Drop Test Of The Galaxy Tab, iPad2, And Motorola Xoom – Prepare To Cringe

What happens when you drop a Samsung Galaxy Tab, an iPad2, and a Moto XOOM? Some people would cringe, some would laugh, some would even cry. Well the lovely people over at ElectronicsBreak decided to see what would happen when you drop these tablets waist high onto a marble looking sidewalk. Unfortunately, there are no winners in this match up. Let’s just say I won’t be walking around with my XOOM in hand downtown anytime soon after watching this. Who would have known this would be a great way to sell warranties for your tech. Great video after the “break”! (See what we did there, again?)


Honeycomb Quickly Becoming an Unofficial Reality on the Samsung Galaxy Tab

Admit it Galaxy Tab owners, that picture above is quite beautiful.  Honeycomb, booted up and looking as pretty as you would have expected?  Now, if only it was available to everyone, we’d be having one hell of a Friday.  We’re getting close though, according to XDA member spacemoose1 who is leading the charge to get Android 3.0 on a device that may not see it otherwise.  Sure, Samsung claimed back in 2010 that it would be updated to something at some point, but I’m willing to bet Fascinate owners have an opinion on that.

We’re definitely getting close, although there are still some things to be worked out on this attempt including wi-fi.  So don’t expect to have it up and running on your device today, but instead applaud a great step towards HC goodness.   (more…)
