Using a combination of facial recognition and Bluetooth authentication, the HP Elitebook 2760p provides a more secure method of logging in with nothing more than a smile and a smartphone. Pants optional.
The HP Elitebook 2760p convertible notebook features a quick-start option called HP QuickWeb, a rebrand of the Splashtop "instant-on" OS, based on Chromium.
Got my hands on the ARMOR X7 from DRS Technologies, the smaller brother to the X10gx I reviewed earlier. But don't let the size fool you: it's definitely tough enough.
With the release of the Tega v2 and the HP Slate 500 many a Tableteer has been hoping, and some have been praying that the slate form factors will handle Digital Inking well on capacitive screens.
Here it is, the main event: Xavier spends nearly fifteen minutes with the HP Slate 500 Tablet PC in this first-look at the Windows 7 slate.
Scott from SCOTTEVEST (SeV) sent over an Outback jacket for me to check out. This jacket's a little different than all the other SeV gear I use, which is primarily designed for travel.
Well, you asked for it. Now you've got it. I know why they call Thomasin my better half. A number of GBM Readers asked to see and hear my wife's take on the Tega v2 Slate and here it is in all its unvarnished glory.
This is a tough review to write. First, Hugo Ortega, the man behind TegaTech and the Tega v2 is a friend and a Tablet/UMPC/Mobile promoter without equal, and I'd love for him to succeed with this new dual booting slate. Second, although I have always had my doubts, I...
Can't say I have a particular need for a rugged Tablet PC capable of withstanding dust and debris, crashes against the pavement, a jog through the rain, or explosive environments.
While BlackBerry devices may arguably have the best mobile keyboard experience, there are few people that can type faster on any mobile device than they can speak.
First up, before I get to the subject of this InkShow, thank you from the bottom of my heart and from my family for all the kind wishes, prayers, and support the GBM community has offered on the occasion of the passing of my Mother.
At tech conferences the talk in the press room at some point turns away from the gadgets being presented and to what we're actually using.Here's a video of the gear I'm carrying this week at IDF 2010.
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.
Arrrrgh! So close but yet still not quite there yet. I really want to like MobileNoter. It's an iOS App (iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad) that lets you sync files with OneNote.
LG's vice president of marketing Chang Ma, in an interview with the Wall St. Journal says that LG's tablet, scheduled to debut later this year, is going to focus on the ability to create content and not just consume it.
I met up with some folks from Dell to check out the Dell Streak, an Android device that's created quite a bit of buzz since we first got a peek at it back at CES 2010.I shot a quick video walkthrough and snapped some pics after playing with the device for a few minutes....
I really enjoyed last week's Evernote Trunk press conference. The company demonstrated how it and its partners would make the service even more useful and gave us a glimpse of the future of the note service.
No demos here: just a brief overview and my honest opinion of the Fujitsu Lifebook T900 Tablet PC, perhaps the most delightful Tablet PC I've ever used.
During my recent evaluation of the Fujitsu Lifebook T900 Tablet PC, I decided to record a little demonstration of the complementary pen and multi-touch input on its dual digitizer screen.
Very nice. Motion has released the J3500 Slate Tablet PC, a ruggedized entry into their lineup that in review testing seems to be not only a reliable performer but one that will give users an excellent touch and pen experience. I was fortunate enough to spend a few d...
T-Mobile recently began upgrading their mobile network to HSPA+, offering speeds up to 21Mbps. Of course, "up to" is such a relative term.
I'm spending the day at Infineon Raceway in Somona, a short drive from my hometown of San Francisco. I'm working on a number of videos and articles about how NASCAR teams use technology, which I'll share here and over at Notebooks.com in the coming days. Infineon Rac...
Motion Computing's F5V Slate Tablet PC makes me wish I had a larger bank account. This rugged Slate Tablet PC, with its distinctive handle, is a great mobile note taking tool and I could easily see myself using it in my theatre work.
It had to happen sooner rather than later. My lovely wife Thomasin got a chance to check out the iPad briefly when we were with my Mom at the hospital.
The iPad is certainly attracting all kinds of attention and one of the keys for its success is that Apple Stores exist so that folks can have a chance to go hands on with the device.
I know some folks think I'm crude when I post and remind them that there is such a thing as Stall Surfing. You know, surfing the web while sitting on the throne.
Obviously from the get go, the Apple iPad should in no way be confused with what many of us here on the pages of GBM think of as a Tablet PC.
The iPad has been called all sorts of things in its short one week life and to a certain degree I find that most of the descriptors are correct no matter which direction a particular commentator or reviewer is aiming from.
I decided to see what it's like to use a MobileDemand xTablet T7000 in the rain and if it could in fact handle getting some water on it.
OK, after a quick conversation with the UPS driver, I got down to the obligatory unboxing the iPad and here's the video for your perusal.
I visited Yazdani Studios in Los Angeles for a tour and to see how architects are using Tablet PCs. Yazdani Studios designs beautiful buildings around the world, including concert halls, court houses and offices.
This is nice surprise, at least for me. I've never considered myself to be in the market for a smaller netbook-sized Notebook, but I could see where this would be of value.
When it comes to Netbooks, I let my wife Thomasin give them a whirl to find out what she is thinking. You may or may not remember that she has used the original Asus EEE Netbook and continues to use an HP Mini 1100 in her daily chores, which include mostly email, some w...
After spending some time with the Lenovo X201t Tablet PC I can say it feels like coming home again for this Tableteer. I got to evaluate its precursor, the x200t, and enjoyed it immensely.
Intel's Kapil Wadhera was kind enough to get on camera and walk me through the second generation convertible Classmate PC. There are some significant improvements that will hopefully move more schools away from the clamshell Classmate PC and towards the convertible. ...
