How would you change the Nexus 10?
It’s a 10.1-inch tablet with a 2,560 x 1,600 display, and that’s all we need to know. Google’s Nexus 10 may have been the Galaxy Tab that everyone wanted, but what did our reviewer think of it? Sadly, strapping a laptop-class display onto a tablet did for the device’s battery life, making it last around three hours less than its closest rivals. Did that deter you from buying one? We doubt it, so why not share your feelings.

Apps for your parent's new tablet
If your parents got a new tablet for Christmas, what apps are you installing for them? I realized many of my favorite apps wouldn't be useful for them, but I have installed the following:
  • IMDB
  • Flixter (for watching trailors)
  • Skype
  • TED (in hopes they watch some education videos)
  • YouTube
  • Pandora (or Slacker Radio if your in Canada)
  • Facebook
And if your on Android, i felt the following widgets would be handy:
  • weather widget
  • bookmarks widget
  • google search widget
  • calendar widget

gdgt score of 82, you can't be serious...
Nothing but laud for this tablet in the score summary, yet the app ecosystem knocks 18 points to make the N10 barely above average, despite class leading specs and the most complete version of Android to date. ISHYGDDT
If I was looking at a black box of "Gadget X" and was only capable of seeing it's gdgt score of 82, I would think, "wow I almost definitely don't want that, no matter what it is." Yet in this case, I have been wanting it for two weeks and bought mine this morning. I know I'm not... Read more →

Which tablet will dominate sales this holiday season?
This holiday season is shaping up to be an epic battle for tablet manufacturers, with Apple's 4th-gen iPad and iPad mini competing against the Asus Nexus 7 and Samsung Nexus 10, Amazon's Kindle Fire HD, Barnes & Noble's Nook HD, and Microsoft's Surface RT, among others. With so many options, including some good tablets for under $200, will Apple be able to retain its market supremacy -- and if you're in the market for a tablet right... Read more →

Perceived Bias: GDGT Score
Rather than just complain about the numbers I decided to actually read the first 5 reviews of the Apple iPad Gen 4, Gen 3, iPad Mini, Samsung Nexus 10, Asus Nexus 7, and Kindle Paperwhite. Then I looked at the Reviews FAQ that Ryan Block posted to determine how gdgt assessed the gdgt score. I see that the Critic reviews do not tie into the gdgt scoring system (or if they do, I cannot look at the score, but rather am directed to the site of the Critic). I also see that the score is not based on a... Read more →

Nexus 4 and 10 announced. Thoughts and opinions here!
Looks like bad weather isn't stopping Google
Nexus 4: 8GB for $299; 16GB for $349; available unlocked and without a contract on 11/13 on the Google Play store in U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada. The 16GB version will also be available through T-Mobile for $199, with a 2-year contract (check here for more details).
I did not expect the Nexus 4 to be released off contract at such a price. $299/$350 is usually a price... Read more →
