November 17, 2015 by Tom in Android Tablet, Chuwi, Other Tablet, Tablet, Windows Tablet with No Comments.

The new Chuwi eBook dual boot Android and Windows tablet ships with a stylus designed to work with its pressure-sensitive display that apparently supports 1024 levels of pressure. The tablet is a 10.1-inch slate with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. It runs on an Intel Atom Z3736F processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.   Maybe to accommodate the extra tech or just to keep the designing going, it runs on am 8,000mAh battery.   The rear camera is a 5MP OmniVision unit and on the front is a 2MP regular cam.   The downside is it dual boots to either Android 4.4 or Windows 8, both old versions.

November 10, 2015 by Tom in Apple, Other Tablet, Tablet with No Comments.

  Apple's biggest tablet, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, will be released November 11 - not just in the US but in 50 countries globally, across the regions of Europe, Asia and Canada.     Available first online, they will ship a couple of days after, so most early buyers should have one to play with at the weekend.   With such a large tablet, this will be one to watch to see how the adoring public reacts to Apple's big gamble.   Given the number of devotees Apple has, it's likely to be a successful launch but time will tell if the secondary buyers will be down with the extra bulk.   The basic 32GB WiFi model costs $799, while the 128GB model, complete with WiFi and data options, costs a massive $1,079.   Optional extras

E-reading and E-writing: new Onyx Boox high-res E-Reader

November 9, 2015 by Tom in Android Tablet, Other Tablet, Tablet with No Comments.

  With high-street retail stores removing the likes of Kindle from their shelves, what will it take to revitalise the E-ink reader market?   The flexible, 13.3-inch Onyx Boox reader is going to have a try early next year, with its 13.3-inch display at a huge 2200 x 1650 pixel resolution.   Originally due out in October, the Onyx Boox also has an inductive screen that will allow for a stylus to be used to write notes, draw and annotate, using Android as the bedrock OS.   The price is TBA but if it’s right there could be a slight swing back for the currently unexciting E-ink market.

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.

August 12, 2015 by Tom in Other Tablet, Tablet with No Comments.

The up-and-coming Sailfish OS should be expanding its range now a round of Jolla Developer Tablets have set sail to the hands of coders. The OS will be tuned while the apps are developed, fast-tracking the progress of the software. Sailfish is predominantly a smartphone OS currently so the first tweaks will be making it run in line with the quirks of tablets.   The Developer Tablets have a 7.85-inch, 2048 x 1535-pixel display with an IPS panel. They run on an Intel Atom quad core processor, backed up by 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage.   Customers who got onboard the crowdfunding campaign can expect their tablets later in the year, when hopefully a new slew of apps will be available.   Via tablet-news
