Huawei Announces New MediaPad Series [CES 2012]

Coming off the announcement of “World’s thinnest smartphone,” Huawie has introduced a new series of MediaPad tablets. The first announcement was for Huawei’s new MediaPad, which appears to be the same as the original MediaPad released in June, but will come pre-installed with Android 4.0. This would make the MediaPad one of the world’s first tablets to come pre-loaded with the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. I guess Huawei is really going for those “world’s first” titles. Besides the new MediaPad with Ice Cream Sandwich, Huawei has announced a new MediaPad color series. More…

Motorola hopes to change all that with their Televation product. With Televation, users will have an independent, dedicated content feed from their cable provider that can be streamed to any connected IP device for viewing across a user’s wireless network. The product was actually announced back in June but they had some demos at CES to show off just how well it works. More…

Google Search For Android 2.2 and 2.3 Receives Update

Google introduced a nice little update to their search app for Android users running 2.2 and 2.3. The update brings a more simplified UI and new color scheme, among other things. The search app on Android is probably the single most used feature and I’ll admit, one we probably take for granted, so it’s nice to see it getting some update love. If you haven’t grabbed the update yet, you can head on over to the Android Market and start enjoying: More…
