GammaTech DURABOOK R11 tablet makes Windows 10 indestructible

Despite some rough edges, particularly in some security and privacy policies, Windows 10 has been off to a good start, with widespread adoption and a generally positive reception. Updates from Windows 7 and Windows 8 are going fairly well and it isn't just the major OEMs that are pushing the latest Windows out to their customers. Even more niche companies like GammaTech are giving users both old and new a taste of Windows 10, like the DUARABOOK 11 rugged tablet, which now comes with the latest OS.

E FUN’s new Nextbook Ares tablets tout Verizon 4G LTE

We are all growing more connected these days, so much that even users of budget tablets sometimes expect Internet connectivity anywhere they go. That combination is exactly what E FUN, who claims to be the second largest vendor of detachables or 2-in-1 tablets, is promising to offer with its two new Android-powered Nextbook Ares tablets.

Dell has a Surface Pro clone with a 4K display

Dell has a Surface Pro clone with a 4K display

Let the clone wars begin! Or something like that. Despite Dell (and HP) entering into a partnership with Microsoft to sell the latter's Surface Pro 3 tablets to former's enterprise customers, it seems that Dell also has plans to try to one up Microsoft in that category too. A new XPS 12 2-in-1 was recently leaked sporting the same design sense that has made Microsoft's tablet both popular and unpopular at the same time. This follows Lenovo's more official revelation of the MIIX 700 with exactly the same basic design.

Fortunately there's good news for anyone considering the device as a serious multi-tasking work horse: it has 4GB of RAM inside, double that of the iPad Air 2. Surprisingly this information comes not from Apple, but from Adobe's press release for their new Photoshop Fix app.

iPad Pro hands-on: Big tablet puts MacBook Air on notice

iPad Pro hands-on: Big tablet puts MacBook Air on notice

The iPad Pro is huge. Incredibly, vastly, ridiculously huge. 12.9-inches may not be big in the grand scheme of screens, but when it's slapped on the front of a 6.9 mm thick tablet it's astonishing to pick up. Still, while the iPad Pro might be as close to the "digital newspaper" of science fiction past as we've got so-far, it makes far more sense as a content creation tool than one for consumption.
