I’d like to welcome you to the first of our new TabTimes monthly, an overview of the best new tablets and tablet related technology news and reviews of the last month in the industry. Subscribers to our TabTimes Monthly newsletter will be familiar with what they see here, but we’ve got one more trick up our sleeve, welcome to our first international giveaway.
Enjoy some of our favorite news from August of 2015, and when you get through to the end, sign up for your chance to win a brand new Google Nexus 9.
Microsoft Windows 10
Microsoft launched their latest operating system in the last days of July, with most users seeing the update into August. We spent some time with Windows 10, I’m not ashamed to say that we like it, it could possibly be the best OS Microsoft has ever produced. No point having me talk about it here, check out our coverage of Windows 10 and decide for yourself:
Android 6.0 Marshmallow
Google decided to not make us all wait for the fall to learn the name of the next release of Android, officially announcing what “M” stands for. That is, Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
There is little else to say on the matter here, check out our coverage for more details.
What’s the best …?
August was a big month for recommendations on what tablet you might consider buying. It all started before August, but the trend continued. Now we just need to wait to see what IFA and other September tablet announcements are in store, we might have to update a few of these lists already.
ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 review
Our team members at Android Authority spent some time with the new ASUS ZenPad S 8.0, giving us a full review of the Android tablet. This is the tablet that ASUS introduced along with a 5 speaker DTS audio equipped case.
Zettaly Avy review
I’ll forgive you if you do not know what the Zettaly Avy is, but I do urge you to check it out. The recently successful Kickstarter funded Zettaly started selling the Avy back in July and we spent the month with it to give you a fair review. This is a 7-inch tablet embedded into a two-speaker Bluetooth music box.
The list of functions that Avy can perform with ease is impressive, I used it as a set-top box to watch some movies on the big screen last night, and it is playing music and acting as a digital photo frame as I type this. Point is, don’t let your first reaction sway you, the Zettaly Avy is a great product, one we use daily.
Giveaway: Google Nexus 9
I hope you are as excited about this as we are, our first giveaway! What better way to kick things off than to give away one of our favorite tablets, the Google Nexus 9, built by HTC.
