Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 are now up for pre-order for US gadget-geeks. The slate tablet is powered by Windows 7 tablet with a 10.1-inch, 1280 x 800 IPS screen is ready for US pre-orders today, with $729 bringing you the base model with a 30GB solid state drive and a two-cell rechargeable battery. $849 upgrades the slate to 62GB of storage and four cells worth of swappable Lithium-ion joy, while both sport front and rear cameras, HDMI out, a bootable USB 2.0 port, a full-size SD slot and dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi.

Google does the unexpected, as it keeps Android Honeycomb's source codes from developers until further notice.

The Motorola Xoom tablet does have the Android Honeycomb inside. But according to BusinessWeek, Google has no plans of releasing the Android Honeycomb source code to small hardware makers and developers due to the fear of having unpleasant results and user-experiences, especially if programmers attempt to bring the Honeycomb to phones.

According to Google Spokesperson, Andy Rubin, the “Android 3.0, Honeycomb, was designed from the ground up for devices with larger screen sizes and improves on Android favorites such as widgets, multi-tasking, browsing, notifications and customization.” He further added that “while we’re excited to offer these new features to Android tablets, we have more work to do before we can deliver them to other device types including phones.”

Written on March 07, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

Sprint is out dominate CTIA as they booked 2.5 hours of spotlight possibly for their new smartphones and tablet line-up.

An anonymous tipster sent word over at Engadget that Sprint’s cooking up something considering they’ve booked a whopping 2.5 hours of spotlight over at the CTIA later this month. According to the he-who-must-not-be-named source, the carrier will be launching Samsung’s Nexus S 4G and the EVO 3D Smartphones, and the EVO View tablet.

There are no further details of what these smartphones and tablet has to offer except for the obvious. Nexus S 4G will undoubtedly have 4G functionality, the EVO 3D will be a 3D enabled smartphone, while the EVO View tablet, we can only assume it will be faster or equally fast as the upcoming tablets with your usual mix of cameras, nice CPUs, impressive screen displays, and so on.

If rumors prove to be true, Sprint’s presentation at the CTIA will be a nice rebound after a dismal performance last CES 2011 as the carrier only unveiled the EVO Shift 4G smartphone. Looks like all eyes will fixate on Sprint for the whole 2.5 hours, let’s hope they won’t fail to impress.
