Let’s be honest here, BlackBerry 10 isn’t exactly a vibrant, thriving operating system. BlackBerry has less than one percent smartphone market share and simply can’t compete these days with the flashy iOS flagship smartphones coming out of the woodwork from Apple and Android flagships from the likes of Samsung, HTC, Xiaomi, Huawei, and Motorola (just to name a few). So it should come as no surprise that BlackBerry is looking for a backup plan of sorts to advances its efforts in the smartphone race, and what better partner could the Canadian company find than with Google? As we reported in June,... Read more...
Fresh off posting a surprise profit amid sagging sales and lost customers, it looks as though BlackBerry is prepping at least three new phones for public consumption, pictures of which have been leaked to the web. One of the phones is the BlackBerry Oslo, a device that's been leaked to the web before, though none of the three have been officially announced. Similar in style to the Passport, especially the version with rounded corners for AT&T's network, it's believed the Oslo will also feature similar hardware. Word on the web is that the Oslo will sport a square-shaped... Read more...

The Asus Eee Pad Slider is a break-out device, much in the way the Asus Eee Pad Transformer broke the mold not so long ago when it was announced.  Though it's built on the same base NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform that many 10.1 Android Honeycomb slates are these days, the Slider offers a netbook-like slide-out keyboard solution that takes the standard tablet experience to a whole new level. For not a lot more size and weight (or cost for that matter), you also get a full-sized USB port and HDMI output with Slider.  We stepped through the device in detail in our full review recently, but today...

It seemed, just a couple of years back, that almost every week was topped off by the introduction of a new netbook. Remember those things? We haven't seen much in the way of new netbook technology lately, but we have seen plenty of tablets. The iPad started a modern-day revitalization of the slate PC market, and while Apple has dominated the market, rival companies have been pushing out tablet after tablet in an effort to grab their piece of the pie. One thing we've noticed is the great variety in form factors. Whereas the iPad basically just comes in two flavors, those content with Android can... Read more...

Asus definitely made a splash at this year's CES with their onslaught of sexy tablet PCs.  We were expecting to see a healthy offering from Asus and weren't disappointed.  However, what was more impressive were the designs Asus stepped out with that broke the plain old slate mold.  Our favorite perhaps, at least until we can get a closer look when we review these units, was the Slider.  Here May from Asus demos this new cool 10-inch Android slate with a super thin slide out keyboard... Stay tuned in the weeks ahead for a our detailed evaluation.  For now, it's time to say... Read more...
At the annual Asus press conference held a couple of days before CES, Jonney Shih gave us a sneak peek of the company's tablet lineup. We’ve got pics, specs, and information regarding the upcoming Asus Eee Pad Slider, Eee Pad Transformer, Eee Pad MeMO, and the long awaited Eee Slate EP 121...

At the annual Asus press conference held a couple of days before CES, Jonney Shih gave us a sneak peek of the company's tablet lineup. If you haven't jumped on the tablet bandwagon yet, 2011 might just be the perfect time to do so. Let's take a look at what Asus has to offer.    Is it a tablet? Or a notebook? The Eee Pad Slider is a little of both and features a 10.1” IPS touch-screen, but also a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Powered by a dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 SoC, it also sports built-in digital cameras on the front (1.2MP) and rear (5MP) for video chat and digital photography.... Read more...
Nokia's been focusing pretty intently on the high-end, smartphone market with its most recent offerings. Between the Maemo 5-powered N900 and the X6, it's easy to tell that the company is striving to stay relevant in a market that's being increasingly dominated by HTC and Apple. But that said, Nokia still has quite a few customers on lower tiers, so it makes sense to see a new pair of mid-range handsets for those not quite ready to take the plunge on a smartphone (particularly in markets outside of the US). Both of these fashionable sliders sport 3G modules, and both of 'em are certainly made for... Read more...
