  • Fujitsu Japan shows off Windows 7-powered tablet with built-in hardware keyboard

  • Samsung starts rolling out Gingerbread updates for Galaxy Tab

    Samsung's Galaxy Tab has been out on the market for a fairly long period time already, and needless to say it can be quite disheartening when the Korean OEM has been keeping its lips sealed as to whether its tablet will ever receive an upgrade path to a newer version of the Android operating system.

  • Cloned iPad 2 to surface in China next month

    Let's be honest here; everyone knows that it is only a matter of time before any best-selling electronic toy gets a 'friendly' version of itself, courtesy of the very enterprising Chinese OEMs. That being said, it is indeed surprising that the Chinese factories would be willing to give Apple's new toy two months of lead

    Mention the words 'tablet PC' to most consumers and chances are the mental image they will conjure about such a device is one that runs on ARM processors and comes preloaded with an operating system that is anything but Microsoft's Windows.

    When Creative launched its ZiiO tablet last year, many techies were understandably more interested in the unique ZiiLabs stemcell processor that was being used to supply the ZiiO's processing power, as opposed to being interested in the tablet as most average consumers would be.

  • ViewSonic launches the ViewPad 4 and V350 in Taiwan

    On Tuesday, ViewSonic launched two new smartphones, although the company prefers to call one of them a tablet for some reason.

As such we have the ViewPad 4, 4.1-inch "tablet" and
