iPad Pro to combine iOS and Mac OS X
By Luke Jones on Tuesday October 07, 2014

A day ago I wrote that news surrounding the oft rumoured iPad Pro was pretty thin on the ground, but ironically today a batch of info arrived courtesy of Digitimes. According to the report, Apple is working on not just one, but two iPad Pro devices and one of them will run both iOS and Mac OS X.

By Luke Jones on Monday October 06, 2014

It is almost certain that Apple will roll out a new iPad during the month, but details around Cupertino's new slate/s have been thin on the ground. Until now that is, as a major leak has laid bare some of the finer details of the iPad Air 2 and a new iPad Mini, although the much rumoured iPad Pro is still proving elusive.

Google is thought to be holding a launch event in a few weeks' time. The company will roll out Android L officially and will also debut some new Nexus devices. We have plenty recently about the Motorola built Nexus 6, but the Nexus 9 tablet has gone a little quiet, especially compared to the summer when it seemed the product was imminent.

By Luke Jones on Saturday October 04, 2014

Not everyone will be familiar with TESCO, a UK based retailer that started as a supermarket chain. However, the company is the second biggest retailer in the world behind Walmart and has branched out into consumer electronics. Last year the company's budget Hudl tablet caused a stir in the UK and Europe because of its decent quality and because it was very affordable.

Apple to launch new iPads on October 16th
By Luke Jones on Friday October 03, 2014

Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus media event was the biggest launch of the year, and it even had a little watch too. The roll out of the smartphones has gone well (ahem, bendgate aside) as the handsets have romped to massive sales. However, the fact that these devices and the launch would be a success was a given, as close to a certainty as you can get in this industry. However, Cupertino faces a shakier launch when it rolls out the new iPads.

Huawei launched new Honor Tablet that makes calls
By Luke Jones on Thursday October 02, 2014

One of the oddest niches is the one where tablets are given phone making capabilities. These are not phablets as they are just true slates that happen to have call functionality baked in. I can't imagine who buys these devices, but more and more companies seem to be exploring the idea and the latest is Chinese giant Huawei with its new Honor Tablet.

Apple to offer a gold colored iPad
By Luke Jones on Wednesday October 01, 2014

I suppose we can look back on the Apple iPhone 5s and see it as an innovative device. It arrived with a 64-bit processer, something Android is still yet to do consistently and it also featured a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, tech that rivals have not quite matched in terms of quality. Oh yes, the iPhone 6 also came in a gold hue, a color that has been copied by just about every major rival since. It is a small innovation, but hey, Apple started the gold trend people.

HP to launch Slate 17 tablet
By Luke Jones on Monday September 29, 2014

Over the last 15 years, no company has sold more PCs than HP and the brand is still considered among the biggest computer manufacturers in the world. Like many PC vendors, HP missed the boat with mobile, but with its coverage, market cachet, funds, and technological nous, HP should be a force in smartphone and tablets. The simple truth is though that it isn't doing well in mobile and the reason is products like the new HP Slate 17.

The new iPads will land October 21st
By Luke Jones on Tuesday September 23, 2014

The last couple of weeks have been dominated by Apple and the iPhone 6, with even devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 taking a back seat. If you thought the Cupertino hype machine would die down now and let others take the spotlight you should think again. Apple of course has another all-conquering product in its arsenal and a new one is due to land in October, so let it all start again.

Amazon's new tablet line up detailed in full
By Luke Jones on Thursday September 18, 2014

Amazon has taken a thrashing in the smartphone market with its Fire Phone flagship flopping to be one of the tech disasters of recent years. However, the retail giant does have a history of making moderately successful hardware with its Kindle tablets, while the company's Kindle e-readers have proven the market leaders in that niche.
