Asus Makes Eee Pad Slider Official With Press Release Following FCC Sighting

Posted on 31 July 2011

When we reported earlier in the week that the Asus Eee Pad Slider had passed through FCC approval, there was no official announcement from Asus. However, yesterday, the official press release announcing the device as part of the Asus product line went live on the Asus website. The official launch brings some additional tidbits that further pique our interest in this device. One of the trends that is disturbing me […]

Posted on 30 July 2011

Acer’s 7-inch Iconia Tab A100 should be available for purchase in early August, according to Engadget. The Iconia A100 looks like it will be the first 7-inch Honeycomb tablet to hit the market, come August. It’s also bringing a rather attractive price along with it – $300. Engadget doesn’t specify whether the information, which they obtained from an email sent to retail partners, indicates if the $300 price point is […]


New Joojoo Tablet Appears to Be on Its Way, Looks to Have Voice/Data Modem

Posted on 30 July 2011

Brad Linder over at Liliputing has spotted a device on it’s way through the FCC that appears to be a new device made by Fusion Garage, the company responsible for the failed Joojoo. Fusion Garage’s first device, the Joojoo, didn’t quite take off because it failed to deliver on many of the objectives that the project set out to conquer (cheap/easy to use/good battery life). The device wasn’t on sale […]

E-King Talent T9 Z670/Oaktrail Tablet – Official Specs

Posted on 30 July 2011

Another tablet in the mix! Multi-boot possibilities set this apart from the ARM-based tablets. The E-king range of UMPCs, by the company that bought the rights to the extremely productive (but very ugly) Wibrain B1/i1 and the slider M5 ultra mobile PC will soon have a 10” tablet offering called the Talent T9. It’s built on Intel’s Oaktrail and is said to be ‘the thinnest’ in the world. Whatever, China! […]

Acer Iconia A500 Enterprise Test Pt. 2 — the Business War So Far (and other strange things)

Posted on 29 July 2011

It has been 3 working days since I started my self-initiated challenge to have my Iconia A500 replace my HP 2730p at work. It took the first day to get it set up and configured, and a second day that I was out sick to really solidify how I was going to run the Acer for the foreseeable future. In that time, I have downloaded and applied the step up […]

Xoom Won’t See 4G Upgrade Until September, Motorola Ought to Apologize

Posted on 29 July 2011

Motorola is definitely going to get a bad rap for this one. Remember that Xoom that Motorola claimed would be the first 4G LTE tablet, once sent in for an after-sale upgrade? Yeah well the Xoom has been out for months now with no word on when that upgrade would become available. Today Samsung has officially beaten Motorola to offering the first tablet with 4G LTE, much to the chagrin […]

Fujitsu F-07C – Questionable Design Choices

Posted on 27 July 2011

As phone / PC combos go, this Fujitsu F-07C is definitely the smallest I’ve ever seen. It’s also the smallest PC I’ve ever seen. A 1.2Ghz Atom, 1.0GB of RAM and 32GB of storage sounds like it could work as we’ve seen similar set-ups in the past. 1024*600 screen resolution is ok too. You’ve got a slide-out keyboard, Wi-Fi and a docking port and a local RRP of $850. Sounds […]

Asus Eee Pad Slider Spotted Sliding Through the FCC

Posted on 27 July 2011

Cheesy headline aside… the second Asus Eee Pad, the Slider, is marching toward a US release as Wireless Goodness points out. The 10” tablet was recently caught attempting to tip-toe its way through the FCC. The Eee Pad Slider is another keyboard-equipped Honeycomb-running slate like the Eee Pad Transformer. While the Transformer’s keyboard actually detaches, the Slider goes for a different approach by allowing the screen to slide up to […]

Switching to the Acer Iconia Tab A500 for Business Use Only — Wish Me Luck!

Posted on 26 July 2011

Over the last 2 years, I have gone to work almost every day with my HP EliteBook 2730p Tablet PC. It has been a stalwart and constant companion. It has weathered many a day with me at work, both in the office and on travel, both good days and the bad. But at the two year mark, pretty much any device in my den is at risk of being retired, and […]
