Hanvon cut dual-touch Pen/Finger tablet costs with ERT tech

Hanvon cut dual-touch Pen/Finger tablet costs with ERT tech

When we reviewed HTC's Flyer earlier this week, we described the pen-and-touch slate as an expensive risk for the company to take. Fitting an active digitizer obviously increases bulk and, more importantly, cost - a tricky proposition if some people may never actually bother buying the pen. All that could change with the advent of Hanvon's Dual-Touch ERT Technology, however,

Hanvon HPad A116 Hands On

Hanvon HPad A116 Hands On

Hanvon was on hand at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to show off a new tablet device they are engineering. The device has plenty of features, and a display size that rivals the majority of other Android-based tablets currently available on the market (along with many more that are coming down the pipe). However, this tablet has a few tricks up its sleeve.

Hanvon TouchPad B20 Hands On

Hanvon TouchPad B20 Hands On

While we were at Hanvon, and we got time to play with the Android tablet running Microsoft Word and other Office applications, we managed to steal some face time with another tablet the company is creating -- the TouchPad B20. This device is bigger than the Android version, and Hanvon decided to go with Microsoft's Operating System, instead of Google's mobile offering.

Hanvon WISEreader E920 claims better readability

Hanvon WISEreader E920 claims better readability

It seems the higher-resolution path is one that ereader manufacturers are increasingly taking, with iriver setting its stall at the 6-inch point of the market, and Hanvon's new WISEreader E920 claiming boosted performance at the 9.7-inch point. The E920 uses the same casing design as the color ereader launched last year, but with a monochrome 200dpi panel instead.

Hanvon color eReader up for pre-order with hybrid pen/finger touchscreen

Hanvon color eReader up for pre-order with hybrid pen/finger touchscreen

Hanvon's color ereader isn't expected to arrive until Q1 2011, using E Ink's freshly announced Triton e-paper display, but the company is apparently already taking pre-orders. Tipped for February 2011 delivery, the first version will be WiFi-only and is priced at 3,500 yuan ($528); it will be followed by a 3G model for around 3,800 yuan ($574).

Hanvon color E Ink ereader due March 2011 with WiFi/3G

Hanvon color E Ink ereader due March 2011 with WiFi/3G

Hanvon look likely to be the first company to launch a color ereader based on an e-paper display rather than an LCD. According to the New York Times, the Chinese company will unveil its so-far unnamed ereader device at the FPD International 2010 tradeshow in Tokyo, complete with a 9.68-inch color e-paper screen from industry heavyweight E Ink.

E Ink had previously promised that their color e-paper screens should be available by the end of 2010, though the Hanvon model will miss that launch window. Instead it's expected to arrive in China in March 2011 - we're guessing it'll be brought to CES 2011 in January with great fanfare as well - with a reasonably hefty price-tag of $440, though that will also include WiFi and 3G connectivity for downloading content while mobile.

Windows 7 takes on iPad… and holds its own?

Windows 7 takes on iPad… and holds its own?

Plenty gets said about Windows 7 and its suitability for tablets, and despite Steve Ballmer's best efforts not much of it is positive.  But have we all been too harsh on the Microsoft OS?  A side-by-side comparison video pitting a Hanvon slate running Windows 7 agains the iPad running iOS goes some way to suggesting that the desktop OS can hold its own against its Apple counterpart.
