Droid Report: Behemoth 22-inch "tablet"

In a world where devices are constantly getting bigger, ViewSonic has blown the competition out of the water with its behemoth 22-inch “tablet”

Huawei is set to launch its very own user interface in July, named 'Emotion UI’. As a direct rival to HTC's Sense and Samsung's TouchWiz, Huawei has said that its new user interface will wear a simple look, with smart additions throughout. Although nothing has been confirmed, many believe that Huawei's delayed release of its flagship Ascend D Quad device will now include the new UI.

Budding gamers will be able to flex their thumbs a little more with the new Nyko controllers. Developed as part of a partnership between chip manufacturer NVIDIA and Nyko, the range of controllers will be made exclusively for all TegraZone titles. The controllers come in two very distinct sizes, with the PlayPad Pro a more robust and traditional controller, with its array of shoulder and face buttons, and the smaller PlayPad coming with a carry case and foldable stand.

In a world where devices are constantly getting bigger, ViewSonic has blown the competition out of the water with its behemoth 22-inch 'tablet'. The VCD22 is part tablet, part monitor, but will run Ice Cream Sandwich alongside a 1GHz dual-core processor. There are three full-size USB slots, micro HDMI and micro SD ports, as well as 1.2-megapixel camera. There's no news on pricing or a solid release date as of yet, but don't expect to be carrying it around on your daily commute.

On a similar but smaller note Acer has unveiled another tablet in its Iconia range, this time one that looks set to compete with Amazon's Kindle Fire. The Iconia A110 will have a quad-core processor, a seven-inch display and run Ice Cream Sandwich, and it will be priced at a touch under $200. Information on availability around the world has not yet been announced, but the device marks another step in the gradual move that Android tablets are making from the premium market to a more affordable price point, without compromising on either the power or the quality.

On the app front Instapaper has become perhaps the last of the big name iPhone apps to have made its way to Android. Instapaper is a simple app that enables users to save long form web articles to read at a later date while offline. The app became one of the most popular news-related apps on iOS, along with similar apps from its genre such as Read It Later which are already available for Android phones.
