iPad Magazines Encourage 'Exploration,' May Be a Boon to Advertisers

With print media on the decline, many publishers were counting on tablets like the iPad to usher in a new era of interactive media, which would potentially save magazines from obsolescence and extinction. But a new study by Bonnier (the home of publications such as Popular Science and Field & Stream) and advertising firm CP&B has discovered what some might consider a serious problem:...

iPad 2 Reviews Are In: Long Live the King

The first batch of iPad 2 reviews have landed. Predictably, most reviewers can't speak more highly of the latest Apple tablet. Then again, as Laptop Magazine's Mark Spoonauer points out, "Apple didn't need to do a lot to stay in the tablet lead." This isn't Apple playing catch-up or exploding into a new market; this the Cupertino crew simply treading water. And, if the reviews are to be...

We Manhandle Motorola's Xoom Android Tablet

Motorola took the wraps off its new Honeycomb-based tablet, the Xoom, yesterday afternoon at a press conference. Just a few hours later, we had the handsome slate in our greedy paws. When the Xoom lands later this year, it will be pushing the just-announced Android 3.0, which, designed specifically for tablets, features a dual core 1Ghz processor and 1GB of RAM. (All that power is needed to push...

Case Maker Sneaks iPad 2 Mockup Into CES

A company called Dexim showed up at CES with a fancy new iPad case in tow -- but it's not exactly what you think. The black book-style case has a Bluetooth keyboard, which magnetically attaches to a cover that folds down and allows you to whip up e-mails in a laptop-like position. What makes the case particularly intriguing, though, is that it's not designed for the iPad you may or may not be...

ASUS Ushers in CES Tablet Bonanza

We all knew that this year's CES would be loaded with tablets, and ASUS made sure to kick off the party right by introducing not one, but four new tablet PCs at the first official press conference of CES 2011. All four are members of the Eee family of devices, but that's about where the similarities end. We'll be heading over to the ASUS booth at some point to get a hands-on with all four, but...

Vizio Unveils Android Tablet and Phone, Google TV and Cheap 3-D

Vizio made a name for itself by selling tons of affordable, yet quality, flat-screen TVs, and helping make the HDTV more of a standard household accessory. Now the company wants to do the same for smartphones and tablets. Details about the eight-inch Via Tablet and four-inch Via Phone are not 100-percent filled in, but we do know that they'll be arriving this summer, and that they'll be running...

NOOKcolor Shines With Magazines, Disappoints With Books

The NOOKcolor is the first of its kind: a serious, full-color e-reading device. Sure, the iPad and Galaxy Tab have found some success moonlighting as virtual readers, but they're first and foremost devices for apps and browsing the Web. Plus, they're a lot more expensive. The NOOKcolor is $249 of straight-up, reading-focused hardware and software. You can still browse the Web and do other things...

Massive San Francisco Touch Screen Makes Riding MUNI Palatable, Perhaps Even Fun

In the past couple years, the experience of waiting for public transportation has morphed into a daily opportunity to play around with the electronic device of your choice.

Sakshat, the Laughed-At $35 Indian Tablet, Reportedly Set for Early 2011 Launch

Defying skeptics everywhere, the gadget with the funny name and an absurdly low price will reportedly arrive in India this January. Rumors concerning the Sakshat -- a minimally priced, government-endorsed Indian Android tablet -- have circulated for more than a year. The device, which was designed for students and folks typically unable to afford a computer, reportedly has a manufacturer, a...

HP Reminds Us They Have a Tablet, Too

Apple may have made a big splash with the iPad this weekend, but HP wasn't about to sit quietly on the sidelines and let the Cupertino boys hog the spotlight. We first caught a glimpse of the HP Slate at CES, and the manufacturer (with a little help from Adobe) has yet to pass up a chance to take pot-shots at Apple's netpad-light, over-sized iPhone, toy-tablet device. The latest comes in the...

Drowning in the CES Pool of Slate PCs

We're sure someone out there has already dubbed this the year of the tablet, and it's hard to blame them. Gadget makers all over CES were showing off slate and tablet devices of every stripe, some running NVIDIA's Tegra platform and Android, and some using Intel hardware to push Windows and Linux. But through the chaos, clear trends were forming, dividing lines being drawn. There were also a...
