Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 is out tomorrow
Feb 28, 2011
Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 It’s a pity that using Windows 7 on a tablet has a number of critical issues. Tablets in my view, as a new but already strong branch of computer form-factors, have more potential than smartphone-derived OSes allow them to embody. When it comes to a more common desktop-like computing experience, a tablet needs a Windows version which is now here yet, the 7 is quite hard to use cramped in 10-inch multitouch display. But Fujitsu releases one tomorrow anyway. It is, of course, the Stylistic Q550.
On hardware side Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 is a very capable tablet. It is based on Intel Oak Trail platform, together with flash memory this duet should run Windows 7 blazingly fast. Other notable features pertain to tablet’s “business” orientation and mainly include data protection options like hardware encryption and antitheft protection.
Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 will reportedly go no sale in Europe tomorrow for price equivalent of $ 960.

Feb 17, 2011
Apple creates a shortage of touch panels to intervene its competitors?

ViewSonic ViewPad 4 will be one of the first to run Android 2.4
Feb 07, 2011
ViewSonic ViewPad 4
We have already seen a Nexus S i9023 running Android 2.4. At the time we though that the OS build will be dubbed “Ice Cream”. Now we heard that it might not. Anyway, we have also seen an Android-based ViewSonic ViewPad 4 smartphone back at CES in January. So now it turns up that the ViewPad will be one of the first not only smartpohnes but devices in general to come out with Android 2.4 Ice Cream onboard. We will find out in early April whether the name is or isn’t correct. There is, of course, a lot of hype going around the even later 3.0 Honycomb version and it is certain that 2.4 is a minor release, but it appears so that 2.4 will be able to run 3.0 apps in their full functionality. Other Android 2.4 devices will also come in April and not any earlier.

MSI projector business tablet concept
Jan 20, 2011
MSI projector tablet HP’s arrival on tablet market was and is well covered and highly anticipated. As I previously noted, computer companies must excel at designing tablets. Despite this there are no living examples of a truly successful tablet made by a PC company. Yes, Windows 7 is good as a desktop and notebook operating system, but porting it to a touchscreen tablet is a challenge. Which is probably why HP uses their proprietary webOS and Dell has gone for the Android. MSI, however, decided to stick with Microsoft and Intel for their tablet concept.

HTC Flyer tablet with Android 2.3 shipps in March, more tablets on the way
Jan 20, 2011
HTC Flogo It is hard for me to believe at the moment that HTC Flyer tablet will take off in March, but this is exactly what source says. The Flyer will have Android 2.3 onboard and at the time when 3.0 Honeycomb is ready it will upgrade straight to it (no love for 2.4 Ice Cream?). The early appearance is planned to take on the Playbook and Xoom but it also might mean that HTC were a bit careless designing the Flyer. Source notes that the tablet is based on HTC Desire smartphone. I will not insist, but I think designing a tablet requires different approach rather then making an existing phone bigger. Anyway, two more Android Honeycomb tablets form HTC are planned for June.
