    Okay, so Huawei is doing the Nexus again. We've been told that before and have been loathe to believe it given that the rumor pile stuck HTC with the two-phone Pixel job. But Huawei still had a trademark on the "7P," so, even if there was no fire, the smoke's still up. And with Evan Blass passing along the idea of a Google-branded tablet in 2016, we might as well start talking specs, if only to get an idea of what we're dealing with. Huawei Blog out of Germany has compiled some figures from its sources in China and the very blurry, very doubtful picture we have so far seems plain and ...

    Laptop? Sure. Tablet? You bet. Touchy screen? We're all keen. And with a price of only $399, we'd say that such a Chromebook has met its time. The Acer Chromebook R13 is the Taiwanese OEM's first such device to have the Google Play Store — you may know of that on cross-country competitor ASUS's Chromebook Flip — straight from the box and the first to sport a MediaTek chip for the device class (a quad-core M8173C CorePilot unit, if you're wondering). The 13.3-inch IPS touchscreen is rated at full HD resolution and comes below a 720p webcam. Talking memory, there's 4GB of RAM standard ...

    Asus set a high standard for android tablets, and alongside new Transformers, they also revealed the new ZenPad 3S 10. Not the most graceful name, but a sleek slate built around high quality media consumption. This 9.7” screen is housed in an aluminum frame with some tiny bezels bordering that screen, and a 78% screen to body ratio. That 2k display clocks in at a resolution of 2048 x 1536. It's sleek, it's shiny, and Asus thinks it's the right recipe for you music and movie junkies. The ZenPad 3S 10 aims to do battle with Apple and Samsung with a high quality screen and premium ...

    Hey! Want a 4K Android or Windows 10 Mobile tablet with a 21-megapixel camera on the back and a 13-megapixel selfie shooter? How about front facing speakers? 802.11 ad Wi-Fi (utilizing 60GHz band streams)? Temperature sensor, heart rate sensor, all kinds of go-okay, you've read the headline, let's cut to the chase. If you're really into hacking things up for your own personal gain, go ahead and see if you can pick up Qualcomm's new Mobile Development Platform Smartphone and/or Tablet. Both are run by a Snapdragon 820 with all the goodies inside of it — the Adreno 520 GPU and the Hexagon ...

    Slab tablets don't have much luster these days. But Samsung does know how to shine in this category, so it may as well keep the counter up with another Galaxy Tab S release. And it seems that the Tab S3 launch won't be too far off from a refresh of Galaxy Tab S2 models. That's according to Eldar Murtazin of Russia's mobile-review.com, a source of some tasty hit or miss leaks. September 1 - Tab S3 ;) видимо так и будет — Eldar Murtazin (@eldarmurtazin) July 19, 2016 The Russian text reads, as translated by Google, "and [it] probably will." A good notch of confidence from ...

    I know what you're thinking, "Huawei made a Windows 10 tablet PC?" It's true, the brand isn't well known for making Windows PCs, but apparently the burgeoning 2-in-1 tablet PC market is too attractive to avoid grabbing for a piece of that pie. The Android and iOS tablet market has gone into decline and there really isn't much of an opportunity for growth in those segments anymore. However, the tablet PC 2-in-1 market... especially those devices running the full Windows desktop operating system has seen a 73% year over year increase. That's the fastest growing tech device market right now ...

    Want a different take on the Microsoft Surface 3? Huawei introduced one earlier this year with its MateBook. Since February, the products made its trek around the world. It's only now crawled back around to the US for a launch here. Hardware-wise, Huawei's crafted an 6.9mm thick aluminium chassis to hold in a 12-inch IPS LCD at 2160 x 1440 display with viewable angles through 160 degrees of rotation. Windows Hello takes advantange of dual array of microphpones and a side-mounted fingerprint reader. A 33.7Wh battery should get you through a nine-hour day. Intel's 6th generation Core M ...

    The Chromebook Flip got first dibs on a windowed Android apps experience today, but if you've been working with a Remix Mini, Remix Ultra or cracking Remix OS onto a PC, you already have an idea of how this works. Maybe it's time to upgrade your hardware game? Jide thought it was time to up its game with the Remix Pro, a mid-range convertible tablet with a Snapdragon 652, 3GB of RAM and a quick-chargeable 9Ah battery. The screen's 12 inches in diameter with a resolution of 2160 x 1440, 216 pixels per inch. There's 802.11 a/b/g, but no n, though it is dual-band on 2.4 and 5GHz. Hardware ...

    The old guard is going away. The Nexus Player just left the Google Store and the Nexus 9 left not long before that. Now we know that HTC is completely done with its own-made tablet as well. The company has said to CNET that it has ended its manufacturing run of the Nexus 9 and has a limited number available at its site. Indeed, all but the white 16GB version are still there on HTC's site as of this post. After several Hot Deal Tuesdays that had the slab discounted by hundreds of dollars, you'll still have to pay full price for these products. Will this clear the way for HTC to possibly ...

    NVIDIA has made attempts to deepen gaming fervor in the mobile ecosystem with its series of Android-based SHIELD gaming tablets and it has done so to limited success. But with gaming topping app markets in downloads and revenue, there still has to be some gold to dig for, right? Maybe Razer wants to take a crack at it. It's made an Android TV, it's made a smartwatch, why not another mobile device? CEO Min-Liang Tan tweeted out an open position that might tell that story. We're looking for a Product Developer (Mobile) to join Team Razer! For Gamers. By Gamers. https://t.co/qgOHFo3NA2 #job ...

    Seriously, why hasn't this happened yet? If you don't know what I mean by an x86 phone, all PCs, Macs, most Linux servers, and Windows tablets run on x86 compatible architectures making it easier for software to evolve over time with lots of backwards compatibility. Most Android, iOS, and Windows Phone devices run on ARM compatible architectures which can't run the same software as all of the other PCs of the world. The x86 architecture has grown and been refined over the years to keep up with modern technology since its introduction in 1978. It's time for this architecture to take over on ...

    The crowd. It's vast. It's thoughtful. And it's ready to give its money to something they think is worthwhile. We covered Finnish startup Eve a short while ago as the team there has been pulling together a good-sized forum and asking them what they would like to see out of a 2-in-1 Windows tablet. Everything from the kickstand to the processor to the keyboard and inclusion of a stylus was laid out on the table. But the company has decided to play coy for the day, teasing the six designs that it in association with Swedish design firm Propeller have come up with. Pictures of each of the ...

    PCs are dying. Tablets are dying. Everything's horrible, the end. Well, not quite. While computer manufacturers have come into consolidating company and the tablet market is getting a little flabby, combining Windows and tablets together might equal success in the future. As long as you can take the keyboard out of the equation, that is. IDC is forecasting another fall in global tablet shipments for this year, down 5.9 percent to 195 million devices. But it seems that the detachable devices segment (the Surface Pro-likes and strive-to-bes) will drive future growth, said to be in the single ...

    It would want your money, sooner or later, but until then, it wants you (yes, you) to choose what exactly goes into its latest project. You might have heard of Jolla — struggling to survive as it is — and PuzzlePhone — which only got 46 percent of its Indiegogo funding goal. Those two startups represent a good snapshot of Finland's tech scene right now: still ailing, but very much alive. If you play Clash of Clans, you have Finland's Supercell to thank. Nokia's also pushing patience with its comeback to the mobile hardware industry. And then there's Microsoft, still cutting jobs ...

    Everyone seems to have a Windows 10 tablet out on the market these days. We saw a glut back at CES — a glut Alcatel was a part of — but for MWC, the newly re-christened company has decided to step up its offerings with a convertible tablet called the PLUS 10. That "10" tells of a 10-inch LCD at 1280 x 800 resolution. It's paired with two front-facing speakers (with "3D sound") as both stand as a hallmark of the intended multimedia experience. A quad-core processor powers the device with 32GB of storage, expandable by SD card. The 8,410mAh battery is believed to last an eight-hour day ...

    There are ups and downs to be had in the tablet market. Unfortunately, the long-range outlook is still down. Digitimes tracked several US-based tablet sellers and has recorded over 65.3 million shipments during the holiday quarter with Apple's iPad Air 2 chipping in 16.1 million units alone. The whole pie represents a 24 percent increase from Q3, but a 14 percent drop year-over-year. 29 million non-iPads from major brands were checked out, 6 percent better over last year. Amazon's Fire 7 stole share away from ODMs which turned their focus towards Windows 10 tablets instead. Huawei's sales ...

    All glorious 18.4 inches could be yours for the low, low price of... Well, if $549 wasn't good enough for you, you probably wouldn't shell $499 or go to AT&T to find room on your kitchen countertop or fridge for the Samsung Galaxy View at this price. Amazon, Best Buy and B&H have all taken down the tablet's price to $449. Just remember that this device would better serve those who love to binge watch something on their mobile phones, but would rather have the phone stand up by itself and be large enough to be seen from a distance of at least three feet. At least we've got stereo ...

    Well, that took long enough. At the start of February, NVIDIA has made good on its promise to update its original Shield gaming tablet after upgrading the Shield K1 just before Christmas. Everything gets a refresh from wallpapers to new HD Image Effects and all of the stock goodies Android Marshmallow provides. With gaming apps taking a whole lot of space, the integrated SD card storage feature of 6.0 should really help here. Wi-Fi only tablets will see what's dubbed "Upgrade 4.0" soon while the version with US LTE antennas will need a few weeks' of extra work. Source: NVIDIA (1, 2) Via: ...

    HTC doesn't often make tablets — in fact, it's only made two. One of them (the HTC Flyer, pictured above) was fine, the other not so much. There's been a contingent in the mobile tech community that keeps looking forward to a great big lovely slab from Taiwan. The company may be putting out another one soon, though it may not excite the power users. And it may not end up existing. We're looking at a budget tablet that had rumors stretching back to May of last year. But we now have GFXBench diagnostics and an import listing from Indian database Zauba. The low-end Spreadtrum processor, ...

    Is the iPad Pro a personal computing replacement? Will spending at least $1,067 for a tablet, keyboard and stylus as opposed to an 11-inch MacBook Air with an accessory or two really make sense? Why not consider a Microsoft Surface? Well, it depends on your way of thinking when it comes to tablets and laptops. Microsoft's Senior Communications Manager for Surface Dan Laycock spoke to TrustedReviews about his company's line and where he believes Apple stands. // d;d++)c[d].apply(u,n);return u}function a(t,e){f[t]=s(t).concat(e)}function s(t){return f[t]||[]}function c(){return n(e)}var ...

    Samsung wants to put out professional-grade tablets to the market and it wants people to buy them. This year, that means kicking out its Android and TouchWiz and moving in full-blown Windows 10. The Samsung TabPro S steps away from the ATIV and Galaxy Tab brands to launch into what seems to be a very crowded field these CES days: versatile Windows tablets. A 6.3mm-thick magnesium alloy chassis holds in a 5,200mAh battery, 4GB of RAM, a solid state drive (128GB or 256GB) and an Intel Core M3 processor. Not bad on most counts, but further review is required on our end. With the Super AMOLED ...

    It's a mouthful of a title, but it's mouthful of a tablet. And an earful. And ... well, you'll see. CES 2016 has been an interesting space for Huawei to extend its branches. It announced a couple of phones and a couple of smartwatches, but it also announced a tablet. A premium design tablet. Color us shocked. Want more premium? How about some iPad Pro-esque speakers? Four of them, with harmon/kardon enhancements. It's not a surprise Huawei's pushing this aspect center stage. And why not, throw on an digitized stylus, too: that M-Pen might just be perfect for some limited split-screen ...

    It's been a slow rollover in the personal computing world from disparate terminals and screens and mice and dongles to a more civilized and tidy tablet form factor. Convertible laptops coming out of Lenovo, VAIO and Microsoft are definitely a good sign of things to come. It turns out that Toshiba wants to get in on the consumer end, too. It's introducing the dynaPad, a 12-inch full HD tablet running on Windows 10. The screen make-up is a sandwich of Gorilla Glass 3 panes and a sensor mesh, topped off with an oleophobic coating to combat against nasty fingerprints. That display is housed ...

    Alcatel OneTouch has thrown some interesting takes on hardware and software onto the market. One of the best mid-range smartphones of 2015? The Idol 3. Native screen video capture? The Go Play. A nose-to-the-grindstone budget Android tablet? The Pixi 3 (8), released last March. A nose-to-the-grindstone budget Windows tablet? Wait, what? Windows 10 Mobile gets to stretch its hamstrings with not only a lunge at a large screen, but a reach down to a barebones spec sheet. With a Snapdragon 210 and 1GB of RAM, how will the Alcatel OneTouch Pixi 3 (8) with Windows 10 Mobile make do with eight ...

    We've been on-and-off on what this Pixel C tablet has been about. For Google, the Chromebook Pixel-offshoot represents several things: its first original manufacturing push, its psuedo-Nexus tablet entry for 2015 — a convertible one at that — and its developer showcase for what Android can do on large canvasses. Whatever went into this tablet, we're all now about to witness it. The Google Store now has the 32GB variant Pixel C up for sale starting at $499. The 64GB version costs $100 more. A standard keyboard attachment and a folio keyboard are selling for $150 each. The all-aluminium ...
