iPad Proposal Edition: Tablet TuesdayBy danseitz
To kick off Tablet Tuesdays, we thought we’d open with this hilarious story about an Apple nerd proposing to his girlfriend using an engraved iPad. Were we her, we’d be concerned about how often he describes Apple products as “magical”, but anyway, here’s the latest tablet news from around the web.
Acer has glued two tablets together and is calling it the Iconia. You’ll be able to buy one in late April for $1200; or you could buy two iPads and some duct tape and save $195.
Since the rest of the Internet is whaling on the BlackBerry PlayBook, we’ll leave it alone and just point you to BerryReview’s summary of the OS details that have leaked.
According to Unwired View, the LG Optimus Pad will be hitting Japan this Thursday. We’re sure it’ll garner almost as much notice there as it has here.
The Xoom can apparently now rip Blu-Rays thanks to Foxreal’s software, as SBWire helpfully lets all of us perfectly legitimate owners of Blu-Ray discs know. Ironically, you’ll need a Mac.
And finally, All Things D points us towards proof that the “fans” of the Galaxy Tab in Samsung’s CTIA presentation were actually paid actors. And they weren’t that convincing. Well, yeah, they probably used the Tab.
