Samsung just keeps on pushing Android 5.0 Lollipop updates to more and more of its devices. Today’s lucky recipient of the latest tasty treat is the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 LTE tablet, the huge device that was launched last year.
The update will take it to Android 5.0.2, and it’s currently available only in Switzerland, for units sold unlocked. You can apply it through Kies, Samsung’s desktop software, or wait for the over-the-air rollout to reach you. Remember that Samsung likes to release such updates in certain countries first, and if everything goes to plan then the software is pushed to other territories afterwards. Read more »
Recently, HTC was tipped of working on a low-end tablet set to release in coming months. Now we get more solid confirmation that HTC indeed is aiming to grab some space in the budget-level tablets across different countries.
A mysterious HTC tablet has gained Bluetooth Certification and carries 2PMW100 as the model ID. From the listing, it is quite evident that it is one of the prototype units carrying the EVT hardware version number. That means, the hardware is not finalized and may change, if that tablet is released later. Read more »

Now that it’s finally getting updated to the latest version of Android, perhaps the HTC Nexus 9 tablet might be an interesting purchase for you. If so, and if you live in the UK, you’re in luck – for there’s just been a price drop for the Nexus 9 over there.
You can now buy the entry-level 16GB Wi-Fi-only model for only £199.99. That’s a great drop from the £319 level it launched at around six months ago. The downside to this is that there’s no telling how long this offer will last, so it might be gone tomorrow. Read more »

It therefore seems that it’s finally time for such updates to trickle down to Samsung’s midrange tablets, starting with the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 as you can see. Read more »

It’s the standard product-first approach that Apple has had for a while now. Read more »

Sony is in a very peculiar position in its high-end Xperia Z-lineup with a modestly updated Xperia Z4 model announced for its local Japanese market, which will apparently be sold globally as the Xperia Z3+. This leaves a new flagship to be expected later this year, with a designation that will likely cause some more confusion.
Meanwhile, it is the 10.1-inch Xperia Z4 Tablet that is left to defend the Z4 badge in markets outside of Japan. It should come as no surprise then that we were very excited when a review unit arrived at our door. Read more »

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 has been popping up in the rumor mill quite frequently during the past few months. This is only natural, as the continuation of the company’s famous Galaxy Tab S line was bound to see the light of day sooner or later.
