SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: March 30, 2012

Happy Friday, everyone. We're wrapping up the month just around the corner, and the last business day of March proved to be chock full of news. And it isn't all good news - Global Payments hacked, 50000 cardholders at risk. On a lighter note, though, the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone is now available for pre-orders. And here's something that'll have you thinking, "Why did it take so long?" - Google Maps gets real-time traffic.

Toshiba Libretto W100 Heading to Japan on August 11th

Toshiba Libretto W100 Heading to Japan on August 11th

While everyone was busy dreaming about the Microsoft Courier, Toshiba was already hard at work on one -- and one they actually planned to release. And while initial thoughts on the device have been all over the place on the Internet, the Libretto W100 does indeed do one thing very well: it's a good way to get your Courier needs placated, because you can't have the Courier. If you're in Japan, or if you're willing to take a few flights to get their, then be happy to know that the dual-screen tablet is landing on those shores August 11th.

Toshiba Libretto W100 hands-on [Video]

Dual-touchscreens, a clamshell book/netbook form-factor and a custom finger-friendly UI: the Toshiba Libretto W100 has broken the mold, and while the company concedes its resemblance to the Microsoft Courier renders, they're insisting it's a very different product. Based around two 7-inch capacitive touchscreen displays, a Pentium U5400 processor and a 62GB SSD, the Libretto W100 is the first such device to run Windows 7 and can be used either as a regular mini-notebook - complete with various on-screen keyboards - or as a digital book.

HoloLens hands-on: Building for Windows Holographic

HoloLens hands-on: Building for Windows Holographic

Back in January, HoloLens was a Frankenstein’s monster of a headset. In fact, the eyepiece itself was only part of the test rig: the rest was conspicuously tethered to it with a physical cable hooked up to a Windows 10 PC. To say there’s been a dramatic shift in hardware in the ninety days or so since then is an understatement. Microsoft brought a fleet of HoloLens prototypes to BUILD 2015, each of them a standalone computer, eyepiece, sensor rig, and spatial sound system all integrated into a single headset, and offered me the opportunity to see what creating a Windows Holographic experience was like.

HP pre-empts iPad Pro with Android and a screaming pen

HP pre-empts iPad Pro with Android and a screaming pen

Apple may be rumored to launch an iPad Pro with a special stylus, but HP has got there first with its latest Android tablets, the HP Pro Slate 8 and Pro Slate 12, packing a pen that uses sound not touch. Offered in both 7.9- and 12.3-inch sizes, the new tablets run Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 2.3GHz quadcore processor and are targeted at business users, particularly those who might want to digitize handwritten notes and sketches while on the move. Running Android 4.4 KitKat, they come with HP's own productivity apps, as well as sleek designs that look more than a little like HTC's One series of smartphones with their front-facing speakers.

Surface Pro 3 Review

Surface Pro 3 Review

The Surface Pro 3 is something special. Microsoft has refused to give up on its concept of one device that’s both a tablet and ultrabook, and its ramped up the trash-talk, too, calling out the MacBook Air and iPad by name when it launched the third-generation Windows 8.1 machine. Thing is, this may not just be hot air: bigger but lighter, faster but slimmer, the Surface Pro 3 might well be the hybrid Microsoft has been promising all this time. More importantly, it could well convince me - as an unabashed Mac and iPad user - that the Surface Pro 3 is now competitive. Read on for my full review.

Has functionality finally caught up with the Android spec race?

Has functionality finally caught up with the Android spec race?

Samsung has woken up to context: the Galaxy Note 10.1 has a fast quadcore processor and twice as much memory as most rivals, but listen to Samsung's pitch and you'd hardly know it. Instead of the usual breathless glee over hardware and technical abilities, the Note 10.1 tells you exactly what it can do with all that's under the hood. Namely, bring the stylus back in style, and create a compellingly different approach to tableteering, distinct to what Apple's iPad offers.

Samsung stokes content-creation controversy with Note 10.1 promo

Is your tablet for consuming content or for creating it?

A freshly-released promo video - which you can see after the cut - for the 10.1-inch quadcore Android tablet shows just how its digital stylus can be wielded during work, rest and play.

Samsung sets sights on stylus to beat iPhone and iPad

Samsung sets sights on stylus to beat iPhone and iPad

Samsung is set to have a pen-happy August with the arrival of styli-stroked slates large and small, as the company attempts to bypass the iPad and iPhone and establish its own niche. Challenging Apple's full-sized tablet is the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, announced back in February and finally hitting shelves worldwide this month in WiFi-only and HSPA+ flavors; however, long-standing rumors suggest a smaller "phablet" is also in the pipeline for an August reveal, replacing the Galaxy Note.
