    FineGrain is on the path to go from small time Provo Utah start-up, to big time world success. Founders Levi Price and Eric Rea developed a new case concept for the iPad, one that is strong enough to take a beating and sleek enough to adapt in any situation. In April 2012, the young duo launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund the first production run of FineGrain cases, which only took one month to achieve the full backing and support of many in the iPad user-community.

    Leather tablet cases are primarily about prestige and style, but quite a few may offer function, protection, durability and choice above the average.

    The tablet screen protector is a decent and generally inexpensive way to protect the touchscreen. Sometimes known as “shields”, these accessories are designed for those users frequently on-the-go and/or may be using their tablet outdoors.

  • PLAY CASES

    The "Play Case" category simply refers to any tablet case which may be played with – though these need not necessarily be kids tablet cases. While the great majority of play cases are indeed designed for younger tablet users, adults are also appealed to by manufacturers of this case style, with nostalgic looks at Lego-style blocks and 1980s arcade games, just to mention two examples.

  • Kobo Arc 10 HD

    The Kobo Arc 10 HD is a case of form detracting from function: The awkward shape, thickness and weight (1.4 pounds may not sound like much, but as an ebook-based tablet that’s well weighty) may turn some off before checking out the excellent HD screen and useful apps.

    Even the specs are impressive: The Tegra 4 processor makes the Kobo Arc 10 HD among the fastest in its class, if we consider the tablet an e-book reader first. Micro HDMI and Micro USB ports are included for those seeking to do more than mere reading. With just 16 GB of internal storage space and no SD card ports, the most serious of book lovers may be slightly disappointed, but most should be able to make do.

    The Kobo Arc 8.9 is touted as an alternative to the Google Nexus 7 and is particularly noted for its great gaming capacity. The slightly behind-the-times Android 4.0 OS won’t appeal to the most tech-savvy of tablet users but is hardly a stopping point for the typical user.

    A pair of unique software functions help set the Kobo Arc apart at the starting line: “Tapestries” is an extra-convenient way to organize folders, files and apps that other Android-based tablets would do well in incorporating. The “Discover Ribbon” makes recommendations of sites the user may be interested in, based on viewing history.

  • LENOVO IDEATAB A3000

    0 comments / Posted by Amjad Nabhan



    The Lenovo IdeaTab A3000 is essentially an upgrade to the company’s A1000 model; while dubbing this tablet as a full-on “laptop computer” (as does PR material and advertising) is more than a bit of a stretch, the A3000 can certainly meet the basic needs of a would-be tablet owner at a reasonable price.

    The primary improvement over the IdeaTab A1000 – and several other budget tablets by the company – in the A3000 is the screen. Sharper, more resilient and more responsive than the A1000, this touchscreen is a step up for the company, though the resolution is stuck at a mundane 1024 x 600 pixels.

    The Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 is a bit of a paradox: It’s lightweight but bulky for a 9” tablet; the screen looks outwardly impressive but the 1280 x 800 resolution isn’t especially notable; and priced in the $300 range, it seems like a bargain but a relative lack of noteworthy specs can make this tablet feel overpriced.

    Taking a few cues from the Apple iPad, the Lenovo IdeaTab looks a bit like a slightly smaller version of the market-leading device down to the brushed-chrome finish. Inside is a 1.2 GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor with 1 GB of RAM, and the IdeaTab puts this to good use by including a bunch of Google apps plus Lenovo-specific apps including games, gaming portal and video editing software. The 16 GB of internal storage may be expanded with micro SD cards.
