    Although Samsung has been dabbling in mammoth-sized tablets aimed at home entertainment, 2-in-1 Windows hybrids, and 7-inch Android “phoneblets” of late in its efforts to revive a dying niche, that doesn’t mean traditional 7 and 10-inch Galaxy Tabs have breathed their last. For some reason, it just took the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016) a little while to spread from the old continent to America, finally opening official US pre-orders this past weekend, and promising to ship in “7-10 business days.” Not exactly following in the footsteps of the high-end, Super AMOLED ...

    While most analysts and pundits deem 2-in-1 convertibles as the only possible saving grace and potential-brimming form factor for otherwise flagging tablets, there’s likely one more move Samsung for instance could try to pull to keep Galaxy Tabs in the limelight. It’s something various Chinese device manufacturers have experimented with in the past, enjoying little success, as consumers found it uncomfortable to make and receive voice calls on gargantuan gadgets. But we’re hearing whispers the above rendered Galaxy J Max measures a whopping 7 inches in screen diagonal, nonetheless ...

    Samsung doesn’t appear very keen on releasing new Android tablets anymore, following a global trend that favors 2-in-1 Windows convertibles all of a sudden. High-end Galaxy Tabs in particular aren’t going anywhere, while a few mid-rangers remain relatively popular on US carriers like Verizon and AT&T thanks primarily to their super-low prices. What’s perhaps even more surprising to see is the 8-inch Galaxy Tab E’s manufacturer committed to delivering timely software updates, at least on Big Red. Granted, with Android Nougat just unveiled and literally right around the corner, a ...

    It’s rarely a good idea to debut controversial, experimental technology such as a new form of biometric authentication on a flagship consumer product like the upcoming Galaxy Note 6, so let’s not act surprised that Samsung is essentially test-driving iris recognition on a much smaller scale with the Galaxy Tab Iris. This is, well, a pretty crappy overall 7-incher made in India for India, aimed primarily at enterprise and government use, with integration of various local identification, banking, finance, education and citizen services. Courtesy of a dual-eye scanner, the Samsung Galaxy ...

    Craving for an LTE-enabled Android tablet with support for America’s largest wireless network, but feel the Galaxy Tab S2 is a little on the expensive side, while the LG G Pad X8.3 fails to hit the sweet spot as far as display size goes? Then the just-released Samsung Galaxy Tab E should fit you perfectly, given it’s large yet not uncomfortably so, at 9.6 inches, plus fairly affordable. With two-year Verizon pacts, the 5.1 Lollipop-powered slate costs $130, and 200 extra bucks buy you the Tab E free of contractual obligations. That’s a whopping $270 south of both on and off-contract ...

    When I was a baby I had a blanket that my mother always covered me with when I slept. I ran my fingers over one corner until it was literally threadbare. Call it OCD or a sensory disorder, that habit apparently stuck with me. When my daily driver was a Nexus 4, with it's gently curved sides, I often found myself sweeping my thumb from side to side across the screen. Thankfully the Gorilla Glass 2 was harder than my baby blanket and didn't show a wear-mark from that habit. Most OEMs never adopted anything more than very slightly curved edges. Now, however, Samsung has brought back ...

    Tablets may have been around for years by now, but the companies manufacturing them are still trying to get a handle on what sizes we're really interested in. While the past couple years have seen growing interest in smaller tablets, leading to the release of devices like the iPad mini, we've also see growth on the opposite end of the spectrum, as OEMs experiment with larger and larger slates. Earlier this year, Samsung released a pair of 12.2-inch models, and now a new leak suggests it could push things even bigger, with the development of a 13.3-inch tablet in the works. There's not much ...

    Let’s face it, tablets aren’t perfect. We’ve had numerous editorials talking about it, and we don’t think twice about pointing these imperfections out in our reviews. Surely in life nothing is perfect, but there are surely those companies that try harder, and those that don’t. There are companies that’ll charge you the same amount of money for lesser quality products than others, and there are those that would rather lose a premium in oder to sell you what you paid for. Now that said, tablets aren’t new. We’ve used them for over a decade, and it’s interesting to note that ...

    I know: that's a bait-y headline that begs for qualifiers, and we'll get to those in just a second. Before that, though, I'd like to apologize to those who've been waiting for our full review of the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0. For those of you who've gotten lost in the avalanche of news since we took delivery on our own Tab 3 8.0 review unit, we unboxed the device a few weeks back - and then we immediately put it up against its closest Samsung-branded competitor, the Galaxy Note 8.0. We promised a review on the heels of that comparison, but then something significant happened: a Nokia Lumia 1020 ...

    If you've had your ear to the ground over the past day or so, you know the Galaxy Note 8.0 is all but assured a grand unveiling at MWC 2013 in Barcelona next month. Sources say the tablet will come with a 5MP rear-facing camera, probably some form of Exynos processor, and -of course- an 8-inch display with a rumored 1280x800 resolution. That's not all that exciting on the surface: we've seen those specs, or variations thereon, spread across many devices already. But bundling them together inside one chassis, especially one bearing the prestigious Note sub-brand, is exciting. Samsung is no ...

    After ruling that Samsung's tablet was not as cool as the iPad, the U.K. court considered that a proper way to compensate the South Korean manufacturer was, among others things, for Apple to post a message which publicly clears Samsung of any accusations that it copied the iPad’s design. The fruit-company has managed to score a stay in the case, at least until October, when Apple can be heard in front of the court. Those of you who hoped to see a huge "Samsung did not copy us" message while going to Apple's website will have to wait a little bit more, at least until the beginning of Q4. ...

    Source: Baggetta_Ware TeacherTech It's one thing to read a story and quite another to interact with it. Baggetta_Ware has created a series of electronic books that help students of literature and other serious readers do the later. Each of these books contain not only the full text of the book but also puzzles, study guides, and questions. Baggetta_Ware has already released several of these "interactive books" for desktop systems but they've recently began a parallel line for Pocket PCs. Each interactive book has a free downloadable demo version which has a limited selection of the text ...
