Motorola's Honeycomb tablet CES teaser features the new red logo
Clay tablets, Motorola, really? The company is obviously alluding, in its CES 2011 teaser, how ancient the current high-end tablets like the iPad and the Galaxy Tab will look like, compared to its own svelte and powerful creation.

Motorola has uploaded a CES 2011 teaser for its Android Honeycomb tablet, pointing out that the iPad is a big iPhone, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab runs Android made for a phone. Nothing wrong with capitalizing on the fact that Moto's slate will probably be the first with Google's tablet-focused Android Honeycomb UI. A direct take on the main competitors is very American and patriotic, we must say, in the spirit of Coke and Pepsi.

It all ends with a busy bee landing on the company's new crimson red logo, stamped on the tablet's pedestal, which suspiciously resembles the Monolith from Arthur Clarke's "2001: A Space Odyssey. It's not something to show in your ancient history class, but is fun to watch nonetheless.

The CES 2011 starts January 6th - considering that Verizon might announce some LTE handsets then, and Microsoft will showcase its Windows tablets onslaught, all indications point to a flying start for the mobile industry next year.

Nice. If I were to be Motorola, I would've made the red M sign look a little bit like a honeycomb.
