Dell Streak 7 Android Tablet on the Way, WiFi Certification and Commercial Concept Leaks as Evidence

Posted on 24 December 2010

Way back in February at MWC Chippy spoke with a Dell representative who confirmed that the Dell Streak (aka Mini 5) was one of a family of upcoming devices. Since then we saw leaked renders in April of a 7” and 10” Streak device courtesy of Engadget. Jump to almost 9 months later and we find a Streak device passing through WiFi certification.

Asus Windows Slate EP121 Coming to CES, I’ve Pretty Much Already Got One and I’m Already Not Impressed

Posted on 24 December 2010

Looks like it’s hard for most huge companies to do anything these days that hasn’t already achieved band-wagon status. I mean, what do we expect… that these companies will actually take a risk one of these days? Yeah, right.

Case in point, Asus is teasing a Windows slate to be released at CES 2011 (which Chippy will be attending). They’re calling it the EP121, and it’ll have a 12” capacitive touchscreen, HDMI output, SD slot, webcam, and “full HD playback”. Exhilarating features, I know. Here’s their promo video:

Viliv Teases X7, X70 and X10 Android and Windows Tablets for CES

Posted on 22 December 2010

What would CES be without a good tease? We don’t have any more information than in the pictures but we’re definitely meeting with Viliv at an early stage at CES to find out more about the X7 ‘Anywhere Connectivity’ Android tablet and the X10 and X70. We suspect the latter is a re-design of the original X70 EX using Oaktrail and Windows 7 but as we said, there’s no information […]

The Only Way for Sony’s PSP Phone to Succeed: Second Generation PSP Gaming, Release Two Devices

Posted on 21 December 2010

Back in October, I urged Sony to get back to innovating in the handheld market and inspiring us once again. For a company whose tagline is “Make. Believe.” They’ve certainly done that lately – making me believe that they want to copy a company like HP rather than being innovative and imaginative like they once were. I looked toward the whispers of the so called “PSP Phone” that’s recently made […]

Motorola Teases a Tablet… Google Shows it off on Video

Posted on 21 December 2010

Motorola recently posted a rather humorous video teaser for an upcoming tablet product on YouTube. Their video isn’t too original with its play on the tablet pun as it runs through various “tablets”, from the Rosetta Stone to the 10 Commandments. There’s a brief and humorous sentence about each tablet, including the iPad “It’s like a giant iPhone but… it’s like a giant iPhone” and the Galaxy Tab “Android OS, […]

Nokia N8 + Galaxy Tab Companions for CES Tested

Posted on 21 December 2010

We’re all unique customers and all have our unique requirements. I categorise myself as th ‘boy scout’ type. I am not a fan of highly converged devices (the N900 was not something for me) but I do like being prepared with a good, mobile set of kit. I have a tendancy to want to cover as many scenarios as possible with my mobile devices but I balance that with the […]

Posted on 20 December 2010

Now that we’ve finally got some proof that the Notion Ink Adam is at least available as a working sample (below,) lets have a chat about it. Notion Ink have had no shortage of media coverage about their device and unique features such as daylight-readable screen and Tegra 2 platform running 2.2 with a custom UI mean there are interesting things to discuss. Fans seem to be following too. In […]
