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. Thanks to Windows 7, (yes Windows 7) the experience on the Tega v2 isn’t as bad as I thought […]

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.

GBM InkShow: HP Mini 1000 Netbook

HP Mini 1000 Netbook
