Samsung Android Event November 8th in NYC: "

This image has no alt text

Samsung has been tearing it up with Android announcements lately and it looks like their streak of robotic sweetness will continue. They wowed us with a multi-carrier launch of the Samsung Galaxy S, launched the most impressive Android Tablet yet with the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and now they’ve announced a November 8th mobile event that will pretty obviously be all about Android:


The image features Android Application icons getting sucked into a vortex that is seemingly surrounded by stock prices and random numbers. I’m not exactly sure what Samsung will be announcing and the only thing they had to say about the matter, in addition to the above image, was:

Join Samsung Mobile for the unveiling of a new Android device.

Based on the image I thought perhaps Samsung would be announcing a store or marketplace of sorts but if they’ll be announcing a new Android DEVICE than it looks like we’ve got a LOT more to which we can look forward. I’m really excited because the holiday season seems to always have the hottest tech and the biggest surprises.

What do you think Samsung will announce?

Android 3.0 due to start hitting tablets in December ahead of January launch

Android 3.0 due to start hitting tablets in December ahead of January launch: "Android 3.0 due to start hitting tablets in December, launch in JanuaryA holiday tradition? Making things out of gingerbread, and Google is doing its part to keep that practice alive according to a report stating Android 3.0 is set to hit some tablets this December. Those will just be early samples destined only to light up the eyes of engineers who've been very, very good this year, but the rest of us naughty boys and girls will get to see those slates when they launch to the public in January. We hear there's a little electronics show happening that time of year, and supposedly HTC, Samsung, and Motorola will be showing their Gingerbread tablets there, amongst others (but not Lenovo, apparently). We can't wait to get a taste.

Update: Thanks to James for pointing out that it's still unclear whether 3.0 is going to be Gingerbread or, indeed, the truly tablet-minded Honeycomb release we're really waiting for. This report states specifically that 3.0 is hitting tablets in December, with 4.0 later in 2011. Is that Gingerbread and Honeycomb, or Honeycomb and Ice Cream? Also, is anyone else hungry?
