Unofficial Google Android 3.0 port for the Toshiba Folio 100

Toshiba is preparing to launch a new Android tablet with an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and Google Android 3.x operating system.

Google Android 3.0.1 ported to the ViewSonic gTablet

The ViewSonic gTablet is one of the cheapest tablets available with a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer source code now available

Asus has released the kernel source code for the Eee Pad Transformer Android tablet. On the one hand, that’s not too surprising, since the tablet uses open source technology that’s licensed using the GNU General Public License which requires anyone distributing GPL licensed software to make the relevant source code available. What is a little […]
