Two of the hottest Windows-powered new machines of the fall, Toshiba’s Encore and Lenovo’s Miix 2 8-inch tablets, are now available via Amazon. However, only the latter can be actually had already, whereas the former is only up for pre-orders.
The Lumia 1520 launch has been pushed back to November 22, and the device will now launch alongside the Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet and the Xbox One.
The latest budget-conscious slate from Archos, dubbed 101 XS 2, looks to take on physical keyboard-toting hybrids such as Microsoft’s Surfaces and the Asus Transformer Pads or Transformer Book.
Say, do you by chance know what in the name of Android KitKat happened with the alleged Asus-made second-generation Nexus 10? I mean, all the signs pointed to the big guy chaperoning the Nexus 5 on its way to store shelves, yet the 10-incher is still not official.
The Ellipsis 7 is the first tablet that is sold with Verizon branding, and will be available from November 7 for $250 outright or $150 on a two-year contract.
After getting the teardown treatment a few days ago, Apple’s hottest, slimmest, coolest and possibly most popular large iPad ever, the one dubbed Air, has been evaluated by research firm IHS at its true value.
You didn’t really think Apple was going to let Samsung “get away” with the latest Galaxy Note 12.2-centric rumor avalanche, did you? Not when the alleged “iPad Maxi” has gone hand in hand with the largest ever GNote for many months now.
Not many believed in Nokia’s tablet prospects, since the Finns decided to wager on Microsoft’s sinking Windows RT platform, but, believe it or not, the Lumia 2520 is destined to get a wingman as soon as “early 2014”.
It’s no longer a mystery in many ways smaller, more portable tablets are doing better than “full-sized” 10-inchers, at least as far as the Android landscape is concerned, but what is the perfect size after all? Is it seven inches a la Google’s Nexus 7?
Apple’s iPad Air has been ripped apart by the teardown specialists over at iFixit, and the results aren’t the least bit surprising.
We didn’t really need further confirmation a larger than before 12-inch Samsung Galaxy Note was in the works, what with it making the Bluetooth SIG and benchmarking rounds a couple of days ago, but any info that can help fully solve the puzzle is welcomed.
It all started with Amazon’s Kindle Fire, which threatened Apple’s iPad with a dynamite blend of portability and affordability, but it only was after Google’s Nexus 7 intro that a solid smaller than 10-inch tablet niche was truly established.
Celebrity endorsement might have not helped HTC’s dwindling financials too much (mostly because the Taiwanese only made one commercial starring Robert Downey Jr.), but that’s not stopping Samsung from adding LeBron James to its already impressive partner roster.
It may not be the most anticipated tablet release of the fall (that honor goes to Google’s Nexus 10 2013 hands down), but Samsung’s Galaxy Note 12.2 is rounding up some decent buzz, following a photo leak back in September, subsequent Bluetooth SIG approval and now another.
The dust may still be far from settled in regards to Google’s Nexus 5 and Nexus 10 2013, which may or may not come out this week, but as the tech world continues to move, we can’t help but look towards the more distant future.
More bad news for Apple following the whole YouTube video “borrowing” without author consent debacle? It sure seems like it, as the inventor of both the Apple I and Apple II computers has confessed the freshly unveiled iPads failed to impress him.
With initial demand for Microsoft’s second-gen Surface tablets looking underwhelming (even by Surface standards) and increasing competition, including from the inside, it’s probably only a matter of time until the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 will get discounted.
We all knew this was coming. And not a moment too soon, it has. The ink is barely dry on Apple’s press releases announcing the new iPad Air and iPad mini 2 and Cupertino’s rivals have already come out swinging to defend their own tablet bids.
Ask and it will be given to you. It was only a few weeks ago that I expressed my incredulity towards an imminent second-gen Nexus 10 unveiling what with there being no actual photos of the device out and about and, voila, here’s the first render.
It’s a known fact Google likes to plan Nexus devices ahead of time, as they require quite a lot of work in order for those pricing sweet spots to be reached. All while not cutting too many corners.
