5 Best Android Tablets of 2011

Consumers try to find the best for their money’s worth. Not everyone knows the operating system of these tablets is one of the factors to look into before spending their dough.

The Android operating system developed by Google Inc. has been making waves due to its immense community of software developers writing applications that expands the functionality of certain devices. Android tablets have been sprouting year after year, comparing screen sizes and processing powers. Let us take a good look on the 5 best Android tablets of 2011:

Windows 8: Microsoft’s New Operating System

Barely two years after the release of its highly successful Windows 7, Microsoft has announced the development of its new operating system, code-named Windows 8.

The operating system is designed to run on different electronic platforms, specifically, desktop computers, netbooks, laptops, tablets, home theatre PCs, and servers.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview hits 1 million downloads

Microsoft’s Windows 8 development team announced on Twitter today that it had reached 1 million downloads of the Windows 8 Consumer Preview within the first 24 hours of its release. This bodes well for the pre-release of Microsoft’s next OS, or at least shows that people are interested in the dramatic changes the system will bring to the table.

Many of the features are still rough around the edges, and the Consumer Preview made available Wednesday was not an official stable release, but anyone who wants to take it for a spin can download it for free from Microsoft’s website.

Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean that 1 million people are actually using the Consumer Preview right now, as people can download the OS any number of times, or download it once and forget about it.

Android 5.0 May Arrive This Fall

Google isn’t offering much information about the forthcoming Android 5.0, even though there are rumors saying that the new version of the operating system will be available on a smartphone by early summer.

Previous talk slated the next version, rumored to be called Jelly Bean, to appear sometime this summer (which seems a little silly given that Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) is still trying the gain some market share over Gingerbread). But now Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google’s vice president of engineering for mobile, is indicating that the new OS might make an appearance this fall.

Will Apple iPhone 5 Arrive This Fall?

Unlike what the previous rumor on Apple’s next generation iPhone claimed, the latest info suggests that the company might be planning a fall launch for the iPhone 5 (or whatever the company might end up calling it), and they will keep this schedule for many years to come, that is a new iPhone every fall.

Ice Cream Sandwich: HTC Thunderbolt, Rhyme, Droid Incredible 2 and Raider

HTC is bringing some very good news to its fans, as the manufacturer has recently announced on its Facebook page that a new series of smartphones is eligible for an Ice Cream Sandwich update.

We’re talking about the HTC Thunderbolt, HTC Rhyme, Droid Incredible 2 and also the HTC Raider, devices that we weren’t sure that they will receive some official ICS love. And since HTC announced fairly recent that devices like HTC Vivid, Incredible S, Desire S and Desire HD will get updated to Android 4 we feared that the manufacturer’s slightly older single-core devices have been forgotten.

This is very good, especially for the HTC Thunderbolt, which had a hard time getting upgraded to Gingerbread and a lot of people were afraid that the HTC Thunderbolt Ice Cream Sandwich update would be a long way should history repeat itself. Fortunately, this is not the case anymore.

HTC Edge May Feature a Voice Activated App Similar to Siri

Last week, a leak came out of the soon to be launched HTC Endeavor or HTC Edge that was available for download. With it came plenty of surprises and goodies such as the many images of the HTC Sense UI 4.0. However, the most interesting part of the leak was the inclusion of the app called the HTC Speak which hints that the company is coming up with a voice and speaking application to their product that can compete with the Siri feature of Apple.
