Motorola Xoom Launching February 17th for $699 - Best Buy

A leaked internal best buy memo has revealed that the Motorla Xoom tablet (Android 3.0 Honeycomb, is launching on February 17th. This news falls only a day after another leaked internal memo suggested a retail price of $800 for the Motorola Xoom. I will personally wait until some competing tablets from LG and HTC are launched, as well as the new iPad 2, before I go buying one.

UPDATE: A new rumour has suggested the price will be $699, which is a tad bit cheaper than the previously leaded Verizon pricing.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Teaser - Real or Fake Video?

This teaser video included in the comments some rather beefy specs that have been said to be fake.  "Samsung will be introduce the new Galaxy-Tab-2 Tablet at MWC-2011 (Mobile World Congress Conference on Mobile Phones) and it features Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread (upgrade 3.0 Honeycomb), 3D Display (after upgrade to 3.0 Honeycomb), NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and rumors says a 7 inch Super-Amoled Display. We don´t think that this is real because SMD can not mass produce a 7 inch AMOLED yet. " More likely it will wait for Android 3.0 Honeycomb (hopefully) have a Tegra 2 processor, 1 gig of Ram, and the same resolution screen (but perhaps an upgraded version).
