Matt Burns writes about the Motorola Droid tablet.

“Hot in ’11: Motorola knows how to make Android handsets. The hardware is top-notch. So is the marketing. Motorola and Google have been said to be working closely on the tablet so it should correct many of the downsides of the current Android tablets. Hopefully both companies follow Apple’s lead by creating a product centered around the user experience, not hardware specs – but having a Tegra 2 in there will be nice.”

Leena Rao writes that Motorola subsidiary, Motorola Mobility has acquired Zecter, a cloud storage start up company.

“Zecter is best known for developing cloud streaming and storage services ZumoDrive and ZumoCast. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but we hear from sources that Motorola is buying all of Zecter’s products, technology and the team including founder David Zhao. Motorola says that Zecter’s technologies will be used to ‘enhance Motorola Mobility’s mobile content experience’ by allowing users to access their content on a variety of devices.”

Google’s Honeycomb Android tablet release slated for March?

Thomas Ricker shares details about Google’s Honeycomb Android tablet.

“The only official timeframe we have for an Android 3.0 Honeycomb release is sometime ‘next year.’ A little too vague for our liking and for a seemingly infinite list of manufacturers chomping at the bit to release their fully sanctioned Android tablets onto the world. Now DigiTimes narrows things down a bit with an off-the-cuff comment about MSI preparing to sell its Tegra 2-based tablets in April or May ‘after Google releases Android 3.0 in March.’ Of course, a March release seems almost definite what with Acer hoping to ship its tablets with Honeycomb in April as well. Hopefully we’ll get this confirmed at CES in early January.”
