Microsoft Surface 3 is now up for pre-order

A few years ago, Microsoft decided to take a more direct approach with computer hardware, launching a brand new tablet called the Microsoft Surface. A few iterations have passed, including the brand new Surface 3, which is now up for pre-sale in the Microsoft Store.

The new tablet already has a big brother on the market, the Surface Pro 3, which clocks in with a 12-inch display, while the ‘basic’ Surface rocks a 10.8-inch display.

Running down the specs list of the Surface 3, we see that 10.8-inch display with 1920×1280 resolution, 10 point multi-touch input and options for 64GB of storage with 2GB of RAM or 128GB storage with 4GB of [...]

Google unveils four new budget-friendly Chromebooks for under $250

Alongside the announcement of its Chrome OS-powered Chromebit, Google has announced four new Chromebooks aimed at folks who are on a budget. To start off the list, the Haier Chromebook 11 and the Hisense Chromebook are the cheapest of the four, available now for pre-order for just $149.

Since these Chrome devices are so inexpensive, both the Haier and Hisense laptops are made of a black plastic material that seem very resilient to scratches and bumps. Both laptops have 11.6-inch screens with 1366×768 resolution and 200 nits of brightness, though the Hisense is slightly heavier and bigger overall. In addition, Haier has also launched another Chromebook aimed at the [...]

Ares 11 is a 2-in-1 Android tablet for just $197, features quad-core Intel CPU and Lollipop

E Fun isn’t exactly a top-tier Android OEM, but their tablets are quickly becoming pretty commonplace at big box retailers (such as Walmart) and through various online shopping sites, offering up reasonably spec’d devices at pretty aggressive pricing. The OEM, best known for its Nextbook line, is now upping its game a little by introducing its first 2-in-1 Android tablet.

Convertible tablets that transform into laptops are nothing new in the Android world, with Asus being one of the best-known manufacturers of such hybrid devices. That said, most of these devices aren’t exactly ultra-affordable. The Nextbook Ares 11 aims to deliver a low-cost convertible experience [...]

Jide Ultra Remix Surface tablet could be yours for just $39

Do you remember back in January when we told you about a new tablet in the works from a few ex-Googlers, that looked like a Microsoft Surface, but ran a custom Android ROM meant for Windows-like productivity? Some of you said you ‘actually really like this,’ others bashed it, but you know what, the Jide Ultra Remix Surface tablet could be yours for as little as $39!

Here’s the deal, Jide has a Kickstarter campaign rolling for their Android 4.4 based ROM powered tablet. The campaign starts March 25th and has an entry pledge reward level of $39. No word on what exactly that reward will be, but every pledge is said to receive a new [...]

What is USB Type-C? How does it change the game?

Google and Apple have both launched new mobile computers recently, and although the machines are quite different, they have something in common: both include USB Type-C ports. So what exactly is USB Type-C? Let’s take a look.

You are probably very familiar with USB. If you have a PC, you have probably used a USB flash drive, or maybe you have connected a printer with USB. If you have an Android phone then you will be familiar with USB as the way to charge your phone, or as the way you transfer data to and from the phone. USB has been around for a long time. It first gained mainstream popularity when Microsoft included support for it in Windows 98, and Apple used [...]

Deal: Get $50 in Google Play credit with purchase of a Nexus 9, Nexus 6 or Android Wear device

If you live in the United States and you’re in the market for a new smartphone, tablet or wearable, the newly-announced Google Store may have a deal for you. From now until March 31st, if you purchase a Nexus 6, Nexus 9 or any Android Wear device, you’ll receive $50 in credit to be used on anything in the Google Play Store.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A and Tab A Plus announced in Russia

Earlier today Samsung held a press event in Russia, where the company announced its new Galaxy Tab A and Tab A Plus, both of which are mid-tier tablets with that familiar Samsung tablet feel.

The Galaxy Tab A series comes in two variants, one 8-inch and the other at 9.7-inches, both featuring a 4:3 aspect ratio and a display resolution of 1024×768 pixels. Both are also quite thin, with a depth of only 7.5mm.

Windows tablet for $48 – can the MOMO7W be worth it?

In the world of inexpensive tablets, Android powered devices have been leading the way. Unfortunately, the word ‘cheap’ sometimes refers not only to the price tag, but also to the overall build quality and user experience with low end hardware. A new Microsoft Windows tablet is hitting store, probably not near you, that clocks in at about $48, but is it worth looking at?

The inexpensive new tablet is the Ployer MOMO7W, a 7-inch Windows tablet with 1024×600 screen resolution, an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.

The rundown of specs here is a far cry from the rundown of specs for other new tablets out [...]

Chromebook Pixel (2015) arrives, USB-C ports in tow — starting at $999

Last month Google unofficially revealed a new Chromebook Pixel was on its way sometime soon, though at the time no specific details were given. As it turns out, today is the day, as the Chromebook Pixel (2015) has landed.

For those that were intrigued by the idea of a high-end Chrome OS experience but not so keen on Google’s $1300 asking price for the Pixel, you’ll be happy to know that the latest model is a fair amount cheaper at $999 for the Intel Core i5 model with 8GB RAM and 32GB storage. Although this is still much more expensive than typical Chromebooks, a $300 price reduction is a welcome change. If you want even more power under the hood, a $1300 variant [...]

Android Lollipop 5.1 factory images are now ready for download

Just a few hours ago, Android 5.1 became official, though it had been spotted running on Android One devices earlier this year. The new build includes three main features, multiple-SIM card support (a staple for many Asian devices), device protection, and HD voice calling along with bug fixes and the likes. While most of these features sound better suited to phones, a couple Nexus tablets are first up to the plate.

While there are no concrete details as to when the update will arrive OTA, Google has thankfully begun to post the factory images. Those who know what to do need only click on the link below, find their device, get their download on, and patch away. For those who [...]
