Lenovo Tab E10 available in the US six months after debut

Lenovo Tab E10 available in the US six months after debut

Not all markets are equal, which sometimes means that not all markets are given the same opportunities to access the same devices. Expensive premium devices are sometimes withheld from those labeled as “growing economies” while more budget-friendly entry-level products are unavailable in “major markets”. Sometimes, though, those products eventually make their way, but only after some time has passed. Just like the Lenovo Tab E10 Android tablet that just silently popped up in the US, months after it could have made a difference.

Galaxy S10 pre-orders will start day after Unpacked event

In just two weeks, a little before the MWC fever starts, Samsung will be holding its big Unpacked 2019 event to get a head start from everyone else. While its foldable phone is expected to make an appearance in one form or another, its focus will be the Galaxy S10, which will be available sooner than that unconventional device. How much sooner? Apparently, interested buyers will just have to wait hours as pre-orders might very well kick off the next day after the phones are announced.

Amazon Prime Video X-Ray is on Apple TVs at long last

Amazon Prime Video X-Ray is on Apple TVs at long last

Wouldn't it be nice of all these rival tech companies could just get along nicely? That would mean having access to products and features without much drama or difficulty. Sadly, that's rarely the case so when a service's feature finally becomes available on a rival's platform, there's more than enough reason to be happy. Just like the long-overdue addition of Amazon Prime Video's X-Ray feature on Apple TVs.

Xperia XZ4 triple cameras include 52MP sensor, largest in the market

Sony's mobile business is in deep trouble. Despite its attempt to reinvent its Xperia line, its previous earnings are leaving analysts wondering if this year will be Sony Mobile's last hurrah. The company, however, has always been stubborn about its smartphones, despite and in spite of all the odds. Expected to headline this coming MWC 2019, the Xperia XZ4 could also give smartphone users something to talk about. Provided it's not yet too late for the Xperia brand, that is.

Bluetooth 5.1 will know which direction a signal comes from

Bluetooth 5.1 will know which direction a signal comes from

Some, especially real estate agents, would say it’s all about location. That’s only partly true when it comes to location-based services and technology. Because as important as knowing the location of an object may be, it’s sometimes just as important to know its direction relative to you. That’s why in the latest core specification of the Bluetooth standard, the wireless technology is finally getting a sense of direction.

Google “Coral” on Geekbench: Snapdragon 855, 6GB RAM, Android Q

Google “Coral” on Geekbench: Snapdragon 855, 6GB RAM, Android Q

It wasn’t too long ago that Google launched its third-gen Pixel phones. In fact, we might still be waiting for a Pixel 3 Lite, if that truly exists. That doesn’t mean, however, that Google isn’t already working on what would be the Pixel 4 later this year. That does seem to be the implication in this extremely early sighting of a certain “Google coral” on Geekbench, showing users what to expect by October.

Redmi Go is Xiaomi’s first Android Go phone

Redmi Go is Xiaomi’s first Android Go phone

Xiaomi isn’t exactly what you would call a model Android OEM. Partly due to Google Play’s unavailability and partly due to its own ambitions, the Chinese manufacturer has, for years, doing non-standard Android customizations on its phones. So when it came out with its first ever vanilla Android One phone, there was no small amount of praise lavished on it. Now it seems it will do one better by putting out its first Android Go phone under its new Redmi sub-brand.
