Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Review

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Review

This week we've gotten the next Galaxy Player family member in the house with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. What's that, you say? The Galaxy Tab 2 is a tablet and not a Galaxy Player? I beg to differ, ladies and gentlemen, as the Samsung world has done a big split in recent months, with no less than the Galaxy Tab 2 line heading in the direction of the media player while the Galaxy Note line (including the 10.1, for example) moves in the direction the Galaxy Tab 10.1 original started in back at Google I/O in 2011. Have a peek at what the Tab 2 line continues here in the 2 10.1 for the media world.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Review

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Review

There's a brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet in town, and this one is what Samsung hopes will be a whole new experience driver for the whole hardware family. Where what we've seen before from Samsung has been a set of tablets that tried to be everything at once, this and the 10.1-inch version of the Galaxy Tab 2 are both aiming more at the services they can provide with other devices rather than concentrating on that plus content creation plus gaming plus a partridge in a pear tree. What we've got here instead is Samsung's suite of connected services encapsulated in one machine - and it feels nice to use, too!

New iPad: The Skeptic’s Review

New iPad: The Skeptic’s Review

I sent back the iPad 2, but I'm keeping the new iPad. Two years ago I wrote my first iPad skeptic's review, a more oblique - and personal - opinion on Apple's tablet than the traditional SlashGear review. A year later I did the same for the iPad 2, finding it improved but, from a combination of hardware and software, not sufficient of an upgrade for my needs to justify keeping it. Now Apple is up to its third-generation tablet, criticized by some as another "minor" refresh but in fact a considerable step up in the overall user-experience.

New iPad Review (3rd Gen)

New iPad Review (3rd Gen)

Apple's new iPad arrives to more than its fair share of expectations. The third generation tablet follows models that first created and then accelerated the consumer slate experience, and all eyes are on the new iPad to see whether it can keep up the momentum. Those eyes will have plenty to reward them, too: the biggest change to the new iPad is its incredibly detailed Retina Display. Pre-orders are through the roof, and queues outside Apple Stores began a week ahead of sales starting: there's no doubting interest is high, but does the new iPad live up to expectations? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE Review

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE Review

The size range of Android-based devices Samsung has made over the past year is far and away the largest any manufacturer has yet achieved, and if you're unable to find the screen size you desire at the moment, you likely have only to wait another week or month and poof! It will appear. That said, it appears that the Galaxy Tab 7.7 has appeared here in the USA in an LTE edition made specifically for Verizon, and having taken a glance at every single other display size in the lineup I can comfortably say the following: this is one of the best.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 Review

This week we've seen two Motorola tablets, both of them with essentially the same name DROID XYBOARD, this the smaller of the two at 8.2-inches in screen size. While the 10.1-inch display sized iteration costs a bit more and does afford you a bit more screen real-estate, what you're about to see is an account that'll let you know how little you're missing when you go with the slightly more convenient sized 8.2. That and we've got a couple of accessories to peek at as well. Also note that if you're looking for the 10.1-inch version, you've only to check out the timeline after the second paragraph to head on down the rabbit hole.
