Moto's $10,000 tablet runs Android 3.0

While we're still waiting for the first phone to come out with Android 2.3 (the Samsung Nexus S), Google have gone one step further with a look at Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" running on a Motorola tablet device.. which a Google VP jokingly said would cost $10,000 (although this is probably an accurate price tag for an engineering sample like this).

Android 3.0 is built with tablets in mind, a big plus point to anyone who has felt a bit disappointed by the Samsung Galaxy Tab which is just like a scaled up smartphone.

Obviously, all this is going to appear sometime next year.. and hopefully it will give some serious competition to Apple's highly-polished tablet offering, whatever that is called.

Video: Samsung Nexus S

At last, the Samsung Nexus S (or is it the Google Nexus S) is official. Few surprises here.. basically a tweaked version of the Galaxy S running Android 2.3, but that's no bad thing. And if you live in the US and UK you might be able to get your hands on one by Christmas.

Sony Ericsson Playstation phone revealed.. sort of.

The "Zeus" is allegedly Sony Ericsson's dedicated gaming phone, although it has been dubbed the "Playstation phone", this is in fact an android slider that substitutes gaming controls where you might expect to see a keyboard.

The announcement is expected this week.. but it's too late to get this in the shops by Christmas which would have been ideal.

The Zeus will certainly give a boost to Sony Ericsson, in our view they have failed to impress this year and their flagship Xperia X10 device is not a patch on the HTC Desire (although the X10 Mini is an intriguing device).
