Windows 8.1 is Ready. But.....

Yep, you guess it, it's a massive but! It will be unavailable to the average human being until October.

Only yesterday, Microsoft completed Windows 8.1 it has been seeded to manufacturers. But us less important must wait until October 18th. Strangely, MSDN and TechNet subscribers won’t get an early look in despite the face they ARE developers, but that's just how Microsoft rolls I guess.

The reason this matters to technological society is this means Microsoft get another shot at getting into the glorious tablet market as this will only be available for tablets. This also seems like Microsoft are slowing down the whole PC market thing as tablet's are supposedly taking over the pc (I personally disagree).

So yeah, that happens. Windows 8.1 in 2 months

ASUS Released 7-inch MeMO Pad Last Month.

Hey Guys,

7-Inch tablets seem to be coming out all the time. After the Nexus, all of the tablet manufacturers have been jumping on the small, more convenient tablet trend.

Asus released a 7-Inch Tablet called the MeMO Pad last month. It's quite a reasonable little device for only £149. Anything special here? No. Apart from the very nice price.

It will feature a 7-inch (1024 x 600) display, 1GHz CPU, Mali-400 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 8 or 16GB of storage, microSD slot, 1MP front camera, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The only really bad thing, apart from the display, is that the battery only lasts for 7 hours.

iPad Mini 2 News.

Hey Guys,

It's midnight at the time of writing and I promised to post at least once a day but I was busy with revision. But even thought yesterday is over, I am still going to post this as if it was yesterday because I am hardcore! So excuse me if this iss a bit shit.

It is believed that the iPad Mini 2, Apple’s sequel to the 7.9inch iPad is to arrive in the coming months. The roumor also stated that it will feature a Retina display (Already gone through the stupid name thing) when it was released but didn’t say what exactly that include. But according to a new report from investment news service BrightWire, alleged sources from within Apple’s foreign supply chain say the iPad Mini 2 will feature a 7.9-inch Retina Display with an identical resolution to the full-size iPad 4 with Retina display.

The resolution on the alleged iPad Mini 2 is said to measure 2048 x 1536 pixels, 324 pixels per inch(Nexus 7 has 216) To compare, the iPad 3 and 4 both have display densities of 264 ppi, while the iPhone 5 has a similar density of 326 ppi.

This rumor sounds like a very realistic piece of news considering how Apple gave the screen resolution of the iPad 2 to the original iPad Mini.

I have a feeling it will be

The iPad Mini 2 isn't really that new or innovative, despite what the future video ad may say. It is literally another iPad Mini but most likely thinner and will a better display. I feel Apple should be changing the product a little more then that.

What are your thoughts on a second iPad Mini? Pleae leave a comment below with your opinion

Archos GamePad: the Handheld Android Game Console

Hey Guys,

The Archos Gamepad, an the second android based console. And  ideal Christmas present for only £129.98

Unlike the Xperia Play, the Archos Gamepad is a tablet and has only just been released. So it would be unfair to compare the two.

The GamePad aims to bring classic control systems to modern mobile gaming rather than a touch screen. This bad boy has a 7-inch 1024 x 600 (169.55 PPI") five-point capacitive screen to work with its 16 physical buttons and dual analogue sticks. You can also get up to 9 hours of battery life, about average for a 7-inch tablet.

The Archos GamePad is as much a tablet as a gaming device. It runs Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) for tablets, it therefore includes all the improvements that came with the Jelly Bean update, including even smoother interface animations, voice assistant and Google Now that shows you the right information at the right time.

Since there will be a requirement for 3D games, a powerful graphics card and processor is necessary, the Archos GamePad uses a super-powerful quad-core Mali-400 MP4 GPU and a 1.6GHz Dual Core CPU. More than enough power for even the most graphically stunning 3D games and casual browsing.

Coming with 8GB of internal memory, the Archos GamePad can accept micro-SD cards of up to 64 GB. The ARCHOS GamePad also has a mini-HDMI port so you can plug it into your TV and enjoy your games up on the big screen. Sounds a bit like Wii U.

Strangely, the UK is the only place to be getting it at the moment. The United States will have to wait a year.

This is a much better alternative to the crappy iPad Mini, with the Android OS, the graphics, the gaming standards. Great! If you still want to find out more visit the Archos website or read the Tech Specs Below!

Who Needs a DS When You Have Meep!

Hey Guys!

Most people during the time of Christmas would spend a £150 of their money on the latest model of the DS for their 10 year old child.

Well you can throw that silly idea away because Oregon Scientific has designed a new tablet designed just for kids. Which has an estimated retail price of £92.00 (Converted from dollars).

The tablet has been named Meep! It consists of a 7-inch screen, 4GB internal storage, a 1.0GHz Cortex A8 processor with 512MB RAM, WiFi connectivity, a 0.3mpx camera and it also runs on android 4.0! And as you'd expect, it is very rugged and has a silicon case on the outside for extra grip.

If as a parent you are worried about your kids going wild with internet and supper happy fun time, there are easy to use parental controls. You can observe websites visited, games played set time limits and much more all from your phone or internet device without even touching it! There is also an allowance setting on the Meep app store to make sure your child doesnt overspend.

There are also tons of accessories! For more information CLICK HERE or watch the following video

Nexus 7 Review!

Hey Guys!
This is my review of the Nexus 7 Tab (this is the 16zGB one). This is my only my second review and I did have difficulty recording and using the tablet with my digital camera without a tripod.

Excuse the shakiness and sound, visual blips. A new camera/tripod is on my list of things to buy.

Please Like and Subscribe because it makes me feel happy and motivated to do more things!! :)
