Acer Iconia W4 review

By

The Acer Iconia W4 is the company's latest stab at a Windows 8 tablet. It's a step up from the earlier W3 model thanks to Intel Bay Trail Atom processor innards and a higher resolution 8.1-inch display. That's Windows 8.1 in an 8.1-inch tablet - it sounds... >>

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 review (2014 Edition)

By

Samsung is doing a good job for many of its devices. The Note 3 is one of our favourite phones, and the Note 2 10.1 was a tablet that we expected not to like, but ended up adoring. A new year must bring a new Note, and that is the updated Galaxy Note... >>

Let's get something out of the way before you get too deep into this review: the Nokia Lumia 2520 is Nokia's first Windows RT 8.1 tablet. While that's all fine and dandy, you must realise it competes directly with the Surface 2, the tablet-laptop combo... >>

LG G Pad 8.3: Hands-on pictures with the Nexus 7 challenger

LG's G Pad 8.3 is a smart idea for a tablet. We think this is about the right sort of size for a tablet, not as clunky as a 10-or-more-inch model, but a bit more screen real estate than a 7-inch tablet.From our, so far, limited time with the G Pad - a... >>
