As smaller tablets like the Nexus 7 and the iPad mini have gained traction, we knew it was only a matter of time before these became a more popular breed among different platforms and OEMs. Microsoft’s answer to this new market is Windows 8.1, though Redmond’s strategy was to bring us more powerful tablets by allowing us to use a full desktop operating system on an 8-inch tablet. Both Dell and Toshiba have pioneered this market with their inexpensive offerings late last year, but none of these companies offered us a really powerful business tablet, as Lenovo claims to do so [...]
This has been a year full of believers and non-believers in a Nokia that would ever build a tablet. The world has been full of rumors, but it took the company so long to actually make those rumors true, that even some of the believers began losing faith, and specially when the words “Windows RT” were included in the mix. Still, the product is now a reality, and we can’t wait to give it a try.
As expected, the Lumia 2520 looks like a bloated Lumia smartphone, though it packs a 10-inch 1080p display that boasts brightness at an impressive 650 nits under Gorilla [...]
Samsung may be the king of smartphones, but every single time they’ve launched a tablet in the past, I cringe. You can bet they’ve made me cringe continuously as well, since I’ve lost count of the amount of Galaxy tablets in the market. Some people argue that the only reason why Samsung sells so many smartphones is because of their marketing, and even though there’s a high level of accuracy to that remark, that’s not as easy as you think. If the product is not good, customers have a window of return, and we do know a ton of cases of people that have [...]

I was given this assignment at the beginning of the week by my colleague Michael Fisher. And I was excited about it. I totally get it. That would be awesome! My mind instantly started thinking of the possibilities. I thought of the YotaPhone. I thought of low power consumption. I thought of Netflix. All in one device!
This is a killer idea.One device to rule them all
Imagine hefting your Kindle Fire and firing up Netflix. You watch another episode of House of Cards. Kevin Spacey is killing it. [...]
I’ve always been a huge fan of the Matrix Trilogy, and I’m sure many of you are as well. There’s one thing I always remember the Oracle telling Neo when things began to get rough, and it was: “Everything that has a beginning must have an end”. And it’s true, regardless of where you heard the phrase, it’s a fact of life that what goes up, must come down at some point. It happened to Apple in the early 80s, to IBM early last decade, to HP just a couple of years ago, to Palm in that same time period, Nokia, you name it.
It’s hard to [...]
