When it comes to tablets, most of the time we would think of tablets as being productive add-on devices to our notebook or desktop. As for gaming, sure, you will be able to enjoy a little bit of Angry Birds here and there, as well as some of the more engaging RPGs that are there, but to see a tablet as a serious gaming device? You’re kidding me, right? Acer wants to introduce a paradigm shift with what they deem to be the first dedicated gaming tablet in the world, the Acer Predator 8.
The Acer Predator 8 is no pushover when it comes to processing muscle, but rather, you can more or less call it a beast instead. After all, game play will come to life thanks to the Predator Quadio, which happens to be a combination of a quartet of front-facing speakers and virtual surround sound, whereas tactile feedback will be delivered through Predator TacSense. I suppose this goes to show just how important having great audio to accompany fantastic visuals are.
As for your eyeballs, they will not be left out, but rather, treated to exceptionally realistic visuals thanks to the 8” Full HD display (1920 x 1200) that boasts of Predator ColorBlast technology. As for processing muscle, you can rely on the Intel Atom x7 processor that runs underneath the hood, while Android 5.1 Lollipop remains as the mobile operating system of choice, accompanied by 2
When it comes to tablets for the little ones, you can be sure that the name LeapFrog would, well, leap into your mind, pardon the reference. They have, after all, rolled out their fair share of tablets in the past that target children, with a robustness to match, and the LeapFrog Epic is the latest model from them to hit the market, as it comes with special play and learning experiences that have been designed to adapt as a child grows up – in other words, to maximize the lifespan of the device.
What makes the LeapFrog Epic stand out from its predecessors? Well, apart from sporting a vast number of award-winning learning content plus amazing new interactive features to an Android-based consumer electronics tablet, it will, for the first time, offer children different methods to explore safely, play, imagine and create like never before.
The LeapFrog Epic tablet was specially built from the ground up in order to adapt as a child grows, where one can access unique personalized learning experiences which auto-level with a child’s progress; an amazing first-of-its-kind, customizable, interactive, playable home screen; kid-safe browsing right out of the box which will adjust accessibility as a child is ready; in addition to easy-to-use parental controls that assist and define the play experience for each individual child.
The LeapFrog Epic tablet will run on the Android 4.4 KitKat operating system, where it is powered by a quad-core processor, a brilliant seven-inch multi-touch capacitive LCD screen, front and back camera, video recording capability, 16GB of internal memory and a battery that will be able to run for half a dozen hours before requiring a recharge. If you do not want it to look all that bulky and unwieldy, you are able to remove the included kid-safe bumper and untether the stylus, hence upping the cool factor by another notch so that it is more in line with that of your professional looking adult tablet.
The LeapFrog Epic tablet will retail for $139.99 a pop, where it will cater for children aged three to nine years old.

Monkey see, monkey do, or so that is how it has been for quite a fair number of years already – or should I say, generations. Having said that, it is interesting to know that you do not have to purchase another iPad for your toddler simply because he or she sees you using yours, and wants one, too. VTech knows this, which is why they have come up with the InnoTab MAX tablet for children.
The VTech InnoTab MAX will be different from other tablets, as it will merge VTech’s expert-supported library of cartridges, software and apps alongside carefully selected educational Android apps, resulting in the best of both learning worlds as well as the widest variety of curricula to provide a superior children’s tablet.
Each InnoTab MAX purchase will result in a free educational bundle that will boast of 8 apps, in addition to a free Toca Boca app, right after they register their tablet on the Learning Lodge app store. Parents will be able to pick from a bundle that focuses on a single subject area, including Language Arts, or to pick a bundle that covers a wide range of skills appropriate for their child’s grade level. Not only that, with access to more than 850 educator-supported VTech and Android apps, you would be spoilt for choice.
The InnoTab MAX will be powered by a dual-core CPU with up to six times the processing power of previous generations, accompanied by a high resolution 7″ multi-touch screen, a built-in rechargeable Lithium battery, Parental Controls that enable you to have a greater degree of control over what can and cannot be used, as well as a progress log in order for parents to follow their child’s learning development. Targeting those aged between 3 and 9 years, the InnoTab MAX can be yours for $99.99 a pop, where this could be an early Christmas present.

The choice of hardware when it comes to mobile gaming these days are expansive. I remember back when Nokia used to rule the featurephone market (and there were practically no regular, everyman smartphones available other than the bulky Nokia Communicator series), mobile gaming was relegated to the likes of Snake on them Symbian powered phones, or if you want something more realistic and engaging, you would have to settle for the likes of the Sony PSP or the Nintendo Game Boy Advance or Nintendo DS Lite. Having said that, the explosion of mobile devices over the years have seen mobile gaming evolve, with smartphones and tablets being the primary tools of portable entertainment. The zooti.HD tablet intends to jump aboard such a bandwagon by offering a portable cloud gaming tablet experience.
AtGames, the people who are behind the zooti.HD tablet, has launched their zooti cloud gaming service in January earlier this year at CES. This means one will be able to take advantage of the numerous retro-popular Sega Genesis Classic and Atari Flashback titles on the Google-certified Android tablet that they call the zooti.HD. It is no pushover, this tablet – make no mistake about it, since it comes across as a full featured, Android tablet that will include the full suite of Google apps, not to mention a game bundle that contains more than 85 classic Sega Genesis titles.
Apart from that, you can use the zooti.HD to seamlessly stream hot PC games right to the tablet itself. The asking price for the zooti.HD ain’t too high either – we are looking at some change being returned to you even after you have handed over a single Benjamin – talk about a value for money proposition! One can configure up to 6 different profiles to use the tablet, where each of these profiles can be customized with its own access rights, including the likes of daily time limits, content management, and other parental and safety controls. Hardware specifications of the zooti.HD include a 7” display at 1280 x 800 IPS resolution, an HDMI port, and Bluetooth support.

Our previous exposure to the NVIDIA SHIELD brand was that of it being touted to be a “portable Xbox”, although in reality, it did not seem as though the device was being shaped in such a direction despite the intention of looking like it. This time around, the NVIDIA SHIELD brand is still being used, except that it will focus on the tablet form factor, now how about that? It certainly looks as though this is the next generation tablet that boasts of superior hardware specifications in terms of gaming capability.

Thanks to NVIDIA’s DirectStylus 2 technology, this particular move will open up new possibilities for everyone ranging from note takers to serious artists to take advantage of it. The NVIDIA Dabbler app will even assist you in creating hyper-realistic images while you are on the move.
Fully running on the Android platform, the NVIDIA SHIELD tablet has a microSD memory card slot to deliver another 128GB of storage space, and it receives over-the-air updates directly from NVIDIA. Not only that, it will also play nice with apps from Google Play, while the LTE option would bring a smile to the face of many. Expect the Tegra K1’s 192 dedicated graphics cores inside to deliver the best visuals for a tablet, and to make sure your mobile gaming experience is complete, it even works alongside a new wireless controller.
