Chrome OS version of Lenovo Yoga Book coming next year

Chrome OS version of Lenovo Yoga Book coming next year

Released earlier this year, Lenovo's new Yoga Book is an interesting take on the 2-in-1 tablet form factor. The device drops a traditional physical keyboard for a touch surface that can be used for both typing and stylus input, and it comes in both Android and Windows models. But now the Yoga Book is about to get a lot more appealing, especially for those users who prefer Chrome OS.

Microsoft Surface: what Redmond finally got right

Microsoft Surface: what Redmond finally got right

Microsoft, unsurprisingly, made a rather bold boast this week. It attributed the strong sales of its Surface devices to a growing dissatisfaction among MacBook Pro users. While many will definitely call BS on that, it's futile to deny facts. The Surface Pro tablets and the Surface Book laptop has done quite well. An achievement for a company that has traditionally sucked at devices (save for the Xbox). That success is definitely surprising and unexpected, which makes us ask, "how the hell did Microsoft pull it off?"

reMarkable e-paper tablet is a doodler’s dream come true

reMarkable e-paper tablet is a doodler’s dream come true

We live in a somewhat schizophrenic digital age. On the one hand, the pull of the paperless workplace or classroom is irresistible. On the other hand, the psychological and practical benefits of writing with pen and paper are hard to dispute. For years, modern users have been torn between this digital and analogue dichotomy. The answer, however, might be upon us, if reMarkable is to believed. Putting out digital device of the same name, the reMarkable tablet is, in a nutshell, an e-ink reader you can write on. And it is as conflicted as the problem it tries to solve.

New Amazon Echo may look a lot like the iMac G4

Amazon's next Echo will have Alexa speaking on the kitchen counter - so says rumors which paint this as a higher-end device. This next Amazon device would fit in with the rest of the Echo-branded smart home assistant products.

New iPad leaked in Taiwan

New iPad leaked in Taiwan

Apple's next new iPad is tipped to come with a body that's similar to today's 9.7-inch iPad Pro, with less bezel. This means that a larger display will be able to fit in a space that's the same as current-era iPads. As such, the same cases and docks MAY be able to fit, but a slightly thicker body could ruin that bit before it happens.

Lenovo Miix 520 leaked, still looks like a Surface tablet

Lenovo Miix 520 leaked, still looks like a Surface tablet

Microsoft’s Surface line of tablets definitely inspired not a few of its hardware partners to follow its trail, not just in concept but, in some cases, even in design. WinFuture has just gotten word of such a 2-in-1 tablet coming from Lenovo, said to be the Miix 520. If that looks familiar, aside from a Surface Pro deja vu, of course, you might have caught a glimpse of the Lenovo Miix 510 unveiled not long ago. You wouldn’t be off the mark, as this Miix 520 is practically a refresh, with beefier specs and presumably higher price tag.

Eve V 2-in-1 tries to beat the Surface Pro at its own game

Eve V 2-in-1 tries to beat the Surface Pro at its own game

It’s hard to deny the effect that Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablets have had on the computing landscape. Despite a rocky start, the “tablet that can replace your laptop” has created a new category that now everyone is trying to emulate or compete with, including, to some extent, Apple. There is, however, always room for something better, which is what Finnish startup Eve Tech is proposing with the Eve V. And, unlike Microsoft, the Eve V was designed right from the start with consumers on the co-pilot seat.

Huawei MediaPad M3, other tablets finally come to the US

Huawei MediaPad M3, other tablets finally come to the US

Slowly but surely, Huawei is bringing its brand to the US, and not just through its honor sub-brand. It has had a few of its phones, including the Nexus 6P, sold in this major market, but its tablets are nowhere to be seen. That changes this month, however, as the Chinese manufacture brings not one, not even two, but three of its Android tablets to the country, with the MediaPad M3, T1 7.0 and T1 10.0 coming this week. And it doesn’t end there, as Huawei is also bringing the MediaPad M2 in December, with a rather perplexing proposition.

NOOK Tablet 7″ challenges Amazon’s cheapest Kindle

Barnes & Noble has introduced a new NOOK tablet to take on Amazon's cheapest Kindle offering. The item, much like the most basic Kindle Fire, is priced at $49.99 USD and features a 7-inch display. B&N says the new offering is a full tablet in the grandest sense of the word, including access to the Google Play Store and all the Android apps on it. That may make it more appealing than the Kindle Fire, which provides access to Amazon's Appstore.

3 new iPads, including bezel-free 10.9in model, tipped for March

Now that this year's new iPhone has been launched, expectations are turning towards the next generation of iPad. Apple's last tablet releases included the debut of the large 12.9-inch iPad Pro, followed by a more the more reasonably sized iPad Pro in the 9.7-inch form-factor. But now rumors are buzzing that next year will see refreshed iPad Pros in both those previous sizes, along with a brand-new 10.9-inch model featuring a bezel-free design.

Samsung itself is hesitating on foldable phones, says report

Samsung itself is hesitating on foldable phones, says report

Just when you thought that Samsung is really close to launching a foldable smartphone next year, it seems that it’s still not a sure deal. Or if it does come, it will be even more limited than the eccentric and curved Galaxy Round. According to reports, the embattled Korean OEM is indeed already capable of producing a foldable smartphone by late 2017, albeit in small quantities. Uncharacteristic of Samsung, however, is the report that the company is actually exercising caution, having second thoughts about the feasibility of such a product.

Eve V tablet’s crowdsourced specs are final, ready for Indiegogo

Eve V tablet’s crowdsourced specs are final, ready for Indiegogo

Most crowdfunding campaigns simply dump ideas onto interested backers, though some do change course drastically due to strong backer demand. The folks behind the Eve V 2-in-1 tablet, however, have taken a rather revolutionary, and most likely risky, approach. Right from the very beginning, they’ve asked would-be backers what they want. Of course, the startup eventually needed to put its foot down somewhere, and the foot has indeed come down. The specs for the Eve V have just been finalized, and the tablet is finally ready to head to Indiegogo for the real litmus test.
