Hanvon smash Apple in TouchPad B10 tablet stunt

As PR stunts go, launching your new iPad-rivalling tablet by smashing a huge Apple logo is a pretty obvious one, but the execs at Hanvon seemingly wanted to make it entirely clear what their TouchPad B10 is targeting.  The company's execs took to the stage and proceeded to batter a large Apple-shaped ice sculpture with hammers, before whipping out the Windows 7 based B10 for a quick demo.

Courier and Slate may be dead, but the Hanvon B10 and F10 live

Hanvon BC10C multitouch Win7 tablet gets tested: premium feel

Hanvon's BC10C (and its BA10E sibling) was a surprising stand-out from CeBIT 2010 recently, a multitouch-capable 10-inch slate running Windows 7.  jkkmobile managed to bring one home from the show, and has been testing it out to see whether it's all good news.  The upside is that media performance - thanks to the 1.3GHz Celeron ULV processor - is decent; the downside is that CULV notebook style components don't add up to extremes of battery life.

Is there room in your cold, dark heart for a basic multitouch slate running Windows 7?  Hanvon sure hopes so, with the Chinese manufacturer showing off just such a prototype at the IDF 2009 expo last week.  GottaBeMobile's Xavier was on hand to have a brief play, and he reckons the 8.9-inch Atom-based slate feels pretty good.

Hanvon N510 ebook reader: first space, now the world

Chinese firm Hanvon have announced a 5-inch ebook reader, the N510, using the E Ink Vizplex display and Hanvon's own pen-input technology.  The N510 is 11mm thick, in part because it has no backlighting, and has a 167ppi, SVGA 800 x 600 display.  It's a well-travelled design, too; astronauts used the N510 in space during the Shenzhou-7 space mission in September.
