The new Iconia Tab 10 features a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 IPS display with a Zero Air Gap touch panel and Corning's Gorilla Glass 4. The results in an expanded 170-degree viewing angle to the device, while allowing for great contrast and sharpness from the scratch and damage resistant screen. It's not the widest viewing angle, but it's better than most cheap tablets. On the display Acer has also added a fingerprint-resistant coating in hopes of being able to keep your screen as clean as possible.

ASUS MeMO Pad 7 mini review

31

The MeMO Pad 7, with its expandable storage, gorgeous design and sub-$200 pricetag is almost too good a bargain to pass up.

Starting with its Nexus 7 back in 2012 and the follow-up a year later, ASUS created an ultraportable tablet that avoided the pitfalls that typically plague the category. It was one of the first budget-friendly Android tablets to prove that flimsy build quality, underpowered internals and a bogged-down UI weren't unavoidable sacrifices. The lessons that the Nexus 7 taught ASUS — as well as some leftover parts from the assembly line — helped shape the MeMO Pad 7, a stunning evolutionary step in ASUS's MeMO line and easily one of my favorite tablets on the market today.

Lenovo's new device lineup includes a pair of tablets and a fun new projector

18

Any suspicion that Motorola had already begun influencing Lenovo's product lineup has been completely dismissed.

Lenovo has no shortage of new products to show off at Mobile World Congress this year, and it's clear their focus for this generation is split between maintaining their current product lines and exploring new categories. While their Android lineup still includes traditional smartphone and tablet experiences that show a clear evolution of their current hardware lineup, there's a new "pro-level" camera and a Micracast friendly projector that are all about extending the Android experience, which is a cool direction for Lenovo to be heading in.

SanDisk's new embedded iNAND flash storage boasts stupid fast write speeds

7

There are bottlenecks throughout the modern smartphone, but SanDisk is working to make their path as wide as possible with their new iNAND 7132 embedded flash storage.

While SanDisk is well known for their consumer memory products — SD cards, microSD cards, USB flash drives, replacement SSDs, and so forth — a major (and under-appreciated by the general consumer) part of their business is actually in selling embedded flash storage to device manufacturers.

Hands-on with HP's Pro Slate 8 (and the giant 12-inch one) and its crazy stylus

13
HP Pro Slate 12

We've been intrigued by the idea of the HP Pro Slate 8 and 12 since they were announced, and after checking them out at MWC 2015, we're really kind of impressed.

There was a time not long ago where the only tablet manufacturers worth mentioning were Apple and Samsung. Today that's all changed, with practically every major company that makes Android tablets actually making one that's pretty good. HP's no exception — they've had some major disappointments in Android tablets, for sure — but their new HP Pro Slate 8 and Pro Slate 12 tablets seem really good, if not potentially great, now that we've got our paws on them.

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet hands-on

18

Sony brings Lollipop, Snapdragon 810 and a 2K display to its latest Xperia tablet.

Although Sony's tablet line hasn't seen massive widespread success, the Japanese manufacturer has arguably offered some of the most compelling Android slates around. Last year saw the arrival of the Xperia Tablet Z2 and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact which, in spite of their wonky branding, offered high-end specs and some unique hardware tricks. In addition to being super thin, Sony's tablets were waterproof, extremely lightweight and well-built.

So what's next for Sony? At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Sony's showing the latest large form factor tablet in its Xperia line — the Xperia Z4 Tablet is a 64-bit, Snadragon 810-powered slate with a 2K display; read on for our first impressions.

22

Lenovo has introduced the TAB 2 A10-70 and TAB 2 A8 Android tablets for the budget crowd.

Lenovo is taking the wraps off two new tablets at Mobile World Congress that aim to offer great value for your money. The TAB 2 A10, starting at $199, is Lenovo's 10-inch model with a full HD display, a soundbar built into the back using some new Dolby Atmos speaker technology, and ten hours of battery life. The A10 is powered by a 64-bit 1.5 GHz quad-core MediaTek processor and has 2 GB of RAM. It's 8.9 mm thin and 509 grams, which is pretty good, but unfortunately runs Android 4.4 (for now). There's an 8 megapixel camera on the back, and it will be available in blue or white color schemes when it launches in April.
