08/16/2011, Back in July we reported that the ViewSonic ViewPad 10pro was spotted at the FCC. If you liked what you saw back then, the good news is that ViewSonic has come out and officially announced the ViewPad 10pro, which will be going on sale later this month.
08/12/2011, If you’ve ever felt like the 10″ display of an iPad was too small for you, how about getting a 40″ iPhone instead? Well since Apple doesn’t make or sell those, a designer has come up with his own creation instead. Called the iTableous, this massive contraption resembles some sort of tomb with an oversized iPhone for a lid.

07/21/2011, It has been reported by Strategy Analytics that in Q2 2011, Microsoft has seen more tablets shipped with its operating systems than RIM did with its own tablet. Now this wouldn’t have been surprising if it was comparing Apple’s iPad against the BlackBerry PlayBook but in this case we’re talking about tablets running Microsoft’s operating system: Windows 7, which wasn’t even designed for tablets in the first place.
07/15/2011, When it comes to the world of tablets these days, it seems that the Android operating system has the most “fans”, as many hardware manufacturers have adopted the free operating system, hence helping keep the costs of the tablet device as low as possible. The iPad 2 from Apple needs no introduction, while the BlackBerry PlayBook is struggling although we do not have any concrete data on how the HP […]
07/13/2011, One of the main reasons a lot of people didn’t upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista was mainly due to the high system requirements needed to run the operating system.

07/12/2011, Windows XP users, if you thought that you could get away with running Windows XP for the next 10 years, you’re in for a disappointment, as Microsoft has recently come out and said that support for Windows XP will be ending in less than 1,000 days. What this means is that come somewhere in early 2014, Microsoft would have hoped you moved on to Windows 7 (or Windows 8, whatever […]
06/09/2011, If you thought the Dell Streak 7 wasn’t a large enough tablet, you’ll be glad to know that Dell has a larger tablet in the works.

Unfortunately, Dell will be releasing the tablet in China first due to Dell’s growing […]
05/30/2011, The invasion the tablets into the world of consumer electronics continues from where CES left off earlier this year, with Gigabyte being part of the parade by rolling out their S1080 tablet device. This will take the road less traveled since it is powered by Windows 7 instead of the Android operating system, running on an Intel Atom N550 1.66GHz dual-core processor while being accompanied by 2GB RAM, sporting a […]
05/26/2011, One of the biggest complains people have about the Windows 7 operating system has been its lack of tablet-optimization. Sure there are some included features in Windows 7 tablets that try to improve things, but in the end, it is still Windows 7, and most of the programs on it are designed to be used with a keyboard and mouse combo. For example, take the minimize, restore/maximize and close buttons […]
