CES Keynote: Microsoft Shows Off HP Slate [Update]

There have been multiple rumors that Microsoft would be revealing a tablet during Steve Ballmer’s keynote today at CES. Turns out those rumors were true. No, it’s not the Courier or anything that’s meant to compete with Apple’s purported tablet. HP is building the device but it won’t be available anytime soon. Lenovo is also showing …

First ARM-based Snapdragon Smartbook Is Lenovo’s Skylight

Out of Lenovo’s entire crop of CES laptop offerings, the Skylight might be the neatest of the bunch. Wait. Did I just say that about a netbook? I did! The ARM-based 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon smartbook features a 10.1-inch display, full keyboard, up to 10 hours of battery life, weighs less than 2 lbs. and has built-in Wi-Fi and 3G. …

Lenovo IdeaPad U1: Hybrid Netbook/Tablet

When other publications break embargo, the company whose product was prematurely announced should just release the info to everyone. That’s what a smart company would do, but not Lenovo. Case in point, the IdeaPad U1.

Here’s a rundown from Gizmodo about the $1000 hybrid multi-touch tablet and laptop, which ships in June.

“When …

What OS Will Apple’s Tablet Run? iTunes, Anyone?

So I’m in Seattle last week and I’m having a few drinks with an old co-worker from TechCrunch, Devin Coldewey, and we’re casually chit chatting about gadgets and tech. The conversation goes from 3D filmmaking since we’re talking about how cool Avatar is and then the subject of Apple’s tablet comes up. I steer the conversation …

What We’re Looking Forward To In 2010: Gadgets

In a little over a week I’ll be in Las Vegas for CES. It’s my hope – along with every other tech journo – that the annual trade show will serve as center stage for some groundbreaking announcement by a major (or minor) CE company. It’s doubtful, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I don’t expect Palm to make as big a splash as they did …

The World’s First $99 Laptop

A laptop for less than $100? No, Best Buy isn’t going out of business.

Cherrypal, the self-touted eco-friendly computer company – Cherrypal.com is powered by wind energy – just unveiled it’s newest and cheapest computer yet – the 7-in. Cherrypal Africa. Make no mistake, as far as computers go, this is no modern marvel. On …

Hands-on With the Fusion Garage Joojoo Tablet

Outside of Fusion Garage and TechCrunch, I’m probably the only other person to have an attachment to the Joojoo tablet. Towards the end of my time with TechCrunch, I tinkered with Prototype B during a random pit stop at the TC office in Palo Alto. The hardware design and the sort-of-working-but-not OS, which Fusion Garage claims to …

Netbooks Are Really Dumb, Or Maybe You Already Knew That

If you haven’t noticed already, Lev and I have been deeply entrenched in TIME’s annual end of the year Top 10 list hubbub. Not that I’m a veteran or anything seeing as how this is my first go-round. I’ve also been handling the tech packages that regularly run over at TIME.com that we lovingly place at the bottom of the TECHLAND …

Windows 7? I’m Not Through Hating Vista Yet!

There appears to be some kind of pan-industry collusion going on in the tech world, whereby nothing interesting can happen, ever. MacWorld was pretty ho-hum, and Ballmer’s keynote at CES last night was mighty drab as well. (A true technology journalist would have written that it “failed to excite.”) The only thing that stuck with me is …
