Ready for a bold prediction? This is the year that tablet PC shipments outnumber notebook shipments, a trend that will continue indefinitely. That's according to the NPD DisplaySearch Quarterly Mobile PC Shipment and Forecast Report, which states that the mobile PC market is expected to increase from 367.7 million... Read more...
Generally speaking, tablet sales are booming and showing no signs of slowing down. Not tomorrow, not next week, and maybe not even in five years from now, no matter what the crystal ball says that BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins is peering into. According to the latest figures provided by International Data Corporation... Read more...
Well, here's an idea I hadn't considered before. Because most tablets don't offer the ability to plug in an external display, sharing what's on your screen with others usually involves passing the tablet around. Obviously, this isn't too ideal for something like an office meeting, where slides are being shown. But... Read more...
We hear the phrase "the future is mobile" a lot, but just what does that mean? Most of us are equipped with smartphones, and some of us tablets... just how much more mobile can we get? With devices that we don't own, but still use, of course. Case in point: an installation eBay is planning to kick-off with a major... Read more...
In recent years, BlackBerry has had a rough time recovering the major success it once experienced in the mobile market, but it hasn't been afraid to try new things and see what sticks. Take the PlayBook, for example, the company's first tablet, released at a time when the market seemed to be exploding with them... Read more...
Big is always better, but small is in. So, what's a company to do? Both! Microsoft has the big-screen tablet market covered, with a litany of Windows RT and Windows 8 slates (not to mention the Surface range). But if Apple and Google have proven one thing, it's that people appreciate choice, and in particular, the... Read more...
The latest PC sales numbers and accompanying predictions from research firm Gartner show an unsurprising trend: tablet sales will continue to rise sharply at the expense of traditional desktops and notebooks. “While there will be some individuals who retain both a personal PC and a tablet...most will be...

Google’s Nexus 10 tablet didn’t get the big New York event and debut the company wanted because of Hurricane Sandy’s timing, but Google has launched a TV ad campaign to market the 10-inch tablet and show off its user-friendliest features. The lighthearted video ad features a young couple that is... Read more...
When Microsoft decided to launch its own hardware with the Surface tablet, it was a big gamble, and many noted that even after its unbridled success in the operating system, software, and gaming hardware markets, the company may find the tablet hardware side of things to be tougher sledding. According to Bloomberg... Read more...
As the PC and mobile markets continue to evolve and cross-pollinate, plenty of companies are massaging form factors to better suit users’ varied needs. ASUS has been working on that as much as anyone, and its latest design is an all-in-one PC called the Transformer AiO that doubles as both a decently-appointed... Read more...
Maybe in another 10-15 years we'll press our finger to our tablet or smartphone to have our temperatures taken and to record other vitals, which will then be uploaded to a doctor who will email us his or her prognosis. It sounds terribly impersonal, but then again, what's so great about sitting in a waiting room for an hour, just to be called... Read more...
We can’t say that we’re terribly surprised by this, but according to DisplaySearch, smaller screen sizes on tablets are becoming more popular at the expense of larger panels. In the last two months, 7-7.9-inch displays have gained ground in terms of shipments while those in the 9.7-inch range dropped off... Read more...
About five seconds after we were first debating the merits of the 7-inch tablet form factor (for the record, I’m fully in favor), the market is suddenly flush with mobile devices at almost any screen size, from little 3-inch phones up to monster 10.1-inch tablets. Somewhere in there, phablets--so named because they’re too big to... Read more...
Earlier today we mentioned ASUS’ new PadFone Infinity, which is a nicely-appointed smartphone that slots into a dock to become a 10.1-inch tablet; ASUS isn’t done at Mobile World Congress, though, as the company also announced a 7-inch tablet called the Fonepad (Yes, the nomenclature is kind of confusing.)...

When Canonical debuted its "Ubuntu Tablet OS" last week, company CEO Mark Shuttleworth helped show off its many features in a six-minute video. And what we saw at CES2013 first hand was impressive - an OS that tries to do things a bit different, and uses all four edges to make navigating the OS' different functions an... Read more...
The folks at Pwnie Express make some of the coolest penetration-testing products on the planet. Its most-popular offering has been the "Pwn Plug", an inconspicuous mini-PC that plugs into a wall socket and looks little different than a large power adapter. Then there's the "Power Pwn", a product sharing a similar idea, but offers additional... Read more...
Hewlett-Packard's resume in the tablet space is hardly anything to brag about. Chalk it up to bad timing, poor management, or whatever you like, but the short-lived HP TouchPad and subsequent loss of interest in webOS, the primary piece in HP's $1.2 billion acquisition of Palm, is a textbook example of how not to...

Today is the official release date of the Surface Pro, and as such, Microsoft has updated its flagship tablet's product page (or Ultrabook in tablet trim, if you prefer to think of it that way). There are two models to choose from, a 64GB SKU starting at $899 and a 128GB version (currently sold out) starting at $999. There are a bunch of accessories... Read more...
No self respecting power user is giving up his or her desktop for a tablet, plain and simple. At the same time, can you say the same thing about your less savvy friends and family members? My neighbor doesn't own a desktop or a notebook, but he does have an iPad, and there are others just like him, people who just need a device to surf the... Read more...
Life is good for ARM, the British chip designer that's riding the mobile wave just as fast and furious as it can. In its most recent financial report, ARM posted a pre-tax profit of 80 million pounds (~$126.2 million) on revenue of 164.2 million pounds ($~262.8 million), representing positive growth of 16 percent and 19 percent, respectively....

This year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is now ancient history in the fast moving world of tech, and the next big event is Mobile World Congress (MWC), which kicks off later this month. There will be lots of mobile devices on display, including a MeMo Pad 10 tablet from Asus, which has broken cover ahead of the... Read more...
Despite the fact that the company offers truly competitive products, NVIDIA has had a rough time penetrating the mobile market like it wants to - or perhaps needs to. Finding a Tegra-based smartphone requires a fair bit of patience, if you can find one at all for your particular market or carrier. Things are a lot... Read more...
