Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Review

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is the Galaxy Note Tablet that never was. In the best way possible, Samsung has created an Android answer for the iPad Pro. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 has some of the qualities of the Samsung Galaxy Note series - save a couple of the most important features. Where the Galaxy Tab S3 could have excelled above the iPad Pro, Samsung has decided to play it safe. Can Samsung’s newest Galaxy-branded tablet be the high-end tablet-with-stylus Samsung needs to go toe-to-toe with its biggest mobile competitors?

Apple’s new 9.7 iPad cuts the price to coax tablet upgrades

Apple’s new 9.7 iPad cuts the price to coax tablet upgrades

Apple's iPad is the current crown-holder in tablet sales, and now there's a new, cheaper version of the 9.7-inch iPad in an attempt to hold onto that record. Priced from $329, the new iPad 9.7 is partly Apple's attempt to coax long-time owners of its older tablets to upgrade, something tablet users in general have proved more reluctant to do than they might with their smartphones. In that vein, it offers a few notable improvements.

Superscreen transforms your Android, iPhone into a tablet

Superscreen transforms your Android, iPhone into a tablet

Ever wished your smartphone had a much larger screen but don’t exactly want a larger phone, much less a tablet? While LG tried to address that desire in the LG G6, it could only go so far. A tablet would mean yet another device to carry and keep in sync. Not to mention yet another potentially expensive purchase. Wouldn’t it be grand if your smartphone could just magically have a larger display? Short of folding devices and actual magic, that is exactly the dream that the Superscreen Kickstarter is seeking to make come true. With your funding help, of course.

Android update 7.1.2 brings goodies for Nexus 6P, Pixel C

Although rumors about the next major Android version, the still unnamed Android “O”, are starting to trickle in, there’s still a lot of work to be done for Android Nougat. Feature parity among supported devices, specifically Google’s own devices, is one such area of improvement. Fortunately, it seems that Google has heard the cries of its Nexus users and has started rolling out the Android 7.1.2 that brings, among other things, fingerprint gestures to the Nexus 6P and some UI improvements to the Pixel C tablet.

Google Assistant isn’t heading to tablets any time soon

Google Assistant isn’t heading to tablets any time soon

Google was surprisingly quick at making its smart assistant available to more devices outside of its own product line. Once a defining feature of the Google Pixel and the Google Home, Google Assistant has, starting last month, rolled out slowly to other Android phones, presuming they’re running on Marshmallow or later, even if they’re not a Nexus. Unfortunately, those who have been waiting for word on Assistant’s arrival on Android tablets did just get that word, and it’s not the one they wanted to hear: “no”.

iPad mini Pro said to be one of four new iPads coming

We’ll let those words sink in for a while. It was recently leaked that Apple had not three but four new iPads in the works, probably slated for next month’s big reveal. Three of those have more or less been leaked to death in the past, but the fourth one is a new mystery. According to a Greek retailer, that fourth one is actually a new iPad mini. And not just any iPad mini, but one that has a “Pro” appended to its name.

iPad leaks reveal four new models are being tested

Rumor has it that Apple has some new iPad models in the pipeline, and now a new leak indicates there are four such models in testing. Whether the company will actually proceed to launch four new iPad varieties is anyone’s guess (and certainly isn’t a guarantee), but the revelation is interesting regardless. The testing points toward the formerly rumored 12.9-inch iPad Pro update and the 9.7-inch 'budget' model, as well as a 10-inch model and a 10.5-inch model.

Now, there's the possibility that Apple will do that with little more fanfare than a press release.

Here’s when and where Apple’s iPad event might take place

Here’s when and where Apple’s iPad event might take place

Apple has never been one to compete for space at big tech events, be it at CES, MWC, or IFA. It always holds its own conferences at its own pace, though those usually do coincide with some major events. Around this time last year, Apple was preparing for an iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro. This year, however, Apple’s traditional Spring gathering might be running a wee bit late. According to speculation, Apple could be holding that event, where it is expected to launch three new iPads, in the first week of April and at its brand new campus.

2-in-1 detachables could improve PC market, says IDC

While tables were still a minority at MWC 2017 last week, convertible and detachable PCs definitely made a big splash nonetheless. It isn’t by accident either. According to market analysis experts IDC, the popularity of detachable tablets and convertible notebooks is still strong, despite a decline in shipments last quarter. In fact, it predicts that this category could actually slow down the still ongoing decline of the overall PC market, at least by 2021.
