First Chumby "Opus" Tablet Picture Leaks, Silently Cruising On BBC

Labels: , ,

An anonymous tipster has just sent the image above to Gizmodo and it's the next tablet / MID / picture frame thing from Chumby. It's sporting the codename "Opus" right now which has been used twice already, one by Motorola and the other by Dell, so that's off to an unoriginal start. Specs are unknown right now but it does have a slight design change.

Next iPad To Have a Flat Back, Be a Bit Smaller, and Will Have a "Wide Range Speaker"

Labels: , , , ,

Coming from Mac Octakara is word on a few new improvements in the next iPad tablet from Apple. Aparently, there'll be a "wide range speaker" with a "metal mesh" over top of it similar to what you see above (just a render). The back of the iPad will actually be flat so that you'll actually be able to rest it down on a tablet properly, but that's expected. The bezel of the iPad will reportedly be about 3mm thinner than the first iPad so that's great news. The overall footprint of the iPad will also be a bit smaller in all ways, which is also expected. Look out for this to get announced in the next month or so.

Labels: , , , , , ,

It looks like Asus has just teased their 12-inch EP121 tablet which will be running Windows 7. This tablet from Asus will be the most powerful to date, packing a speedy Intel Core i5 CPU. Other specs include a USB port, an SD card slot, a webcam, a multitouch display, and a dual-mode active digitizer so it will be able to support finger and pen inputs. Since it is being teased just weeks before CES 2011, you can expect it to make an appearance there. Don't expect this one to be cheap. Check out the teaser video below.

Dell M02M Hits the WiFi Alliance, Will Be Their Next Tablet / MID

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

It's pretty clear that a new device from Dell is currently being tested, it has just been spotted at the WiFi Alliance. Dubbed the M02M, it's a step up from the Streak which is the M01M. This is clearly a "mobile internet device" with support for WiFi b/g/n so it could very well be a new tablet from the company. It could be a variety of things. It could be the 5-inch Streak 2 aka the Opus One or it could also be the 7 (or 10) inch Looking Glass tablet that was leaked by Engadget back in April. We'll just have to wait and see.
