Lenovo has another giant tablet coming, this time with Android

Lenovo isn't one to shy away from stretching the tablet device category to its limits, almost literally. Despite the industry-wide slowdown in tablet sales, Lenovo keeps on churning such devices, in all shapes, bends, and sizes. Just last October it revealed its largest yet, the Lenovo YOGA Home 900 pictured above, exuding 27 inches of pure Windows 10 power.

Apple patents Smart Covers with solar panel, sketchpad, and more

Apple may have devised a new Smart Connector for its iPad Pro line, but so far that has been utilized for one and one thing only: a keyboard Smart Cover.

Surface Book 2 to have USB-C port, 4K screen

If you have been waiting for the next iteration of the Surface Book before sinking your teeth into Microsoft's first laptop, then your patience might be paying off. Or not.

Galaxy Tab S3 8.0 at TENAA might be an omen of things to come

Just recently, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy TabPro S, which, despite the "Galaxy" brand, is anything but an Android tablet. It was a Windows slate in the tradition of the Surface Pro line and aimed to rival the larger iPad Pro. With the TabPro S comes the question of whether Samsung actually has a premium grade Android tablet in the works. There is an upcoming Galaxy Tab S3, based on leaks, rumors, and this lone TENAA sighting.

Intel kills Atom, smartphone, tablet future in limbo

Intel kills Atom, smartphone, tablet future in limbo

Has Intel finally thrown in the towel in the smartphone market? It seem so. As part of the company's comprehensive reforms, which also saw 11% of its worforce get pink slips, Intel has revealed the immediate cancellation of two of its current and still coming products: the SoFIA platform and the next gen Broxton chips. While those names might not ring too many bells, these basically means that Intel has effectively killed off the future of its Atom processors, putting into question the very future of its smartphone and, more importantly, low-cost tablet dreams.
