Microsoft got off to a bit of a rocky start with its first two Surface Pros, but we still thought there was a lot to like in the laptop/tablet hybrids. With an aggressive update schedule, we're now seeing the third
Surface Pro just a year and a half after the first one hit store shelves. Before we deliver our full Surface Pro 3 review, let's take a quick first look at Microsoft's new 2-in-1.
Samsung's Galaxy Tab S
rivals the iPad more than anything else, but the tablet is also launching with a Bluetooth keyboard that can transform it into a faux laptop. And who knows faux laptops better than Microsoft? Let's pit the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 against the Surface Pro 3
, and see how their features and specs compare.
Samsung has always tried to eat into the iPad's tablet market share, but last week the company got really
serious. The Galaxy Tab S
is a spec monster squeezed into an impossibly light and thin frame. How do the features and specs of the the 8.4-in Tab S compare to those of the iPad mini with Retina Display
? Read on, for Gizmag's look.
It seems like just a few months ago that Samsung was unveiling its first high-end tablets (and, come to think of it, it was only five short months ago
). But at an event this evening at Madison Square Garden in New York City, Samsung pulled back the curtain on what it's describing as its first flagship
tablet, the Galaxy Tab S. Gizmag was there for some quality hands-on time.
It's easy to forget, but Barnes & Noble's Nook Color
was, in a sense, a "Kindle Fire" before the Kindle Fire ever was. Amazon's bookselling rival launched the first budget 7-in e-reader/tablet hybrid in late 2010, a full year before the 1st-gen Fire
hit store shelves. Well, fortunes change, Nook tablets weren't exactly smash hits and today all that's left of B&N's tablet strategy is a new partnership with Samsung.
There was a time when 2-in-1 laptop-cum-tablets were a niche tool and a bit clunky to use. Quickly, however, they've become much slicker and will surely become a mainstream device in the future. Presumably of the same mind, Toshiba has just released two such pieces of kit.
It's often said that that you shouldn't mix business with pleasure. If that's the case, someone needs to tell the folks at Dell, because the high-end business-focused Venue 11 Pro tablet is a joy to use. We already knew its specs looked impressive, but after testing it, we didn't want to give it back.
Microsoft is branding the Surface Pro 3
as "a tablet that can replace your laptop." But, with an enormous 12-in screen, maybe the real question is whether this pseudo-laptop can replace your tablet? Let's pit its features and specs against those of the iPad Air
, and see what happens.
Microsoft may be pitching its Surface Pro 3
as "a tablet that can replace your laptop," but is it really an upgrade from the setup you already have? Let's take a look, as Gizmag compares the features and specs of the Surface Pro 3 and 11-in MacBook Air
Here we are just eight months after the Surface 2
and Surface Pro 2
hit store shelves, and, what do you know, we're looking at yet another new model. Let's see how the features and specs of the Surface Pro 3
compare to those of the Surface Pro 2.
