Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 hits the sink

It's not often that technology and water make a splash together, but Logitech is certainly the one who can make it happen here and now with the Washable Keyboard K310. This keyboard is a USB-connected accessory and can be washed in up to 11-inches of water without being damaged.

Archos 101 XS Review

Archos 101 XS Review

This week we've got our hands on the Archos 101 XS tablet (part of the G10 series) with included keyboard dock, featuring a dual-core OMAP 4470 processor and a 10.1-inch display as well as Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This tablet brings on a nearly completely vanilla version of Android, here bringing on an un-skinned version of the software essentially the same as the Google Nexus lineup of tablets and smartphones.

This update also changes out SwiftKey's voice recognition for the official Android Ice Cream Sandwich / Jelly Bean voice input from Google.

Archos G10 Android tablet brings on teaser for IFA

Archos G10 Android tablet brings on teaser for IFA

This week the folks at Archos have previewed their next-generation Android tablet for use with a special keyboard dock and what's undoubtedly an ultra-powerful multi-core processor. What sets this device aside from the competition here in its very unrevealed state is the fact that it does not pull up from its included keyboard dock as a notebook would, but rather sits in the dock separately like we've seen happen with the iPad's Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover. With a note that suggest the Archos G10, as it's called, will be out in 3 weeks, we must assume that we'll see it at IFA 2012 in Berlin.
