Rumor: Motorola Everest Tablet Will See Super Bowl Launch Party?

Ready to crank up the rumor engine?  How does the Super Bowl sound as an outlet for Motorola and Verizon to announce their 10″ Tegra 2 Honeycomb tablet?  Currently codenamed the Everest and Stingray, we fully expect it to have “DROID” branding at launch and according to the tipster that dropped the picture above on the world, February 6th in Dallas might be the day to mark on our calendars.

To see video of the Motorola tablet in action, check out this post.

Thoughts on a February 6th date?

Cheers ckeegan!

    January 23rd, that's when the nfc n afc Conference Championships will be held, maybe that's the real date w should be expecting somethin maybe a complete launch prior to the super bowl, that way everyone can watch the super bowl on it

    • ckeegan

      Interesting also, since that's the date on the image above, even though it's not a Friday.

    Awesome!! But hey Kellex, the new Cowboys stadium isn't in Dallas. Its in Arlington. :) I know bc I live right down the street from it.

    On another note, Imma get one of these…fa sho! Haha

    I thought Honeycomb wasn't being released until end of 2011? What happen to Goggles yearly release cycle?

    • ckeegan

      I would imagine the update cycle will slow down eventually, but they know that they need a tablet-optimized version as soon as possible.

    Well Verizon and the NFL have been pretty tight for a while, so this wouldn't surprise me. It would also be an incredibly smart marketing move and probably the best way to get word about a tablet other than the iPad out there. I just hope they don't rush it to have it done in time.

  • ckeegan

    good luck with that.

    They need to release a wifi only version of this thing.

      i totaly agree, did they announce anything relating to this?
      like did they say they WONT have wifi only one, or anything like that?

      • Hohlraum

        They didn't say they weren't but it almost felt like they specifically DIDN'T mention wifi. :/

    this beast running on 4G? I.CANT.FREAKING.WAIT!!!

    • Michael_NM

      That game last night was brutal. Just be happy you're not a Hawks fan… :-)

      • Timoh

        Come on now, as Hawks fans we kind of expect it, don't we?

        • Michael_NM

          Haha. True… sometimes a regular season victory feels like a Super Bowl win!

    • Mrpicolas

      Lol icant wait to see your bill for 4g data…

      • ckeegan

        You know it will have Wi-Fi too, right? Just turn on the 4G when you need it. Even if you get the $20 1GB tablet plan, you can use it when you're not in range of a free hotspot. Not to mention the fact that it's extremely easy to track data usage nowadays.

          :P

    • kellex

      Yeah what was that Schaub?

      • http://twitter.com/TonyG916 Tony Garza

        yeah…kubiak is a genius. pinned inside the ten, you have the league's leading rusher averaging 5 yards a carry and you opt to throw. good job kubes. rumor mill has bill cowher coming to houston. thank god.

  • El El Kool J

    I guess that big Verizon sponsor contract for NFL is going to pay off than.. I'm sure thats not the only thing they might release during the Super Bowl :P

  • Michael_NM

    Imagine the “Jerry-Tron” dressed up as a giant Droid Tablet…

  • ADD_Boy

    Any idea on how much this is going to cost?

    • NewsWorthy

      If I had to guess, I would say it would be priced in line with the “other” tablet. $499. Just my $.02, not sure what it's worth to you.

      • Timoh

        I agree with you, it's common sense really.

  • Drew_VA

    I guess they might premiere the first commercial then, but I would imagine they're still showing it at CES.

    • ckeegan

      Oh yeah, they're still definitely going to show this off at CES, but I could definitely see the Superbowl as their big Superbowl mass-market ad push.
