tab10.1

Personally, I think the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the best tablet on the market now. It’s thinner AND lighter than an iPad 2, can be overclocked to 1.4Ghz dual-core, and even run Ubuntu!

So, is Apple getting desperate?

I think so, they are

HTC Launches OpenSense Open Source SDK!

opensense-sdk

One of the things I like about HTC is that they are going to open source all of their HTC Android smartphones and tablets. Which is great for people who are trying to install new ROMs, unlock their phones, etc…etc…

Finally, HTC launches OpenSense SDK, which is basically a development environment for their HTC devices. The new site also hints at “Unlock Bootloader” feature, which will be coming soon and phones that have been locked as of recently like the HTC Evo 4G, will benefit greatly from users being able to root their phones again.

Galaxy Tab 8.9 Previewed!

galaxy-tab-8.9

Lucky attenders of BlogHer got to see hands-on preview of the latest Galaxy Tab 8.9, which is the evil 8.9-inch brother of the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

As a user of Galaxy Tab 10.1 for about the last month or so, I would have to say it’s the best Android tablet you can get right now if all you are worried is couch-browsing on a super-sleek device that’s lighter/slimmer than iPad 2. Of course, typing on a 10.1-inch screen is rather cumbersome, I would rather have a 8.9-inch tablet device but 7-inch seems too small.

See a short preview video by folks at Tecca:

dslr-controller-app

I’ve been actually looking for something like this, a Live View camera that can be tethered to my Canon 7D DSLR camera so I can have better control while I take 1080P videos I upload to YouTube.

It’s an Android app called DSLR Controller that turns any Android device (including Android smartphone/tablet) into a Live View cam.

Why a need for such things?

First of all, when you are taking a video with a Canon 7D, there’s no way to tell if your

ASUS EeePad Transformer Android Tablet Review!

eeepad-transformer-review-17

Finally, I’ve got hands on the ASUS EeePad Transformer Android tablet, mainly because I wanted a device that would replace my old EeePC netbook plus the ability to use it as a tablet device when the keyboard is not needed. For business users, the Transformer makes perfect sense as it can completely replace your old netbook and also let you have a tablet device in hand.

Another great part about the Transformer is that there’s a big development community going on now, there’s already many ROMs you can try out, nevermind the ability to add fully-native
