Surface Pro 8 configuration options may have an LTE disappointment

Although it still enjoys some popularity as Microsoft's premier hardware product line, it has been quite a while since it has made a big change for its Surface products, especially the oldest of them all, the Surface Pro. It seems that 2021 won't be any different, at least during the early months when Microsoft is expected to launch its next line of portable computers. But while the next-gen Surface Pro 8 will likely see some welcome upgrades, a new leak hints that it won't be spread equally when it comes to LTE support.

Samsung has a robust lineup of more affordable devices itself, and one of the more recent additions to that is the Galaxy Tab A7.

Samsung tri-fold phone, rollable tablet teased in official images

Samsung still needs to check off a few things from its list before its foldable phone could be truly considered complete but that isn't stopping it from cooking up other things. Of course, with a company as big as Samsung, it is often working on other things in the background, things that may never see the light of day.

2021 iPad Pro could have custom Apple mmWave 5G module

Although it's difficult to top the waves that Apple made with its M1 Silicon this year, its early 2021 device lineup won't be slouches either. There will be new iPad Pros that will use a new display technology but that might not be its only claim to fame.

Microsoft seems to be taking a more modest strategy if these leaked photos and information about its upcoming Surface computers are anything to go by.

The company's prosumer tablet seems to undergo big changes every iteration, even when those changes aren't exactly visible to the naked eye.

That might be a short-lived change, however, as there are now reports that Apple will again switch display technologies before 2021 is over.

Desktop PC sales drop again as tablets, Chromebooks fly

Desktop PC sales drop again as tablets, Chromebooks fly

2020 will definitely be remembered for the drastic, sometimes very negative, changes that happened due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It has affected all quarters and industries around the world, though not all in the same way. The PC market, for example, has found a bit of reprieve after years of slumping sales and profits.
