Disney Apps

Bart Decrem, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Mobile, announced that three popular apps from the entertainment giant are coming to Android this spring. Radio Disney allows kids and tweens to "talk back" to the pop station with shout-outs and song requests. Jelly Car is a "physics" tap-and-pinch driving game, and Tap Tap Revenge is a game similar to Nintendo's Guitar Hero that requires players to tap a stream of buttons as pop songs play.

Devices powered by Honeycomb will likely hit the market around the same time as Apple's refresh of the iPad, setting off a second round in the tablet war that Apple has so far easily dominated.

"The tablet market looks promising from a top-line forecast in 2011," said mobile-devices analyst Jeff Orr of ABI Research. "My concern is how the feature set will shake out this year -- so many new vendors and products that will likely compete on price and features. This, in turn, will hurt the average selling price and the value-add features, including GPS, 3G/4G connectivity, and ruggedization. All of these cost money and will be cut in favor of a 'race to the bottom' cost."
