When I reported some weeks back that OLPC had a new device to announce at CES 2013, the XO Tablet wasn’t quite what I expected. You’ve probably read about this tablet already, but if you saw the same sources I did then I’d bet there are still unanswered questions. For example, it wasn’t clear until…

PlasticLogic may have overstated the involvement they had with the PaperTab flexible tablet, but they did have a couple interesting gadgets of their own to show off. In addition to the lighted PL screen we’ve seen before and a watch, there was also a dual screen ereader concept. It’s tied to a cable and can’t…

Yesterday I reported on a new use for PlasticLogic’s flexible screen tech and today I got a chance to see it in action. I think that it is a very cool research project which has almost no chance of reaching the market. When I read the press release yesterday I thought the PaperTab was developed by…

I’m just back from my visit to the Improv Electronics booth, and as always they have something fun to see. Today’s news is ostensibly about the 2 new Boogie Boards, the 4.5″ Jot and the 9.7″ Sync, but there were also a couple other neat concept designs on display. The image at right show the…

Huawei startled the gadget world a couple weeks back when they first unveiled the 6.1″ Ascend Mate. Aside from a few 7″ Android tablets equipped with phone functions, this is the smartphone with largest screen on or off the market. I got to play with it for a few minutes tonight. When I first saw…

I almost didn’t go CES this year because I didn’t think would be any new or really cool gadgets to write about, but now that PlasticLogic Intel has proven me wrong I’m glad I’m here. A new partnership has been announced between PlasticLogic, Intel, and Queen University’s Human Media Lab. This Ontario based university has…

I don’t know about anyone else but Nvidia stunned me last night with the launch of their latest system-on-a-chip, the Tegra 4 CPU, at their CES 2013 press event. (I had missed the news about the Tegra 4 leaks.) Rather than add more features and cores in yet another upgrade to the 14 month old…

I’m back in my hotel room from my first partial day in LV, and I thought I’d take a moment to tell everyone I’m in Las Vegas again (it slipped my mind). This is my 4th CES. I’m back now from the opening night event, CES Unveiled. There was not much to report on in…
