Galaxy Tab S4 Intelligent Scan to compete with new iPad Pro

Galaxy Tab S4 Intelligent Scan to compete with new iPad Pro

There are only a few remaining notable Android tablets left in the market, which gives Apple a huge advantage in that market. It might widen the gap even further if rumors of the upcoming Face ID enabled iPad Pro are true. Unsurprisingly, Samsung might try to preempt that with its upcoming Galaxy Tab S4.

PCs are on the rise again after six years: here’s why

For years now, prophets of doom have been talking about the death of the PC. To some extent, they are right.

Last week, both Gartner and IDC published numbers that, for the first time in six years, showed growth for the steadily shrinking market. And while both market researchers advise cautious optimism, it’s hard to deny the trend that their statistics show: the PC isn’t going anywhere.

Galaxy Tab A2 might have another Bixby feature

It seems that Samsung might be out to prove Google wrong when it comes to Android tablets. More than just preparing the premium Galaxy Tab S4, the manufacturer is also expected to unveil the Galaxy Tab Advanced 2 and the Galaxy Tab A2 10.5, a.k.a. Galaxy Tab A2 XL.

HP Chromebook x2 variant sounds like the Surface Go

Microsoft launched the Surface Go clearly as a response to Apple’s and Google’s stronger push into the education market. Specifically, it’s meant to battle the 2018 iPad and Acer Chromebook Tab 10 head-on. There might, however, be something brewing in the Chrome OS camp that could undo the Surface Go’s advantage. According to a leaked HP technical document, there will be variants of the Chromebook x2, the first detachable Chromebook, on the way, and one of them runs on the same processor as the Surface Go.

It is the affordable Surface that people have been talking about recently and the portable Surface that some may have been waiting for.
