The case for a Nexus 7P

110
Nexus 6P

Why a smaller, Huawei-built Nexus tablet would make a lot of sense.

Recently spotted online, a trademark filing for a "Huawei 7P" has the rumor mill churning once again. There's talk that this might be some kind of follow-up to the Huawei-made Nexus 6P, perhaps in a larger tablet form factor. With Google I/O just a month away, there's even speculation that such a device could even break cover at Google's annual developer conference, just as the first Nexus 7 did back in 2012.

95

Apple today took the wraps off its 9.7-inch iPad Pro, beefing up the mid-sized version of its tablet.

Google offering developers 25% off a Pixel C tablet

25

Google's Pixel C tablet wasn't exactly the second coming of Android computing we'd all been hoping for. But it just got a little better — first with the release of the N Developer Preview, and now with Google offering developers 25 percent off its latest tablet.

Technically you're supposed to be a developer to take advantage of this one — and Google says it's one redemption per person, and it doesn't apply to the keyboard.

In any event, this is gonna be one folks are going to want to take advantage of.

Discount codes are good for 25 percent off of either the 32- or 64-gigabyte models and must be redeemed by July 15.
