Nuking a Hurricane Would Be a Really Bad Idea [Irene]

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

Did we learn nothing from Independence Day? Nuking things for nuking’s sake just doesn’t work like we think it might. Take a hurricane, for example. It’d be relatively immune to whatever ordinance Bill Pullman—sorry, humanity—might throw at it. More »

eLocity outs Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) in new tablet announcement

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

In the inevitable hurricane of Android tablets set to rain down on CES this week, one thing is for sure: it won’t be easy for smaller manufacturers to separate themselves from the pack. Stream TV-owned eLocity found a way to do just that, however, by going against Google’s wishes and outing Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) ahead if any official announcement. Though most readers have likely never heard of eLocity, the relatively new tableteer has several devices in store for us this year. In fact, today’s press release talks up seven different tablets that will be shown off at CES, each belonging to the company’s new A10 line. The names aren’t overly catchy — they’re annoyingly called the A10.1 through A10.7 — but we’re still intrigued. The company appears to have secured some solid distribution deals and while full specs aren’t yet available, each A10 slate will include a dual-core Tegra 2 processor (in accordance with rumored Google requirements), microSDHC support (up to 32 GB), USB ports and 1080p video output via HDMI. eLocity’s A10 tablets will be available for pre-order beginning January 17th, though pricing is not yet available. Hit the jump for eLocity’s full press release.

These models, equipped with ample storage, front facing cameras and HDMI outputs, will be available at varying price points to meet a wide range of user preferences. The new eLocity A10.1, A10.2, A10.3, A10.4, A10.5, A10.6 and A10.7 models will have the highest screen resolution within the mobile tablet category. eLocity A10s launch for online preorder beginning on January 17th at http://MicroCenter.com, http://Frys.com, http://Sears.com, http://Newegg.com, http://Walmart.com, http://bjs.com, http://TigerDirect.com, http://Amazon.com and http://MicroCenter.com.

CEO Mathu Rajan of Stream TV comments, “We’re pleased to introduce our new mobile tablets in time for CES. These additional models will make the A Series tablet line more robust and provide consumers with more options to suit their varied needs, while addressing skyrocketing demand for tablet computing solutions.”

HP tell employees webOS tablet coming Q1 2011

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

We’ve been trying to find out when HP would launch a webOS tablet since the company first bought Palm, and we’re now hearing from several trusted sources that it’ll be Q1 2011. We’re told Personal Systems Group VP Todd Bradley mentioned the date during an all-hands employee meeting yesterday, and that the project is indeed known internally as “Hurricane.” (We’re assuming this is what that PalmPad trademark filing was for, but we can’t confirm that.) Shipping a killer tablet would be one way to change the subject from ex-CEO Mark Hurd’s recent troubles, we suppose — but we’re definitely wondering if HP is actually going to three different tablet operating systems after it launches the Windows 7-based Slate for the enterprise and the Android-based Zeen e-reader tablet for consumers as well. We’ll see — Q1 could be mighty interesting.

HP rumored to be releasing a webOS tablet in Q3

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

hp-logo

According to an HP insider by way of The Examiner, HP will be releasing a webOS-based tablet in Q3. Presumably featuring better hardware than the poorly reviewed HP Slate, recently scrapped by HP, the webOS tablet is said to be codenamed “Hurricane”. Now before anyone gets too excited we should remind everyone that HP’s acquisition of Palm has yet to be finalized and still has a few months to go (HP said the deal should be done by July 31st). So unless HP has thrown caution to the wind and is already working hard on the Hurricane (or simply believes it wouldn’t be all that hard to slap together a decent tablet in a few month’s time) then we find this whole Q3 business a bit hard to believe.

Rumor: HP’s WebOS Tablet "Hurricane" Coming Out In Q3 2010 [Rumor]

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

Here’s a brief history of the internet’s infatuation with the idea of a Web OS tablet: First we heard that HP was buying Palm. Interesting! Then we heard that the Windows 7-running HP Slate was canceled. Very interesting. Now, a post on the Examiner citing “industry insiders” says that a WebOS tablet dubbed “Hurricane” could be arriving as soon as Q3 of this year. It certainly seems like HP would try to get such a product out as quickly as possible, though there’s nothing in this report that’s substantial enough to get too excited about. Still, I want to believe, and so I will. [Examiner via Engadget] More »

webOS-based HP Hurricane tablet rumored for Q3

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

Shortly after announcing a blockbuster deal to acquire Palm, HP confessed that it would be “doubling down on webOS,” with near-term plans to “scale it across multiple connected devices.” We took the liberty at that point to assume this meant that a larger webOS-based device was at least sitting around in the rear of someone’s mind, and now it sounds as if Palm loyalists may actually have something tangible to look forward to. According to an unsubstantiated report over at the Examiner, an “insider at HP” has informed the site that “a webOS tablet under the code name HP Hurricane could be released the third quarter of this year.” This all lines up well with what we’ve heard over the past few weeks: HP pledged to take webOS to places it has never been, strong whispers emerged that the HP Slate was being shelved, and now, people close to the HP camp have given a name to a purported webOS tablet slated for Q3. There’s obviously no telling if this is simply hot air being blown, but we wouldn’t be shocked to see HP nail down a webOS slate in time for the sure-to-be-rockin’ 2010 holiday buying season. Or maybe we’re just crossing our fingers, humming aloud and praying to our lucky stars that this all pans out.

[Thanks, Mike and Trever]
