Looks like new UI is confirmed for 3.0. I'm also pleased they are listening to my idea by taking cues from the 3D gallery

Meh on changing the UI, but "YES" on 1280 x 760 resolution. That probably would have pushed me over the line on the Galaxy S instead of wavering.

I think the 1280 is for tablets. I don't think we even have the display tech to create pixels that small in a 3.5in display.

Still, anything that pushes closer to support for a proper Android tablet is good. Tired of Apple being the only game in town.

It would be for the 4in+ screens. I'm sure the Evo 4G, Droid X or Galaxy S would be fine with a little enhanced res. Isn't Dell's Streak 4.3in?

Dude, soon we'll probably have our fill of tablets. Meego, Chrome OS, Android, Gimped Microsoft 7, WebOS, Other Linux distros...

And all of those are "coming soon" or "rumored" or "speculated" and often "unconfirmed".

so far I have seen basically no evidence that a single fucking one of these things besides maybe the Dell is anything but vaporware.

And the Dell has an 800x480 screen. So it's basically just a really big Nexus, display wise, which defeats so many points I'm not sure where to begin.

It's seems like the big fad is announcing a tablet, but not necessarily actually releasing anything.

I think I'm just going to get a Win7 hybrid and call it a day.

Not everyone can keep their mouth shut and then release it the day of some conference like Apple. MS could be they'd rather go to CES and have dozens of them lined up under their marquee.

Well, most companies don't have a rabid legion of fanbots to do all of their promotions for them. More so, they don't have a customer base the gets wood over mundane new features ( NOW WITH CUT AND PASTE! ).

In other words, other companies have to add a ton of new features and get word out there.

Remote Desktop to Windows 7: Wyse’s PocketCloud For Android’s Been Released

Tested, and approved.

This could be middling news for Android tablets. As a professional walking around campus or even a building and being able to just interface with a machine if you aren't at your desk.

I paid 20$ for a RDP client.


That said, no regrets, its been awesome. Will try out Pocket Cloud though, while it's free.

Well compared to the Iphone version it's missing features. $20 bucks is cheap, but I want to be cheaper.

Strange that Radioshack is listing the Vibrant for $500 out of contract when T-Mobile is supposedly selling it for $450.

I see the Droid X can send multimedia to a DLNA equipped tv, how does that work? Do you actually need cell service? Or is it its own thing?

So, my friend got his HTC Incredible the other day and after a few hours of playing with it I'm wracking my brain trying to figure out how to get out of my AT&T contract without having to pay anything so I can sell my 3GS and sign up with Sprint to get one for myself.

Well... You'd have to go to Verizon. Sprint doesn't carry the Incredible unless you are aiming at the HTC EVO?

I was playing with a HD2 the other day. Man I want a big 4.3 android. Maybe I'm wanting a tablet but I think a big phone would do me just fine.
