    By 1 September 2011

    Okay, first a confession. The Toshiba bods wouldn't let us play on the newly announced Toshiba Portege Z830 Ultrabook. Heck they wouldn't even let us go past the Windows log-in screen. But they did let us touch it. And we went "ooh" and "aah" as we held,...

    Over in Berlin at IFA, Toshiba has been walking round with its chest fully pumped out, telling anyone who'll listen that it's got the skinniest tab in town with the Toshiba AT200. Samsung may have come along all guns blazing with its Galaxy Tab 7.7 measuring...

    By 1 September 2011

    It's hard to know exactly how to describe the Samsung Galaxy Note. It's not a smartphone, it's not a tablet, in fact, it's probably more like a media player, but boy does it do much much more. For starters, it has a meaty 5.3-inch screen - a Super AMOLED...

    You might scratch your head at the name of the Slate PC Series 7, but we can see the logic, even if it ends up being a bit of a mouthful. The idea is to separate this "slate PC" from Samsung’s existing line of Galaxy Tabs. In reality, yes, this is a...

    While the Tablet S sports a "folded magazine" design, the clamshell design of the Tablet P is likely to be more controversial. The fact that the Tablet P comes equipped with 3G as standard and not an option is a clear indicator of exactly where Sony sees...
