Nexus 9 hands-on: Your next Nexus tablet

By 24 October 2014

Google calls the Nexus 9 a tablet for mover and makers, perhaps an indicator that the new Nexus tablet is going to be pitched at productivity, rather than just portable entertainment. Built by HTC, the Nexus 9 breaks new ground for Android with a 4:3... >>

iPad mini 3 review: A tablet that struggles to find its place

By 23 October 2014

When the iPad mini with Retina display launched alongside the iPad Air in 2013 the biggest choice you had to worry about was whether or not you wanted a 7.9-inch or a 9.7-inch screen. The message from Apple was clear: you get the same power either way.... >>

Apple iPad Air 2 review: Lighter, faster, thinner, better

By 22 October 2014

The original iPad Air is a fantastic tablet. Perfect for the home, upon its launch in 2013 it shared the stage with the more portable iPad mini with Retina display, offering equal power in different sized packages. One year on and it's the turn of the... >>

Amazon Fire HD 7 review

By 17 October 2014

Timing is everything and in the case of the Fire HD 7 tablet, Amazon has been dealt a particularly unlucky slice of it. Had the Fire HD arrived in our hands before we had a chance to play with the Tesco Hudl 2, we'd be impressed by the refresh to Amazon's... >>

Apple iPad mini 3 adds Touch ID, but makes the old model more appealing (hands-on)

By 17 October 2014

The iPad mini 3 saw itself updated at Apple's special event. But where the iPad Air 2 got plenty of investigation, the "new" iPad mini 3 was skirted over rather quickly. It got itself one screen, with blink-and-you'll-miss-it coverage, before the attention... >>

Apple iPad Air 2 preview: Thin is in, but is it enough?

By 16 October 2014

Apple has updated its iPad range with new features to entice those yet to buy an iPad, or those feeling the urge to upgrade. Questioning how you make the best tablet on the market even better, Apple's response is to make it thinner and faster. Given... >>

Tesco Hudl 2 review

By 10 October 2014

The first Tesco Hudl tablet may have come as a surprise, not least because it was more than a half-decent Android tablet for a rock-bottom price and sold 750,000 units, but that it was a success despite bearing a supermarket chain's branding. It left... >>

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro: Previewing the QHD tablet with built-in projector

By 9 October 2014

Lenovo has just unveiled what it hopes is a tablet to shake up the otherwise pretty similar world of slates. Its new Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, rather uniquely, comes with a built-in Pico projector. But it's not just a one trick pony. We got to spend some time... >>

LG G Pad 7.0 review

By 9 October 2014

The LG G Pad 7.0 is here to show that you needn't spend a fortune to get a feature-rich 7-inch tablet, acting as LG's charge to try and shake-up the reign of Google Nexus 7 rule. In this regard the G Pad packs in a few features you generally don't get... >>

Spending time with the flagship Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 (hands-on)

By 3 October 2014

Amazon's autumn/winter 2014 tablet and eBook reader refresh is headed by the Fire HDX 8.9, an 8.9-inch powerhouse of a slate that sits at the top of the retailer's line-up. Unlike the 6 and 7-inch Fire HD tablets that are more aimed at the family unit... >>
