We’ve spent some time recently looking at the Nexus 7, Nexus 9, iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3. As we’ve been putting these tablets side-by-side to help you determine which is best for your computing needs, it is time we pit the 8-inch iPad Mini 3 against Google’s 9-inch Nexus 9.
Welcome to the Apple iPad Mini 3 vs Google Nexus 9 shootout.Overview
The overall approach to these two tablets is perhaps similar in that they attempt to offer an excellent overall user experience, and package it up in a fairly mobile device. Neither the iPad Mini 3, nor the Nexus 9 rock the best of specs available, but they are still well equipped and ready [...]

Every flagship needs a bigger brother or at least that’s how it seems smartphone manufacturers are thinking. Apple have the iPhone 6 Plus, Sony have the Xperia Z Ultra, HTC have the One M9 Plus and even Huawei are getting in on the act with the P8 Max.

It was not all that long ago that Microsoft made its core set of Office apps available for your Android tablet, and even more recent that Outlook became available too. However, enterprise users were certain to notice that the apps lacked a few security measures, sadly, this meant that users could enjoy Office at home, but not at work on their tablet.

Starting now, Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint for Android tablets will include several levels of security features for the business world. [...]
There is a certain amount of mobility lost in attempting to carry around many of today’s best tablets. Whether out of the Android or iOS camp, a 10-inch or larger mobile device is just not very, well, mobile. To overcome this, smaller tablets have been produced, and it is these tablets that have our attention today, once again pitting Apple against Google as we compare their borderline pocket-sized tablets.
Here, is your Apple iPad Mini 3 vs the Google Nexus 7 (2013) comprehensive shootout.Size
First, the pocket test. While you might consider me to be a big guy, with big pants, I find that both the iPad Mini 3 and the Nexus 7 fit comfortably in [...]
Can you think of anything worse than bricking your phone when flashing a new ROM? Well, how about your Android device turning into a fancy paperweight when the official OTA update is installing? That’s right, a good bunch of Nexus 7 owners, both 2012 and 2013, are reporting that Android 5.0+ Lollipop is bricking their tablets.
Making matters even worse, users so far are feeling that Google and ASUS both are trying to wash their hands of the problem, leaving users in the lurch. Even users with warranty are feeling the pinch. Hopefully this is just a growing pain or misunderstanding, but these users are pretty vocal, just check out the hashtag #Nexus7bricked for [...]
Which would you rather do, play Candy Crush on your iPad or Mario Kart 8 on your 3DS? If you said Candy Crush, you aren’t alone. Gaming apps on iOS and Android are increasing in popularity as sales for handheld gaming systems have been suffering a steady decline. In the 4th Quarter of 2014 handhelds may have seen a deathblow. This could mean that tablets are the new handheld game systems, at least in the minds of mobile device owners.
You would expect that more people would be interested in buying handheld gaming systems September through December. That is when holiday sales often boost numbers and help gaming companies beat sales records. When it comes to gaming [...]
