All Things D is reporting that Apple will hold an event on March 2nd in San Francisco to launch the second generation iPad. The timing of the event negates earlier reports that the iPad 2 would be delayed until this fall. While invites haven't gone out yet, Kara Swis...
If you have a couple of hours to kill and didn't get enough of all of yesterday's WebOS device news, feel free to watch the below video.
I finally got to spend some time taking a look at the Kno at CES 2011. For those of you not in the Kno, the dual screen tablet is supposed to be the e-textbook and note-taking device of the future.
Speck introduced a pair of rugged iPhone 4 case at CES 2011. The ToughSkin has two layers of protection, including a rubber layer to soften drops.
ArtRage is showing off its painting applications at CES. While the best I can manage to draw on an iPad is something that resembles a first grader's finger painting, some artists can create some really good looking stuff. Here's a photo of ArtRage for iPad in act...
NEC had a prototype of the LT-W on hand in Las Vegas at an event last night. The device is comprised of a pair of 7" resistive-touch displays and runs on Android.
Leaving expensive gadgets in hotel rooms can be stressful. While I've never had a gadget go missing from a hotel room, I always worry that a bad guy will swipe anything that I leave out.
End of the year means it's time to fill out of those "Best of" lists, and Freescale is back at it with their hunt for the top 20 Smart Mobile Device Pundits of 2011.
AT&T announced it's 5th Annual developer summit yesterday. Good news for those headed out to Vegas for CES 2011, you can knock out two birds with one flight.

The Dell Inspiron Duo made quite a splash at IDF 2010 when it debuted on stage on Tuesday. Yesterday the Inspiron Duo made another appearance, this time at Intel's App Up Elements conference.
Earlier today I mentioned that the WeTab (formerly known as the WePad) is getting a lot of attention here at IDF 2010. I got a chance to catch up with 4tiitoo CTO Stephan Odoerfer, who gave me a full walkthrough of the device.
The OpenPeak OpenTablet 7 will become consumer's '4th screen' if AT&T and other OpenPeak partners have their ways. The seven-inch device looks promising and I can definitely see it going mainstream once AT&T and other providers throw some marketing muscle behind...
Whatever Apple has in store for us at their event today, their broadcast of the event may be the big story in and of itself. Not only are they broadcasting video themselves, but they're doing it via HTTP Live Streaming, a sign they think their standard is ready for prim...
Fujitsu may have given me the best reason to join Facebook yet. They're giving away a Lifebook T730 Tablet PC to one lucky person who likes them on Facebook. (more...).
In case you needed more incentive or time to submit an entry for the 2010 Workshop on the Impact of Pen-Based Technology on Education (WIPTE), the organization has announced that winning entrants will receive accommodations for two nights at the conference.
Got a reminder today that this year's Workshop on the Impact of Pen-Based Technology on Education a.k.a. WIPTE is quickly approaching.
WIPTE, Workshop on the Impact of Pen-Based Technology on Education, just announced the winner of their 2009 contest, and already it's time to solicit entries for this year. The 2010 Workshop on the Impact of Pen-Based Technology on Education (WIPTE) will be held on Oct...
Not 100% sure the iPad screen is exactly 4:3, but it sure isn't widescreen. Looked blocky to me, but then I remembered the fuss when Tablet PCs transitioned from 4:3 to widescreen.
If you placed your bets on the iPad just being a big iPhone, you definitely lost money. As seen in the shot of its email operation (via Engadget), you can pull down an email list that looks like what's on your iPhone, but it's down a column, not spread across the screen...
Steve Jobs just unveiled the iPad and Engadget posted this picture live from the event in San Francisco. The image shows a big fat missing Flash object on the home page of the NY Times.
Unfortunately CoverItLive isn't ready for prime time, so we're going to end the experiment before it really began. We'll update this post with Apple news, specs and details as it rolls in. WC: Jobs says Apple is a Mobile Device Company.
The Mobile World Congress show in Spain is coming up in less than a month, and already there are "leaks" about what announcements will take place there.
WIPTE, the Workshop on the Impact of Pen-based Technology on Education, has announced the winner of their video contest looking for the best example that delivers that "impact".
Waiting to board the plane home, half dazed from an exhausting week, I looked back at the week, thinking about my mobile setup at what worked and what didn't.
One thing Xavier emphasized repeatedly to our team of CES newbies is to introduce ourselves to our fellow bloggers. Best advise he could have given because it was easily the highlight of the trip. (more...).
Samsung really went all out this year at CES with display areas dedicated to all sorts of little details, like the various aspects of their mobile phone platform, and demos that go beyond their field, such as an artist doing caricatures in digital ink. (more...).
I really enjoyed meeting Sumocat for the first time and hanging out with him all week. We didn't get him to wear the As Seen on TV Hat, but he did perform a few tricks for us.
The ThinkPad X100e was announced at CES 2010 and is now the most affordable ThinkPad available. Starting at just $449, the Thinkpad X100e is an ultraportable business users, especially current ThinkPad users, will appreciate.
Finishing my first full day on the show floor. One thing I need to get off my mind before I forget is the absurd number of companies making eReaders.
Made my way clear across the show, North Hall to South, to try to see HP's wares I but they just aren't meeting with press aside from their arranged events.
Only hitting one event today. Finally getting to spend serious time on the floor. Live at Last Gadget Standing. Not giving it the full liveblog treatment, just jotting quick notes.
Finally! We found the Wacom booth at CES and put our hands (and pen) on several products, including a Fujitsu Tablet PC. Not having the best luck with using multi-touch and pen simultaneously.
We got our hands on the latest eReaders at the Marvell booth. The enTourage eDGe and Alex from Spring Design were both there. Amy shares her thoughts on the Alex.
Speck Products got the hook up! You need a giant bag to store your entire mobile office? Speck! Want beer, Jolly Rancher and Laffy Taffy? Speck! Want to dance, dance, dance? Speck! Amy talks about her bag problem in video one.
