Galaxy Tab Production Reduced

Rodman & Renshaw's Ashok Kumar said in a recent report to clients that the Galaxy Tab is not selling well. "Poor sell through of Galaxy [Tab] has caused Samsung to dramatically revise down production volumes," he wrote. "And on Dell's Tablet [the Streak], less said the better."galaxy tab production reduced
Kumar concludes, "We do not see Tablets go the way of netbooks or a flash in the pan. But if current trends continue, the Tablet market may not end as much more than iPads or a tweener product between smart phones and next generation thin-and-light notebooks a la MacBook Air."

Arm is apparently in talks with search engine Google to replace the Intel Atom chips on its Google television with something more armful.
Brown said Arm latest processors are less expensive and require less power than Intel's Atom processor. "If Google TV is to be mainstream, it must be built on a lower power system... on lower cost technology," he said.

Toys r US nebtook

Toys R Us appears to be selling a 7″ $139 Sylvania tablet running Android 2.1.  You may want to be cautious of this one though as the ad is a little misleading.
It says “thousands of apps available” but we all know this thing won’t have the market on it.  Google has only approved the Galaxy Tab running Android 2.2 for market access, so unless you plan on side-loading everything, think again.  Oh, and it also says that it includes “Flash”, but we’re pretty sure that almost any version of 2.1 especially Sylvania’s hackjobbed one isn’t going to run Flash on anything.
