  • Velocity Micro Cruz D610 tablet to appear on CES 2013 with 10 inch screen and Android 4.1 OS

    Posted on January 5th, 2013 David Brooks | 186 comments

    With the approaching of CES 2013, many electronic manufacturers are preparing to get more attentions. And in the CES 2013, we are certain to have the change to know more advanced products. Velocity Micro is just one of the companies busy preparing for the CES 2013. The previous released Velocity Micro 10 inches Q610 failed to attract eyes for its poor screen resolution and unreasonable price. To change the situation, Velocity Micro Company has decided to output a comparatively low priced and higher configured tablet on CES 2012. That is the Velocity Micro Cruz D610 tablet.

    Cruz D610 tablet

    The new tablet from Velocity Micro is a 10-inch Cruz D610 tablet. The 10-inch tablet ships with Android 4.0 and houses a 1.5GHz dual processor and 1GB of RAM. The Cruz D610 comes with 8GB internal storage, a microSD expansion slot, a 0.3 megapixel front camera, a 2MP back camera for video shooting and image taking, and 1024×768 pixels resolution of screen. Ports include microUSB and mini-HDMI. According to Velocity Micro, prices will start at $199 with a release by end of the first quarter this year.

    Though Cruz D610 has been improved on both screen resolution and processor, the 10-inch large screen would still not produce satisfactory effect for people to watch HD movies with the 1024×768 pixels screen resolution. And the price is also not competitive when compared with other tablets, especially like some 7-inch tablets like Nexus 7.

  • 11.6-inch Windows 8 Laptop-Tablet Hybrid HP Envy X2 Review

    Posted on September 3rd, 2012 David Brooks | 315 comments

    On the IFA 2012 trade show, HP released its first Windows 8 laptop-tablet hybrid, namely Sony Envy X2. Just like other electronic manufacturers who have released hybrid laptop-tablet, Envy X2 owns both laptop and tablet forms. When connected with keyboard during using, this new device is no difference from a laptop. While disconnected with keyboard, it is a portable tablet just like the new iPad. The overall configuration of this new hybrid tablet is very attractive, including: a 11.6-inch touch screen with 1366×768 pixels screen resolution makes it quite wonderful for watching HD videos/DVD on Sony Envy X2; adopts the next generation of Intel Clover Trail processor with 2GB RAM and 64GB SSD space; the latest Windows 8 operating system; dual camera with a main 8MP camera on the rear; Beats audio technique for high quality audio effect, etc.

    Sony Envy X2On appearance, HP Envy X2 comes in aluminum alloy shell, solid and smooth. The whole tablet body thickness is only 8.4mm and weights about 680g, while connected to keyboard the tablet would be a little heavier than 1400g. The 11.6-inch touch screen display supports multi-touch capacitive touch control, with front camera for video chatting on the right upper. While from the back side, there is a big hp logo, with an 8MP main camera and LED flashlight for picture and video shooting on the head part. The inconvenient thing might be that the separate design of power button and volume adjusting button which are separately designed on different sides.

    Sony Envy X2The bottom of the tablet has a data port to connect with keyboard. The bottom flanks are magnetic card slots to connect with keyboard, while the 3.5mm headset jack locates on the rightmost. The keyboard left flank respectively arranges a HDMI port, a USB3.0 port and a 3.5mm audio jack, while the right flank contains a USB3.0 port and an expandable port with a coverable SD card slot at the bottom. The keyboard of Envy X2 is quite similar to other Windows 8 laptop-tablet hybrid – standard full QWERTY design with touchpad. Such kind of design produces an overall terse feel for keyboard, though.

  • Top 5 worthy Android tablet alternatives of Apple iPad for enterprise and individual mobility

    Posted on April 20th, 2012 David Brooks | 28 comments

    Out of doubt, the Apple iPads have been top popular tablet among so many tablets in the existing electronic market. Especially since the new iPad comes out, which features the advanced Retina display to allow owners could even watch full HD Blu-ray movies on iPad with its 2048×1536 pixels HD screen resolution, the Apple iPads have attracted more eyes worldwide. The Apple iPads are certainly great buys for would-be mobile customers, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be replaced by other wonderful tablets, as every tablet would own their own advantages, either in screen display, processor, battery, camera, or price, an important element to help buyers make their decisions. In fact, there are a host of Android-based devices on store shelves right now that might just make Apple’s products far less appealing to both enterprise users and consumers.

    Apple iPadToday, I would like to share a top 5 list of Android tablets which could be worthy of alternatives of Apple iPad for enterprise and individual mobility. The following devices might not all be able to stand up against the Apple iPad. But for those who don’t want to succumb to the Apple craze, these devices might just be worthwhile alternatives of Apple iPad. Check through the following listed alternatives to find out about Android tablets that might be worthy alternatives to the iPad. You’ll find more choices to choose.

    Amazon Kindle Fire

    Amazon Kindle FireObviously, the Amazon Kindle Fire should be a choice for those who want an alternative to the new iPad. The device was claimed to be as a strong rival of Apple new iPad ever since its designing, not only in features, but in price as well. It comes with a 7-inch screen and just 8GB of storage, though, its access to Amazon services and the competitive $199 price tag makes it one worth considering.

    Acer Iconia Tab A500

    Acer Iconia Tab A500Check the specs of Acer Iconia Tab A500: Android Honeycomb, 10-inch capacitive LCD (1024 x 1280 pixel resolution), 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1GB RAM, 5 megapixel primary camera with autofocus and LED flash, secondary 2 megapixel camera for video calling, up to 8 hours battery life, microSD card support up to 32GB, 1080p HD video playback, HDMI port and Dolby Mobile surround sound.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

    Galaxy Tab 10.1The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is undoubtedly the best iPad alternative on the market right now. The device comes with a big, 10.1-inch screen and boasts 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) connectivity. Though not featuring the same resolution as Apple’s Retina display, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 still enables users to have quite excellent visual effect on its 1280 x 800 pixels screen display.

    Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet

    Nook Tablet Barnes NobleIf the Amazon Kindle Fire is a worthwhile purchase, the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet must be, as well. The Barnes & Noble NOOK Tablet is a 7-inch Android tablet with 7-inch touchscreen IPS display, Wi-Fi, 1GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Of course, another advantage of this tablet is also its price, which is the same as that of Kindle Fire.

    Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime

    Asus Eee Pad Transformer PrimeWhat’s not to like about the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime? On one hand, the device will allow customers to engage in typical tablet activities, but with the help of an additional physical keyboard, it can double as a notebook. That’s something Apple’s iPad and most other tablets just can’t do.
