    Motorola MOTOPAD to Be First Android 3.0 Tablet

    Motorola MOTOPAD to Be First Android 3.0 Tablet

    November 15th, 2010


    Atweet by Mobile-Review’s Eldar Murtazin has been floating around this morning in regards to the upcoming Motorola tablet. The statement in questions is that the tablet — which here is referred to as the MOTOPAD — will be the first Android 3.0 tablet. We will assume by 3.0 he means Honeycomb, as we learned a lesson with Gingerbread never to assume version number of the next OS update. Anyway, apparently Eldar is a pretty respected insider, which is why this tweet is being given so much weight.
    While I’m pretty sure we have seen reports in the past that already hinted at an exclusive deal with Moto to launch Honeycomb much in the same way they did Android 2.0 (and how Samsung has been given priority with Android 2.3), after BGR picked up the story it seemed worth mentioning. BeeTeeDubs, I doubt this thing ends up being called the MOTOPAD.

    I'm still on the side that believe 3.0 is GB. The X already has ver 2.3.2, which would make GB being 2.3 complete nonsense. Why would they revert to a later build number for a new release?

    anyway.... wonder when they're shooting for release.

    Since no specs are mentioned, maybe this is the 2.0 'device' moto promised by xmas.

    I think gb is going to be 2.3 but who knows. Hopefully Honeycomb will have a lot of changes. I might consider getting one.

    the 2.3.2 697 you are seeing on the X is the BUILD number, not the OS number. They are two completely different things. If you check to see the info in ABOUT PHONE, you will see what I am talking about.

    Bah! Who cares. It'll likely have a locked bootloader.

    True, my mistake, but I don't have an X so it might be difficult to check

    +1 to this... better be stellar out of the box since It'll probably be locked tighter than Fort Knox.

    [Rumor] MOTOPAD first to launch with Honeycomb and one other sweet bit of rumor.


    These new details come from Mobile-Review which is run by Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin who is a VERY reliable source. He is the gentleman who confirmed the Samsung dual-core phone. His Tweet reads:

    Google choose (sic) MOTOPAD as a first device to show Android 3.0 - 7 inch version

    Motorola has been working on their Android tablet for over a year now and as you see Mobile-Review claims the tablet will be called the MOTOPAD, but not many details are provided beyond that. We've heard it called the Everest and most recently the Sting Ray. What it will be called when it's released is anybody's guess.

    Lastly, I have some more juicy, or should I say SWEET rumor, for those waiting on the Terminator/T2/Etna/Olympus. You know the Moto "superphone" a lot of you are waiting on? Well 2 sources (not mine) have hinted that it will be packing the same punch as the MOTOPAD. What does that mean to us? Well if the MOTOPAD is packing some serious hardware, which it should, you will own one of the most powerful Android devices to date.

    Android and Me expects Motorola to announce their Android tablet at CES in Las Vegas. The big press event is scheduled for Wednesday, January 5th. Don't be surprised if they also reveal the the Etna/Olympus/ Terminator as well.

    2011 can't come quick enough.
