iFreeTablet â the open source iPad competitor from Spain 

,----[ Quote ]
| Competition for the Apple iPad is already 
| threatening to come from many different, well-
| known companies. Google and HTC may have a 
| tablet this year, Microsoft certainly has a few 
| running Windows 7 from its partner 
| manufacturers. But another tablet looks 
| promising and comes from a complete unknown.


Chromium code changes add more weight to Google tablet speculation

| Evidence supporting the theory that Google is 
| planning to release its own tablet computer is 
| mounting, according to new online reports.



Where are the Linux tablets?

,----[ Quote ]
| In my opinion, the ideal OS for a tablet PC
| would be a Linux-based OS running the Elive
| distribution. This distribution would be
| lightweight enough, yet have plenty of 3D eye
| candy for a modern desktop. The Elive desktop
| would be ideal for a touchscreen-based
| hardware. Yes, this is me showing favoritism,
| but if you really put some thought to it, the
| E17 desktop is perfect for the touchscreen. If
| youâve not experienced Elive, download a Live
| CD of it and try it out. Once you have it
| running, imagine it being used on a tablet PC.
| The only hitch would be how to initiate some
| of the compiz features without having the
| keyboard handy. Of course, after seeing what
| the Elive team has done so far, any hitches to
| tablet migration would be minor.


Android Tablets vs. Apple iPad: Comparison/Review

| With the launch of Appleâs new iPad this week,
| everyone seems to have their eyes tuned into
| the tablet market. Well jump on over to
| Gizmodo for the full review and comparison of
| the iPad, HP Slate, JooJoo, and a few Android
| tablets (Notion Ink Adam, Dell Mini 5, Archos
| 7 Android).


Google Enters the Tablet Fray

,----[ Quote ]
| The Chrome OS, which runs on top of the
| Linux kernel, is a direct challenge to
| Microsoft's(MSFT Quote) dominance in the PC
| market and will also intensify competition
| between Google and Apple. Chrome is
| expected to launch in the second half of
| the year and is an extension of Google's
| Chrome Web browser. It will initially be
| targeted at netbooks -- and tablets.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
