Video: Motorola to announce Android tablet at CES 2011… calls the iPad a “giant iPhone”


The tablet wars are heating up. Motorola has released a video that gives their perspective of the “Tablet Evolution” – everything from an Egyptian tablet that had good graphics but proved to be heavy and not be portable. The 1:30 video even finds time poke fun at both the Apple iPad calling it a “giant iPhone” and that the Samsung Galaxy Tab runs off Android OS 2.2 that’s built for a phone. Their tablet looks to be running Android OS 3.0 Honeycomb and will be announced at CES 2011 in January (We’ll be there to see it happen)… check out the video after the break

    Wow, I can’t believe how wrong that guy is. The iPad IS NOT a giant iPhone. It’s a giant iPod, get it right.

      iPod, iPhone, who cares? The main issue with his statement is that a Motorola tablet will be “a giant Droid X” anyways. Is it better?

      I highly doubt they’re going to make that mistake. Keep drinking the Apple Kool-Aid lemming.

    Doesn’t matter if moto’s new tablet will be running honeycomb. Once moto cripples and neuters Android 3 with their motoblur UI their tablet will be just another crippled laggy POS like all their handsets. I wish Google would show some balls and make all carriers install stock Android on their products.

      Actually, if you watched the video of Andy Rubin and knew what you were talking about, you’d know that it will be running stock android 3.0 Honeycomb. Strictly designed for tablets.

    • Sean

      Just so you know the first moto tablet will be stock android. It will be equivalent to the nexus one and S.

    ^^ its a customized android TABLET OS that is made for a TABLET not a phone. i hate it when people make these accusations that it will be bad because of what they assume. ignorant people these days…

      I just puked in an ant hill!

    It started with the Motorola Startek. Good looking exterior, good hardware inside, but horrible user interface.
    Oh Moto, if only you could make your UI good, I’d soooo buy your products.

    Google Maps updates itself during your sleep without asking you, which is very strange in my opinion….

    • Me Ted

      I’m not really sure what that has to do with any of this but no it doesn’t.

  • H

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab will run OS 3.0 Honeycomb as well.

    • ad

      well…with the tab 2 that is coming i don’t think we are gettin a taste of honeycomb . galaxy s series have hard time to get the update for 2.2 and the tab except if you root it,won’ get 2.3,in my opinion.

    The Ten Commandments should be in Ancient Hebrew.

  • Zeake

    Very sweet promo! Well Done!

  • Nasir

    I thought it was a very good promo, cant wait to see what this device has to offer.

  • Josh

    Meh. That promo video was kind of lame.

    But still, I’m looking forward to seeing what the device can do.
