I’m so glad the iPad mini isn’t dead

I’m so glad the iPad mini isn’t dead

Sometimes the fates take away the ones you love, and sometimes - like today, and the new iPad mini 5th generation - you get a second chance. Apple's decision not to ditch its smallest tablet and instead give it a new lease of life is, frankly, a surprise in many ways, but it's one I'm pleased to see.

Apple’s iPad range (almost) makes sense now

Apple’s iPad range (almost) makes sense now

Apple's iPad line-up had a big gap in the middle, something the new 10.5-inch iPad Air and iPad mini 2019 address today. Promising to balance affordability and specifications, the new tablets slot right into the midrange, offering not one but two options for those turned off or priced out of Apple's existing iPads.

10.5-inch iPad Air and iPad mini 2019 official: Apple Pencil and bold pricing

10.5-inch iPad Air and iPad mini 2019 official: Apple Pencil and bold pricing

Apple made a surprising move this morning, announcing two new iPads by way of a press release instead of the reveal events we're used to seeing. We doubt many Apple fans will care about the form these announcements took, though, as the company is reviving both the iPad Air and iPad mini lines with these new devices. In the case of the iPad mini, that revival has been a particularly long time coming, as we haven't seen a new one of those in nearly four years.

Apple’s new iPad 2019 could keep two beloved features

Apple’s new iPad 2019 could keep two beloved features

Apple's new iPad (2019) won't follow the iPad Pro in dropping two of the tablet's most popular features, a new report claims, with the iPad 7th generation said to stick fairly closely to the existing design.

Lenovo Tab V7 is a tablet that wants to be a phone

Lenovo Tab V7 is a tablet that wants to be a phone

Foldable phones are going to be the next craze this year but the one question that pops up in everyone's minds is "why?". The biggest and most immediate reason for having a phone that turns into a tablet is to have those two screen sizes in just one device. The compromise, however, is in switching back and forth between those two modes. Lenovo's alternative solution? One device with one screen. That's the new Lenovo Tab V7, a smartphone that's almost big enough to be a tablet too.

If you happen to be riding one of Singapore Airlines' upgraded planes, however, you might worry that the screen is staring back at you in silence. It turns out, those new inflight entertainment systems come with a camera by default, though the airline insists they are also disabled by default.

Android tablets are losing steam, Chrome OS to the rescue

Android tablets are losing steam, Chrome OS to the rescue

Samsung recently announced the Galaxy Tab S5e without much fanfare and it was received with equal amounts of interest. Granted, the tablet sounded more like an "economy" (Samsung will probably call it "essentials") edition of a proper Galaxy Tab S5, but the silent treatment closely echoes the reception of Android tablets of late, even from brands like Lenovo and Huawei.

Android tablets are, for all intents and purposes, dead and there is little to no hope of a revival. Chromebooks, or Chrome OS tablets, do seem to be the way forward but Google and its partners need to be careful lest they repeat the same mistakes all over again.
