Apple poaches Burberry chief exec to boost retail efforts

October 15, 2013

Ahrendts joins Apple as the senior vice president for retail and online stores and will be responsible of overseeing the strategy, expansions and general operations of these stories. She will report direct to Tim Cook.

Ahrendts, who was chief executive at fashion retailer Burberry for almost 10 years, isn’t the first left-field choice Apple has made when it comes to retail personnel. Back at the start of last year, the firm surprisingly hired John Browett, formerly of UK retailer Dixons Retail, only for the exec to depart just 10 months later.

This latest recruitment may well fuel speculation that Apple is looking to ramp up [...]

Microsoft admits Surface RT tablet caused ‘some confusion’

October 14, 2013

When speaking to Australian publication ARN recently, Microsoft exec Jack Cowett – who works on marketing the Surface tablets – inferred that some consumers didn’t know the difference between the Surface Pro and Surface RT.

“We think that there was some confusion in the market last year on the difference between Surface RT and Surface Pro,” said Cowett. “We want to help make it easier for people, and these are two different products designed for two different people.”

Microsoft has since dropped the ‘RT’ for its latest Windows RT tablet, with the tablets now simply called Surface and Surface Pro. Microsoft has [...]

UK’s National Health Service prescribes Fujitsu Windows 8 tablets for patient satisfaction survey

October 14, 2013

Since April 2013, patients have been asked whether they would recommend hospitals and clinics to their friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment.

The program, called the “Friends and Family Test” is being made available in several locations around the UK including Birmingham and Solihull Mental HealthNHS Foundation Trust (BSMHFT) and their partnered charities. The surveys are given out to every patient in every ward in a specially enclosed kiosk. Administrators will use the results to give hospitals a better understanding of what patients need and recommendations on how to make the improvements.

After evaluating the tablet hardware [...]

Why dirty smartphones & tablets are a massive health risk

September 17, 2013

In the past, concerns have been raised on how health can be effected by too much screen time (particularly in education), the ‘tablet hunch’ and desktop keyboards, with the latter two in particular often cited for causing posture problems and bringing about repetitive strain injury.

However, while those issues may not cause any serious health issues, the latest report from a consumer watchdog suggests that mobile devices are a real risk when it comes to cleanliness.

In a new report, UK product-testing charity Which details that smartphones, tablets and desktop keyboards often carry “hazardous” levels of germs, with these sometimes bringing about [...]

Nokia might announce a new phablet or tablet tomorrow

July 22, 2013

In a note on its Nokia Conversations blog, the company said that it ‘can’t tell you what it is yet’ but advised visitors to return to the blog for the announcement at 9.a.m UK time on Tuesday.

Nokia announced its high-end Lumia 1020 smartphone in New York just a few days ago, which could mean that the announcement is a new tablet or phablet device.

Online reports suggest that it could be for the Nokia Lumia 625, a mid-range Windows Phone 8 device but with a 4.7-inch screen and dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor.

A first tablet from Nokia looks much less unlikely, given the firm’s recent decision to abandon its Windows RT [...]

Indian government gears up to launch fourth-gen Aakash tablet

July 4, 2013

Times of India reports that the entry-level tablet’s specifications are currently being finalized but claims that the government will demand that the model has a 7-inch 800 x 480 resolution display, at least 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and the Android Jelly Bean OS (presumably Android 4.1).

What is less clear though is whether UK vendor Datawind will continue working on the project. The manufacturer developed the first three versions of the Aakash tablet, but the firm’s relationship with the government has since deteriorated because of missed deadlines and withheld payments.

ZDNet’s Nitin Puri has an extensive breakdown of the history of [...]

July 2, 2013

But Windows 8 tablets got a boost from BA CityFlyer this week when the British Airways subsidiary announced it’s the first UK airline to deploy Panasonic’s rugged Toughpad tablets for flights operating out of London City Airport.

Specifically, Toughpad FZ-G1 tablets running Windows 8 Professional, are being used by engineers and flight crew on each of the airline's aircraft.

The Toughpad is used to record the aircraft flight details, technical data associated with each flight and provides real time maintenance status of the aircraft.

As the flight and technical details are entered into the Toughpad using the touchscreen the information is [...]
