Samsung swipes at iPad, Surface and Kindle in their latest advert

Samsung swipes at iPad, Surface and Kindle in their latest advert

Samsung don’t exactly have a reputation for being subtle with their advertising and the latest advert for the Galaxy Pro Series of tablets holds true to their usual form. The advert is starts by showing off the multi-window capability of the Samsung NotePRO and TabPRO tablets and moves quickly onto dissing the Microsoft Surface pointing out that with a keyboard, battery pack and mouse it’s more a laptop than a tablet. They take a round swipe at the Kindle as good for nothing other than “books”, before finally calling out the ‘Retina’ angle of the iPad as compared to the[Read More...]

A mysterious new ASUS tablet has popped up at the FCC overnight, leading to speculation that it could be the new Transformer Pad, reports Engadget. The filing for the tablet, given the model name TF502T, seems to in line with previous Transformer tablets released by the company, though sadly the filing doesn’t go into great detail with the only confirmed parts stating the device will come with 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth and NFC at the very least.

Seagate shows off a 500GB Ultra Mobile hard drive for Android tablets

Seagate shows off a 500GB Ultra Mobile hard drive for Android tablets

Tablets are great for many things where you want a bigger screen than a mobile, but you might not want to cart a laptop around. Take, for example, international travel. In flight movies aren’t terribly good quality, so you might like to take your own with you to watch on a tablet. I do. However, if you’ve done this, you’ll probably have found the same thing I did: 32gb of on-board storage isn’t always enough, especially if you like to take some music and photos with you as well. Well, worry at night no more. Seagate, already known for their[Read More...]
