HP Debuts Pro Tablet 408 G1
By Luke Jones on Friday January 02, 2015

HP has quietly launched a new tablet on its website, opting not to reveal the device at next week's CES trade show in Las Vegas. That's because the HP Pro Tablet 408 G1 is not a particularly exciting slate and the PC giant is gearing it towards enterprise users and not general consumers. That's not to say you can't buy it, and it's arguably better than the company?s HP Stream 8.

Onda iPad Air Copy comes with Android 4.4 and Windows 8.1
By Luke Jones on Wednesday December 31, 2014

Apple's iPad Air 2 is the best tablet on the market, and no I am not an Apple die-hard in the slightest (as my Android smartphone will attest). However, the Air 2 sets the standard in terms of getting the most things right, but even this amazing slate is lacking something. It, and indeed a multitude of Android tablets cannot offer the kind of productivity offered by Windows 8.1 tablets that rock a full PC OS.

Nokia's recently announced N1 tablet is a monumental device in the company's history as the Finnish giant is starting all over again. After selling its devices division to Microsoft, Nokia is starting as a new entity and this is its first hardware step in a new direction.

LG are in the Windows tablet/convertible market now after releasing the Tab Book Duo, a slate none of us saw coming and one that boasts a battery life that rivals iPads and Android tablets.

Jolla easily managed to reach its crowdfunding target on Indiegogo and the campaign has now come to an end with the company able to build its Sailfish running Jolla Tablet. The company managed to raise $1,824,055, much more than the $380,000 the Finnish brand was originally asking for.

By Luke Jones on Monday December 08, 2014

Panasonic are one of many Japanese electronics giants who completely missed the boat with mobile and let other companies steal a march on them in the market. The company still makes smartphones though and some of its efforts are very good, like the Touchpad FZ-E1, a handset that is perfect for the kind of person who like to go toe to toe with Mother Nature.

Toshiba TT301 Slate is 24-inch Tablet
By Luke Jones on Monday December 08, 2014

Big tablets have never quite worked, at least on the Android platform. I played extensively with the HP Slate 21 and while I like the concept, apps on Android were just not ideal for such a big screen, but Windows is of course another matter. The latest product to prove that is probably the Toshiba TT301, a slate that has a huge 24-inch screen.

The Chinese company is going to go after Samsung again in 2015 and the first product to do that will be a new tablet. Of course, Xiaomi already makes a slate, but this device will chart a course for Samsung's market share once again.
