Yesterday we heard that Microsoft will show of its first Windows 8 tablet next week at its annual conference, and now it would appear that the first Windows 8 tablet we will see is from Samsung.

According to a recent report, Microsoft will show off a reference model Windows 8 tablet next week, which has been manufactured by Samsung, although there are no details as yet on the specifications we might see.

Samsung already produces a number of popular Android tablets, which have had problems recently due to the various court cases going on between Apple and Samsung.

If Samsung were to start producing Windows 8 tablets as well as Android based tablets it would be a good move for the company, as the outcome of the various legal cases brought against Samsung by Apple for their Android tablets is yet to be decided.

Is competitor pressure causing Facebook to up its game? Either way, the users win.

There was a time when we all thought Facebook could just rest on its laurels, watching social network wannabes (and even fairly on-par competitors) attempt to steal a fraction of its user base. Facebook clearly had a firm, unwavering grip on our loyalty, and no matter the frustrations or even outrage it caused us, our digital identities and communities were so ingrained in the site that leaving would be worse than staying. And yes, that is a phrase you often use to describe returning to an abusive relationship.

But that may no longer be the case. Part of Facebook’s incredible success can be attributed to timing: Its launch targeted an audience that had been raised with the Internet and was accustomed to experimenting with social platforms. Of course, it’s brilliant design and attent ... Read more »

Samsung has a new netbook coming that is going to be almost just like the N100 that has been tipped in the past. The N100 is a machine that runs the MeeGo operating system. The N102 will have the same 10.1-inch screen and Intel N435 processor inside. The difference will be the OS.

Whereas the N100 runs Meego, the N102 will run Windows 7 Starter. Both the N100 and N102 will run 1GB of DDR3 RAM, the processor is a slow 1.33 GHz, and the storage will be to a 250GB HDD. That means this will be no speed demon.

The screen has an anti-glare coating and a resolution of 1024 x 600. Graphics are going to be via Intel GMA 3150 integrated. Power comes from a 3-cell battery and the netbook has a memory card reader, VGA port, and more. The N100 is expected to be around $200 with the N102 at $299.
