Google Kids Space secures tablets for young users

Google Kids Space secures tablets for young users

Navigating tablets for kids is a confusing enterprise at the moment. Hardware companies wanted parents to believe that their kids would use a "child tablet" with bumpers and a low-resolution display - they've been selling this goofy idea for years. But kids know the difference between a piece of "baby" tech and your thousand-dollar piece of highest-end smart device. That's why Google's releasing "Google Kids Space."

Lenovo Tab P11 Pro gives iPad Pro an affordable rival

Lenovo Tab P11 Pro gives iPad Pro an affordable rival

There's a new tablet in town to take on Apple's iPad Pro and Samsung's Galaxy Tab S7+, and the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro combines some of the best features from both. Fronted with an 11.5-inch 2K OLED screen, with HDR10 and Dolby Vision support, it's just 7.7 mm deep at its thickest point and runs Android, and will start at under $500.

10.8-inch iPad leaked with iPad Pro features

10.8-inch iPad leaked with iPad Pro features

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ were clearly attempts at grabbing back a huge chunk of the tablet market pie but it won't be long before Apple tries to bite back. Cupertino is expected to announce a few new slates, perhaps across its entire iPad line, but details about the upcoming tablets aren't as solid as those for the iPhone 12. In fact, some seem to be conflicting with each other at this point, like these details about a cheaper iPad with expensive features.

iPad Air 4 might break tradition in many surprising ways

iPad Air 4 might break tradition in many surprising ways

The iPad Air has always had a special but confusing place in Apple's tablet portfolio. Initially touted as a successor to the mainline iPad 4, the iPad Air became its own thing before being discontinued in favor of the first iPad Pro. It resurfaced last year with a new lease in life but still with an uncertain position in the grand scheme of things. Now Apple's thinnest and lightest iPad might once again spark the public's interest but once again blur the lines between Apple's iPad lines.

iPadOS 14 Siri will finally let you use apps running behind it

iPadOS 14 Siri will finally let you use apps running behind it

iPadOS 14 brings a lot of big changes to Apple's biggest mobile device but it also has one change that ironically takes a small form. In the next version of iPadOS, actually also in iOS 14, Siri will no longer take up all of your screen when you use it. Unfortunately, previous beta builds made that advantage pointless since you can't use the rest of the screen anyway but it seems that Apple has finally fixed that in iPadOS 14 Beta 5.

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Tab S7 hit by green tint bug

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Tab S7 hit by green tint bug

Samsung's mobile devices have always been praised for their displays, thanks to the company's prized Super AMOLED panels. This year, however, Samsung may have lost that prestige, at least for some owners of its high-end Galaxy S20 phones that have started to exhibit random green tinting on their screens. Unfortunately, that case is far from solved and has only become even more mysterious now that even the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and both Galaxy Tab S7 models have reportedly exhibited the same green sickness.

These Surface Duo photos explain a lot

These Surface Duo photos explain a lot

It pays to be obsessed when you're designing a new device, something Microsoft clearly took to heart when it came up with the Surface Duo. The folding Android sorta-phone, sorta-tablet may not be the first modern clamshell on the market - indeed, Samsung is readying the second generation of its foldable, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 - but an early glimpse inside helps highlight why Microsoft's is special.

These Samsung phones get 3 years of updates, like an iPhone

These Samsung phones get 3 years of updates, like an iPhone

Samsung just attempted to change the game - or at least allow the cards stack a bit more in their favor - when it comes to software updates. A set of smartphones they create will now get a guaranteed three years of software updates. That's new - or at least new to most Android-based smartphones on the market today. For years, this has been one of the most major sticking points in hardcore Apple fans' reasoning for continuing to purchase an iPhone: the value that comes from more than 2 years of software updates from the manufacturer of the phone.

Samsung promises three Android OS updates for more devices

Samsung promises three Android OS updates for more devices

We've lost count of how many times hell has frozen over in the past years but it seems the infernal flames will once again be put out thanks to Samsung's announcement. Once notorious for being the worst at Android updates, it has now stepped up to almost rival Google itself, at least in theory. It is promising three major Android OS updates not just for its flagship devices this year but also for last year's models and even some mid-range Galaxy A series phones.

Watch Microsoft justify Surface Duo

Watch Microsoft justify Surface Duo

It's fair to say that Microsoft's newest hardware is proving divisive, with Surface Duo splitting opinion between those who think it's potentially the future of computing, and critics who say it's just too expensive. The dual-touchscreen clamshell will cost a heady $1,400 when it goes on sale in September, and now Microsoft has released its thirty minute briefing video on just why it thinks that's worth it.

Surface Duo feels like a stopgap

Surface Duo feels like a stopgap

There's no denying that Microsoft's new Surface Duo has the wow-factor. A waif-like clamshell of soft-touch metal, that smoothly hinges open to reveal not one but two touchscreens - complete with Surface Pen support - it's hard not to look at it and think of a sci-fi movie prop. Yet Microsoft aims to put its futuristic gizmo on sale next month.

Microsoft Surface Duo images show potential launch packages and price

In the images leaked today, the Microsoft Surface Duo was shown from several angles along with likely accessories and/or in-box peripherals. The Microsoft Surface Duo device is Microsoft's next big product running Android. It folds up like a notebook, but where a keyboard and touchpad would normally be, this machine has a second display.
