Lenovo Yoga Book with Chrome OS might be no more

Lenovo Yoga Book with Chrome OS might be no more

The rather innovative and daring Lenovo Yoga Book was somewhat great as a Windows 2-in-1 tablet and OK as an Android slate. It seemed, however, perfect for that other hybrid operating system, Chrome OS. Part desktop OS and soon part Android desktop, there have been signs that this other Google OS might be coming to the Lenovo Yoga Book soon. All those hopes, however, may have been dashed by a source code change that hints, but doesn't confirm, that a Chromebook Yoga Book is, for all intents and purposes, dead.

Surface beats iPad in JD Power tablet satisfaction survey for first time ever

Surface beats iPad in JD Power tablet satisfaction survey for first time ever

The JD Power 2017 U.S. Tablet Satisfaction Study has shown the Microsoft Surface Tablet line to top the iPad for the first time since the study began. Granted, that's not an incredibly big amount of time - the study is in its 6th year this year. But in general Apple's iPad wins by a significant amount over the next closest device - in quite a few studies, not just this one by JD Power. It's a bit of a surprise to find the iPad in second place.

Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 breaks cover with 13MP camera, talented screen

Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 breaks cover with 13MP camera, talented screen

Samsung's launch of the Galaxy Tab S3, though received with some mixed reactions, might have inspired the "Apple of China" to take another stab at the Android tablet market as well. It has been quite a while since Xiaomi has put out a Mi Pad, so you'd think it would make a big splash about it. The Mi Pad 3's arrival, however, is somewhat on the silent side which probably fits its less than extravagant personality.

Android 7.1.2 rolling out first to Pixel C, Nexus Player

Android 7.1.2 rolling out first to Pixel C, Nexus Player

Android Nougat might sound like old news, now that Android O has formally been teased in a developer preview. But that's not to say that the nutty treat isn't going to have one last hurrah before it goes out of season. Following the second beta that was released just a few weeks ago, Android 7.1.2 is finally rolling out in its final form, at least according to some user reports. Strangely enough, the final Android Nougat update is apparently landing first on the Pixel C and the Nexus Player, two of Google's older devices that are in dire need of some love.

New 9.7-inch iPad gets low repairability marks from iFixit

Apple's new 9.7-inch iPad is barely a week old, but iFixit is already on the scene, tearing it down and figuring out just how easy it is for average consumers to repair. In the freshly posted teardown, iFixit notes that this new iPad is strikingly similar to the original iPad Air. So much so, in fact, that in a side-by-side shot of the internals, it's hard to tell the two apart.

Apple’s new 9.7 iPad cuts the price to coax tablet upgrades

Apple’s new 9.7 iPad cuts the price to coax tablet upgrades

Apple's iPad is the current crown-holder in tablet sales, and now there's a new, cheaper version of the 9.7-inch iPad in an attempt to hold onto that record. Priced from $329, the new iPad 9.7 is partly Apple's attempt to coax long-time owners of its older tablets to upgrade, something tablet users in general have proved more reluctant to do than they might with their smartphones. In that vein, it offers a few notable improvements.

Superscreen transforms your Android, iPhone into a tablet

Superscreen transforms your Android, iPhone into a tablet

Ever wished your smartphone had a much larger screen but don’t exactly want a larger phone, much less a tablet? While LG tried to address that desire in the LG G6, it could only go so far. A tablet would mean yet another device to carry and keep in sync. Not to mention yet another potentially expensive purchase. Wouldn’t it be grand if your smartphone could just magically have a larger display? Short of folding devices and actual magic, that is exactly the dream that the Superscreen Kickstarter is seeking to make come true. With your funding help, of course.

Android update 7.1.2 brings goodies for Nexus 6P, Pixel C

Although rumors about the next major Android version, the still unnamed Android “O”, are starting to trickle in, there’s still a lot of work to be done for Android Nougat. Feature parity among supported devices, specifically Google’s own devices, is one such area of improvement. Fortunately, it seems that Google has heard the cries of its Nexus users and has started rolling out the Android 7.1.2 that brings, among other things, fingerprint gestures to the Nexus 6P and some UI improvements to the Pixel C tablet.

Google Assistant isn’t heading to tablets any time soon

Google Assistant isn’t heading to tablets any time soon

Google was surprisingly quick at making its smart assistant available to more devices outside of its own product line. Once a defining feature of the Google Pixel and the Google Home, Google Assistant has, starting last month, rolled out slowly to other Android phones, presuming they’re running on Marshmallow or later, even if they’re not a Nexus. Unfortunately, those who have been waiting for word on Assistant’s arrival on Android tablets did just get that word, and it’s not the one they wanted to hear: “no”.

A couple of days back, the Galaxy Tab S3 appeared on Best Buy's website, complete with pricing information that put the tablet at $599.99.

iPad mini Pro said to be one of four new iPads coming

iPad mini Pro said to be one of four new iPads coming

We’ll let those words sink in for a while. It was recently leaked that Apple had not three but four new iPads in the works, probably slated for next month’s big reveal. Three of those have more or less been leaked to death in the past, but the fourth one is a new mystery. According to a Greek retailer, that fourth one is actually a new iPad mini. And not just any iPad mini, but one that has a “Pro” appended to its name.
