Sharp NetWalker PC-T1 gets reviewed: Only niche appeal

Sharp NetWalker PC-T1 gets reviewed: Only niche appeal

Back when it was officially announced, we described Sharp's NetWalker PC-T1 slate as the epitome of a niche device, and sadly Pocketables' review hasn't done anything to change our opinion.  The Linux-based 5-inch MID does several things right - its ostensibly chunky casing turning out to fit nicely into the hands, and some intuitively placed hardware controls like an optical trackpad - but in the end sluggish performance spoils the show.

Five aigo Android tablets launched: Tegra & 3G namechecked

Five aigo Android tablets launched: Tegra & 3G namechecked

aigo have been showing off their aigoPad tablets in China again, with their CEO promising five different models - various boasting 4-, 5- and 7-inch screen sizes - launching from July 2010.  Interestingly, Shanzhaiben's photos from the launch (note that "aigo" translates as "patriot" since that's the Chinese meaning) only seem to show two of the units - what looks to be the smallest and largest versions - and neither bears a huge resemblance to the renders we've seen before.

Eken's M001 Android MID certainly had promise - a bargain price tag will do that - but the end result, particularly dire battery life, left us cold.  Still, that's nothing a little elbow grease, soldering and time investment won't address, and that's just what Carnivore from the Slatedroid forums has done.  His M001 now has a USB hub, two new full-sized USB ports, 8GB of integrated storage and - most impressively - a total 5,200mAh of battery good for 7-12hrs of runtime.

O2 Dell Streak unboxing

O2 Dell Streak unboxing

Dell have just sent over their Streak Android MID, fresh to the O2 network today, and we've been getting to grips with it the 5-inch Snapdragon-based slate.  The company are insistent that this is a tablet, not a smartphone, but of course it really sits somewhere in-between.  Either way, it's fast, slick, and - as you quickly figure in the first few minutes of picking it up - great for web browsing.

ZTE V7 Maemo MID gets video hands-on

ZTE V7 Maemo MID gets video hands-on

ZTE's Maemo-running V7 MID showed up last month in render form at the Shanghai World Expo, but the company had a working prototype this week at Computex.  ARMDevices grabbed a hands-on with the compact, 4-inch WVGA handheld - which is based on an 806MHz Marvell PXA310 chipset and has a dinky little thumb-keyboard under the touchscreen - and to our surprise it looks pretty good.

Inventec Dr. Eye Gives the Android Based N18 a Ridiculous Name [Video]

Inventec Dr. Eye Gives the Android Based N18 a Ridiculous Name [Video]

Inventec's N18, or N18C, has been shown off more than a few times over the last year, but it's always kept to the standard title: some numbers, and a letter thrown in for good measure. Model numbers are a great way to name a product, but it's definitely better to give it some clever title. We might draw the line at Dr. Eye, though. It's a lot more unnerving than it probably needs to be.
