HTC Flyer – A Tablet for Gaming

HTC, the no-name Taiwanese company, rocketeered to smartphone superstardom in 2008 with the Google Android powered T-Mobile G1. Rising out of the Orient, they were the first, arguably, to define a smartphone challenge along with Motorola to answer the Apple iPhone. Now it seems that they are set to do the same in the Tablet space, which up to January 2011, analyst IDC declared the Apple iPad as the sole Tablet at 87% strong in the worldwide market and only whisperings of opposition. The makers of the block traffic HTC Droid Incredible on Verizon and the first WiMax 4G Mobile (IEEE 802.11n) smartphone, the HTC Evo 4G on Sprint’s Network, both of which have the distinction of being showstoppers in 2010. Why? Because these smartphones not only had bigger 4” AMOLED screens, meatier 1 G...

HP and the TouchPad – Release the WebOS and the Developers will Smile

HP is now in everyone’s sights, showing up on my radar, as WebOS is now official news since their launch on Wednesday February 9th 2011 in San Francisco, California. As usual, a bit of a background where HP and Tablets are concerned! After all, unlike the other entrants to the Tablet market, they are famous for their extremely reliable printers, STILL their core business; thus the HP Slate 500 would classify as an experiment! HP may have stopped and got a hold of their faculties since the successful HP Slate 500 experiment, as it now appears that the promise of a WebOS based Tablet, heard of but yet to be seen in the wild….will now reveal itself! Enter WebOS, Stage Left! HP has recently released details of a pair of WebOS based Tablets codenamed Topaz and Opal in the week of January We...

Evolution Of The Netbook – Asus Eee Pc 1015PEM Review

It has been a little over a year now since I have stepped in the mobile computing universe I have always been a strong desktop user and didn’t have or in some cases see the need for having a laptop not to mention thier prices which were not all that  attractive to begin with, so the closest thing I had to mobile computing was my smartphone. After purchasing my first mobile computing device my Samsung NC10 which I also wrote about on Geezam.com in a post titled Netbook Misconception – My NC10 Review. My old Samsung NC10 Netbook will be used as the device of reference when pointing out the advances that Netbooks have undergone.

MacBook Air and FLASH-based Hard Drives: The Quest for Instant On

History is always a good thing to sequester when dealing with electronic gadgets, and Apple Inc. is no exception. They always deliver the goods, be it a new device, the Apple iPad, the Apple iPhone 4, refreshed Apple iPod Nano, Apple iPod Touch, Apple iPod Shuffle, and the Apple iTV all deserving of their own special blog articles - as soon as they become newsworthy, as all the Tech News uproar is STILL Tablet- centric, Silicon Valley still smarting from its sudden appearance out of nowhere, tackled, like American football, to the ground straight out of left field. But the spotlight is still on the recent “one more thing” event hosted by Apple CEO Steve Jobs, in which invitations were sent out, shaped like an Apple Logo being cut out of paper, turnstile 3D oriented and an image of a L...

Netbook Misconception – My NC10 Review

I have been using desktops for a long time and I decided I wanted something with some mobility several items came to mind tablets, netbooks, laptops etc, but in the end I decided to get a netbook because it had the best of tablets and the laptop. One of my main reasons for avoiding the tablets was the touch technology I was thinking of the long run and the maintenance and or possible repair if needed and just the life/longevity of the touch interface led me to question it, in regards to the Laptops my main turn off was the massive size especially the types of Laptops that I was interested in and of course there was also the price factor so at the end of the day for features, durability and price I choose to get the Netbook. Not for High End Software Now I'm tired of reading and heari...
