Rumours of a Google Nexus tablet have gathered pace and it's almost certainly going to be a 7-incher from Asus.
A benchmark test run using Basemark has revealed some interesting facts. Going by the codename “Grouper” - Google has a history of codenaming its Nexus devices after fish - the tablet is said to have the model number “Nexus 7” which hints heavily at two important details.

Samsung Galaxy One Concept Design

Samsung Galaxy One Concept Design

Filed in: TabletsSamsung

Many manufacturers have already looked into integrating projectors into cell phone. But not a lot have talked about integrating one into a tablet. Today, Samsung unveiled their concept for the Galaxy One. This tablet runs Windows 8 and uses a variable-angle projector that can be used with the tablet being held in different positions. The tablet will include two mini stands that will tilt the tablet to a 10 degree angle. This will allow the user to place the device on a table and have the image be in the right location on the screen. Unfortunately, the concept designer did not release any specs about resolution or brightness, but there are many who would like to see Samsung actually build thi...

OmniVision has announced a new camera sensor designed to be used in smartphones, tablets, netbooks, ultrabooks. The OV2722 CameraChip is capable of recording native 1080p video, though its still image capabilities are limited to 2 megapixels. OmniVision says the new chip uses its OmniBSI+ pixel architecture that provides improved light sensitivity and image quality while still maintaining a module height of less than 3mm. The 1/6-inch chip has 1.4-micron pixels and promises to offer 10 percent better low light sensitivity than its predecessor. OmniVision says that the OV2722 is currently in volume production, but it did not say when we might see it used in actual devices.

ASUS MeMO 370T 7-inch tablet clears the FCC, leaves no trace of Ice Cream or Jelly behind

ASUS MeMO 370T 7-inch tablet clears the FCC, leaves no trace of Ice Cream or Jelly behind

Posted on May 30, 2012 by MG3

The 7-inch ASUS Eee Pad MeMO ME370T we saw in early prototype form during CES just passed through the FCC. It's still only showing WiFi radios with no trace of a cellular connection, although if it's going to be the $249 standard bearer NVIDIA and ASUS were so excited about, that's to be expected. A juicier rumor that has surfaced in the intervening period however, suggests this device will actually be released as a Google Nexus 7-inch tablet (or just sold from a Google store), and could even feature the next version of Android, codenamed Jelly Bean. It could also sell for as low as $149, although the cheaper reworked version might swap out the Tegra processor for one from Qualcomm. We didn'...

ASUS teases new Transformers for Computex debut

ASUS teases new Transformers for Computex debut

Posted on May 29, 2012 by MG3

Filed in: TabletsASUS

ASUS loves a good teaser, and its Computex 2012 promo is a fine example of the breed: ominous voice, vague mention of the cloud, and a hint of a new Transformer dockable tablet. “Don’t get set into one form, adapt it and build your own” the video – which you can see after the cut – suggests, in what’s almost certainly a reference to ASUS’ recent drive for tablets that can be slotted into battery-toting keyboards, and phones that dock into slates.

80-inch Windows 8 tablet already exists - in Microsoft CEO's office

Posted on May 28, 2012 by MG3

An 80-inch touchscreen Windows 8 tablet already hangs on the wall of Microsoft CEO’s Steve Ballmer - and it could soon be made available to the public.
This is according to Frank Shaw, Microsoft vice-president, who said of Ballmer’s giant tablet added: “He’s got rid of his phone, he’s got rid of his notepaper. It’s [the tablet)] his whiteboard, his email machine, and it’s a device we’re going to sell.”
Interestingly the current version of the device - the one that hangs on Ballmer’s wall - runs on Windows 8 it but is actually made by a different manufacturer.

Posted on May 28, 2012 by MG3

Have we finally found a tablet match for the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note? ViewSonic sent around a teaser for its "Touch and Connect" series prototypes, including a 22-inch "smart business tablet monitor," powered by what appears to be Ice Cream Sandwich.

Filed in: TabletsDell

After a number of failed attempts in the Android tablet market, Dell is looking to readdress the tablet space with Windows 8. According to a leaked document obtained by Neowin, Dell will launch a 10.8-inch tablet with 1,366 x 768-pixel resolution and a dual-core Atom processor later this year.

Dell Latitude 10 and XPS 12 Windows 8 tablet images surface

Posted on May 28, 2012 by MG3

While Dell has previously promised a Windows 8 enterprise tablet "on the exact day" the new operating system debuts, we haven't heard any firm plans for its consumer offerings. Neowin has posted two separate images of what it claims are Dell's two Windows 8 tablets. The XPS 12 is said to be a convertible 12.5-inch tablet (similar to the company's Inspiron Duo) with an edge-to-edge Gorilla Glass display, due in late 2012.

ASUS Transformer Pad TF300TL hits the FCC with AT&T-friendly LTE

ASUS Transformer Pad TF300TL hits the FCC with AT&T-friendly LTE

Posted on May 28, 2012 by MG3

ASUS isn't known for offering its tablets to North American carriers with 3G or 4G; an FCC filing for a cellular-capable Transformer Pad TF300 could be a clue at a break in the WiFi-only trend. Along with the usual wireless, a TF300TL variant of the Android 4.0 slate has stopped by the agency with the 850MHz and 1,900MHz frequencies needed for HSPA 3G as well as, best of all, 700MHz and 1,700MHz support for LTE-based 4G. All four are what we'd look for in an AT&T-oriented tablet, so don't be surprised if Ma Bell carries a 4G Transformer Pad before long. All but the 700MHz band would be handy for Canadian networks as well. There's no surefire evidence of when the tablet might make a more form...

There are plenty of great apps already on the App Store and Google Play store for opening and editing Microsoft Office files, but tablet owners may soon have the best option of all: The real McCoy.
Rumors circulated a few months back about the existence of Microsoft Office for iOS after The Daily reported on a source who claimed to have seen the elusive app in action.

Google’s 7-inch Nexus tablet is believed to be released sometime in July

Google’s 7-inch Nexus tablet is believed to be released sometime in July

Posted on May 28, 2012 by MG2

Filed in: TabletsGoogle

Summer is looking to be a scorcher, but if the reports about Google’s Nexus branded tablet surely turns out to be true, we can potentially see it come to market as soon as July. Come to think about it, that’s not too far off at this point, as we’re nearing the start of the summer season.

From what’s being reported, it seems that the 7-inch Google Nexus tablet will ship in June with an estimated initial volume of 600,000 units. Previously believed to launch in May, it seems that the date was pushed back due to unsatisfactory marks regarding its design. Furthermore, the cost attached to it was simply too much to swallow for a device expected to flaunt a price point as low as $199. Hence the r...
