Google Assistant won’t be compatible with your Android tablet any time soon

The company has no plans to push its Assistant capabilities to tablets.

NVIDIA Shield Tablet and Tablet K1 updated with stability and crash fixes

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 hands-on preview: The ghost of the Note 7 lives on in this tablet

This svelte tablet is not only a performer, but it comes bundled with the software tricks and S Pen that made its phablet predecessor so popular.

I always say that the last great, fully-featured Android tablet was Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S2 because it fulfilled all the right criteria: it was stylish, thin, extremely light and came equipped with a vibrant Super AMOLED display that was really quite perfect for binge watching video.

MrMobile’s best Android tablet (is from 2015)

It’s been 15 months since Google’s Pixel C launched, and it hasn’t diminished in quality (or price). It still has some annoying bugs, and there’s still software that just won’t work in landscape mode, but after over a year since release, I still find myself gravitating toward it whenever I’m able to leave my bigger machines behind.

I’m Michael Fisher, alias MrMobile, and it’d be ridiculous for me to suggest you buy the Pixel C … at full price.  [Read More…]
