Galaxy Tab 7.7 4G LTE headed to Verizon

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 was officially announced a couple of months ago, and while it's already available for pre-order - we still don't have an official date of when it will be arriving in the US yet. Now we still don't have a date but at least we know which carrier will be selling it when it is released. According to leaked photographs of Verizon's inventory listing it looks like Samsung's 7.7″ Android tablet will be sold by Big Red.

Just in case the DROID XYBOARD 8.2″ or 10.1″ are too large for you, I guess the 7.7″ might be the sweet spot for the tablet size you want. Oh, and it looks like the Galaxy Tab 7.7 will feature 4G LTE on Verizon as well (judging by the 4G label on the side of the list). No word on pricing or a release date, but Verizon would do well to take advantage of the holiday season - especially since the Galaxy Nexus is still nowhere to be seen. Who's waiting for the Galaxy Tab 7.7?

Kindle Fire 1-Click Could Be Crack for Kids

Planning on buying a Kindle Fire for your kids? It seems like a great idea, right? All the books, all the movies and all the Angry Birds action you'd find in an iPad, but at less than half the price. Who cares if the brats break it?

Not so fast. Like the regular Kindle before it, the Kindle Fire is equipped with 1-Click shopping. Once signed in, you can buy as much as you like without needing to enter your password.

But unlike the regular Kindle, the Fire's colorful touch-screen and huge library of apps, music and movies is rather tempting to a child's little brain and fingers. And these can all be bought by little Johnny with a simple tap.

The answer is to de-register the Kindle after every purchase, something that almost nobody will do. Aside from the inconvenience, de-registering will also disable any installed apps. And you thought Android was “open.”

Speaking to Reuters, Amazon said that more parental controls will be added in the future. That probably won't help on Christmas day this year year, with parents drunk and distracted, and the kids all hopped up on sugar, manically tapping the 1-Click button and plundering Pops' credit card account.

Motorola Xyboard 10.1 and 8.2 Unboxing

The Motorola Xyboard tablets have landed at the office: there is a 10.1″ version, and a 8.2″ one. Both share a similar “design language”, but the usage model can be slightly different because of their size. For these new tablets, Motorola has used quality materials, and a “tough” design that makes both tablets look solid, and almost rugged (almost). We bet that Motorola wanted to differentiate itself by going after one of the main criticism that other Android tablets, namely the Galaxy Tab series, receive often: they feel a bit “plastic”. Motorola takes the opposite route and even shows metallic screws in the back.
