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.

Galaxy Tab S6 Lite launch date and price accidentally revealed by Amazon

Galaxy Tab S6 Lite launch date and price accidentally revealed by Amazon

When it comes to less premium devices, Samsung doesn't often make a lot of noise when they launch in select markets. Often we have to keep our eyes peeled for press releases, presuming there is even one, or product pages that suddenly pop up out of the blue. Sometimes, however, retailers are also "generous" enough to give us an accidental sneak peek at what's to come. Case in point is Amazon Germany pushing the publish button for the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, revealing when we can expect it to launch and for how much.

2020 iPad Pro teardown and durability test look very familiar

2020 iPad Pro teardown and durability test look very familiar

Despite all odds and talk about delayed or insufficient supplies, Apple launched what may be its biggest change to the iPad Pro line yet. Actually, the biggest change may not be from the iPad Pro itself but from its keyboard accessory. Yes, the 2020 iPad Pro, specifically the larger 12.9-inch model, has a new LiDAR for augmented reality purposes. But aside from the few hardware upgrades, it seems that this year's iPad Pros are nearly identical to 2018's iPad Pros, and not in the good ways.

The iPad Pro isn’t a computer still

The iPad Pro isn’t a computer still

At last, track pad for the iPad. For many of us, it would seem like the final step to having a lightweight and ultra-convenient tablet replace a bulky laptop. After all, the iPad Pro has always boasted laptop-beating specs, especially at the price. And few screens match the color-accuracy and gorgeous fluidity of its screen. Having one of the best smart pens in the business sure helps too.

Galaxy Tab S6 Lite specs and images leaked completely

Galaxy Tab S6 Lite specs and images leaked completely

Samsung doesn't make a big fuss about its tablets outside of the Galaxy Tab S family but there are times when even those don't get enough attention. The Galaxy Tab S5e, for example, wasn't advertised as much despite the "S" in its name. The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite might have the same fate as it is expected to be a mid-range offering. Fortunately, the leaks do more than enough to sate our curiosity until the somewhat silent press release comes out.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.4 (2020) is unexpectedly cheap for an LTE tablet

Samsung has added a low-cost Android tablet to its line-up, and the biggest surprise with the Galaxy Tab A 8.4 (2020) is that it comes with baked-in LTE. The new slate creeps in at under $300, and while it might not compete directly with a new iPad Pro, it's a whole lot cheaper than Apple's most affordable cellular models.

ARKit 3.5 released to use new iPad Pro’s LiDAR

iOS 13.4, along with iPadOS 13.4, isn't the only big software release that Apple rolled out today. As part of its gift to iPad Pro users, it has announced the availability of ARKit version 3.5. Its biggest new feature is support for LiDARs which, of course, requires the new 2020 iPad Pro hardware. It may, however, also prefigure what may be coming to this year's iPhones as well.

Surface Go 2 specs are going to disappoint hopeful fans

Surface Go 2 specs are going to disappoint hopeful fans

Microsoft axed the Surface Mini, which turned out to be a real device, even before it saw the light of day. Four years later, it came out with a larger and very different Surface Go that was meant to be the company's on-the-go Windows solution and it was well-received, being compared with Apple's iPad Pro. It has taken Microsoft two years to come out with a successor but while the wait might finally be over, those hoping for a more decent upgrade will be sorely disappointed, at least based on these initial leaks.

iPhone and iPad Pro purchases limited due to constrained supplies

iPhone and iPad Pro purchases limited due to constrained supplies

Against all odds, Apple launched two new iPad Pros this week, though the expected iPhone SE 2 or iPhone 8 and its larger sibling remain absent. That may give a feeling that everything is OK in Apple land, at least until people try to buy these and other Apple products from the company's online store. For now, buyers are being limited in the number of iPhones and iPads they can buy under a single name, one of the first visible signs of the COVID-19 coronavirus' effects in the industry.

Galaxy Tab S7 or Tab S20 reportedly already in the works

The COVID-19 pandemic has produced uncertainty regarding product launch schedules but that doesn't mean manufacturers are going to stop to a grinding halt. Things are still going as planned, even if delayed or in smaller steps, and it seems that Samsung is already starting the engines for its next high-end tablet, which may be called either the Galaxy Tab S7 or the Galaxy Tab S20. That despite the rumored Galaxy Tab S6 Lite still nowhere to be seen.

iPad trackpad and mouse support isn’t just for the new iPad Pro

Apple's trackpad support isn't just limited to the new 2020 iPad Pro and its Magic Keyboard cover. Though the new tablet and accessory were announced today with the addition of trackpad functionality, they'll actually be features of iPadOS 13.4, Apple has confirmed. That's good news for existing iPad owners - and they won't have to wait until iOS 14.
