Forrester: iPad’s Success Means More Tablet Competitors

Forrester: iPad’s Success Means More Tablet Competitors

In a new report from Forrester, we've got some pretty common sense revelations. The new report from Sarah Rotman Epps, suggests that while the iPad is wildly successful, that also means that plenty of new competitors are on the way. What's more, most of those competitors are trying to jump on Apple's success of the word "pad," and infusing it with their own tablet titles. We've all heard of the BlackPad, after all -- and Forrester believes there will be plenty more in the future.

Two Toshiba ARM tablets & Lenovo smartbook 1.5GHz resurrection tipped

Two Toshiba ARM tablets & Lenovo smartbook 1.5GHz resurrection tipped

Smartbook rumors a-plenty this morning, as Toshiba and Lenovo's plans for the rest of 2010 seep out of Taipei.  According to DigiTimes' sources, while Toshiba has already shown its first smartbook - which it insists on calling a MID - the Tegra 250 based AC100, the company is also apparently preparing two ARM-based tablet PCs for launch by the end of the year.  Meanwhile, Lenovo's mysterious plans for their own smartbooks have been linked with faster Qualcomm Snapdragon processors.

Libretto W100: has Toshiba delivered Courier?

Libretto W100: has Toshiba delivered Courier?

Put the promo shots of the new Toshiba Libretto W100 next to the leaked renders of Microsoft's Courier project and you'd be forgiven for assuming one is the production version of the other.  When I talked to Toshiba late last week at a preview for the new Libretto, however, they were keen to distance their new gadget from what was described by one team member as "only ever a design study".  Of course, two screens and a finger-friendly interface mean the product and the project will inevitably be compared, so just how well does the Libretto W100 live up to the Courier promise, and - more importantly perhaps - where does it most significantly fall short?

Toshiba 128GB flash perfect for updated iPad & iPhone 4

One minor surprise at the Apple iPhone 4 launch earlier this month was the storage on offer from the new smartphone.  The absence of a 64GB iPhone 4 raised a few eyebrows, especially given Toshiba had already revealed a 64GB NAND chip back in December 2009; now Toshiba has followed up with a 128GB NAND flash memory module, the biggest embedded chip in the industry and seemingly ideal for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

Synaptics Fuse concept packs smartphone with squeeze, stroke & scroll sensors [Video]

Synaptics Fuse concept packs smartphone with squeeze, stroke & scroll sensors [Video]

The last Synaptics concept we really got excited about was the Onyx smartphone - in fact we went all the way to the company's head office to play with their prototype - and now they're back with a new smartphone idea.  The Synaptics Fuse takes multitouch capacitive sensing and throws in force, grip and proximity sensing, along with haptic feedback and 3D graphics.  The end result is a squeezable smartphone that spreads its sensors not only across the touchscreen but down the sides, too, so as to be fully usable even with just one hand.  Fuse is a collaboration between Synaptics, TI, Immersion, TheAlloy and The Astonishing Tribe, and is based on a TI OMAP 3630 processor and a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen.
