    Microsoft talking with HTC, Huawei and Samsung about Windows Phone on Android?

    While initially Microsoft was rumoured to have approached HTC about loading Windows Phone on Android, it appears that HTC wasn't the only one Microsoft talked to. According to reports, Microsoft have also approached Samsung and Huawei with Windows Phone OS for smartphones and Windows RT for tablet for free as an incentive. They have also supposedly added on compensation for the required adaptation costs. While none of the above parties have really confirmed anything, a rumoured 12.1-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab which can dual-boot between Windows RT and Android is supposedly on the way. Tech specs for this device include very high pixel resolutions, a super thin plastic chassis made to look like metal (probably a chrome finish) and is supposedly very fast. Most of this info comes from Russion blogger Eldar Murtazin, who has mostly been accurate when it comes to Nokia - Microsoft related rumours. However, he was wrong about Tizen so take this rumour again with a pinch of salt. No Malaysia release dates or pricing just yet though.

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v Review

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v Review

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is known as Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. This is the successor to the most popular Android tablet yet – the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 - Design & Build:

    The Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 is thin. Like really thin… at least in comparison to the other Android 3.X tablets out there. And yes, according to Samsung’s measurements it’s even thinner than the iPad 2. However, as you may have guessed, the difference isn’t noticeable to the naked eye, and if you didn’t have a measuring tape on you, you’d probably never know one was trimmer than the other. Where you will notice the difference between the two is on weight. The 1.24-pound Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 feels lighter in hand than the 1.33-pound iPad. The only ports you will find on this tablet are 3.5mm headphone and proprietary charging jacks. There is a volume rocker and a power button, but forget that microSD card slot or micro-USB port.

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Review

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Review

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 has an 8.9in capacitive touchscreen but it's the physical design of this latest Android tablet that is quite impressive — the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 is described by Samsung as "the world's thinnest mobile tablet" as it measures just 8.6 millimetres thick.  

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 - Design & Build:

    In addition to its svelte body, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 weighs just 470 grams, making it both thinner and lighter than the iPad 2. Samsung says the Galaxy Tab 8.9's ultra-thin form factor and lightweight design are ideal for business users who frequently travel.

  • HTC Flyer Review

    HTC Flyer Review

    HTC has taken a different approach to its first tablet. Like the Blackberry Playbook, the screen is seven inches, this instantly makes it a far more portable option and at just 122 mm wide, it can easily fit into a pocket. This form factor also enables you to hold it comfortably using one hand.

    Construction follows the same unibody design as HTC’s handset range, but this time with white accents. HTC uses a proprietary port in the base for charging and unlike Honeycomb tablets it charges over USB.

    HTC Flyer - Android:

    When HTC announced that the Flyer would be running Android 2.3.3, we were surprised – surely it makes sense to run the latest tablet optimised version of Google’s UI? So although it looks like a big smartphone, it doesn’t feel like a smartphone to use - unlike the first Samsung Galaxy Tab.

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab runs Android 2.2 and is clearly fashioned to be an iPad rival but in a smaller form factor. Measuring 190 x 120 x 12mm, compared to the Apple tablet’s 243 x 190 x 13mm dimensions, it’s about three quarters the size of an iPad. But the obvious trade-off is the 7in screen compared to 10in from Apple.

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Malaysia Review

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Malaysia Review

    Samsung is back with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, a tablet that brings the portability of a smaller slate, with a proper, grown-up operating system.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7: Design & Build

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is one of the slimmest things we've ever seen. Turning it sideways you'd be forgiven for thinking it had disappeared into the space between atoms -- it measures an iPad 2-beating 7.9mm across. It's astonishingly light too, at 335g, so if you throw it in a rucksack or handbag and you'll quickly forget it's there. There's not much more to say about the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7's design -- it's a slim, chic and eerily light rectangle.

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Review - Strictly Samsung Budget Tablet

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Review - Strictly Samsung Budget Tablet

    When it first came out in 2012 the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 seemed more like a budget version compared to the tablets that came after the first Samsung Galaxy Tab. Today, it probably fits the entry-level to mid-range gap just as well as when it was first introduced, but with so many other budget tablet contenders, is it right for your needs and pocket? Read on and find out.
