• The Inkia inPad 701 and inPad 702 breaks onto the scene

    >Inkia isn’t a new player in the tablet game and so the inPad 701 and inPad 702 might be solid contenders. Details are a bit light but we know that both run Android on a 7-inch screen with the 702 model getting a 3G module. It’s probably safe to assume that the target market is Asia but retails such as Dynamism has a long history of bringing similar products to the states. That… Read More

  • Dell's Streak micro-tablet to hit Europe in June, US "later this summer"

    I’m not sure who among you is really pumped about a 5-inch tablet when we’ve got phones approaching that size, but hey, diff’rent tablets for diff’rent… users, right? It looked okay when we saw it a while back, but who will buy the 5-incher knowing there are 7- and 10-inch variants on the way? I guess maybe if you want one for each pocket. Read More

  • Acer to debut Chrome OS devices at Computex?

    Acer has said for a while now that they would be the first to market with Chrome OS devices. Seems like that would be up to Google, but I guess it helps to be willing and able. Sources are now saying that these devices will debut as early as June 1 at the Computex show in Taipei. Read More

  • The ExoPC's release date and GPU, everyone

    We’ve been following the ExoPC‘s development with a bit of curiosity and excitement. It’s one of the only tablets, along with the Notion Ink Adam and WePad, that has a chance to grab a bit of marketshare away from the iPad. The ExoPC just got a bit more interesting, too. Blog Geek just got confirmation that the slate will use the Broadcom BCM70012 or Crystal HD, which should… Read More

  • AigoPad re-revealed, sports 7-inch screen, Tegra 2, and Android 2.1

    This is the second Android-and-ARM-based tablet to hit just today. At this rate, we’ll be buried in them. This one is called the Aigo N700, and although it looks completely different from the AigoPad we saw announced a couple months back, I’m guessing that they just decided to redo the shell. There are also 5-inch and 4-inch versions coming, but I really don’t see the… Read More

  • The Archos 5 Internet Tablet gets access to Android Market's paid apps

    The Archos 5 Internet Tablet just got a bit cooler. It finally has access to paid apps from the Android Market thanks to the latest firmware. This solves one of the biggest gripes we’ve heard about the small Android tablets. Previsously users could only download the free Android apps, not the preimum apps that cost something. This is actually a significant move in the Android tablet… Read More

  • NetWalker PC-T1: Sharp announces mini tablet for Japan for next month

    The iPad hasn’t landed in Japan yet, giving domestic competitors some room for their own announcements for tablet PCs. Sharp, for example, today unveiled [JP] the NetWalker PC-T1, which looks like a tablet variant of the PC-Z1 the company introduced last year. Both models look pretty similar, it’s just that the older device lost the keyboard to become the T1. Read More

  • Lenovo's hybrid laptop-tablet U1 is approaching release

    Lenovo has just updated its site with some encouraging words, saying that its freaky U1 hybrid tablet-laptop is “coming soon.” The news isn’t really the imminence of its arrival, but rather that it’s arriving at all. I gave it a thorough hands-on at CES, and it seemed pretty beta — but a cool idea. Maybe they’ve worked out some of the kinks? Read More

  • Well, of course Google is working on a tablet

    There is much excited talk right now about Eric Schmidt letting slip that Google is indeed working on a tablet. Yeah, I think we all knew that. The only real surprise is that it’s running Android, possibly with Chrome tacked on as the browser. Why not ChromeOS? I suppose Google thinks it would be pretty ridiculous to debut a new OS with a new device, with only web apps available, when… Read More

  • The WePad gets a price and launch date (update: Now with a demo of the interface!)

    The WePad made headlines a few weeks back when the tablet launched out of seemingly nowhere. It’s really the anti-iPad with multitasking, Flash, SD card slot, USB, along with the Android Marketplace, but while maintaining Apple’s sleek design. But the pricing and availability wasn’t mentioned with the hardware specs. The company just went public with those deets’ along… Read More

  • Meizu up to their old tricks, clones the iPad this time

    It looks like Meizu has done it again. This Chinese electronics manufacturer best known for its iPhone clones has recently revealed a new product that looks surprisingly similar to the iPad. Read More
