  • Off-the-grid entertainment with DVB-T on a Windows 8 Tablet.

    11 April 2014, 3:00 am by: Chippy

    For cheap, off-the-grid entertainment, OTA digital TV is the only way to get live information onto a tablet. I took a DVB-T receiver from Terratec, installed the driver and the TV software along with a codec pack on a Dell Venue 8 Pro and it’s working very…
  • Acer Aspire Switch SW5 shows-up at reseller.

    9 April 2014, 2:02 pm by: Chippy

    It’s a brave reseller that breaks what we assume would be an NDA in order to gain the SEO advantage so hats-off to Brack in Switzerland who give us the first real detail about the Acer Aspire Switch SW5. This Baytrail-T based 2-in-1 is clearly on the…
  • Windows 8.1 Update – update.

    9 April 2014, 4:17 am by: Chippy

    With only 2/9 touch PCs updated here, 1 installing as I write, 1 downloading and 5 failures that need re-trying I suspect that there’s quite a bit of throttling and control going on by Microsoft today. I’m behind 1 IP address and after trying concurrent…
  • Lenovo Thinkpad 10 coming with next-gen Baytrail specs.

    8 April 2014, 5:24 pm by: Chippy

    Miix 2 8 and Miix 2 10, Thinkpad 8 and Thinkpad 10. It makes sense, right? The Thinkpad 10 is due to launch next month if the news is correct. Expect something to challenge the HP Elitepad 1000 and Fujitsu Q584 and something that could have all the great…
  • Acer Iconia Tab W4 (3G) Review

    7 April 2014, 9:25 am by: Chippy

    In our fifth 8-inch Windows Tablet review we’re taking a look at the Acer Iconia W4. Acer were the first to bring an 8-inch Windows 8 tablet to the market but the W3 really wasn’t at all an impressive device. The W4, however, looks a whole lot better and…
  • $99 Windows tablet specs and the mid-range refresh.

    4 April 2014, 9:16 am by: Chippy

    The immediate worry about the $99-$129 entry-level Windows tablets is around the issue of quality. Low-cost Chinese ODM tablets won’t be the best tablets around but at least the performance won’t go down. You’ll still get Windows 8 on a Baytrail-T…
  • Windows Tablets at $99, Realsense for high-end later this year

    3 April 2014, 1:21 pm by: Chippy

    As we followed IDF yesterday we heard about a $99 tablet price target. We assumed it was for Android tablets but no, Intel are targeting their low-end Baytrail solution for Windows tablets at that price point. Intel are also increasing marketing and promising…
  • Braswell 14nm SoC for ‘Entry’ PCs in 2015.

    3 April 2014, 12:01 pm by: Chippy

    Although Intel are updating the current Baytrail D/M range, we’re looking forward to a 14m version and an all-round update for Windows tablets and mobile PCs. That update was previously thought to be CherryTrail but it turns out that Braswell is in the mix…
  • Intel Android Portal 01.org includes KitKat download for PCs

    3 April 2014, 10:13 am by: Chippy

    The Intel Developer Forum in Shenzen has just come to a close and I’m trawling through some interesting slides that were presented in the sessions. There’s a few articles queued-up but here’s one related to Android that is stimulating my thoughts about…
  • BUILD Day 1 Keynote. All the goodness now available on video.

    2 April 2014, 5:22 pm by: Chippy

    It was a long opening keynote at BUILD today but totally worth watching all the way from start to finish. There were exciting announcements across-the-board and when I say across-the-board I mean announcements that affect cross-Windows compatibility. The…
  • Intel IDF14 China – Brian Krzanich keynote video and breakdown.

    2 April 2014, 3:50 pm by: Chippy

    Intel’s developer forum for China kicked of today in Shenzen. We weren’t able to attend but we’ve been following it closely. Much of the news related to mobile and tablet PCs is to be found in the forum session PDFs and we’ve already seen how Intel are…
