Apple Tablet Designs Surface (From 1983)

Apple Tablet Designs Surface (From 1983)
Back in the ’80s, Apple was already thinking about a tablet-like computer. These are the early prototypes that were created all the way back in 1983. This tablet was named Bashful, which seems kind of strange.

With Your Iphones Combined, I Am Apple Tablet

With Your Iphones Combined, I Am Apple Tablet
From Pocket-lint‘s secret Apple “sauce” comes a couple of stolen snapshots of the Apple Tablet. It has four screens, four home buttons, four 3.5-mm headphone jacks, four speakers, and an 8-in touchscreen. 8-inch overall anyway. The compartmentalized touchscreen will allow users to make and receive a total of four calls simultaneously, take Lomo-like pictures using the four cameras.

Boogie Board is the $30 Tablet

Boogie Board is the $30 Tablet
This isn’t really a tablet PC per se, but it aims at replacing paper pads efficiently with a special kind of rewriteable LCD display. The Boogie Board Paperless LCD Writing Tablet is made by Improv Electronics and uses something called Reflex LCD, which is a pressure-sensitive, flexible plastic LCD that doesn’t require any power to retain what’s written on it.

Toshiba Rx Medical Tablet Pc: the Clipboard Evolved

Toshiba Rx Medical Tablet Pc: the Clipboard Evolved
Seems like Lenovo has set a standard for the form of the computers of the near future with their Ideapad hybrid tablet. Toshiba has a similar and sensible concept for a medical computer: The Toshiba Rx replaces the traditional clipboard and medical sheet used in hospitals in favor of a touchscreen tablet: “Using state of the art medical software, nurses and doctors can document, diagnose, communicate and educate while bedside or on the go.” It’s an elegant improvement over traditional notetaking – a digital clipboard means less paper, less waste, and easier filing and archiving.

Chumby Sunfury Tablet Computer Platform in the Works

Chumby Sunfury Tablet Computer Platform in the Works
The guys who make the lovable, hackable Chumby have a little something new up their sleeves. Tucked away in an inconspicuous spot in the Marvell booth at the CES show, I managed to snag a spec-sheet for their upcoming tablet computer platform, currently code-named “Sunfury”.

Lenovo Ideapad U1 Hybrid: 2-2-2-in-1

Lenovo Ideapad U1 Hybrid: 2-2-2-in-1
And so the manna begins falling from gadget-heaven. Actually it started falling way before CES officially begins, what with “leaks” and unofficial launches all over the net. Lenovo officially couldn’t wait to show off their new product, so they didn’t bother with rumors or pseudo-leaks and officially announced the Lenovo Ideapad U1 Hybrid before the start of CES as well.

Freescale Designs $200 Tablet Pc

Freescale Designs $200 Tablet Pc
While everyone thought that the mythical price of the Crunchpad, which has become the JooJoo, would be impossible to achieve this year, it turns out that a reference design for a $200 tablet will be made available later this year by Freescale.

Notion Ink Adam: Throw Another Tablet on the Pile

Notion Ink Adam: Throw Another Tablet on the Pile
With all the brouhaha slowly dying down about the CrunchPad and the JooJoo, Notion Ink quietly slipped in some news about its upcoming tablet PC called the Adam. Notion Ink was spouting some complete nonsense last week about the Adam’s battery life.

New Olpc Xo-3 is a Thin Tablet That’S Pure Vaporware, or is It?

New Olpc Xo-3 is a Thin Tablet That’S Pure Vaporware, or is It?
This new OLPC looks quite amazing. It’s an ultra-thin tablet PC that’s supposed to be released in a few years. Is it pure vaporware? Even though the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project had a bunch of setbacks and price hikes, it doesn’t stop getting more ambitious.

Blump It Tablet Interface Tries to Outdo Joojoo

Blump It Tablet Interface Tries to Outdo Joojoo
With all the buzz about tablet PCs like the soon-to-be-maybe-released CrunchPad JooJoo and sure-to-be-possible-someday Apple tablet, it was only a matter of time before the market will fill up with a variety of tablets and interfaces vying for a piece of pie in the great tablet landgrab of 2010.

Stellarwindow Turns Tablet Pcs Into a Virtual Planetarium
This intriguing hardware/software combo from Japan’s Fairy Devices lets you turn a tablet PC into a veritable “window to the stars”. As you hold your PC up and move it around, the highly-sensitive motion-sensor USB module sends position data to the StellarWindow’s planetarium software, adjusting the viewport to match the angle of your screen.

Joojoo (Formerly Crunchpad) Specs, Price, Pre-Order Date

Joojoo (Formerly Crunchpad) Specs, Price, Pre-Order Date
After Michael Arrington’s TechCrunch and Fusion Garage parted ways on their much-anticipated CrunchPad collaboration, I figured the tablet would be dead. But the rumors of the demise of the tablet formerly known as CrunchPad appear to be greatly exaggerated.

The Crunchpad Project is Dead… or is It?

The Crunchpad Project is Dead… or is It?
Unless something awesome happens, this will be our first and last post about the CrunchPad, TechCrunch head Michael Arrington’s nearly-there web tablet. Yesterday, Arrington announced on TechCrunch that the project “self destructed over nothing more than greed, jealousy and miscommunication.” Goddammit.

Apple Tablet Pc Pics, Specs, Price and Release Date Speculation
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last month, tech geeks all around the world have been speculating salivating about the impending announcement of a Apple’s tablet computer, currently rumored to be called the iTablet (I’ve also heard it could be called the MacBook Touch or the iPAD).

Dream Tablet Mod Flattens Out the Dreamcast

Dream Tablet Mod Flattens Out the Dreamcast
Modder Ben Heckendorm’s forums are always packed with portable projects, but this one’s a little different. You’ve got to hook up a separate controller, but that’s hardly anything to complain about when we’re talking about a Sega Dreamcast shoved into the body of a tablet PC.

Duo: Turn Any Monitor to a Touchscreen

Duo: Turn Any Monitor to a Touchscreen
People who want or need a tablet or touch screen display don’t really have a lot of affordable options. For example, Wacom’s tablets are nice – Penny Arcade’s Gabe uses it – but they’re quite expensive.
