Motorola fans are all kinds of excited for the XOOM when it was released February 24 and now that the tablet will be partnered with a Wi-Fi connection, they’re even giddier. The XOOM is still the only tablet to work off of the Honeycomb OS.
According to a statement, the XOOM showcases the innovations of the Honeycomb user experience – including widgets, true multi-tasking, browsing, notifications and customization – on a 10.1-inch widescreen HD display, enabling video content that’s richer and clearer than ever before. With a 1GHz dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM, Motorola XOOM delivers exceptionally fast web-browsing performance.
The latest Google Mobile services include Google Maps 5.0™ with 3D interaction and access to more than 3 million Google eBooks and apps from Android Market™. The XOOM also supports a Beta of Adobe® Flash® Player 10.2 downloadable from Android Market, enabling the delivery of rich Flash based web content including videos, casual games and rich Internet applications.
The last time Google was accused of stealing, this same source was defamed and his words were debunked by many. Still, the fact that he so boldly claims the things he claims gets us to listen. The latest says Google copied 2.5 megabyes of code from over 700 linux kernel header files for its Dalvik VM. After dropping a comment here and an if statement there, Google supposedly claimed the documents contained no copyrightable information.
Florian Mueller – the infamous man behind FOSS Patents – says this could be legally crippling for Google. Should Google be accused and found guilty of what Florian is proposing here, GPL rules would force them and ANY partner – including developers in the Android market – to allow their wares to be freely modified and redistributed. Right away you can see what type of issues this would cause and how big of a problem it would be for all parties involved.
I’m not sure if these claims would get Google into that deep of a puddle of mud, but it’s still scary to think about. Florian says that a rewrite or replacing of the code would need to take place but professes that it’s much easier said than done. You can read more about his claim and the implications for Android’s future here, if you want. It really is an interesting read whether or not it turns up true. (It is lengthy, though, so grab yourself a bag of popped corn and get comfy.)
As smartphone sales for the Android continue to surge, many believe that Android-based devices have the potential to give the Apple iPad a run for its money in the tablet market. But according to a new report from Forrester Research, the iPad’s competitors won’t be able to keep up.
The report calls the iPad challengers – from Android Honeycomb tablets from Motorola and Toshiba to RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook and HP TouchPad – "solid products with fatally flawed product strategies."
"Miscalculations in pricing and distribution spell trouble for Android tablets, especially the Motorola Xoom," the report said.
The most basic version of the iPad is priced relatively low at $499, while the Motorola Xoom goes for about $100 more. You can get a Samsung Galaxy Tab for around $250, but that price tag is without a contract with a mobile carrier.
In addition to price, Forrester also believes consumers attribute more value to Apple products because of the company’s in-store service.
"Consumers are not only comparing feeds and speeds; there’s also a human factor," wrote report author Sarah Rotman Epps in a blog post. "The humans working in the Apple Store will have a huge impact teaching consumers about the iPad and how to use it."
"Compare the experience of walking into an Apple Store – where the iPad is front and center – to walking into a Verizon store where the Samsung Galaxy Tab is collecting dust at the back of the store and the sales reps don’t quite know what to make of it," she added. "Or walking into a Best Buy store, whose shelves will soon be lined with similar-looking tablets with similar functionality."
Forrester is forecasting that Apple will have at least 80 percent of the U.S. consumer market in 2011.
Although the report sang the iPad’s praises, it noted that there a few companies could make an impact in the tablet market, including Sony, Microsoft, Vizio and even Amazon.
"It would be easy to call the game for Apple as the second inning is starting, but we won’t because we see a market that’s ripe for disruption by Amazon in particular," Epps added. "Amazon could create a compelling Android- or Linux-based tablet offering easy access to Amazon’s storefront (including its forthcoming Android app store) and unique Amazon features like one-click purchasing, Amazon Prime service, and its recommendations engine."
Rovio, the developer behind the wildly successful Angry Birds franchise, announced on Monday that its forthcoming Android title Angry Birds Rio for Android will launch exclusively in the Amazon Appstore. Amazon announced in January that its app store, which will rival Google’s own Android Market on the Android platform, was open for developer submissions. The exclusive deal with Rovio marks Amazon’s first major coup in the space, as the title is expected to be a wildly popular game for Android. “The Android platform has seen phenomenal growth, and it’s great that new avenues for app distribution are opening up,” said Rovio CEO Mikael Hed in a statement. “The openness of the Android platform works for the benefit of consumers and developers alike. It has been delightful to team up with Amazon to bring the Angry Birds franchise to this great new application marketplace.” Rovio also announced that ad-free versions of Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons will be available for the first time on the Android platform exclusively through the Amazon Appstore. Hit the break for the full press release.

A few days ago Google was made aware that there were over 20 apps in the Android Market that were up to no good. These malicious apps gained system-level access to your handset when downloaded and would intercept and covertly transmit private data to 3rd party servers. Some of these apps have been downloaded more than 50,000 times. To try and fix the problem, Google has started using a remote kill switch feature in Android to wirelessly nuke those installed apps on user’s handsets. That’s not the entire story, though, as Google is actually installing new code in the process. The new code undoes the exploit and prevents your data from being shared, and it’s kind of creepy to plainly see how much control Google has over your Android phone from afar. Affected users have started receiving emails that the process has been completed.
The statement notes that the Android team last Tuesday was aware of the appearance on the Android Market programs containing malicious code. A few minutes later these programs have been identified and removed. These malicious applications are using the vulnerability, which affects the device with a version of the operating system Android 2.2.2 and higher. For the affected devices, according to the company, the attacker managed to collect only the specific information about the device – IMEI / IMSI codes that are used to identify the device, as well as information about the version of Android, is running on the user’s device.
But given the nature of malicious code, an attacker can gain access to other data about the device, which is why Google decided to take steps to protect those users who have downloaded the malicious program:
- Google has removed from the Android Market malicious programs; suspended account developer, and has contacted law enforcement authorities.
- Google to remotely remove malicious applications from infected devices. The remote removal application is part of the set of available measures to control the security system Android.
- In the Android Market has been posted a security update Android Market (Android Market security update), which is in the background is loaded on the device, subject to the above vulnerability, which would in future be able to resist such programs. If the unit has been "attacked", then the user within 72 hours will be notified by e-mail (a letter is sent from firstname.lastname@example.org ). In addition, the user will receive notification on your device that the application " Android Market Security Tool March 2011 it was established, and a notice that a certain application has been removed. All actions for recovery of mobile terminal will be in automatic mode, and the user will not be required to take any additional actions or decisions. Over the next 24 hours, the user will be notified of the elimination of vulnerabilities.
- Google introduces a number of additional measures to prevent emergence of Android Market software with malicious code that uses a similar vulnerability and distributed through the Android Market.
