Dell kills its Android tablets, focus on 2-in-1 Windows slates

Dell kills its Android tablets, focus on 2-in-1 Windows slates

Analysts and market observers have long been chanting the death of tablets as we know them. Now Dell is dancing to their tune and has formally announced the death of its Android-powered Venue tablets. Which isn't much of a surprise given it hasn't exactly put out a brand new model since last year. The PC maker, however, isn't ditching tablets altogether, at least not completely. It will, instead, realign its focus and resources on the more specific 2-in-1 style of tablet/laptop hybrids. But, at the same time, it will also put the focus on Windows 10 for those devices.

Although not exactly known for it, ASUS has had some rather formidable Android tablets as well. Come July 12th, ASUS will be putting out another one, the 9.7-inch ZenPad 3s. And based on the leaked specs and rendered images, it might very well be the most high-end Android tablet this year, barring the Pixel C of late 2015.

While it was well received, especially among budget-conscious consumers who didn't want to step up to a full laptop, the last few weeks have seen stock levels and configuration options become limited.

Nexus “expiration dates” now listed by Google

Nexus “expiration dates” now listed by Google

Although Google treats its Nexus devices with very special treatment when it comes to updates, it was never meant to last forever.

Almost like a carrier or OEM, Google promises up to two years of major version updates for its Nexus smartphones and tablets. And just to make sure everyone's on the same page, Google has now put up a table detailing exactly until when a Nexus device will get a new Android version.
