Android Police presents a fictionalized account of the creation of the Verizon Ellipsis 8 tablet.

Basking Ridge, New Jersey, November 5th, 2014

Verizon Wireless corporate headquarters

"I can't believe those jerks at Motorola. A week, a freakin' week after we debut the most powerful, spec-heavy phone in the country as a Verizon exclusive, they go and scrape our magnificent paint off the case and sell it themselves!"

"The Moto Maxx is only being sold in Latin America, sir.

[IFA 2014] Samsung Thinks The World Needs A Ruggedized Tablet, Releases The 8-Inch Galaxy Tab Active To Prove It

So far Samsung's "Active" mini-series has exactly two devices, the Galaxy S4 Active and the Galaxy S5 Active. (Three, if you count Sprint's S5 Sport variant.) At IFA 2014, the company is expanding its ruggedized horizons into the tablet world with the Galaxy Tab Active, an 8-inch device with the same IP67 water and dust protection, plus a chunky body that can resist drops of up to 1.2 meters (four feet).

Samsung Announces The Galaxy Tab 4 Line In 7, 8, and 10.1-inch Varieties, All Packing KitKat And Mediocre Specs

With the introduction of the Galaxy TabPRO series earlier this year, you might expect the older Galaxy Tab line to continue to occupy the lower end of the market. And you'd be right: the Galaxy Tab 4 (or, stylized, Tab4) devices roughly follow in the footsteps of the Tab 3 hardware with 7-inch, 8-inch, and 10.1-inch varieties. And yes, they still have physical navigation buttons.

All three Tab4 models will be offered in WiFi, 3G, and LTE flavors, though the mobile versions probably won't make it to America any time soon.

Lenovo Announces Curvy Yoga Tablets With Built-in Kickstands: 8-Inch For $249, 10-Inch For $299, Available October 30th

Tablets are in a bit of a rut as far as form factors go. Aside from ASUS' Transformer models and imitators, they're basically all monolithic slates with very little in the way of variation. Lenovo is trying to buck that trend with its new Yoga tablet line, which borrows the name from the company's flexible and well-received convertible laptops. These tablets feature an exaggerated curve on one side of the case (sort of like a more pronounced version of the Notion Ink Adam).

LG G Pad 8.3 Is Now Available In The U.S. For $349, Offered In Both Black And White

Remember the LG Optimus Pad? It came out back in 2011, a time when seeing Android running on a tablet was relatively new. I bring it up now because that was the last time LG released a tablet in the US. Today the company has announced the immediate availability of its successor, the LG G Pad 8.3, a slightly smaller tablet that will retail for a lower price of $349.99.

Samsung Announces The Galaxy Tab 3 In 8-Inch And 10.1-Inch Flavors, Launching In Early June [Update: Intel CPU For 10.1]

We knew it was coming. After the rather disappointing reveal of the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3, Samsung unveiled two new models today. The 8-inch Tab 3 bears a striking resemblance to the Galaxy Note 8, while the 10.1-inch version extends the design language first introduced in the Galaxy S III smartphone to the 10.1-inch form factor... buttons and all. Both models are mild refreshes of older Tab variants (though the 8-inch Galaxy Tab 3 could bee seen as a mix of the 8.9 and 7.7).
