    Default Motorola Calls iPad "Just a Giant iPhone"
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=quI2I8wLPdc&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - Tablet Evolution presented by Motorola[/ame]


    Motorola threw down yesterday with a new teaser video for their mysterious upcoming 10-inch Android tablet. Called "Tablet Evolution," the video takes shots at both the iPad - which is derisively referred to as "a giant iPhone" and the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which runs a version of Android OS meant to run on a phone. The video ends with a shot of an object under a curtain, and a bee (presumably representing "Honeycomb," the made-for-tablets version of Android) buzzing around Motorola's new red logo, followed by the words "CES 2011," indicating the device will be released at the Consumer Electronics Show next month.

    Nothing is known for sure about the Motorola tablet, which was briefly shown off by company vice president Andy Rubin at the All Things Digital: Dive Into Mobile conference in San Francisco a few weeks ago. It is believed to have a 10-inch, 1200-by-800 display, a 1GHz Tegra 2 T20 processor with 512 MB of RAM, 32 GB of built-in flash, and support for up to 32 GB of external storage via its microSD slot. Rumors have also suggested a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, an HDMI out port, a microUSB port and a gyroscope. It's expected to be carried on Verizon Wireless, which has signaled that it will announce LTE-compatible Android devices at CES on January 6. A blurry picture of the Motorola tablet in Verizon livery was also leaked this month, further bolstering that rumor.

    Apple has a number of competitors queued up to be the "iPad killer," but up until Motorola none have been able to match it in terms of screen real estate. If Honeycomb is able to overcome the limitations of existing Android OSes it may be a serious challenger. However, there is a real hurdle to overcome: Apple's head start puts it on track to sell as many as 43 million iPads next year. Is there a market for that many giant Droids?

    Well said mate! The iPad may be whatever anyone chooses to call it...and that's exactly what apple intended.

    The iPad is many things to many people as it fulfils various needs. It may be a 'giant iphone' to some, but it sure is better than anything moto-copycat can ever hope to come up with!

    Those (samsing, blueberry, moto-stationary) who neither have the imagination nor impetus to create such a "magical" (lol) product but only come up with wannabe copies, can rejoice in the knowledge that they're helping keep competition alive and ultimately making the iPad even better and untouchable!!

    It's just a big iPhone, but like the commercial says, it's also a big iPhone, that can be good and/or bad.

    They called it a giant iPhone, because they couldn't come up with a different phrase. It's been called a giant iPhone since March, come up with a new name, then use it in your commercial.

    Technically it's a Giant iTouch since it cant make phone calls if it's not on 3G or Wifi while the iPhone uses all that and edge

    I've always thought that type of marketing was pretty corny. It's like a man asking another woman "what's he got that I haven't got?



    I say spend more time noting what YOUR product can DO, not what you feel the competition CAN'T...especially since any product has the potential to suck, regardless of how much the other products do OR don't suck.

    Errrr...sorry, but the iPad is nothing like a big iPhone. At all. A big, glorified, practically useless, iPod touch? Yes. An iPhone? No. I wish people would stop comparing the two.
