Enterprise Mobility: Samsung Galaxy Tab, Samsung Fascinate, Verizon Droids Sum Up Android Summer
The warmer months winding down can best be described as a Summer of Android, with the consumer electronics maker launching not only its Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.1 smartphones on AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and Sprint, but the Samsung Galaxy Tab computer. This Apple iPad challenger is allegedly coming to Verizon Wireless in the United States later this year. And don't forget the Archos Android tablets coming this month and later this fall. These five devices should give the Galaxy Tab its own stiff challenge. While Samsung has captured the mobile computing world's attention with its big, bold bet on Google's Android platform, Motorola dropped two significant new phones for Verizon's popular Droid smartphone line. The Motorola Droid X and Motorola Droid 2 have proven popular among users. This held particularly true for the Droid X, which sold out across Verizon stores all over the country. The Droid 2 offers a nice advancement from the original Droid model. eWEEK runs through key Android smartphones and tablets in this slideshow.
