Amazon Fire 7, HD 8 tablets get a breath of new life

Amazon Fire 7, HD 8 tablets get a breath of new life

Almost everything you hear connected to Amazon these days would be about Alexa or the Echo. It's been quite a while since we've last heard from the retail giant's other smart devices, specifically its Fire line of tablets. Is Amazon done with tablets? Not quite! It has just unloaded four new Fire tablets, the Fire 7, Fire HD 8, Fire 7 for Kids, and Fire HD 8 for Kids, that offer the wealth of Amazon's digital content and services, including Alexa, at still ridiculously low prices.

Apple’s 10.5-inch iPad Pro tipped to debut at WWDC

We've been hearing about Apple working on a new addition to the iPad Pro lineup — one with a 10.5-inch display, to be specific — for some time now, and June's Worldwide Developers Conference is expected to be when it will finally be unveiled. This comes from the latest report by Ming-Chi Kuo, the well-regarded KGI Securities analyst with a solid track record when it comes to Apple.

Alcatel A30 TABLET doubles as an 8-inch TV remote

Alcatel A30 TABLET doubles as an 8-inch TV remote

Because of Apple's tight grip on everything, there are a few things that iPads can never be or do. They can never cost below $200 brand new, and they can never have IR blasters. Coincidentally, both of those happen to be the two key features of the Alcatel A30 TABLET. An Android slate, it can be whatever Alcatel wants, limited only by the capabilities of its hardware, which isn't much, to be honest. And Alcatel wants it to be your entertainment device, be it on the tablet's screen or on a bigger screen.

HP Elite x2 refresh addresses first gen flaws

HP Elite x2 refresh addresses first gen flaws

The unexpected success of the Microsoft Surface Pro tablets gave rise to a new breed of 2-in-1 Windows 10 computers that tried to emulate, if not downright imitate, that formula. Unsurprisingly, some of them didn't get it right. At least not on the first try. The HP Elite x2 tried to mix things up a bit and aimed a tad lower. Unfortunately, it also missed the target by some standards. Rather than scrap the product, HP has apparently returned with a gen 2 model that mostly fixes what was wrong with the first.

This is how future Surface tablets and pens should work

This is how future Surface tablets and pens should work

Microsoft's Surface tablets and its Surface Pen appealed to artists and creatives but it was lacking in one aspect that these class of people were used to. It left one hand, the non-pen hand, idle and practically useless. Microsoft addressed that with the Surface Dial, but it was yet another accessory that you could drop, break, or lose. Microsoft Researchers,however, have come up with ways to give that hand something to do, by allowing both pen and finger to be used as the same time, with the finger driving some special UI and actions at the side.

Samsung Chromebook Pro delay blamed on Android app support

Samsung Chromebook Pro delay blamed on Android app support

It is nearly a year since Google promised the invasion of Android apps on Chromebooks. It is also nearly half a year since Samsung and Google flaunted the Chromebook Plus 2-in-1, promised to have full Android app support. Neither have yet come to fruition in any substantial, let alone final way. Although is lesser sibling, the Chomebook Plus, has long launched in the market, the Samsung Chromebook Pro remains unlisted. And, according to The Verge, it could very well be due to that Android app support.

Tablet shipments declined for the tenth quarter in a row, says IDC

Tablet shipments declined for the tenth quarter in a row, says IDC

PCs may have finally caught a break in the first quarter of 2017, but the same can't be said of tablets. At least, that's the depressing (for tablets) picture that IDC is painting. As of Q1 2017, the tablet market has only shipped 36.2 million, a year-over-year drop of 8.5%. More than just the disappointing numbers, this marks the tenth quarter that tablet numbers have been sinking. Which means that tablets have started to wane for more than two years now.

Motorola Moto Android tablet leaks with ‘Productivity Mode’

Motorola is working on a new tablet, according to sources, and it will feature a 'Productivity Mode' previously seen on the Lenovo Yoga Book. Assuming the rumor proves true, this will mark the first time Motorola has introduced a new tablet in a long while, and it'll apparently be one that is, in some small way at least, targeted at users who want to do more than play Candy Crush. Among other things, the tablet will feature a premium look and possibly a 10-inch display.

Kobo Aura H2O is an e-ink ereader that you can take in the pool

Kobo Aura H2O is an e-ink ereader that you can take in the pool

The company Rakuten Kobo has announced the launch of a new e-ink ereader called Kobo Aura H2O, a model that is obviously intended to handle water, hence its name. The Aura H2O is waterproof to depths of up to 2 meters in water for up to an hour at a time, meaning you can take it with you in the pool this summer and not worry about ruining it with an accidental bump into the water. In addition to its waterproof construction, the Kobo features a 6.8-inch display, sporty design, and more.

Gvido dual-screen e-ink music sheet gets an unbelievable price tag

Gvido dual-screen e-ink music sheet gets an unbelievable price tag

Ebook readers use e-paper displays for two reasons. First is the innate nature of such screens, which are easy on the eyes and batteries. Second is the cheaper costs of such components, which translate to a more affordable retail price. If you thought the latter would be true of the Gvido music sheet "tablet" and its two 13-inch e-ink screens, you'd be shocked to find out the truth. Because when the Gvido launches later this year, it will cost just as much as two 12.9-inch iPad Pros.

Logitech Universal Folio turns any tablet into a mobile office

Logitech Universal Folio turns any tablet into a mobile office

For the past weeks, Apple has been leaning heavily on advertising its iPad Pro tablets as more than just a tablet and better than a PC. But what if you don't have an iPad Pro or can't afford one? Or what if you prefer some other tablet with some other OS? Well, there are a variety of solutions other there, but Logitech boasts it has the perfect productivity one. Its new Universal Folio offers a typing experience as close to a laptop you can get, won't topple over on your lap, and even has a pen loop for whatever stylus you fancy.
