  • Is this Samsung’s Nexus 10? Nope, hoax

    Earlier this week leaked images of a Samsung-made Nexus 10, an Android KitKat tablet based on the much-loved Nexus 7, appeared on the internet. But now Evleaks, who’re mostly on the money when it comes to leaks and rumours, has discounted this as nothing more than a hoax, according to their last tweet: Pulled the "Nexus 10" tweet. Was sent to multiple publications, along with slightly differing "corroborating evidence." Signs of a hoax. — @evleaks (@evleaks) January 14, 2014 There were also leaked specifications, and the eagle-eyed among us would have known instantly that this was indeed a hoax. When people...

  • 2013’s top 4 Android tablets

    For many years it seemed as if Apple had a choke-hold on the smart device market. The introduction of the iPhone and then the iPad, coupled with the expense involved in purchasing one, meant that for many people tablets were very much a luxury purchase. As further smart devices make their way into the market, many consumers are realizing that the iPad is not the only option when it comes to tablet computing. In fact, many people are steering clear of Apple products in an effort to get away from their restrictive operating system and inflated prices – because...

  • UbiSlate 7Ci could be cheapest Android tablet yet

    The UbiSlate 7Ci comes from the UK, is made by Datawind, and sells for £30, sorry that’s actually £40 if you add a delivery charge, said CNET. It’s also a re-skinned, commercial model of India’s insanely popular Aakash 2. While it is a 7″ tablet, it’s no Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire HD. Take a gander at the extremely humble specifications: A 800×600 display, 512MB RAM, 4GB storage, WiFi, a Cortex A8 1GHz CPU and Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich). For those keen on a UbiSlate with a little more power, there’s the 7C+ for £70, and it comes with a...

  • Sharp Mebius Pad with impressive 10.1″ IGZO display coming early 2014

    Though the tablet was introduced earlier this year in September, the Mebius Pad from Sharp has now been announced and launches end of January 2014. Besides the powerful display, considering its design, the Mebius Pad can be used as both a durable tablet and a in-house desktop monitor. The 10.1″ tablet running Windows 8.1, has an incredible 2560×1600 IGZO LCD display. Compared to the iPad Air’s Retina 9.7″ 1024×768, this is a real contender and is one of the highest resolutions you’ll find on a Windows 8 tablet. Even Microsoft’s Surface 2 which was released in October, has a lesser 10.1″...

  • Getac’s F110 rugged Windows tablet launches, is apocalypse compatible

    Getac, who is known for creating rugged tech products for “demanding” environments, has just launched the F110 — an 11″ Windows tablet “built to survive harsh terrain.” Underneath the 1366×768 11.6″ display, you’ll find Intel’s 4th gen Core I7 vPro CPU together with Intel’s HD Graphics 4400.

  • Lenovo Yoga review: is this the future of tablet flexibility?

    There were tablets before the iPad, but none of them really made anything more than a splash in the market. Since then, Apple has sold millions of the things and completely dominated the space. Efforts to erode its market share meanwhile have mainly been undertaken using products that look remarkably like the iPad: flat rectangles. Sure, some of them were a bit smaller, but it only seems very recently that the big manufacturers have taken a look at the iPad and realised what the peripheral industry has known for a long time: the iPad’s design is not without flaws. With the...

  • Lenovo gets a bit flexible with Yoga tablet launch

    The world of tablets can be a little bit samey. Sure you might have size and colour variations, but for the most part you’re faced with the agonising choice of which flat rectangle to take. Chinese tech giant Lenovo — already dominant in the PC market and force to be reckoned with in the smartphone space — looked to change that today with the launch of its Yoga tablet. The tablet, which debuted at events in California, Beijing and Milan, is the company’s attempt to reimagine the tablet form factor. In order to do this, it claims, it spent...

  • Tizen launches tablet in Japan, but is for developers only

    Do you remember Tizen? If not, here’s a hint: it’s a Linux-based OS aimed at mobile devices and it’s available right now, if you’re a developer. And if you’re living in Japan. Tizen is also supported by industry bigwigs such as Intel and the so-hot-right-now Samsung. And the device, despite being “made for developers” is looking darn fancy indeed, said Liliputing. The specs are quite something. First off, the 10.1″ screen has an impressive 1920×1200 display and there’s 2GB RAM with 32GB internal storage to complement the 1.9Ghz quad-core CPU. It’s also possible to extend the memory a slight with...
