Tantalizing enough! What would be more fascinating than revealing one’s true look little by little like Apple-branded devices, be it heated discussed iPhone 5 or soon-to-be-released iPad 2. Most people develop interest in speculating what iPad 2 brings to us based on some leaked info. Last time was the iPad 2 case. Judging from the holes of the case for iPad, we may know that the second-gen iPad have back facing camera, volume and mute switches, dock connector, speaker port, and possibly SD card slot and mini display port. This time is the latest SDK. It shows that there will be a rear camera on iPad 2 but regrettably with only 1 megapixel and 720p… Continue
Though few definite details about HP’s two Web-based tablets are leaked, some pictures are adequately enough to excite you. Just based on this picture, these two brothers Opal and Topaz given birth by HP would be very good-looking: mainstream black shell, sleek design with gloss material. The other potential features includes some sort of 1.2GHz processors, a front-facing camera, a micro USB port on the bottom part, seemingly no-button design, possible three speakers for stereo audio. And it seems that the 7 inch tablet Opal will lay more focus on E-book reading and sport quite impressive music playback performance. No more specs info is known. Opal may show up later this year, and Topaz will come … Continue
How can Samsung Galaxy be so mysterious about its price? The price wasn’t unveiled until the last moment, pushing people’s curiosity to the uppermost. Somehow the focus on the price of Galaxy even exceeds the tab itself. The rumored prices seemed encouraging, since the bottom line was that it was definitely not very affordable but might be more accessible than an its competitor, iPad. The fact tells us that Samsung knows well the price won’t be appealing enough and thus strives to establish cooperation with carriers in order to bring down the price a little. But when the final prices comes out in different countries, I assume that many people will be disappointed a little, … Continue
It is so expensive, more expensive than Samsung Galaxy and iPad, and might be the most expensive tablet pc I’ve ever heard. The newly announced Indamixx 2 Meego-based slate device really challenges customers’ tolerance of tablet price: $ 999. You may think I am a little overreacted, but I assume that most people just have the same response like me: what kind of spectacular tablet would charge so much?
There are two possible outcomes for Indamixx 2 tablet: first, the final features of Indamixx 2 tablet are not really worth the price and thus few would purchase such a monstrously expensive slate; second, Indamixx 2 slate is able to make some breakthrough on tablets … Continue
It seems that I take more interest in android tablets but consciously or unconsciously ignore window 7 tablets. During the past few months, quite a few android tablets have kept popping up. It makes me feel like that the tablet pc makers are launching some easy-to-make toys instead of hi-tech devices which need long-time research and sophisticated design. Now more and more window 7 tablets are emerging on the surface. No matter whether some may argue that android is not yet mature enough for a tablet or window 7 is still not suitable for a mobile devices, like smartphones and tablets, tablet pc makers need an operating system installed in their tablets, either android or window … Continue
Advent Vega has been announced not long before a very similar android tablet, ViewSonic ViewPad 7, comes into our sight. Advent Vega can be considered high-end tablet among so many newly launched tablets, so it’s always good to see a similar android 2.2 tablet make an appearance. Though we are not sure whether ViewSonic, a display and screen maker rather than a smartphone or PC maker, can do a brilliant job, let’s welcome a new member joining into android tablets family. ViewPad, sounds like some apad or epad, what a familiar name! I guess the maker’s mind was occupied a little by iPad, either a competitor or a master which can be learned from.
Here is … Continue
I cannot specify why I draw a contrast between Huawei Ideos S7 and Walgreen Maylong M-150. Possibly, it isbecause they hit the tablet market at the same period of time. One belongs to the sort of medium price with common medium features, like Huawei Ideos S7 and ZTE V9 while the other has low price but mediocre features, such as Walgreen Maylong M-150 and Cherrypad America tablet. Of course, the yardsticks are those noted and expensive tablets, such as Advent Vega iPad and Samsung Galaxy. At any rate, tablet market is now boisterous with the competition clamor of various tablet pcs. The following is the contrast of specs between the two, Huawei S7and Maylong.
IPad is definitely the benchmark of tablets, ushering a grand tablet era. The keyword “iPad” will invariably appear in almost all the related articles about the newly announced or launched tablets. For instance, tablets no better than iPad can be called iPad clone, such like Cherrypad America; tablets can match with iPad in some ways can be named as iPad competitors, iPad rival or iPad contender, such as Dell Streak, Samsung Galaxy, HP Slate and Advent Vega. How about tablets better than iPad? What can we call it? There is no specific name for it since up till now no tablet can really threat the unique place of iPad. If any, we may … Continue
Steven Jobs’s remarks about android-based tablets and the 7’’ size two days ago somehow stirred not a little response. What’s said by such a influential person like Jobs may evolve into two direction, golden saying or arrant nonsense. But it seems that not everyone will agree with this genius, doubts and disputes are unavoidable.
Well, Jobs is quite confident in their Apple OS, since it works brilliantly with their successful mobile devices, ipad and iphone. The numbers of global sales and the fever of Apple fans readily prove the truth. He is bold to make such remarks in an era when android tablets are mushrooming at an amazing speed and 7’’ becomes the popular size for tablets.… Continue
