Apple and Samsung are putting the finishing touches to giant new tablets

November 5, 2013

In the past, the likes of Wall Street Journal and others have claimed that both Apple and Samsung are working on 12-inch and 13-inch tablets with a view to bringing them to market in 2014, and that speculation has now ramped up a notch following the latest news on the grapevine.

Citing unidentified sources, Chinese media report that Apple may already be testing the much-rumored 12.9-inch iPad with partner Foxconn, although this is not in itself an unusual practise. After all, Apple regularly tests numerous different display sizes and doesn’t bring of all them to market.

Motorola forced to drop Xoom brand for future tablets

August 21, 2013

The American Lawyer reports that the two companies have come to a confidential agreement which will see Motorola “eventually phase out” its Xoom tablet brand.

Motorola first introduced the Xoom brand to the world at CES in 2010 where it announced the first Xoom tablet, a 10-inch slate running Android 3.0 (Honeycomb). This was the first Android operating system optimized for tablets.

The firm subsequently released the Xoom 2 and Xoom X Media Edition in late 2011 but has not yet returned to the tablet market.

OLPC’s affordable education tablet is heading to Walmart stores next week

July 10, 2013

In a recent blog post, the company said that the hybrid XO Tablet will launch at Walmart on July 16 before coming to other retailers in the U.S., Europe and in North and South America at a later date.

OLPC’s mission is to get affordable tablets in the hands of young children in developing countries, but that program has been somewhat stunted by delays in the past.

Prototype models turned up at CES 2011 and 2012 but, on announcing the latest model at this year’s show, there was at least the promise that an OLPC tablet would at last reach retailers later on in 2013.

The XO Tablet is believed to have a 7-inch 1024 x 600 resolution display, 8GB of memory, [...]

Qooq tablet gives chefs food for thought

It should come to little surprise that a French company launched a cooking tablet. The French do, after all, love their food.

Qooq unveiled the waterproof dual-core Linux tablet over a year ago at CES and promised at the time that it would be perfect for the kitchen environment.

It certainly cooks up a feast when it comes to the specifications. The QooQ tablet has a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 resolution display, is Wi-Fi-only and has connections for USB, Ethernet and an SD card slot. The device comes with 8GB of flash memory and a kick-back stand, and is also said to be drop-resistant.

Now available in the U.S. starting from [...]

Is this the most aggressive tablet forecast ever?

June 26, 2013

Tablets will account for about 80% of all computers sold by 2016, according to an article at the site Twice, quoting CEA researchers. The CEA is the group behind the giant CES consumer electronics show. 

A big part of tablet’s growth will come at the expense of PC sales as well as lower  cost tablet models. Jack Cutts, CEA’s business intelligence senior manager, said he expects $99 tablets to be available for this holiday shopping season. 

The desktop replacement cycle is also much slower than it is for tablets. An article in Dealerscope on the CEA event says the majority of consumers replace their desktops every 4.5 years and notebooks about [...]

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix tablet is now on sale…but it doesn’t come cheap

May 21, 2013

The company confirmed the news on Twitter and via email and also updated the ThinkPad Helix product page with price and reseller details.  

FCC filings for the ThinkPad Helix were logged in December of last year and the tablet subsequently appeared at CES a month later.

Despite this, the tablet — which boasts an 11.6-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 resolution) dock-able display, up to 256GB of SSD memory and a choice of Ivy Bridge processors — has since been struck down by numerous delays.

The tablet did eventually start shipping to pre-order buyers in April, although it was also reported that some buyers had managed to pick up the Windows 8 [...]
