Tablet news roundup – Samsung S-Pad, Aigo and Jumper JK01-TT slates

May 4, 2010 at 10:51 am

AigoIt’s becoming trickier keeping up to date with all the tablet news given how everyone seems to be launching one these days. Today’s roundup brings news of three new tablets. Samsung is rumoured to be launching the S-Pad tablet that sports a 7-inch Super AMOLED display and the Android OS. It will include access to Samsung’s own app store and come with a USB dock. There are no pricing details although it’s expected to launch on contract from SK Telecom with a subsidised contract.

Aigo is planning a similarly sized 7-inch tablet that will also run Android 2.1, but will be powered by the Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset. It comes with a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, 512MB RAM, and 4-32GB of internal storage. It also features an HDMI port, an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, 3120mAh battery and card reader.

Lastly we have the Jumper JK01-TT 10.1-inch (1024 x 600) Windows 7 multitouch tablet. It is powered by a 1.66GHz N450 Atom processor, 2GB RAM and a 250GB HDD. Other features include HDMI, a 3000mAh battery, three USB ports, 2MP webcam, Wi-Fi (b/g) and a 4-in-1 card reader. It costs $671.65 from

    Tablets makes sense to me if they fall within the screen size range: 5″ – less than 9″ max. Anything more is ideal for netbooks i.e., anything less than 10.1″ will not work for netbooks – as in the form factor.

    The Apple iPad needs (read: locks) all your senses and limbs to handle it. Its a silly product according to me – just because Apple made it, people bought it. You can’t possibly work on your lap with folded legs for more than 5 minutes. Pure ergonomics considering human form factor.

    Aigo looks good. Would like to see Samsung’s S-Pad – they seem to direct their synergies well for their product range.

    Interesting…there should be more and more companies trying to get market share since the ipad did so well.

    Out of these the Aigo looks best; however, I still haven’t seen one that looks better than Notion Ink’s Adam. However, I’m in no hurry to purchase one of these things. There’s a lot coming in 2010 and I think we will see a lot of improvements in tablets by the end of the heard. So I’ll just watch the product evolution for a while.

    Whatever Apple does has a sense of merit about it and variants like iPhone & iPod are really super products. Apple markets really well and its got a patriotic ’star-spangled-I-love-everything-American’ theme as an undercurrent whenever the buyers flock to buy their products. So am guessing, these are specific buyers – all million of them – who bought the iPad. Undoubtedly iPad is super sexy looking thing but one just can’t take away the obvious merits of the netbook form factor – you’ll always need and probably fall back on one everytime you have serious work to be done for couple of hours even if you owned a tablet. You won’t be able to do that kinda work with a tablet device – not at least in its present stage of form.

    I think these two forms are meant for different usages and/or purposes altogether. I’d like to see how far the tablet succeeds in securing a market share two-three years down the line after the initial hoolahu created by Apple dies down and we get a realistic street view. If tablet form remains as it is in today’s form w/o innovative evolution then my bet is on 7 – 9% at best which should be good enough for tablets mostly within the screen size range I mentioned earlier – no more.

    I hear some of the companies have already shelved their plans to come out with tablet devices citing OS reasons but I think its a decision made judiciously based on serious thinking … rather re-thinking.

    If one has to have a tablet – Notion Ink Adam does seem to have it all .. seems like a better product than iPad. I hear the first NIA for retail will be out by September.

    One tablet form I’d like to go for, however, is the MID Smartphone like the 5″ (actually 4.8″) Dell Mini 5 due out. This’ll work for me anyday and it’ll be an essential mutlipurpose device for everyday use unlike the “tablet only” device meant for lap luxury.

    I hate the new layout so much, it drievs me crazy when I have to dig further to refine my searches. I want MUCH MORE complexity on a search page, not less, or at least I want an easy way to lay out the page the way I want it. Just an example, I frequently do searches on technical problems. Google assigns too much weight to older queries. Before, after scrolling down the first few answers and seeing that I needed to specifically search for things in the last month or year I went to the left side and selected Advanced Options and immediately saw a way to search for only stuff in the last month or year. Now I have to scroll all the way to the top, select Search Tools, then hit another button on the left side of the screen to select the time period I want. It is all a big mouse walk.Please, Google, don’t drink the koolaid that Gnome3, Unity, Windows 8 & OSX Lion are sipping, dumming down your interface for the lowest common denominator in the name of keeping it uncluttered and clean. Otherwise it looks like I’m in the market for a new search engine.

    With every thing that appears to be developing within this area, all your points of view happen to be relatively exciting. On the other hand, I beg your pardon, because I do not subscribe to your entire plan, all be it radical none the less. It seems to me that your comments are generally not entirely rationalized and in fact you are generally your self not totally convinced of your assertion. In any event I did appreciate reading through it.

I don’t care that the seller says these are freshly packed by Sony. The proof is on the package. And the proof says these are probably factory rejects.
