Venue 11 Pro 7000 is Dell’s new Surface Pro 3 double

Dell has dragged its Venue 11 Pro tablet back into the labs and given it a makeover, slimming down and speeding up the Windows 8.1 slate to better compete with Microsoft's own Surface Pro 3. The new Venue 11 Pro 7000 now looks distinctly similar to the Surface Pro 3, in fact, and Dell has seemingly taken some inspiration from there when it comes to accessories and peripherals, too, with a mobile keyboard and an active stylus both on offer. That's not to say the new Dell isn't interesting in its own right, however.

ClickN KIDS Tablet 2 boasts Intel hardware, Google Play

ClickN KIDS Tablet 2 boasts Intel hardware, Google Play

Not all kids tablets are alike: while (almost) all of them are durable enough to handle being tossed and dropped, many are lackluster when it comes to features. They're slow and sometimes buggy, and may have limited app options. That isn't the case with CNK Digital's new ClickN KIDS Tablet 2, a slate that has Intel hardware under the hood and, among other things, Google Play, allowing the device to run whatever apps the users' parents allow. The tablet is available for pre-order in the US as of today for $99.95.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Lollipop release by November’s end

This week NVIDIA has shared the good news - the NVIDIA SHIELD will be getting Android 5.0 Lollipop by the end of November 2014.

The first would be the Nexus 9, also powered by the NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor. NVIDIA SHIELD's update to Lollipop will also include updates to the NVIDIA SHIELD Hub app and the NVIDIA Dabbler app - lots and lots of tiny features.

Nexus 9 teardown: you’re going to need a case

Nexus 9 teardown: you’re going to need a case

HTC may have put the Nexus 9 on a deep discount today, but that won’t help you much if you need to repair it. As they often do, iFixit has torn down the tablet, and proved how repairable it is. Or isn’t. An extremely low score suggests this is one you’ll need to take care of in a big way, discounted or not. Even the more routine fixes will require a great deal of skill, and likely expensive replacement parts.

Analyst: Apple brings in 86% of handset profits

There is typically a lot of chatter about device shipments and market share, but those two metrics mean relatively little when compared to actual sales, use, and profitability. On the heels of the iPhone 6 hitting the world stage alongside the iPhone 6 Plus, Apple’s profits were impressive. An even more impressive finding is that the Cupertino-based company also commands a lion’s share of the handset industry profit. According to one analyst, Apple has a massive 86% of the profit earned from the mobile handset market.

Nexus 9 stock stays strong after launch day

Nexus 9 stock stays strong after launch day

While the Nexus 6 suffered some relatively major hiccups during launch day, the Nexus 9 appears to be keeping stock a whole lot longer. Be it because tablets simply don't turn over well or because the Nexus 6 is simply a more enticing machine, the HTC-made Nexus 9 remains in stock. Just so long as you're willing to skip the "Sand" color, that is to say. Lunar White and Indigo Black are still available in 16 or 32GB editions - but not in LTE, just Wi-fi only.

This is the Nexus 9, Android Lollipop’s tablet vanguard

This is the Nexus 9, Android Lollipop’s tablet vanguard

Google's Nexus 9 faces more than a few challenges. Not only does it have the job of following Google's well-esteemed Nexus 7, which for two generations gave Android tablet fans an affordable and bag-friendly option, but it also serves as flag bearer for Android 5.0 Lollipop on a tablet form-factor. Throw in the fact that it also marks HTC's long-awaited re-entry into the slate segment, and that it's the first true 64-bit Android tablet courtesy of NVIDIA's Tegra K1, and that's a whole lot of pressure resting on one 8.9-inch iPad rival. So, how does it hold up?
