Fujitsu shows off two Windows 7 tablets, phone at CEATEC

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

This week at CEATEC, Fujitsu demonstrated two portable tablets running on Windows 7. The pair are prototypes for the moment, so sadly no specs were revealed. The company also showed off a Design Concept flip phone, which sported dual touchscreens that can rotate to offer a landscape view.

The handset was preloaded with Fujitsu’s proprietary OS, which could hold it back big time if or when it’s launched since the apps market isn’t likely to be capable of competing with the Android Market or iTunes store.

HP Slate Windows 7 Tablet on video

Posted in HP by Conner Flynn on September 23rd, 2010

When we last heard about the Windows 7 based HP Slate tablet, it seemed that HP had shelved it. But now a video has showed up which shows the HP Windows 7 Slate tablet in action. HP has previously said that the consumer version of the tablets they will be releasing will be based on Palm’s webOS, while the enterprise versions will be based on Windows 7.

You can check out the video below. It looks pretty decent, better then we thought it would. Looks like it powers up quick and goes pretty fast. It’s very responsive.

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on August 28th, 2010

If you were looking forward to getting the Windows 7-powered ExoPC tablet, you already know that the tablet was to be delayed by several months. Well, we waited and now the company has confirmed that it will be accepting its first pre-orders on September 3rd.

The first 1,200 orders will be shipped on September 30th. On October 15 the company’s first rebadged partner slate will become available in Canada. Some specs include an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 pixel display, Intel Atom N450 processor, 2GB of DDR2 RAM, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, USB 2.0, Mini HDMI port, 1.3-megapixel webcam, SD/SDHC memory card reader and a Battery life up to 5-hours.

MasterPad prototype runs Windows 7

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.

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.

Microsoft sells over 150 Million copies of Windows 7

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on June 24th, 2010

While Apple has been breaking records with iPad sales, Microsoft has been counting their numbers as well. They just announced that they have sold over 150 million Windows 7 licenses since it went on sale. That number is up considerably from the 100 Million copies that they had sold back in April.

In fact, Windows 7 is Microsoft’s fastest selling OS. They are selling about seven copies of Windows 7 every second. Pew Pew Pew. Sales should continue to rise as many more PC users move to Windows 7.

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 public beta coming next month

Posted in Windows by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2010

In late July, Microsoft will release the first Service Pack for Windows 7, but don’t expect any significant performance enhancements that will improve the overall OS experience. It doesn’t need any heavy fixes.

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 is just a combination of existing updates, outside of the new Remote Desktop to support new Windows Server 2008 SP1 features. Luckily, Windows 7 doesn’t need the same kind of service pack that Vista required just to be stable. The public beta of SP1 will be released at the end of July and the final version will be released soon after.

ASUS Eee Pad runs Windows 7

Posted in ASUS by Conner Flynn on May 31st, 2010

Looks like ASUS ws serious about having some tablets for us this year. The Eee Pad runs Windows 7, and comes in 10 and 12-inch versions. We don’t have full specs yet, but we do know there’s a webcam “for video conferencing capabilities,” and it recognizes handwriting. There’s also a virtual keyboard and it comes with a docking station keyboard as well.

The device is powered by Intel’s Core 2 Duo CULV chips, and apparently you’ll get 10 hours per charge with each model. The 10-inch EP101TC weighs 675g, and is just 12.2mm thick while running Windows Embedded Compact 7. The bulkier EP121 remains a mystery.

Is Nokia working on a Windows 7 Tablet?

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on April 6th, 2010

Keep in mind that this is still in rumor territory, but according to Ashok Kumar, an analyst at Rodman Renshaw, Nokia is working with suppliers and design manufacturers on a touchscreen tablet. One that might be available as soon as this fall.

We don’t have many details, but we are guessing that it will be powered by Microsoft’s Windows 7. Again, there’s nothing official on this yet, but we wouldn’t mind a Nokia tablet at all. Now that the iPad is out, competitors can offer all of the things that the iPad lacks and we look forward to seeing what they can do.

Toshiba UX600 series HDTVs certified Windows 7 compatible

Posted in Toshiba by Conner Flynn on April 2nd, 2010

Here’s something different. Have you been looking for a Windows 7 certified 55-inch TV? Toshiba thinks so. Their 120Hz UX600 series is the first HDTV on the market to get official Microsoft certification, largely due to DLNA support over Ethernet or WiFi.

The logo lets you know it’s a Windows TV so that the average consumer know what he/she is buying if they are looking to stream media to the living room. Hopefully no Blue screens of death here.

Posted in Epson by Conner Flynn on December 15th, 2009

Epson NP12-V Nettop with Windows 7When you think Epson, you probably think printers, but the company has been branching out lately and the Japanese are now used to seeing Epson nettops. Among other things. The latest, the NP12-V is an Atom-powered nettop from Epson, which is designed to be both ultra quiet and eco friendly.

The other bonus here is that this model ships with Windows 7 Premium, which will please many of you who hate Vista. The NP12-V is being sold in Japan for about 32800 Yen (or $370).

Windows 7 sends PC sales up 40% in first week

Posted in Windows by Conner Flynn on November 3rd, 2009

windows7-sbNot surprisingly, the launch of Windows 7 has triggered at least a temporary spike in PC sales according to Morgan Stanley analyst Katheryn Huberty. Computer sales jumped about 40 percent during the week of Microsoft’s OS launch compared to the same period a year earlier.

That number is in part offset by buyers holding off on their purchases during the previous two weeks, when sales dropped 29 percent and then 2 percent versus 2008, but is well above earlier weeks, when sales were up by at most 19 percent.

Turn your Windows 7 Laptop into a Wi-Fi hotspot

Posted in Wi-Fi by Conner Flynn on November 2nd, 2009

Turn your Windows 7 Laptop into a Wi-Fi hotspotVirtual Wi-Fi was going to be a Windows 7 feature that would turn your PC into a Wi-Fi access-point so devices could share a connection without needing special software. It didn’t make it into the final cut on the OS, but this free app finishes the work that Microsoft abandoned.

Some of the code that Microsoft Research used to virtualize one Wi-Fi card as several adapters still made its way into Windows 7, allowing Connectify to complete the job.

Burger King’s Windows 7 Whopper gets its first bite

Posted in Windows by Conner Flynn on October 23rd, 2009

Yesterday we told you about the Japanese arm of Burger King offering a seven-pattie Whopper which costs 777 yen. It was all to celebrate the release of Windows 7. Some of you thought it was just for promotion and that the burgers would not be made or eaten. Others just drooled like Homer Simpson.

But we now have 46 seconds of video footage that shows how you would eat such a monster burger. This brave man takes his meat competitor like a true champ. If only his jaws could dis-locate.
