NVIDIA's Kai Platform Is For More Than Just A Single Tablet Design

ViewSonic Set To Debut A 22-Inch ICS-Powered "Tablet" At Computex This June

Viewsonic, a US-based purveyor of various display technologies and mobile products, teased its "Touch and Connect" series prototypes today, reports Engadget.

The F.A.A. To Review Its Policy On Tablet And E-Reader Usage During Take-off And Landing, But Don't Expect Change Anytime Soon

Hey! Good news! The F.A.A is going to take another look at its stance on "no digital devices during take-off/landing" policy. Sounds pretty promising, right? Not so fast -- this process could take... well, forever. Why is that? Because in order to change the policy, every single device would have to be tested. One at a time. On every plane in existence.
