Tablets and smartphones may now be cemented as a solid platform for games, but there's still a big difference between the mostly casual games available in the Apple and Android markets and the titles aimed squarely at the hardcore gaming crowd. A large part of the issue is the hardware, since even the iPad 2 can barely hold a candle to the processing power of the Xbox 360 or PS3; and that's without even bringing up the capabilities of a modern gaming rig. The video game service, OnLive, however has found a way to bridge the two with its new app that delivers console and PC titles to portable devices and, more importantly, makes them playable.  Read More

Acer has unveiled a new addition to its Iconia tablet series in the oddly familiar shape of the Iconia Tab A200. The budget-friendly A200 shares much of its hardware profile with the company's Iconia Tab A500 launched earlier in the year, although the former lacks a rear-facing camera and will come in 8GB and 16GB varieties only. When it first hits the shelves, the new tablet will run on Android 3.2 but Acer says that as soon as Google's next flavor of Android (codenamed Ice Cream Sandwich) is released in January 2012, the new tablet will be switched to the new operating system - with a free upgrade to Android 4.0 for existing A200 owners.  Read More

NVIDIA has been promising to put some impressive processing power in the palm of our hands with its Tegra 3 processor – previously known as Kal-El – for a while now. Teasing us with demos of dynamic lighting enabled by the chip’s quad-cores and impressive energy efficiency statistics made possible by a fifth “companion core.” While ASUS led us to believe that it would be launching the first tablet to be powered by the Tegra 3 – the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime - on November 9, it appears we’ll have to wait just a little bit longer. ASUS has, however, provided the remaining details on the tablet to tide us over until the tablet’s worldwide launch in December.  Read More

MobileMount is a suction cup-based universal mounting system for smartphones, tablets, or ...

There are definitely some situations where it helps to be able to mount your smartphone, tablet or other mobile device on a flat surface, such as a dashboard, kitchen counter, or wall. If you use multiple devices, this entails buying several mounts – one designed for each device. Chicago inventor J.R. Sanchez, however, has created “one mount to rule them all,” so to speak. It’s called MobileMount, and it works with any device it can suck onto.  Read More

The Kogan Agora 8-inch Tablet

I've just spent a day with a pre-production unit of Kogan’s new 8-inch Agora tablet and while it's fair to say there's an element of "you get what you pay for" at work here, that’s not to say the Agora is bad - it's an indication of just what kind of technology can be had for a fairly minimal outlay these days. If you're in the market for a budget priced tablet to keep the kids entertained on a long car trip or something to check the occasional email and spot of Web browsing then it will do the trick nicely, but don't expect the same kind of user experience you’d get when investing more money on a better specced unit.  Read More
