Google TV is Coming Soon!

Posted by: | Comments (0)
Google is currently putting the finishing touches on Google TV, its android-based software that is set to be unveiled at next month’s Google I/O conference.

The Wall Street Journal’s Jessica E. Vascellaro and Don Clark said “Google is currently planning on sharing some details about the technology with more than 3,000 developers expected to attend its Google I/O conference in San Francisco May 19 and 20.”

And this software has got quite a bit of other big companies very excited. Sony and Intel have already been working with Google on this new software, but now Samsung and Logitech are keen to jump on board too.

Google is apparently keen to iron out all the creases of the final product and launch at the I/O conference, so that the 3000+ developers that are expected at the conference, can help them build applications for the platform.

Google TV is designed to bring Internet-style content, including web search, applications and video entertainment to your living room. The next step would be for the Google TV software to be embedded in the new generation of internet-ready TVs, game consoles, set-top boxes, and Blu-ray players.

The Death of Microsoft Tablets?

Posted by: | Comments (0)
After recently learning of the demise of Hewlett Packard’s Slate tablet due to issues with Windows 7, Microsoft has now confirmed that production of the Courier tablet has also been killed.

“At any given time, across any of our business groups, there are new ideas being investigated, tested, and incubated. It’s in Microsoft’s DNA to continually develop and incubate new technologies to foster productivity and creativity,” said Frank Shaw, corporate vice president of communications at Microsoft.  “The ‘Courier’ project is an example of this type of effort and its technologies will be evaluated for use in future Microsoft offerings.”

Expected late this year, Courier was built in the shape of a book with two 7-inch screens, a built-in camera and Wi-Fi. The device also was said to support a variety of user inputs such as touching, handwriting and drawing.

Although this set back may end up benefiting Microsoft and Windows OS tablets in the long run, for now it seems that Microsoft is dead before ever entering the tablet wars.

Sources have recently announced that Hewlett-Packard has killed off Slate, the much anticipated Windows 7 tablet computer.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer first reveiled the new tablet in January at CES 2010. The product was expected to hit the market in the summer 2010. Now sources are saying that Hewlett-Packard is not happy with the Windows 7 operating system and has  recently killed the project.

Another thing to mention is that HP may be moving away from using Intel hardware for its tablets because of its high power consumption. This would also be reason for eliminating Windows 7 as an operating system.

It seems the only other option for HP’s operating system would be Google, but who knows?

iPad Knockoffs Have Arrived

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Since Apple has yet to make the iPads available overseas, its not surprising to find that Chinese knockoffs are already being produced.

We have learned that these new tablets are going for $410 and feature Windows OS along with three, count ’em, three USb ports. The device is being sold in its first rough version and looks almost identical to the iPad.

Yeah we know, nothing unexpected here. But if you can’t afford the real thing, you can always count on China to produce to the next best thing: a crappy knock off!
