'Get your laughing gear round our tablet' roar BT
Tablet computing is here to stay – it must be true because those renowned pioneers of white-hot technology at BT are getting involved. They’ve unveiled a new tablet device that they say is designed ONLY for the home. Presumably if it hits fresh air it’ll melt or something.
