No Android Oreo for the NVIDIA Shield Tablets

Quality Android tablets are in decline these days, but the Shield Tablet from NVIDIA has been one of the better options of the last few years, even for those with little interest in gaming. Unfortunately for owners of these devices — both the original Shield Tablet from 2014, and 2015's Shield Tablet K1 — NVIDIA has now revealed they won't be upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo, the newest version of the mobile OS.

Razer’s smartphone could be unveiled in three weeks

It might not be as talked about as the iPhone X or the Essential PH-1, but if you're any gamer, especially a PC gamer, of some sort, then the much speculated "Razer Phone" is just as exciting a concept as any. And now the company best known for its gaming accessories and, more recently, gaming laptops is drumming up the hype around its "biggest unveiling" that it has scheduled right at the start of November. And while a smartphone is definitely at the top of the wishlist, the teaser for it might suggest something bigger.

Honor 7X, WaterPlay tablet bring premium features to mid-range

Honor 7X, WaterPlay tablet bring premium features to mid-range

You don't always have to pay premium to get premium features or even just premium looks. That might be the line of thinking behind Huawei sub-brand Honor's two new mobile devices. The Honor 7X, for example, is probably one of the very few mid-range smartphones sporting that new favorite 18:9 aspect ratio. And at a time when tablets seem to be in a decline, the Honor WaterPlay brings one that is quite the dust and water proof beast.

Surface Pro LTE models are coming in December

Surface Pro LTE models are coming in December

It's no Surface Pro 5 but, given the changes Microsoft has made, it could have very well be called one. But perhaps one of the most significant changes made to Redmond's premium 2-in-1 device is the addition of built-in LTE connectivity. That, however, was four months ago and, save for a premature preorder listing, there was nary a word about it. At Ignite 2017 this week, a company spokesperson semi-officially confirmed at least a launch date, which will take place right at the start of December.

Galaxy Tab Active 2 is an unexpected mid-range tablet

Galaxy Tab Active 2 is an unexpected mid-range tablet

Way back in 2014, Samsung announced a somewhat unexpected tablet. While rugged tablets weren’t exactly rare even back then, a rugged tablet in 8-inch size and a “ C Pen” stylus definitely was. That was the Galaxy Tab Active, pictured above, which was pretty much a mid-range affair. Despite the tablet market regarded to be in a slump, Samsung is surprising us again with a successor to the 2014 slab, which keeps the size and the screen but bumps up what’s inside. Meet the soon to be Galaxy Tab Active 2.

iPad Pro prices increase, but not for the reason you think

Galaxy Tab A2 S leaked photos show a good-looking disappointment

Samsung fans should probably be thankful the company is even making Android tablets at all, but tablets it does put out seem to be a shadow of its former self. The Galaxy Tab S3’s specs seemed to be a mismatch to its gorgeous looks, not to mention its price. It seems that Samsung will be repeating that dichotomy with the Galaxy Tab A2 S, a.k.a. the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017), which will look somewhat decent but be burdened by half-decent hardware.

Chuwi LapBook Air, Hi9 Tablet, SurBook entice IFA 2017 crowd

IFA 2017 presented a ton of new products, many of them premium and many of them premium priced. It might be too easy to think that the tech world is split between expensive high-end machines and cheap, underpowered gadgets. There exists, however, a wonderful world in between, where function, form, and price are in near perfect harmony.
