Samsung's Galaxy Tab A7 Lite makes its retail debut at an impulse-buy price

Samsung's Galaxy Tab A7 Lite makes its retail debut at an impulse-buy price

Android tablets can be a tough sell. With phone screens as stupid-big as they are these days, and laptops as light and portable as you'll find, tablets have been feeling a little shouldered-out. But even as they face fierce competition, they still shine at tasks like media consumption and video conferencing. There are quite a few solid offerings in the Android space to choose from, with Samsung really dominating. Last month we saw the company introduce the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite, and today we're getting word of its very affordable retail debut.

Android's got some good ones, but the iPad is widely considered to be the gold standard when it comes to tablets. This year's iPad Pro models pack the same Apple-designed M1 chip that's used in the new iMacs, so they're crazy powerful for tablets. The 11-inch model is also already on sale: you can get it for $50 off at Amazon and Walmart.

Copying and pasting on Chromebook tablets is about to get a lot easier

Copying and pasting on Chromebook tablets is about to get a lot easier

The virtual keyboard on Chrome OS has been a sore point for many Chromebook tablet owners. Ranging from unreliable autocorrect to buggy input, the typing experience on it is still pretty lackluster to this day. Last year, it did at least receive improved handwriting recognition, a major UI facelift, and an option to change its size. Now, Google is getting ready to integrate one of our favorite Chrome OS 89 features.

Google is going to replace Google Discover on tablets with a new interface

We all know that Android tablets aren't exactly the industry benchmark, and Google has mostly stopped creating first-party products for this market. But the company still hasn't given up on tablets. It has just announced an "Entertainment Space" that should make Android tablets vastly better at giving you access to your streaming services, ebooks, and games — right on the leftmost panel of your homescreen.

Are there Android tablets worth buying instead of an iPad?

Are there Android tablets worth buying instead of an iPad?

Apple announced a bunch of new stuff today at its spring event, including several new iPad models.

The 20 best tablet-optimized apps for Android

The 20 best tablet-optimized apps for Android

Google hasn't had much of an interest in Android tablets since the days of the Motorola XOOM and Android Honeycomb. As a result, most of the company's apps aren't designed with tablets in mind, and third-party applications have largely followed suit. Sure, Android tablets can technically run all Android apps, but many of them have stretched-out layouts that were intended for 6-inch screens. Some even force a portrait orientation (Google Tasks, I'm looking at you).
