The Samsung Series 7 Slate ($1,199) has undergone a makeover in preparation for its partnership with Windows 8. It’s kinda like when you meet a girl at the laundromat in your shorts and raggedy T, then you show up at her house in a damn near tux. (The girl was Windows 8 in this lame analogy). A Core i5 processor, detachable keyboard dock, and pressure-sensitive stylus are the standout new offerings here. Also – we can’t confirm this yet – but we believe that the Series 7 will also come with access to the Internet. Just a rumor at this point, but we’ll keep you updated!

Apparently, you can judge a book by its cover. The kindle fire, the 2nd most popular tablet next to the iPad, now has a handcrafted case to call its own. Priced at $44.95 and available here, the Kindle Fire case is made from black Moroccan cloth and is designed with sound outlets to allow audio transfer from the speakers. It comes in a variety of colors…red, blue, green and charcoal…and it even has an elastic strap to keep the tablet safe and secure. For even more protection, the DODOcase supports the Kindle Fire in a durable, eco-friendly bamboo tray. So, basically it looks like a hardback book when all is said and done, offering yet another security feature as a “disguise” for your Kindle Fire. For that personal touch, you can even get your Fire monogrammed. This is definitely one gift that will have you saying, “one for you, one for me.”

And to think, just 2,000 years ago, we were using stone tablets. For further proof of mankind’s progress, behold the Amazon Kindle Fire, a 7″, 14.6 ounce, multi-touch, Android-running tablet that may not pack all of the size or punch of the iPad, but its $199 price tag makes it a true head-turner. Inside the Fire you’ll find a dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP processor, with 512MB of RAM and 8GB of storage space, plus free Cloud storage for all Amazon content. You’ll be browsing the Web with Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n), and listening to fancy rock-n-roll music through the 3.5 mm stereo audio jack and top-mounted stereo speakers. The Fire’s battery life is rated up to 8 hours for continuous reading or 7.5 hours of video playback with wireless off. Charge it up fully in approximately 4 hours via the included U.S. power adapter, or through the USB 2.0 port.
