sl10frontscreen-copy

The hardware design is pretty much par for the course when it comes to tablets, but you’ll notice that the 2goPad SL10 (they really ought to come up with a better name) is packing a full build of Windows 7 under the hood. The rest of the specs sound like a decently-powered netbook with an Atom N450 processor, 2GB of RAM, 250GB HDD, and a front-facing VGA camera.

A new $139 Kindle to kill the iPad?

asdf

Apple’s iPad was always expected to be the Kindle Killer, but never really disrupted the Amazon’s sales of its eReading tablet. In fact Amazon sells more Kindle books than they do hardcovers, and expect that number to “surpass all paperbacks sold sometime in the next nine to twelve months” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com Founder & CEO. Kindle sales tripled in June when Amazon lowered the price to $189, we can only imagine what will happen now that the price has been reduced to $139 by simply dropping 3G and giving a Wi-Fi only version.

Augen GENTOUCH 7-inch Android Tablet will sell for $149 at Kmart

The name Augen doesn’t ring any bells, although it does sound like something a player would scream out loud in a Street Fighter II match. The company is based in Hollywood, Florida, and has products ranging from eReaders, Netbooks, to Internet Tablet PC’s. Their latest incarnations that peaked my interest are the 7-inch Android tablet “GENTOUCH”, and 7-inch e-Reader “TheBook”.

Review: Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300 mobile scanner

fujitsu-scansnap-s1300-001

With a small but steadily growing population of the computing force being Mac users, it’s nice to see Fujitsu thinking of us by offering a serious mobile scanning hardware solution. The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300 is just under $300, and will appeal not only by Mac users, but any mobile professional serious about document processing.

The S1300 is silver and gray. It folds down nicely in to a compact 11.18 x 3.90 x 3.03 inches and weighs in at 3.08 lbs. It’s a little bit thick at 3.03-inches, but will fit in to larger laptop bags, perhaps even a large briefcase. I think it could have been a bit thinner, but Fujitsu did a good job of keeping it looking sleek.

Apple iPad review: The future is in your hands

Apple’s mysterious new “magical” device has created a big stir across the world. What are we supposed to do with this thing? Is it going to replace my desktop? Probably not. How about my laptop or netbook? Still no. So what is it good for? Well, that’s the magic of it. It does many things, but it’s not here to step on anyone’s toes.

The name iPad is strangely clever. It probably took Apple an entire 5 minutes to come up with the name. It’s clearly not a notebook computer, and we already have the iBook. How about that other relative, the notepad. Ideas went around, and voila – Apple’s latest thing is the iPad. Names aside, what the heck is this thing good for anyways? What am I supposed to do with this iPad?
