Galaxy Tab S3 leaked manual shows an overgrown Galaxy Note 7

Galaxy Tab S3 leaked manual shows an overgrown Galaxy Note 7

Samsung may have lost its chance to make the Galaxy Note 7 the next big thing in mobile productivity, but it might take another stab at it before the Galaxy Note 8 arrives. That will come in the form of the Galaxy Tab S3, not a new Galaxy Note device. At least that seems to be the vibe that’s being given off by a leaked manual for the tablet, spilling almost everything just a week before its debut.

iPad Pro ads claim it is not a computer

iPad Pro ads claim it is not a computer

Remember the once humorous “Mac vs PCs” ads of yesteryears? Actor Justin Long, who portrayed the Mac side of the fence, has already moved on from computers to smartphones, specifically a Huawei phone, and Apple is doing likewise. Somewhat. The company, who still makes Macs, has launched a few new ads touting the benefits of an iPad Pro and how it is better than a computer. But in doing so it is claiming, perhaps mistakenly, that it is not a computer.

Chuwi Hi13 challenges the Surface Book with Apollo Lake CPU

Chuwi Hi13 challenges the Surface Book with Apollo Lake CPU

While the Microsoft Surface Pro spurred a new generation of tablets, the Surface Book inspired laptop makers to try their hand at the detachable category. In the case of Chuwi, however, it inspired the tablet maker to reach for the laptop skies. The product of that is the Chuwi Hi13, a 13.5-inch detachable 2-in-1 that’s trying to take on the Surface Book on one end and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro on the other end. But while it’s considerably cheaper than both, it comes at the price of having an Intel Celeron CPU.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 gets its first leaked photo

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 gets its first leaked photo

MWC 2017 is barely two weeks away, so all the rumors, leaks, and insider tips are ramping up. Considering how late the revelation of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 came, it’s not exactly surprising that we’re only seeing more definitive leaks now. There’s really not much to see in this supposed image of the tablet, which looks like a render intended for the official PR materials. It does, however, seemingly confirm the one important feature for this tablet: it’s compatibility with Samsung’s S Pen stylus.

Lenovo Miix 320 leaked, next in affordable detachable line

Lenovo Miix 320 leaked, next in affordable detachable line

It is almost exactly a year since Lenovo put out the Miix 310, a detachable 2-in-1 Windows tablet that aimed for the lower tiers of the computing market. Just as it did last year, Lenovo is expected to unveil a new Miix 320 at MWC 2017 this month. The number will tell you that it's an upgrade to last year's model and, while that might be true, it isn't as huge a jump as it might sound.

Android Instant Tethering goes live for Pixel, Nexus devices

Android Instant Tethering goes live for Pixel, Nexus devices

We live in a very Internet-centric world, but access to the Internet isn't as ubiquitous or as stable as we might like. And that's not even counting the devices that can't connect to the 'net anytime, anywhere, a.k.a. WiFi-only devices. Especially for the latter class of devices, tethering is one of the workarounds to this problem but it's, more often than not, a multi-step process. Not if you're using a Pixel or recent Nexus device, though, with the rollout of Android Nougat's new Instant Tethering feature.

Lenovo Yoga Book a month later: Android at work

Lenovo Yoga Book a month later: Android at work

At IFA 2016 back in September, Lenovo revealed what is, to date, the most curious Android tablet in existence. Officially marketed as the ultimate productivity device, the Lenovo Yoga Book is often billed as a glimpse of the future. Of course, a tablet of the future would be of little value if it didn’t prove to be of use today. And so we took the Lenovo Yoga Book, the Android version specifically, on an extended tour of duty, to see if this brief glimpse of the future is something we do want to live in or if it’s something we would prefer to live without. Here are some things we’ve learned.

Nougat for SHIELD Tablet continue’s NVIDIA legacy of long-term support

Nougat for SHIELD Tablet continue’s NVIDIA legacy of long-term support

This week the folks at NVIDIA have announced their intention to deliver the newest in Android Nougat features to their own NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet. This is another example of NVIDIA providing support for devices well beyond the efforts of their other Android-based competition. This makes the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet, again in my mind, one of the most excellent and - certainly for Android - the best tablets in the world today.

Samsung Galaxy TabPro S2 could be a mixed bag

Samsung Galaxy TabPro S2 could be a mixed bag

It seems that Samsung's theme for MWC this year will be tablets, though it will most likely insert a reference or two to the Galaxy S8. In addition to the Galaxy Tab S2, which is poised to be one of the most high-end Android tablets this half of the year, Samsung is also expected to unveil the Galaxy TabPro S2, the successor to its new Windows 10 tablet line. But while the first model last year impressed with its specs and design, this year's tablet might earn mixed reactions to its mixed specs.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 could support the S Pen stylus

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 could support the S Pen stylus

With the Galaxy S8 out of the running for MWC 2017's best mobile device, save for a rumored minute-long teaser video, it seems that Samsung will be throwing everything except the kitchen sink on the Galaxy Tab S3 tablet instead. In addition to some of the best specs to come to tablets, the Galaxy Tab S3 is now also tipped to be compatible with the company's Wacom-powered S Pen stylus, making it a direct rival of Apple's iPad Pro tablets and raising questions about Samsung's own Galaxy Note line.

Lenovo Yoga A12 kicks off budget-friendly A Series tablets

Lenovo has introduced a new budget-friendly line of tablets to its existing Yoga lineup, the A Series, and it is kicking off that lineup with the new Yoga A12. The new tablet isn’t unlike previous Yoga offerings, being wonderfully thin at only 5.4mm at its thinnest point, and featuring the unique Halo keyboard. Unlike some other Yoga models, though, the A12 will fit the budgets of most buyers with a price starting at $299 USD.

Apple iPad remains king of tablets despite market decline

Apple iPad remains king of tablets despite market decline

Despite being nearly a decade in existence, if you consider the very first iPad as your starting point, tablets continue to have a rocky existence in the market. While not as unstable as wearables, tablet sales have continued to decline over the years after a golden age early in its life. The latest figures coming from market analysis experts IDC and Strategy Analytics aren’t exactly encouraging. But despite the odds Apple retains its spot as the top dog in the now shrinking tablet market.
