HP Spectre x2 is their thinnest 2-in-1 laptop/tablet and sports B&O sound

October 13, 2015 by Tom in HP, Tablet with No Comments.

The HP Spectre x2 2-in-1 tablet is just 8mm thick, slimming down from previous efforts and packing in an Intel Core M processor. The tablet has a 12-inch touch panel display with a 1080p resolution and 150-degree viewing angle, complete with a bundled HP Active Pen stylus. The rear camera is an 8MP unit and the front-facer is an Intel RealSense camera. Sound is taken care of with swanky Bang & Olufsen tuned dual speakers, the inclusion of which hints toward the premium price tag. It supports 4G connectivity and uses two USB 3.0 Type C connectors. The standard storage option is 256GB and it will launch this October, costing £849 (US$1,300). Via pocket-lint

HP Envy Note 8 Windows tablet has a touch of netbook about it

October 8, 2015 by Tom in HP, Tablet, Windows Tablet with No Comments.

When combined with its dedicated keyboard, the new HP Envy Note 8 has a quaint modern-retro touch of a netbook about it. Cleverly, HP hasn't consigned the keyboard to matching the 8-inch display, it is instead a larger unit so the tablet is more stable and typing will be easier with a more standard sized keyboard. The 8-inch display has a 1,920 x 1,200 pixel resolution and the tablet runs on an Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor. Battery life is six hours and the tablet ships with a stylus included in the basic pack (US$329), while the keyboard bundle costs $429. [gallery link="file"]   Via engadget

e-ink Noteslate SHiRO finally available and updated to roll with the times

October 7, 2015 by Tom in Tablet with No Comments.

Long after the first rumblings back in 2011, the Noteslate SHiRO e-ink tablet is available to pre-order.   The tablet works as both a standard e-book reader and, more notably, a notepad with which you can scribble ideas and drawings using the accompanying stylus.   The SHiRO has a 1080 x 1440 pixel resolution and runs on a low-power FreeScale SoloLite processor clicked at 1GHz.   Power can be saved further with the choice of modes: grayscale or the more efficient 1-bit mode.   It’s a simple but neat looking unit and could prove genuinely useful for those who want a digital notebook but not the weight, glare and battery life of a regular tablet.   The tablet will ship in March 2016 and is available to pre-order now for $199.

Google introduces the Pixel C 2-in-1 Android tablet to rival the Surface

October 3, 2015 by Tom in Android Tablet, Tablet with No Comments.

A new challenger to the Microsoft Surface 2-in-1 tablet is the Google Pixel C - an Android unit that has all the super-sleek and slim touches of a premium tablet along with a magnetic keyboard stand for a more traditional laptop style. The 7mm-thick Pixel C "convertible" follows in the footsteps of the Chrombook Pixel and is made of aluminium. It has a 10.2-inch, 2,560 x 1,800-pixel display at 308ppi, which'll give brilliant results. The rear cam is 8MP and the front-facer is 2MP. The brains of the operation are top notch, running on an NVIDIA Tegra X1 processor with 3GB of RAM. It's also going to be relatively cheap at launch when it's out at Christmas. The 32GB model will be $499 and the 64GB model is $599 - both plus $149 for the keyboard. [gallery link="file"] Vi

New 10-inch Amazon Fire tablet image leak sparks move to Android rumours

September 18, 2015 by Tom in Android Tablet, Other Tablet, Tablet with No Comments.

Amazon could be moving away from its Fire OS in favour of the more standard Android. This idea has come about through a leaked image of a new 10-inch Amazon Fire tablet which has a particularly Android-y display. Amazon has recently announced a a sub-$50 6-inch tablet that'll be with us by Christmas, as well as the new 4K Fire TV box, but they may have at least one more trick up their sleeve if this image is anything to go by. There's a chance this could be a hoax image but given the continued innovation from Amazon (as well as the 6-pack gimmick of the new tablets) this could be the next step in their bid to increase their tablet market share.
