  It seems as though everyone is out to paint a target on Microsoft’s back when it comes to challenging the likes of the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book.

The flagship Galaxy Book 12 comes with a Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2160x1440. The display also supports 10-bit HDR, which should help videos and other digital content spring to life.

It shouldn't be too shocking to learn that there are many people anxious to get their mitts on Nintendo's Switch console, and thanks to one retailer that didn't check its calendar carefully, many people are now envious of one lucky customer who managed to get their unit a full two weeks early. That lucky user is Hiphoptherobot, who happens to frequent popular gaming site NeoGAF and decided to show off his unexpected wares. In a three-minute video posted to Vidme, Hiphoptherobot shows us what we can expect to see after powering on the Switch tablet for the first time. While there's not a lot to... Read more...
Dell's XPS 13 and 15 line of notebooks have done well for the company, sparked by a reinvention of the product line back in 2015. Since then, its design signature has reached iconic status for Round Rock, with the ultra-thin bezel of its Infinity Edge display and hatched carbon fiber composite palm rest and keyboard area earning the series many awards, including our Editor's Choice on multiple occasions. And as you might expect, Dell has continued to evolve its well-received XPS product offerings, not only as new notebook platform architectures roll out, but the company is also now looking...

Lenovo will likely have a major presence at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month as it introduces several new mobile devices. One of them will be the Tab3 8 Plus (TB-8703), an 8-inch tablet that is not yet official but might as well be thanks to the latest leak. An Italian-language website got its virtual mitts on a handful of press renders and what looks to be a plausible spec sheet.Based on the leaked photos, the Tab3 8 Plus will ship in at least two color options, silver and blue. Buyers will be able to choose between a Wi-Fi only model (TB-8703F) or one that has both Wi-Fi and... Read more...
Nokia is officially back in the branded smartphone business with the launch of its Nokia 6, a mid-range Android handset that reports say sold out in under a minute in China, but that is not the only big news attached to the company. It would appear that Nokia is also getting ready to release a humongous tablet, one that will sport an 18.4-inch display with a 2560x1440 display resolution. Specifications for the massive tablet showed up on GFXBench. The gargantuan device could also be an upcoming all-in-one (AIO) system, though being an Android device powered by an ARM-based processor, it is more... Read more...
If you're in a situation where your phone has data, but your tablet doesn't, and Wi-Fi isn't an immediate option, things can get frustrating pretty quickly. Consider checking into a hotel, for example, which only allows one or two devices to connect to the Wi-Fi - that's a major roadblock for those with their families, or those with multiple devices. While your smartphone is charging, you could be kicking back using the tablet, for example. That assumes that the hotel's Internet service allows you access without dinging you again for another device. Situations like those or similar will be less... Read more...
Lenovo recently released one of the most interesting tablet hybrids in recent memory, just in time for the holidays. The Yoga Book has a digital keyboard that doubles as a sketch pad that even accommodates plain old paper, giving users several ways to draw images or jot notes. In fact, the tablet aspect of the machine is one of the most creative (and fun) concepts we’ve seen this year. The Yoga Book differs from traditional tablet first hybrid devices in several ways, but the most noticeable of these is the permanently attached keyboard, which is a departure from traditional 10-inch tablet...

If you're in the market for a new tablet that also doubles as an e-reader, you may want to hold off for just a little bit. Rumors suggest Barnes & Noble will be releasing a new iteration of its NOOK Tablet in the very near future to battle in the low-end sector of the tablet market traditionally dominated by the Amazon Kindle Fire. According to the leaked specs, it seems certain that this NOOK, called Tablet 7, will not be that expensive. It is likely being used to help Barnes & Noble better compete against the likes of Amazon, which itself offers a meager-spec'd Fire tablet for a... Read more...
Microsoft Surface tablets have come under fire by one of the most successful head coaches in the history of the National Football League and by extension one of the most successful NFL teams, so the exposure is significant. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is done with using tablets on the sidelines. As outside observers of a sport, it's sometimes easy to dismiss the complexities surrounding the games we watch. While in all team sports, coordination between team staff is important, it's downright imperative in the game of Football and for the NFL. Depth charts, team formation photos,... Read more...
Ever since smartphones became a de facto communication medium in our lives, studies have been conducted to find out whether or not extended use of the devices is healthy. From a general standpoint, it's easy to understand how these phones can clutter our lives and leave folks occasionally ignoring everyone around them, but conversely, there's obviously myriad ways in which these devices can enhance our lives. In a recent study, there's proof of the pros and cons, and we're warned to consider the risks and help negate them. This particular study took a look at how families interacted with each other...

For the first time, Amazon's Alexa voice service is headed to a tablet. It's one of the standout features of Amazon's new Fire HD 8, a budget slate built from the ground up to offer users all-day battery life, faster performance, and double the onboard storage of previous versions Fire HD tablets. The kicker here is its $90 price tag. While not without its competitors, it's fair to say that Amazon dominates the low-cost tablet market with its highly popular Fire HD line. The new Fire HD 8 won't do anything to compromise Amazon's position in the tablet market. Just the opposite, its poised to bolster... Read more...
A new standard is set to allow native HDMI output for devices with USB Type-C connectors. It could prove to be a great feature as more smartphones, notebooks, 2-in-1s, and tablet devices adopt the next generation USB interface and ultimately enable another option for these devices to act as media streamers or for big screen gaming on the go. Allowing HDMI output from USB-C could also give manufacturers the ability to eliminate HDMI connectors from their devices, to further slim them down or streamline their design. The HDMI licensing group is ready to set a standard on a specification that will... Read more...

Larger, detachable tablets are the reason. Consumers want devices that are multi-functional.
