Samsung Loses Tablet Market Lead in India
By Luke Jones on Monday February 23, 2015

Samsung has lost considerable market share in the smartphone world over the last year, something that has been well documented. The company's slide is only really put into perspective when you see individual countries in isolation and Sammy has lost huge ground in key markets such as China, South Korea, and Japan. However, it seems the company's troubles in these important huge regions are not specific to smartphones.

HTC Working on Tablet Based off Nexus 9
By Luke Jones on Monday February 09, 2015

HTC rolled out its first full tablet last year, the problem is, the Nexus 9 is more associated with Google and Android than it is the Taiwanese company. That's because HTC produces the table to fly Google's Nexus banner. However, the smartphone maker is going to enter the slate market on its own two feet in 2015 using the Nexus 9 as a blueprint, according to reports.

Apple to Defy Steve Jobs with Stylus Packing iPad Pro
By Luke Jones on Monday January 19, 2015

Former Apple Supremo Steve Jobs left a huge impact on the company and the tech world. So much so that when Apple goes against one of his ethos, the company is lambasted as if it should hang on every word Jobs said. A great example of this is the fact that Jobs was not particularly enamoured with the idea of a large screen stylus packing device, something Apple are now going to make this year.

By Luke Jones on Thursday January 15, 2015

By Luke Jones on Friday January 02, 2015

HP has quietly launched a new tablet on its website, opting not to reveal the device at next week's CES trade show in Las Vegas. That's because the HP Pro Tablet 408 G1 is not a particularly exciting slate and the PC giant is gearing it towards enterprise users and not general consumers. That's not to say you can't buy it, and it's arguably better than the company?s HP Stream 8.

Onda iPad Air Copy comes with Android 4.4 and Windows 8.1
By Luke Jones on Wednesday December 31, 2014

Apple's iPad Air 2 is the best tablet on the market, and no I am not an Apple die-hard in the slightest (as my Android smartphone will attest). However, the Air 2 sets the standard in terms of getting the most things right, but even this amazing slate is lacking something. It, and indeed a multitude of Android tablets cannot offer the kind of productivity offered by Windows 8.1 tablets that rock a full PC OS.
