WiFi only Motorola XOOM up for pre-order at B&H for $599

Mar

By Sovy

Good news for those who have been waiting for the Wi-Fi only version of the Motorola XOOM. The Android 3.0 tablet is currently available for pre-order in the United States at B&H. Of course there is reason to look forward to the XOOM tablet PC and the most obvious is the price advantage that the Wi-Fi only version has over its 3G counterpart. At 9, the Wi-Fi Motorola XOOM is a whole 0 less than the full blown 3G XOOM though both remains essentially the same feature wise.

However, there is no mention either from Motorola itself or B&H as to when the XOOM will eventually ship. There has also been news of Staples too coming in to offer the Wi-Fi XOOM where the shipping date has been mentioned as March 27. Also, B&H is likely to be getting only limited quantities of the XOOM, which means its only the early birds that will have their pre-orders honored. The good news though is that there are no shipping charges involved.

Samsung Galaxy Tab WiFi slated for April 4 release for $399

Mar

12

By Sovy

Samsung had promised a Wi-Fi only version of the Galaxy Tab during the time of its launch last year and when the high initial price tag of the tablet used to be the talk of the town. There were not many reputable alternative to the iPad then and the Galaxy Tab hit all the right check boxes in the consumer’s wish list. Except one – its price which was blamed to be the single most important factor that prevented it from being a success story it otherwise could have been. Samsung then had countered that with its promise of a Wi-Fi only version of the 7 inch tablet that would cost less than its 3G enabled counterparts.

Its good to see Samsung living up to the promise with company sources revealing they might have the Wi-Fi version ready for a release on the 4th of April. What is also good to see is that the original Galaxy Tab continues to be in the focus and is not being meted out second class treatment now that the company is busy preparing a bigger 8.9 and 10.1 inch tablet with the later we known will have Honeycomb as the default operating system.

The new Wi-Fi Galaxy Tab will be priced at 9. However, while that is affordable, it might a case of too little too late as the world has moved on significantly in these few months. Like the more potent Honeycomb has come into the picture while dual core processors are fast becoming an industry standard for the new tablets. In comparison, the 7 inch Galaxy Tab is based on Android 2.2 Froyo and is powered by a 1 GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor. While these new breed of tablet are more expensive, perhaps a little lower priced Wi-Fi Galaxy Tab would have made more sense.

LG wins FCC clearance for WiFi and 3G versions of G-Slate

Mar

05

By Sovy

The LG G-Slate is now past the FCC, which means we might not be too far away from another high profile tablet launch. In fact, things will be all the more exciting with the G-Slate since its not only just another tablet ported with Google Honeycomb, but its the first tablet in the world to come with 3D capabilities. LG has acquired the mandatory FCC certification for both the Wi-Fi only and the Wi-Fi + 3G versions of the G-Slate.

The G-Slate boasts of an integrated stereoscopic 3D camera and sports a display measuring 8.9 inches. This LG claims is just the right size that consumers want with a mobile device.

However, though as it seldom is, there is no information yet as to when we can expect the tablet at the retailers end or what is likely to be its cost. But then, it’s turning out to be a season of tablets already and the G-Slate is expected to break cover soon.

Woot offering Wi-Fi only 32 GB iPad for $480

Feb

By Sovy

A 32 GB Wi-Fi only iPad just 0! It sounds too incredible to be true, but that’s exactly what sellout.woot! is offering. That’s a whole 0 less than Apple charges for the regular Wi-Fi only iPad. With the whole new iPad 2 expected to break cover on the 2nd of March, maybe we will come across more cheap offers. Right now it’s only from sellout.Woot and the iPads are expected to sell out quickly. So all those who don’t mind grabbing a piece of technology that’s soon going to be become a bit closer to obsolete, you know where to go.

Kobo ereader – a hands-on review of the WiFi ereader





Kobo WiFi ereader, one man’s opinion of this ereader:

Ben Crawford, a Brisbane based IT Developer after having used it for some time, has written this review of his Kobo ereader for this blog so it it is a well considered and experience based assessment of this popular ereader, and thus, I hope will be of use to anyone out there who is trying to make up their mind as to which ereader they should buy themselves.

So, the word is now with Ben….. Read on……

My kobo review:

After using the kobo for a few months now, it is probably easier for me to say what I don’t like about it than what I love about it.

Although it comes loaded with 100 books (and I have read some), there is no way of getting them off the kobo except to delete them in Calibre.

The pc software that comes with the kobo sucks, there is no library management, and all you can do is search the Borders online store. I found it so hard to use this software that after a few days of failed attempts, I removed it from the pc and installed Calibre.

It takes a little while to load when you power it up each time. While this is not a real problem, it would be good to have a faster load time.

It always attempts to load any new content from the SD card, even when there is none. And when there is it takes a little longer than expected to load the new books.

The data entry is a pain as there is only the D-pad for entering data (during setup, online, etc). Due to this (and that I don’t need to) I have not used the online features to purchase any new books.

I find that the screen size is a little too small for the different text sizes that are available. If they increased the screen by 0.5cm each way the text would fit a little better, but now I’m getting picky…

Other than that, the kobo is great.

It’s easy to use.
Easy to load books on (with Calibre).
Easy to charge.

I love it. I think that I have read more books since xmas than I did all last year.

With thanks to Ben for this pithy review:

Ben makes a number of good points about the Kobo I feel, which I hope the good people at Kobo will take note of in future Firmware updates and ereaders they produce. but I note that he also mentions something that many people are finding once they have their own ereaders, and that is that they read many more books now than they ever did before owning one.

This doesn’t seem to be a temporary effect either, I know people who have owned ereaders now for several years, and they all agree, they read much more now, and watch less TV, which has to be a good side effect of ereaders in my view, and one that encourages me me a lot.
