iPad Pro, iOS 11 videos prepare you for what’s coming soon

Even more so iPad Pro users, who have a lot of reasons to be excited for this release. To both tease and prepare such users, Apple has released a couple of videos that will help prepare them for the new and admittedly unfamiliar features ahead.

Polaroid’s new phones are (maybe) named after Cosmo Kramer

Polaroid has introduced a pair of new smartphones, and they're both seemingly named after the Seinfeld character Cosmo Kramer. Called the Polaroid Cosmo K and Cosmo K Plus, both phones are being introduced in Mexico alongside a tablet called the Jet C7. Did Polaroid say specifically that they're named after Cosmo Kramer? No. But it's hard to imagine the name was inspired by any other.

Google just patented a new kind of laptop

Google just patented a new kind of laptop

A new kind of notebook computer was granted a patent for Google this week by the USPTO. In this patent, a notebook with a new method for multiple use-case scenarios was presented. Instead of what the patent calls an "uncomfortable 'squishy' feeling", the user would cover the notebook's keyboard when the notebook is in "tablet" mode, doing so with a panel on a powerful hinge.

Tablet sales are still dropping, but detachables offer hope

Tablet sales have been declining for years and there's no sign of that stopping any time soon. Research and data company IDC has just released its latest report on the tablet market, and it paints a bleak image. According to the company, the second quarter of 2017 showed a continued drop in tablet sales, and that despite new cheaper iPads and other slates from popular companies. Tallying up the numbers from across the globe, the tablet industry experienced a 3.4% decrease in sales compared to the same period last year.

ASUS ZenPad Z8s tablet available now from Verizon

Verizon has added two Android phones to its portfolio this week, the ASUS ZenFone AR and Moto E4 Plus, or three if you include the Moto Z2 Force.

Lenovo foldable Android tablet shown off again

Lenovo foldable Android tablet shown off again

Lenovo might not be the biggest name in the mobile scene, smartphones or tablets, but you can’t say it isn’t willing to make some ambitious leaps. From the first commercial AR Tango phone to the Yoga Book tablet and, indirectly, to the modular Moto Z, it has been willing to play around with trends and hype, whether or not it actually continues to produce and support those products. For now, we can at least appreciate how Lenovo is this close to bringing the foldable device dream to life, showing off a working prototype at the Lenovo Tech World and making our mouths drool.

Lenovo Yoga Book Windows – new colors coming

Come September, it will almost be a year since Lenovo wowed the world with its unusual Yoga Book laptop/tablet convertible. You’d think that, just like most mobile devices, it would be time for a new model. Lenovo will indeed launch two new Yoga Books in September, but they will barely be different from last year’s model. Their only difference is that they will come in two new colors of Pearl White and Ruby Red and nothing more.

Dell Latitude 12 7285 comes bearing wireless charging support

Dell Latitude 12 7285 comes bearing wireless charging support

Although wireless charging has been around for years, it isn’t still a staple of modern life, particularly with smartphones. That might suddenly change if Apple jumps into the fray as rumored. Perhaps trying to get a lead on others, Dell is bringing wireless charging capability to a device you might expect the least: a 2-in-1 laptop. Dell has just launched the Latitude 7000 12 7285, touted as the worlds first 2-in-1 to support wireless charging, though in a rather odd way.

Youyota Sailfish OS tablet tries to revive a failed Jolla dream

Youyota Sailfish OS tablet tries to revive a failed Jolla dream

Just because you’re a somewhat popular company that managed to successfully deliver a crowdfunded product doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be able to do it again. Not even if you rake in more than $2 million in funding. That’s the bitter reality that Jolla faced last year when it had to cancel its successfully funded Sailfish OS tablet. Some, however, still believe in that vision and have taken to Indiegogo to try and resuscitate the Jolla Tablet, now as the Youyota Tablet. And based simply on numbers, it seems there are still many who still believe in that dream too.

Nokia “Mercury” was the Surface Mini Microsoft should have done

Nokia “Mercury” was the Surface Mini Microsoft should have done

Not all devices, even those highly leaked ones, see the light of day. Some get unceremoniously abandoned on the cutting room floor. Last week, we caught a glimpse of the much fabled and sadly still-born Microsoft Surface Mini. Now we're being treated to another canceled 8-inch Windows device, the Nokia "Mercury", which would have become the Lumia 2020. Unfortunately for Nokia, it never came to be. Unfortunately for Microsoft, this could have been a better hit.
