Samsung Galaxy View: First look

15
Samsung Galaxy View

Samsung's biggest Android tablet yet is an enormous portal into a galaxy of content.

It's not just smartphones that are getting bigger. As Android handsets push past the 5.5-inch mark -- for many, eliminating the need for tablets in smaller form factors -- tablets themselves are becoming ever larger. In recent months we've seen Apple unveil the iPad Pro, Google pushing the heavy-duty Pixel C as an extension of its Nexus tablet series, and Microsoft continuing to blur the line between laptop and tablet with the Surface 4 and Surface Book. So it's only fitting that Samsung, one of the original players in the Android tablet game, is also prepping a big-screened slate.

The company has taken a shot at bigger tablets before, most notably with the 12.2.-inch Galaxy Tab Pro -- a traditional high-end Tab expanded into a larger form factor. This time around, Samsung's going even bigger, opting for a whopping 18.4-inch portal into a world of content. This is the Samsung Galaxy View, and we've had a chance to preview it ahead of the public launch at the Gear S2 showcase at Westfield White City's Galaxy Studio. Read on for our first impressions.

Amazon Fire 7-inch: How much tablet does £50 get you?

68

Amazon may have flopped when it came to launching a smartphone, but its tablets have been far more successful.

We're now several iterations in and, believe it or not, up to Version 5 of Amazon's own take on Android, Fire OS. With it we've got a new round of hardware that covers various sizes and price points.

What we have here is the 7-inch variety. It's the new entry-level offering with 8GB of internal storage and special offers, but it also costs an incredibly low £49.99 in the UK and $49.99 in the U.S. So it's potentially the most important one to look at.

Let's see what you actually get for not a lot of money.

Hands-on with the Google Pixel C

91
Pixel C

Call it a Pixel. Just don't call it a Chromebook.

OK, so the new Google Pixel C looks very much like the Chromebook Pixel. Same beautiful aluminum. Same sleek lines. This one's decidedly Android, though (thus no "Chromebook" moniker, never mind how many times I type it by mistake), and it very much is in the ilk of the Microsoft Surface and perhaps the new iPad Pro.

It's part tablet, part keyboard, with the two mated by some seriously strong magnets. They'll be available for purchase separately, but we've got a feeling most folks considering the Pixel C will want them together.

Let's take a quick look.
