Lenovo enters the tablet fray with the IdeaPad. (Not to be confused with iPad.)

You keep hearing about the tablet wars heating up, but for a while, Apple’s iPad seemed to be the only one that was on fire.

The iPad is great, no doubt, but it’s time to take a second look at some of the other new tablets entering the market. One that caught my eye is the Lenovo IdeaPad K1. I haven’t yet...

The joy of tablets: 6 former necessities a tablet replaces

This post is brought to you by our sponsor introducing the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Since my tablet has become a regular fixture in my everyday routine, I’ve found that life (and my handbag!) is sooo much simpler, streamlined and better organized.  Let’s just say that the more you use your tablet, you’ll find it becomes less of a luxury and more of a parenting essential. The tablet has replaced so many former necessary items and gadgets that I never could have imagined parting with–something I appreciate even more, now that I have four kids in tow. Here, 6...

Honestly, the majority of tablets that I saw did not match up to the ever popular iPad, in my book. But there are a few that stand out as serious contenders for moms who are coveting an iPad, but want to see what else is out there. Motorola Xoom Moms that want a fast browsing experience...

The Samsung Galaxy Tablet. AKA yes, there’s another tablet besides the iPad.

With everyone having iPad fever (myself included), I’ve been anxious to check out competition–the new Samsung Galaxy Tablet, which is the first android tablet on the market across all four phone carriers.

But on the other hand, as an iPad owner (and because it’s the only other tablet out there), well, it’s hard not to. After trying a loaner out for a couple of weeks, here are a few points of...
