Last week, between packing up the HTC Flyer for return and unwrapping a Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 for review, I found myself in tablet heaven with five – FIVE – slates at my fingertips. How could I not share the marvelous sight with you?
You know what’s better than playing Angry Birds on a Windows 7 tablet? Playing Angry Birds on TWO Windows 7 tablets at the same time. Well, not really. It’s actually pretty hard to get past a level that way. But as they say, if you got it, flaunt it, which I do in this YouTube video.
For a video demo of Opera Mobile 11 for Windows in action, check out my GBM shortcut. For my impressions of how well it works on a slate like the TEGA v2, read on. Opera Mobile 11 may be the best cross-platform tablet web browser around.
Don’t let the headline deceive you. This isn’t about hacking the Google Chrome OS onto a Tablet. Instead it is running the Google Chrome browser, and more specifically the Google Web App Store, which in essence offers you most of what the Chrome OS will offer on a Tablet. In this case I’m using the Tega v2 running Windows 7 as the Tablet.
I’ve seen some pretty interesting commentary and critiques of the Google Chrome OS since it has been released. Xavier has done a good job of filling us in on his thoughts about what he’s experiencing with both the OS itself and the prototype hardware Google is now sending out for testing.

One such solution is GloveTips. Keep in mind this is a Do It Yourself (DIY) solution and it requires a bit more dexterity than I happen to have to get them to work well. At least I hope that’s the case. Essentially, GloveTips provide you with tips that react with your capacitive screen. You have to [...]
I posted about AGloves a week or so ago. Although I don’t think they are actually for me, AGloves actually do work quite well with capacitive touch screens. I got sent a pair for review and so last night my lovely wife, Thomasin and I gave them a try. You can check that out in the Shortcut video.
AGloves are constructed with a silver thread running through them that allows for the necessary conductivity to make all your favorite multi-touch gesturing work. I tried this out on the iPad, the iPhone 4, and the TEGA v2. I really sense no fundamental difference in the responsiveness of the screens with the gloves on. Beyond the fact that you are wearing gloves. I don’t [...]
