Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets to take on iPad 2

On the same day Apple and News Corp debuted The Daily, Google held their own event to once again show off Android 3.0 Honeycomb, a tablet-centric version of their mobile OS that Motorola, HTC, Samsung and others will use to compete with iPad 2.

Android Central has literally a ton of coverage up and from the looks of it Google is trying to be a little more desktop about the tablet than Apple has thus far. We'll see Android 3.0 Honeycomb on the Motorola Xoom and no doubt a plethora of other tablets this year. We'll see iPad 2 this spring and just as certainly an iOS 5 event soon as well.

Check out the Honeycomb event video after the break and let us know what you think. Anything Apple needs to pay particular attention to come iPad 2?

TiPb TV 16: Switching to the Verizon iPhone?

TiPb TV 16: Switching to the Verizon iPhone?

The Verizon iPhone is almost upon us and it looks like many of you are making the big switch! Whether you're leaving the AT&T iPhone or moving from BlackBerry or Droid, you'll have to move your data over and maybe look for ways to keep some of the functionality you're used to. That's the topic for this episode of TiPb TV!

Sure the iPhone is popular and famous for being easy to use but It can be stressful to leave a network or device you're used to and comfortable with and pick up something new. The good news is if you're going from the AT&T iPhone to the Verizon iPhone you're just an iTunes backup and restore away from the simplest switch imaginable. If you're going from BlackBerry or Droid, however, the differences will be more pronounced.

Rene and I go over how cloud services like Gmail can help you get your contacts over (and provide push email, contacts, and calendars!) and App Store apps like Kik Free - (iTunes link], Waze [Free - iTunes link] and others can help replace things like BBM and Google Navigation.

If you're used to rooting on Android or themes on BlackBerry we'll also introduce you to Jailbreak and the new ThemeIt store for iPhone. And if you need any extra help we have Verizon iPhone Forums just waiting for you as well as our TiPb Guides and TiPb Tips sections with tons more info.

So are you ready to make the switch? Watch the video above and let us know how it's going for you in the comments!

First Verizon iPhone arrives?

First Verizon iPhone arrives?

Could this be the very first Verizon iPhone to be held by customer hands? YouTube user billa9668 claims to have picked it up today from the UPS center in Evansville Indiana. Is it for real? It's an iPhone 4 box in a UPS box with what looks like a Verizon pamphlet as wrapping. Beyond that who knows?

Verizon started shipping pre-orders earlier in the week and now so has Apple, with delivery estimates of Monday and Tuesday. We're still tracking shipments in our Verizon iPhone forum so we'll see if more arrive. Meanwhile check out the video after the break and tell us -- do you believe?

[Thanks nicolelk316 and Kyle Dziekan!]

AT&T raising no-commit pricing by $50, matching Verizon?

AT&T raising no-commit pricing by $50, matching Verizon?

If you thought no-commit -- or full -- price for a Verizon iPhone 4 would be $50 more than AT&T, think again as it looks like AT&T is bumping up their no-commit pricing to match.

The new no-commit price for a 16GB iPhone 4 is $649 and a 32GB is $749. If you're after an iPhone 3GS, however, the price has dropped $25 to $474. Go figure.

So if you're paying full price on either carrier in the near future at least you can take some small comfort in knowing it's the same price on both networks.
