Getting the latest version of Android on your device is one of the most passionate needs of the Android community.

Apple To Beat HP In Mobile PC Sales

Apple’s ascendency looks to continue in 2012. If the hugely popular iPad is categorized as a portable computer, it’ll mean that Apple will bump HP off its top spot of lead mobile PC vendor. With sales expected to hit 60 million next year, and the total amount of tablets shipped only a little above that at 80 million, the potential for the change in power is certainly possible.

The revelation comes from industry sources who spoke with DigiTimes. They said Apple is expected to ship a total of 60 million iPads in 2012, out of 80 million total tablets shipped.

Acer Working On Slideout Android Tablet, Yay!

I am a huge fan of tablets, and am also a huge fan of the Android operating system, so when I hear that there is a new Android tablet, I go a little crazy. According to Digitimes, Acer is working on a slideout Android tablet. No clue on whether the QWERTY keyboard will be similar to a laptop keyboard or not, but I am really hoping it will have laptop-style keys.

Aside from having a 10″ screen, we are told that it will be fueled by an ARM processor and will be manufactured by Compal Electronics. Although we are unsure of the exact storage, I would guess that the base model will come with 16GB of storage and start around $450.

Archos’ New Family Of Tablets, Coming Soon

Supposedly, whatever is going down will be revealed on June 23rd, so stay tuned later this month!

Qualcomm Announces Dual Core 1.5GHz Mobile CPU

Qualcomm has shown off its dual-core mobile processor this week at Computex. Qualcomm’s pride and joy 1.2GHz processor has received a refresh and now boasts speeds of up to 1.5GHz. Under the names: MSM826, MSM8860, and QSD8672, the zippy mobile processors are expected to hit smartphones later this year.

Many of the current mobile manufacturers are already designing their phones based around the processors (and we are hoping larger battery capacities too!). In a world where two cores are better than one, this will mean for better mobile gaming, multimedia enjoyment, and faster “everything” on your mobile device.
