The new Acer Iconia W501 hit the market in South Africa earlier this month and at a starting price under R6770.00 Incl VAT, this hybrid tablet has a lot to offer. We ran one through its paces earlier this week to provide you with the pros and cons of this new technology.
The South African version comes with 3G and some of the models include the optional docking keyboard as standard. We obtained the 3G model with keyboard to provide you with the best test results. The unit comes straight out of the box with the tablet face and docking keyboard both sporting a sleek black look that dazzles the eye. At first look the unit has two cameras, one front facing and one rear, to allow for full video conferencing through Skype or other communications software.
Stock standard the unit comes with 32GB of memory on an SSD drive. However, it also has a memory slot for an SD card that can give you additional drive space of upto 32GB at 2mb/s transfer speeds. It comes pre-packed with Windows 7 32bit Home Premium (can run 64 bit) or Windows 7 32bit Professional as well as other packages which takes up approximately 20-29GB of your available space. This is why we recommend the additional 32GB SD card so you can store your documents and work without reducing your main drive. Read the rest of this entry »

ASUS announced via Twitter yesterday that it is currently playing around with Android 3.2 Honeycomb on its blockbuster tablet, the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer. ASUS is still testing Honeycomb’s latest and last version, and is looking forward to sending out the upgrade to all Transformers. No target release date has been specified, although it will most likely come out ahead of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).
Android 3.2 Honeycomb will reportedly be the last pre-ICS version in the Honeycomb series. The earlier versions of Honeycomb were optimized for large-screen, mostly 10-inch, Android slates and tablets, and had limited support for mobile processors. Version 3.2 carries new features, such as the following:
- optimized for 7-inch devices,
- expands support for more mobile processors such as NVIDIA Tegra 2 and Qualcomm’s processors,
- fixes some bugs and improves hardware acceleration, and
- provides updates to widgets and apps (e.g., Movies, Movie Studio, Music, etc.). Read the rest of this entry »
