With recent changes in the market for Android tablets, it appears there is speculation that Intel may be positioning tablets based on the Atom processor. While Honeycomb has not been fully adapted to the Atom, Intel demoed an Atom driven Android tablet in Bejing this week.Here is some of the article's key content:"So, with tablets based on chips from companies like Nvidia (Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab) and Texas Instruments (PlayBook) not likely flying off the shelf, are Intel's chances any better now? "The door to this market is open. The longer it takes for these other products to get rolling, the more opportunity there is for Intel," said Richard Shim, an analyst at DisplaySearch.
And others see an opening for the world's largest chipmaker. "Though Apple has set the bar, it's not going to be alone in this space. Right now it looks like Android will have the majority of tablet sales(outside of Apple), and Intel has a dedicated team of people to make Android work the best it can on its Atom chips. They have a lot of resources they can apply," said Jack Gold of consulting firm J.Gold Associates, who wrote about this yesterday.And Intel, despite its unimpressive start, has another advantage. Atom is not just another cookie-cutter design from U.K.-based ARM. Intel can bring to bear all of its manufacturing, security, and media processing know-how, according to Gold, who believes it will continue to whittle away successfully at the inherent power-efficiency advantage of ARM chips. "My take is that Intel can capture 20 to 25 percent of that remaining market outside of Apple."
Shim has a few words of caution, however. "It all depends, of course,how well Honeycomb (Android 3.0) runs on Atom," said Shim. "That's a big if." And Shim also warns Intel not to put too many eggs in the MeeGo basket, which is a hard sell to developers in a field crowded with Hewlett-Packard's WebOS and RIM's QNX, in addition to Android." url...What do you think about the possibility of Intel Atom competing with the Tegra 2 processor for Android tablet marketshare? If Google has to support mutliple tablet processors with Honeycomb and eventually Ice cream, will that create more bottlenecks or opportunities and options?
I have a zoom tablet that someone else was using for a while and at times it seems like it defaults to their google account information. Where do I look to clear out their information and make sure my login information is the default information.
I turn on my tablet and the screen freezes saying something about starting troubleshooting or something error. I can not shut off or do anything. it gets real hot and i have to wait till the battery goes dead in order for it to shut off. I bought from Staples and i was 1 day past the 14 day return policy and they refused to help. I only had it 2 weeks and this is the 3rd time it happened
As tablet wars have inevitably emerged and one is compared against another; I have to wonder --how much utility is the tablet getting from those who purchase them. Personally, I've been using it to watch streaming TV to which I don't have over cable, listen to local police & emergency scanners, listen to music from the 'cloud', play a few rounds of "Angry Birds" as well as streaming with "Live Radio". I've actually used the Google Navigator once and it's been very useful when finding a final destination.I don't know if I'm using the device to the "best" of its ability, if not, what else can one do with it? I've recently seen some hardware and software that turns an iPad into an O-scope, are there projects out there fot the Android market following the same lead?
As soon as I start it up to set everything up, the stock launcher force closes. The tablet automatically reboots. Back to the set up screen, another stock launcher force close.I finally get into the home screen and do a data reset. I get back to installing everything I had on my previous xoom and just out of curiousity I ran a linpack. The score comes back at 35 which is pretty normal for a stock xoom.A good 30 minutes later, after doing the normal. Setting up my home screen, browsing, etc, I am noticing a very significant slow-down of the response I'm getting on the xoom. I run another linpack and I have dropped 9 Mflops.
So, did I get another defective unit, or is there something I can do to fix this? Best Buy has no more xoom 3's to replace with this one, so if I have to return it, I will be stuck without a xoom. [removed, considering I have a data plan. Motorola won't replace it, they will only offer to repair it. So, send away my xoom for 6 days and not even for LTE, just to be repaired.I'm pretty stuck on what to do next. I really like the xoom, but I'm not going to keep it if it can't perform.
So i have on my phone the Sirius XM app cause I listen to Howard Stern all the time...I got the XFE wifi with 3.1 market (which is limited I know). But has anyone been able to download the siriusxm app on a tablet? When I search the market I can't find it...
I recently got new Xoom tablet from my senior and I connected it to my Win 7 - 32 bit laptop via a USB cable and it says the device drivers are not installed.I have tried:
1) Enabling USB debugging mode
2) Downloading motohelp drivers from your site the latest one.
3) Switch my tablet on and off and on
4) Restart my machine couple of times.
5) Tried on all the available USB slots on my laptop.
6) Updating drivers via Device Manager ->Update driver.
7) Followed all other solutions which are mentioned on forums and internet.It worked on my Win 7 64 bit in my office but not even getting detected on my IBM T461 Win 7 32 bit laptop.I used USB cable ofmy HTC desire smart phone both times.
Still seems to require the phone fields even though I don't have a Moto phone (just a Wifi Xoom). Also, the serial number selection is not clear since 3G users seem to use the MEID, but I've been asked for my Wifi MAC address before. This time I tried to simply enter my "serial number" as stated in the Xoom status screen. But I can't get past #1 issue above, it is trying to require me to enter a Moto phone as well.
After running an update I found that a new app had been install called Citrix Receiver. I have looked at what this app does, as well as doing multiple google searched for information about it and it is definately something that I will never be using. As such I tried to uninstall it but there does not appear to be any way to do so. I have approached Citrix with this issue, they refered me to my service provider who then refered me to here The other part of the problem with it is that it keeps identifying that there is an update available for the app, which I have not downloaded, and whenever I try to update other apps that I use on a daily basis, skipping the update to Citrix Receiver seems to make the updates to the other apps get skipped as well.Mototola Xoom Tablet Model Number MZ601, running Android Version 3.2, Citrix Receiver App version 2.1
I recently purchased a Motorola Xoom 3g tablet. When I try to boot it up, it does not even stop at the "Choose Country" screen but goes directly into a blue screen with the above mentioned error message. It does not even allow me to connect to my WIFI.
I have a XOOM Wifi Only Edition, When Volume Up button is pressed, the tablet reboots. This started to happen after the ICS update, of late, just for no apparent reason, the tablet reboots when using it. especially playing some games...Now, it is not usable, it just reboots in a loop, sometimes when it reboots sucessfully, its hardly stable for a minute or two then it reboots again.I have not dropped it or it never had any accidents.
There is a lot to like about the tablet, but some features I'm disappointed in. I was looking at the "supported devices" page for the Motocast USB software and it does not include this tablet. At the bottom of the page, it also says "MotoCast USB software works with most but not all of Motorola's Android devices." Is it possible to use it on the FE?
When using Motocast wireless between my XOOM2 and PC (Running windows 7 Home Premium) I can access the music folder, pictures folder and the videos folder ok. But it will access the documents folder. A message is displayed saying the remote computer is not found. But it must be found ok as the other folders mentioned can be accessed.
I'm open for some recommendations for a tablet at or around the $200-$300 price point. I like the Sense GUI so I would prefer htc, I've been looking at the Acer Iconia, but if there's a solid competitor, I'm open to those as well.
I have commented on this many times.. Am I the only one that is seeing this happen.. It doesn't always do it but it will do it in the stock browser and Dolphin HD to.. Instead of the cursor moving backwards to remove misspellings it moves forward.. I've yet found a browser that works with G-Mail properly..Stock browser looks like i'm in a mobile mode but no longer see the dbug function any more.. It looks the same on the browser as using the gmail stock app that came with the Xoom... I hate it.. Not a real Gmail experience to me, too many functions missing.. Anyone have any suggestions as to seeing and using gmail on the Xoom as it would look and perform on the laptop.. HD Browser won't even allow me to reply to an email.. It won't pop up the keyboard no matter what i try, looks good on the browser untill you touch something then everything starts shaking and jerking around
how to get Android Honeycomb updates installed onto my Xoom (WiFi)? I've had is since April 2011 and i'm stuck on version 3.0.1. No matter how many times I check for updates, I never get any! Getting really frustrated now about it. I'm based in the UK and the device is a UK device.
im wondering why my Xoom is not getting the Android 3.2.1 update. im still at 3.1... an update which i got very late.i went to my local Best Buy store and their display Xoom, has the .2.1 version.what can i do to get the updates????
While there are already a few discussions for note taking apps where OneNote is mentioned, i thought this deserved it's own title. MS finally released a working Android app which syncs with Skydrive and gives you full edit ability of OneNote content. I could not find it on the market but it is available here: [URL]
If that link gets cutout, go to the android market under a web browser and search for onenote. So far, it's working on the Xoom LTE without any issues.
