Google Play updated for Tablet-sized screenshots

Those of you working with a tablet in the Android universe know that it's been a long, hard road from the first Samsung Galaxy Tab. Here in 2013 we're finally about to see tablet-sized thumbnails for apps for the first time - before now, it was all teeny tiny smartphone-sized business. Just as soon as developer jump onboard and start delivering the shots, we'll be seeing the good stuff!

Nexus 9 Review: The iPad-Killer Blueprint

After a half-year on the market, the Nexus 9 remains one of the finest tablets available from any manufacturer. Like every Nexus device Google has ever offered, the HTC-made Nexus 9 was meant to be a blueprint - a benchmark for all other tablets. What we've done here is to take the Nexus 9 through the paces over a period of several months to give you an idea of what it's like to own this device for a real-life period of time, wear and tear included. Here we decide whether or not the Nexus 9 really should be considered the tablet you compare all other tablets to here and through the future.

BlackBerry Classic comes in white, three other devices leak

BlackBerry Classic comes in white, three other devices leak

BlackBerry seems to be cooking up a storm. The Canadian company isn't exactly swimming in gold, but it just barely survived sinking to its demise. Now, BlackBerry might be gearing up for an onslaught of new devices, including one that has been teased with a sliding keyboard, much to the fascination and excitement of some BlackBerry faithful. But before getting into the realm of the theoretical, let's turn our attention to what's already here and already real: a BlackBerry Classic in classical and clean white.

Instagram: 1-year since Windows Phone update, still no iPad app

Instagram: 1-year since Windows Phone update, still no iPad app

While the gap may be filled by an abundance of iPad apps on the iTunes app store now, Instagram is still without a full-fledged tablet-sized iteration. It's also been a year and a day since the last time the official Instagram app was updated for Windows Phone devices. After the app garnered enough popularity for Microsoft to create their own bootleg Instagram app, the team behind Instagram were encouraged to make their own - one that they've not updated for a whopping 12 months.

Acer Chromebook 15 Review: huge screen, tiny price

Acer Chromebook 15 Review: huge screen, tiny price

When it comes to Chromebooks, few set themselves apart. The Pixel is astonishing, but seems easily dismissed by most due to the price tag. At $999, the Pixel is just too much to spend for Chrome OS, and far too much out-of-pocket to suffer its limitations. The Acer Chromebook 15 might be one to consider for Chrome OS users. Big promises often come in plastic shells in the PC game, so does the Chromebook 15 deliver on its fairly impressive spec sheet? We find out.

Apple Watch may have already beaten Android Wear

Apple Watch may have already beaten Android Wear

Canalys says about 720,000 Android Wear devices have been shipped. Of those watches, the Moto 360 is ‘the clear leader’ in the clubhouse, with the G Watch R from LG also making an impact versus its squared sister device. Their findings are interesting, but the caveat is ‘shipped’ versus ‘sold’. We know the two don’t directly correlate (we saw that with Samsung tablets). Now I'm starting to wonder if the Apple Watch has already beaten Android Wear, without ever having seen the inside of an Apple Store.

Volvo V60 Cross Country first-drive – Because wagons are sexy

Volvo V60 Cross Country first-drive – Because wagons are sexy

“Wagons are sexy,” I insisted when I told people I was going to drive the new Volvo V60 Cross Country. Not everyone was convinced. While in my native Europe there’s a long-standing affinity for the wagon - or, as I grew up saying, an “estate” - the wood panel hangover has been tougher to overcome in the US and, like diesel engines, its taken some clever branding to even get a foot in the door. The V60 Cross Country, then, picks up a nameplate that has served Volvo well for two decades, lifting the regular V60 and positioning itself as the de-facto “urban active” option for those not quite convinced with crossovers.

Wearables mean we’ve popped the smartphone bubble

Wearables mean we’ve popped the smartphone bubble

Manufacturers couldn't cram any more socially acceptable functionality into their smartphones, so they moved their smartphones to your wrist. When we first started seeing so-called "Wearable" devices, it was clear: these devices were either going to be wristwatches or they were going to be extra-tiny smartphones. Or tablets, if you're talking about the devices without phone capabilities. Once the smartwatch launched with a tiny version of Android onboard, it wasn't difficult to access: smartphone innovation was over, and the hype machine was back in action.
