Why wait to play with someone else's Microsoft Surface multi-touch tabletop display, when you can build one yourself! Apparently a big hit at this last weekend's Maker Faire, was an open-source design for tinkerers to inexpensively build  their own multi-touch tabletop display with off-the-shelf components. The design comes from Eyebeam, a self-described, "art and technology center that provides a fertile context and state-of-the-art tools for digital research and experimentation." "...engineers at Eyebeam... have created a scaled-down open-source version of Surface, called Cubit. By sharing the Cubit's hardware schematics and software source code, the engineers are significantly... Read more...
Nokia announced they were shipping the new N810 Internet Tablet yesterday. It's not really a phone unless you've got some sort of VoIP arrangement, but it's a nice little UMPC. Or it's a PDA on steroids. Well, at any rate, you can slide out the keyboard and type, surf the internet on its touchscreen if you can find a WiFi hotspot or can finagle a Bluetooth phone, or maybe just use it for music playback for a week at a stretch.With up to 45 hours of music playback, storage for up to 7,500 songs* and built-in GPS, the Nokia N810 is perfect for the person on the go.  The Nokia N810 comes with free maps preloaded for users to browse detailed locations, search for street addresses, find various...

As with all rumors, take the following with a grain of salt: It appears that Apple is preparing to release a Tablet.  Normally we hear so many Apple rumors, especially about Tablets, PDAs and sub-notebooks, but this particular rumor allegedly comes directly from one of Apple's key manufacturing partners: ASUS.Assuming that the rumor is true, that does leave us with a big question:“...can Apple turn the Tablet PC into a success when previous attempts have failed? The short answer is 'yes'. Any company that can make a mobile phone with no buttons, no picture messaging, slow Web access and no video capture into the most desirable phone on the planet can easily make tablets popular.”We're certainly...

All kinds of goodies are showing up at this week's Consumer Electronics Show. Ars technica takes a look at Nokia's improvement on their 770 Internet tablet, the N800. The most impressive new features for the N800 were the video streaming and GPS capabilities. Using a wireless router, the N800 was able to play video streamed from a PC and act as a remote control to control video played on another device. GPS functionality comes courtesy of the Nokia Navigation Kit, which has been available in Europe for a few months now. Developed by Navicore, the GPS unit connects to the N800 via Bluetooth with the maps stored on an SD card. The interface... Read more...
With the growing support of geo-tagging, I can see many uses for this type of device. A friend of mine is a service technician for a communication company. He is routinely called out on "locates", which means he must drive to a site and mark the locations of buried cable. Imagine, if you would, being able to geo-tag these locations, such that the requesting party could simply query the location. Acquisition would be a one time task, and multiple service calls to the site could be eliminated. Others that may benefit from this are municipal services such as police and fire departments, delivery services, outdoor enthusiast, and disaster relieve efforts. Of course the tools to do this are already... 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...

It has taken quite sometime for ultra-portables to be fully accepted by the notebook community. This really has more to do with their price tags, than any specific design or aesthetic issue. Considering that ultra-portables are usually more expensive than traditional notebooks, it isn't hard to see why most people would choose the cheaper option. And because ultra-portables have traditionally been low power options, and battery life was lacking, they were usually relegated to the low end. Add that to the fact that any previous practical use of an ultra-portable still required a main system to compliment it, either a desktop machine or a more traditional notebook; an ultra-portable asked a lot...
