Toshiba to announce ultrathin tablet – leaked pictures

Toshiba may have just released the Thrive tablet, but it isn’t done yet. The company may be planning a thinner, more iPad-like tablet for release in the coming months. While the Thrive targets those that want full size USB connections, swappable batteries, and other PC-like features, this new device looks to be as thin as Apple’s flagship tablet, hinting that the company wants to target a higher-end market with the device. 

Notebook Italia has obtained pictures of what it claims to be a new Toshiba tablet. As you can see above, it appears to have a brushed metal (or brushed plastic) case, MicroHDMI, MicroUSB, and MicroSD ports and slots, as well as a groove on the side of it, indicating that it could have a slide-on dock of some kind, or perhaps a removable battery of its own. We suspect that the tablet runs similar specs to the Thrive, meaning it has a 1GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 8-32GB of internal storage, and 1GB of RAM. The tablet should debut at IFA on Sept. 1.

I’m getting ready to give the Galaxy A55 a full review, but in the meantime, here are my very early impressions of Samsung’s latest affordable phone. As I hinted at, it's definitely looking good, but unfortunately, a few concerns are also creeping in — which I hope will quickly disappear.
A new, sharp shape

Wristwatches have been true extensions of people's personalities for much of the past century. Besides their impact on our social standing, researchers have also claimed that wearing a smartwatch may be associated with being more idealistic and humane. While that's contentious, watches have largely been replaced by smartwatches. Customization, especially the ability to change watch faces frequently, is among the biggest allures of owning a smartwatch -- besides the ease of having a reduced version of a phone on your wrist.
