Secusmart, a subsidiary of BlackBerry, has announced the SecuTABLET Android tablet, which is essentially a Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 with beefed up security. It'll cost $2,400, which is five times the price of a regular tablet so it should be five times as secure. The tablet will be fully unveiled at the CeBIT trade show in Germany but it's known so far that the tablet supports the BlackBerry 10 portfolio and SecuSUITE infrastructure for secure voice and data communications. It also adds a layer of security for apps such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, as well as encryption services for data, networks and software interactions. It'll feature a 10.5-inch, 2560 x 1600-pixel AMOLED display, 3GB of RAM, 16GB storage and microSD expansion. Via liliputing

LiveFan F3S-X Chinese dual-boot Windows and Android tablet

March 10, 2015 by Tom in Android Tablet, Tablet, Windows Tablet with No Comments.

The latest dual-boot Chinese tablet of note is the LiveFan F3S-X, which runs Android 4.4.4 and Windows 8.1. The tablet has a 10.1-inch IPS display at 1,920 x 1,200 pixels. It runs on an Intel Z3736F quad-core processor and comes with 2GB of RAM and a generous 64GB of storage. The cameras aren't much to write home about, at just 2MP front and back, but everyone has phones for that these days anyway (rather than cameras, which is still pretty odd). It supports WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, 3G and 4G connectivity and it also packs a big 8,000mAh battery. It also allows USB connection via its USB 2.0 port, as well as the microUSB port for charging. All considered, the $270 price tag isn't too bad at all. Via tablet-news

March 8, 2015 by Tom in Android Tablet, Tablet with No Comments.

Huawei has announced two mid-price MediaPad T1 Android tablet variations, both of which will feature Android 4.4 skinned with the custom EMUI user interface, which is closer to iOS in feel. The new T1 10 and T1 7 correspond with their screen sizes and support 4G LTE. The T1 10 has a 9.6-inch 1280 x 800-pixel IPS display and runs on a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. It has 1GB of RAM, 16GB storage and a 4,800mAh battery. So while they're quite entry level stats, the 4G LTE pulls it above competitors in the 250 euro range. The new T1s will be out late March. Via mobilegeeks

Archos to launch 256GB Fusion Storage Magnus tablets

March 4, 2015 by Tom in Android Tablet, Archos, Hardware News, Tablet with No Comments.

Archos will launch its Magnus series tablets later this year and they'll incorporate its new "Fusion Storage" memory. Archos' Fusion Storage virtually combines internal storage and microSD expansion, with the idea being that Android will treat it all as internal memory. Of course, with the speed of microSD transfers being slower than internal memory, Archos have some questions to answer about how this will be a smooth system. This'll appear in due course, but for now they've announced the first run of tablets that'll feature Fusion Storage. The 101 Magnus will feature 64GB of storage, while no doubt all eyes will be on the 94 Magnus, which will feature 256GB Fusion Storage. They'll run on MediaTek or Rockchip processors and will cost between £129-£249 (US$198-380). For full

February 12, 2015 by Tom in Android Tablet, Tablet, Windows Tablet with No Comments.

The next Pipo tablet to utilize an Intel Core M processor will be a dual boot Windows and Android tablet. It has a 10.1-inch display and runs on the M-5Y10C chip. It comes with an impressive 4GB DDR3 RAM and supports USB 3.0 and SD card expansion. The only thing to look out for here is as it's a large tablet, the Windows side of it might just be the trial, which will need to be activated at cost after 30 days. Windows aside, with its specs it could just serve as a solid Android slate. It's expected to be out for around $399. Via liliputing
