Google introduces the Pixel C 2-in-1 Android tablet to rival the Surface

October 3, 2015 by Tom in Android Tablet, Tablet with No Comments.

A new challenger to the Microsoft Surface 2-in-1 tablet is the Google Pixel C - an Android unit that has all the super-sleek and slim touches of a premium tablet along with a magnetic keyboard stand for a more traditional laptop style. The 7mm-thick Pixel C "convertible" follows in the footsteps of the Chrombook Pixel and is made of aluminium. It has a 10.2-inch, 2,560 x 1,800-pixel display at 308ppi, which'll give brilliant results. The rear cam is 8MP and the front-facer is 2MP. The brains of the operation are top notch, running on an NVIDIA Tegra X1 processor with 3GB of RAM. It's also going to be relatively cheap at launch when it's out at Christmas. The 32GB model will be $499 and the 64GB model is $599 - both plus $149 for the keyboard. [gallery link="file"] Vi

New 10-inch Amazon Fire tablet image leak sparks move to Android rumours

September 18, 2015 by Tom in Android Tablet, Other Tablet, Tablet with No Comments.

Amazon could be moving away from its Fire OS in favour of the more standard Android. This idea has come about through a leaked image of a new 10-inch Amazon Fire tablet which has a particularly Android-y display. Amazon has recently announced a a sub-$50 6-inch tablet that'll be with us by Christmas, as well as the new 4K Fire TV box, but they may have at least one more trick up their sleeve if this image is anything to go by. There's a chance this could be a hoax image but given the continued innovation from Amazon (as well as the 6-pack gimmick of the new tablets) this could be the next step in their bid to increase their tablet market share.
