RIM was hoping to start selling the BlackBerry Playbook in the first quarter of the year, but it appears that they aren’t going to make it. According to sources close to the Canadian company the tablet will become available on around 10th of April.
Apparently the QNX platform isn’t completely ready yet and it will only turn Gold master on 31st of March. Read more »
One of the key improvements the Apple iPad 2 brings over its predecessor is the new Apple A5 chipset with dual-core CPU. Traditionally, the company saved us the details and didn’t say a word about what’s inside the home-brewed architecture, but here’s what we deduced it to contain.

Apple iPad 2 has just been announced and Apple rushed out to post a video overview of the device. The iPad 2 features the same 9.7-inch 1024x768px capacitive touchscreen display as the original iPad, but it’s more powerful with the all-new dual-core A5 chip, which includes up to 9x faster graphics chip.
I can continue to go about the iPad 2′s re-design and features, but Apple has tried pretty hard to make this 6-minute-plus video, so here it is. Read more »
The new iPad Smart Cover is a rather ingenious accessory, morphing its way depending on the situation you use it in. It’s light and flexible and it snaps magnetically to the iPad surface.

In an exciting keynote led by Steve Jobs himself, the Apple iPad 2 was announced at the special event in San Francisco minutes ago. Noticeably thinner than the first iPad, it packs some serious power under the hood. Here’s all there is to know about the iPad 2 in a heartbeat.

Everyone is impatiently waiting for the Apple iPad 2 announcement taking place today in less than half an hour. As you can imagine the rumors and pre-event allegations are pouring out from known and unknown sources.
Such a rumor is that we shouldn’t be so excited about the iPad 2, because it’s more of a ‘ho-hum update’ rather than something fundamental, which is what the iPad 3 Read more »
The official iPad 2 announcement is drawing close (6PM London time) but that’s not stopping last-minute leaks. We already eyed up the supposed leaked photos of the second-generation iPad and now apparently Amazon Germany jumped the gun and (accidentally!) put their iPad 2 listing out in the open.

That simple slip up gives up a lot of details on the upcoming Apple tablet – same screen size, but faster CPU and a Thunderbolt port for example… Read more »
We’ve found a leak of the upcoming iPad 2 in China, of all places. Mind you, no specs are released, just some photos of the device. They look sort off legitimate, but it could still be just a mockup, to throw people off, before Apples’ launch event in San Francisco later today.

It’s no secret that Samsung wants a big chunk of the tablet market. The Koreans were the first major manufacturer to release a 7” Android tablet last summer and a 10.1” slate joined it a couple of weeks ago. Now the Koreans are preparing to launch another Galaxy Tab, which should fit somewhere in between.
The teaser poster published on the Samsung Facebook page (pictured above) asks “What’s your Tab life?” and contains the numbers 7, 8, 9 and 10. With 7” and 10” devices already covered we suspect we are going to see either an 8” or a 9” Galaxy Tab announced on 22nd of March. Read more »
The Motorola XOOM packs some serious punch under the hood and there’s hardly an Android application that would require more. However this doesn’t stop the hacking community to try and squeeze every last drop of performance out of dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU (you know, just in case).
We just got news that an XDA-developers forum member has successfully managed to increase the clock speed to 1.5 GHz with a few kernel modifications. And it’s not the see-what-I-have-here kind of deal – you can follow a short tutorial and get the extra power on your very own XOOM. Read more »
