Notion Ink Adam tablet to cost $399 and up

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on August 12th, 2010

After months of waiting we finally have some pricing information for the Notion Ink Adam tablet. It could be one of the first tablets to ship with a Pixel Qi display which is as easy to read outdoors as indoors and uses 80% less power when in outdoor/black and white mode. It could also be one of the first tablets to ship with an NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset.

This Android 2.2 powered device will still need to get FCC certification before it hits the US, but it will be priced between $399 and $498.

Cool Armor X10gx rugged tablet PC is tough enough for soldiers

Posted in Tablet PC by Shane McGlaun on August 12th, 2010

I never really thought I would like a table computer until I used my iPad. I really like the tablet form factor, but that iPad is too fragile for working stiffs who are out in the field all day. A new tablet machine that meets military specs for ruggedness has been unveiled by Armor.

The machine is called the X10gx and it has a 10.4-inch transreflective LCD with a resolution of 1024 x 768 that can be read in direct sunlight. That screen accepts both pen based and touch input to boot. Storage is to a 64GB SSD with 80GB or 160GB options.

Augen’s Kmart tablet and smartbook won’t have Google-branded apps

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on August 8th, 2010

The future of Augen’s $150 tablet and $100 smartbook isn’t looking as bright as we had hoped. They have slow processors and resistive touchscreens and now their official Google app privileges have just been revoked.

Augen has confirmed that the entire proprietary suite (including Market, Gmail and more) was preloaded on the devices without Google’s permission, and won’t appear on new batches that make it to store shelves. Augen says it’s working with Google to secure rights to these apps for new products down the road. Hopefully it gets sorted out quickly.

Attack of the tablets continues. In this installment, we have news that Viewsonic has some tablet plans of their own. They are not content with LCDs. The company is preparing a 7-inch Android 2.2. Froyo tablet. The tablet is expected to include GSM/UMTS connectivity, for voice calls and presumably data access as well, with a rear-mounted camera.

Pricing for the UK launch should be between £300 and £400 ($478 to $637) with a debut predicted within two months or less. That isn’t too much of a wait.

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on August 3rd, 2010

According to the Financial Times, Verizon and Motorola are teaming up on an Android tablet. One that will have dual cameras, Adobe Flash support and a ten-inch screen, plus mobile hotspot functionality. If that isn’t enough, how about access to pay TV?

Motorola does make a Verizon FiOS set-top box, so why not? And sources are telling the Times that the television tablet may be the same technology. We don’t have any info on processing power or price yet, but rumors say that we could see it as early as fall of this year. If that’s true, it won’t be a long wait.

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on August 2nd, 2010

Windows 7 wasn’t exactly meant for tablet devices, but we are seeing it on tablets more often. Now Pegatron has their new MasterPad prototype tablet, measuring just 14mm thin with an 11.6″ IPS (In Plane Switching) display, running at 1,366 x 768 widescreen resolution.

Some other specifications include a 1.3-megapixel webcam with a microphone, USB ports, a memory card reader, an accelerometer, a mini-HDMI port, 3G and 32GB or 64GB SSD options. The body is magnesium and aluminum alloy. The 2-cell battery is a bit disappointing but hopefully the final product will better.

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on August 1st, 2010

If you have been wanting to check out the tablet market, but find things a tad expensive, here’s a less expensive option. The Copia Tablet is obviously not the sexiest tablet around, but it won’t take up much room in your bag at just 5 inches in size.

It’s called the Ocean Reader. We aren’t sure who will want one even at that price though when you have your choice of big name tablets. Still, it might be worth a try if you want to take a chance.

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on July 26th, 2010

Augen is offering its $149.99 7-inch Android tablet at Kmart. It just hit the circulars. It’s an Android 2.1 tablet with WiFi, 2GB of storage and 256MB of RAM for just 150 bucks. Augen says that it will have access to the Android “Market App Store.”

The price is certainly right and if you want to pick one up the device should be hitting shelves later this week, though the company was unsure it would ever be on Kmart’s online store. At that price it should have no problems finding buyers.
