These past couple of days have been flooded with amazing news. Things in the Android world are getting more and more exciting. We are going to have a flood of news for you today... but first up we've got something huge. Andy Rubin attended the D: Get Into Mobile Conference and he brought goodies.

He brought the Nexus S but that was so yesterday ;) Today, the big thing is the 10" tablet that he brought with him. This tablet is manufactured by Motorola and is running Honeycomb. Honeycomb looks substantially different then what we've seen from Android in the past and features a new version of vector based Google Maps that appears to run even faster. The tablet also features an NVidia dual core CPU.

This tablet looks like what we've all been waiting for and expecting from the "2nd" generation tablets.

You can check out the full article at PCMag.com (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2373943,00.asp) and they include 15 pretty blurry pictures. We've mirrored the good ones of the tablet here.

I think the 1st gen tablets, for the most part, are overrated. From my research they seem adequate, but nothing that WOW's me. This tab looks legit!

I saw the samsung gallaxy this weekend at Best buy and it was like having my DX. I couldnt see any differance other then it was a little bigger and it didnt have a phone. Not sure what people are going to use the tablets for. I was wondering if they were going to get sometype of word processor or something o nthem....
