Painfully sharp displays take onscreen reading to a whole new level
November 8, 2013 | 11:45 am

displayIt's brain-dead obvious that display quality and clarity is key to the reader experience of anyone reading ebooks. And in that respect, ereading enthusiasts are becoming very lucky people. Because tablet and ereader manufacturers are now pushing their technologies to new levels and ever closer to the realm of print. DisplayMate, "The Standard of Excellence for Image and Picture Quality," offers the following demonstration, in its "Flagship Tablet Display Technology Shoot-Out," pitting the Amazon [easyazon-link asin="B00BHJRYYS" locale="us"]Kindle Fire HDX 8.9"[/easyazon-link] against the new Apple iPad Air and the now ageing, but still very highly specced,  [easyazon-link asin="B00ACVHKSC" locale="us"]Google Nexus 10[/easyazon-link], with...

July 26, 2013 | 4:06 pm

Nexus 10By Hammad Saleem It's only been about 24 hours since Google unveiled its new Nexus 7 tablet, and already we have more spicy news to share with our readers. A new rumor suggests that Google and Samsung are working on a new version of the Google Nexus 10 tablet. The rumor comes from a Wall Street Journal reporter, Amir Efrati. He was told by Sundar Pichai that Google and the Korean giant are working together  on a Nexus 10 tablet, which will be released soon. According to Amir Efrati: Expect to see new 10-inch Nexus 10 Android tablet (made by @Samsung) in the near future,...

Tablet Usage: Size Does Matter
January 22, 2013 | 11:00 am

Until recently, I’ve been using an iPad 2 as my sole tablet. I like the iPad. I use it for four main functions: writing, browsing, video and reading. The 10-inch size is perfect for the first three, but it was a bit too large for the last. Because I also use my tablet for scheduling and task management, I tended to take it with me to networking events and client meetings. I always felt a bit silly pulling out such a large device to schedule a meeting or jot a quick note. About a week ago, I bought a Nexus 7 tablet,...

Nexus 10 Back in Google Play Store, Ships in Less Than One Week
January 3, 2013 | 10:00 am

  By Adrian Diaconescu | for Technology Tell Google’s Nexus devices have surely proven to be intensely popular, but narrowing it down to one thing that has been stopping people from buying the Nexus trio is its limited availability. The Nexus 7 has been the only device to keep up with the high demand, while the 10—and especially the 4—have been very rare sights. And while eBay sellers are “kind” enough to supply you with the goods whenever you need it for luxurious prices, it sort of defeats the purpose, since the Nexus 4 and 10 are very attractive because they’re so cheap. But fret not, ladies and...

REVIEW: Google’s Nexus 10 Android tablet as a library patron’s delight
December 26, 2012 | 10:05 am

Google Nexus 10 I drive a 1988 Honda and on the whole lead a frugal life. But I have a weakness for e-books and gizmos for reading them. You can’t fathom technology, at the practical level for library patrons and other book-lovers, without using it. Curious where the tech is headed? Well, what costs too much now may someday be in Asian villages and on the racks at Kmart or in the hands of every high school student in Watts or Harlem. I no longer ask for loaners of review units, though. Why worry about offending vendors? Most of my purchases end up on Craigslist or eBay in a...

REVIEW: Google Nexus 7 Tablet
December 24, 2012 | 11:19 am

  By Mike McEnaney | for Technology Tell Google’s play in the tablet market is the Nexus 7, a 7-inch screen Android tablet clearly built for on-the-go use; once you play with this one for awhile, you’ll also see it was truly designed around—and for—Google Play. While little headway has been made with regard to challengers of Apple’s iPad, we have to say the Nexus 7 may prove one of the more a formidable opponents as the tablet wars roll along. First off, just to be upfront, an iPad feature the Nexus 7 doesn’t have: no rear camera. And the screen resolution, while...

October 29, 2012 | 9:03 pm

From the ever-evolving world of Android tablets today comes news of Google's much-anticipated new line of Nexus devices. As Nate Hoffelder points out at The Digital Reader, Google was initially planning on unveiling the new devices at a media event in New York City today, which was cancelled as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
