Colour Tablets in The Sunshine?

| Friday, September 28, 2012 | |

Looking to buy a new tablet device, but have you considered screen glare in the sunshine? Although we might have waved goodbye to the summer for this year, if you are jetting off for a winter sun break in the next few months or just anticipating a good summer next year, you might like to consider choosing a tablet with a screen that is easy to see in the sunshine.  What is the point of having a portable PC if you can’t make the most of a sunny day? Here we look at a few tablet PCs that use the newest screen technology to allow you to enjoy them without having to contend with screen glare.

Sol Tablet PC

This is a very reliable Windows 7 tablet, which has a 10.1 inch display; launched in 2011, it is made to go anywhere. Built using Pixel Qi’s sunlight readable display technology, you can be guaranteed that wherever you use Sol’s Tablet PC – even when in direct sunlight - you can expect to see its exceptional high resolution display in front of you. As the screen is now powered by its light source, the battery consumption of the tablet is greatly reduced, so you can look forward to 10 hours between charges. The tablet also offers a 1.3 MP webcam.

Inboxpad VQ A8388

This Android tablet also has a 10.1 inch display using Pixel Qi technology. It does however have a glossy screen, so while you will be able to read the screen, you are likely to still experience some glare when using it in ambient light. While the Inboxpad also sports a camera, don’t expect too much from it, as it only offers 0.3 MP images. Although it might seem an expensive purchase for a tablet that uses a 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor and for its level of RAM and storage (512MB and 4GB respectively), compared to other tablets that possess the same Pixel Qi technology it is one of the cheapest available. If you particularly want an Android tablet to use outside this isn’t a bad choice at all. It is also a good option for anyone who is looking to use it to read e-books or online newspapers – where a longer battery life is of greater importance than a good depth of color; switching off the backlight on its Pixel Qi screen reduces its power usage by around 80%, while changing from full colour to almost black and white.

Evigroup PadPro

This 10 inch tablet uses Windows 7 as its operating system. Using the same Pixel Qi technology in its screen as the other tablets here, it is excellent for outdoors use. One of its selling features is its pressure sensitive screen and complete with stylus is the perfect choice for those who want to use their tablet device for graphics work. It has a great level of storage (160GB), ideal to save all the images you have created.

InHand Hydra-T3 Tablet

With the capability to run Android 2.3, Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows Embedded Compact 6, this 7 inch tablet, also has a battery life of 10 hours. The Pixel Qi LCD screen allows it to be used in direct sunlight and it also has an automatic brightness control. The Hydra-3 also features a 5 MP camera, microphone, output for a stereo speaker and vibration for use in haptic technology. This is a very durable tablet, having been tested to military specifications for the likes of temperature and immersion. It is aimed for use in an industrial, medical or military setting, which is reflected in its price tag.
