Apple 2020 lineup leak includes iPad Air with in-screen Touch ID, Gamepad

Apple has already launched quite a few new products in the past weeks despite the ongoing chaos that the COVID-19 pandemic has wrought on the world. That, however, is just the beginning, which is fitting considering we're barely halfway through 2020. Apple still has some new products planned for later that go beyond the expected iPhone 12 and MacBooks. It turns out, it might have quite a lot in store, including ones we may not have heard before.

2020 iPad Pro Review: Don’t call it a laptop replacement

2020 iPad Pro Review: Don’t call it a laptop replacement

The iPad is in many ways like the electric cars of the automotive world. Range anxiety is one of the biggest concerns for many EV buyers, which is why there are still so many gasoline engine cars on the road. Much the same, in laptops versus tablets, the biggest question is whether an iPad can do "enough" to replace a regular laptop. For would-be buyers of the 2020 iPad Pro, the most important question is likely whether it’ll tick all - or at least most - of the boxes to supplant a traditional laptop. While I can't make that buying decision for you, I’d like to lay out what’s new with the 2020 iPad Pro, why it's now the only "computer" I need with me on the road, and why the obsession with "replacement" may now miss the point.

Surface Book 3 leaks point to a powerhouse convertible

Against all odds, it seems that Microsoft will still try to push through with some of its new products. At least those that won't rely on a shiny new Windows 10X. Its Surface lineup is due a refresh, especially in some areas like Surface Dock and the Surface Book. That does seem to be the case if leaks are to be believed and it seems that Microsoft won't be pulling punches in turning the Surface Book 3 into its most powerful portable workstation yet.

Galaxy Tab S6 Lite goes live without much fanfare

Galaxy Tab S6 Lite goes live without much fanfare

It may be OnePlus' time under the spotlight today with the launch of the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro but that doesn't mean there are no other new products that came out at the same time. Given its mid-range status, however, it's not exactly surprising that Samsung didn't make a big splash about the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite's official reveal. And while the exact availability date is still unknown, the Indonesian product page at least confirms what to expect when it does.

Microsoft Surface Go 2 may have just been spotted at the FCC

Despite all the delays and cancellations happening around the world due to the COVID-19 situation, companies still try to push through with planned products and releases, as difficult as those may be.

Microsoft may also be preparing to announce products that may be coming soon and one of them, a suspected Surface Go 2, has made its way to the US FCC.

Galaxy Chromebook with 16GB of RAM may be in the works

Galaxy Chromebook with 16GB of RAM may be in the works

The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook is quite the looker with its Fiesta Red hue and it does have some muscle to show for with the 10th gen Intel Core i5. But with a $1,000 price tag, you'd expect it to give a bit more. Sadly, one aspect where the Chrome OS convertible falls short of expectation is RAM but that may not be for long. That is if it's really the case that the company is preparing a variant that offers 16GB of RAM instead of just half.

Samsung tablets will soon come in 12.4 and 11-inch sizes

Remember the Galaxy Note Pro and the Galaxy Tab Pro? Back in 2014, these 12.2-inch Android tablets were a laughing stock but they may have just been too ahead of their time. Today, Apple has released no less than four 12.9-inch iPad Pros to much success, hinting the time might be ripe for a large Android pro tablet yet again. Unsurprisingly, Samsung might be the first or even only one to jump on board again.

Chrome OS navigation gestures make Chromebooks feel like Android tablets

Chrome OS navigation gestures make Chromebooks feel like Android tablets

It's a bit more difficult to pin down what Chrome OS and Chromebooks are these days. Although they started simply as a glorified browser OS running on low-power cheap laptops, the product line has stood the test of time to now include high-end hardware, convertible form factors, and support for Android and Linux apps. Part of the confusion in defining Chrome OS can sometimes be gleaned in half-baked features. Today, however, Google closes one of the gaps by making Chrome OS' tablet mode really feel like you're using a tablet.

Galaxy Tab A 8.4 (2020) on T-Mobile gets a later shipping date

Thanks to the frightening prospect of being bored at home, the number of purchases of entertainment devices, from gaming consoles to tablets, have surged recently. This is definitely an opportune time for Amazon Apple whose Kindle readers, Fire tablets, and iPads have become synonymous with digital content consumption. Not one to be left out, Samsung is also pushing its own affordable Galaxy Tab A slate forward but it might come a little too late for T-Mobile customers.

Galaxy Tab S6 finally gets Android 10 and One UI 2.1

Galaxy Tab S6 finally gets Android 10 and One UI 2.1

When you buy a flagship device, you build up an expectation that device would be supported with timely updates. That's especially true if the device is barely a year old. Of course, some companies, like Apple, Google, and the late Essential, are better than others while some, like Samsung, are improving yet struggling to change old habits. The Galaxy Tab S6, for example, is not just Samsung's latest tablet, it is also one of the few remaining premium Android tablets in the market and it's only getting the latest Android update half a year after Android 10 was released.
