A new report nutshell released today by Consumer Reports on the new iPad has taken to the wild world of Android to try to find comparable devices for the odd consumer. In addition to listing these, the product researchers at Consumer Reports reminded the public that the heat they found in the 2012 iPad was absolutely nothing to worry about, as it was still well within "who cares" standards for devices such as itself. The Android devices Consumer Reports went through, on the other hand, were reported as simple machines with one defining feature each, each of them good for a unique user situations.

CES 2012 Tablet Round-Up

CES 2012 Tablet Round-Up

This year's Consumer Electronics Show revealed itself to be the real Ice Cream Sandwich treat for tablets in the Android sector, with one whole load of crap tablets attempting to burst the bubble of the very few high-class units that were or will be soon certified by Google. On the Windows 8 side of things, there were certainly some tablets to be seen, but certainly not to be touched - Windows 8 will be ready later this year, but Microsoft wasn't having it when it came to showing it off fully here at the convention. Then there's oddities galore like the Samsung Galaxy Note, a device we'd seen late 2011, but until now had never had a chance to peek at it on a USA carrier - it's time!

Fujitsu Arrows Tab waterproof tablet hands-on

I'd say I always get a bit wary when a device toots its own horn about one specific specification it has and doesn't speak much at all about the rest, but who am I kidding: I love strange ideas like making a tablet able to be completely submerged in water with waterproofing enough to tell the tale. This isn't the only waterproof tablet to be shown off this week at CES 2012, the other being the Pantech Burst, which is said to be able to take a full minute of dunking without damage, but did prove itself to be much more hearty than that with a several-minute-dunk during its announcement at the AT&T developers keynote early in the week. What Fujitsu has here is that same waterproofing, but in a tablet that was revealed for sale in Japan several months ago.
