Motorola Xyboard Review: It Only Looks Like It Can Fly

Xyboard. It sounds like a xylophone made sweaty, mumbly love to a chalkboard. Putting that aside, the Xyboard is a pretty serious tablet with an IR blaster, boom-packing speakers, and hardware that screams more "stealth bomber!" than "another generic Android tablet you don't care about." » 1/03/12 4:30pm 1/03/12 4:30pm

Meet the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, the World's First…

No One Uses Android Tablets (Or No One Has Android Tablets to Use)

There's something like 8,142* different Android Tablets on sale right now yet it seems like no one is really using them. I mean, I've yet to see one in public! But that's an inexact method of testing. More exact? How the iPad usage obliterates Android tablets in web traffic. According to Comscore, iPads made up for… » 10/11/11 9:48am 10/11/11 9:48am

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Review: The New Best Android Tablet, Again

I had major deja vu writing this. That's because as cool as the Galaxy Tab 8.9 is, it's basically just the Galaxy Tab 10.1, but slightly smaller. Which actually makes it noticeably better. » 10/10/11 5:30pm 10/10/11 5:30pm

Toshiba Thrive 7-Inch Tablet Hands-On: Like the Original Thrive Went…

We wanted to love the original Thrive tablet with its many full-sized ports, but oh man was it chunky. The Thrive 7-Inch is almost exactly the same, but everything is smaller. It's still chunky, but it's not too much anymore. » 9/27/11 8:00pm 9/27/11 8:00pm
