    Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition review

    By 30 January 2012

    Many, including Motorola, followed the iPad's about-10-inch route with the launch of their first tablet, but there's a lot to be said for a more compact format as seen here with the 8.2-inch Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition. But with challengers in this...

    Fujitsu Arrows waterproof honeycomb tablet pictures and hands-on

    By 9 January 2012

    How often do you worry about dropping your Android tablet in the bath, or if your mega rich, in the pool? If the answer is every waking second then you'll probably want to sit up and pay attention for the next couple of hundred words. Although not available...

    Asus Transformer Prime review

    By 16 December 2011

    The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime isn’t a robot in disguise, but it does have a few tricks up its sleeve that any Autobot or Decepticon would be proud of. This new Transformer improves upon the original version from earlier this year, adds more power...

    Archos 101 G9 review

    By 17 November 2011

    Archos were making "tablets" before the majority of manufacturers had even considered it. It had large screen devices before the birth of the iPad and before Android even existed. Of course they were called portable media players in those days, and it...

    Asus Eee Pad Slider review

    By 26 October 2011

    It’s not much of an exaggeration to say that the Asus Eee Pad Transformer is one of our favourite Android tablets of all time. In fact, it’s pretty reasonable to argue that the Transformer is the best Android tablet on the market. The optional keyboard...

    Sony Tablet S review

    By 18 October 2011

    Sony is a comparatively late entrant into the Android tablet fray, bringing forth two tablets of very different character. The Tablet S is the rather more conventional of the pair, but Sony does at least manage to differentiate. Is there a place for the...

    Acer Iconia A100 review

    By 20 September 2011

    Steve Jobs doesn't like 7-inch tablets. Hardly surprising, given that Apple only has one tablet, and it's not 7-inches. But Pocket-lint likes all tablets, especially ones that give the people what they want: choice. The Iconia A100 is Acer's most recent...

    HTC Jetstream pictures and hands-on

    By 14 September 2011

    When it comes to tablets, HTC has two. A 7-inch Gingerbread powered HTC Flyer, and the new 10-inch Honeycomb powered HTC Jetstream just announced in the US on AT&T. Keen to see how Honeycomb works on the new 10-inch model and what it looks like in the...

    Lenovo IdeaPad K1 pictures and hands-on

    By 7 September 2011

    Lenovo surprised us with the IdeaPad U300s, its Ultrabook that guns firmly at consumers. But we were also pleasantly surprised by the IdeaPad K1, its take on the Honeycomb tablet. It's been doing the rounds for the last few months and we managed to catch...

    Sony Tablet S pictures and hands-on

    By 31 August 2011

    They may be arriving at the Honeycomb tablet game a little late, but you can never underestimate a company like Sony. Howard Stringer, Sony president and CEO, took to the stage at IFA 2011 to kick off a run of new product launches saying that it’s “not...

    Acer Iconia A100 pictures and hands-on

    By 24 August 2011

    It feels like it's taken a long time for 7-inch Honeycomb devices to show up. And then, as always, several turn up at once. The Acer Iconia A100 is the most recent and offers many of the usual features. Ours is a Wi-Fi only model, with 8GB of built-in...

    ViewSonic ViewPad 7x review

    By 23 August 2011

    ViewSonic said they would touchdown early with a 7-inch tablet and here we have it. The ViewSonic ViewPad 7x joins a market that already seems saturated. But has the age of the 10-inch tablet passed? At 7-inches we pass into new territory, a type of device...

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 review

    By 30 June 2011

    With the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, the size and form factor of tablets are finally set in stone. A year ago, tablets could have gone anywhere - they could have become neat and compact like the BlackBerry PlayBook and the first Samsung Tab,...
