Have you checked out HP’s all new Slate tablet device? The videos hit the web recently and I made a note to sit down and document my utter dismay. The ‘Slate 500’ is 8.9″ and it runs Windows 7. Let me just stop there. Oh dear. Dear me, dear me. That automatically means it will […]

Sell me your Nokia N810 tablet

I thought I’d put some money into the Mobile Industry Review economy, rather than into eBay’s pocket — by asking if any of you, anywhere, have a used (or new) Nokia N810 tablet hanging about that I can buy from you. I’ll be flashing it to hell so I’d rather not borrow it in case […]
