The Android tablet market is a proverbial scarce wasteland these days. It has been quite some time since we saw something from Samsung or Asus, two of the last major stalwart players in this space (excluding Amazon, obviously). Tablets are not what they were in years past, though I personally still find having one useful for certain situations, despite Android leaving much to be desired in this aspect. Read More
The maelstrom that is Black Friday has come and gone, but there are still outstanding deals to be had in the calm before Cyber Monday. Take the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, for instance: With a display that's tough to beat and helpful multitasking capabilities, the tablet remains one of the more enticing options out there today. Lately, it's becoming one of the more heavily discounted tablets, too. Now you can buy an open-box Tab S3 for just $369.99, which is a rather handsome $230 discount. Read More
With Black Friday around the corner, it's just about the perfect time of the year for the dozens of you who are in the market for a new Android tablet. As a prelude to the peak season for big discounts on products that have modest demand, Costco has a sweet deal on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, one of the few legitimately premium Android tablets out there. Costco members can scoop up the Tab S3 for just $459.99, which knocks $140 off the original price. The deal includes $20 in Google Play credit, bringing the total discount on the tablet to $160, if you're fine with that sort of math. Read More

Have you ever walked through a mall and passed by the Apple store and stared longingly at the iPad Mini and thought to yourself, "Man, I sure wish I could buy one of those that ran Android"?
Well, I have some (kinda) good news for you. Today I'm reviewing the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3, a 7.9in Chinese tablet that has no shame in borrowing a healthy dose of design cues from a certain fruit logo-bearing competitor. For better or worse, the Mi Pad 3 looks an awful lot like an iPad Mini in Android clothing. Is it as good, or better than the tablet it is imitating? Read More
Android tablets are in a bit of a lull right now, so I understand if you think this may not be the perfect time to invest in a Pixel C. But if you do want a new Android tablet, maybe for yourself or as a Christmas gift for someone, then the Pixel C should be a top contender. It runs Android 7.0 Nougat, has a 10.2" 2560 x 1800 display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of storage, and the Tegra X1 may not be the hottest processor on the bloc, but it does the job fine enough. The big deterrent however, is probably the hefty price tag, but that is changing for the next couple of weeks. Read More
Android tablets are dying. There are signals that bear this out: sales estimates, web traffic, an utter absence of meaningful innovation or even competitive products in the segment. We've watched Android tablets struggle from day one: when Samsung's Galaxy Tab was utterly panned for its subpar performance and pricing, to the years of Honeycomb suffering under the yoke of underpowered chipsets and endless bugs, and finally to the unspoken abandonment of Android tablets by Google's own app teams over the past few years. Android tablets have never been particularly lively, but in 2016, I think we've finally watched the market's pulse near flat-line. Read More
The Chromebook Pixel launched in 2013, and a replacement followed up in March of this year. Now Google plans to expand the Pixel brand to tablets with the Pixel C. And no, it won't be running Chrome OS.

This isn't your typical Kickstarter. Jeremy Chau, one of the company's co-founders, states it clearly from the get-go in the campaign's introductory video. Remix isn't a bunch of over-promised under-delivered hogwash that may get stuck for years in the development and manufacturing process like 90% of Kickstarter products — it is a real tablet, it was demo'ed at CES, and it's already being sold in China.
Jide, the company behind Remix, is founded by 3 ex-Googlers — the magical words that instantly make any project more legit. Read More
