Barnes & Noble is making an adjustment that will see the introduction of Google Play, and the more than 700,000 apps currently available in the biggest Android app store, available on its most recent tablets.
BlackBerry's CEO believes that despite continued growth in the segment, tablets will have no purpose as users will concentrate on smartphones for mobile computing and desktops to have a larger screen. What does he know that the rest of the world doesn't?
Samsung today announced that it's not quite done with its tablet portfolio. Though the company recently began selling the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and it's 8-inch display, it will soon add the 7-inch display of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 to its portfolio.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is the first Android tablet to meet Samsung's in-between niche for its S Pen feature. The Note 8.0, which is smaller than a full-sized tablet but bigger than a large phone, will make its U.S. debut later this week.
The Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 tablet is now available in the U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and Japan. Amazon previously focused its sales efforts in the U.S., but its popular tablet has expanded availability. Amazon also lowered the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 price in the U.S. to $269 for the 16GB Wi-Fi version. The 4G LTE-capable Kindle Fire HD 8.9 now starts at $399.
Smartphone screen sizes have reached ridiculous levels since the so-called "phablet" era began, but few sights are as bizarre as the idea of making phone calls on a tablet. That doesn't mean that making phone calls on an ASUS FonePad or Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 are as crazy as you think.
What's the best tablet with a smaller screen? With today's announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and the ASUS FonePad, the Apple iPad Mini, Google Nexus 7, and Amazon Kindle Fire HD have some fresh competition for the title of best portable tablet.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 has arrived to fill the gap between Samsung's smartphones and larger screen tablets. Packing a quad-core processor and S Pen features found in the other Galaxy Note devices, Samsung's latest tablet is out to compete with the iPad Mini.
ASUS already has a PadFone that can be a Android phone or a tablet when connected to a smartphone accessory, but the company today announced the Fonepad, an Android tablet that's capable of making phone calls without any add-ons.
An HP Android tablet? Yes, it's more than a rumor that makes sense; it's now officially happening with the release of the HP Slate 7. HP confirmed that its second foray into tablets will feature Android 4.1 software rather than its own webOS.
