Google announces the new Nexus 9 tablet from HTC!

Nexus 9

Google today officially announced the Nexus 9 tablet, and along with it the return of manufacturer HTC to the Nexus fold. This is the Taiwanese manufacturer's first Nexus device since the Nexus One started things in January 2010, and it's HTC's first tablet since the failed 7-inch Flyer in early 2011, and the even more failed Jet after that.

Along with the new Nexus 6 smartphone, the Nexus 9 will be among the first devices to run production builds of Android 5.0 Lollipop, which has been in developer preview status since this summer. (And it'll have the double-tap-to-wake feature, which is interesting.)

More: See our full Nexus 9 specs!

As was widely expected, and teased in a bit of a leak recently, we're looking at a larger, more square design this time around. Same Nexus logo on the back, and with the camera and flash tucked up in the top-left corner. The front-facing camera is centered on the front of the display. There's a microUSB port on the bottom for charging.

Also of note is that the Nexus 9 marks a return to the NVIDIA Tegra chipset, with a the powerful K1 on the inside. It's got either 16 or 32GB of on-board storage for the Wifi-only model and the LTE model comes with 32GB standard.

The Nexus 9 starts at $399 and will be available for perorder Oct. 17, and in stores Nov. 3.

We've got lots more on the Nexus 9 on the way. Stay tuned.

Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 2 ad shows that massages and video calls don't mix

5

After launching the Yoga Tablet 2 and the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro yesterday, Lenovo is rolling out ads featuring Ashton Kutcher to market the devices. The ads illustrate the various modes supported by the Yoga Tablet 2, which let you prop the device up, lay it at an angle on a surface, or at an incline of 270 degrees.

Hands-on with the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2

Another multi-mode tablet in two different sizes from Lenovo

Alongside the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, Lenovo today also announced the Yoga Tablet 2 in both 8- and 10-inch sizes. Despite losing the Pro from the name, the Tablet 2 actually shares a lot in common with its bigger brother. The overall design is identical, with the same kickstand here with the same, new, hang mode.

The internals are also pretty well matched to the Pro, with the same CPU and same amount of RAM, though onboard storage is less at 16GB on both the 8- and 10-inch versions. The displays aren't quite as high-resolution, but they are still pretty nice. Both have a 1920x1200 display, which on the 8-inch in particular looks pretty sharp.

Hands-on with the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro

Lenovo went to town with its most impressive Android tablet to date

At an event in London, Lenovo pulled the wraps off this, the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro. The name is a bit of a mouthful and the tablet is certainly a handful. That's because Lenovo went big, literally, packing it out with a 13.3-inch QHD display. At this size it's a tablet as big as many laptops, but if you're looking for something to help you consume a lot of media then it's got you well covered.

Quickly recapping the main specs, beneath that 2560x1440 resolution display is a quad-core Intel Atom CPU, 2GB of RAM and 32GB onboard storage. Round the back there's an 8MP camera and it's running Android 4.4 KitKat.

Lenovo announces Yoga Tablet 2 in 8- and 10-inch flavors

And you can now hang your tablet up, too

Lenovo has today announced a pair of new Android tablets in its Yoga lineup, the Yoga Tablet 2. Like its predecessor it also comes in both 8-, and 10-inch sizes and has a design centered around the fold out kickstand. And presumably thanks to a hole in that kickstand, the Yoga Tablet 2 now has a fourth 'mode,' known as hang.

Neither the 8- nor 10-inch models are particularly lacking on the hardware front with a bump in the internals and the display resolution since the original Yoga tablet graced us with its presence.

Lenovo's most impressive Android tablet to date isn't lacking on the hardware front

Lenovo is back with another crack at Android tablets with this, the latest and greatest in its Yoga line. The Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, to give it its full title, isn't any old slab, it's a 13.3-inch, QHD tablet with the same sort of adjustable kickstand seen on previous efforts.

Besides being pretty large and having an impressive sounding display, the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro also houses its own integrated projector which Lenovo says is enough to create a 50-inch "home theater experience" on any flat surface.
