Upcoming Motorola’s Honeycomb Verizon Tablet Leaked; Device may be Named Stingray

Written By Sam on 27 December 2010

Just recently Google’s Andy Rubin gave a demo of an Android Honeycomb OS based tablet from Motorola at All Things Digital. There are blurry shots of this device circulating all over the net, apparently leaked by a W N Russel, which shows the device with a Verizon logo and the specs were also leaked. These are as follows:

  • Dual core NVidia Tegra 2 T20 graphics processor
  • Gyroscope,
  • 5 MP camera at the back with 2MP cam on the front
  • 1280 x800 resolution, multi touch screen
  • HDMI Out
  • MicroSD Memory card slot
  • Two versions : 7 inch and 10 inch
  • 32 GB storage, 512 MB RAM
  • Micro USB, 3.5mm audio jack
  • Separate versions for CDMA, LTE(3G & faster) and UMTS

The idea of placing a camera up front is a good idea and should enable video chats easily. Also of interest is the graphics processor which should help in gaming and hi-res screen like the Apple devices.

There are reports circulating that the device may be named the Stingray but as yet there is no confirmation on this.

That the Verizon logo is spotted on the device does not come as a surprise due to the tie-ups these two have over the years. There were reports circulating that Verizon would be introducing a tablet soon and these pictures merely support that rumour a little bit more.

It is not known if the device has native support for Verison’s 4G LTE network, but if it does, then people would definitely be more inclined to go in for it.

There are questions as to whether this will compete directly with the iPad. This can only be known once it is released. Can we or can’t we wait!
