The Sony Xperia Tablet Z2 was announced this week – and like it’s older brother the Xperia Z Tablet – it’s sure to not disappoint. Billed as the world’s slimmest and lightest waterproof tablet the Z2 sticks to the beautifully sleek industrial lines of the Tablet Z but still packs a hefty punch in terms of performance. Image quality is the first thing that stands out. Utilising Sony’s rich history in image and display technology the Z2 features Live Colour LED – a feature which only appears in Son’y mobile devices – for enhanced colour depth and variety. The TRILUMINOS™ Display technology uses BRAVIA technology to provide a wonderfully vivid and bright viewing experience, which, showcased on the high-resolution 10.1” Full HD, provides a tab perfect for gaming and media-munching.
It’s drawing towards the end of the month, which only means one thing – it’s time to announce our monthly ‘Best Product Review’ winner!
And the winner of this month’s £20 voucher is… Read the rest of this entry »
For many, the iPad can pretty much take over from the laptop or computer in terms of browsing, e-mailing and media viewing duties. But can you ditch your faithful computer altogether? Here are a few tips and suggestions on how you may be able to make your iPad your one and only.
Buy a Keyboard Case
Typing on any touchscreen for a long period of time can be a frustrating and inefficient experience but Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard cases are becoming slimmer, cleaner and altogether better. The Avantree Bluetooth Keyboard Case for iPad Mini and iPad Mini Retina is just an example of the reliable budget options available. The keyboard connects to your iPad wirelessly through Bluetooth and offers a full QWERTY keypad with a comfortable and familiar typing experience. Going for a keyboard case rather than just a standalone Bluetooth keyboard gives you the benefits of added protection and the ideal viewing angle, thanks to integrated stand functions and often all-round front and back protection.
The new range of Official Google Nexus 7 (compatible with both the 2013 and 2012 models) sleeves from Asus are now available to pre-order at GearZap. By buying official gear you can always be sure of quality and fit and the latest range from Asus doesn’t disappoint. Available in three different colours – Bright Yellow, Grey and White, and Black and Grey – they offer fantastic durability and protection due to the padded neoprene material, while the luxurious interior faux fur keeps your screen looking fresh.
The sleeve only adds 105 grams to your device so you will hardly even notice it’s there – and if there’s one criticism of the Nexus 7 as a device it might be the lack of colour options – so the bright yellow would certainly add a splash of colour!
The exquisite range of cases and bags from KNOMO London is now available at GearZap. We have hand picked the best selection of MacBook, iPad and Laptop sleeves and bags – and the entire GearZap team can personally vouch that they are some of the most beautiful products we have ever seen.
Each KNOMO product is lovingly hand crafted using only the finest materials, including only premium leathers sourced from the best tanneries around the world, chosen for their superior quality, rich texture and vibrant colours. Durable, practical and stylish – the range and it’s quality really has to be seen to be believed.
So. You’re looking for the best tablet this Christmas? Well, when you’ve decided whether to go 7 inch or 10 inch (or even 8.9 inch), you’ll have to decide between black or white (or even purple). Is it for you, your Mom or your sister or your brother (or even Gran)? Don’t even get me started on Apple or Android (or even Windows). Confused already? Take a look at our guide to the best tablet choices this yuletide…
Tesco Hudl – best budget option
Tesco’s first step into the tablet world has been a bigger one than many people expected. Although true tech-heads probably wouldn’t touch one with a barge pole the purse friendly Hudl has found an army of admirers, proved by out of stock messages littering Tesco’s website and the pre-Christmas clamour on eBay. But why? For a start £119 for the 1.5 GHZ A9 Quad-core processor and 16GB memory really can’t be sniffed at (it could even be bought for under £100 when using Tesco Clubcard vouchers) and the ease of picking up a device at your local, friendly supermarket is sure to have encouraged tablet first timers. The Hudl was recently voted as the most family friendly tablet available by BBC One’s The One Show and offers a convenient all-round Android package. Snap one up – if you can.
Tonight we’re going to have a look at five of the best cases for the iPad Mini Retina, aka the iPad Mini 2. I’m sure you all know how this works by now, so let’s move right into the recommendations!
Remember when you were a child at Christmas and even though you were lucky enough to get the toy you really really wanted that year you still played with the box more?
Adults love shiny new toys – and kids are no different – so it’s inevitable that they’ll want to get their grubby little mitts on your tablet, download Angry Birds and play it till the cows come home. As there are sure to be thousands of tablets wrapped up under the tree this year how do you ensure you actually get to use yours?
1. Disguise it
Ok, so I guess this one is a long shot. When they realise BBC iPlayer is coming from a previously innocuous looking black book they’ll know something isn’t quite right. Book style cases are available for pretty much every device and can give your tablet a sleek low-profile with a touch of anonymity. The beautiful DODOcase range for the iPad Mini and the Mini Retina - which is handcrafted in San Francisco using traditional book binding techniques – offers a classic minimalist style which is sure to keep the youngsters away (Click the image to see the DODOcase for Google Nexus 2 2013). If you want to take it a step further and really confuse then maybe this Klevercase is more your bag.
The Nexus 7 was a popular tablet due to its price, software and hardware now Google have released its successor the Nexus 7 2. The main new features include back/front facing cameras, a full HD screen, a 1.5 GHZ processor plus 2GB of RAM. The new Nexus is also slimmer at only 8.65mm, so with its added camera we already know that your old Nexus 7 case won’t work, but have no fear Gearzap.com is due to stock the range of Asus official Nexus 7 2 cases.
With the announcement of the 2013 MacBook Air in both 11″ and 13″ models, many are now on the hunt for the best cases for the new MacBook Air. We’ve decided to round up a few of our favourite cases so you’re able to protect and stylise your brand new MacBook Air.
Giving your MacBook Air form-fitting, ventilated protection against scratches, the ToughGuard range offers cases that are both slim and affordable. Whilst they aren’t going to give maximum shock resistance should you drop your MacBook Air, they’re available in a wide range of colours allowing you to customise your device and show off some personality.
Designed to allow easy access to all ports, there are cut-outs along the edges of the ToughGuard. This also helps to aid ventilation keeping your new MacBook Air nice and cool. Available for both MacBook Air sizes, it’s easy to see why the range is so popular.
