Gizmag compares the features and specs of the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina Display

Last year, deciding between the iPad 4 and iPad mini was a tough decision. But this year, choosing between the iPad Air's sleeker design and the iPad mini's Retina Display is trickier than ever. Let Gizmag try to help, as we break down the differences (and increasing similarities) between Apple's iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina Display.  Read More

The second iPad Mini gets its first 'Retina Display'

As expected, Apple unveiled a new iPad Mini with an improved display upgraded to "retina" status, and a complement of new colored covers and cases for both the smaller slate and the new iPad Air.  Read More

Today Apple pulled back the curtain on the iPad Air, the new full-sized (9.7-in.) entry in...

It seems like just yesterday that Steve Jobs stood on the stage and revealed the iPad to an uncertain but eager audience. More than three and a half years later, the iPad is a household name all the world over, with a popularity that rivals the iPhone. Today Apple revealed the fifth iteration of the full-sized iPad, and it's the first to carry a major physical redesign ... and a new name.  Read More

The Lumia 2520 - Nokia's answer to the Surface 2

Nokia has unveiled the much-rumored Lumia 2520 tablet today. The device comes in a range of matte and glossy colors, and offers about what you might expect from a tablet in the Lumia range. The most prominent feature here is easily the cameras, which are more akin to what you might find on a mid-range smart phone than your average tablet.  Read More

Gizmag compares the features and specs of the Microsoft Surface 2 (left) and Surface Pro 2

The Microsoft Surface has been, by just about any measure, a commercial flop. When your company writes off US$900 million in unsold stock, well, that writing is on the wall. But that doesn't mean the first-generation Surface and Surface Pro haven't made some customers very happy. If you're part of that, ahem, "elite" group, or think you might be sometime soon, do you spring for the Surface 2 or the Surface Pro 2? Join Gizmag, as we compare Microsoft's second round of hybrid tablets.  Read More

The Miix2 8-inch tablet from Lenovo

Lenovo's Miix multi-mode tablet is about to be joined by a baby brother. The new Miix2 is the company's first 8-inch tablet, and features a latest generation Intel quad-core processor, runs Windows 8.1 and is available with an optional stylus.  Read More

The Archos Platinum Series tablets

Back in February, Archos announced three new Platinum tablets that appeared to offer top-shelf specs for wallet-friendly price tags. Sadly, only the two smaller models enjoyed a brief limited release in mostly Middle East regions, until now. The French portable consumer tech manufacturer has spruced up the Elements devices and issued a direct challenge to top-brand tablet makers like Apple and Samsung with the launch of the new Platinum Series tablets. The 116 Platinum of old has been swapped for a 10.1-inch device, which joins a 9.7-inch Retina rival and an 8-inch model. The three Android slates each feature a HD touchscreen, a quad-core processor, powerful graphics, and dual-band Wi-Fi.  Read More

The Mega sports a faux chrome plastic back

Whatever sort of smartphone you might want, Samsung has got you covered. Unlike its chief competitor, Apple, which recently broke with tradition by unveiling (gasp!) two new models of iPhone at once, the Korean monolith makes devices of all shapes and sizes. Samsung's huge 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega sprang forth from that spirit of concocting a flavor for every taste last month, and I've spent the past few weeks putting it through its paces to try to find out if there's room in my life for such a sizable smartphone. Here are a few of the conclusions I've reached over the course of my month with the Mega.  Read More

Gizmag compares the features and specs of the new Kindle Fire HDX and Apple's aging 1st-ge...

Apple's iPad and iPad mini may still rule the tablet roost, but Amazon's Kindle Fire lineup also knows how to draw a crowd. Is Apple's iPad mini a better buy than the upcoming Kindle Fire HDX? Join Gizmag, as we put the two side by side, and see what happens.  Read More

The 7-in Hudl

UK supermarket giant Tesco has announced that it is to enter the tablet computing market place later this month with the launch of its 7-inch Android slab, Hudl. Tesco says the device has been designed with "accessibility and convenience" in mind, and its £119 price tag is competitive for its able specification.  Read More
