Surface tablet revenue just $853m Microsoft reveals

Microsoft made $853m in revenue from Surface tablets in its 2013 fiscal year, a disappointing figure that failed to even cover the company's $900m inventory adjustment charge for the poorly selling Surface RT.

It's not every day that you see two tablet leaks in one day with the same processor under the hood - but that's just what's happened with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 in this afternoon's appearance of the fabled Nokia tablet. This tablet works with code-name Nokia RX-114 and likely runs either full Windows 8 or Windows RT, pushing with it the same processor we saw appear on this morning's reboot of the Kindle Fire.

Nexus 7 2013 Review

Nexus 7 2013 Review

The original Nexus 7 arguably marked a turning point in Android tablets, Google finally doing what critics had long been demanding, and wading into the slate market with an own-brand option. With a screen size that undercut the iPad by several inches - and pre-empted the iPad mini by several months - the Nexus 7 also fought hard on price, with razer-thin margins and ruthless specification trimming on the ASUS-made tablet keeping the starting point at under $200. Time - and tablets - wait for no one, though, and with the iPad mini on the scene it was high time for Google and ASUS to rework the Nexus 7. The second-generation, 2013 version promises to be more powerful, more grown-up, and just as affordable, but has Google done enough? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Nexus 7 did not outsell iPad in Japan according to IDC

Earlier this year it was claimed by several news sources, then quoted again just this month by Google, that the Nexus 7 outsold the iPad in Japan in the fourth quarter of 2012. This assertion comes from a report by market research firm BCN, as quoted by Nikkei and re-published by several publications since early this year. Here after Google repeated the claim at their Nexus 7 reboot event, a bit more information on BCN's study has come to light - as have some rather contradictory numbers from research firm IDC.

Samsung Nexus 10 reboot: what to expect

Now that we've seen the boosts in the change-over from Nexus 7's original iteration to its reboot, and have heard Google confirm that Samsung will be taking command on a second Nexus 10, it's high time we went hunting for the build on this next-generation companion to the smaller tablet. While virtual ink on the announcement for the Nexus 7 isn't even really dry yet, it having been announced less than 24 hours ago (if you don't count the leaks), a new version of this tablet's 10.1-inch tablet companion can be given a run-down based on what we've seen from ASUS, the maker of the smaller slate.

SlashGear 101: What is Chromecast?

SlashGear 101: What is Chromecast?

Google's Chromecast device is a Web media player, introduced by the company just a bit over a year after they first showed of a machine with very similar capabilities: the Nexus Q. Where the Nexus Q came into play as a bocce-ball-sized TV "box", Chromecast is the size of a USB dongle, small enough to fit in your pocket. It connects through a television's full-sized HDMI port and you'll be able to pull it up with the input button on your television remote, the same as you would a DVD player.

Nexus 10 refresh reportedly arriving in “near future”

The new Nexus 7 took all the glory during yesterday's Google event, but Android 4.3 and the new Chromecast were right up there alongside the new tablet. However, the Nexus 10 has been one of Google's least talked about products recently, and that almost has us forgetting that it even exists, but it seems Google is planning a refresh for the 10-inch slate very soon.

If you're getting ready to buy a brand new tablet on the smaller end of the spectrum and you're deciding between the new Nexus 7 and the iPad mini, you may very well be asking yourself the wrong question.
