iPhone vs. Android: Five points of difference

,----[ Quote ]
| The iPhone is as proprietary as Apple can 
| possibly make it. If you like what Apple 
| wants to give you in the iPhone, you'll 
| never notice.
| But, if you want more than what Apple wants 
| to offer you, you're out of luck. Take 
| Adobe Flash, for example. Adobe would love 
| to let you view Flash videos and play Flash 
| games on an iPhone, but Apple will have 
| nothing to do with Flash. Short of the 
| Department of Justice ordering Apple to let 
| Flash on iPhones or Adobe suing Apple into 
| submission, the only way Flash will show up 
| on iPhones, or iPads for that matter, will 
| be through technical kludges.
| Android is far more open. If there's an 
| Android application out there, even if it's 
| not in Google's official Android Market, 
| you can download, install, and run it. 



Linux Tablets to Be Headed in the Near Future

,----[ Quote ]
| As a matter of fact, word is that some Linux
| tablets are headed our way in the near future
| but they ainât here yet. And while I think
| that Linux tablets will do well, it also
| drives me to expect a lot from them.
| According to Jim Zemlin, the head of the Linux
| Foundation, it is necessary for mobile Linux
| vendors to increase their technical
| investments in order users could benefit Linux
| devices.

| 480 capacitive touchscreen. All of this
| wrapped up into a less than $200 package.


Resolved Kogan Promises $200 HD Pad

| It's been a while since we last checked in
| on Ruslan Kogan, the brains behind the
| just-about-released Kogan Agora Pro.  With
| a launch only a few weeks away, the
| Australian electronics maker pulled their
| Android handset back and quietly went off
| the radar.  So what is Ruslan up to now?
| Bigger, better things!Recently, he was
| found demonstrating a new tablet at the
| MediaConnect Kickstart forum in
| Queensland.


Need a tablet? Android based iLet Mini HAL shipping March 1 for $199

,----[ Quote ]
| With all of the tablet-fever recently, you
| may have sat back and thought to yourself,
| âdo I need one of these things?â Even with
| Apple trying to convince us that the next
| form of computing is going to be tablet and
| gesture based, many people including myself
| are still questioning if a tablet is
| something we really need.
| It looks like the company Haleron thinks we
| need a tablet in our lives and decided to
| enter the game with their 7â Android 1.6
| based iLet Mini HAL. It isnât the most
| powerful device; running a 600MHz VIA CPU
| with 128MB of RAM but for a low $199 price
| tag you canât really ask for too much. The
| Haleron iLet Mini HAL will also have 2GB of
| onboard memory as well as 10GB of âcloudâ
| storage for all of your stuff and will start
| shipping next week.
