Dell Canvas hands-on: Surface Studio gets a slick art rival

Dell may be one of Microsoft's closest Windows partners, but that didn't stop it bringing along some Surface Studio competition to CES today. The Dell Canvas may not have a built-in computer like Microsoft's posable all-in-one, but pair it with a Windows notebook - and, optionally, a second display - and you have the art hub any Photoshop pro could be proud of. I stopped by to rub my grubby fingers all over it.

Dell Canvas is a 27-inch QHD ‘smart workspace’ display for artists

Dell has unveiled its new Dell Canvas, a 27-inch so-called “smart workspace” alternative to the Surface Studio, only without the PC aspect of the latter device. This display has a QHD resolution and is targeted at artists, among others, who may want to work on their creations in a manner similar to pen on paper: flat on their desk or worktable.

Razer Project Valerie hands-on at CES 2017: 3-screen laptop gaming is here

The Razer Project Valerie laptop has three displays - and all three are really, truly dedicated to gaming. Each of these displays is connected to the base computer, creating a laptop that's thicker than the company's standard Razer Blade, but all the more versatile as a result. While this notebook isn't the sort we'll be trusting around clumsy miscreants while engaged, the hardware used to make this project a reality is well worth the gander.

Apple’s 5K display of choice starts shipping as USB-C discount extended

Apple has begun sales of LG's 5K Thunderbolt 3 display, at the same time extending its promotional discount on USB Type-C accessories for several months.

Galaxy S8 release details: Y this display is sweet

The Samsung Galaxy S8 may well bring technology from the dead Galaxy Note 7 back to life in a display that's ultra-thin.

Wacom Cintiq Pro hits back at Surface Studio with better pens

Wacom Cintiq Pro hits back at Surface Studio with better pens

Microsoft’s unveiling of the Surface Studio undoubtedly made an impression on Wacom, and maybe not in a good way. Microsoft has clearly been aiming at Wacom’s target audience ever since the Surface Pro tablets, but using N-Trig, a rival technology that Microsoft now owns. Still, Wacom has had a long head start in this market and is the household name when it comes to creativity devices. Now it wants to remind everyone about that with its new Cintiq Pro line, bringing pen and display in a somewhat more portable package.

Vufine+ wearable display beams iPhone or drone to your eye

Vufine+ wearable display beams iPhone or drone to your eye

Google Glass, among its faults, pretty much killed off the head-mounted display segment, but Kickstarter success Vufine is hoping to reignite interest with its latest wearable. The Vufine+, launching on Kickstarter today, doesn't attempt to do all of the social networking, notification flagging, and voice-controlled interactions which Glass tried to persuade us we needed, and nor - vitally - does it have a camera. Instead, it brings video from your phone, laptop, drone, or pretty much anything else to your eye-line.

Samsung Galaxy S8 reported to be 90% screen, almost no bezels

Because of the sensational failure that was the Galaxy Note 7, every new rumored detail about the coming Galaxy S8 is put under a microscope. Of course, perhaps jokingly, the question is always “will it burn?” The latest tip might not have anything to do directly with batteries but might be just as hotly debated. A Samsung Display researcher has hinted that the company is investing heavily in research that would give the Galaxy S8 a near bezel-less display that will take up 90% of its face.
