Between packing up the HTC Flyer for return and unwrapping a Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 for review, I found myself with FIVE slates at my fingertips.
Sumocat plays Angry Birds on not one, but TWO, Windows 7 tablets, a TEGA v2 and Fujitsu Lifebook T900, thanks to Intel AppUp.
A review of the Opera Labs release of Opera Mobile 11 for Windows on the TEGA v2 slate. Offer iPad level ease of use on this Windows 7 multi-touch tablet.
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 Table...
We've been running several posts about products designed to let you use your capacitive touch screen devices out of doors in cold weather and given that the US (at least the central and eastern part of the US) is in the grips of a major cold wave, I'm guessing that some...
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.
Updated: Sorry, the fix is proving unreliable. As shown in the photo, it worked fine yesterday after the initial install, but it isn't connecting today, tested with multiple routers. (more...).
The floodgates have opened. Everybody and their brother is releasing some form of Tablet this month and next in hopes to capture some of your Christmas dollars.
Finally, after more than a decade of living near Washington DC, someone's holding a rally with a message I can get behind. Sure, I've attended rallies in the past, but that was primarily for the experience.
Everybody is used to iFixit's tear downs of new devices, but I'm guessing they aren't going to do one for the Tega v2 Slate. Not to worry.
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.
Last week our completely unplanned series on the iPad (here, here, and here) generated quite a few comments as do many of the posts we publish that talk about Tablets/Slates/whatever you want to call them.
Here's a shot of how I'm watching Apple's Back to the Mac event. I'm using the iMac to watch and listen to Leo LaPorte's running commentary on one screen, keeping up with the team and with Twitter on a second monitor.
Our good friend James Kendrick has a run down of two touch interface overlays for Windows 7 tablets, Thinix Touch and Mirabyte FrontFace, both shown off on his TEGA v2.
While Warner focuses on the OOBE and non-geek perspective on the TEGA v2, I'm going full geek with mine. In this shortcut, I demonstrate what I've done with Firefox to make it better suited for a small touchscreen device. (more...).
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...
Hugo Ortega, the man behind TegaTech has sent several gadget bloggers, including me, long term review units of his new TEGA v2 Tablet/Slate.
Here are some unboxing photos of the TEGA v2 Tablet/Slate and some iPad comparison shots. After all that's the competition. It just arrived via Fedex a few minutes ago.
Okay, "leaked" may not be the right word since it's on Tegatech's official TEGA v2 website, but the official launch is still two days away (after being bumped by the WinPho7 hubbub), so the order page is ahead of schedule.
Our friend Hugo Ortega is really excited about the upcoming launch of Tegatech's TEGA v2. I would be too if I was launching, say, the Sumotech SUMO v2.
For those of you interested in the TEGA v2, but concerned about getting one outside of Australia, home of Tegatech, the company has announced it will be available in North America, Europe, Australia & New Zealand on October 12th. (more...).
Well, this is interesting. Two days after I praise Hugo Ortega for including a dedicated Ctrl-Alt-Del button on his TEGA V2, a sign of his experience with Tablet PCs and UMPCs, every hater on the Internet is bashing the HP Slate for having a dedicated Ctrl-Alt-Del butto...
In a couple of tweets last week from a visit to the factory, friend, former GBMer, and founder of Tegatech Australia, Hugo Ortega (a.k.a.
