Odd Project Ara “tablet” sighted in benchmark site

If you have forgotten about Project Ara, Google's promise of a modular smartphone, you can, perhaps, be forgiven a bit. Promised, although tentatively, to launch sometime in early 2015, the now almost mythical device is still nowhere to be seen. Except in developer conferences, blog posts, and, apparently, benchmarking websites. An certain Google Project Ara, model A8A01, appeared on GFXBench and while most of the specs seem normal for a high-end smartphone these days, one detail or two make it sound more like an odd and gigantic tablet instead.

Acer Predator 8 Review Part I: what no other tablet has

When we first heard about the Acer Predator 8, it was clear they were going after the market dominated by the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet. This is a gaming tablet that rolls with an 8-inch WUXGA (1920 x 1200 pixel) display and four front-facing speakers. Acer is not fooling around with this release. This is no "filler" tablet. In this device is one of the strangest - in a good way - pieces of Android hardware we've seen in a very long time.

The Android ad-blocking war has begun

The Android ad-blocking war has begun

Google blocks an ad-blocking from the Google Play app store not long after Samsung announced an ad-blocking API release for its own web browser. Thus begins the ad-blocking war on Android devices in ernest. This is not the first time an Android app has been blocked from Google's official app store for disobeying the official developer rules - and at this time it's not entirely clear whether or not the block has been put in place for something new, or the same reason as the old.

iPad Air 3 could be an iPad Pro for the common user

An Apple Event has been tipped to take place next month packed with a number of devices, one of which is the long-awaited iPad Air 3, this time tipped to come with some "Pro" features.

IDC: iPad Pro overtakes rivals, detachable tablets on the rise

Naysayers and doubter, take note. Despite the rather mixed reviews and reception, Apple's biggest tablet yet actually ended up as the Q4 2015's top selling tablet. And as much as Microsoft may want to deny it and even ridicule it, Apple's iPad Pro managed to outrank Microsoft's Surface tablets, once considered to be the top of the class. That said, the worldwide tablet market is still on a decline, but salvation might come from the new breed of detachables that are taking the market by storm.

iPad Air 3 case hints at 4 speakers, flash, smart connector

iPad Air 3 case hints at 4 speakers, flash, smart connector

Given the attention that Samsung is getting over the Galaxy S7, which we expect to be unveiled at the manufacturer's February 21 Unpacked event, there is naturally a counter flow of talk surrounding Apple's own expected March devices. While the iPhone 5se and its 4-inch body has more or less been leaked to death, the iPad Air 3 remains a curious case. Now leaked photos of an alleged case for the 9.7-inch tablet has just made it even more curious, hinting at a possible Smart Connector for the device.
