Galaxy Tab S7 XL Lite will be the odd name of a mid-range tablet

Galaxy Tab S7 XL Lite will be the odd name of a mid-range tablet

Samsung is one of the few device makers still manufacturing and selling tablets, at least under its own name. In fact, it litters the market with tablets that all start to sound and look the same, especially if you don't note what year they were made. It seems that Samsung will be taking a very short hiatus from that and will be giving its next tablet a name that you might remember because of how almost ridiculous it sounds.

iPad Pro mini leak tips a new future for tiny tablet

iPad Pro mini leak tips a new future for tiny tablet

The next small iPad will likely appear in a new lane, with a new look and newly increased power. This new device could be called iPad Mini Pro, it could be called iPad Pro mini, it could just be called iPad mini (with an understanding that it's time for a significant refresh). The newest tip seems to agree with recent analysis from Ming-Chi Kuo, who said there'd be a new iPad mini that was somewhat like a smaller version of the iPad Air.

Google responds to Apple App Tracking Transparency with new rules for Android

Google responds to Apple App Tracking Transparency with new rules for Android

Google released a notice today about the future of Android and user data transparency. While not a direct response to Apple's update with iOS 14.5 - at least not explicitly - Google's "pre-announcement" of an upcoming safety section in Google Play should effectively keep the two operating systems in-step on several privacy-centric fronts. The new section in Google Play for Android apps will "help people understand the data an app collects or shares, if that data is secured, and additional details that impact privacy and security."

Lenovo Yoga X tablet teased as a portable HDMI monitor

Lenovo Yoga X tablet teased as a portable HDMI monitor

There are only a few notable Android tablet makers these and Samsung probably takes the top spot in that market. Lenovo, however, takes the cake when it comes to unique features. It once had an Android tablet that transformed into a makeshift Amazon Echo Show and another that you could hang on walls or in the kitchen. It seems that its next trick will be to launch an Android tablet that not only has HDMI out but also has HDMI input to turn it into a portable monitor.

Android Entertainment Space lets Google invest in tablets without new hardware

Android Entertainment Space lets Google invest in tablets without new hardware

Google revealed a new Android tablet experience called Entertainment Space in May of 2021. This new experience - a new home screen replacement of sorts - is a different approach to Android. It's difficult to see what they presented with Entertainment Space without thinking about Amazon's series of Fire Tablet devices and their take on Android. The software, as Google showed it on May 5, 2021, centers on Google-hosted media - everything from the Google Play app store, books store, videos, shows, and games.

New iPad mini still coming this year, foldable iPhone in 2023

New iPad mini still coming this year, foldable iPhone in 2023

The iPad mini was noticeably absent during Apple's big event last month. That's not exactly surprising as the company seemed to focus more on its more powerful products, particularly the iPad Pros with Apple M1 silicon. That doesn't exactly mean that the iPad mini that has been appearing in rumors since the start of the year will be a no-show. Instead, Ming-Chi Kuo says that the smaller slate has just been delayed to sometime later this year.

Apple Clips gets AR Spaces thanks to LiDAR

Apple Clips gets AR Spaces thanks to LiDAR

Although it was one of the first on the mobile AR train with Project Tango, some may have felt that Google dropped the ball on that area. Professing more interest in AR than VR, Apple has been promoting the practical applications of its ARKit framework since day one, enabling experiences like placing furniture in your room to test them out, enhancing mapping and navigation tools, and the like. Of course, there's always room for some whimsical uses, like the new AR Spaces you can add to your video clips using the latest Clips app.

Your new iPad release date tipped for late May

Earlier this month we got a peek at the next new iPad collection, including new iPad Pro in two sizes. In a slightly odd fashion, Apple revealed their for-sale date before revealing solid release dates. As such, we don't yet know exactly when the new iPad Pro 11-inch and iPad Pro 12.9-inch models will be shipping. A tip today suggests we'll see said devices shipped in late May.

Galaxy Z Fold trademark confirms foldable tablet

Galaxy Z Fold trademark confirms foldable tablet

Although there are a few companies now putting out foldable phones, it's hard to deny that Samsung is still at the top, with no less than four models under its belt. It is expected to put out its third generation of such phones this year, but there's still one kind of foldable device that's missing from its portfolio. If recent leaks are to be believed, however, a Galaxy Z Fold tablet is already in the works and its existence may have just been confirmed by Samsung itself.
