PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Ever since Honeycomb's release, Android has had two versions out in the wild (well, if you disregard the non-current versions, that is). The next major Android release, Ice Cream Sandwich, is supposed to fix this problem by having one single version of Android for both phones and tablets. Google now has a blog post up which presents some options for developers to prepare their applications for Ice Cream Sandwich.

So it will be easier to create an app that sucks as bad on the phone as it does on an Android tablet. Cool.

Apple is getting very scared of some emerging Android tablets to such an extent that it has tried to ban them from getting offered to people.

Here is an article by someone named Davey Winder that perhaps uncovers the real reason why Apple is running scared:

Is banned Android Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 better than the Apple iPad 2?


Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is, without any shadow of a doubt, the best Android-powered tablet to date. In fact, it's even better than the iPad 2. There, we said it. Let's just hope that all the design and patent silliness gets sorted so that consumers everywhere can discover that there is life outside of Apple when it comes to truly stunning tablet devices.

Not everyone has come to the conclusion that Android tablets suck. In fact, for some devices, the conclusion is quite the opposite.

Apparently, Apple doesn't want consumers to discover this.

Apple isn't necessarily scared. YET. They're just using the patent/trademark/copyright system to avoid competing to the maximum extent possible. They don't want to repeat what happened when cheap clone PCs ate the Mac's lunch. But it's going to happen, regardless of what Apple does. It's only delaying its fall from grace.
