Intel slider concept combines tablet and ultrabook form factors

Intel slider concept combines tablet and ultrabook form factors

The eye-popping Nikiski wasn't the only new form factor that Intel explored in its CES press conference. It also showed off an Ultrabook design called the Slider that's not unlike a few of the smartphones and tablets we've seen in the last few years. Like a QWERTY smartphone, it hides a full keyboard beneath a sliding screen, running on standard x86 hardware and low-voltage chips.

Motorola Pro+ Review

Motorola Pro+ Review

Motorola's DROID Pro made a play for the disloyal BlackBerry crowd, pairing Android with a QWERTY keyboard and touchscreen in a candybar form-factor.

Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Kindle 3 becomes Kindle Keyboard

Amazon will continue to sell the existing Kindle, complete with its physical keyboard, as the Amazon Kindle Keyboard.

Motorola EX225 Facebook phone spotted

Looks like it's Motorola's turn to out a Facebook phone, with the EX225 spotted crossing through the Bluetooth SIG complete with a QWERTY keyboard and a dedicated button for the social network. Packing 3G, a 3-megapixel camera and a 2.4-inch LCD TFT display, OS isn't specified but there are no obvious Android buttons. That suggests it may be a more mundane platform underneath the Motorola skin, such as BREW.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA mini pro Review

Sony Ericsson XPERIA mini pro Review

Take a cursory glance at the smartphone market and you'd be forgiven for assuming bigger always means better. Android smartphones are already available with vast screens, rumors suggest the iPhone 5 will introduce a larger display, and Windows Phone has just seen its first uber-panel with the 4.7-inch HTC Titan. Not everyone wants to fill their pocket with handset, however, and for them the Sony Ericsson XPERIA mini pro could tick more than a few boxes. Compact and yet still offering a full physical keyboard, Sony Ericsson's dinky device reckons it offers the best of both worlds, but can it live up to the billing? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
