It's hard to deny that the netbook market is largely stagnant. Even new machines joining the fray are forced to abide by Microsoft's hardware limits if they use Windows XP, which means that you'll be hard pressed to find a netbook with anything more potent than an Atom N270/N280, a hard drive larger than 160GB and more than 1GB of RAM. Always Innovation, however, has remained true to its name by inventing a somewhat different netbook in the form of the so-called "Touch Book."This netbook is more of a tablet/netbook-in-one, an unusual machine that actually looks quite stunning. As for specifications, you'll find an 8.9" LCD (1024x600 resolution), Wi-Fi, 512MB of flash memory (which is split between... Read more...
Is the Tablet PC really ready to make a comeback? With Apple's rumored tablet inching closer to reality each and every day, we've got yet another entrant vying for attention. According to a new article in the Straits Times, a Singapore start-up company by the name of Fusion Garage has teamed up with TechCrunch's own Michael Arrington in order to produce the world's next tablet--or, at least the next one that anyone will bother to care about.The device will purportedly be called the CrunchPad, and according to the report, it boasts a 12" display and weighs 1.2kg. Full dimensions are 12.77" by 7.83" by 0.74", and the homegrown operating system promises to give users easy access to YouTube clips... Read more...
Where there's smoke, there's fire--right? Um, right--at least, we sure hope so! Just a week after we heard some pretty convincing rumors that Apple really was gearing up to give the whole Tablet PC thing a shot, along comes an even more believable report suggesting that a Barron's analyst has not only confirmed that Apple will be producing a tablet, but that he has actually played with it.Now, we'll be the first to admit that this whole thing sounds somewhat fishy. After all, when's the last time Apple let an outsider play with a brand new device before it was ready for introduction? Maybe an Apple engineer, sure--but an analyst? That said, Barron's has a solid track record of reporting just... Read more...
If you've found yourself computing more and more outside, you've probably also found yourself struggling to really see what's going on. Most notebook displays, particularly those of the glossy variety, are nearly impossible to see when in direct sunlight, and that's exactly why Duros is adding a daylight-readable panel to its refreshed 8404 rugged tablet. The device, which is also being revamped with an Intel Atom processor, now boasts an 8.4" sunlight-viewable SVGA touchscreen, a solid-aluminum chassis and non-rotating compact flash drive. More specifically, the LED sunlight-viewable display achieves brightness of 1,100 nit and a 120-degree viewing angle. Granted, the 8404 is primarily designed... Read more...

For the longest while, Asus' Eee PC line has remained unchanged. New models have arrived, but none have looked drastically different than any that came before it. Recently, the company has been making strides to change things up, with the Eee PC 1008HA Seashell and this new T91 being exceptionally different. The Eee PC T91 is a convertible tablet PC, but in miniature form. In fact, it features a screen that's just 8.9", but that screen is touch-friendly. Naturally, Asus bundles in an array of specially designed software here to take advantage of the touchscreen. The TouchSuite platform enables users to touch photos, create photo albums with your hands and leave yourself desktop memos. The machine... Read more...

Now that we've got the IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad X41 Tablet PC review under our belts, we are going to backtrack a bit to take a look at the HP/Compaq TC4200. Although the IBM ThinkPad X41 Tablet PC hit the HotHardware lab first, the HP/Compaq TC4200 was actually introduced before the X41. These two Tablet PCs are targeted at slightly different audiences, however. The HP/Compaq TC4200 is a quasi-ultraportable, rather than being a true "ultraportable," and as such, this is a mobile PC aimed at the professional user...
