I’ve featured devices which let you digitize the images and text you write on paper before, but this new gadget from the master of drawing tablets, Wacom, decidedly improves upon the concept, capturing up to 1024 levels of pressure from drawings done on paper.
HP might have had to have a fire sale to dump their now-discontinued WebOS TouchPad tablets, but Marvel Digital’s Mercury Pad Tablet is running Android, so you’ll be safe with it. As tablets go, the Mercury has solid specs, but is still more expensive that the discount-priced $99 TouchPad (if you can still find one).
Information about this tablet was originally released back in January during CES, but I haven’t heard much about it until this week. It’s set to launch in September with two different models. Do you think it make sense to have an integrated keyboard on your tablet?
If you have your eyes on a new Android tablet, but you don’t want to spend big money the new Vizio tablet should be on your list to check out. The tablet has a nice size 8-inch 1024×768 screen and a lot more at a price under $300.
In many ways, you might think that convertible laptops are a thing of the past, but there’s just something about such a multi-purpose device that makes sense for some business applications. The Dell Latitute XT3 features a swivel-screen and an integrated keyboard, so you won’t need to buy an extra one if you want to get some work done.

Dozens of proud parents and relatives have uploaded videos of their babies using an iPad, so we know that their little brains can handle Apple’s tablet.

I have to say that designboom’s recent competition to inspire new laptop and tablet devices for Fujitsu [JP] has included some pretty cool concepts. The latest to surface is this hybrid tablet that would have a compact fold-out keyboard that could work in either orientation.
Anyone that owns a gadget of any sort wants the thing to have the longest battery life possible. Batteries that can pack in more energy is the way many of us expect tech to evolve.

This weekend, ASUS unveiled the Padfone, a smartphone-tablet hybrid, during this year’s Computex. This new hybrid device will allow users to easily keep data and apps in sync between their mobile devices and switching between then when the need arises.
I get that widescreen tablets might work for some people, but ultimately, their proportions make them harder to do anything but watch movies on them.
