How RIM shipped the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet without native email, calendar and contact apps is beyond anyone. It's a BlackBerry product for crying out loud. Worry no more, because RIM is finally pushing out PlayBook OS 2.0 and it brings all of that, as well as the long-awaited Android app support.
Barnes & Noble might be feeling the heat from Amazon's $200 Kindle Fire. Although its Nook Tablet is more powerful than the Kindle Fire in virtually every way, it still costs $50 more. A new Nook Tablet with less storage and a lower price tag could make it more competitive with the Kindle Fire.
Look what the cat dragged in. Samsung's finally given its first 7-inch Galaxy Tab Android tablet a proper successor with sharper screen, an additional camera and the delicious Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Talk about long overdue update.
The iPad 2, Amazon Kindle, Transformer Prime, or Galaxy Tab might be the best tablets available right now, but they aren't cheap by any stretch. Sprint's new ZTE Optik is a pretty decent spec-ed tablet that only costs 100 bucks and has 3G.
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.
