ASUS Transformer Pad TF103C: Australian Review

Convertible tablets, by and large, are more expensive than they should be. There’s a gap in the market for a simple, cheap tablet that includes a keyboard dock. The ASUS Transformer Pad series uses the company’s well-tailored ZenUI Android skin, and is priced to compete with other entry-level Android tablets and Windows convertibles.


HP Omni 10 Tablet: Australian Review

Windows on a tablet. Does it work? After years of the iPad and of some excellent Androids, it’s difficult to accept that Windows — software made for proper laptops and desktops — actually works (mostly) on a small, light, portable handheld touchscreen. It’s not perfect, but there’s not too much to complain about with HP’s new Omni 10 tablet.


Did Telstra Text You About Electromagnetic Radiation? Don't Worry, You're Safe

The Best Tablet Display Isn't On An iPad

Up until now tablets have been almost exclusively LCD-based — so while the Samsung Galaxy series of Smartphones are Flagship models for Samsung to show off its latest and greatest OLED displays and display technology, there haven’t been any OLED tablets until now (except for a single 7.7 inch OLED model launched in 2012).

Samsung Galaxy Tab S Review: Good Lord, That Display

Samsung’s tablet approach the last few years has been to toss every conceivable size into the stores to see if anything takes. They tended to all look they same, perform the same (not great), and vary by just an inch or two here and there. The Galaxy Tab S is different though. It grabs you by the eyeballs and won’t let go.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S: Australian Hands-On

Samsung has a lot of tablets. Like, a lot. Some are for reading, some for writing, others are just for kids, but there isn’t a Samsung tablet that looks, feels like a next-gen, flagship, premium device. That is, until now. This is the Galaxy Tab S: Samsung’s new pride and joy.
