Motorola Honeycomb tablet teaser video slags off iPad and Galaxy Tab

A teasing video from Motorola doesn't actually show off its new 10-inch tablet computer, but it does diss the iPad and Galaxy Tab, among others.

Motorola is getting into the Christmas spirit by trash-talking the actual ten commandments, along with the Rosetta Stone, the Apple iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Oh no it di'nt!

The teaser video for Motorola's as yet unnamed tablet also shows a buzzing bee nuzzling up against the company's logo, in a nod to the fact that it will have the next version of Android, codenamed 'Honeycomb'.

Googleboss Andy Rubin showed off a prototype of the tablet earlier this month, demonstrating the update to Google Maps which dropped on Android phones recently.

Motorola has confirmed it will unveil the tablet at the CES trade show in January, but based on leaks and rumours, we're expecting it to have a 10-inch screen, a 5-megapixel camera on the back, and a 2-megapixel camera on the front for video calls. Inside, we're looking for a 1GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and 32GB of storage.

The tablet's Android operating system means it'll have access to apps from the Android Market and support Flash in the Web browser.

Based on the video below, we also expect it not to be made of a giant carved stone tablet, or solely support hieroglyphics.

Why do so many of us still buy cars with off-road abilities?

Cities are full of cars like the Subaru XV that can drive off-road but will never see any challenging terrain. What drives us to buy cars with these abilities when we don't really need them most of the time?
