Amazon Fire HD 10 Review – Only Amazon addicts need apply

Amazon Fire HD 10 Review – Only Amazon addicts need apply

Amazon's largest ever tablet is also the company's thinnest, and as you'd expect the Fire HD 10 does its level best to be the perfect vehicle for the Bezos empire. Promising the cutting-edge in tablet hardware, with the heavily customized ease of Amazon's Android spin-off Fire OS, and at a price that would't even get you a base-model iPad, there's certainly a lot to like about the HD 10 on paper.

Verizon outs Samsung Galaxy Tab E for some family fun

Verizon outs Samsung Galaxy Tab E for some family fun

Today, all eyes are probably on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus launch (or on the Pope), but there's always room for more than just Apple's devices. While Verizon has just revealed its own strategy for keeping iPhone owners updated on the latest release year after year, the carrier is also announcing an Android tablet for its customers. The Samsung Galaxy Tab E is no iPad, for sure, but it offers a potentially enticing combination of a budget tablet that can be used by anyone in the family.

Microsoft recommends 7-inch tablets run Windows 10 Mobile

Microsoft recommends 7-inch tablets run Windows 10 Mobile

Microsoft has just released some recommendations for its hardware partners on what their next Windows 10 devices should pack, whether they be tablets or smartphones. Although not exactly set in stone or infallible, since Microsoft can't exactly dictate the hardware unlike Apple, the list does reveal what the company has in mind when it envisions how Windows 10 will be spreading to consumers. Interestingly, it seems that for Microsoft, not all tablets will be treated equally and won't be running the full power of Windows 10.

Dell Venue 8 Pro, Venue 10 Pro 5000 comes with USB Type-C

Dell Venue 8 Pro, Venue 10 Pro 5000 comes with USB Type-C

Partially thanks to Apple, adoption of the USB Type-C standard seems to be coming along in a steady pace. New devices, from smartphones to tablets to laptops, are sporting the bi-directional, reversible port. Of course, that's hardly the only highlight of Dell's two new "mobile productivity" tablets. The Dell Venue 8 Pro 5000 and the Venue 10 Pro 5000 both build up on their predecessors with a latest Intel Atom processor, active pen via Wacom technology, and an almost dirt cheap price tag to boot.

ASUS outs Transformer Book T100HA, Flip TP200SA convertibles

In less than a month, Microsoft might have a new Surface Pro 4 to wow consumers hoping to get their hands on some fancy new 2-in-1 device. But it is unlikely everyone will be able to afford Microsoft's usually high end tablets. For those on a tighter budget but still need productivity in an even more portable form, ASUS is putting out the Transformer Book T100HA and Transformer Book Flip FP200SA, the latest members of its growing line of tablet/laptop hybrids trying to corner the mid-range Windows market.

Kurio Smart is a 2-in-1 Windows tablet designed for kids

Tablets and smartphones for kids aren't exactly new and we've already seen quite a number of them trying to appeal to both parents and kids for patronage. Rare, however, if not non-existent, is a tablet for kids that touts a full Windows installation as well as a 2-in-1 detachable keyboard form factor, two things that are mostly presumed to be for adults only. But that is exactly what KD Interactive's new Kurio Smart is offering kids these days. Plus, a new Kurio Xtreme 2 tablet is also launched for those who prefer Android's flavor.

HP Envy 8 Note might an interesting Windows 10 mini-tablet

HP Envy 8 Note might an interesting Windows 10 mini-tablet

HP has a new tablet coming but while it will run Windows 10 and have a stylus, fortunately or unfortunately, it will not be a Microsoft Surface clone. Instead, this so-called Envy 8 Note 2-in-1 tablet will come in a more handy 8-inch size that is seemingly optimized for note-taking. It will come with a folio cover for that very purpose, but will also ship with a keyboard and a stylus for good measure. The tablet also boasts of LTE connectivity, a not so common trait among new Windows 10 devices.

iPad Mini 4 teardown: a hard to repair mini iPad Air 2

iPad Mini 4 teardown: a hard to repair mini iPad Air 2

New device, new teardown. As Apple's newest iPhones and iPads make their way to customers, iFixit asks the usual question it asks of any new device in the market: how easy, or hard, will it be to fix? Given how Apple's devices are tightly sealed contraptions, perhaps the terribly low final score of the new iPad Mini 4 isn't that shocking. But the little tablet did still manage to make some interesting revelations, like how this small tablet resembled more the iPad Air 2 than its immediate predecessor.
