Activision has announced Multiplayer Online Community Subscription Service for its Call of Duty franchise named Call of Duty Elite.

Call of Duty Elite is an online service that will unite the multiplayer community. The service offers cutting-edge features which enhance the multiplayer experience and deliver a new level of social engagement to players.


Video game company Activision has finally revealed Elite, a new social layer for its wildly popular Call of Duty games. Elite was designed to unite the massive community of Call of Duty players as well as provide tools to help gamers of all levels improve their skills.

Cross-platform services are becoming more popular as video game designers realize their community isn’t console-specific. Web players want to test their mettle against console players and vice versa. Elite goes beyond the game to include social networks like Facebook. Users can link up their Facebook accounts to Elite to pull in Likes and automatically find friends who are also using the service.

Elite also introduces groups and clans, which will play a much larger role in Modern Warfare 3, the next Call of Duty game. Groups are largely open and can be based on anything. Like eating lobster? You can join or create a “Lobster” group. Like playing with machine guns? There’s a group for that. Same with “Yankees” or “Los Angeles.” Groups operate similar to fan pages on Facebook. Users can track and compare themselves to these mini-communities of players. Users can join a total of 64 groups.

Clans are more limited. Users can only belong to one clan and there is a cap on how many players can be in a clan. The Call of Duty folks were tight-lipped about how clans will play into the next iteration but promised they would be key.

The service is available on web browsers, consoles and mobile apps and will work with all future Call of Duty games, including Black Ops, the most recent game in the series. Elite features four main sections: Career, Connect, Compete and Improve.

The service will launch in full along with Modern Warfare 3 in November, but a beta is already open for use with Black Ops. Elite is largely free, though a premium membership is needed to get full functionality. That membership also includes all downloadable content released in the future, but it still might be a little pricey for the casual user.

UPDATEApple has launched iPod Touch 5th Genartion, please check out the details here under:

While previewing iPod Touch 5G features, the next iPod 5th Generation to be released late 2012, we have to go beyond what Apple offered in iPod Touch 4G. iPod Touch version release last year matched much of what dominated the iPhone 4 but there is still gaps between what users want and what Apple may provide.

Apple is purportedly testing a next generation iPod Touch hardware platform for a 5th Generation iPod Touch revision expected later this year. While the external design look and feel is still being worked out, in-house testing based on an iPhone 4S variant module with A5X processor chip is already on in Apple Labs, reported 9to5 Mac.

The iPod Touch 5G rumors, speculation and wish lists are as usual running high, that what features and specs will be included in the next generation iPod Touch 5G, what will be next iPod Touch release date and price. Here under is a generation 5th iPod Touch 5G preview with a look at what we may find in the next version:

iPod5G: iPod Touch 5G Release Date, Features, Price: iPod 5th Generation in 2012

iPod Touch 5G Features: 5th Generation iPod 5G Specs Expected

We are listing down all the Apple iPod Touch 5G Features expectations being predicted in discussions speculation and rumors running around the web.
Please do let us know which of these features do you think will appear on Apple iPod Touch 5G?

Radio without Wi-Fi
Possibly, but could not bet on it. Apple wants people to use the App Store for apps, and one will find a great deal of radio apps there, and that would not go well with all the developers. Apple also seems to think that people would rather listen to their own music than a radio channel, so iTechWhiz not so sure about this.

Better Still Photos Camera 2MP~5MP
Yes, this is probably coming. Apple added the camera on the 4th generation, and it would make sense to get a better camera on the 5th generation, seeing as there's rumours about a much better camera on the new iPhone 5.

Possibility of 3D Camera System with two cameras, one on rear other on back is very low. The market for this is just not big enough, and with the crappy censors in mobile devices that is not going to happen.

Camera with Flash that creates videos in 1080p instead of 720p is no big deal, we may see this as a part of the camera improvement

iPad like 3G Micro SIM Card Service for iPod Tocuh 5G
It is highly doubtful, that would make the gap between the iPhone and the iPod Touch much smaller, especially considering one can Facetime and use VoIP apps, so it would only eat away a larger portion of the iPhone market, and Apple earns more money per iPhone than per iPod Touch.

Built-in GPS for Maps and Other Services
Again a highly doubtful feature, probably not to come out yet.

Separate Orientation Lock button
I doubt this as well, it would only make it seems larger and chunkier, and this can be done from iOS instead.

Facetime Over 3G
This requires you to have a 3G connection, which I think we won't see in a few more years, if ever.

Battery Percentage Display next to the battery icon.
This is not a 5th gen specific change, probably just an iOS change.

Nokia 5233 like Media Bar
Possible change in the next iOS version, but not a specific 5th gen change.

Improved Retina Display
Possibly, but not until the 6th gen. 3D Retina Display Screen to be in competition with the Nintendo 3DS is also not much expected.

Wireless Synch with iTunes on PC & Mac
There are high Possibilities for this, basically its also an iOS change, and they might make this available for 4th and 5th gen iPod Touch customers only.

Apple's A5 Processor Chip with 256MB to 512MB RAM
Yes, definitely will be on board in order to reach required speed improvements.

HDMI Video Output with Mirroring Image
This is probably reserved for the iPad, as it's somewhere between an iPod Touch and a notebook.

More Video Formats and Download YouTube VideosNot so sure about the later, but do not expect more format since Apple likes to control the formats, and they want you to use iTunes and iTMS for most of your media.

Change Calendar sounds, Names of Songs, Videos and Playlists on the Device
Possible iOS change, but that would make iTunes somewhat more oblivious, and that's not something they would want.
The are lot of other thing being discussed around which iTechWhiz do not find worth discussing due to their low possibility or expectancy, like "SD Card Slot for Photos USB Slot", "Memory Card Slot for Expandable Memory" and "A larger 4 inches screen to be in competition with Android"...

Apple iPod Touch 5G Price of next 5th Generation iPod

The basics that we often see with updates around the iPod could include changes in price and storage space, along with a possible increase in iPod Touch battery life.

Now with the iPod Touch 4 price starting at $229 it will be easy to assume that the price may drop below $200 for smaller storage space iPods. This could possibly allow for a more bare bones version for a lower price, but this may end up decreasing the need for the newer iPod Nano versions.

At the same time, the maximum storage space offered in the iPod Touch may increase as well. The iPod Classic size got over 100GB in the later incarnations, and it is possible that the maximum iPod Touch storage size will double from its current 64GB.

iPod Touch 5G Release Date of 5th Generation iPod5G

Precisely no one has supported, but consorting to the gossips, the further iPod touch is going to arrive in September 2012, taking in mind that further iPod models pop out every year in September. Even if there are not approved facts from Apple, gossips are going around, guessing the future of their popular gaming device.
This is just a summery of possibilities and probabilities about next coming Apple iPod Touch 5G. Unfortunately, as far now, no one knows anything with authenticity other than Apple itself, which is known to strongly keep its cards close to the chest.

Apple iPod Touch 4G Features

The iPod Touch has been the world's premium MP3 player for some time and it has raised the bar even high with the launch of the new iPod Touch 4G model. Despite the new iPod touch being even thinner than previous model, Apple has managed to squeeze into it a super-sharp Retina display, two cameras and the A4 processor that powers the iPhone 4 and iPad. Lets have a look at Apple iPod Touch 4G Features in details:

iPod Touch 4G Design
The new iPod Touch 4G is more curvy and less thinner than its predecessor. It is now a mere 7.2 millimeters thin and features a engineered glass front and stainless steel back that feels sleek and smooth in your hand. The display has been revamped to the iPhone 4 like Retina display consisting of a 960-by-640 backlit LCD. It packs 326 pixels per inch, making it the highest-resolution iPod screen ever.
iPod Touch 4G

It is powered by Apple's own A4 chip set and also has a built-in three-axis gyroscope. The gyroscope when coupled with the accelerometer, makes the iPod touch 4G capable of advanced motion sensing such as user acceleration, full 3D attitude, and rotation rate.

2 Cameras on the iPod Touch 4G
Apple has included not one but 2 cameras: a HD 720p video recordable rear facing camera and a front-facing camera for making FaceTime video calls over Wi-Fi to other iPod Touch 4Gs and iPhones. The front camera can also be used to shoot self-portraits. You can record video in low-light settings, thanks to the advanced backside illumination sensor.
iPod Touch 4G

iPod Touch 4G Review, Price and Conclusion

When compared to iPod nano, with the 8GB nano coming in at £129 and the 16GB model £159, the huge number of extra features you get with the iPod Touch 4G makes it totally worth the extra money.

Comparing it to the iPhone is more complicated, and ultimately, your choice will depend on what you want to use the device for.

Remember that just because the iPod touch can't connect to mobile networks itself doesn't mean it can't be used as a phone or to browse the web when you're not within range of your Wi-Fi network.

As well as FaceTime, apps such as Skype enable you to make and receive calls, and if you're prepared to carry round a MiFi dongle (which turns a 3G signal into a Wi-Fi network), then you're no longer tied to fixed Wi-Fi.

Certainly for occasional use, an iPod touch and a PAYG MiFi is far cheaper than buying the bottom-end iPhone 4 on PAYG.

So comparing the touch to the other products in Apple's range, it offers remarkably good value for the incredible set of features you get with it.

But taking a step back, £189 is a lot of money to stump up for anything, let alone £329, however good its feature-set may be. It would have been nice to see the 8GB model come in below the £150 mark, and the 64GB version dropped to under that £300 hurdle.

Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Networks Hacked

Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Networks Hacked as a result of tenacious cyber security attack on World Largest Private Defense Equipment Manufacturer, holding highly sensitive information.

Lockheed Martin, a very sensitive defense contractor of United States, with $50 billions annual profit estimatedly, was hit hard by hackers this week who used falsified SecurID Electronic Tokens to gain access. The breach threatens the security of vital data about current and future military technology projects.


Lockheed Martin, the Department of Homeland Security and the Pentagon confirmed that the contractor's information systems had come under attack. Lt. Col. April Cunningham, speaking for the Defense Department, said:
The impact on the Pentagon is minimal and we do not expect any adverse effect.
However, It isn't clear what, if anything, was stolen during the breach. It isn't even clear what the hackers want, but the attacks are being traced back to an hacking campaign back in March on the RSA Security arm of the EMC Corporation, an information storage firm. That one attack compromised the security of anyone using the RSA technology—which means most Fortune 500 companies, other military contractors, and even the Pentagon. Most of these companies have since taken action to address the security issues inherent here, but as Rick Moy, president of NSS Labs, told Reuters:
Given the military targets, and that millions of compromised keys are in circulation, this is not over.
Lockheed remains confident that their broader security systems already in place will have served to prevent or at least soften the blow from this breach. RSA, however, is at a crossroads. The fallout from this will likely result in newer, more secure, but more expensive technologies being relied upon in the future to prevent this from happening again. Rick Moy further said:
The RSA breach did raise concerns about any security tokens that had been compromised, and EMC now faced tough questions about whether "they can repair that product line or whether they need to ditch it and start over again.
Does that mean Lockheed will be investing in biometric scanners in the very-near future? Time will tell, as more details on just how serious this matter was are still on the way.

WP7: Windows Phone 7 Mango Updates - Features, Apps, Release Date
Though it reminds me a hilarious quote, that was actually referenced to came from Bill Gates himself, who said:
Life was much simpler when Apple and Black Berries were only fruits.
But today, even Microsoft seems to impressed from the popularity or Apple iPhone and RIM's Black Berry, by naming its next WP7 update "Microsoft Windows Phone 7 Mango".

Windows Phone 7 Mango is promised to bring around 500 new features to including Xbox integration, Twitter integration, SkyDrive sync, multi-tasking and more internet features according to briefings and revealings at the Mobile World Congress 2011 and Microsoft MIX11.


Here is Windows Phone 7 Mango Demo presented on the second day of Microsoft MIX11:

With the announcement of next chapter in Windows Phone 7 Mango by Microsoft, there are lot of rumors running high in the mobile market. However, one thing is sure, the Windows Phone 7 Mango update is not just another regular update with copy paste and bug fixes. The Windows Phone 7 Mango update is going to be something real big and significant with almost 500 new features on the table.

So, let take a closer look at everything one can and needs to know about Windows Phone 7 Mango:

Windows Phone 7 Mango Features: Unify Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn with The People Hub

The People Hub has traditionally been the place to unify your contacts so you can see their Facebook updates, along with any communication you have had with them via text, calls and social networking, along with their photos. Now Twitter and LinkedIn are supported o you can view your friend's information and feeds via the People Hub, whether they're a business contact or social contact. If your contact has been tagged in a photo, you can view these from the People Hub too and.

Groups is another new addition to the People Hub and any groups, whether different circle of friends, business contacts, family or best friends appear appear at top of 'All' list in the People Hub. The People tiles will update within a group, and you can send the whole group a message individually through Facebook or phone, or any other way of communicating within the People Hub. You can also view photos where everyone in that group is tagged.

Facebook Chat has been added to the People Hub too, so you can communicate to your friends via social IM. You can set your status to be 'away' so your contacts will not be able to access your though FaceBook Chat, but wil be able to do so through text if need be. This works the same the other way too. For example, if you're having a chat to a friend via FaceBook chat on your mobile and then they leave the conversation, your phone will suggest you send them a text message instead. The conversation thread interface has also been updated, allowing you to view the conversation via all message types, whether you've started a conversation via email then through FaceBook via text.

Apps are better integrated than ever into the whole Windows Phone 7 Mango interface. Where previously and on other platforms, applications sit independently on a device and don't seem to communicate with the device, Mango introduces a fully integrated solution where everything 'speaks' to your device. We've already covered a lot of this within the People Hub, where LinkedIn, FaceBook and Twitter all appear in the People Hub, allowing you to have conversations with anyone, using any network, anywhere.

The BA application was one of those demonstrated, including the ability to add app shortcuts to your homescreen. In this case, you are able to add your boarding pass to your homescreen so it could be accessed super-fast if any security approaches you while at the airport.

Windows Phone 7 Mango Features: IE9, HTML5, Bing and Podcast with Internet Hub

The internet hub has been overhauled with the introduction of Internet Explorer 9 for mobile. For starters, IE9 is much faster than any other browser for rendering pages.

In a comparisons with a BlackBerry, iPhone and Android device, the Windows Phone 7 Mango device loaded much faster. The BlackBerry loaded at 4fps, the Android device at 10fps and the Windows Phone 7 Mango device at 26fps.

Functionality has also been overhauled, and again, communicates with all aspects of the phone. Start typing in a search, for example Water for Elephants. As you type, the results for that term will show up before you press anything. Your location will be traced and the movie times in your local area will be shown.

When you click on the result, a Quick Card will show all the information, including ratings, running time and other essential information. Now type in a restaurant you want to visit. A Quick Card will appear with the restaurant information - a picture of the restaurant, reviews and contact details, down to the exact neighborhood. Click on the neighborhood and you'll be taken to Local Scout which lists everything nearby to you.

These link with apps too. For example, if you're searching for a film in the internet, it will search information available in your apps too. So if you have IMDB installed, you can look up information about that film in IMDB too. Visual search has also been added, allowing you to read a photo and search for that item.

Windows Phone 7 Mango Features: Multitasking Support

Multitasking was one of the most hyped improvements on Windows Phone 7 Mango and it's certainly a welcome addition here.

Firstly, Microsoft has made it effortless to switch between applications and games to the homescreen, and even if you receive a call or text from within the app, you ca check it out.

When you fire the app up again, it will start instantly. If you press and hold the back key, you can move between the applications too.

Windows Phone 7 Mango Features: Xbox and Angry Birds Integration

Although the Xbox integration was only tapped upon, Mango users can expect quite a few changes to the interface and the way things will work with your Xbox account.

Firstly, everything is coordinated whether you're using Xbox on your mobile, PC or console. You can edit your avatar and view all of your account across the three screen and have a look at your collectibles.

Instead of viewing your gaming progress within the games themselves, you can now view how you're doing in the whole Xbox Hub, from within the application. You can also share your progress with friends in your social networks and comment on games too.

Upcoming Windows Phone 7 Mango Brand Devices and Gadgets

Microsoft said all the current hardware manufacturers (HTC, Samsung, Dell and LG) will make more devices to run on Windows Phone 7 Mango, with new manufacturers coming on board too. You can expect to see new devices from Acer, Fujitsu and ZTE coming later this year. We'll have more on Windows Phone Mango very soon.

Windows Phone 7 Mango Release Date

You'll start getting alerts saying it's ready in fall this year (Autumn for the UK), and will just need to plug your hone into your computer. We assume the download will be pretty hefty, so you may want to put a little time aside.

2011 Memorial Day Weekend: History, Parade, Events, Activities and Quotes

Memorial Day is a United States Federal Holiday observed on the Last Monday of May (May 30 for 2011). Formerly known as Decoration Day, the day was formally changed to Memorial Day in memory and honor of those who gave their lives fighting for a common cause, America.

Memorial Day commemorates men and women who died while in military service to the United States. First enacted to honor Union and Confederate soldiers following the American Civil War, it was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in wars.

Memorial Day often marks the start of the Summer Vacation Season and Labor Day its end.


History and Purpose of Memorial Day

Memorial Day begun as a ritual of remembrance and reconciliation after the civil war, by the early 20th century. Memorial Day was an occasion for more general expressions of memory, as ordinary people visited the graves of their deceased relatives, whether they had served in the military or not.
  1. By 1865 the practice of decorating soldiers graves had become widespread in the North.
  2. On May 5, 1868, in his capacity as commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic – the organization for Northern Civil War veterans – Logan issued a proclamation that "Decoration Day" should be observed nationwide.
  3. There were events in 183 cemeteries in 27 states in 1868, and 336 in 1869.
  4. The northern states quickly adopted the holiday; Michigan made "Decoration Day" an official state holiday in 1871 and by 1890 every northern state followed suit.
  5. The Memorial Day speech became an occasion for veterans, politicians and ministers to commemorate the war – and at first to recall the atrocities of the enemy.
  6. They mixed religion and celebratory nationalism and provided a means for the people to make sense of their history in terms of sacrifice for a better nation, one closer to their God.
  7. Ironton, Ohio lays claim to the nation's oldest continuously running Memorial Day parade, since 1868.
  8. In 1882, the name of Decoration Day was formally changed to 'Memorial Day' in memory and honor of those who gave their lives fighting for a common cause, America.
It also became a long weekend increasingly devoted to shopping, family gatherings, fireworks, trips to the beach, and national media events such as the Indianapolis 500 (since 1911) and the Coca-Cola 600 (since 1960) auto races.

KungFu Panda 2: Game Screens, Trailer and Release Date for PS3, Wii, DS, Xbox

Kung Fu Panda 2 will be offering four distinctive ways to play – each with varying degrees of interactivity – including a Kinect version that gets players kicking and punching.

Kung Fu Panda 2 will be release alongside the film, which releases May 26, 2011. The game will be available on the PS3, Wii, DS, and Xbox 360 using Kinect.


Though it might not be high on the list of anticipated movie tie-in games, Kung Panda 2 has a chance to be a real standout with the ways in which it asks the player to interact. There will of course be your standard PS3 console version of Kung Fu Panda 2, but it is with the Wii and more importantly Kinect that players will be able to release their inner martial artist.

With Kung Fu Panda 2, THQ hopes to take a seemingly ordinary tie-in game and make it much more interactive by way of Microsoft Kinect. Not only will players be able to use Kinect to try and save kung fu, but they will also be training alongside the Dragon Warrior, Po.

hough there are four distinct ways in which to approach Kung Fu Panda 2 (each of which is detailed below), there is the main through line of Po’s quest to save Kung Fu. In each title players will take on the role of Po and work alongside the Furious Five in order to bring down the evil Lord Shen. Some versions of the game get players involved by way of stylus or controller use, but with Kinect, players get to stand up and become Po.

Essentially, by playing Kung Fu Panda 2 using Kinect, players will be able to punch, dodge, and block their way through the game, with Po delivering helpful feedback along the way. Through Kinect, Kung Fu Panda fans will be able to put themselves right into the events of the film — training and building strength on the road to awesomeness.



While playing Kung Fu Panda on the Kinect is perhaps the best way to experience the game, that doesn’t make it the only way. Wii users will be able to use THQ’s uDraw GameTablet and stylus to manipulate many of the game’s objects and characters. The uDraw tablet mechanic is almost like a riff on the formula that made Okami so popular. As players color in certain items on screen, those items will come to life and fight the enemies of the game. Of course, this game mechanic is only possible with the uDraw Game Tablet, so it’s best to secure one ahead of time.

Keeping with the stylus theme, Kung Fu Panda 2 on the DS, like the other games, will follow along with the film’s storyline, but will also be featuring a unique card game. Titled ‘Five-Card Fu,’ this card game is a simple concept — whichever player lands on the highest cell in a 3x3 grid wins — that provides yet another way for gamers to get their Kung Fu Panda fix.

With four different ways in which to play Kung Fu Panda 2, THQ is taking the Kung Fu Panda property to the next level. There might be more conventional options for casual gamers, like the PS3 offering, but there are also more interactive options that help the player feel more like Po and the Furious Five.

Which of the four gameplay styles Kung Fu Panda 2 offers sounds the most appealing to you? Are you interested in punching and kicking with Po?

JailBreak iPod Touch 4G/3G/2G iOS 4.2.1Win and iPad iOS 4.3.3 Mac

Apple iPod Touch 4G was Jailbroken the next day it started shipping. A new bootrom exploit was found which has been named SHAtter. It enables Hackers to bring tools which will tether jailbreak iPod Touch 4G for the rest of its current hardware cycle.

Jailbreaking is a real "Thriller" and it adds very much functionality to your iPod. It is also very unlikely that anything will go wrong and if it does you can easily fix it with Cydia free tool.


iPod Touch 4G Jailbreak Benefits and Advantages

The most prominent benefit in case of iPod Touch 4G is that you can install a bunch of USEFUL apps which are not officially supported by Apple because of its extreme unfriendly control over App Store. Furthermore, it is no longer illegal to jailbreak iPod Touch 4G as DMCA has made it legal but it may still void your warranty which is a rare chance.

iPod Touch 4G Jailbreak Disadvantages and Risk Factor

There are lot of people curious about the disadvantages or risks involved in jailbreaking the iPhone or iPod Touch, before they actually decide to do that.

Well, there is a very very slim chance that you can brick your iPhone or iPod Touch. Which basically means rendering it unresponsive. But those are usually fixed by doing a reset (press and hold the home and sleep buttons at the same time). You can then reinstall the firmware and try again.

Doing the research might set you back 20 minutes or so and the whole process might take another 15 minutes. If you ever take it back to Apple for warranty, you probably don’t want them to see that you’ve jailbroken it so you might spend another 10 minutes doing a firmware restore through iTunes to set your iPhone or iPod Touch back to its original settings.

ASUS Transformer Review: Buy ASUS Eee Pad or Xoom or Galaxy?
ASUS Transformer is is a quite good, brown color and texturized surface Android 3.0 Tablet, despite of its Laptop Like Looks. It has 1024px 10 inches display with an nVidia Tegra 2 Processor inside. It has almost 10hrs Battery Life.

ASUS Eee Pad lacks the 3G connectivity at the moment which will be available in next coming model. It has a built in HDMI port. This hybrid gadget can rightfully claim to be one of the best tablets in the market so far, with far beutiful looks than the bulky Xoom and a price cheaper than Samsung Galaxy Tablet.


The tablet computers that compete with the iPad have mostly been uninspiring. The Eee Pad Transformer stands out with a design that isn't just copied from the iPad: It's a tablet that turns into a laptop.

ASUS Transformer Review: Buy ASUS Eee Pad or Xoom or Galaxy?

For $399, $100 cheapest than iPad, you get a tablet computer with a 10-inch screen and hardware that doesn't cut corners. It's fully usable on its own. For another $149, you can buy a keyboard that connects to the tablet. Together, they look and open like a small laptop.

The Transformer is made by Asustek Computer Inc, the Taiwanese company that started the brief "netbook" craze a few years ago by selling small, inexpensive laptops. With the keyboard attached, the Transformer is nearly indistinguishable from a netbook

With around 150$ you can get a nice keyboard for your Asus tablet and really transform it! The keyboard is complete, having 'Back', 'Home', 'Search', 'Menu', volume buttons, Wi-fi. You also have a trackpad with scroll via multitouch and an USB port to connect other devices.

The ASUS Transformer  Eee Pad keyboard may sound a bit expensive for $149, but it does more than help with typing. It has a track pad with "mouse buttons," just as you'd find on a laptop. It also contains an extra battery that charges the tablet's battery, two USB ports for connecting peripherals and a slot for SD memory cards, used in most digital cameras.

The Transformer has two slots for the keyboard to lock into, forming a sturdy whole that's easy to use on a lap or tummy, for those really lazy moments on the couch.

There's another nice thing about the Transformer keyboard: The keys are designed for the software. There are keys that bring you to the Home screen and Settings. Others control screen brightness, volume and media playback. There are buttons for the Back and Menu functions of Google's Android software.

In comparison with ASUS Transformer, The iPad doesn't make any particular accommodation for a keyboard. The accessory ones connect using short-range Bluetooth wireless technology, which can be a hassle to connect and troubleshoot. It also means the keyboards need separate batteries - Apple's own model uses two AAs. The battery in the Asus keyboard doesn't need to be charged for the keyboard to work, and in any case, it uses the same charger as the tablet.

Most iPad keyboards don't attach to the tablet itself, because there's nothing to hang on to. This is fine if you're at a table, but juggling an iPad and a separate keyboard on your lap can be difficult. Some iPad keyboards are built into a case, which covers the tablet and forms a laptop-like unit, though an inelegant one.

The ASUS Transformer Battery Life has been tested by playing a high-definition video over and over again, with the screen set to medium brightness. It gave almost 9+ hours from the tablet alone and 13 hours with the keyboard attached. That compares with 10 hours for the iPad 2.

The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Display Screen uses the same technology as the iPad's, making it easy to read from any angle and in any orientation. It is slightly larger than the iPad's and has a slightly higher resolution.

The ASUS Transformer tablet weighs 0.68 kg and has a rear 5MP camera that allows you to take picture with it, even if for some this can be quite uncomfortable. You can get the 16 GB version for 399$.

The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Camera quality is so-so but more than adequate for videoconferencing through Google Talk. The Transformer has two cameras, as we expect from this year's tablets.

But before you get too excited about the prospect of a Laptop-Tablet Hybrid that combines the best of both worlds, please bear in mind that it runs Google Android software, originally designed for smartphones. That means it doesn't run full-blown Windows programs or connect to peripherals such as scanners. This isn't all a bad thing, as Android comes with important advantages, such as a long battery life, programs designed for touch input and a computer that comes to life almost immediately when you open the lid.

This isn't the first time we've seen small laptops running Android, but it is the first time ASUS Transformer  runs Honeycomb, the first Android version specifically designed for tablets rather than smartphones. The update makes Android much better at taking advantage of a 10-inch screen.
But as tablet software, Android is still far behind Apple's iOS software for the iPad. The biggest problem is the low quality and poor selection of applications from outside companies. Many of my favorite iPad apps, including Netflix and The Wall Street Journal are not available at all. Others, such as The New York Times, are available only in inferior versions, designed for the smartphone screen rather than the tablet.

I also had frequent crashes when using the applications. The Transformer is perhaps the best Android tablet out there, especially considering the price, but the software is still a major weakness. Still, the beautifully integrated keyboard should tempt people who don't want to decide between a tablet and a laptop.
