Dell 10-inch Windows 7 Tablet Now Aimed at Fall 2011

Wysips Solar-Powered Screen Cover to Add $1 to Smartphone price [ALPHA]

There are more details coming out over the Wysips Solar Powered screen for smartphones we reported on last week. According to this hands on, done by Laptop Magazine, the photovoltaic screen will be included in new smartphones within a year and promises to only add about $1 to existing cellphone prices. The hands on shows a smartphone mockup with an amp-meter attached to it, showing the fluctuating voltage as the device moves in and out of exposed light. Wysips also says that the solar film isn't only being developed for for smartphones, it'll have applications for tablets and eBook readers as well.

Touchscreens may do double duty as solar panels

French company Wysips is working on a new technology which would cause smartphone touchscreens to do double duty as solar panels to recharge phones. The concept is quite interesting as it involves laying an ultra thin transparent photovoltaic film layer on top of the cellphone display screen. The film would capture energy not only from the sun, but any nearby light source. Projected recharge times would be about six hours from direct sunlight and a few hours longer from leaching energy from indoor lights. Wysips is already at work on the second generation of the technology, which looks to provide 30 minutes of talk time after just an hour in the sun.

Study: More Tablets, less trees

As HP moves to position their TouchPad tablet into the marketplace with wireless printing, they are also seeing that a tablet's ability to view and edit documents easily is making the demand for printing material drop pretty rapidly. And a Morgan Stanley study reflects that with the expectation that printer supplies revenue will drop by as much as 5 percent annually by 2012. That's certainly good news for the environment and bad news for printer companies.

Google States Honeycomb is a Tablet Operating System

One of the biggest mysteries of the Honeycomb operating system was if it would also be available for smaller devices such as phones. After the initial walkthrough at this year's CES, it seemed that it might be able to function on a smaller screen, but an unnamed Google spokesperson has contradicted what we've heard and stated "...right now, [Honeycomb] is a tablet operating system."
