We no little else about it, apart from the fact that it will launch in South…

Tech lifestyle blog shufflegazine have taken few snap shots at a recent press event held by Acer over in Beijing. As far as we are concerned, the highlight of the event has to be the unveiling of the company’s 7-inch Android tablet. This is especially sweet given that not so long ago Acer denied ever wanting to get involved in the tablet market, let along with Android at the helm. Lanci, the Acer CEO, failed to let-loose any juicy specifications for us to get our claws into, however, he did hint at a fourth quarter launch. We’ll believe it when…

Pioneer Computers Australia have officially released the technical specifications of their new Dreambook ePad 7. This 7-inch tablet offers a 800 x 480 touchscreen display and is powered by a 533MHz processor. We’d have loved to see a 1Ghz processor in here. There is 256MB RAM coupled with a 2GB SSD for internal storage. Of course, you can upgrade via MicroSD to 32GB. To keep costs down, the GPS and Bluetooth are optional, as is the 3G connectivity. WiFi comes as standard, however. Other hardware specifications include a 1.3-megapixel camera, 2.0 USB port and a 2400mAh battery. All of this…

This screen also produces a wider aspect ratio when compared to the likes of the iPad. I should…

Down at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco, some guys from Zedomax.com came across the Adobe booth and upon inspection, stumbled across an Adobe example prototype Android tablet running Flash and AIR ‘flawlessly’. This prototype tablet seems to have been running Android 2.1 to boot. It runs Adobe’s Flash and Air apps flawlessly. That was the first time I saw Adobe’s Air apps running on a tablet and totally impressed by how it ran. And now I can understand why Apple wants to ban Flash and other Adobe products completely from their iPhones and iPads, because it’s rather incredible…

According to the personal blog of Loy Okezie, a small company called Encipher has just unveiled its prototype of an Android powered tablet. Encipher is an expanding technology consultancy start-up based in the UK and founded by Nigerian technology entrepreneurs, Saheed Adepoju and Anibe Agamah. This type of ventures strongly reminds me of the Geeksphone company who release an Android based device called the ONE. In this case, Encipher are looking to tap into the emerging market of Nigeria, which make sense given that the founders are from there. According to the fount of all knowledge, Nigeria is ranked 37th…
