One Mix 3, Chuwi MiniBook, GPD Pocket 2 Max race for 8″ laptop crown

Netbooks are coming back in style. That is if you believe the likes of Chuwi, GPD, and One Netbook. These Chinese brands have been pushing small, large pocket-sized palmtop computers for quite a while now and they're taking the next big step in that direction. Literally, too. They have announced their 8-inch racehorses in an attempt to offer a more comfortable typing experience that you can still put in your extremely large pocket or petite bag.

Steam Link iOS app returns for real this time

Steam Link iOS app returns for real this time

Apple is being criticized, even sued, for holding its App Stores so tightly to the point of being anti-competitive. Of course, it rightfully owns that App Store and until something drastic changes, what it says goes and app developers have no choice but to find ways to compromise. That seems to be the situation Valve found itself in last year with its Steam Link mobile app. Thankfully, that may now be a thing of the past as the app has popped up on the iTunes App Store again. Hopefully, for good this time.

Photoshop CC for iPad closed beta opens up applications

Photoshop CC for iPad closed beta opens up applications

Not too long ago, Adobe promised that it would be bringing the full, or at least almost full, powers of Photoshop to Apple's newest computer, the iPad Pro. Given all the bad rap it's getting these days, Adobe could use some good publicity. Perhaps it's just a coincidence, then, that Adobe has opened up the process for getting into its exclusive Photoshop on the iPad beta program. Provided, of course, you can make a case why you should be part of that exclusive club.

Intuos Pro Small rounds out Wacom’s trio of pen tablets

It's been a little while since we last heard from Wacom's Intuos Pro line, but today it stepped back into the lineup with a new Pro Small tablet. The new Intuos Pro Small will be joining the existing Pro Medium and Large tablets, and Wacom says that with its launch, the Intuos Pro line is now complete.

Galaxy Tab S5e has a Wi-Fi problem caused by poor design

Galaxy Tab S5e has a Wi-Fi problem caused by poor design

It's been nearly a decade since Apple received a lot of flak for its "you're holding it wrong" response to problems with the iPhone 4's reception. But while Apple has long gotten past that particular blunder, it seems that some manufacturers haven't learned enough from it. Samsung's latest high-end phones are thankfully safe from such a design flaw but its latest mid-range tablet isn't. So if you have a Galaxy Tab S5e and notice a drop in your Wi-Fi connection, just remember that you might be holding it wrong.

Wacom MobileStudio Pro 13 Review: The obvious best choice for illustrators

The Wacom MobileStudio Pro 13 is the no-compromise version of every other stylus tablet or phone on the market today. This device has the Wacom Pro Pen 2, the most idyllic digital stylus I've ever used - and quite possibly the best digital stylus available in the world today. While other machines aim to fill all your needs at once, the Wacom MobileStudio Pro 13 is a creative tool that's focused squarely on that one role. This is an illustrator's tablet.

HP TouchPad gets another lease on life with Android 9 Pie ROM

HP TouchPad gets another lease on life with Android 9 Pie ROM

It isn't just wights that refuse to die (no GoT spoilers here, sorry). Even some devices do, too, if given enough attention, love, and a dose of Android. Nearing a decade since it launched, the HP TouchPad seems to refuse to bite the dust. Especially now that it has just gotten yet another chance with the latest version of Android that isn't even available yet on some of last year's smartphones.

iOS USB mouse support rumor will make iPad Pro owners go wild

iOS USB mouse support rumor will make iPad Pro owners go wild

Apple has been advertising its iPad Pros from day one as the new generation of computers but not many believed it. Most of those have to do less with the excellent hardware and more with the limitations of the iOS mobile platform. Apple has been slowly working to address those concerns and it might soon be making the last step needed to truly make the iPad Pro a desktop or laptop replacement. It might, in just a few months, finally add mouse support.

AT&T Galaxy View 2 confirmed in promo video ahead of launch

AT&T Galaxy View 2 confirmed in promo video ahead of launch

The first Galaxy View probably found a niche yet profitable market of Samsung and AT&T are at it again with a sequel. Confirming what was initially just rumored, the carrier released a video extolling the qualities of the gigantic tablet. Unfortunately, that's all that it does as AT&T hasn't yet announced any other detail, how much this "unique experience" will cost.

Galaxy S9, S10, and Galaxy Tab S5e now have Linux on DeX

Galaxy S9, S10, and Galaxy Tab S5e now have Linux on DeX

Samsung's latest flagships are so powerful you could almost use them as a portable PC. Actually, you already can if you don't mind running Android in Samsung's special DeX mode. But if you really wanted desktop applications, you're mostly out of luck. Not unless you're comfortable using Linux via Samsung's still beta Linux on DeX. Fortunately, the company is now expanding support of that platform to its latest flagship smartphones and, surprisingly, its mid-range tablet as well.

Galaxy View 2 to come with a more usable stand

Galaxy View 2 to come with a more usable stand

Remember the Samsung Galaxy View? You'd be forgiven if you had forgotten or even never heard of this oversized tablet that isn't a tablet. It predated smart displays by a few years and seemed to offer little in terms of practical use. That, however, doesn't seem to have discouraged Samsung and even AT&T from making a second one. Fortunately, it seems that the Galaxy View 2 will correct some of its predecessor's missteps.
