Apple iPad users beware, there is a new kid about to be on the block from Google and Motorola. The Tablet wars are about to take place for the Christmas holiday season. The first threat to the dominance of the iPad took place just about a month ago when T-mobile became the first to carry the Samsung Galaxy Tablet. Verizon and Sprint followed with their own launch of the Galaxy Tab days later.
The Galaxy Tab did not sell as big as the iPad when it debuted but it has impressed many of those who made the purchase. I debated on snatching one up myself when I looked at the Galaxy Tab for the first time at my T-mobile carrier. I too was impressed with both the size and the features. It was the price that kept me from purchasing it. The 399.00 price was still a little too steep for me. Let one of these babies get to under the $300.00 mark and I am SOOOOO There..;-)
Google has now launched the Chrome OS and the newest version of Android 2.3 “Gingerbread” is due to come out by the end of this month, if not sooner. Take a look at the video below and be one of the first to see the new Motorola Android device due out very soon.
So what say you, when it comes to these new Tablet devices. Have they made you get off the fence when it comes to choosing one of them over the Apple iPad? Or are you waiting patiently for iPad 2 to make its debut in the near future?

More than $100,000 of checks have been received by PayPal’s new app in just the first 36 hours.
PayPal Mobile’s iPhone app now allows you to transfer checks into your PayPal balance for free by simply taking a photo with your iPhone. Once you’ve photographed your check, just hold on to it for 15 days and then you can throw it away.
My fellow Solopreneurs will love this new feature and the fact that you can skip your next trip to the bank when you receive a check. My only dilemma is that this great application is not available for the Android platform at this time and there is no word as to when it will be.
I have been a huge fan and user of the PayPal service for almost 12 years and I am not sure what I would do without such a service. But I have to say I don’t understand why PayPal and many other companies out there leave us Android users out in the cold when creating these great applications. I guess this will be the subject of another blog post in the future.
So to all my fellow Solos who have iPhones I highly suggest that you download and use this application. What better way to accept and deposit checks into your account so you get paid faster.
I and my fellow Andoid users will have to wait yet again for the release of another very useful application.
PayPal, I still love you but I would appreciate more Android Luv when it comes to awesome apps like this one.
Until next time my Solos
