Hisense Sero 7 Pro – first impressions

Hisense’s first foray into the tablet market, the Sero 7 Pro, is very similar to last year’s Nexus 7 in looks and specifications – a 7-inch tablet running NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 system-on-a-chip inside its minimalistic black glass front and soft-touch plastic rear. I received a review unit directly from Hisense yesterday, and after spending yesterday with the tablet, I have[Read More…]

Nexus 7 (2013) – First Impressions

When Google announced the new Nexus 7 on July 24, I knew I was going to buy one. Heck, I buy every Nexus – even the ill fated Nexus Q. I feel this allows me to compare the original and the new version properly. Google has unfortunately staggered the rollout of the 2013 Nexus 7. We still don’t know exactly[Read More…]

Jacobs Portal 9.7″ Tablet — Review

A sub $200 10 inch Android tablet usually spells danger, but does the Jacobs Portal 9.7” device deserve the stigma? As I stated in my recent review of the Leader Tab, there’s two distinctly different segments when it comes to 10-inch tablets. There’s the performance devices, which includes the Nexus 10 and the Sony Xperia Tablet Z; and the “budget[Read More…]

Sony Xperia Tablet Z (16GB Wifi) — Review

Sony have a great name, but is the Xperia Tablet Z a great product? There’s some serious competition when it comes to 10 inch tablets currently, both in the budget conscious as well as the performance devices. Sony by way of their price tag have suggested that the Xperia Tablet Z is firmly entrenched in the latter. When looking at[Read More…]

Leader Tab 10″ — Review

Leader offers a breath of fresh air into a rough and stale market with their 10-inch Jellybean Tablet. When you’ve tested, reviewed and owned top end tablet devices, it can sometimes be tempting to dismiss tablets that aren’t in this same category.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Wi-fi) — Review

Can the Galaxy Note 8 stand up to Samsung’s high standards? In the last few years, Samsung has created an amazing success story with their Galaxy S phones, and more recently the Galaxy Note range – the first Galaxy Note phone was popular, and the Galaxy Note II was nothing short of a genuine success. After some early missteps with[Read More…]

Nexus 10 — Review

The Nexus program ventures into 10″ Territory Traditionally the 10″ Android tablet market has been a pretty disappointing affair. The big name tablets like the Galaxy Tab and the Asus Transformer series have both sold in numbers which have obviously been enough to warrant sequels and further investment by their respective companies. But so far however, they have failed to[Read More…]

Panasonic FZ-A1 Toughpad — Review

Panasonic’s first Android tablet! It’s rugged but is it worth it? Some of you may have heard about Panasonic’s Toughbook Laptops, a range of practically bullet-proof machines.
