Wacom One is an entry-level pen display for budding artists

Wacom offers a bunch of different pen displays for artists, designers, and content creators, and today the company padded out its lineup with a new entry-level model. Introduced at CES 2020, the Wacom One is billed as a "pen display for a new generation of creators." Seasoned Wacom users probably won't find a ton to get excited about here, because it's clear that the Wacom One is aimed at those who are just starting out and want to save some cash before they dive into something more serious.

Intel Horseshoe Bend prototype turns a 17-inch tablet into a 13-inch laptop

Intel Horseshoe Bend prototype turns a 17-inch tablet into a 13-inch laptop

Contrary to earlier whispers, Intel wasn't shying away from foldable PCs because it found Windows 10X to still be unsuitable for the public's eyes. It did skip mentioning Microsoft's future Windows version but the CES 2020 crowd might not yet care about that, at least for now. They may be more interested in seeing foldable devices and Intel definitely had some to show, including its own take on a gigantic OLED screen that folds down into a more manageable laptop size.

Dell Concept Duet and Concept Ori are Windows foldables for the future

Dell Concept Duet and Concept Ori are Windows foldables for the future

CES 2020 is clearly the year for foldables, with Dell bringing two clamshell concepts that it believes will preview the future of notebooks and tablets. The Dell Concept Duet and the Dell Concept Ori aren't, it's worth noting right from the start, intended for production in their current form. Instead, they're Dell's vision of what a dual-screen or a foldable screen device might look like in the not-too-distant future.

iPad Pro 2020 leaked: Do you want glass or metal?

iPad Pro 2020 leaked: Do you want glass or metal?

A pair of iPad Pro models were leaked this morning with full 3D renders that show a brand new vision. This is the new wave iPad Pro, in two sizes, both with a three-lens backside camera array with a giant LED flash and abilities we must imagine will equal those of the latest round of iPhone devices. One major element remains unknown, at this point - will the backs be aluminum, or will the backs be glass?

Chuwi MiniBook Review: Big potential with small problems

Chuwi MiniBook Review: Big potential with small problems

Netbooks may have been short-lived but their legacy lives on in quite a number of different kinds of computing devices. On one side, Chromebooks share the same cloud-centric DNA, this time defined by Google’s platform based on what is essentially a web browser on steroids. On another side, a breed of mini-laptops have popped up, perhaps inspired by the dream of portability that Netbooks once promised. Some may scoff at their diminutive size but a niche market has proven it can be profitable though with proportionally small margins. The latest to join this fray is Chuwi MiniBook and we take a good hard look at it to see if the small laptop will be able to deliver the same impressive experiences Chuwi’s other products have so far been able to offer.

Lenovo Chrome OS tablet could take another stab at a dying niche market

Lenovo Chrome OS tablet could take another stab at a dying niche market

It ended even before it had the chance to begin or something to that extent. For a brief moment, it seemed that Chrome OS was on its way to embracing a new form factor beyond typical laptops or convertible Chromebooks. Standalone or at least detachable Chrome OS slates definitely seemed within Google's sights until it wasn't anymore. Now it seems that Chrome OS tablets are all but extinct or forgotten but that's not stopping Lenovo from trying its hand in a market that Google just quit.

Surface Duo and Surface Neo need these 4 things to truly take off

Surface Duo and Surface Neo need these 4 things to truly take off

Foldable phones are a hot topic in the mobile market but they are still far from something that most consumers will be able to use, let alone afford. It will be quite a while before flexible screens become reliable and durable enough to meet the standards of those who can afford them. In the meantime, a different breed of foldable phones, those with dual screens, is sparking up some interest, especially with Microsoft's long-awaited Courier, or Surface Duo rather. That admittedly eccentric and niche phone runs the risk of becoming a spectacular dud unless Microsoft takes the time to learn from LG's dual screen foray.

Chuwi MiniBook, HiPad LTE, GBox Pro remind users there are always other options

It's not unusual that big brands like Apple, Samsung, Microsoft, Lenovo, and the like get the lion's share of the attention and the sales. They are industry giants for a reason but their imposing stature could lead some to believe that they are the only ones out there. The holiday shopping season is upon us and these large corporations are putting their big marketing machines to work overtime. Companies like Chuwi, however, are giving consumers a nudge to remind that they might not need to go bankrupt, provided they're willing to make a few compromises.

You can’t do real work on Android, at least not all of it

You can’t do real work on Android, at least not all of it

While not an Apple hater, I personally prefer more open or at least less restrictive platforms and devices. That primarily translates to Linux and open source software on the desktop and Android on mobile. But if there's one thing I have always been jealous of Apple's mobile ecosystem is how it has grown to enable more complex uses and workflows, especially on iPads. It's no longer so ridiculous or so rare to find people who are proud to proclaim that they do their work or even live solely on an iPad, specifically an iPad Pro. Unfortunately, the same can't be said of Android.

Galaxy Tab Fold could be a clamshell tablet you can put in your pocket

Galaxy Tab Fold could be a clamshell tablet you can put in your pocket

The Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X take a slightly different solution to the same problem, that of offering smartphone users a larger screen while not forcing them to shove tablets in their pockets. While this type of foldable device does have some allure, there are other problems that can also be addressed by such flexible screens. The Motorola Razr 2019, for example, makes a regular phone even more compact. This Samsung patent also does the same, this time for a phone-like tablet instead.
