Tough Android Tablet To Be Beta Tested By Motorola

"We've been keeping our eyes on Motorola's plans to sink its claws into the enterprise market for at least the past couple of months, and it looks like the company is ramping up its efforts with a rugged Android tablet fit for the workplace."

Of course Motorola couldn't keep themselves from developing an Android tablet as tablets become more and more popular. Word has it that Motorola will be beta testing a new durable tablet that will withstand drops up to four feet, water splashes and excessive dust and temperatures. Along with those features, the tablet has been rumored to include Gingerbread, a 7 inch screen, rear and front facing cameras, 1 GB RAM and Bluetooth and USB connectivity. Sounds like Motorola is trying to appeal to customers who live rugged lives or have jobs outside of the office.

SoftMaker Office Headed to Android

"The public beta test for SoftMaker Office for Android will start soon. We spent the last few months not only to simply port our software to Google Android, but also to design a new user interface that is finger-friendly and perfectly tuned to Android. We have decided to use native Android control elements for the user interface (menus, dialogs, toolbars). As a result, SoftMaker Office is a true Android application with true Android feeling."

If you're a fan of SoftMaker Office on other platforms, you'll want to check out their public beta for Android. Seems like we have a lot of office suites on Android, but if it's a quality product (like I suspect it is!), then the more the merrier!

ZDBox: For Android-loving Control Freaks

"ZDbox for Android is an 'all-in-one' toolbox app that makes it easy to find out what's going on in your phone and gives you full control of different tasks."

This looks really cool. The application is still in beta, but seems to be stable and quite useful. If you're a control freak when it comes to your device this will come in very handy. You can lock apps that you don't want others getting access to when they inevitably want to check out your phone and you can even batch uninstall applications. It's free and should work wherever the little green robot does. Does this look useful to you? Is it something that would get a spot on your device? Click on the "Discuss" link and let us know.

Dolphin Browser is Coming to Android Tablets

"Today, one of our favorite Android apps -- Dolphin -- launched a private beta for its new tablet version.Called Dolphin Browser for Pad, the big brother of Dolphin HD looks to be every bit as customizable and packs a similar array of kicked-up browser functionality."

I've been impressed by the speed of Dolphin HD and I think the interface is great. They also have an innovative and customizable gesture control implementation that could really improve your browsing experience. As good as the phone version is, I'm sure Dolphin for Pad will be excellent. It's great to see there will be another browser option for Android based tablets! What's your favorite Dolphin feature you'd like to see on the tablet version?

Latest Trillian for Android Adds New Sort Options, Faster Notifications

Posted by Don Sorcinelli in "Android Software" @ 08:00 AM

"Build 110 is now available for all testers. New features include the ability to group your contact list by service or to run in a "no groups" mode. Also, users of 2.2 can now benefit from Google's C2DM service, which means your notifications should arrive almost instantly! If you're on 2.2 and want to try this, make sure the battery saving preference is enabled to get started. As always, we've also fixed a number of bugs in this build."

When I first heard that the multi-protocol instant messaging client Trillian was available for Android, I admit it - I was overjoyed. Even in it's beta form, it is perhaps the best application in it's class. The latest build adds more great features and bug fixes.

You can download the latest beta directly to your device by using your web browser and going to http://www.trillian.im/get/android. Just remember - to install this application (which is not being downloaded from the Android Market), you will need to change most device's default security settings to "Allow Unknown Sources".
