Xperia Z4 Tablet: Slick And Slim, With Laptop Aspirations

There’s a new tablet in town. It’s the new Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet and yeah, it’s slimmer, lighter and more powerful than its predecessor, the Xperia Z2 Tablet.

iPad Air 2 Review: When Thin Actually Means Something

Gadgets get thinner every year. That’s a given. But the iPad Air 2 crosses a threshold where thin makes a difference.

At its initial announcement, Google neglected to detail the software fate of two of its ageing devices — the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 7 (2012). Luckily, Android Lollipop will also extend to include its more senior family members.


Padfone X Mini: Asus Is Taking Another Crack At The Transforming Smartphone And Tablet

Isn’t it fine to have a smartphone that fits in your pocket? Isn’t it dandy to have a tablet for two-handed tasks? Soon you’ll be able to buy both for just $US200 with this Intel-powered smartphone that transforms into a tablet.
