Galaxy TabPro S2 Windows 10 tablet said to be in the works

Galaxy TabPro S2 Windows 10 tablet said to be in the works

When it comes to tablets, Samsung is more known for putting out Android slates more than anything. But early this year, it challenged that perception by unveiling the, perhaps poorly-named, Galaxy TabPro S. Despite the “Galaxy” in the name, it was unabashedly a Windows 10 tablet, one that aimed to rival not just the Apple iPad Pro but even Microsoft’s own Surface Pro 4. Receiving a moderate amount of success, word on the rumor mill is that Samsung is already working on a successor named, what else, the Galaxy TabPro S2. Yes, still a “Galaxy”.

Microsoft Surface Pro 3 finally gets its battery fix update

Microsoft Surface Pro 3 finally gets its battery fix update

Surface Pro 3 users have been getting pretty tense about the lives of their tablet/laptop hybrids over battery issues that somewhat mysteriously appeared just after the device reached the end of its warranty period. Some even already had theirs shipped for an out-of-warranty replacement, which, of course, costs no small amount of money. Hopefully, they can now breathe a sigh of relief as Microsoft has finally released the firmware update that will fix the issue once and for all. Or at least that’s the promise.

Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus 10 leaked to be a high res Android slate

Dell has already backed out of the Android tablet market and Samsung’s upcoming tablet flagship is probably mid-range at best. Some OEMs, however, haven’t thrown in the towel yet. At IFA 2016 next week, Lenovo is expected to unveil new tablets, including an Android one. And based on this leak, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus 10 nis going to be a mixed bag, with its finest qualities being its QHD screen and generous 9,300 mAh battery.

Samsung SM-P580 tablet with S Pen inbound

Samsung SM-P580 tablet with S Pen inbound

It seems that Samsung might not yet be totally done with putting an S Pen inside tablets after all, though it might indeed be done calling them Galaxy Note as well. The user manual for a certain tablet with a model number of SM-P580 was just spotted on the company’s Korean website. And while the tablet’s specs seem to share much in common with the recently launched Galaxy Tab A 10.1, the manual clearly shows that this variant will, like some Galaxy Tab A’s before it, also get an S Pen.

Android tablets endangered: searching for a new purpose

Android tablets endangered: searching for a new purpose

A few years back, analysts and market watchers loved picking on the PCs, by which they traditional meant desktops and laptops, as the underdogs of the consumer tech industry. These days, however, that status has befallen the tablet, whose sales have seen continuously plummeting numbers. But with the iPad Pro and the proliferation of Windows 2-in-1 hybrids, that is even more so the case with Android tablets, despite the strength of their numbers. Why has this once popular device class become so laid low? Is there a way to save them, or should we even bother trying? I'd say yes, but it's going to take some guts, which OEMs have unfortunately lost in the past years.

Barnes & Noble Galaxy Tab A NOOK launched: 7 inches, no S Pen

Barnes & Noble Galaxy Tab A NOOK launched: 7 inches, no S Pen

The venerable Barnes & Noble may have already thrown in the towel as far as its own NOOK-branded e-ink readers are concerned. Instead, it has partnered with Samsung to put out a NOOK by Samsung line of Android tablets that double as ebook readers as well, not unlike Amazon's Fire tablets, but, well, made by Samsung. The latest fruit of this partnership is a Galaxy Tab A NOOK, based on the more recent 7-inch model introduced by Samsung a few months ago. An entry-level, budget tablet by nature, what this tablet lacks in hardware features, it makes up for in the richness and diversity of content.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 confirmed, discouraging hints

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 confirmed, discouraging hints

Samsung, at least its Colombian office, has confirmed the existence of the Galaxy Tab S3, the company's flagship line for Android tablets. It has also confirmed that it is debuting in September, which, for all intents and purposes, practically means at IFA 2016 in a few weeks' time. And while the mini announcement reveals no details, reading between the lines, it might not make a bigger splash than the Gear S3 smartwatch also expected to be announced there. And that might be pretty damning for a tablet.

10.5″ iPad Pro in 2017, with flexible AMOLED in 2018, says Kuo

Despite the iPad Pro line, specially the 12.9-inch model, somewhat reinvigorating the iPad market, Apple's tablets suffer the same malady as the rest of the tablet industry, with declining sales and even faster declining interests. Which is why Apple's future iPads continue to be the subject of speculation or wishful thinking. And even the renowned Ming-Chi Kuo is not immune to that. According to the analyst, Apple is set to unveil iPads that will break the mold, including a 10.5-inch model next year and one with a flexible AMOLED screen in two years' time.
