Three top tablets that *aren’t* Apple

RIM Blackpad

Due to be available as of November, this 7″ high end tablet is designed more as en enterprise tool so predominantly aimed at business users. It will include a new graphical menu system, secure email and of course wi-fi. We love Blackberry so will be interesting to see how it compares to the iPad…

HP Slate


Due to arrive early 2011, this will be a Windows 7 computer that has great touch screen capability and fast web browsing. Keep a look out for the so-called PalmPad, HP’s rumoured webOS tablet, which is said to be landing later this year, complete with stylus.

Samsung Galaxy Tab


This arrives in September and is a 7″ tablet  with a good quality OLED display, powered by a 1.2GHz processor. It is probably the closest rival to the iPad and runs Android 2.2. It also has wi-fi and 3G.

Back and bolder than ever!


Yehhhh I finally got my new Blackberry Bold 9700 up and running and yep you guessed it, I LOVE it!! The last one was well just too big for me (mmm don’t say that very often!) and this new one is slimmer and sleeker and features a touch-sensitive trackpad that makes navigating easy peasy, we like! There’s also HSDPA and WiFi connectivity, so you can access all your fave sites, and with the push email service you can get up to 10 accounts.

Packed with features, the BlackBerry Bold 9700 has plenty to keep you entertained, with a 3.2 mega pixel camera, on-board GPS, media player and 3.5 mm stereo headset jack, plus 32GB of memory storage via an interchangeable microSD card to store your music, videos and photos. It also syncs with your iTunes® and Windows Media Player accounts*, so you’ll never be without your choonz.

And for those who mean business, it couldn’t be easier to work on the go. Word, Excel and PowerPoint attachments can be viewed, edited and sent using BlackBerry Bold smartphone’s user-friendly QWERTY keyboard. A built-in calendar, memo pad and task list helps to keep everything organised.

Easily share videos on Twitter with Twitvid

For all you Blackberry and iPhone kids who love a good ‘tweet’ check out TwitVid. You can now post short vids on Twitter using your Blackberry (pretty similar to apps that have been available from iTunes for a while).

Simply download the app, click “Record a New Video,” record, enter your tweet and send. Easy peasy! It’s then posted on your Twitter page with a link to the video. TwitVid will tell you how many characters are left to type as we know – your characters are limited, but the length of the video isn’t. Now when you say you’re having a glass of wine in the sun, you can show them how you look drinking it! Yay!

Blackberry bedside manners: sex, sleep of smartphone?


I find myself increasingly having this conversation with my fellow lovers of their crackberry – what are the rules for living with love and technology? I mean wouldn’t we all rather go to bed to have some fun than sending out one last tweet of the day to John Mayer? and how many people do you see supposedly having an intimate dinner, only to be interupted by the red flashing light of their Blackberry winking at them saying go on, ‘read me’.

Relationship counsellors have noticed that ” People feel they’re not being shown enough consideration, that they’re being excluded if their partner is spending a lot of time using phones for socialising, playing games or working.” It really does seem to be a phenomenon that is on the increase, emphasised by the fact that these devices are mobile so can be accessed antime, anyplace, anywhere.

So how many of you take your Blackberry, your iPhone even your laptop to bed? Is it sex, sleep or smartphone for you? I know which one I’d pick…
