Windows 8 makes manufacturers touchy at IFA 2012

Windows 8 makes manufacturers touchy at IFA 2012

This week in Berlin at IFA 2012 we're seeing a large amount of manufacturers bringing on touchscreens and convertible, transformable, or otherwise completely strange Windows 8 computers. There's everything from a flipping screen to a flat horizontal interface, and so many tablets that we don't know where to begin. One thing they've all got in common: they're attempting to make use of Windows 8's ability to work with interactive touchscreens and gestures galore.

Dell IFA 2012 Wrap-Up

Dell IFA 2012 Wrap-Up

Today's the second major day of news from IFA 2012, and while Samsung and Sony both got their time in the spotlight yesterday (Samsung in particular had a lot to talk about, but Sony had some big announcements as well), today it's Dell's turn. It seems that everyone is jumping on the Windows 8 and Windows RT train lately, and Dell is no exception. Today it revealed a handful of new devices that will be making friends with Windows 8 and Windows RT.

Snapdragon S4 greatness touted for Windows RT tablets from Samsung and Dell

Snapdragon S4 greatness touted for Windows RT tablets from Samsung and Dell

It would appear that Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 processor line is making the rounds this year at IFA 2012, today appearing in both Samsung and Dell's Windows RT tablets. The first of these is the Samsung ATIV Tab 10-inch tablet (check out our hands-on experience) with 1366 x 768 pixel resolution and an 8.9mm thin body. Then there's the Dell XPS 10 which we got eyes-on time with this week as well - complete with 10-inch multi-touch display and keyboard dock for converting the device into a notebook.

Dell XPS One 27 Hands-on

Dell XPS One 27 Hands-on

The Dell XPS One 27 isn't a new all-in-one PC, but with Windows 8 and full multitouch it really comes into its own. Fronted by a huge 27-inch Quad HD LCD - that's 2560 x 1440 - and mounted on an adjustable stand, it's an interesting alternative approach to all-in-ones to what we've seen from the other big name in the marketplace, Apple's iMac.

Dell XPS Duo 12 eyes-on

Dell XPS Duo 12 eyes-on

Dell's XPS Duo 12 has some lineage, but it's not really the sort of ancestry you'd want to talk about too loudly. The original Inspiron Duo was a case of good in theory, poor in practice: a notebook with a rotating touchscreen that could turn it into a slate, let down by an underperforming CPU, clunky build and Windows 7's lack of finger-friendliness. Now, with the XPS Duo 12, Dell has brought some of its ultrabook knowledge to the concept, and from what we've seen today it's with good result.

Dell XPS 10 tablet eyes-on

Dell XPS 10 tablet eyes-on

Dell is playing things coy with the XPS 10 tablet, keeping things behind glass for the most part, but we managed to coax the 10-inch slate out for some hands-off photography. Actually playing with the Windows RT tablet isn't an option here at its IFA launch, unfortunately, but we've at least seen how slick Dell's industrial design is for the metal slate.

Dell XPS One 27 gets Windows 8 and multitouch

Dell XPS One 27 gets Windows 8 and multitouch

Dell has launched its latest XPS all-in-one desktop, refreshing the XPS One 27 and including a touchscreen for navigating Windows 8. Targeted both at domestic and business users, the One 27 runs at Quad HD 2560 x 1440 resolution with 3.7m pixels, and - with Dell disagreeing strongly with Apple's hands-on approach for AIOs - allows you to page through Windows without using a keyboard or mouse.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 21, 2012

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 21, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday evening, everyone. Let's jump right into the news, shall we? Today Apple delivered its closing arguments in the suit against Samsung, and it didn't pull any punches. Additionally, we found out that jurors deciding the case have been given various devices to help them decide who's in the right, but can't do much of anything with them. Apple's stock took a bit of a dip after it was crowned the most valuable public company ever, and some good news coming out of Foxconn, as its progress report with Fair Labor Association came back positive.
