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, [...]
Elop, the final speaker at a keynote talk in MWC today, opened by questioning how long Android will remain as an open-source platform, before moving onto push Windows Phone as the future third disruptive smartphone OS, and one which he believes will attract third-party developers.
Shortly after revealing Nokia’s latest smartphones, and claiming that the number of Windows Phone apps grew 3x last year to reach 65,000, Elop stressed that the future of mobile applications will shift to be locally-based offerings, with the increasing ability to share apps directly from one device to another.
“We believe there will be a shift in people moving to discover [...]
"There are challenges in helping more people gain access," Dunn told the assembled MWC crowd in Barclona. "There is usually a significant upcharge for a device that connects to the mobile internet, with tablets being a good example."
Dunn cited pricing in the United States, where he said the difference between a Wi-Fi only tablet and one with 3G averaged out to be $130, an amount he said was "just too expensive" for most people.
Dunn went on to say that he thought network operators and tablet manufacturers should work together to figure out the problem, and that until they do, tablets would remain inaccessible for large numbers [...]
