Two HP Slate Tablets Hit The FCC
The folks over at the FCC have been on the receiving end of a couple of tablets from HP, which means we could be looking at new Slates in the coming holiday season. For starters, there is the HP Slate 10 HD tablet that will run on a Marvell PXA986 processor, where it will be accompanied by a 1,280 x 800 pixel display. Hmmm, that does not sound quite right, […]

HP Slate 2 takes over the Slate 500
I know that a number of professionals were interested in the HP Slate, and it so happens that it just got a refresh today with… the HP Slate 2. From the outside, it mostly looks the same, but there is now a 32GB option (the maximum is 64GB), the battery life has gained a theoretical 30mn and Swype for windows has been integrated, which is great because the default windows […]

E-Note does what it says – it takes notes.
If you’re looking for a simple notepad which you can use to store one page of notes, has the solution for you. Called the E-Note, it literally does what it name says: it takes notes. But what it doesn’t tell you is that it can only store one page of notes at a time. The E-note can store a grand total of one page at any given time.

Gigabyte tablet arrives at the FCC
The tablet market is certainly one that is maturing, although at the moment it seems that the Apple iPad (with its sequel) and Android-powered ones are the ones to rule the roost, while those which are powered by Windows 7 tend to be rather slow in rolling out. The Eee Slate from Asus has yet to arrive Stateside, while the HP Slate remains the target of the enterprise market. It […]


LG Slate might capture 3D video?
Whispers abound that the upcoming LG Slate device (which has already gone through the FCC’s paces) will certainly place a significant amount of attention where stereoscopic 3D is concerned – it seems that an LG France spokesman disclosed that the Tegra 2-based tablet’s 8.9-inch LCD will not only be accompanied by a glasses-free 3D display, but is also more than able to record 3D video. Having said that, it ought […]

ASUS announces 4 new tablets
[CES 2011] It looks like ASUS will be releasing 4 new tablets over the course of the year – the Eee Slate, the Eee Pad Transformer, the Eee Pad Slider and the Eee Pad MeMO. After unveiling them today at CES, the Taiwanese company has revealed their prices and release dates to the public. The Eee Slate EP121, which runs on Windows 7, will pack a 12.1″ 1280 x 800 […]

HP set to deliver Bluetooth keyboard accessory
We all know that HP is more than willing to roll out their device in the near future, but we’re left high and dry as to why nothing’s done just yet to speed up its release. Well, another confirmation that this is no vaporware – HP will also be rolling out a Bluetooth keyboard accessory that will play nice with the aforementioned tablet, where this keyboard will boast webOS […]

HP Slate 500 Hands-On
HP has just made its Slate 500 slate available. It is a product designed for business and its main objective is to bring the Slate (call it a tablet if you want) form factor to the Windows market. Businesses do run Windows software and often, employees in the field carry laptops that could be replaced by lighter slates/tablets. HP Believes that the Slate 500 will improve the productivity and working […]

HP Casts Doubt On The Future Of Windows 7 Slate
The Windows 7-powered HP Slate received much fanfare when it was first unveiled, but it has unfortunately slipped off the radar recently, and with the recent acquisition of Palm by HP, its future is even bleaker. The responses from HP at the Untethered conference today probably served to further confirm that the device, if it ever surfaces, won’t be powered by Microsoft’s Windows 7 OS. The company’s Personal Systems Group […]

LG UX10 slate spotted at Computex
Tablets could very well be the next big ticket item in the world of gadgets thanks to the phenomenal iPad from Apple, moving a cool 2 million units worldwide since its launch a couple of months ago. LG wants some of the profit pie as well with the LG UX10 debuting at Computex in Taipei, albeit in a prototype form factor with the real deal slated to arrive before 2010 […]

iiView M1Touch slate device could have Apple lawyers swoop down on them
A first glance at the iiView M1Touch does resemble the spawn between an Apple iPad and iPod touch/iPhone, don’t you think? This could very well result in Apple’s legal eagles swoop down on them, as this $510 device will not run on the iPhone OS, but will instead tote Windows 7 alongside an Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz processor to keep things running fine and smooth within. You get a 10.1″ […]

Marvell Android tablet
Marvell has come up with a brand new tablet which will run off the Google Android operating system. Currently at the prototype stage, this 10″ tablet relies on an ARM-based Armada processor for all its number crunching muscle, apart from 1080p video playback support without adversely affecting battery life. While the prototype does seem to point towards Android 1.6, we do hope that the finished product will ship with version […]

ExoPC Slate Looks Vaguely Like The Apple iPad
It looks like the market certainly is getting flooded with tablet computers. Next up is the ExoPC Slate, which looks rather similar to Apple’s recently announced iPad. Since the ExoPC Slate is powered by Windows 7, you’ll be able to do more than a few things that the iPad can’t do, such as multitasking. This 8.9-inch multitouch tablet is priced at $599, which should put it on par with the […]

Cynovo C7 tablet powered by Windows 7
Windows 7 is the operating system of choice for the Cynovo C7 tablet, where the number 7 seems to play a prominent role (we’re not talking about it retailing for $700 though). Featuring a 7″ touchscreen display (there’s that number again), it will be powered by an Intel Atom Z520 1.33GH processor, 2GB RAM, a 32GB hard drive, support for both 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity to make sure you will […]

It will come with Wi-Fi connectivity, a 160GB hard drive, 2GB RAM, a 1.3-megapixel webcam as well […]

HP Choses Snapdragon Over Atom
Intel certainly isn’t going to be too happy at HP’s announcement that its testing Qualcomm’s ARM A8 Cortex based Snapdragon chip for use in its smartbook. Intel has been dominating the netbook market with its Atom processor, but Snapdragon is certainly going to be a formidable opponent in the mobile computing scene. Apparently Qualcomm and HP have agreed to come up with a smartbook based on Snapdragon. The device should […]
