GBM InkShow: Freescale Semiconductors

I talked to Glen Burchers Freescale Semiconductors to talk about eReaders, slate devices and smartbooks.

CES 2010: Getting Grabby With Microsoft Surface


In the south hall of the CES, Kodak hosted a massive booth to showcase their cameras and accessories. Wouldn’t normally be a big draw for me, but then I saw the ginormous surface computing system set up like a waterfall and river through the middle of their showcase. I want to go to there. And […]

CES 2010: FlipCase lets you type on the go


Walked past their booth and couldn’t resist hearing their pitch. Yes, it reminds me of a food vendor at a sporting event handing out ‘dogs and pretzels from trays strapped to their bodies, but I saw plenty of guys here trying to work while standing with laptops unfolded. Obviously, there’s a need for this product. […]

CES 2010: I Love School loves pen input


In just a couple hours on the show floor, I spotted great touch and pen input stuff, including this system from Korean company, ILS Communications, which stands for I Love School.

GBM InkShow: Touch on the Lenovo X200T Tablet PC

GBM Inkshow_ Touch on the Lenovo x200T Tablet PC (beta)

I’m really enjoying using the two finger touch on the Lenovo X200T Tablet PC. That’s saying something since I just don’t see touch as being necessary in my usage of a Tablet PC. Frankly, I pull out a Tablet PC when I need to Ink some notes in rehearsal or a meeting or when I […]

Screen shot 2009-09-17 at 12.47.52 AM

A few weeks ago I asked if you would use a clamshell style notebook with a touchscreen display. The responses were very favorable to the idea and I finally got a chance to try out just such a machine. Lenovo was kind enough to send over a pre-production ThinkPad T400s for us to play with […]

BestBuyCMO: CrunchPad Will Be a Hit! Oh Yeah!


The Twitter Tracker at Silicon Alley Insider is not as entertaining as the one from The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien (Twitter Tracker! Oh Yeah!), but it’s, what’s the word, useful. They grabbed this gem from BestBuyCMO (that’s the chief marketing officer of Best Buy, Barry Judge) who claims to have just met with the […]

GBM InkShow: Fujitsu ST6012 Tablet PC Video Review


We get a lot of gadgets and computers to review here at GottaBeMobile, but there is nothing like getting to play (er, I mean work) with a slate Tablet PC. Even though they don’t fit my particular work flow, I love the simplicity that a slate brings to the table. In this InkShow video review, […]
