We expected it to be just another of Asus’ harebrained schemes that never really quite came off, and yet here we are, three months on, and we’re holding not just the cheapest Android Honeycomb tablet, but the best one too.

Motorola Xoom review: A bittersweet taste of Honeycomb

The Motorola Xoom Android tablet feels like a crash dummy for Google’s Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system.

Should Apple be worried? Read on for our full Motorola Xoom review and find out.

Dell Inspiron Duo review

The Dell Inspiron Duo, with its novel touchscreen that rotates within its frame, asks us the question: do you want the best of both worlds, PC power and tablet convenience?

To which we ask Dell, “Did you say best?”

You see, the Dell Inspiron Duo is the most ambitious attempt at making a twisting, touchscreen Windows 7 netbook work yet – it’s probably because it shoots so high that it comes crashing down even harder than others that have come and gone before it. Read on for all our thoughts in our full Dell Inspiron Duo review.

Advent Vega review

Update: Advent has been in touch to tell us issues outputting sound through HDMI is down to our Sony TV. Apparently, it’s a well-known issue, with discussions all over the web. We can’t test it at the moment, since we only have Sony TVs to hand, but have you replicated it at home? Give us a shout in the comments section.


Oh, Advent Vega. It’s been a torrid love affair. While the Samsung Galaxy Tab snubbed us with its high asking price, here you were, promising scarily similar performance and specs, at less than half the cost. You’ve been playing hard to get on online stores, and come out of nowhere, winding up as one of the most anticipated gadgets of 2010 in the UK.

Now though, we’ve had a chance to test the slate out thoroughly, and cut through all the hype. Has it been worth the wait? Read our full Advent Vega review to find out.
