I managed to get my hands on the Thinkpad Tablet Keyboard Folio Case from Lenovo recently, fairly cheaply.  I hadn't worried about one before as I found that the Tablet was fine without it for my current needs, but the offer was too attractive to knock back. I've mentioned in several of my Thinkpad Tablet [...]

At the moment I'm not a big blogger, well truthfully if you don't include my Gadgeteer posts I'm not a blogger at all. I'd never used WordPress before until I joined the writers on the Gadgeteer and hadn't even looked at any other blogging sites. To me blogs are kind of moot unless you've actually [...]

Children always want to have things like their parents have, and I'll admit that my daughter had her first (hand-me-down) PDA when she was five.  Before that age, I wouldn't have been comfortable even letting her play with my devices because very young children can have trouble understanding the need for being very careful with [...]

'Bottom' edge with speakers. Samsung Epic shown for comparison- it is actually a tad thicker!
