Samsung made a solid tablet, but it isn't perfect — and at this price you almost expect it to be.
The quick take
The Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 is thin, light, powerful, has a great screen, and is sprinkled with extra features like a fingerprint sensor, good battery life, a decent rear-facing camera and a solid side-by-side app implementation. Unfortunately it still comes up short with Samsung's...
The holidays are upon us, and the question is ... what are you getting?
Whatever your cause for indulging, the final six weeks of the year generally are a popular time for gift-giving, something retailers could not be more eager to accommodate. And so we tapped into our communities of Android, Apple, Windows and BlackBerry fans — more than 5,000 of you in North America from Nov. 25-Dec. 5 — to...
If you've ever seen a SmartBoard in a classroom, you know how cool it is to be able to walk up to a projector screen with a pen and interact with a desktop environment. The only real downside to most SmartBoard setups is the use of Windows, usually an older version of Windows that doesn't play all that well with what is essentially a touch environment. TouchJet has taken this idea and replaced...
Google now has two compelling tablets in its stable, even if one is an aging workhorse.
In many respects Google now has competing product lines. There's Nexus, which since 2010 has represented Google's vision of Android on both a hardware and software level. And now there's Pixel — or, more specifically, the Pixel C tablet — which ... well, we're still not entirely sure where the Pixel C fits...
Samsung is running yet another nice promotion, but unlike the other promotions this one is not for a phone. This time, its for its Galaxy Tab S2 series of tablets. People who purchase one between December 13 and December 26 in the U.S. will be able to get a year-long subscription to Netflix for free.
Google's Pixel team this week took to Reddit for an AMA (that's "ask me anything," for those not in the know). AMA's are an excellent way to promote things, and for fans of those things to interact with the folks who make the things that are being promoted. Ask a good question, and maybe it'll be answered.
And in this case it was interesting to get even more confirmation that perhaps the Pixel...
Do you need a $149 keyboard for this shiny new tablet? Maybe.
The new Pixel C has a couple of keyboard covers available for it. Both are $149, and both are currently the only official way to protect the display of the tablet. The good news is that both are pretty capable — and technologically interesting — keyboards. The question is whether you really need one to make the most of the Pixel C...
It's a Google tablet, which feels both familiar and a little different.
Google's Pixel C — its first completely in-house tablet — is now shipping. And as it's been more than a year since we've had a new Google tablet — the HTC Nexus 9 was the previous one — a lot of folks are looking at this one as their next not-quite-a-laptop solution.
The Pixel C, as you'll recall, is a 10.2-inch tablet...
We've got a shiny new Pixel C with a couple keyboards. You've got questions. And so we're answering the heck out of them in our forums today, and until such time as we no longer answer anymore questions because of daylight, dehydration, or both.
So if you've got questions about the brand new Pixel C, now's the time to ask them. In the forums. Click here to do so.
The Pixel C is the latest tablet from Google, and unlike previous Nexus-branded tablets this one has a bit of a different feel to it because it comes from the Pixel line — which previously just included Chromebooks. With an odd aspect ratio, removable keyboard and solid specs, it's an interesting device for sure — here's everything under the metal that keeps it running.
Google has finally officially unveiled the Pixel C. The tablet was first shown off at the end of September, but Google didn't give a ton of information at the time about it. The tablet is now officially available, and ready to be purchased. Running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the Pixel C features a 10.2-inch display that is one of the brightest tablets out there. Additionally, the tablet has...
The wait is over, you can now purchase the Pixel C. First announced back in September, the Pixel C is the next-gen tablet that is 100 percent Google, and it comes packing some impressive specs inside. With a 10.2-inch display that has a resolution of 2560x1800, the tablet comes equipped with NVIDIA's Tegra X1 processor that is paired with 3GB of RAM.
People who love to read ebooks, but also want to get a full-featured tablet instead of an ereader, might want to check out Amazon's newest member of the Fire tablet family.

Amazon has announced that its latest Fire Tablet, which is the most affordable one from the company yet, is now available in China. In addition to bringing the tablet to China, Amazon is announcing a new agreement with Baidu to bring search, apps and online video experience to customers.
British bargain hunters this Black Friday should head over to Expansys if a tablet is something you're looking for, as the online retailer has a great deal on a Nexus 9. You can snag a bundle of a 32GB Nexus 9 in Sand, a Chromecast and a free Magic Cover for the reduced price of £269.99. It's a first generation Chromecast and is "refurbished," but it's still a good deal.

You owe it to yourself to avoid buying something terrible.
We've all been there, scrolling down the list of sales online or flipping through the heap of ads that arrive in the newspapers that week. A tablet that was "regularly priced at $299" is going to be available for $50, but only to the first 20 people in line who ask for them. That tablet never cost $299. The store probably didn't spend...
