At CES this year, Tactus demonstrated the first tactile touchscreen implemented on a standard android tablet. They use a technology called “micro-fluidics” to raise and lower the buttons. Not necessarily game changing as it only offers a preset tactile keyboard but is still really cool nonetheless. Here is an older video from Tactus describing this technology. No hardware partners announced but they expect to ship the first tactile touchscreen phone later this year.

Cannot wait for these to be released. The Nexus 4 is a pentaband phone with 4.2 Jelly Bean and wireless charging. The Nexus 10 also runs 4.2 and has the highest pixel density of any tablet available right now. Anyone shopping for a smartphone or tablet definitely have some tough decisions to make.

The Kindle Fire HD looks really awesome. Sadly, it and the services that Amazon offers are not available in Canada. This is where the Kobo Arc comes in. Weighing in at 7 inches with Android ICS (upgradeable to Jelly Bean soon after release), the Arc is sure to make an impact on the Canadian ebook/tablet market.

Woot woot! Looks like the Nexus tablet is available for order. This is probably the best tablet for the money available right now. The 8gb is priced at $209 and comes with a $25 credit for Google Play. It runs Jelly Bean (4.1), uses a 7 inch IPS display, and is quad core! Best of all, it has a battery life rated at 8 hours with active use. Asus is the maker of this tablet and it is rumoured that a 10 inch model will come out later this year. Let the tablet wars begin!
