Toshiba Thrive 7-inch hands-on

This week we've got the opportunity to take a peek at Toshiba's second Thrive tablet, this one a 7-inch device with many of the same specifications as its 10-inch relative. It's got the same rubbery ridged back and no less than a 5 megapixel camera and a 2 megapixel camera to keep you video chatting and snapping pics galore. This device is set to be not necessarily the next generation device for Toshiba but a companion release for the 10-inch version that came out last year.

Qualcomm: Tegra 3 is a “single use product”

Qualcomm: Tegra 3 is a “single use product”

Qualcomm is pushing to make its Snapdragon mobile chipset brand more visible in the consumer marketplace, dismissing the threat of NVIDIA's Tegra 3 as a "single use product" and even temporarily rebranding the Qualcomm Stadium as the "Snapdragon Stadium" from this weekend. Speaking at a pre-CES briefing today, Qualcomm's Senior Vice President of Software Strategy Rob Chandhok suggested that, while Tegra 2 may have been found in many of the headline-grabbing tablets and phones over the past twelve months, "in the mobile space, I'm not sure that NVIDIA has any more brand awareness than we do." The company is similarly unconcerned about the quadcore Tegra 3.

ASUS Transformer Prime hands-on with games Bladeslinger, Glowball, Chidori

What you're about to witness is a set of three hands-on videos of a few games that were included on the ASUS Transformer Prime Android tablet when it came to your humble narrator's doorstep last week for review. While none of these three games will be on your tablet when you first pull it out of the box later this month, you'll be able to purchase them eventually, be it the moment you hit the Android Market or sometime early next year when the game is finished. First we've got a platform demo by Chidori in a fighting game, then the already classic Glowball real-time generated 3D environment game, and Bladeslinger - 3rd person battle in the old west with monsters galore.

Acer Iconia Tab A200 official: Budget slate with ICS promise

Acer Iconia Tab A200 official: Budget slate with ICS promise

Acer has officially announced the Iconia Tab A200, its latest Android tablet, though don't expect any Transformer Prime-style performance rivalry here. The Iconia Tab A200 runs Android 3.2 on a Tegra 2 processor, not the newer Tegra 3, promising affordability rather than cutting-edge specs. However, Acer has confirmed that the A200 is in line for an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade come January 2012.

Context, not Cores, is the Tablet Industry’s Challenge

Context, not Cores, is the Tablet Industry’s Challenge

Samsung showed off what makes it special this morning, with the new Exynos 5250 mobile chipset getting official ahead of its debut in next-gen smartphones and tablets next year. A 2GHz dual-core - with what Samsung reckons is twice the overall grunt of the company's current 1.5GHz dual-cores and four times the 3D graphics prowess - the Exynos 5250 is also interesting because, unlike NVIDIA, Samsung has opted for a pair of ARM Cortex A15 cores, rather than four A9 cores as in the Tegra 3. That's going to raise plenty of questions about comparative performance, heat output and power frugality, but perhaps most importantly - in the marketplace, at least - it's going to prompt an interesting marketing challenge for every company pushing a tablet or phone.
