While AT&T in the States has yet to launch LTE 4G–the carrier is first rolling out 4G in the form of HSPA+ devices–Samsung is claiming to have the world’s first 3G HSPA and 4G LTE dual-mode netbook in the form of the SAmsung NF310. We say the 10.1-inch HD LED netbook on display at the […]
As impressive as some of the devices shown at CES were, it was clear to me, if Apple does announce a tablet as expected, they won’t have to worry about competition for a while. It wasn’t just that Dell and HP were showing nameless, possibly vaporous prototypes (Dell wouldn’t even commit to theirs ever being […]
After running through what worked and what didn’t, the next thing I pondered was what I would change and what I’d do to improve it next time (assuming Xavier re-extends the invite and I forget how beat down tired I felt).
The QUE is a stunning eReader. If I had the resources, I’d pick one up today. But if you’re on a budget like me, it is so not for you. Price point for the 3G version is $799. Absolutely crazy for a personal eReader, but it’s not built for personal use; it’s built for high-powered […]
I’d seen it on the first day. Handled half-functioning units at other booths. But not until my last day (and first full day on the floor) did I get a full demo of the enTourage eDGe, the eReader I’d been eyeing since learning there was a Wacom Penabled digitizer beneath that e-ink screen. Really hoped […]
Had some fun twisting and resizing icons on Samsung’s multitouch monitor. Not quite as much fun as flinging icons on a Microsoft Surface, but it was a good experience. I had some trouble tapping without pushing, but I found it very responsive and easy to tap what I was aiming for. As an interface for […]
At the Samsung domain at CES, I got a chance to give Swype a quick runthrough on the Omnia II. While the Samsung rep doing the demo was quite adept (though obviously running through a list of words he’d practiced), my one thumb style was Swyping out nothing but gibberish.
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. It uses a standard ThinkPad AC adapter, has the no-noncense black ThinkPad ID, TrackPoint and a full-size keyboard. At $449, the […]
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. Had to narrow down the choices to a select few.
Lenovo’s made a big splash at CES 2010 with the introduction of its new IdeaPads and ThinkPads. Today we’re going to kick off a giveaway for a Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3, the company’s newest netbook. Lenovo and a lot of other companies are taking blogging, Twitter and other forms of social media very seriously these days. […]
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. Will definitely need to keep touch turned off for most of my usage.
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. I spill ink on the enTourage eDGe Wacom Penabled e-ink screen with its included stylus, as well as mine, and determine if it is pressure-sensitive. […]
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. We marvel at the games and goodies at the Speck booth, and yes, there […]
Amy thinks she needs one. I barely need a wired charging station. Hear what she has to say and let us know which category you fall into.
So I guess I owe Rob an apology for making fun of his crushing paper boats in his Microsoft Touch Pack demo. Amy and I gave it a go on the Viliv S10 Blade, and I sucked. In my defense, I wasn’t getting a lot of touch love on my side of the screen, and […]
