But if all you’re looking for is an e-reader, then maybe $  [Read More…]

The innovative display … the gorgeous hinge … the futuristic keyboard … or the crazy cool pen input — there are loads of reasons to love the Lenovo Yoga Book.

I’ve seen lots of Android tablets in my day. Even the odd Android-powered laptop. I’ve seen Android tablets that sort-of try to become laptops. Today, though, we truly have the first one that’s able to both — and then some. That beast, of course, is the Lenovo Yoga Book, which  [Read More…]

Amazon Fire HD 8: Finally, a tablet worthy of your kids

See at Amazon

Have kids? Have kids who are always “borrowing” your tablet? Maybe get them this instead!

Fun fact: Kids like stealing their parents’ tablets. Maybe they’re just watching videos. Maybe Pokémoning. (That’s a verb, right?) Maybe they’re just catching up on emails and building new slide decks. (My kids are weird. Don’t ask.)

Thing is, I’ve never really found a tablet I actually want to let my kids use. High-end tablets like the Pixel are too  [Read More…]

Why the $49 Amazon Fire tablet is a great buy this holiday

In the past we’ve steered people clear of really cheap Android tablets at holiday time. Not this year.

The Amazon Fire Tablet is both really cheap and Android, though perhaps not the Android you’re used to. There’s no Google to be found, which means no Play Store or Google Apps of any kind.

But if you go for the 7-inch Fire you’re only going to be asked to part with $ 49 of your hard-earned cash.  [Read More…]
