From Ziggytek: Revealed last month, the promising 10-Inch Zenithink tablet that apes the iPad in form is on sale and looks like it could be a good deal, sporting many features that the iPad lacks and at 40% of the price. More »

From Ziggytek: Notion Ink’s very promising Adam tablets have been pushed back to November. In February, when the company enthusiastically showed off the slate, the targeted release was June/July.

A few days ago, HP announced its Android powered tablet, “smartbook.” It is not a “netbook” and not a “smartphone,” but featuring a touchscreen and 3G, the Airlife 100 is a “smartbook.” I remember rolling my eyes when smaller SUVs began being called SAVs.

Archos has been making tablets as media players/web browsing devices for sometime, well before Apple’s iPad. Last year’s Archos 5 shipped with Android 1.5 and was not well reviewed. Critics were not fond with its plasticky screen, which did not have multi-touch, and the 5’s instability and UI jerkiness. Now, Archos is soon to release its bigger Android tablet, the Archos 7.
