It gives me a sense of delusion when I hold this 5 inch android 2.1 tablet in hand. You know what produce this effect on me: the size and the android OS version. A 5 incher, though utterly portable, may not cater to the demand of mainstream customers when most smartphones are already bestowed with a 4.3 inch touch panel and even a 7 inch tablet PC is barely satisfy some group of users who accentuate the video performance on a larger-sized screen. Android Eclair, thought not yet reaching the extent of being obsolete, is rarely brought on tablet PC at a time when android Froyo and Gingerbread are so prevailing.
ZTE Style S, unrelated to the heated words regarding smartphone like glass- free 3D or 4G LTE on CTIA, may easily be eclipsed by LG Optimus 3D or Optimus 4G and is apt to escape your attention. Though unnoticeable enough, ZTE Style S does not intend to disappoint us. After all, ZTE has little attention of making a real hit in a field which it does not specialize in. What comes along with Style S is ZTE V11-LTE 4G, a tablet PC which sneaks in our sight now and then.
Originally codenamed as ZTE Skate, Style S offers specs not so awesome but also little to blame. It comes with Qualcomm MSM7227 processor, android … Continue
Well, while tablet PC market is less and less glutted with iPhone cloned slates, we know that the appearance of tablets evolve to diversification. I am not referring to some reform in design but mean a shifting of attention solely on iPad. Now that customers grow tired of slates of iPad look, why not design them as something like, say iPhone 4 or various branded smartphones? Though this still sounds short of creativity, it is better than that all the tablet PCs are like twins. So don’t show expression of cynicism at the sight of a HTC smartphone-like tablet PC.
This tablet resembles a larger version of a HTC smartphone in look. It comes … Continue
We are well aware that how proudly Windows operating system sweeps across the world of desktops, laptop PCs and netbooks, and also know how triumphantly Android permeates to the innards of miscellaneous tablet PCs. So what if some devices reverse this unspoken but overt rule? Possibly, this will lead to some sort of device freaks. Here I refer to a pitch-black android netbook that I recently run into.
Well, I try hard to forgive its featureless design when I see its thin depth and utter portability. You might refute me by saying that being featureless is also a feature itself. But it really hurts me a little when I switch it on but find myself unable to watch flash online … Continue
Tablet PCs based on VIA 8505 or VIA 8650, generally speaking, impress me with low version of android operation system, most with android 1.6. This might be the major reason why VIA chipsets tablet generally sells not so good. Now a big leap has been made on VIA family of tablet PCs. Suntoo E86, VIA8650 android 2.2 tablet, is going to change the rigid image in people’s mind.

Well, how do you feel when you see a device which comes with design of a smartphone, size of a tablet PC and functionality of a laptop? I will not be amazed at an era when smartphone, tablet PC and laptop are melted into one and cannot be told apart simply by size. When I see a 10’’ Nokia N97, I would tend to assume it is a tablet; but when there is a keyboard can be slided out and it stands like…exactly like a laptop.
Flytouch really lives up to its name and soars to popularity at an amazing pace. Flytouch 2 didn’t receive much attention last year and only few manufacturers chose it as the platform. Things have changed with some visible signs so much so that many tablet makers are swarming to manufacture Flytouch 2. Indeed, with much similar configuration as Zenithink ZT-180 ePad, Flytouch 2 has some pleasing improvement in some essential aspects.
First of all, Flytouch 2, packed with a 10.1-inch display, not only comes with almost the same size as iPad and but also looks much like iPad, which can be considered a very successful iPad knockoff. The second is the excellent video playback decoding capability, … Continue
