Today, Archos has announced three new tablets, the 101 Magnus, 101 Magnus + and 94 Magnus, which are all equipped with plenty of internal memory for the media heavy consumer. In fact, the 94 Magnus comes with a gargantuan 256GB of internal storage, with room for an extra 128GB microSD card, if you really need it.
Archos claims to have been able to squeeze so much memory into a tablet due to its “Fusion Storage” technology, which essentially combines microSD card storage and internal memory into a single memory partition. The benefit is that you can use all of the storage for apps, games and other large files.
The Archos 101 Magnus is the cheapest of the line-up, [...]
Flagship season is upon us, but noticeable in its absence is the latest flagship smartphone from Sony, which has now been pushed back to accommodate Sony’s move away from their bi-annual release cycle. Nevertheless, Sony hasn’t come to MWC 2015 without its own bag of goodies, with the waterproof Xperia M4 Aqua, as well as the highly-anticipated latest addition to their high-end tablet lineup. At MWC 2015, we got to spend some time with the device, and here is our first look at the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet!
Ever since the launch of the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, we were wondering what Sony would do with regards to a tablet in the 10-inch form factor, [...]
We’re here at MWC 2015 where Lenovo just unveiled two new budget-friendly Android tablets. We scored some hands-on time with the bigger of the two, dubbed the Lenovo Tab 2 A10. This 10.1-inch tablet is one of the first tablets to feature Dolby ATMOS 3D Cinema audio enhancements, which aims to make your audio experience much clearer. For the price, this tablet has great specifications and a solid build quality. So, is it worth the money? Let’s find out in our hands-on and first impressions of the Lenovo Tab 2 A10!Design
The A10 has a very minimal design no matter which way you look at it. The majority of the tablet is made of a soft-touch plastic, [...]
It’s not really a surprise, following the leak from last week, but Sony just introduced the latest version of the sexy 10.1-inch Xperia Tablet at MWC 2015.
We were hoping for a new version of the Xperia Z flagship smartphone from Sony, but what we got instead might make up for that: the new Xperia Z4 Tablet is thinner, lighter, has a higher resolution screen, and packs more power.
In terms of design, the Xperia Z4 Tablet looks a lot like its smaller sibling, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, released last year at IFA. The same design language featuring rounded edges is used to great success on the 10.1 model, and amazingly Sony managed to make the Z4 Tablet even [...]
It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a full-sized tablet from Sony, but perhaps the company has plans to unveil a new one sometime soon. In a new leak from the official Xperia Lounge application, Sony outed their new Xperia Z4 Tablet, but only for a brief moment. We don’t know much about the tablet from the screenshots taken of the page, but we do know it will come with a 2K screen, and will feature “the latest ultra fast processor” and “industry leading battery performance”. The screenshot also reveals that the tablet will be launched on March 3rd, which suggests that it will be unveiled at MWC 2015.
When it comes to specifics, [...]

RealD chief financial officer (CFO) Andrew Skarupa raised that very possibility when speaking at the Piper Jaffray investor conference in New York recently.
“We fundamentally believe that what we really take this market to get going in terms of content and active users with 3D will be a glasses-free based product,” said Skarupa. His comments were reported by Consumer Electronics Daily (requires subscription).
“We have something that is very compelling and novel. We see it first in tablets and smartphones and everything migrating to the migrating to a larger screen. We’re excited about it and we feel optimistic.”

Rumors towards the end of last year had suggested that Nokia was intending to launch a 10.1-inch Windows RT tablet at the MWC in Barcelona, but that belief is now being brought into question.
Market research firm Strategy Analytics believes that the Finnish handset maker will not have a tablet at the show, a sign possibly that the widely-reported model is still not yet ready for production.
""Nokia will not unveil a tablet with a Microsoft operating system at this year's Mobile World Congress. We believe Nokia's strategy will be 'smartphones first' for MWC this year," said the company on its website.
"And rightly so. Nokia will [...]
