This one is flying low, under most radars, but its a consideration for the budget conscious UK christmas shopper. StorIT Group own CMS Peripherals, who have spun out Disgo. It is this hereditary relationship which has given rise to the Disgo 6000, a 7-inch 800 x 480 Android 2.1 tablet available for only ÂŁ180.00 ($290.00). So, where is the catch? Unfortunately, while the device sports a 1GHz iMAPx200 processor and HDMI connectivity, there are quite a few. For example, this tablet does not offer the Android Market, nor does it have a multi-touch screen. It wont auto sense when you…

The tablet was not exactly the most vivacious of devices when announced earlier in the year. However, this newer version has shed a few buttons and will make use of cloud computing to get its jobs done. If I’m precise, NEC’s LifeTouch makes use of the phrase “cloud communicator”. It has not been made clear exactly what benefits this affords the device, other than an intriguing marketing avenue. Apparenlty the “cloud communicator” is especially well suited for corporate customers. In which case they should make it black. Anyway, we can still expect a 7-inch Retina Touch Panel upon which a…

OLED-Display have snapped the first shots of the super OLED 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab. Its tasty. Apparently it offers 169 ppi with 16.7 M colors,250 cd/m² free viewing angels and >100% NTSC color space. There is a video after the jump where you can jump to 55-seconds to see the Galaxy Tab in action. It should be noted that the actual unit in the video could just be a regular AMOLED display, but there is strong evidence to suggest a Super AMOLED is coming anyway. One thing is for sure though, it will run Android. Other treats include a folding…

I have never heard of PocketBook USA, and cursory internet search combined with a wiki trawl does not really reveal much. Regardless, the company/organization is set to release two new Android based tablets for fairly attractive price points. We have the PocketBook IQ 701 tablet and the 602 eReader. The PocketBook IQ 701 tablet offers Android 2.0 and provides a 7-inch TFT screen with a 533MHz CPU. The 602 eReader provides a 6-inch E-ink display with 16 shades of gray. Both offer Wi-Fi and are fairly good value for money so long as the price points hold. Indeed, the IQ…

Unfortunately this news item is a little cryptic. LG are rumored to release a high-end tablet device offering superior performance, but remaining lighter and thinner providing many “firsts” when compared to its competitors. However, this all but seemed official until LG refused to comment on the news and also removed twitter posts. The device itself is set to offer Honeycomb, the “tablet PC-version” of the Android OS. Furthermore, it will offer a 8.9-inch display and will be called the LG Pad. We’re excited to hear that this will land in the first quarter of 2011, even though this probably means…

This device from Archos really looks smooth. As a French consumer electronics company, Archos have no excuse for a lack of style. Fortunately, the 43 internet  tablet is a testament to good design. This device runs Android and offers a whole host of features including tethering to your 3G enabled phone for high-speed internet, and HD video recording. Here is a break down of the most interesting and exciting features to be found on this Android device. Internet: Surf the web in full width just like on your PC, and stay in contact by using the integrated email and contacts…

The Samsung Galaxy Tab has turned up on Amazon.com, available for pre-order now and coming November 9th. If you want to get this without a contact to a network then it will set you back $699.99 with free shipping and should arrive on November 10th. This is in-line with the official release date of the device on T-Mobile, where it will set you back $400 on contract. If you’re living in the UK, then you may already be in line at Carphone Warehouse picking your Galaxy Tab up right now. Of course, many stores opened early today to match an…

Increasingly credible DigitTimes is reporting that MSI are dropping Windows 7 for their Windpad in favor of the mighty green robot. Indeed, Micro-Star International, the Taiwan based computer and components manufacturer, are delaying the WindPad U100 until Q3 of 2011 in favor of Android 3.0 aka Gingerbread. In truth, we might actually see Android 3.5 Honeycomb by Q3 2011, but we’ll see. The good news for the consumer is that this item will now offer an attractive sub $500 price point and will still provide some of the goodies we enjoy such as HDMI connectivity. The tablet will be still…

I have to be honest and say that I do not buy what View Quest are selling, figuratively and literally. According to the company, who are set to release 5″ and 8″ Android 1.5 tablets in time for Christmas, the reason why they opted in for this older version of Android is because it is the “most stable.” Sure, I cannot think of another decent reason why View Quest would use Android 1.5, but still, other builds of Android are stable enough. Perhaps they are sticking to 1.5 because they stumbled across some open source drivers that work with their…

So if you live in China you might find the title of this post a little misleading because the plan’s afoot for a Chinese release sometime soon. However, Big-L have apparently stated that they will not release an Android tablet in the US until Android 3.x aka Honeycomb. According to Techradar, Honeycomb is not due until Q1 2011. What is a little surprising about this news is that Gingerbread is touted as the main ‘tablet-friendly’ Android release, and as such one would think that Lenovo would be keen to get in on the action. After all, the Samsung Tab and…
