Google Android Tablet : Froyo is Not Suitable for Tablets

Google Android Tablet Froyo. In the recent interview, Hugo Barra, director of Google’s mobile, it was let slip some statements about Android and its integration into the tablet: hear what he said.

According to Barra, Android Froyo is not suitable for use on a tablet. Froyo is not being optimized for this device type. The problem mainly affects applications that are not suitable to be performed on very large display like tablets.

The Galaxy Tab however, provides an exception, In fact more like a smartphone than a giant tablet itself and therefore the usability of the operating system should not have any serious problem.

Microsoft Aiming at Tablet Market

Right now, more than anything, Microsoft needs your money for your tablet PC.

This week in Redmond, Steve Ballmer, CEO said that company will “come full guns” at the mobile technology market, kicking to the control view that the company have become dreary and predictable — views that have many in the industries speculating if Steve has live longer than his value to the company after thirty years as a chief executive.

“We are gonna sell like crazy; we are gonna market like crazy” said Steve Ballmer.

Steve is going total nuts on the overnight success of iPods, and he is anxious to see that Microsoft returning back to relevance in the market which already worth billions.

Now the aim is to get into the tablet market as fast as possible and Microsoft says that the number one job now is tablet business at the company.

Ballmer didn’t gave any indication on how does the tablets look like and even when it will be arriving.

Microsoft did have the models of the cell phones which runs on Win phone 7 OS on hand, but not yet there is no release of any photos of them, citing how the company had loads of works to do to get ready for the launch.

But it is really too much works for the company to handle. Already Microsoft is too late to the Tablet party and each day it delays – or allowing other company to launch substandard hardware in the market with the Win running on it — it falling well further behind iPad.

And the cell phone business might actually be even worse. Microsoft is staggering from the terrible terminate d launch of the KIN phone which is thought to be the initial waves for the Win Phone 7, which had done not anything to improve its reputation as a player in the space of cell phone.

Right now “Getting Crazy” is the Microsoft’s only choice.

HP Dual Tablet Plans – McKinney

One Wednesday, during the AlwaysOn Stanford Summit, the executive of Personal Systems Group Phil Mckinney said that, “HP will be using Windows 7 for the tablet designed especially for enterprises, which will also be a consumer based unit that works on WebOS”.

HP is ready to compete against the Apple’s hit iPad and other related devices and also against the Cius business tablet from the Cisco. When Mckiney was queried about HP’s interest on Android systems, he said “HP will focus only on 2 OS, Web OS and Windows 7”.

HP Pavillion Dial tablet plan

The rumours and news about HP’s plan on tablet is circling everywhere. Last week, IDG News Service revealed a digital document suggesting that, “HP is getting ready to release HP Slate 500 that will run on Windows 7 and in order to have their brand name on PalmPad”. Earlier on April, HP bought Pal for 1.2 Billion Dollars.

Mckinney said, “Having the future in mind, Internet connection via a hub device will have a major impact in Mobile vision of HP. The Palm Pre has got this feature of linking wirelessly to WAN and WiFi coverage that surrounds it. Not only Palm Pre but also Verizon’s MiFi, HTC’s Evo 4G and Sprint’s Overdrive also has this cell to Wifi hub feature.

Mckinney said, “By separating the wide area radio and connectivity, and with this wireless connectivity available, HP devices can be updated frequently. It removes the problem of 2 time taking steps: certification of the carrier for the device and implementing radio interface between Wide area radio and device.”

HP has tried with the UWB (ultra wide band) and so other local networks can also be used for connecting to the hubs.

HP is not going to make a hub device like a watch, which it had displayed 5 years ago.  But soon another manufacturer who had developed such a model will be releasing it soon.

He said, “HP wants the displays to be separated from mobile devices like folding type displays and wider screen and can be linked to the mobiles. Display could be made on the mylar film and can be posted anywhere. Each and everything will soon be a display”.
