The Galaxy Note is a different breed of mobile device. With a 5.3-inch screen, it's too large to be a comfortable smartphone and too small to be a real-sized tablet. Yet, it still manages to be a very formidable pocket companion. AT&T's priced and dated the device, so get your wallet out.
Haven't jumped on the tablet train yet? Good, because an informed bee says that Samsung's going to announce the beefiest Galaxy Tab yet, with a fetching high resolution screen and the latest bite of Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Sounds yummy.
DigiTimes is at it again, but instead of talking up info on the next iPad or iPhone, it's reporting that Windows 8 tablets might cost somewhere between $600 and $900. If true, well, Windows 8 tablets could be screwed.
It's CES, folks (or the Consumer Electronics Show for your first-timers). And as always, we're bringing you the latest tech innovations straight from Las Vegas. But why not take a minute and celebrate one very spirited participant we've dubbed 'Tablet Man,' who has 11 tablets strapped to his body. Gotta love CES.
Thin has been in with cellphones ever since the Motorola Razr, but thin and waterproof? It boggles the mind, but Fujitsu has done it here at CES. I asked the Fujitsu rep under what circumstances you'd need a phone or a tablet that's waterproof and also very very thin, and he couldn't think of any. But I can.
Just in time for anyone who did a bit of early shopping and picked up the iPad 2, a new rumor has surfaced regarding the next generation of the device, and it may be coming sooner than you think.
Ainol, a Chinese company responsible for many of the MP4-based portable media players you've probably seen in budget shops is releasing NOVO7, the world's first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-based tablet. But is it any good?
Fact: Barnes & Noble's Nook Tablet has 16GB of storage — twice that of the Kindle Fire's 8GB (6GB of which is user usable). Hidden fact: you can only use ONE GIGABYTE of the Nook Tablet's 16GB of storage for movies, music and non-B&N e-books. How crazy is that? Time to cross the Nook Tablet off your wish list.
I just received my Kindle Fire. It's in this box. Just to be clear, this Fire is my Fire: it's money out of my own pocket. This isn't a unit Amazon gave DVICE for review. Like many, I tossed my name in early for a Kindle Fire pre-order. I was at the unveiling, and got just as excited by the prospect of a $200 tablet as anyone else. That's an amazing price point (and one that's punishing Amazon, at least up front), and even now the temptation is there to tear open this box and play with Fire. But I won't. By the time you read this, the Fire will already be on its way back to Amazon's returns department.
Barnes & Noble thinks you'll spend $50 more to buy its new Nook Tablet rather than Amazon's Fire, both of which go on sale sometime next week. Apparently B&N also believes the original Nook Color is equal to the Amazon Fire now that both are priced at $199. I think Barnes & Noble has lost its mind. Does B&N realize that for us to choose the Tablet over the Fire it had to either blow us away product-wise (it didn't), at least match Amazon Fire's price (it didn't), or come up with a completely different value proposition (it didn't)? Instead, Barnes & Noble figures to fight Fire with, literally, flash. Allow me to douse Tablet's not so flaming advantage.
