Tablets killed Smartbooks says Qualcomm CEO

Tablets killed Smartbooks says Qualcomm CEO

Qualcomm has all but confirmed that the smartbook is dead, with CEO Paul Jacobs admitting during the company's IQ 2010 event this morning that tablets such as the iPad had already occupied the niche his company expected smartbooks to.  Jacobs described slates like the iPad as delivering the concept of "always-on, all-day devices" that smartbooks had initially promised.

E-Noa Interpad Tegra 2 tablet hands-on

E-Noa Interpad Tegra 2 tablet hands-on

E-Noa's Tegra 2 based Interpad was one of those tablets we harboured quiet doubts over back in July, uncertain whether the company could beat big-name rivals to the market with their Android 2.2 slate.  Having met the company at IFA 2010 this week, though, it seems they're well on their way to making some sales.  The Interpad isn't quite ready - E-Noa are apparently still working on a custom UI that will suit the 10-inch 1024 x 600 multitouch display - but it was certainly functional enough.

Toshiba Folio 100 hands-on [Video]

Toshiba Folio 100 hands-on [Video]

Toshiba launched their Folio 100 smartpad earlier this week, and we grabbed some hands-on time with the Android 2.2 Froyo table at IFA 2010 today.  The second significant Android slate of the day - after we played with the smaller Samsung Galaxy Tab earlier on - it's a bigger beast too, with a 10-inch capacitive touchscreen (with 4-point multitouch) and NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chipset like its AC100 sibling.  The good news is that it's a reasonably decent slate; the bad is that it looks like it won't be reaching the US.

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

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.
