Microsoft reportedly to produce 7.5 inch tablet

Back on April 11, we heard rumor that Microsoft is working on a 7-inch Surface tablet, with the information being provided to The Wall Street Journal by unnamed sources. That rumor has surfaced again, this time with NPD DisplaySearch telling the folks over at CNET that Microsoft will produce a 7.5-inch tablet of some sort, and that unlike the late-2013 date supplied by the original sources, the tablet won't be available until 2014.

Sony Xperia Tablet Z finally gets a US ship date

Sony's Xperia Tablet Z is finally up for preorder in the US, the 10.1-inch Android slate priced from $499.99 after having been unexpected delayed. Announced at Mobile World Congress back in February as the waterproof big-screen sibling of the Xperia Z smartphone, the Tablet Z is expected to ship in the US come May 24. UPDATE: As noted by the company, It would appear that Sony's actual release date promise has been kept - as their original word included a May release in some regions and "varied" availability in others, this date is still as it was, so to speak.

Where is the HTC One tablet?

Where is the HTC One tablet?

This week as the HTC One hits the public on several carriers, we're left thinking about the slightly larger display size HTC might utilize in the near future. With the HTC One doing - presumably - relatively well in the market thus far (if news coverage and hype are any indicators), might HTC make room for another attempt at a tablet in the near future? We certainly wouldn't mind seeing a multi-columned BlinkFeed, that's for sure.

Apple's iPad remains the most satisfying tablet for US users, new J.D. Power consumer research suggests, though Amazon's Kindle Fire range is close behind the Cupertino slates.

PLAiR device recollects Nexus Q laptop-to-TV video streaming

PLAiR device recollects Nexus Q laptop-to-TV video streaming

It would appear that the lost product that was the Google Nexus Q is back again - though not created with the same technology, exactly, and certainly not manufactured by the same brand. What's appearing this week is a device by the name of PLAiR, made approximately the size of the palm of a human hand and attachable to the back of your television via its full-sized HDMI port (if your television was made in the past 10 years, you've got one). This device will allow users to play video from their laptop or smartphone wirelessly to the screen of their TV.

7-inch tablets are the most popular Android tablets

In an unsurprising report, it looks like 7-inch tablets are the most popular Android tablets. While some people prefer the bigger screen real estate of a 10-inch tablet, or the perfect screen balance of a 8.9-inch tablet, neither sized tablets have the affordability of a 7-inch tablet. According to Animoca, an app publisher for entertainment products for Android devices, the top tablets that use its services are 7-inch tablets.

Microsoft reportedly planning 7-inch line of Surface tablets

Sources have tipped off The Wall Street Journal about a new line of Surface tablets being produced by Microsoft, these ones measuring in at 7-inches and being slated for production some time towards the end of 2013. Expounding on this was one source who said the 7-inch line of Surface devices is a somewhat knee-jerk reaction by Microsoft, whose plans didn't include them last year, to the popularity of competing 7-inch slates.

ASUS rolls out MeMo Pad 7 Android tablet for $149

If you're in the market for a cheap Android tablet and the Nexus 7 is a bit too expensive, Asus's MeMoPad 7 hit stores today for the low price of $149. A teaser video of the tablet was released back in February, and while it doesn't offer quite the same level of hardware available on slightly more expensive tablets, it will certainly work fine as an ereader and casual browsing slate, or as a device for the kids to use instead of your more expensive devices.
