Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows 13″ model expands lineup

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows 13″ model expands lineup

Earlier this month we went hands-on with Lenovo's new Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows (and Android), which was revealed in both 8-inch and 10-inch iterations. The maker has expanded upon this, introducing another slate into the lineup: the Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows 13-inch model (not to be confused with the Yoga 2 13). As you'd expect, the big change with the newest model is its larger Quad HD display, which complements the already excellent features otherwise present in the product lineup.

This word comes from the MIT Enterprise Forum in Hong Kong during a Question and Answer session during the "Technologies That Matter Series." Remember that these are concept works, not necessarily things that will come to fruition with BlackBerry in the near future. And you've already got a BlackBerry PlayBook in your backpack now, right?

Nextbit Baton brings iPhone-style Continuity to Android

Apple’s iPhone and iPad have Handoff in Continuity, but if Nextbit has its way Android will soon be able to boast the same, baking easy app switching between phones and tablets in at the OS level.

Dell Venue 8 7000 set to ship in the US end of November

Dell Venue 8 7000 set to ship in the US end of November

Dell will soon be bringing its most premium and yet, at the same time, oddest Android tablet to the US market just in time for the holidays. While the Dell Venue 8 7000 is already quite impressive from the specs alone, flaunting high-end gear all crammed inside an extremely thin profile, the tablet's real selling point would be its rear cameras. Yes, you read that right. The Dell Venue 8 7000 has not one, not even two, but three back-facing cameras to give you, or the tablet rather, a better sense of depth.

AT&T’s Apple SIM lock-down undermines iPad LTE flexibility

Apple may be trying to further squeeze out the carriers with Apple SIM, its solution to allowing travelers the easiest access to iPad data plans on local networks, but that doesn't mean the carriers themselves are going to make it easy. While AT&T and others may be participating with Apple's multi-carrier SIM scheme, once they've got customers signed up they may not let them switch away as readily as the Cupertino firm envisaged. Indeed, AT&T has confirmed to SlashGear that if you initially pick its network, there's no going elsewhere on the same SIM.

iPad Air 2 registers with “secret” NFC? Not so fast…

iPad Air 2 registers with “secret” NFC? Not so fast…

Signs of NFC hardware in the iPad Air 2 have prompted speculation that Apple could turn the tablet into an Apple Pay cash register replacement, though it's almost certain not to be something the company could enable in this generation. A recent teardown of the new 9.7-inch tablet found that it contains the same NFC chip as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Since Apple doesn't list NFC among the iPad Air 2's connectivity options, that has led to chatter that it's a feature-in-waiting; however, it's unlikely to pan out that way.
