Another leak is pointing to a redesigned iPad launching around September

Common sense tells us that a new iPad isn't far away. With last November's 4th-generation model being little more than a minor spec-bump, we're going on 16 months since the last significant update to the 9.7-inch iPad. Previous rumors have given us a pretty clear idea of what the next model will look like, and now we may also have a clearer idea of when Apple will announce it.  Read More

The VTech InnoTab 3 could help keep little fingers away from your tablet

The InnoTab 3 is the latest in the series of child-friendly tablets from VTech.

As with many other kids tablets, the InnoTab 3 can also be used as an eBook reader, MP3 music player, photo viewer and video player.  Read More

Gizmag reviews the Microsoft Surface Pro that combines the power of a laptop with the form...

What is a PC? When you're reviewing the Microsoft Surface Pro, asking yourself that question is practically obligatory. After all, when the device launched nearly five months ago, Windows 8 was still new, and the idea of a tablet that's every bit as productivity-oriented as a high-end laptop was still a novelty. But today, I don't think there's any question. Devices like the Surface Pro are not only the future of the Windows PC, they're already delivering some exciting possibilities in the present. Is this a cruise worth departing on now? Or is it better to give them a few years to better flesh themselves out? Let Gizmag lend a hand, as we review the Microsoft Surface Pro.  Read More

The new LeapPad Ultra from LeapFrog has a larger screen and looks more like a grown-up tab...

The LeapPad Ultra follows on from the LeapPad 2, but at first glance it's obvious that this is more than a token update. Thanks to a seven-inch screen with a 1024 x 600 resolution, it instantly looks more like a standard tablet than the LeapPad 2 (with its five-inch 480 x 272 offering). The new light-touch screen has also been designed to work with fingers or a stylus, so little users can practice their writing skills.  Read More

Lenovo's Miix multi-mode Windows 8 tablet

Lenovo has pulled back the curtain on a new Windows 8 hybrid called the Miix. Described as a multi-mode device, when docked with an optional folio case with included AccuType keyboard, the 10.1-inch tablet can be used like an Ultrabook. It's driven by a Clover Trail Atom processor, and promises up to 10 hours of continuous use between charges from the 6800 mAh Li-Pol battery. Not bad at all for something that's being priced at around US$500.  Read More

Gizmag compares the specs (and other features) of the Samsung Ativ Q and Microsoft Surface...

Say what you will about Microsoft, but you can't accuse the company of not having a plan. Windows 8 is a loud-and-clear statement about the future of the PC: it's touch-oriented, it's mobile, and it's convergent. The jury is still out on whether customers will wholeheartedly buy into that vision, but several recent devices at least give us more tangible examples of what that kind of future looks like. Let's compare two of the prime examples: Samsung's upcoming Ativ Q and Microsoft's own Surface Pro.  Read More

Samsung unveiled a bold new hybrid tablet, dubbed the Ativ Q

Microsoft's bold, mobile-centric vision for Windows 8 hasn't exactly been universally embraced. But now we might be getting a whiff of the kind of future the company was planning for. Enter the Samsung Ativ Q, a convertible x86 tablet with a thin build and an extremely high-resolution screen. Is this the future, or just another car that flies and floats?  Read More

Gizmag compares the specs (and other features) of the 11-inch MacBook Air and the 4th-gene...

Today's PC market is one of blurred lines and murky definitions. But, fortunately for us, it's also a world filled with great products. Want a computer that's both portable and powerful? You can snag a lightweight and razor-thin laptop, or you can pick up an ultra-portable and handheld tablet. Both have their pros and cons – and a lot of overlap. Let's see if we can find out just how much, as we compare the specs (and other features) of the 2013 MacBook Air to the iPad.  Read More

Mobile devices have turned the traditional PC market upside down. While Apple's "post PC" strategy is all about the iPad, the Mac still gives it a horse in the traditional PC race. Microsoft's strategy is more convergent: it wants hybrid devices like the Surface Pro to become our primary computers. How do the two measure up? Let's find out, as we compare the specs (and other features) of the 2013 MacBook Air to the Microsoft Surface Pro.  Read More

Gizmag compares the specs (and other features) of the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 and 4th-gen iPad

We're all familiar with the smartphone rivalry between Apple and Samsung. And though the two companies also sell competing tablets, things aren't quite the same on that end. Apple's iPad is still firmly planted in the driver's seat: in terms of sales, brand recognition, and critical reception. Maybe part of that can be chalked up to the fact that Samsung's Galaxy Tabs, unlike its Galaxy S smartphones, are all decidedly mid-range. Let's find out just how mid-range, as we compare the specs (and other features) of the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 and 4th-generation iPad.  Read More
