Video: Verizon Mystery Honeycomb Tablet is Back and as Confusing as Ever

The mystery tablet that appeared for all of 5 minutes yesterday in a new Verizon ad is back for everyone to see.  You’ll finally get a good look at the Honeycomb lock and home screens we mentioned yesterday, but now that we’ve had even more time to check out it, we’re really just think it’s a mock-up and is 100% not-real.  No branding on the front, no front camera, and with a Verizon logo pressed firmly into its backside, we doubt that this will ever become something on a store shelve.

Feel free to check it out.  


Cheers CG!

    oh wow thats fake… the screen has been dropped in…. so ya this is prolly just a mock up…. however, this wouldbt be the first time verizon has dropped in a fake screen on a device that hasnt been debugged yet…

    On a side note, verizon could be going for a new look as far as there logo near the bars, but it interrupts the flow of the UI so hopefully not.

    “Shelve” is a verb. “Shelf” is a singular noun. “Shelves” is a plural noun.

    To me it looks similar to the HTC tablets. If you look at the HTC View/Flyer it has a similar backplate and camera placement. This could be the HTC Puccini as it also shares the form-factor curves edges to the Tablet shown in the video. The Puccini is HTC’s new 10″ Tablet coming this Fall.

    Shold have said “Tablet simulated: Between us and moto we haven’t yet fully crippled this unit, but stay tuned lemmings!”

  • I wondered why all of the doors where flying off until they said the line at the end.

  • Sammyguyana

    it’s the new 4g tab on verizon that will be rumored, leaked, delayed indefinitely, withdrawn, re-vamped, upgraded, announced, delayed again, pre-ordered, released finally, but only 100 were made, and a docking accessory will come out later, oh, and by the way, won’t REALLY have 4 g until the next tab comes out, with a quad core processor!!

  • It makes perfect sense for Verizon to use a mock tablet in their commercial. Otherwise, they would have had to pay for rights to show the tablet, and they would have had to use the name. This is just a pure Verizon commercial.

  • zdroid

    Over at Android Central they say its actually a XOOM 4G that is in testing within verizon.

  • Anonymous

    Looks like the same “Rule the Air” campaign they’ve been pushing forever now.  Probably just proving that Verizon has tablets now…

  • Want_to_buy_a_tablet

    So which is best, Acer Iconia 16 GB tablet or Asus Eee Pad Transformer 16 GB?  Also, is the processor in the Acer Iconia faster than the Xoom (too expensive for me)?

  • more importantly, who’s the “actress”

  • Rich

    I don’t know about you.. But there is only one, maybe two but only one I can think of that is a tablet that looks and acts like the one in the commercial… The galaxy tab… yes Verizon will take all markings off but themselves because of legal issues and to not let everyone know what is coming next if this is a new device… The galaxy tab is the only tablet I know of to look and act and to be held like a phone… vertical… all other tablets are landscape oriented…

  • That’s not Honeycomb, the notification bar isn’t in the right place.  Unless it’s Ice Cream Sandwich, I think it’s just a poor rendering of Android.

    • Guest

      Hence the “screen images simulated”

      • Which is part of my point – that this is a witch hunt and is probably just supposed to be a dummy generic tablet.

  • Dan

    The video isnt for a new tablet.  The video is simulating the tablet to tell people that Verizons network is the only network powerful enough for your Tablet to run on.  At least that is the last staement the guy said at the end of the video.

    Ohh great, another $600 tab that will sell 300 units!

    • Anonymous

      $600? it will be $799 again like the xoom lol

  • Downloaded this video so if it ever needs uploading again I’ve got it.

    • Davros

      lol, I did the same thing.

  • EC8CH

    “screen image simulated”

    …hell the whole tablet is simulated 😛

    • Jeremy Gentry

      Agreed! FAKE FAKE FAKE! LOL

  • MFG

    As I said yesterday, it’s just a dummy device for the commercial. 

    • bad choice of a dummy than haha should have researched a little bit more ha

  • Mctypething

    Who cares…..

    • Anonymous

      You, apparently.  Enough to open the post and comment on it, anyway, instead of just ignoring it like you would’ve done if you truly didn’t care.

      • Mctypething

        Yeah, you’re right. It was tough to click the mouse, scroll down to the comments and type two words out. Whew…..that took up a lot of time, energy, and thought process.

        • Pat Morton

          yes. it did. It did take you alot more time then it would’ve taken you to just scroll right past it. but you cared enough to click on the post, scroll down, type a comment, and click to post it. 4 steps required for that but only 1 step if you truly didnt care.

    She can unlock my mystery tablet any day.

    • Would you like to dock with her too?

      • Anonymous

        probably has a fullsize hdmi interface, not interested…

  • Supposing it isn’t fake…It will most likely be announced, then delayed 2 or 3 times before it gets released. 


    • Pat Morton

      you forgot about the price drop and the price increase

    To set if free with out 4G. I mean its coming we swear!!

  • Anonymous

    well judging by the weirdness of the video it probably has something to do with the 4g network. or am i the only one that thinks the 4g commercials are weird?

  • Apearms

    A “generic” tablet to show how powerful the network is.

    • it probably is but it does strike an odd resemblance to the hp touchpad

  • I think it is bad photoshop looks like a verizon branded HP touchpad

  • Hmmm yeah I have not seen that one around unless its the one being released by the Indian company for $35

  • Koob33

    That just blew my mind Kellex 😛

  • FortitudineVincimus

    They have been showing TV ads with this for weeks in my area.

    anyway.. who says it couldn’t just be a fake CGI
