TESCO reveals the Hudl 2 tablet
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.

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.

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.

NVIDIA confirms the HTC built Nexus 9 for this quarter
By Luke Jones on Thursday September 11, 2014

Samsung copies other companies and gets sued a lot. It is almost an unwritten rule of mobile tech, but every so often a Samsung court case where the company is accused of patent infringement tends to throw up some juicy information. The latest brand trying to take Samsung to the cleaners is chip maker NVIDIA (the suit is also against Qualcomm) and during the case some information about the Nexus 9 tablet was released.

By Luke Jones on Wednesday September 03, 2014

All the buzz around ASUS at IFA this morning may have been because of the ZenWatch wearable, but the Taiwanese company had some other products to show off too. Such as the new MeMO Pad 7, a tablet that really blurs the lines between slate and smartphone, almost looking like a phablet handset as opposed to a full tablet.

HTC Nexus 8 will have Android L
By Luke Jones on Saturday August 23, 2014

We have known for some time that HTC is making a tablet, but it has been a long time coming as the so called Volantis seems to have been on the verge of launching for several months. If any further confirmation was needed that this slate is real and is imminent, then a new Wi-Fi certification for a HTC tablet should seal the deal.

Samsung/Nook launch Galaxy Tab 4
By Luke Jones on Wednesday August 20, 2014

We told you earlier in the week how the first product from the Nook/Samsung union would be the Galaxy Tab 4, and now that slate come e-reader has been launched. As you would expect, this is very much a Samsung Galaxy device, from the overall ethos to the nailed on design language, and that all makes me a little sad.

Sony Xperia Z2 is tablet of the year
By Luke Jones on Saturday August 16, 2014

It is hard to argue against the all-round goodness of the iPad Air or Mini with Retina Display, Apple's slate nailing just about everything and packing it in one of the best designs in the mobile space.

Samsung and Nook Tab 4 revealed
By Luke Jones on Saturday August 16, 2014

Samsung has added its considerable weight to the e-reader market and given one of its struggling giants a huge lift and a chance at rejuvenation. The Korean giant recently announced that it would team up with Nook from Barnes & Noble (B&R spun Nook off as a separate entity in June) for a series of new slates, the first of which is now being teased.
