Tablets, tablets, and a few more tablets. There's no question that 2011 will be the launch year for tons of tablets, particularly with an all-new version of Android (Honeycomb) about to hit the market. Stream TV Networks has a 10" tablet that they hope will compete with the iPad and provide an Android-based alternative for those who feel the Galaxy Tab is simple too small. The eLocity A10, which relies on NVIDIA's Tegra 2, will soon be available to order, and the specifications are definitely impressive. The A10 will ship with 4GB, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage space, with pricing set for $399,... Read more...
Another tablet PC? You bet! It'll be a tough time for these lesser-name companies to compete with Apple's iPad and Samsung's Galaxy Tab, but if there's any way they can, it'll be on price. The eLocity A7 probably isn't on your radar, but it may be after we tell you that it's on sale now for just $369.99, which is far less than most others on the market currently. The A7 is a 7" tablet that runs Android 2.2 and is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset. The company claims that this slate is tailor made for gaming, and it also has a microSD card slot, an HDMI output and support for 1080p video playback.... Read more...

Unlike the enthusiast system manufacturers, Alienware and VoodooPC, Richmond, Virginia-based Velocity Micro is still an independent, privately held company. In fact, Velocity Micro is doing well enough on its own to have even purchased the enthusiast, boutique system maker, Overdrive PC last year. On top of that, Velocity Micro is one of the few (if only) independently owned, U.S.-based, high-end gaming systems manufacturers that--in addition to selling direct--also sells its systems at Best Buy and Circuit City. That's a claim that even Velocity Micro's competitors, Oregon-based Falcon Northwest,... Read more...

Velocity Micro Gamer's Edge 1500 Evaluation @ HardOCP: "We chose the Gamer's Edge 1500 because yours truly is addicted to Battlefield 2 and can barely stand having only 1GB of memory (and 512MB is unthinkable). Therefore, we ordered the 1500 instead, and we did not change one part. I think that if Velocity Micro is going to put their best foot forward in their initial configuration, and bill it as the best value gaming configuration available for $1500, then we should test it exactly as it is configured." Biostar I945P-A7 Motherboard Review @ Bjorn3D: "The I945P-A7 is currently Biostar's... Read more...
