Life is all about choices and trade-offs. With the Acer Iconia Tab A100, the main compromise is in size. This 417g tablet, the first to run the Android 3.2 operating system, is too big to be a smartphone and too small – at a 7-inch screen size – to watch movies on. It fills a small niche for those who want an ebook reader that also runs apps.
For some, the form factor might be just about right. While the HTC Flyer is now showing signs of age, both tablets fit into the same mould: both offer a compact 7-inch screen, the Tegra 2 processor running at 1GHz and 1GB RAM. The Acer Iconia [...]

Nokia has finally taken the wraps off the long-awaited N9 phone, bringing with it the first viewing of MeeGo on a handset and jamming a boatload of top-end technology under the hood.
The new handset is rocking MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan, and comes with a 3.9-inch OLED display (no mention of Nokia’s top-end ClearBlack technology though) which runs to a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels (WVGA).
MeeGo brings with a fancy new UI, with no traditional home screen for widgets and icons; instead we get the standard scrolling menu of applications, and list of missed calls and social networking feeds and [...]
