    Alcatel Plus 10 is an LTE-Connected 2-in-1 Device

    2-in-1 devices are pretty terrific as travel companions, staying lightweight while providing just enough power for a decent laptop computing experience. So, it’s kind of mystery why more of them don’t have LTE connectivity (besides the need to keep the price down). Alcatel thinks this problem is their way into the 2-in-1 device category, and […]

    Lenovo TAB3 Series Proves Budget Tablets Can Still Be Sweet

    With tablet sales leveling off, creating new budget tablets is becoming increasingly hard to justify.

    Lenovo MIIX 310 is a Budget Tablet That Comes With a Keyboard

    Too often in the budget 2-in-1 market, we see tablets that can be purchased with keyboard docks sold separately, which suddenly make them not all that great as budget options.

    Can The Microsoft Surface 3 Be Your One and Only?

    It’s been a few weeks since we started using Microsoft’s Surface 3, and we’ve been really impressed with its capability. It’s not their pro model, but it’s far from what we’d call “budget”.

    Spending Time with the Microsoft Surface 3

    The new Surface, not to be confused with the Surface Pro, is one of Microsoft’s latest tablets, and despite its low price-point, it’s impressively capable. To that effect, Surface 3 replaces the previous generation of watered down RT models, making it Microsoft’s lightest, thinnest, and most affordable model. That said, Surface 3 is the best of both […]

    Disney Device Helps Parents Control Their Kids Mobile Devices

    The internet opens up a whole new world to kids everywhere, but maybe that’s not a world parents want their kids to see too soon. That’s why we have parental control software.

    Tablets, once billed as PC killers, have been evolving as tablet sales have leveled off after a meteoric rise out of the gate.

    I almost want to say you should just hold off on buying an Amazon tablet, because at this rate, I wouldn’t be surprised if they started paying you to take them in a few years.
