As well as launching the Redmi Note 3 smartphone today, Xiaomi also unveiled a brand new tablet, the Mi Pad 2. The slate lands as a very attractive 8-inch device with potent specs and a price tag that will guarantee that Xiaomi will have a success on its hands in China and Asia.
Nvidia has launched its new Shield Tablet K1 today, a sequel to last year's original K1 gaming oriented slate that delivered plenty of power and fast software updates. One thing that instantly grabs the eye this year is the affordability, with the new Shield Tablet K1 will cost just $199.
Verizon has today unveiled its Ellipsis 10 tablet, a slate that had been first leaked last month and comes with one particular standout feature. The 10.1-inch Ellipsis comes with a frankly massive 9100mAh, which is the largest juicer on any 4G LTE slate that Big Red sells, from any company.
It is hard to see where Samsung's huge 18.4-inch Galaxy View tablet is going to fit into the market. It is not a true PC or laptop competitor because Android lacks the overall functionality of a full PC OS like Windows. It may also be a tough sell as a tablet, simply too large to carry around while we guess some games and apps won?t refit to the size. We will know soon enough when we get our hands on the View, it has rolled out in the United States today.
Did you buy a HTC Nexus 9? Probably not, but then not many did. That is actually a shame as it was one of the very best tablets ever made... it just worked on all levels.

Samsung introduced the Galaxy View yesterday, a giant tablet with an 18.4-inch screen, but while the company detailed the specs it did not say when the View will arrive or indeed how much it would cost. It wouldn't be much of a story if details on those two things were not now trickling in, so thankfully that is exactly what is happening.
Samsung has officially announced its massive Galaxy View tablet today, arguably the biggest bona fide slate on the market. Perhaps highlighting the current decline in the tablet market, Samsung did not hold a major event for the product, letting out the news quietly.
Samsung has already announced the Galaxy View, the company's answer to the "pro" tablet trend that is also occupied by Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 and Apple's iPad Pro. Unlike those units through, the Galaxy View will sport a massive 18.4-inch screen, which will make it a true laptop/PC alternative in terms of size at least.
The LG G Pad 10.1 has been launched in South Korea today, a few weeks after it was unveiled prior to the IFA trade show in Berlin. The flagship slate will not be staying in LG's homeland exclusively for long though as its launch in the United States and other regions should happen at the end of this month.
Retail giant Amazon is apparently going to update its tablet lineup with a 10-inch model, which will be the company's largest slate so far.
