Acer's Olympics-branded Iconia Tab A510 isn't the most eye-catching of Android 4.0 tablets, but it does have a quad-core processor, a useful software bundle and above-average battery life. Business users may prefer the Asus Transformer Pad TF300T for its keyboard dock.
BlackBerry maker Research In Motion has given a glimpse of the features in its new smart virtual keyboard, which it hinted could be coming in its next handset release.BlackBerry 10's virtual keyboard software predicts the next word.
Something odd struck me the other day. I was thinking about putting Windows on one of the Mac mini systems to run in Boot Camp. Why? Because my youngest daughter is learning to play the keyboard, and while she spends most of her time in GarageBand, she does have some software she wants to use that is Windows only. Installing Windows on the Mac sounds like the best solution. This got me thinking ... Microsoft does a lot of those PC vs. Mac comparison type ads ... but why do we never see Microsoft trying to sell Windows licenses direct to Mac users?
Nokia's software keyboards have not been very good so I am extremely pleased to now see the awesome Swype keyboard come to Symbian devices that should continue on to the Nokia N8.
I was messing around with adding devices to my GDGT list today and discovered this discussion about new Zune HD firmware. I then fired up my MSI Wind with Zune desktop software, connected my Zune HD and walked through the 4.1 (191) upgrade. A couple of the key upgrades include a much faster web browser, desktop or mobile controls in the browser and predictive text support with the keyboard.

I posted some thoughts on the Pharos Traveler 137 back in June and at that time it was the first Windows Mobile device that supports the T-Mobile 3G wireless data network. We now have the T-Mobile HTC Touch Pro2 with keyboard available as an option for T-Mobile customers too. The Pharos Traveler 137 is one of those selected Windows Mobile phones that will soon be receiving a Windows Mobile 6.5 update and I was pleased to be able to try out this latest software implementation on the device.

The E52 is Nokia's best candybar-format E-series handset yet. Compact and lightweight, it crams in plenty of features and delivers superb battery life. If you don't need a touch-screen, consider this smartphone.
A couple of weeks ago T-Mobile sent me the myTouch 3G to try out and I posted my first impressions with a statement in there about no plans to upgrade since my G1 has the same software with the addition of a full awesome QWERTY keyboard. I then committed my wireless data services to T-Mobile and found I had a couple of lines with upgrade discounts available. I was thinking that I would use my upgrade to buy the T-Mobile Touch Pro2 that will be available on 12 August (stay tuned for my full review), but after further use of both the myTouch 3G and T-Mobile Touch Pro2 I decided that the myTouch 3G was the one for me. I was able to buy one for $200 and went with the Merlot (burgundy) color because it was a bit different and yet still professional looking.
I just sent back the HTC Touch Diamond2 and then picked up an evaluation HTC Touch Pro2 last Friday. The HTC Touch Pro2 is a follow-up to the HTC Touch Pro device with a higher resolution display, larger form factor, and several software improvements. This device should be coming to the US on various wireless carriers with rumors that T-Mobile USA may get one with 3G data support. The Euro version I am trying out supports quad-band GSM so it works with EDGE on T-Mobile and AT&T, but does not support 3G. The keyboard is large and well space while TouchFLO 3D flies on the Touch Pro2. Check out my image gallery of the Touch Pro2 with the Touch Pro, along with my video first look below.
The rap on the iPhone and iPod touch is that it's chiefly an entertainment device. (After all the software keyboard is damn irritating.
Nokia on Tuesday rolled out its N97, a high-end smartphone with a 3.5 inch touch display, QWERTY keyboard and social location software to allow people to use Facebook, MySpace and other sites on the go.
While cruising the floor at Interop, ZDNet executive editor David Berlind stopped by the Nokia booth to take a look at the E90 Communicator. Between its numeric keypad (on the outside of its clamshell design), a QWERTY keyboard (on the inside), a great display, and a full complement of software for business professionals, might the E90 be the perfect business accessory?
I have been using mobile devices now for just over 10 years, which seems like quite a long time. I was a bit surprised and very happy to recieve an email from Julie stating that Ilium Software is also celebrating their 10th anniversary in the mobile device arena as mobile software developers. To mark the occasion they are having daily specials for everyone to enjoy with the first special being free products, including the excellent InScribe keyboard for Tablet PCs and UMPCs. I personally use their excellent Screen Capture utility to take review photos on my Windows Mobile devices.

Rafe Needleman was sitting next to me during the demo and has more details at Webware.

Unlike SubVirt which relied on commercial virtualization technology like VMware or Virtual PC, Blue Pill uses hardware virtualization and allows the OS to continue talking directly to the hardware. Commercial virtualization software has to emulate full I/O functionality from storage to networking to video and it would be exceedingly simple to detect driver changes. Furthermore, it would take a fairly complex physical to virtual migration to get SubVirt installed on the system. Blue Pill on the other hand can do an on-the-fly install and simply shift your Operating System from direct control of the physical computer to a virtualized state living under the control of Blue Pill. Blue Pill then acts as an ultra-thin Hypervisor that lies dormant most of the time using virtually zero overhead and waits for "interesting" events such as keyboard input.
New features of the updated version of the Parallels Desktop software include upped speed, better keyboard support.
