Anyway, the two new tablets both fall under “Transformer Pad” name but they are actually two fairly different 10.1″ tablets. Read more »
Asus unveiled a large number of devices at the start of Computex, including four laptops – the Asus Transformer Book V, Transformer Book T300 Chi, Transformer Book Flip and Zenbook NX500. To call the Transformer Book V a “laptop” would be like calling a centaur a horse, however. Asus calls it “the world’s first five-mode, three-in-one converged laptop”.
It’s the device Asus was teasing with the blender video. Read more »
Samsung is now seeding Android 4.4 KitKat firmware updates for two of its most popular slates – the original Galaxy Note 10.1 and the LTE flavor of its successor – the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition.
Samsung began updating the Wi-Fi-only (Exynos-based) Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition six weeks ago. Now that its LTE-enabled Snapdragon 800-powered sibling is jumping on the KitKat bandwagon as well, we guess the 3G-enabled models should follow suit soon. Read more »

There’s still some time before Samsung officially announces its new duo of Galaxy Tab S tablets on June 12. We already have a general idea of what they’re all about, especially the Galaxy Tab S 10.5″ one, but thanks to a listing from the AnTuTu Benchmark database, we can now see the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 key specs.
