Google Nexus 9 review

By 

It's been nearly five years since Google released its very first Nexus device, and by now we all basically get what the Nexus name stands for. It's all about building devices to show off the bleeding-edge version of Android, to give us a better sense of Google's vision of our collective mobile future. That future isn't just phones, either: It's about screens of all sizes, and that's why Google and HTC teamed up to build the new Nexus 9. Now that ancestors like the Nexus 7 and 10 have been forcibly shuffled off this mortal coil, the 9 stands alone as the sole tablet in Google's Nexus hardware lineup. So, does it live up to the standard geeks expect from the Nexus name? And more importantly, is it actually worth the asking price?

Apple's October event, traditionally the day the company announces the next generation of iPads, appears to be set for October 16th. That means leaks should start coming fast and furious — and Tinhte.vn may have one of the best yet. The Vietnamese site published a set of pictures purporting to be the next iPad Air, featuring basically all of the upgrades we've been expecting from the next generation of Apple's tablets.

Microsoft Surface is here to stay



Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella made the pitch this morning that his company’s Surface project is here to stay, hoping to convince potential business customers that investing in the tablet-hybrids won’t leave them in the lurch.

Out this morning from Microsoft’s chief is a quote calling the Surface Pro 3 an “enterprise-class device,” saying that the company is “putting its full and sustained support behind the ongoing Surface program.”

As part of that announcement, the company promised that peripherals that shipped to support the Surface Pro 3 will work for the next Pro device. When Microsoft moved from the Surface Pro 2 tablet design, to the Surface Pro 3, old peripherals became too small, in many cases — the Surface Pro 3 has a much larger screen.

Apple’s iPad Update Plans Could Put Gold First And Offer 12.9″ Model For 2015

 

by Darrell Etherington (@drizzled)

    
Apple could add gold to the menu for the next version of the 9.7-inch iPad Air, according to Bloomberg, and then introduce a 12.9-inch version of its tablet next year. This is in line with rumors we’ve heard from Bloomberg before, which pegged a large-screen iPad as being added to the lineup back in August. But the note regarding the color update for the new iPad is interesting in that it specifically refers to 9.7-inch models, and suggests that we might not see huge changes for Apple’s tablet lineup this update cycle.
