Honeycombs and bees share the most intimate of relationships, a fact borne out again in the recent video that Motorola has come out with. Touted to be one of the first tablets to run the only Android version aka Honeycomb, designed exclusively for tablet like devices, the new Motorola tablet is expected to heat things up at the upcoming CES. And the latest video can be seen as preparing the ground for the grand unveiling of the tablet there.
Showcasing a bee along with a couple of tablets, the video attempts to start off from a very early stage where a stone slab with weird inscription on them is shown and seems to disregard the already decade old effort that mankind has put into tablets. The video aims to bring forth the history of tablets so far and points out the major defects each of them suffers. For instance, the tablets used by the ancient Egyptians suffered from poor mobility as they were too heavy to be carried around, made of a solid block of stone as they are while tablet from the Mayan civilization is depicted to have a self destruct feature built into it that won’t exist post 2012. And this also includes the iPad or the Galaxy Tab, the only two tablet devices that have found favor among consumers among the plethora of tablets that have come and gone without a trace.
In fact, the video also takes a dig at the iPad equating the device as nothing more than an oversized iPhone while the Galaxy Tab is snubbed as a device as it runs the Android, an operating system meant to be used on smartphones.
All of this surely makes one really eager to see what Motorola has in store to add to mankind’s great tablet history. Thankfully, the wait won’t be long. The CES starts Jan 6th.
