Sony VAIO Duo 11 hands-on

Sony likes to do things differently, and the VAIO Duo 11 is its unusual entrant to the Windows 8 tablet market. Billed as a "hybrid sliding PC" the Duo 11 looks, at first glance, like a chunky tablet, but pull up just above the front-facing webcam and the touchscreen slides back and up to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. It's an approach we've seen before, from the ASUS Eee Pad Slider, but here running Microsoft's full Windows platform and with a digital stylus for handwriting and sketching.

Tablets: an Android 2011 Retrospective

When the year 2011 is looked back upon by the Google historians, they'll mark it as the first time they officially made an effort to bring the Android platform to devices with displays larger than handheld smartphones - what we saw, as a result, was everything from the XOOM to the ASUS Transformer Prime. The folks at Google created a version of their mobile operating system Android titled Honeycomb and numbered version 3.0.

Fujitsu Lifebook TH40/D gets hands on treatment

We talked a little bit about the interesting looking Fujitsu TH40/D last month. This tablet reminds me a bit of the Asus Eee Pad Slider tablet.
