5 Best iPad speaker docks

April 12, 2015

Although the audio capabilities of modern tablets have come a long way, offering more than adequate sound for a round of your favorite game or a quick video chat with a friend, they are still a little weak when it comes to music. Sure, there are tablets with front facing stereo speakers, like the Nexus 9 – equipped with HTC’s BoomSound technology – and the Sony Z3 Tablet Compact, but then there are tablets like the iPad, that have speakers situated on the bottom edge of the device, or worse, pointing straight out the back.

Cranking the volume or cupping your hand around your tablet to redirect sound toward your ears is good enough for personal use in most [...]

Video claims to be first look at redesigned, easier to hold, iPad 5

September 4, 2013

The video by Unbox Therapy shows a narrower form factor (about half a quarter coin narrower on each side or 1.5 centimeters overall), though the viewable screen size, which now goes closer to the edge of the unit, is the same 9.7-inches as current iPads.

Other features borrow from the iPad mini including upgraded speakers and, with the new form factor, the ability for someone, as the narrator says, with “normal to large hands” to hold the device with one hand.

Apple doesn’t comment on unannounced products. New iPads were at one time rumored to be set for release in September, but now a September 10 event Apple has planned is looking like it will focus [...]

Is this the first image of Samsung’s Galaxy Gear smartwatch?

September 2, 2013

Ahead of the expected unveiling at the IFA technology convention in Germany this week, VentureBeat writer Christina Farr got a peak at a prototype of the device.

In her report, Farr details that the watch is about 3-inches diagonally and with dark black and grey coloring, although this may change in the final version of the product.

Farr notes that the Galaxy Gear smartwatch looks “clunky and masculine” but says that Bluetooth can be used to connect with Galaxy S smartphones, tablets and potentially other Android devices too.

Wi-Fi is supported for light Internet browsing and email and there are Android apps pre-loaded for social media, health [...]

Ubuntu launches ambitious Android superphone for the enterprise project

July 22, 2013

This will be "a new class of device which brings forward what we see as the inevitable convergence of the phone and the PC," aimed primarily at enterprises and enthusiasts — "people like us," said Ubuntu chief Mark Shuttleworth. 

Canonical is using Indiegogo in hopes of raising $32 million over 30 days that will finance a limited production run of 40,000 phones.

Shuttleworth said the plan to build only tens of thousands of phones (rather than a mass market device) will afford easier access to the most advanced components. 

Preliminary specs for the Ubuntu Edge include a multi-core processor with at least 4GB of [...]

Microsoft’s 128GB Surface Pro tablet available for $400 next week, but here’s the catch…

May 31, 2013

The Redmond giant will offer attendees to its TechEd conference in New Orleans next week the opportunity to buy a Surface RT with Touch Cover for $99.99, or the 128GB Surface Pro for just $400 — over half its normal price.

Despite the deals, it is worth noting that TechEd attendance itself doesn't come cheap. 

Access to the full conference costs $2,195, although a TechExpo-only ticket is just $225.

TechEd attendees, including customers, partners, press, third-party speakers and staff, will be able to buy the tablets at the discounted prices.

TabTimes Tablet Strategy conference comes to San Francisco on February 20, 2013

October 31, 2012

At the very successful first edition of the Tablet Strategy conference, last April in New York City, many attendees requested that we hold a similar event closer to Silicon Valley.

This is why, in 2013, Tablet Strategy will be a two event series. The first one, Tablet Strategy West, will take place on February 20 at the Marriott Waterfront, a splendid hotel with spectacular views of the Bay located near the San Francisco airport, just north of Silicon Valley. The second Tablet Strategy conference will be held two months later in New York City.

Tablet Strategy conferences allow business and IT managers involved in tablet projects to share their experiences, and discuss [...]

iPad 4 could have carbon fiber body, flexible widescreen display with integrated speakers

September 28, 2012

The first of these rumors came from tech site Examiner which, citing an industry analyst, reported that the next-generation iPad could feature a 16:9 widescreen display.

“I have talked to at least three people close to Apple who say that there are new iPad prototypes that have a 16:9 aspect ratio,” Los Angeles analyst Paul Mueller.

“They aren't talking about the upcoming iPad Mini either.”

The 16:9 aspect ratio already features on the new iPhone 5 and is commonly used for widescreen HD TVs.

Following on from that and it appears as though Apple could make this a flexible display with built-in speakers, according to Unwired [...]
