  Acer has unveiled their take on the 7-inch Android tablet, and the Iconia Tab A110 will be available October 30 for $229.99. The 7-inch form factor has turned out to be fairly popular, but is there room for one more tablet with an entry-level price? We think there is, and this one has one thing going for it that plenty of you will love -- a microSD card slot. The full specs are as follows -- Tegra 3, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage and a 1024x600 display, all running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The A110 weighs in at 0.86 pounds and is less than .5 inches thick, and certainly sounds ultra-por

Randall Stephenson at a global conference of the Milken institute talked about AT & T. According to reports of New York Times, he said that he had only one regret that he was first to introduce and support the cellular carrier with iPhones.He said that the model introduced was a variable pricing model. Following are the lines which Stephenson said in his interview.Quote:“My only regret was how we introduced pricing in the beginning, because how did we introduce pricing? Thirty dollars and you get all you can eat,” he said in the on-stage interview at the Milken Institute’s Glob

al Conference on Wednesday. “And it’s a variable cost model. Every additional megabyte you use in this network, I have to invest capital”.He specified his worries about the different applications such as imessage bite in AT&T’s tradition messaging revenue stream and talked about history of partnership between AT&T and apple which coalesced few years back. He also described how the usage of data increased 20,000 percent from the year 2008 when apple store was initiated to 2011.In view of that fact, AT&T has stopped providing unlimited data usage to their customers as well as to throttling users who have been using these plans for a very long time. Stephenson was also concerned about the effect of Skype on existing models of AT&T. His concerns can be well judged by following words which he said in his conference.Quote:“You lie awake at night worrying about what is that which will disrupt your business model,” he said. “Apple imessage is a classic example. If you’re using imessage, you’re not using one of our messaging services, right? That’s disruptive to our messaging revenue stream.”In spite of all these concerns AT & T is very successful in gaining profitable iPhone customers. In the previous quarter AT&T enjoyed profit of $ 3.58 billion from $29 billion sales.Stay tune with us for more about AT&T in future and don’t forget to like our Facebook Profile-AT&T
As some of you may already be aware, Kyocera this week announced a pair of new Android smartphones. One one hand we have waterproof Hydro and on the other, the sliding QWERTY Rise. Although the company has yet to announce any carrier or pricing details, they are letting CTIA attendees play with the devices and get a sense of things to come. I spent a few minutes toying with each and found them remarkably average, but in the best sense possible.
It will be average consumer types that push Android forward and beyond the fifty percent market share. It is average users that buy the $50-$100 s

martphones and replace their feature phones with something a little smarter.  Kyocera aims to place both of their new Android phones in this space.
I like the idea of a waterproof phone that runs the latest version of Android, but isn't also a rugged model. Plenty of people will drop their phones in water or get them wet, not many will need the protection against sand and tornado winds. The Hydro is a decent looking phone for its class but falls short of impressing. The specs are middle of the road at best and the handset is hardly a looker. That said, it's the kind of phone that you end up seeing everywhere because it was the right price. It's not thin, but it certainly ain't a fatty.
The Rise is even more of a middle of the pack than the Hydro, what with its generic design cues and coloring. The four row QWERTY keyboard is not the worst I've seen but I feel like there might have been room for a fifth row. Nevertheless, the Android 4.0 OS and minimal set of pre loaded apps ensures these two are not immediately irrelevant.

Priced at $50 or so, both of these should do well. Much higher and people will gravitate to bigger brands and more trusted names. All things considered, these two are average at best, but way better than the dual screen stuff from them a little over a year ago.
