The touchscreen convertible Asus Eee PC T101MT netbook is now available in the US. Its is an ordinary 10.1-inch netbook, but has a display which can be rotated around and folded down onto the keyboard, to be used as a tablet. Let’s see the system specifications of the new ASUS Eee PC T101 MT, then we’ll get to the first impressions:
- 1.66 GHz Atom N450 CPU with Hyper Threading Technology
- 10.1 inch screen, 1024 x 600 (WSVGA), (Touch Screen-Multi Touch) (Multi-Touch only works with Windows 7 Home Premium or higher)

- 3 USB ports, VGA output, Ethernet, Kensington Lock, Mic and Headphones jack and Card reader

Build wise it is tougher and the screen hinges also seems fine for long term use, but it is reassuring. The Chiclet keyboard isn’t that much flexible either an almost all keys are large enough for touch typing with the exception of the area with directional arrows, CTRL, SHIFT and Fn, which will be annoying.
The first thing which you will immediately realize is that where is the power button? You’ll seek it for a few seconds before finding it.

If you wish to use fast speed internet on your netbook or laptop, you can easily do so with the help of a common mobile phone such as the nokia 6700 classic. This will allow you to browse the web on your laptop wherever you go.
Using a Nokia phone for this purpose can be extremely easy as Nokia provides you all the software required for setting up your handset as a 3G modem.
In order to this, you will first have to download Nokia’s PC Suite , setting up your mobile phone as the default device. After doing this, you can connect your Nokia phone using the USB cable. Although you can also use your phone as a modem wirelessly through Bluetooth, but this may be more complicated.
Apple Inc, the world’s most prestigious technology company has come up with yet another wondrous device; the Apple iPad. Launched on January 27th 2010, it is a mobile like device, the shape of a tablet that aims to provide users with a whole new experience in web browsing. What makes the iPad unique is its ability to give the user a surfing experience free from all the conventional ads and annoying boxes on the web pages.
The Apple iPad has a touch screen and a flexible user interface that ensures easy operation, along with high security, which means that hacking an Apple iPad is definitely not an easy task.
In order to expand its sales beyond the iPhone and iPod, Apple has begun taking pre-orders for its iPad multimedia tablet from now onwards.
According to the company, customers who order one of three Wi-Fi versions of the device, will be able to receive their device on April 3rd, no matter whether it is for home delivery or store pickup. However, reservation is limited to two per customer only.
There is hot news now days that Samsung is going to release a Chrome OS netbook in this year.

The laptop is excepted to be same as N210, and the other specifications are following here:
1. 10.1 inch screen
5. Flash Storage: 64 GB
6. Battery Life: 12 Hours
7. Processor: There is news that it will be Snapdragon 1.5GHz. but this is not confirmed as these gossips are not proved to be true by Phil.
Although many people are fascinated by the Apple’s iPad, but unfortunately it may not be as good as it seems. There are some prominent drawbacks that make iPad not a nice buy.
1. No Multitasking
The iPad is supposed to be a replacement for netbooks, but is it possible do this without the ability to multitask? This means that if you open one application, you will be unable to do anything else. Listen to Pandora while writing a document or having Twitter app opened at the same time as the browser is only a dream now. This alone makes iPad less attractive.
2. No Cameras
Such a big screen, and no camera? I wonder what the downside was for including at least one camera. It could have made iPad much more than it is, enabling voice chat too.
Recent news is that the technology company, Apple, is ready to launch a new, touch-sensitive mini-laptop, probably named as the iSlate, possibly as soon as next month.
There are hopes that the launch of the new device could do the same for the ebook and netbook, what iPhone did to mobile phones, i.e. become the sole leader of the market.
This anticipation has pushed shares in the company to a record high of $209.06 on December 24, up 3.4pc on the day alone. The shares have more than doubled in the past year.
The giant phone maker, Nokia, has re-entered the computer manufacturing business, which it had left in 1991.
The re-entry has been done with the introduction of the Nokia Booklet 3G to the portable computer world, with the strong advantage of long battery life, which is one of the main features, the company’s phones are famous for.
Although it does seem like a strange idea, having a netbook created around a battery, but someone who has to travel extensively and uses battery power will understand the requirement of a long battery life.
The Nokia Booklet gives a very stylish look, to the extent that it may put Apple laptops behind.
Nokia has successfully abandoned some of the traditional ways of heat dispensing and overall manufacturing methodology that have been seen before in netbooks.
