I just posted Tom’s review of the Mini Studio 8 Android tablet over on Review the Tech… stop by and check it out..
Quote: "Tablets are everywhere these days as they are expected to surpass PCs in sales by 2015 according to C|Net. With some many numerous choices in terms of brands and sizes choosing between Apple, Android and Microsoft based versions can be daunting. Each brand has its strengths and weaknesses. Some brands such as the HP TouchPad have already fallen to the wayside. The current batch of Android tablets are matching and even surpassing Apple’s iOS in terms of features.
For today’s review we will look at the Idolian Mini Studio 8. Idolian, a company that makes tablets and tablet accessories have two versions of their Studio Series this 8” model and a 10.1” screen version. This high performance tablet features a dual core processor and runs the most recent version of Android 4.1 aka Jelly Bean.
Some of the specs include 16 GB of flash memory with the ability to expand storage up to 32 GB using a micro SD, a front and rear camera, built-in speakers, microphone, Bluetooth capability, 1024 x 768 pixel resolution and something not found in Apple iPads or most budget tablets – HDMI output"
Quote: “ Today for review I’ve got a must-have accessory if you own the Le Pan TC970 Android tablet, it’s a screen protector but much more. The Le Pan is a great tablet, but the screen is very glossy so that it reflects light and really attracts fingerprints. I’m the type of person who must have a screen protector on all of my gadgets, just because I feel safer that way and it’s better to be safe than sorry. The product I have for review today I got from Amazon inexpensively, and it’s aptly named the Antiglare Antifingerprint Screen Protector for Le Pan TC 970, it’s from a company called POSRUS. So read on…“

"Since I started covering Sonos products in 2007 their product selection and features have grown exponentially while becoming more affordable. For those people who have been hesitant about adopting a Sonos system now is the time to reconsider that stance. Late in July Sonos released their PLAY:3 speaker system which is a portable stereo system priced at $299 which is less than some high-end iPod speaker system. "

"The media player market has exploded over the past few years if you didn’t notice and it seems you can find then with just about every option imaginable.There are times though when you don’t want or need all those options, you just want something basic that is easy to use and plays your media like its supposed to. Today for review I’ve got the Hornettek Fantasy HD media player that’s small and portable, very easy to use but yet it will play most any type of media file out there today. The Fantasy offers HDMI or composite connection along with SPDIF for optical if you want to go that route. The Fantasy doesn’t use a hard drive, you can use either a USB drive or memory card to get your media to your TV making life that much simpler. Let’s check it out… "

"I’m the type of persons that has to have a case on every device I own. I feel that since I spent the money, I’d like to keep those devices protected. Today for review I’ve got a nice case for the Nintendo 3DS from Joystick Junkies. It was provided by Mobile Fun for my review, so our thanks go out to them of course. The case is clear so you can still see your 3DS, but it will be protected from scratches and scrapes and the rigors of daily use. The case doesn’t add much bulk to your 3DS and still allows full access to all buttons and ports. I personally like the case quite a bit and I think you will too. "

"Up for review today I’ve got another USB 3.0 enclosure, this time from Vantec. It’s called the NexStar 3 SuperSpeed External Hard Drive Enclosure and it’s certainly a very nice looking product. Looks aren’t everything though are they, so that’s why this review, to see how it performs. I’ve put it up against a few other enclosures I’ve got on hand, so continue on to see how it does. "
