New web browser for your tablet

Tablet devices appear to be the new laptops nowadays.  I say this because it seems an increasing number of dedicated tablet web browsers are being created.

For instance, OverSkreen is used on Android devices.  It apparently floats its web-windows on the top of the screen, which allows you to have more than one screen open at a time, just like the traditional computer.  I presume this Android app can be downloaded from the Android Market or Google’s new all-in-one site – Google Play

For the iPhone lover you can now get your photographs printed off at Tesco supermarket by making use of the latter’s cloud computing service.  All you need to do is download the application from Apple’s App Store for free and then take your stored images along to one of 120 participating Tesco stores.  You can even share the photos while getting them printed.

Tesco isn’t the only British store to get in on the iPhone phenomenon.  House of Fraser has now launched its own app that allows customers to browse over 1,000 designer brands.  There are even wish list and gift list features built into the app.  On top there is a store finder, plus the ability to scan products in the shop to find out more about the items.

For those who own a Roku set top box, you can now turn your Android smartphone into a remote control.  I have to say, I haven’t heard of Roku before so I am not sure if this is available for UK consumers.
