Lenovo ThinkPad Helix hands-on: Rip and Flip

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix hands-on: Rip and Flip

This week we've gotten both our first introduction to the newest in Lenovo's Windows 8 wares and a first hands-on experience with gems such as the ThinkPad Helix. This machine is one of the new breed of transformable tablet PCs running full Windows 8 with a touchscreen monitor and full keyboard, but it's got a bonus: you can flip it around backward and plug it back in the other way around.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 5, 2012

We've arrived at another Friday evening, which means that the weekend lies ahead. Today, as many of you probably already know, was the one-year anniversary of the passing of Steve Jobs. Apple paid tribute to Jobs in a new video released today, and it was announced that three modified MacBook Pros will be auctioned off in memory of Jobs. On the lighter side of things, Lenovo is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the ThinkPad with a look back through time, and Samsung's profits for Q3 2013 managed to break company records (not an easy thing to do, considering how popular Samsung is).

IFA 2012: Note II, 4K TV, Windows wobbles and more

IFA 2012: Note II, 4K TV, Windows wobbles and more

4K TV, Windows tableteering, segment straddling smartphones, and cross-company sniping: another year, another IFA. We've seen the show coalesce around a few key themes before, and 2012 proved no different, as manufacturers took a suck-it-and-see strategy to try to cash in on holiday hardware sales. As always, the specter of Apple loomed heavy, despite the Cupertino firm's resolute absence. Read on for the highlights of IFA 2012.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 30, 2012

Welcome to Thursday evening folks. We had a lot of news coming out of Germany for the second day of our IFA 2012 trip, so let's jump in. We have a ton of hands-on posts to get through, but first, be sure to have a look at our Dell IFA 2012 Wrap-Up for all of the details on what the company announced and what it let us see. Moving on, today was a big opportunity to get some hands-on time with a bunch of different devices announced at IFA today and yesterday, and of course we took full advantage of it.

Windows 8 makes manufacturers touchy at IFA 2012

Windows 8 makes manufacturers touchy at IFA 2012

This week in Berlin at IFA 2012 we're seeing a large amount of manufacturers bringing on touchscreens and convertible, transformable, or otherwise completely strange Windows 8 computers. There's everything from a flipping screen to a flat horizontal interface, and so many tablets that we don't know where to begin. One thing they've all got in common: they're attempting to make use of Windows 8's ability to work with interactive touchscreens and gestures galore.

SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: August 9th, 2012

This morning it's time for the leaks to come rolling in, starting with the Sony Xperia Tablet - all thin and new looking. Two "pre-human" species have been found in another awesome day in science that'll be bringing new understanding to us on the whole "where did we come from" question. There's still a bunch of Agent Orange over in Vietnam from the conflict they (and we) had about 40 years ago - now we're going to help get rid of it with super-heat.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 1, 2012

We've collided head-on with the month of August, and today we had some interesting news stories to ring in the eighth month of the year. Surprisingly enough, we didn't have too much news about the ongoing trial between Apple and Samsung, except for the part where Samsung made Apple really angry by sending evidence that the original iPhone was inspired by Sony designs out to the press. Samsung found itself in a bit of hot water after that leak, so this evening it seems that Samsung has managed to get on Judge Lucy Koh's bad side. The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit said today that the Galaxy Nexus can remain on sale until August 20 despite Apple's request for its preliminary injunction against the phone to be restored, so if you've been planning to buy one, your window to do so has been extended.

This first of the month we've got analysis that says things aren't going to look fabulous for Microsoft while, believe it or not, Apple sits right on top of the second quarter for PC shipments. If you're looking to pick up a Samsung Galaxy Nexus you're in luck -it's escaped its lawful bonds once again. There's a new tip on the iPhone side of things, two new elements: Bluetooth 4 and a magsafe-style dock connector.
