Motorola's Android tablet: a peek at the possibilities

Purported photos and limited specs of a Motorola tablet running an Android OS are making the rounds.

Leaked pictures and specifications of a Motorola tablet running Google Android have been doing the rounds online this weekend. The mysterious 3G device has a large display and will run a full suite of Google applications.

Also known as the XT701, the Motorola Android tablet revealed by the Boy Genius Report features a 3.7-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 854 by 480 pixels, and is powered by a Cortex A8 processor. The specs also show support for 3G data (WCDMA / HSDPA 10.2M / HSUPA 5.76M).

Moto's Android tablet is packed with other features as well: 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and flash (unlike previous rumors of an 8-megapixel camera), aGPS, FM radio, WiFi and Bluetooth; and it can store up to 32GB of data (via MicroSD cards).

The Motorola Android Tablet from the Android Central leaked pictures (left) has a slightly unusual hump on the side, which hosts illuminated touch-controls for the camera and photo/video gallery. Dedicated power and camera buttons can be found on the side, along a volume rocker.

If this tablet ever makes it in the U.S., expect a full suite of Google applications running on the Android 2.0 device. Apparently, this tablet will be out first in China. Also, BGR's specs point out that Android Market support is still pending.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
