Samsung Galaxy Tab S goes to the street, compared with iPad Air

Posted by wicked August - 30 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

Samsung released a video yesterday that took its premier tablet – the Samsung Galaxy Tab S – to the streets of New York and asked seemingly random people to compare it with Apple’s current gen iPad Air. We say “seemingly” because, all things aside, it’s still a Samsung-produced video. Then again, we’ll give them half the benefit of doubt.

When the Samsung Galaxy Tab S launched, the South Korean gadget giant hyped a lot on the tablet’s fab looks – it’s sexy thin to ridiculous proportions. And it has a vibrant display, which it claimed was better than what most high-end tablets out in the market had. Now it was a matter of taking the Galaxy Tab S and have the people of New York compare it with Apple’s premium tablet.

It’s a marketing video, for all it worth. And of course, they showed the people who gave their tablet glowing reviews. But a couple of things are factual, though – the Galaxy Tab S is visible thinner than the iPad Air. More than that, it is comparably lighter, and this is a real-world variable that people consider from using tablet devices. Lastly, out in the New York sunshine, the Galaxy Tab S showed a better display – most likely by virtue of its higher pixel count.


Overheating rumors aside, we can grant that most people would probably choose the Galaxy Tab S if on looks and display alone. When seen beside the iPad Air, the Galaxy Tab S looks undeniably fab – razor thin and that much lighter. Actual usage would take into consideration apps, processor performance, operating system and all that – that is when you can really say which the better tablet is. But for now, let’s allow Samsung this – they made a good looking tablet, that’s for sure.

The Buzz: King Jim massaging stylus pen

Posted by Tom August - 28 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

New in Japan is the King Jim massaging stylus pen: a three-in-one pen that lets users write on paper, draw on tablets and smartphones and, new to styli, enjoy a massage.

The massage function kicks in when the tip is pressed, so regular use will be akin to playing a vigorous PlayStation game with a DualShock controller.

But there are other applications – a number of every day products have a secondary “massaging” quality, so maybe this can join the fun-club.

It’s out now at 1,500 yen (US $14)

Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and Xperia Z3 teased again

Posted by wicked August - 28 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Sony is set to toss some new gear out at IFA 2014 when it kicks off early next month. The new gear that it is teasing for launch at the show includes the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and Xperia Z3. The Z3 Tablet Compact was teased with an image hidden away on the Sony mobile website, but it’s only a single image with the tablet taken from the side showing a thin profile. This is the same tablet that has had specs leak in the past.

You may still be able to see the image, which is in this story above, on the Sony Mobile website right now if you sort by Features > Display and look for “Xperia Z3 Tablet compact.” All we know about that tablet right now is that the screen uses IPS technology and has improved viewing angles.

You can also tell from the image that the tablet is very thin. We expect to hear the full details at IFA next month. The second device teased is the Sony Xperia Z3 and it has its own teaser video. Other than the Xperia Z3, a quick flash of an image at 41secs in the video is hinting that there will be another smartphone to be announced together.


The teaser video offers no details at all about the smartphones or tablet. A date of September 3, 2014 is in the video and it has a tagline that says, “The Time to Demand Great is coming,” and has a hashtag #XperiaDetails included. Like the other tablet, we only have a few days to wait to hear more.
