This new iPad Pro bend test raises some questions

How much pressure should the new iPad Pro stand up to before its aluminum and glass bends? That's the question being asked today, after a bend test of Apple's latest tablet showed it's possible - with your hands alone - to fold the iOS slate in half, and not in the good "Samsung foldable phone" way.

Samsung foldable tablet patent folds in three parts

Samsung foldable tablet patent folds in three parts

Pretty soon, Samsung might earn the reputation of a company that folds. In a good way of course. It has just revealed its prototype for the first foldable phone, expected to actually hit markets next year, but it has been playing around with foldable concept far longer than that.

That may come from a recently published patent showing a tablet-sized device folding in three parts to form a rather thick phone.

11-inch iPad Pro iFixit teardown is a must-read for glue lovers

iPad Pro Review (2018): Am I wrong, or is Apple?

iPad Pro Review (2018): Am I wrong, or is Apple?

Nobody can agree on whether a tablet is a computer, or indeed what a computer really is, and Apple's new iPad Pro only pours fuel into that controversy. Faster, more flexible, and more resolutely targeting professionals who demand performance with their portability, nobody can argue with the fact that the 2018 iPad Pro is Apple's hardware expertise in full effect. Whether it's a replacement for your laptop, though, is a far more personal thing.

Previously available only from Costco, Microsoft is now selling a version of the Surface Go that sits cozily between its two existing configurations in both specs and price.
