Review: Original Kindle Fire

The Kindle Fire marks the entry of Amazon into the competitive tablet market. This is a fairly unique move as Amazon are not strictly a technology hardware company, although in the last few years they have been branching into this realm with their e-reader product line. The Kindle Fire is a small tablet in the same category as the Google Nexus 7, but differs by way of its price and content services. The question is, does Amazon’s tablet compete effectively with market veterans? Read on to find out. Key Specs For The Kindle Fire RRP: $199 Release Year: 2012 Operating System: Android 2.3 Display Size: 7 inches Connectivity: Wi-Fi / Wi-Fi+ 3G Cameras: n/a Battery Life: 7.5 hours Kindle Fire: The Pros Speed: The Kindle Fire is one of the faster tablets on the market. Since the upgraded version was released in 2012 this has only become more true. With the Kindle Fire, you’ll find yourself opening up apps and zooming around the menu system without a moment’s pause. That’s great ne...

 


Review: ASUS Google Nexus 7 Tablet

Google first teamed up with Asus in order to create a laptop computer line. The next logical step from there was obviously tablets, and Google now have their very own line of tablet products, manufactured by Asus, to complement their laptop range. The Google Nexus 7 isn’t designed to compete with the big boys like the iPad 3 and Asus’ own device, the Transformer Prime. Instead, it slots in alongside other mini-tablets like the Kindle Fire and the small Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 edition. So how does it fare against these? Let’s take a look. Key Specs For The Google Nexus 7 RRP: $254 Release Year: 2012 Operating System: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Display Size: 7 inches Connectivity: Wi-Fi Cameras: 8 hours Battery Life: 1.2 MP Google Nexus 7: The Pros Speed: The Google Nexus 7 is nothing if not fast. You’ll notice this in all aspects of performance, from start-up time to app loading times, and menu navigation too. Everything runs smoothly and seamlessly, and it’s clear t...

 


Review: Kindle Fire

Although the original Kindle Fire is still under a year old, the new Kindle Fire has already arrived. Amazon have tried to improve on the original in all the obvious ways, and are making this new version of the Kindle Fire the bottom end of their new Kindle Fire product range (at a very affordable price). With that in mind, let’s take a look at the new Kindle Fire and find out whether it really does improve on the older model. Key Specs For The New Kindle Fire RRP: $159 Release Year: 2012 Operating System: Android Display Size: 7 inches Connectivity: Wi-Fi Cameras: n/a Battery Life: 8.5 hours Kindle Fire: The Pros Speed: The most obvious improvement over the original Kindle Fire when using the new version is in the speed. Although the processor on this device still isn’t quad-core and so can’t match the Google Nexus 7, it’s a good bit faster than the original Kindle Fire’s processor was. On top of this, the new Kindle Fire has double the amount of memory compared to th...

 


Review: ASUS Transformer Prime TF201-B1-GR Eee Pad 10.1-Inch Tablet

The Asus Transformer Prime was one of the earliest tablets to offer quad-core technology, which easily set it apart from its competitors. As with all technology, however, rivals were quick to catch up, meaning that the Asus Transformer Prime has to have something else special if it's going to stand out from the crowd. Let’s find out whether the Transformer Prime really is the stand out product that it claims to be, and see if it’s worth buying. Key Specs For The ASUS Transformer Prime RRP: $499-$644 Release Year: 2011 Operating System: Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS Display Size: 10.1 inches Connectivity: Wi-Fi/ Bluetooth Cameras: 8 MP, 1.2 MP Battery Life: 12 hours ASUS Transformer Prime: The Pros Speed: Perhaps the most basic and obvious feature of the Transformer Prime is its speed. It was the first tablet on the market to offer a quad-core processor which not only improves the speed of the unit but also makes it better at multi-tasking. Even though there are now several rival tablets availabl...

 


Review: Samsung Galaxy Note

Samsung has really tried hard to conquer the tablet market, doing everything it can to rival or outdo the iPad. While the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and more recently the Galaxy Tab 2 have been the flagship contenders for Samsung, a somewhat overlooked tablet also offered by Samsung is the Galaxy Note. It’s a superior device to the Galaxy Tab 2 in nearly all ways, and looks like much more of a challenge to Apple’s dominance. So let’s see whether it’s a worthwhile purchase. Key Specs For The Samsung Galaxy Note RRP: $499-$549 Release Year: 2012 Operating System: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Display Size: 10.1 inches Connectivity: Wi-Fi + Bluetooth Cameras: 8 MP, 1.9 MP Battery Life: 10 hours Samsung Galaxy Note: The Pros Fast: The first point to make about the Galaxy Note is that it’s fast. Not quite as fast as the iPad 3 sure, but not far behind. You’re unlikely to notice the difference. So whether you’re a gamer or just a casual user, you’ll find things...

 


Review: Sony Tablet S

Sony, the long-time stalwart of high-end technology devices, have their own tablet aimed at competing with other top-level tablets from Samsung, Asus, Toshiba and Apple. The SGPT111US/S, otherwise known as the “Tablet S”, offers typical Sony stylishness, but does it stand up to the competition in practical terms? Let’s have a look. Key Specs For The Sony Tablet S RRP: $399 Release Year: 2011 Operating System: Android Honeycomb Display Size: 9.4 inches Connectivity: Wi-Fi + Bluetooth Cameras: 5 MP, 0.3 MP Battery Life: 6 hours Sony Tablet S: The Pros Screen: The screen on the Sony Tablet S offers a different aspect ratio to other tablets on the market. Whereas most tablets, including the iPad 3, are set to 4:3 aspect ratio, the Tablet S uses a 16:9 aspect ratio. This is the ratio used for widescreen movies, which makes this device much better suited to movie viewing than its rivals. The 16:9 ratio also feels preferable for reading books, as it more closely replicates the shape of the typ...

 


Review: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2

After the original iPad was released, Samsung was one of the first companies to come out with a competitor. The Samsung Galaxy Tablet competed head to head with the iPad 2 in the second wave of tablet devices, comparing favorably. So how does the Galaxy Tab 2 compare with other tablets in the newest wave of tablet releases? Let’s have a closer look. Key Specs For The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 RRP: $249.99 - $399.99 Release Year: 2012 Operating System: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Display Size: 7 inches/ 10.1 inches Connectivity: Wi-Fi / Bluetooth Cameras: 5 MP/ 8 MP Battery Life: 7 hours/ 10 hours Samsung Galaxy Tab 2: The Pros Speed: One of the strongest features of the Galaxy Tab 2 is its speed. Even though the processor isn’t a powerhouse like that found in the iPad 3 or Asus Transformer Prime, it still handles itself well, offering a great user experience that doesn’t suffer from lag. It may not be quite up to the high standards of the aforementioned tablet superstars, but then itâ...

 


Review: Coby Kyros 10.1 Tablet

The Coby Kyros is a budget tablet that doesn’t try to rival the big players. Instead it offers a decent range of features that try to tackle other low-end tablets like the Kindle Fire and Google Nexus 7. Coby are a well-established, though not widely known, technology company who have been in the business for over a decade and have plenty of experience. So can they deliver? Let’s find out. Key Specs For The Coby Kyros RRP: $289.99 Release Year: 2012 Operating System: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Display Size: 10.1 inches Connectivity: Wi-Fi Cameras: VGA 1.0MP Battery Life: 7 hours Coby Kyros: The Pros Several Size Options: One of the most unique things about the Coby Kyros is that it comes in several size options. This is in contrast to most other devices which tend to come in a maximum of two size options, and emphasize storage options instead. However, the Coby Kyros doesn’t offer any storage options, instead putting the exact same technology into 5 different sized tablets. The ...
