Sometimes a manufacturer is able to release a piece of budget-priced hardware that, despite decisions made to keep costs down, still ends up being a quite capable (and consequently successful) device; when it comes to tablets, we need look no further than Amazon's Kindle Fire. For every model like that, though, there are plenty of others that hit their low price points by making so many compromises that the product ultimately ends up becoming quite unattractive. Today, Idolian Mobile announced its IdolPad Plus, a seven-inch Android 4.0 tablet for a mere $98. Is this going to be another ...

Together with all the Mac and iOS news from yesterday's WWDC 2012 Apple event (day one), the company has also (silently) released an iPad Smart Case which should offer added protection for the Apple tablet. Smart covers only protect the screen of the device but the new Smart Case also offers protection for the aluminum back of the tablet. It goes for $49.00 and it's available in six colors; the material is polyurethane and is compatible with the iPad 2 as well as with the New iPad. Functionality-wise it will do the same thing as the Smart Cover, which means it will wake the device up and ...

While HTC dipped its proverbial toe in the Android tablet swimming pool, releasing the Flyer and Jetstream, it's far from the most prolific tablet manufacturer around. Now a new rumor suggests that this inexperience the company has with tablets ended up hurting its chances at getting in on the ground floor of Windows 8 tablets, with Microsoft withholding the early access to software it would need in order to prepare a launch device. Supposedly, a combination of HTC's tablet inexperience and some disappointing sales figures in general are what prompted Microsoft not to extend an early look ...

Last week, ASUS released a teaser video that strongly hinted that the company would have some sort of dual-booting Android/Windows 8 tablet to demonstrated at Computex this week. Right on schedule, the manufacturer has put its Transformer AiO up on display, giving us our first look at the versatile tablet. First off, the AiO is a whole lot larger that we were expecting, and appears to operate in a slightly different manner than we might have thought. When docked in its stand, the AiO acts as a normal Windows 8 PC, but lift it out and the screen becomes an 18.4-inch Android tablet. From the ...

ASUS has been coming out with some pretty interesting devices over the course of the past several months, from the first quad-core tablet with its Transformer Prime, to the unusual design of its new Padfone. We're hoping that trend is set to continue, as the manufacturer has been teasing the announcement of what may be its next tablet design, set to be revealed at Computex 2012 on May 31. One of the more recent rumors to deal with ASUS and its upcoming tablets concerns the possibility of working with Google to build a tablet for the company to call its own. Some of those claims have looked ...

It wasn't that long ago when a 13.3-inch Android tablet sounded like it was some sort of gigantic exaggeration. Of course, we were quick to learn that Toshiba was very much interested in releasing that tablet as a commercial product, and sure enough, the company ended up announcing it as the Excite 13. Surely, we must have been getting close to the upper limit on the practical size for a tablet, right? Don't tell that to ViewSonic, which is apparently working on a 22-inch Android device that seems more monitor than tablet. ViewSonic intends to demonstrate the 22-inch giant as part of its ...

NVIDIA had some interesting things to say about Android tablets back at the beginning of April, looking towards a future where it saw quad-core devices falling to the $200 mark. That sounded more than a little optimistic, especially if overall build quality was to remain high, but CEO Jen-Hsun Huang seemed quite enthusiastic about it becoming a possible reality. Now we're starting to see just what the company was talking about, upon revealing its Kai reference design. According to NVIDIA, Kai leverages the abilities of the Tegra 3 to allow manufacturers to put together tablet designs that ...

Three months ago we heard a story claiming that Microsoft was working on a version of its Office suite for Apple's iPad. A picture accompanying the rumor (above) sure looked how we might imagine the app would appear on a tablet, piquing our interest and suggesting there might be something to this news. While a company like Apple might have been content to let the rumors play their course, Microsoft decided to address the claims, first outright denying the picture's legitimacy, but later retreating to a softer position where it claimed the news was based on "bad info". Well, Microsoft might ...

For as similar as smartphones and tablets are, sharing operating systems, apps, and a good deal of their hardware, we don't use them all in the same manner. That's hardly surprising, as some tasks just lend themselves better to one form factor or the other; you might be more likely to watch Neftlix on your tablet, just as you'd be more likely to run some UPC-scanning price-comparison app on your phone. How do those different usage patterns end up affecting mobile data consumption? One recent report claims some pretty big differences between how much data we use on tablets versus ...
