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).

The latest product to prove that is probably the Toshiba TT301, a slate that has a huge 24-inch screen.

Xiaomi has made its presence felt this year by putting a considerable thorn into the side of Samsung by taking a chunk of its Android sales in Asia. The Chinese company is going to go after Samsung again in 2015 and the first product to do that will be a new tablet.

By Luke Jones on Thursday November 20, 2014

By Luke Jones on Tuesday November 18, 2014

Just a few days ago Nokia said it would no longer make smartphones in an era of the company post Microsoft buyout of the company's devices division.
