Tablet Computers: History and Overview discusses the rise of the tablet and explains its popularity. This post was written by a Guest Blogger.
As much as I love my Macbook Pro, a tablet is more conducive to the digital lifestyle while on the move. I recently got the opportunity to review Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, and of course I jumped at the chance because I wanted to compare it to other the other tablets I already have and have reviewed.
The Galaxy Note II utilizes the Android OS, which right now, is beating it’s closest competition, the iOS. Samsung has been able to remain ahead of Apple because they aren’t afraid to try to innovate already impressive phones. Instead of resting on their laurels much like Apple has done, Samsung has upped the ante with every device they release.
There was a time that I swore that I would never be one of those obnoxious Apple users with their crisp gadgets. iPhone users walked around like they ruled the world. So I swore to say no. And then it happened. I became one of them. Not once, not twice, but three times.
While Apple’s iPhone has remained consistent with a 3.5-inch screen, Android manufacturers keep pushing the boundaries with larger and wider phone screens. Android juggernaut Samsung just released their Galaxy Note via AT&T, which is a hybrid phone/tablet with a 5.3-inch screen, the first Android phone with a screen that large.
Sony once again proves that they are upping the ante when it comes to premium digital experiences with the use of technology for everyday gadget users.
Last month, I wrote an un-boxing post teasing you about the new Kindle Fire I purchased as a gift for that special someone in my life. I promised that I would be back to write a more complete review of the tablet and let you know my thoughts on how it compares to the other tablets that are on the market.
Recently, Motorola started rolling out an update to the Xoom, which updates it from the Honeycomb tablet operating system to the more recent Ice Cream Sandwich OS. The Xoom was the first tablet in the US to be released with Honeycomb, and is the first that is receiving the update to Ice Cream Sandwich, though other tablets have been released with it pre-loaded.
I think we can all agree that having a tablet makes it convenient to be able to to surf the web and conduct business online while on the go. I don’t know what I would do without my tablets, and I love the flexibility it gives me.
Yes, here is yet another post about my fabulous time at last week’s 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas. But this time, I am bringing you a video that shows some of a amazing tech swag that I received at a few special key events while I was there.
The Amazon Kindle Fire tablet is a 7 inch tablet with color graphics. It’s a lot smaller than my Xoom (the Xoom is 10.5 inch), and very lightweight.
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve had my Xoom and it has really become a staple in my life—how did I live without this previously?
