The tablet market is growing fast. Apple is leading the way with its iPad, while a countless number of Android tablets of all shapes and sizes are being released, the Google Nexus 7 being one of the better options at present. Then there is the forthcoming Windows 8, which will see another round of tablets launched, led by Microsoft's own Surface. No manufacturer wants to be left behind, and Casio is now jumping on the proverbial bandwagon with a new range of tablets. The company recently unveiled four different models including what Casio is calling its Paper Writer tablets, which have a rather distinct selling point.  Read More

Nexus 7 tablet - Google's first foray into the tablet world

The Nexus 7 is an innocuous looking little device. The unassuming face of Google's first foray into the tablet world has no hardware buttons aside from the power button and volume rocker, and the lithe 7-inch form factor means it can be slipped away into your bag or even jacket pocket. With prices starting at US$199 for the 8 GB model, the device has basically sold out on its first run in the U.S. So is this early success just a question of cost, or is it a genuinely good Android tablet? We take the Nexus 7 for a spin to find out.  Read More

Muti-touch can be used to do things like manipulate a 3D model or pan, zoom and rotate an ...

Muti-touch functionality was added to Wacom's Intuos5 graphics tablets earlier this year and, after winning much praise from users, it's no surprise to see it arrive on the company's Cintiq range of interactive pen displays. The Cintiq range was first introduced in 2005 and the addition of the Cintiq 24HD touch now allows users to use their fingers to pan, zoom and rotate the canvas at the same time as using the pressure and tilt sensitive pen.  Read More

tablift's four adjustable, bendy legs and three-position mount offer versatility and stabi...

A few years back Joby gave boring old camera tripods a much-needed kick up the rear when stiff, straight, dull-but-dependable legs were replaced with bendable knobbly goodness in the shape of the Gorillapod. Versatility and adaptability are central to its success, attributes that make the tablift iPad stand from Santa Monica's C. Scott Blevins a similarly attractive proposition. While there are vast numbers of tablet stands already available, tablift can provide the hands-free stability others may fail to offer when used on uneven or somewhat changeable surfaces like a sofa, comfy chair or bed.  Read More

Mock-up: how an iPad Mini might stack up

The trickling of rumors suggesting an iPad Mini is in the works has grown to become a raging torrent, with mainstream sources now seriously reporting on Apple's plans for a smaller iPad. Previously, websites such as Digitimes have been the source of such rumors, but with The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg now on board there seems less and less room for doubt such a device is on its way.  Read More

Microsoft's Surface Pro tablet powered by Windows 8 marks a shift in the computing industr...

Windows 8 represents a big change for Microsoft’s industry leading OS. It breaks from tradition by doing away with the long serving Start button and replacing it with a tile-based and touch-friendly Metro UI. While this move has widely polarized opinion, especially in the enterprise sector, it does represent a major trend across the industry, with mobile-tablet operating systems becoming more and more closely related to their laptop and desktop counterparts. This trend is personified by Microsoft’s in-house tablet, the Surface Pro.  Read More
