Recent days may mark Lenovo’s major foray into tablet PC market, and this ambitious firm has introduced three tablet PCs in consecution including newly-leaked ThinkPad Tablet for professionals as well as IdeaPad K1 for common users and Windows-based IdeaPad P1 for family or office use. Well, the similar appearance of IdeaPad P1 and IdeaPad K1 with its brethren, LePad, may explain why these two siblings are revealed together.
The Windows 7-powered IdeaPad P1 features a 10.1 inch capacitive touchscreen with resolution of 1280*800, a 1.5GHz Intel Atom Oak Trail processor, 2GB of RAM DDR 2, 64GB of SDD, a 2MP front-facing camera, sporting 3G, Wifi and various ports like USB 2.0, microSD card slot, … Continue
It would be a tough decision to pick up one and ditch another between Android 2.2 and Windows 7 as the OS on their devices. So safe tactics to avoid this dilemma is to offer two variants with OS as the major difference. This might be the thought of Frontier, a Japanese PC maker, which has now unveiled two similar slates, Android 2.2-based FT102-6 and Windows 7-based FT102-32. I just cannot help thinking of ViewSonic’s dual-boot ViewPad 10 Pro, which saves this trouble by running both Android 2.2 and Windows 7.
Both FT102-6 and FT102-32 feature a 10.1 touchscreen with resolution 1024*600, a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N455 processor and a removable Bluetooth QWERTY keyboard. Differences … Continue
Asus EeePad Transformer TF 101, receiving admiring acclaim from customers since its launch, has earned Asus a very advantageous place in tablet PC market. Transformer is surely not Asus’s sole attempt and a series of lineup based on different platforms and form factors are to be expected in the near future. And here is one just around the corner. The images for Asus’s new tablet posted on Facebook readily demonstrate the silhouette of this mysterious device.
Based on the released pictures, this new tablet is coated with a metal chassis, with clean design and smooth lines. It looks rather elegant and sleek though Asus doesn’t even bother to show the panorama for this new thing and is … Continue
Strike while the iron is hot. The hot “irons” here, Sony’s two newly-launched android 3.0 tablets codenamed respectively as Sony S1 and S2, are followed closely by even fresh ones, “Freestyle Hybrid PC” tablet and “Ultimate Mobile PC” readily pigeonholed in Sony Vaio laptop series.
The “Hybrid” demonstrates explicitly that like Asus Eeepad Transformer this device will be a good combination of both tablet PC and laptop. This freestyle tablet PC is purported to feature a 9.4 inch display and a slide-out slim keyboard without trackpad. The possible pricetag $799, over twice the price of Asus Transformer, seems not attractive enough from the perspective of tablet PC, but makes sense when it comes to a … Continue

No matter how coy and mysterious HPs’ two webOS 3.0-based tablets, it seems that one of these two, TouchPad, will come out to meet the customers in April, much earlier than we have presumed. The two webOS tablets were originally codenamed as Topaz for 9.7-inch model, and Opal for 7-inch one. Though these two names sounds not impressive enough, they are unique and special. But the new name for 9.7 inch tablet, TouchPad, is nothing short of mediocrity. Isn’t that a more responding will contribute a little to the sales? Whatever! Just as what leaked before, 9.7-inch HP TouchPad shows up earlier than 7-inch HP tablet PC.
HP is planning to ship both notebooks and … Continue
No matter what is claimed as the most powerful or impressive, I would put a question mark on it first, since better ones will kept popping out in most people’s mind to challenge so-called best one. EROS Wings tablet can be counted a very unique tablet among those miscellaneous electronic devices. It originates from not some particular manufacturer but one person, whose Internet ID is Yoyo’s Wings. The first-gen Wings tablet was launched early last year, and the EROS Wings 2 nd generation, ie, the upgraded version has made its appearance. It shows much improvement on configuration over the first-gen one.
Let’s have a look what can be considered as powerful. The specs include … Continue
Unlike a multitude of various android-based tablets, Windows 7 slates seem born to be high-end tablets, both an advantage and a disadvantage for Win7 tablet pcs. In compatible with Windows 7, we will unavoidably find sound hardware configuration on Win7 slates. However, the targeted customers are much fewer due to the affordability, since windows 7 slates appear a little pricier than android tablets. So Gigabyte is such a Windows 7 tablet like that.
Gigabyte S1080 will be packed with Intel Atom N570 1.66GHz processor, Windows 7 Home Premium, 10.1-inch capacitive multi touch screen with 1024*600 resolution, a 320GB hard drive, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, two mouse buttons a USB 3.0, a USB 2.0, a SD card … Continue
