Motorola Tablet Makes Another Appearance, Is Definitely Headed to Verizon

The much-anticipated Motorola tablet (Everest) has made another appearance, only this time over at Howard Forums courtesy of user wnrussell.  This appears to be the same prototype tablet which we first saw from Andy Rubin last Monday (high-res pictures) only this time we have a couple of additional shots providing a few new bits of critical info.  The device is definitely headed to Verizon.  If you check out the gallery below, we’ve got Big Red’s name featured as clear, well almost as clear as day, which means this will be the Droid tablet.

Some specs were confirmed:  1GHz dual-core NVIDIA processor, gyroscope, 32GB built in storage, SD card for more, 512MB of RAM, 1280 x 800 screen, mini-HDMI port, camera, and pure awesomeness.  This is the tablet you should be saving your money for.

    Are they making the devices10.0 zise display?

  • Brian

    I especially like the fact that it has an SD card slot for storage expansion.

  • Mr Blurryfingaz

    All you need is 1ghz with a dual core chip. Especially when both cores are running at 1ghz. Push the chip to far and you lose efficiency and use more power then needed.

  • Scea0512

    as long as they dont price it out of site , this will be my next purchase !!

  • FortitudineVincimus

    sweet.. except it is only 1GHz… that is so, 2010, I expected more

  • Interstellarmind

    only 512 mb ram? when are we gonna get 1 gb ram??

  • tjpeco

    Yeah I think this might be the tablet that makes me rethink my opinion that tablets are silly.

  • realigion

    Seriously give it up with the WiFi only version – it'd be hugely expensive. Then you'll all whine how it's triple the price of the contracted version. Part of the point of the contract is you pay off the hardware with each monthly payment, that's also why carriers have ETFs. If you get a $500 phone and pay $100 for it, then cancel service after a month, they're making a $350 loss.

    I agree with Ryan C. Unfortunately, my birthday is in January,so there's no way in h__l that I'll be able to get it that soon. However, it's the first tablet that I've seen that has truly make me start taking the things seriously.

  • Prankm

    It kinda looks like it's made out of the same “soft plastic” material that the Droid X has coating it. If so, huge thumbs up! Would love to see this do for Android Tablets what the original Droid did for Android phones.

    PEOPLE SAY NO WIFI VERSION BUT ALL YOU DO IS BUY WITHOUT CONTRACT (THAT WOULD BE THE PRICE OF WIFI VERSION ANYWAY) CANCELL SERVICE AFTER A MONTH AND THEN TETHER…

    • Obvious

      your an idiot then they charge you the 400 dollar early cancellation fee dumb ass

      • http://twitter.com/joewhitcomb Joe Whitcomb

        you're also an idiot because your said your instead of you're/

        I GOT YOUR BACK CARLOS!!! but seriously, that's a stupid idea

      • realigion

        Or you can exceed limitations in a way that forces VZW to terminate your contract. I think the point of his comment was more to tell people the contract-less version is exactly how much a WiFi-only version would be… i.e. WAY too much (900+ dollars, at the very very least).

  • Koki

    My concern in saying, “This is the tablet you should be saving your money for,” is that we haven't even seen honeycomb. We said that about the Galaxy Tab, and it's so-so.

  • Shaun

    And to add to even more to the user experience, expect Motorola to incorporate it's MotoBlur (TM) services! MotoBlur has been a smashing success worldwide, with millions of subscribers! The Droid Everest by Motorola, featuring the world-renowned MotoBlur! In stores March 2011.

    • Binglut9

      To be honest I would not care if it had the motoblur because its not going to be used as my phone and its ten inches I could care less.

      • Kamesen

        his comment was obviously a mix of sarcasm and facetiousness

  • Jawshua

    You said camera, it also has a front facing camera as well, right?

    Looks like the only tablet I would ever buy, but, I wish it was called “Droid” something instead of Everest

    better be dual core and it needs more ram

  • kimir

    when is htc hitting the tablet scene?

  • http://Deodexed.com Deodexed

    Need to see screen! so far all 10″ tabs minus the iPad, screens are junk! The sammy 7″ has a nice screen. I am so hoping this one is nice too!

    • palomosan

      Did you read the specs, 1280×800 screen resolution and knowing Moto, they'll get the first one right to make a splash.

      • http://Deodexed.com Deodexed

        No I did not, that sounds awesome! where are specs at? Link please!

    • Timoh

      Probably because all those other tablets are a joke.

  • Riverjao

    CAAAAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm am definitely getting this bad boy with the 'ol income tax money! I mean, the wifey has already agreed to it and everything :)

  • ronyc

    If it comes in a 7 inch version and wifi only this will be a nice bday present for self.

    • ckeegan

      7 inch yes, wi-fi only highly unlikely.

  • feztheforeigner

    I want more!!! (info)

  • ckeegan

    honestly, I probably check this site 5 times per day hoping for “Stingray” info. I swear, the next story better be when I can buy one, and that date better be by mid-March at the latest. Seriously, the suspense is killing me.

  • Mkelleygcsi

    i really doubt that there will be a wifi only model of this.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1054710028 Sean Spediacci

    Yeah I want a Wi-Fi only device I don't want to pay monthly data plans for something I can just tether if I'm not near Wi-Fi. This thing is going to cost way molto…

  • Mth2134

    Gonna be pricey. Gonna be real real pricey. That's a whole lot of bang.

    • Ryan C

      yeah like $10,000 :p

    • Timoh

      No, it wont. If they price it higher than the *pad they wont sell. It will be priced in line with other tablets. Like the galaxy.

      • http://twitter.com/BlakeOurso Blake Ourso

        lol…the Galaxy is waaaaaaaaay overpriced ;o

      • http://twitter.com/BlakeOurso Blake Ourso

        lol…the Galaxy is waaaaaaaaay overpriced ;o

      • NewsWorthy

        I agree that the pricing will be much inline with that of the i*ad for exactly the reason you stated. As much as we (consumers) love that it has all this goodness inside, when it comes down to it, we don’t usually wanna pay more and the marketing team knows that. Besides, the i*ad 2 is in the works and that’s what this thing is gonna be running against. Not the current i*ad.

  • Ryan C

    Will definitely be on my April birthday wishlist if there is a wi-fi, no dataplan, version that is $450 or less! Unlikely but lets hope!

    • palomosan

      I doubt that one with WiFi only will cost only $450, just look to all of the other tablets coming out or that are already out.

      Verizon LTE+Motorola+Google= Pricey Awesomeness

      Guys please join me in prayer so Moto won’t put Blur on this beauty.

      • Ryan C

        yeah, i know thats what im hoping for tho, if they even make a WiFi only, which is also doubtful.

        I could care less about Blur…I just want a bootloader that isn’t locked and screwed up. I know this isn’t a ‘handset” for the handset alliance, but still….the X and D2 are still crappy phones and behind the curve with ROMs due to Moto’s ignorance and I’m not buying any more Moto devices with locked bootloaders. If i wanted corporate limitations on my devices I’d be an Apple fanboy.

        • Kashtrey

          I would venture to guess that this will likely be a Google Experience tablet and be the flagship Honeycomb device. Google has said in the past they like working with specific groups of component suppliers and one manufacturer to perfect an OS and it seems that this tablet is it, if Rubin showing one off is any indication of Google’s intention.

          • Kashtrey

            That is to say that it’ll likely be like the Nexus line and be unlocked and possibly get updates straight from Google. Though this is complete speculation and I’m being very optimistic.

          I wouldn’t say the X is crappy. I’m really happy with mine, especially running Apex. Sure it’s only Gingerbread flavored Froyo, but it’s still pretty awesome.

          I agree though on not buying future encrypted devices.

          some people are never happy… go buy a prepay phone and live happy or to make it easier just don’t buy phones…. go use pay phones lol

  • saimin

    Does “headed to Verizon” mean there is a mandatory monthly data contract? No WiFi-only version to compete with the ipad?

    • Anonymous

      I imagine that there will be a wifi only version, maybe not right at first though.

      I’m trying to decide if I want to pay the extra money every month for the data plan…

  • http://twitter.com/Pollita_Droid Erica Marchand

    i think i need to start saving some money because that thing looks insane. I hope its better priced then the tab

  • trumpet444

    10″ screen right? If so, I am definitely saving my money for this one. It'll be rooted quickly (if possible) and then Im sure Koush will have a recovery for it in no time as well

  • jason w.s.

    Friday January 23rd

    • Garrisonjw

      Yeah I noticed that too…. hint hint? Maybe? Hopefully? It'd line up perfectly…

    • BloodiedWraith

      Definitely not a hint… January 23rd is on a Sunday in 2011 =P

    • ckeegan

      too bad January 23rd is a Sunday.

  • StephanC

    Beautiful. I can't wait. :-)

  • Atomic

    Let's hope it can actually connect to an Exchange server… would love to relax and read my email!

    • ckeegan

      I don't have an issue with accessing any of my exchange servers on my Droid 2, so I can't imagine this would be any different.
