Android tablets aren’t making headlines as much as they used to, save for a few rather eccentric ones like the Lenovo Yoga Book. That, however, isn’t stopping manufacturer E FUN from putting out yet another Android tablet for this year. Like the company’s other Nextbook devices, this is a 2-in-1 tablet/laptop hybrid with a detachable keyboard, in the vein of the ASUS Transformer. Curiously enough, E FUN spends much if its time talking about why you should opt for an Android tablet rather than talking about the tablet itself.

Lenovo Yoga Book goes on pre-order in the US

While we've seen no small amount of new devices back at IFA 2016 earlier this month, few managed to really make head turns and capture attendees' imaginations than the Lenovo Yoga Book.

iPads get a storage and price shakeup

Much attention has been lavished on the new iPhone 7, and 7 Plus, and the new Apple Watch, and rightly so.

Behind the scenes, Apple has somewhat silently updated its listings for all iPads currently sold, both old and new, removing old storage capacities and adding new ones to keep them in line with the new iPhone 7. And the net effect is that you get more gigabytes for the same or lower price than before.

This device is one of Lenovo's unique tablets-with-kickstands, working with a 2K display, Android inside, and a chassis that aims for a high-end experience.
