Should you buy an Android tablet in 2019?

Android tablets have become sort of a joke in the tech sphere — there are no good apps is the refrain. And, well, that's sort of true: Android's tablet applications generally aren't as robust as those available on other platforms. Even so, tablets as a form factor are unparalleled for casual media consumption, and if Android is your operating system of choice (and since you're reading this, I'll guess that it is), there are plenty of interesting hardware choices.

Lenovo Smart Tabs can place Alexa video calls with latest update

With its two-in-one Smart Tabs, Lenovo had the brilliant idea of combining a regular Android tablet and a smart display into a single device. When paired with its accompanying dock, the device transforms into an Echo Show, letting you interact with Alexa without having to purchase an additional product. Unfortunately, the Smart Tabs couldn't place video calls until now, but a new update letting you do just that has just been released.

Moto E6 launches in the US and Canada, but struggles to justify the $50 price hike

To make matters worse, the latest in the Moto E series comes with an unusually high price tag. The company launched the Moto E6 for $150 today, although it's hardly much of an upgrade over the Moto E5.

[Update: Japanese too] Smart Clocks gain support for French and German, as Lenovo expands sales

With its Smart Clock, Lenovo introduced a new type of Asssitant-enabled smart display. Unfortunately, it could only speak English when it came out, as it runs off a custom Android Things platform, which is different from the one used by Lenovo Smart Displays and Nest Hubs. However, Google just updated its official Assistant support pages to indicate the device now supports French and German.

T-Mobile's new REVVLRY phones are basically just rebranded Moto G7s

T-Mobile has been pushing its own-brand budget smartphones under the REVVL banner for a couple of years now. In the process, the series has shuffled between ODMs going through the REVVL, REVVL Plus, the REVVL T1 tablet, and REVVL 2. For its third generation of phones, the carrier has seemingly decided to partner with a very mainstream manufacturer to deliver on the all-new REVVLRY and REVVLRY+.

Moto Z3 Play Prime Exclusive with Power Pack Mod drops to all-time low of $329

Ever since Lenovo snagged Motorola, it has become a very different company than it was under Google. While the original Moto X was all about perfectly matched hardware and software, the newer high-end Moto Z phones have something else up their sleeves – Moto Mods, which can be snapped on the back of the devices to extend their functionality. The latest model in this line is the Moto Z3 Play, and we've found a deal for you: currently, the Amazon Prime exclusive version of the phone is available for $329.

[Update: Up for pre-order] The long-awaited Lenovo Smart Clock will likely go on sale imminently

When the Lenovo Smart Clock was unveiled at CES in January, it was hard not to want one despite the $79.99 price tag. It's a tiny smart display with a 4-inch screen made specifically for your nightstand and it's undeniably adorable. It's been pretty much radio silence since the announcement, however, with only a vague Spring arrival touted. New pages just added to the Lenovo support site suggest we won't have to wait much longer.
