read, came out today and stated that they have ceased development on any type of Android 2.2 (Froyo) tablet, and are instead waiting for Honeycomb. The move shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise seeing as how Google themselves has repeatedly encouraged hardware manufacturers to not put Froyo on tablets. With the delay,…

AT&T a-la-carte data plan pricing for Samsung Galaxy Tab leaked.  (Spoiler: They suck)

I sure hope you weren’t planing on using that shiny new Samsung Galaxy Tab of yours for anything useful while you are out and about, far from the reaches of traditional WiFi networks. The supposed data plans for the Galaxy Tab were leaked not more than 24 hours ago by an AndroidGuys AT&T source, and boy is it looking mighty bad for 3G hopefuls. AT&T a-la-carte Galaxy Tab data plan pricing $15: 100MB for 1 day $30: 300MB for 3 days $50: 1GB for 30…

AT&T, if you have to “save your network”, this is how it needs to be done: Sprint Playbook shows data throttling coming later this summer

No one likes to see their “unlimited” data plan that they pay for each month shackled and stoned into limited oblivion. But that’s exactly what is sweeping across the mobile industry as of late. (Thanks AT&T!) Even though Sprint CEO Dan Hesse was recently heard saying Sprint “had no plans to change data plans”, news of data throttling coming to Spring is still far better news than what others (read: AT&T) have employed. The rumor is…
