  • New 7-Inch Nook will reportedly have 'revolutionary' screen

    The 7-inch tablet market is rife with rumors these days.

  • Rumour: 10-inch Kindle Fire coming

    Kindle Fire gossip is almost as common as iPhone and iPad rumors. Lately we've been hearing a lot about a new Kindle Fire tablet, which may arrive as early as next month.

  • Toshiba's 13-incher: When is a tablet too big?

    Tablet computers are meant to be held, at least most of the time. But at what point does a slate become too unwieldy to function as a handheld device? The new Toshiba Excite 13, with its gargantuan (by tablet standards) 13.3-inch display, may soon answer that question.

  • Kindle rumours hint at major upgrade in the works

    Will the next generation of Amazon's Kindle eReaders feature a dramatic innovation, possibly a color or lighted display? Recent rumors suggest significant changes are coming for the venerable e-reader, which currently has an e-ink display without backlighting or color.

  • You're spend spending less on tech
