The legendary SkyPad has become a fixture of the channel's punditry over the last couple of years, with Gary Neville championing the technology and was rumoured to have one in his house.
SkyPad: Size & build
While the SkyPad moniker suggests that Gary Neville's beloved tablet is an integrated all-in-one device, the reality is a mass of wires and it's a lot bigger than it looks on TV.
Believe it or not, the SkyPad shuns iOS, Android or Linux in favour of a Windows operating system. The software is outsourced to third party developers who tweak the features and settings for the individual needs of each sport. Therefore, football, cricket and F1 have completely different features.
The screen itself is a 1080i 1,920 x 1,080 panel with a contrast ratio of 3000:1, with a 6ms response time which is actually about average for a modern touchscreen monitor.

SkyPad: Usability and performance
Despite the SkyPad being a Windows PC in all but name, there's no hint of an Intel Core processor in sight. In fact, there's no processor or box on the studio floor whatsoever, and the grunt is handled by two server racks filled with 10 HP X820 processors and stacks of Bluefish video cards.
Battery life is extremely poor, given the SkyPad's total reliance on the mains, however portability woes don't end there.
Overall, the SkyPad is an excellent tool, although it's impossible to rival the likes of the iPad 4 or Sony Xperia Tablet Z for portability. While the iPad weighs 650g, the SkyPad's 7000g makes it hard to recommend.
