The totally new 10.5-inch iPad Pro is the new darling in the tablet market, eclipsing even its larger contemporary. Sure, the iPad Pro 12.9 is an upgrade over its predecessor, but the 10.5 model is praised for hitting the Goldilocks size of being "just right" for creativity, productivity, and portability.

These are the Kodak Android tablets nobody asked for

It's no secret that camera makers have felt threatened by the popularity and growing capability of smartphones and their cameras. Some have simply chosen to ignore it and focus on their higher end. Some have tried to make their point and shoot cameras more affordable and enticing. Some, like Kodak, have decided to just jump on board. After putting out the Ektra smartphone, Kodak has decided to do likewise for tablets. No Ek-centric name this time. These are just called KODAK Tablets, and you might have to think really hard why you'd want one.

iPad Pro 10.5 Review (2017): Half the laptop-replacement story

Do they break new, uncharted ground, or are they last year's flagship, polished and refined for another attempt? At first glance, the iPad Pro 10.5's familiar shape makes it easy to conclude evolution, but I'm not so sure.

iPad Pro 10.5 iFixit teardown unmasks an iPad Pro 12.9 Mini

iPad Pro 10.5 iFixit teardown unmasks an iPad Pro 12.9 Mini

Given their proximity in sizes, the new iPad Pro 10.5 is more often compared to last year’s iPad Pro 9.7. But, as they say, looks can be deceiving. In tearing down the new “Goldilocks” of iPad Pros, iFixit discovered that the 10.5-inch newcomer has, in fact, more in common with the larger 12.9-inch model from late 2015 when it comes to the internals. But rather than being a bad thing, in some ways it could be the start of a more standard, and only so slightly easier to repair, iPad Pro line.

iPad Pro 9.7 vs iPad Pro 10.5: is it worth the upgrade?

iPad Pro 9.7 vs iPad Pro 10.5: is it worth the upgrade?

Instead of consolidating its tablet lines, Apple just diversified it. Well, somewhat. We still don't know the ultimate fate of the iPad mini line, now believed to have been made irrelevant by the iPhone 7 Plus segment. The new non-Pro 9.7-inch iPad seems to combine both the original iPad and the iPad Air. And the iPad Pro 9.7, without a successor, has practically been displaced by its 10.5-inch sibling. With the fate of the smaller iPad Pro now in limbo, consumers might be wondering if its time to make an upgrade. We take a deeper look between the two more portable iPad Pros to give you that answer.

Android versus iOS 11: what Google needs to do

Android versus iOS 11: what Google needs to do

Although the upcoming iOS 11 naturally has something for both iPhones and iPads, Apple made it quite clear that this release is special for its tablets. In fact, it even called it the biggest iOS release for the iPad in the history of iOS releases for iPads. Given the new features, iOS 11 on the iPad Pro was immediately compared with the Microsoft Surface Pro and its cousins. Curiously, there has been very little comparisons made with Android. Ironically, Android is in better shape to take on Apple’s new tablet champion, but it definitely needs some work to widen its lead. Here’s some of the things Google can do to make that happen. Call this a wish list for Android P.

iPad Pro with iOS 11 isn’t enough to compete with the Surface Pro

As someone who has uncharacteristically fallen in love with his 9.7-inch iPad Pro, the revelation of iOS 11’s features was like an answer to long-held wishes.

But as someone who also owns a well-aged Surface Pro 3, the iPad Pro is still a few leagues away from toppling the Surface Pro and its kin. Because unless Apple makes very drastic changes, the iPad, even with iOS 11, is still pretty much a gigantic iPhone.
