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.
This has changed, Microsoft has released an update to their Office apps for Android that include most, if not all of the required authentication techniques for business use.
Starting now, Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint for Android tablets will include several levels of security features for the business world. [...]
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 [...]
It wasn’t too long ago that our own Taylor Martin reviewed the sleek Dell Venue 8 7000 tablet, and it seems as though the company has already released it’s followup device. Dubbed the Dell Venue 10 7000, this new Android-powered tablet features similar specifications and build to the Venue 8 7000, but with a few interesting additions.
For starters, the Venue 10 7000 is mostly the same when it comes to specifications. Like it’s younger sibling, the new device is powered by an Intel Atom Z3580 processor, 2GB of RAM and also has an 8MP rear-facing camera complete with Dell’s RealSense 3D technology. It has a big 10.5-inch display with a resolution [...]

One of the most popular note taking (and so much more) apps for Android, Evernote, recently was updated to version 7.0 for Android phones. A few weeks have passed and Evernote is now rolling out the same version update to Android tablets.
The list of improvements includes Material Design visual changes from the latest Android 5 Lollipop, a new tablet quick notes option that is available on every screen within the app, improved tablet note editor and note view, the typical smattering of bug fixes and more.
While the update still offers a familiar experience across devices, Evernote took advantage of the larger screens of tablets by adding in a new split toolbar, [...]
Back in September Amazon finally gave Android users a way to access Amazon Prime Video content, after long holding out and keeping the functionality exclusive to Kindle Fire tablets, the Fire Phone, and various media streamers and smart TVs. Of course, they sure didn’t make things easy.
To play content, you needed to have the Amazon app, which would let you select video content. However, you also needed the Prime Instant Video app to actually play it back, which was available only through the Amazon AppStore. What’s worse than requiring you to install three different Amazon apps in order to simply watch your Prime Instant Video content? Amazon left tablets out of the [...]

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 [...]
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 [...]
