The bros over at Gizmodo got their paws on an early Windows 8 Slate, and wouldn't you know it, it looks pretty amazing. Could Microsoft be prepping the toughest competition to the iPad?
Still have doubts that Amazon is planning to unleash a tablet of its own? Amazon gave TechCrunch an exclusive look (no pics, though) and fondling for its upcoming 7-inch Kindle Tablet. Will a Kindle Tablet have what it takes to make a splash?
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's got the thinnest and lightest 10-inch tablet and notebook PC of them all. According to Toshiba, they now have both.
The Nook Color, Barnes & Noble's seven-inch tablet/e-reader is almost a year old this October, so it might be time for a hardware refresh. DigiTimes is reporting that a Nook Color 2 will come this month to square off against Amazon's Kindle (tablet)?
Is it a mini tablet or supersized smartphone? You can categorize the Samsung Galaxy Note and its 5.3-inch screen however you want, because it packs a ridiculous 1280x800 resolution Super AMOLED screen, a pair of beefy cameras and a stylus.
Amazon's tablet has long been rumored, but a new report has it coming out sometime next year, with production beginning as soon as the next month.
We've known about Sony's plans to crash into the Android tablet scene with two interesting designs — the S1 and S2, as the pair was formerly called — but didn't have much in the way of details. Well, Sony still needs to work on its naming scheme, but the newly christened Tablet S and Tablet P are delivering on a promise to be different.
The HP TouchPad is dead — killed off after only six weeks on the market and sold off at fire sale prices of one-fifth its original $500 price tag. Or is it? HP says it could revive the TouchPad in the future.
My friend S (he hates it when I invoke his name in print), a long-time IT pro, made a sage observation in the wake of HP effectively whacking its TouchPad, Motorola selling itself to Google, the great Samsung Galaxy Tab/Best Buy giveaway (more on this in a bit), and the general bloody state of the non-iPad tablet business. "Apple's been perfecting its ecosystem for a decade, and these guys think they can duplicate it in a couple of months." And then we laughed. Not at HP, but at the whole ridiculous state of the tablet business that S succinctly summed up. So, now that the tablet business has pretty much devolved to Apple and Android, where do we go from here? Don't ask the pundits. They seem to have no more of a clue about the future of the tablet universe than Criswell did about the diabolical plans of vampires from outer space.
Remember the JooJoo tablet? Probably not, because it was pretty terrible and nobody bought any of them. But JooJoo has gone and renamed itself TabCo and is gonna give the whole tablet thing another whirl with the Grid10.
