iPad Pro 12.9 inch now included in Apple’s refurbished list

If you've ever wanted to get your hands on one of 'em fancy iPad Pros, especially the bigger one, but didn't really have the heart to part ways with most of your hard-earned cash, now you have a chance to reconsider. Apple has just added the 12.9-inch iPad Pro to its selection of "Certified Refurbished" products, some with a discount as big as $160. This does make the iPad Pro a lot more palatable in terms of price, though it comes with your usual disclaimers of an already used, but in good condition, device.

The Android PC – Revisiting mobile productivity

The Android PC – Revisiting mobile productivity

Last week we took the iPad Pro again for a spin, trying to verify, or refute, Apple's claims about the tablet being the ultimate PC replacement. And just in time, the company just released a video ad just few days ago that tries to make the same point again. But iOS is hardly the only game in town, especially on mobile. And while Google hasn't exactly made a similar claim for Android, others have spoken for it instead. But before go off on another crazy adventure, we first have to look at the few, of course unofficial, attempts at making Android the ultimate PC replacement, as far as OS is concerned at least. Yes, this is the so-called "Android PC".

iPad Pro Smart Keyboard gets Arabic, Italian, British English layouts

iPad Pro Smart Keyboard gets Arabic, Italian, British English layouts

Unless you've been exposed to other cultures and languages, you might presume that keyboards, be they for typewriters or computers, are a one size fits all kind of thing when it comes to the arrangement and characters on them. You might be surprised at the sometimes subtle variations in existence. Most keyboards, especially for mobile devices, sadly fail to take those into account. Apple, however, is quite keen on appealing to as many countries as possible, which is why it is now putting out Arabic, Italian, and British English layouts for its Smart Keyboards for the iPad Pro tablets of both sizes.

Remix OS brings multi-tasking Marshmallow to Nexus 9, Pixel C

If you were greatly disappointed with how the Pixel C turned out software-wise, now you might have the chance to reconsider your evaluation. That is, if you're willing to ditch the stock Android experience. Jide has just announced that it is officially making available its multi-windowed Remix OS to Google's Pixel C 2-in-1 as well as the Nexus 9. And it won't simply be some Remix OS version either, but one that is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow from the get go.

iPad Pro ad gets people asking what a computer really is

iPad Pro ad gets people asking what a computer really is

As we've said before, mobile devices, smartphones and especially tablets, have redefined what personal computing is for people. Before, computers, specifically PCs, were associated with barely movable contraptions with a display, keyboard, and pointing device, usually a mouse. Today, however, almost everyone has a computer in their pocket or bag. Apple provokes that very same shift in thinking in its latest iPad Pro, practically equating the iPad Pro with the common notion of a computer. In other words, the "ultimate PC replacement", as it claimed before.

Asus ZenPad 3 8.0 is a ‘premium’ 2k Android tablet

Asus ZenPad 3 8.0 is a ‘premium’ 2k Android tablet

Asus has launched a new “premium” tablet called the ZenPad 3 8.0, a high-end offering that mixes together a sleek design and high-quality display to trump many competing products in the 7.9-inch category. ASUS took the wraps off of it this weekend, doing so quietly to the surprise of many; the model appears to be an alternative to the Verizon-centric ZenPad Z8 from June.

IDC: Worldwide tablet shipments continued to decline in Q2 2016

The International Data Corporation (IDC) has released a new report with preliminary data that shows tablet shipments around the world continuing to fall. This continues a trend we've seen in quite a few previous quarters, with tablet shipments dropping year-over-year as prospective buyers continue to either opt for detachable form factors over the more traditional slate form or wait on their tablet purchase altogether.

iPad Pro 9.7 revisited: making it work for work

iPad Pro 9.7 revisited: making it work for work

When Apple first unveiled the already much leaked iPad Pro, the 12.9-inch one, it made a very bold declaration. This iPad, which had a specially designed keyboard cover and worked with a specially designed stylus, is the ultimate PC replacement. It was, perhaps, the most controversial thing about the iPad Pro. Of course, like Microsoft's similar claim about the Surface Pros, the reality wasn't as rosy. We've already seen it in action, when Chris Davies took in on a trip just three months ago. But now we take another look at the iPad Pro, the same 9.7-inch model, to answer an equally burning question: how can it replace a PC, especially for some serious work.

Ubuntu Touch takes a huge step towards Convergence in OTA-12

Ubuntu Touch takes a huge step towards Convergence in OTA-12

Ubuntu has a very ambitious goal with Ubuntu Touch. It proposed an operating system that could work equally on any capable device, a smartphone that can truly be your computer, no holds barred. That was the promise of Convergence, which we took for a spin with the Meizu PRO 5 smartphone and, before that, the bq Aquaris M10 tablet. The results back then where disappointing yet promising. Ubuntu Touch, as it was when we reviewed these devices, still lacked that punch that would make you truly go "wow!". But, unlike other operating systems, Ubuntu is fast evolving, and the latest OTA-12 brings much needed improvements to bring us closer to true Convergence.

Dell XPS 12 Two-in-One Laptop Review

Dell XPS 12 Two-in-One Laptop Review

Consumers are increasingly gravitating toward so-called "convertible" laptops -- that is, tablets that attach to a keyboard, giving users the best of both worlds. Dell's new XPS 12 is no exception, at least not in terms of its foundational design: it has a folio cover, magnetic keyboard, detachable tablet, and stylus. We've seen all that before, and we'll see it again. The finer details are what makes or breaks a new offering, of course, and so we've spent a couple weeks putting Dell's new two-in-one through the wringer. Spoiler: the results are largely great.
