Windows 7 Tablets coming this year

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

According to Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer, there are several Windows 7 tablets coming. Ballmer made the remarks at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference today. We knew that Windows 7 tablets were coming. We already know about the Asus Eee Pad after all. But in addition to Asus, Ballmer also mentioned Dell, Samsung, Toshiba and Sony and Windows 7 tablet partners, with products on shelves “in the coming months.”

It’s pretty ambitious to announce this at this time. Apparently the idea is that they’ll be IT department-friendly, but we aren’t sure how since tablets are mostly about content and not productivity. I guess we will see soon.

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on June 29th, 2010

Cisco has just announced a business-minded Android tablet, called the Cius. The tablet offers HD video streaming, real-time video, multi-party conferencing, plus all the regular tablet functions you know and love like messaging, email, and browsing.

No word on the size of the tablet yet, or technical specs, but we know it will weigh 1.15lbs, so it is likely on the small end. Nothing on pricing or availability yet either, but we’re intrigued. Hopefully we will know more soon.

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

Looks like Samsung is getting into the tablet action as well. The company’s official South African Twitter account has revealed a picture of a Samsung tablet, called the Samsung Galaxy Tab, sitting next to the Samsung Galaxy S. We don’t have any details to go with the pic, but it’s running Android 2.1 with the latest TouchWiz interface, offering a 7-inch display, 3.5mm headphone jack and a front-facing camera.

There seems to be a “Phone” icon sitting at the left bottom corner of the Samsung Galaxy Tab’s display, which is interesting. Rumors say that Samsung is working on three Android tablets that are to be launched this year, the first being this 7-inch model, followed by an 8-inch device in October, and a 10-inch device in December.

Google Tablet coming from Verizon

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on May 11th, 2010

Make way for the first serious iPad competitor. According to Verizon Chief Exec Lowell McAdam, the carrier is working with Google on “a tablet computer.” The WSJ report is light on details as you might expect this early in the game, but Bloomberg scored the news that this tablet is said be Android-based, and that more details will be released later this week.

McAdam said that tablets are “part of the ‘next big wave of opportunities,’” and that Verizon’s “looking at all the things Google has in its archives that we could put on a tablet to make it a great experience.”. We should know more soon, but an Android/Verizon tablet already has us salivating.

Adobe prototype Android tablet running Air and Flash

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on May 5th, 2010

Not only did they demonstrate Flash running on phones like the Nexus One and Palm Pre at the Web 2.0 Expo, but Adobe also has a prototype Android tablet that, according to Zedomax, runs Flash and Air apps “flawlessly.” There aren’t any details on the tablet itself yet, but it seems that it does indeed run Air and Flash pretty nicely.

It runs Wired’s Air-based magazine app and plays YouTube videos without any problems. However, we would like to see it pushed a little harder. Hopefully we will learn more soon. You can check out a video below.

BlackBerry tablet to arrive in 2011?

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

Take this with the usual grain of salt, but word is that RIM is working on a tablet device, codenamed the BlackPad or Cobalt. Apparently the device will feature an 8.9-inch display and might even be thinner and smaller than Apple’s iPad.

If such a device is even coming out of RIM, it would be unveiled in 2011, with a 3G connection, Wi-Fi, and might even sync with a BlackBerry smartphone. Now this is mighty interesting. If they play their cards right, this could really compete with Apple.

Toshiba confirms Windows and Android tablets

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on April 15th, 2010

Toshiba America’s Jeff Barney confirmed awhile ago that there was a tablet coming from the company in early 2011. Now Jeff has given some more information to Reuters. He says that there won’t be just one, but at least two of them and they’ll be out before the year is through. The first will be a premium model running Windows 7, about 10 inches in size and with two screens.

The second runs Android at a lower price. Nothing further on specs. Both are for “media consumption” according to Barney. He sees slates as “expansive like netbooks.” You can take that to mean that they won’t take away from the company’s laptop business.

HP Slate Promotional Video

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on April 5th, 2010

The latest promotional video of the HP Slate takes some well deserved shots digs at Apple’s new iPad. The video below won’t tell you the specs, how much it will cost or when it will be available, but it does make a point to mention that the device supports SD cards and USB connectors, which you won’t find on the iPad by default.

Ironically, the HP Slate is shown running iTunes. HP is trying to tell you that it is just as good, or maybe better than Apple’s iPad. What do you think? We think it looks very promising.

Fusion Garage’s JooJoo gets torn apart

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on April 4th, 2010

People have now started to receive their JooJoo tablets, so this day had to come eventually, where someone tears it apart to expose it’s secrets. It’s a dirty job, but somebody had to do it. So, what did they find during the surgery?

Well Engadget says that the JooJoo is easy to open up, only requiring you to remove 10 screws. Under the hood there are slots for RAM, 3G radio, SSD, and even an extra PCIe slot. Performance-wise, they ran into some problems using Hotmail, and Netflix didn’t work at all on the thing. Maybe that will be cured soon.
