Sony has decided to dip its toes in the Windows 8 tablet game, and has announced the Vaio Tap 11, a tablet that looks designed to steal customers away from Microsoft’s Surface Pro.
When it rains, it pours. It was only 24 hours ago that we spotted the second-gen Microsoft Surface RT tab (likely to be called simply Surface 2) doing its benchmarking rounds with a Tegra 4 CPU inside, and we already have some scoop on its imminent Windows 8.1-powered counterpart.
The not-so-best-selling Galaxy Note 10.1 has been given a major upgrade with a 2014 Edition, announced by Samsung at the IFA along with the Galaxy Note III and Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

When it rains, it pours. Rumors of an Asus PadFone Infinity sequel were timidly floating around a couple of months ago, though there was no mention of such a thing in that leaked roadmap from early August, and now the mysterious gadget has at last exploded into the mainstream media.
And so it begins. Technically, we’re still a full week away from the IFA 2013 official kick-off. But since things are to get awfully crowded on the Berlin stage seven days from now, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that certain exhibitors are already starting to reveal their new products.
An unsurprising move following months of disappointing sales, price cuts for Microsoft’s Surface Pro and related products, are turning from temporary promotions to permanent slashes.
