Best Accessories for the Amazon Fire HD 10

Best Accessories for the Amazon Fire HD 10

You've got a sweet little tablet that didn't break the bank. That leaves some money left over for accessories!

The Amazon Fire HD 10 is a remarkably good tablet for the price. Starting at $149, you get a 10-inch device that does everything Amazon has to offer — that's movies, TV, books, games, the web — and it does it very well.

But getting the tablet itself is just the start. You're going to want to snag a few accessories for the Fire HD 10.

Here's where I'd start.

Buy a Fire HD 10 case

Look, the Fire HD 10 isn't all that expensive. But you still want to protect your investment. I'd pick up (and I did pick up) a case for this thing. Amazon's first-party offering is a sort of fabric-covered plastic shell. It fits nicely and isn't horrible to take off if you so desire.

It's also not exactly inexpensive, at $39. But it does come in a few colors, so it's got that going for it. Which is nice.

If you're even thinking about letting a kid handle one of these tablets, you need to get a case for it. Full stop.

Get a microSD card

Amazon Fire HD 10 SD card

The Amazon Fire HD tablets don't have all that much storage in them out of the box. The Fire HD 10 starts at 32GB, or you can pay more for 64GB of internal storage.

Or, you can just slap in a microSD card — all the way up to 256GB. That's a ridiculous amount of storage in a very inexpensive tablet.

Why go this route? Sure, apps take up space. But content can take up even more. If you're going to be downloading a lot of movies and other videos for offline watching (that's the sort of thing you do if you have kids, right?) then you're going to want some extra storage.

Really, it's about the best investment you can make with one of these tablets.

Seriously, though, just get this

My recommendation? Pick up the Fire HD 10 Essentials bundle. You get the base-model Fire HD 10, the $39 cover, and a $15 screen protector for $190, saving yourself $15 in the process. (And you can use that extra money to pick up a 32GB microSD card, doubling the storage in the process.)

How to get rid of the ads on an Amazon Fire HD tablet with 'special offers'

How to get rid of the ads on an Amazon Fire HD tablet with 'special offers'

Amazon Fire HD 10

Amazon Fire HD 10

If you decide you can't stand the "special offer" ads on a Fire HD tablet, $15 and a few mouse clicks will take care of things.

So you bought yourself a shiny new Amazon Fire HD tablet. And because you're the frugal sort, you bought one at the lowest price you could — the kind with "special offers." Ads, in other words. Ads on the lock screen and in the notification pull-down.

And you've decided you chose poorly. So is there any way to get those ads off an Amazon Fire tablet after you've bought it?

There sure is.

You're going to be doing this from a web browser, either on the tablet itself or on a computer. You'll just be diving into your Amazon account settings is all. Here's how to do it.

First, hit up this link to go to "Manage your Content and Devices" in your Amazon account. (I'll leave it to you to figure out how to log in, because you're an adult.)

This is what you're looking for This is what you're looking for.

Once you're in there you'll see a messy page with three tabs — "Your Content," "Your Devices," and "Settings." Click on "Your Devices."

This next part gets a little tricky, because the page could look a couple different ways.

If you just see a list of devices — without pictures of the devices — do this: Find the device you want to kill the special offer ads from. In my case, my Fire HD 10 is "Phil's 4th Fire." Now hit the three dots to the left of that name. That'll pop open more information on that device.

The other view will show you thumbnails of all your devices, so all you have to do is choose the proper one. Click or tap on it.

Now look for the line that says "Special Offers/Offers and Ads." If you're "subscribed," that means you're seeing the lock-screen ads. If it says "unsubscribed," you're already good and don't see those ads.

To change things one way or the other, hit the "Edit" button on that line. If you unsubscribe to the ads, Amazon will charge your account $15 as a one-time fee. (That's the same amount you'd pay you bought the tablet without the ads in the first place.)

So good on Amazon for not charging a little extra to remove the ads later. My advice? Buy the cheap one and see how much the ads bother you. Because you can always get rid of them later.

Amazon Fire HD 10 and Fire HD 8

When you think of Android tablets, it's time to think of Amazon.

Amazon's not overly flashy about it, but it's got a couple of the better Android tablets available today. That's perhaps damning with faint praise, but hear me out. The Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 perhaps get you the most bang for your buck. Certainly that's true for Android-based tablets, and you could well argue it's true of any tablet anywhere.

The basics: As the names imply, Amazon has an 8-inch tablet and a 10-inch tablet. They're both running the "Fire OS" operating system, which is Amazon's own version of Android. They get apps from the Amazon Appstore, and have full access to Amazon Music, Books, Video, Movies and everything else Amazon does.

And both are inexpensive. Not relatively inexpensive, but downright cheap. But they're cheap without really feeling cheap, ya know?

What else do you need, right?

OK, you need to choose between the two. We can help. Here's what I'd consider between the Amazon Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10.

See Fire HD tablets at Amazon

Amazon Fire HD 10 and Fire HD 8 The Amazon Fire HD 10 ($149 at Amazon) and Fire HD 8 ($79 at Amazon).

Comparing Fire HD prices

As you'd expect, the larger Fire HD cost more than the smaller. But there's more to break down here. Each is available with "special offers," which means there are ads on the lock screen and in the notification pull-down. They don't actually bother me too much. But they don't really jack up the price of the hardware that much if you choose to go the other route.

You'll also pay more (or less) depending on how much storage you opt for. Here's the breakdown of the two tablets.

Device With special offers Without special offers Fire HD 8 (16GB) $79 $95 Fire HD 8 (32GB) $109 $124 Fire HD 10 (32GB) $149 $164 Fire HD 10 (64GB) $189 $204

So on the whole, the smaller Fire HD 8 is a little less than half as expensive as the larger Fire HD 10. But you also get more for your money if you get the model with the lower storage, as the price per gigabyte is a bit lower. Couple that with the fact that you can add in a microSD card to extend the storage, and you wouldn't be wrong to go for the lower of the two sizes.

Which one's better to use?

For the most part, using the Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 gives you a relatively similar experience. They both run the same Fire OS operating system (slightly different version numbers, but whatever).

But the Fire HD 10 has better internals. It's got a better processor and more RAM, and it definitely runs things a little more smoothly — though still not anything earth-shattering — than the Fire HD 8. These are still very much mid-range tablets, but the Fire HD 10 won't leave you wondering what's going on behind the scenes as much.

But for me the bigger difference is in the displays.

Sure, we're talking an 8-inch display versus a 10-inch display. But we're also talking differences in resolutions. The Fire HD 8 tops out at 720p, while the Fire HD 10 comes in at 1080p. Along with that higher resolution, the Fire HD 10's display density is about 15 percent greater than the Fire HD 8. And I've found that dark colors are definitely darker on the Fire HD 10. That makes pretty much everything look better. And that's key for the Fire HD 10 because it's ultimately the better device for watching video. And video is a key component of Amazon's strategy these days.

Amazon Fire HD 10 and Fire HD 8

The short, short version

Here's how I'd break it down:

  • If cost is your chief concern, go for the Fire HD 8. It'll serve you well enough.
  • If you're going to be watching a lot of video, get the Fire HD 10. The bigger screen makes a difference, and the higher pixel density does as well.
  • And if you're giving one of these to a kid, make sure to get a case.

Amazon Fire HD 10

If you just want a basic tablet that can do all the things and do them reasonably well, this is the one to get.

Here's all you need to know about Amazon's 2017 Fire HD 10 tablet. It has Alexa built in. It runs all the Android apps Amazon has in its own Appstore. It's got access to Amazon Books and Music and Games and Photos and everything else Amazon has.

And it starts at $150.

That's it. It's a middle-of-the-road, won't-break-the-bank, no-frills tablet.

And it's the only one I'd ever buy for that kind of money.

See at Amazon

Amazon Fire HD 10

OK, OK. There's a little more to this story. Only, not really. Amazon keeps doing what it's been doing with its tablet hardware for some time now. You get something that works, and works surprisingly well, for not a lot of money.

The intent, of course, is to make up the difference buy buying things from Amazon. Preferably, Amazon would tell you, all the things from Amazon. The Fire HD 10 is the upsized gateway, just like the Fire HD 8 is the smaller, even less-expensive model.

Amazon Fire HD 10 (2017) Review

The Fire HD 10 specs are exactly what you'd expect in an Amazon tablet at this point. It gets the job done, it gets it done reasonably well enough, and it doesn't make too much of a fuss about it. There's no talk of cutting-edge processors. No display resolution so dense that it threatens to question reality itself.

  • Display: 10.1-inch IPS LCD (1920x1200 resolution)
  • OS: Amazon Fire OS 5.3.4 (based on Android 5.1)
  • Price: Starts at $149
  • Processor: MediaTek Quad-Core 2 @ 1.8 GHz and 1.4GHz
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Storage: 32GB or 64GB internal, up to 256GB microSD
  • Weight: 17.7 ounces (500 grams)
  • Size: 10.3 x 6.3 x 0.4 inches (262 x 159 x 9.8mm)
  • Wifi: 802.11ac
  • Connector: MicroUSB
  • Cameras: 2MP rear, VGA front
  • Colors: Black, blue, red

Nope, it's just a good, inexpensive tablet, with a whole lot of apps at its disposal, and pretty much the same content (or in some cases even more) than you'll find on the mainstream offerings from Apple and Samsung.

For a lot of folks, that's plenty good enough. For those who don't mind wading into the gray areas of life, it's simple enough to install the Google Play Store and then get access to everything you're used to.

Really, though, this all comes back to the fact that we're looking at a tablet that starts at $150. That's for the version "with special offers," which means ads on the lock screen that while awful on principle really aren't all that bad in actuality. And if you don't want to deal with that sort of thing, it's just an extra $15. And $165 for a 10-inch tablet that can actually play basic games and show shows and do email ain't bad at all.

That bare-bones price is also for the model with just 32GB of storage. You have about 28GB free to do whatever you want with, though, and for a lot of folks that's going to be plenty. And it can be augmented with a microSD card of up to 256GB — and that's just what we call (in technical terms) a butt-ton of storage. There's almost no reason to buy the 64GB model.

Watching video on a 10-inch, 1080p display still isn't my favorite thing to do. That's just 218 pixels per inch. Video is certainly watchable, despite my snobbery. And if you're not used to something with a higher resolution, it'll be just fine for you. And the stereo speakers (they fire downward from the left-side long edge) are decent, but nowhere near what you'd find in, say, an iPad.

Would I want to use this tablet myself? Not if I could get away with spending five times that amount on a nice iPad. But I also wouldn't fault anyone who just wants something basic that works. Because the Fire HD 10 very much fits that bill.

Would I want to hand this tablet over to my kids? Absolutely. I've said in the past that the Fire HD tablet is the best there is for kids — not just because it's inexpensive, but because Amazon has some excellent screen time controls, and you get an email anytime a new app is installed. And this tablet continues that tradition.

And it's worth spending a few extra dollars for a case for this thing. For one, it'll protect your investment. Even though you didn't pay out the arm for the Fire HD 10, you still want your money to go just as far as it possibly can. Amazon's own case isn't inexpensive at $40, but I'm glad I picked it up. In addition to protecting the screen, it does a fine job of proving up the tablet for watching video.

So all told, we're about $210 in for a perfectly capable tablet whose true purpose is to pump Amazon content at you as often and as fast as possible — while also doing other normal tablet things.

The Fire HD 10 isn't the best tablet that's out there. But it's the best one for the price you pay — less than $200 — that you'll find anywhere.

Samsung announces new Galaxy Tab A, available November 1 for $229

An affordable family tablet, just in time for the holidays.

Tablets have lost a lot of traction over the past couple of years, but that's not to say the market for them has totally died out. Samsung is one of the few companies still releasing tablets in 2017, and following the high-end Tab S3 that came out earlier this year, we now have a much more affordable option with the latest entry in the Galaxy Tab A series.

Simply referred to as the Galaxy Tab A (8.0"), Samsung's latest tablet is being targeted at families with kids in search of a big-screen entertainment solution that won't break the bank. The Tab A comes outfitted with an 8-inch 1280 x 800 display with a brightness level of 480-nits. It's surrounded by relatively thick bezels, and near the bottom is a physical home button with two capacitive buttons flanking it.

The Tab A features a metal frame to allow for a more premium feel in the hand, and small touches like USB Type-C and 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded with a microSD card are always great to see with less expensive gadgets.

Other specifications include Qualcomm's Snapdragon 425 processor, 2GB of RAM, 8MP/5MP rear and front-facing cameras, Android 7.1.1 Nougat, and a 5,000 mAh battery that's rated to offer 14 hours of usage.

You'll be able to purchase the Galaxy Tab A in Black and Silver from Samsung.com on November 1 for just $229.99.

The Galaxy Tab S3 is worth buying just for its S Pen

MrMobile goes hands-on with the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL!

When Google dropped its first Pixel smartphone last year, I was not impressed. I dogged it for its lack of waterproofing, its derivative design, and for having a custom launcher when I expected pure stock Android. But then an important thing happened: I used the Pixel. And in short order, its instantaneous responsiveness ruined me for every other Android phone out there.

Yesterday in San Francisco, Google announced a couple successors to those original Pixels. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL correct some of their predecessors' shortcomings … while also introducing a couple more. Join me for the MrMobile hands-on with the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, and stick around till the end for a lingering look at the new PixelBook! And be sure to check out Android Central's detailed dive on the same!

Huawei Mediapad M3 vs. Mediapad M3 Lite: Which should you buy?

A battle between two fantastic Android tablets at different price points.

Huawei's Mediapad M3 and Mediapad M3 Lite are both extremely capable tablets that won't break your budget. How do you pick between two devices that look so similar, though? You let us break it down feature by feature to see M3 is more worth your hard earned money!

Specs comparison

Category Mediapad M3 Lite Mediapad M3 CPU Qualcomm Snapdragon 435, octa-core Kirin 950, octa-core Screen resolution 8-inch 1920x1200 pixels 8.4-inch 2560×1600 pixels RAM 3GB 4GB Memory 16GB 32 GB / 64 GB Battery 4800 mAh 5100 mAh Price $169 $299 / $330 Dimensions 4.8 x 8.4 x 0.30 in 4.8 x 8.5 x .28 in

Same name, different device

The Huawei Mediapad M3 and Mediapad M3 Lite are two vastly different tablets that share a name. They're both 8-inch portrait-oriented tablets (though the Mediapad M3 has a slightly bigger 8.4-inch screen).

It's the actual hardware that makes a serious difference between the Mediapad M3 and the Mediapad M3 Lite. The M3 is in possession of the much more powerful Kirin 950 octa-core processor compared to the M3 Lite's Snapdragon 435 processor. Likewise, the Mediapad M3 has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, which surpasses the 1920 x 1200 resolution of the Mediapad M3 Lite by quite a margin.

The Mediapad M3 also has more storage and RAM than the equivalent models of the Mediapad M3 Lite. And the Mediapad M3 has a slightly larger 5100mAh battery compared to the 4800mAh cell in the M3 Lite.

Now while the Mediapad M3 does have far more power under the hood, it's also the much more expensive tablet at $299 versus the Mediapad M3 Lite's $169 asking price.

Intent matters

Due to the major differences in hardware between these two devices, it's a bit difficult to compare one directly against the other. Instead, what you need to consider it what you plan on using your Huawei Mediapad for.

If you need a device for distracting the kids during car rides, watching your favorite shows, and surfing Facebook, then the Mediapad M3 Lite is definitely the one to pick. It doesn't have the better specs overall, but it is more than capable of getting the job done.

In comparison, the Mediapad M3 is capable of doing far more than letting you catch up on binge watching. It's got a huge battery, a solid processor, making it great for everything from checking documents in Google Drive to conducting live chats with friends on Hangouts. With its fantastic screen and great speakers, the Mediapad M3 can really act as a replacement for your Laptop in most cases.

The Mediapad M3 is the better tablet!

By every possible marker, the Mediapad M3 comes out ahead of the Mediapad M3 Lite. This isn't surprising, as it is the higher end Mediapad from Huawei, but Huawei has gone above and beyond to pack it to the brim with fantastic features for you to take advantage of. While it is a bit pricey compared to the Mediapad M3 Lite, it's well worth it for the increase in screen quality, battery, processor, and speakers.

One thing to keep in mind, though, is that the Mediapad M3 shipped with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and still hasn't been updated to Android 7.0 Nougat in most regions of the world. The Mediapad M3 Lite, though, shipped with Nougat since it is a newer product.

Essentially in every other metric that counts, the Mediapad M3 excels, delivering a device that really does go above and beyond.

Huawei Mediapad M3 Lite vs. Huawei Mediapad T3: Which should you buy?

The M3 Lite is the superior tablet, but not by much.

When it comes to size, dimensions, and even battery capacity, the Huawei Mediapad M3 Lite and Mediapad T3 are quite similar. But there are some differences we want to highlight, and help you decide which one to buy if you're looking for an inexpensive Android tablet!

Both models come in affordable 8-inch and 10-inch models — the former in a portrait orientation and the latter in landscape. We've compared these two tablets in both sizes, and the M3 comes out on top thanks to its additional features. Check out all the details on how we made our decision below!

8-inch Mediapad M3 Lite vs. Mediapad T3 specs comparison

Category Mediapad M3 Lite Mediapad T3 CPU Qualcomm Snapdragon 435, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425, quad-core Screen resolution 1920x1200 pixels 1280×800 pixels RAM 3GB / 4GB 2GB / 3GB Memory 16GB / 32GB / 64GB 16 GB / 32 GB Camera 8MP front, 8MP rear 2MP front, 5MP rear Battery 4800 mAh 4800 mAh Price $169 $119 Dimensions 8.40 x 4.85 x 0.30 in 8.31 x 4.91 x 0.31 in Weight 310 grams 350 grams

Where they're the same

Both the Huawei Mediapas M3 Lite and the Mediapad T3 are pretty solid devices, and while they are definitely more different than the same, they do share a few aesthetic qualities. For the 8-inch version, from the outside, these two tablets look strikingly similar.

They also both share a hefty 4800 mAh battery. This is a battery that will easily keep you going through a few days of use and means you'll have plenty of time between charges for gaming, or watching your favorite shows on Netflix.

How they're different

While these two tablets certainly look alike, they differ under the hood. The Mediapad M3 Lite just manages to pull ahead by virtue of solid features that outstrip the Mediapad T3 little by little.

The Mediapad M3 Lite has the better screen resolution at 1920x1200 pixels compared to the Mediapad T3's less dense 1280x720 pixels. The Mediapad M3 Lite is available in 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB sizes, while the Mediapad T3 is only available in 16GB and 32GB. The Mediapad M3 also wins out with an octa-core Snapdragon 435 processor against the Mediapad T3's Snapdragon 425 quad-core, and the Mediapad M3 also has more RAM in every size.

None of these differences are major on their own, but with so many features in the Mediapad M3's favor, it's hard to argue that it isn't the superior device. Especially when you consider that the Mediapad M3 Lite is available for $169 which is only $50 dollars more than the Mediapad T3's $119 price tag.

Size makes a difference

While the 8-inch version of the Mediapad M3 Lite and the Mediapad T3 are very similar in a few aspects, that starts to change with the 10-inch version. Not in terms of design, where they still share a similar look, but from dimensions to the battery, they are quite different.

The Mediapad M3 Lite comes out ahead in every category. It's a tiny bit larger, has the superior screen resolution, rocks more RAM at every level, and is available in 64GB. The biggest difference is the battery that the Mediapad M3 Lite is using, it's packing a 6660mAh battery that will keep you going from the beach on vacation all the way home.

Of course, the bigger battery and larger size do come with a price jump. The Mediapad M3 Lite is available for $219, which is a $50 price bump from the smaller size. The T3 also jumps up to $159, which is a $40 bump in price.

Once again, the Mediapad M3 Lite manages to win out by virtue of the features it packs under the hood. The massive battery on top of a great processor and larger screen with a better resolution lets it whomp the Mediapad T3, even though it's the pricier of the two.

Let's talk about Blueborne, the latest Bluetooth vulnerability

Let's talk about Blueborne, the latest Bluetooth vulnerability

Because you need to know what's up and what to do about it.

We got to see something cool and terrible (yes, it's possible to be both at the same time) earlier this week when Armis Security published the details of a new Bluetooth exploit. Called "Blueborne," the exploit allows a person with the right tools and who is within Bluetooth range of your smart thing — laptop, phone, car, or anything else that runs Android (as well as most every other operating systems, including iOS and Windows) — to gain control over the device without any action from the user.

That's because the exploit cleverly attacks portions of the software needed to establish a connection to hijack the Bluetooth stack itself, which is pretty much done in a universal way because of how complicated Bluetooth is and how the stack itself handles so many things the OS could be doing instead.

Interested yet? If not, you should be.

Before we go any further, here is the good(ish) news: Apple, Google, and Microsoft have all patched the exploit. On the Android side, we saw the fix in this month's security patch released the same day the vulnerability was made public. This surely isn't a coincidence and kudos to Armis for working with the companies who write the software we all use every day to get this fixed. Of course, almost every Android-powered device doesn't yet have this patch and won't for a while.

I'll resist the temptation to make this all about Android's update woes and the million-and-one different reasons that it happens. I'll just say that if you value being protected against most vulnerabilities like this you currently have three options: an Android-powered device from BlackBerry, an Android-powered device direct from Google, or an iPhone. You decide what to do here.

Instead let's talk about what Blueborne is and how it does it, as well as what you can do about it.

What is Blueborne?

It's a series of simple attacks on various parts of the Bluetooth stack running on almost every smart device in the world. Including 2 billion Android phones. It's not a MiTM (Man in The Middle) attack, where someone intercepts Bluetooth traffic between you and a thing you're connected to. Instead, it's posed as a device that wants to discover and connect over Bluetooth but the exploit happens before the connection attempt gets to a stage where a user needs to act.

For people into this sort of thing, the short version of how the exploit works on Android is that the attacker sends out a discovery query, then manipulates both the timestamp and size of a second discovery query for a separate service to the same machine. This causes a buffer underflow and bypasses the standard Bluetooth Security Management Protocols to hit the failsafe "just works" connection. While it sounds crazy that this works, it's better than the default BlueZ stack version of the exploit which is a straight-up buffer overflow that bypasses every connection check. I'm not familiar enough with Windows or iOS to parse the exploit code for those operating systems, but if you are hit the link in the opening paragraph and check it out. Then hit the comments and help us all understand better.

If you're not into looking through code (it's a special sort of illness, I do admit) the short short version is that a person with a computer that has a Bluetooth connection can type a few lines in a terminal and connect to your phone. How easy it is for him or her to connect is ridiculous (we'll talk about why that is later) and anyone with even just a passing knowledge of this sort of thing can do it. That's why it was important that Armis hold the release until Apple, Google, and Microsoft were able to act.

The scary part is what happens after the connection is made. There is no secret magic app that roots your phone and hacks all your data. It's too easy to prevent any process from getting that level of control, and permissions prevent it from happening unless a process does have that level of access. Instead, an attacker can act as the logged in user. That's you.

With 8 billion devices that need to connect, Bluetooth is a big target for people who want to steal data.

In the example video above we see the attacker establishing a Bluetooth mouse connection to a sleeping Pixel, then doing the same things you could do if you were holding it in your hands. Apps can be started, pictures, video, and audio can be recorded, and your files can be downloaded directly to the attacker's computer. there is nothing on your phone to say "Stop, this is not cool" because it is cool — it's acting as you. And none of your data is safe. If the attacker is unable to access a sandboxed directory, he or she can simply open the associated app and pull images of what's on the screen while it is running.

The frustrating part of all this is why it works. I'm not talking about how the stack is exploited and someone crashes their way in, I mean why in the broader sense. Why something this preventable was able to slip past the experts who oversee security and are really good at writing this sort of thing out of the operating system. And the answer is that it happened because Bluetooth is a giant, complicated mess.

It's not the Bluetooth SIG's (Special Interest Group) fault, even if it is their responsibility to ultimately address this. Bluetooth started out in 1998 as a simple short-range wireless connection. It's now on more than 8 billion devices worldwide and has grown and grown in features and complexity. And it has to be backward compatible, so portions of it have to be left as-is when it comes to things like advanced connection security standards. If an encrypted paired-key connection can't be established, it has to be able to try something less secure and keep trying until it connects, runs out of ways to try, or the security management features tell it to stop. Exploit the SMP layer and you're in. And as new features get added to newer versions, it only gets worse.

There are exploits in proprietary software, too. We just don't know about them until it's too late.

The people writing an operating system and the security team whose job it is to break it will all take their share of the responsibility here, too. The problem here is that they're dealing with impossibly complex code in the Bluetooth stack and while they are busy trying to patch it against one thing other things could also be exploited. Google did change a good bit of the "default" Bluetooth implementation for Linux, as did Apple and Microsoft. The things you use are well-protected against things like a man in the middle attack or a way to get admin permission over Bluetooth. That's because those have traditionally been the way Bluetooth was exploited, and there is always plenty of work to do prevent it from happening.

Finally, this is a great example of why open-source code is great. The researchers at Armis were able to find this exploit, see exactly how it works and determine exactly how to patch it because they have access to the code itself. While Apple and Microsoft don't use a fully open source Bluetooth stack, they knew exactly where to look to patch their version. If every company involved used closed proprietary code this exploit would still exist, but we wouldn't know about it until it was too late and other folks knew about it, too.

What should you do about it?

Every person reading this probably has one or more Bluetooth devices. Your watch, your phone, your laptop, your TV, and the list could go on and on; Bluetooth is everywhere and on almost everything. That means you're likely to have Bluetooth enabled on your phone, and that's all it takes to be vulnerable to this if your phone is still unpatched.

The saving grace here is that Bluetooth is a short-range connection standard. Bluetooth 5 is working on extending the range, but you're pretty much confined to about 30 feet before the signal gets bad. That means you're really only at risk when you're within 30 feet of the person trying to get into your phone.

Bluetooth's short range means an attacker has to be near you to use the Blueborne exploit.

And the way this exploit works is scary, but it also means you're probably going to notice it. If your phone is sleeping and locked, an attacker can still connect. But as soon as they attempt to access your stuff or get tricky and try to take control, the screen would light up and they would need to unlock the phone. For now, at least. Don't think for a minute that people aren't working on a way around this because they are. And they will find it.

I'm not going to suggest you stop using your smartwatch or your favorite Bluetooth headset and shut down Bluetooth permanently. But there are a few things we can do to make it harder for someone to get in through Bluetooth while we're waiting for a patch. And again — if your phone has the September 2017 security patch, you're protected.

  • Shut Bluetooth off when you're not using it. You're probably safe at home or at work, but if you get into the habit of turning Bluetooth off when you don't need it you won't forget the next time you go to Starbucks. There is no way for an attacker to turn Bluetooth on. At least not yet.
  • Make sure you have a secure lock screen. Dead stop. If you don't already have a password, PIN, pattern, fingerprints or anything else set up so your phone is locked until you unlock it yourself, go do it now.
  • Turn off trusted devices while you're at it. Tapping in a 4-digit PIN or scanning your eyeballs is way more convenient than getting new credit cards and talking to your bank, even once. Trust me, I've been there. (Thanks, Target. Idiots, I swear.)
  • Don't leave your phone unattended. Put it in your pocket or purse and take it with you even if you're only stepping away for a minute or two.
  • If you see the screen turn on, look and see why. This is the biggest "flaw" in the exploit; it will turn your screen on if someone tries to do anything after they are connected.
  • Ask the company you gave money to when you bought your phone when you should expect an update to fix this. Asking nicely lets it know that you care about it, and when enough people show they care a company will decide to care. The patch is available to every phone running Android 4.4 and higher.

There probably isn't an army of people armed with laptops and Mountain Dew patrolling the streets, ready to hack "all the phones" through Bluetooth. But there could be that one guy, and he could be at McDonald's or the library or anywhere else. In cases like this, it's always better to be safe because the things we can do are pretty easy.

Your stuff is worth it.

Huawei has four new inexpensive MediaPad tablets coming to the U.S.

Huawei is launching new MediaPads in the U.S. beginning at the end of August.

Besides its Mate flagships and Honor-branded smartphones, Huawei also makes the MediaPad line of tablets. Now, in the days before IFA, Huawei has announced four new tablets coming to the U.S. in September.

The Huawei MediaPad T3 8-inch and 10-inch and M3 Lite 8-inch and 10-inch tablets are now available for purchase from Amazon. The tablets feature entry-level specs, but they'll pack more than enough power for consuming media.

The T3 tablets include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, 1200x800 displays, 16GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD) and 2GB of RAM, Android 7.0 with EMUI 5.1 on top, and a 5MP rear camera and 2MP front camera. The only difference between the two T3 tablets are the screen size and price: the 8-inch and 10-inch T3's both include a non-removable 4,800 mAh power pack.

Lenovo Tab 4 10 review: A cord-cutter's dream tablet

21

Lenovo Tab 4 10 review: A cord-cutter's dream tablet

The Lenovo Tab 4 10 is a great, affordable companion for any cord cutter in 2017.

The quick take

Lenovo latest 10-inch tablet isn't the most powerful workhorse, but then again it was surely never designed to be a device for everything. With modest specs and a budget price, this is a tablet for anyone looking for a reliable second screen to use around the home for streaming music and video, browsing the internet, cooking instructions in the kitchen, or sheet music when learning to play an instrument.

The Good

  • Great build quality
  • Perfect for streaming
  • Lenovo Performance Mode is fantastic
  • Great battery life
  • Loud Dolby Atmos speakers
  • Mostly stock Android experience

The Bad

  • Cameras are a total afterthought
  • Screen is a fingerprint magnet
  • Hard to use in direct sunlight
  • System takes up nearly half of the 16GB storage

Tech Specs

Category Lenovo Tab 4 10 Operating System Android 7.1 Nougat Display 10.1-inch LCD IPS Multitouch, 1280x800 Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 (1.4GHz, quad-core) Storage 16GB Expandable microSD up to 256GB RAM 2GB Rear Camera 5MP w/ autofocus Front Camera 2MP w/ autofocus Connectivity Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS Charging Micro-USB Battery 7000mAh non-removable 2 Cell Li-Polymer Dimensions 247 x 170 x 8.5 mm Weight 503g

The things you'll love

The Lenovo Tab 4 10 features a (you guessed it) 10-inch screen with a 1280x800 resolution and is powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor and 2GB of RAM. With those specs, you're definitely going to notice a significant slowdown if you try to play any particularly resource-heavy games, but overall it feels capable of handling anything you throw at it — especially video streaming — with ease.

The Lenovo Tab 4 10 is lightweight without feeling cheap.

While the Tab 4 lacks the premium design materials like a glass back and aluminum frame, it doesn't feel cheap, either. I personally prefer a non-glass back design for my devices, so I appreciated the Slate Black model's subtle texture on the back. The power and volume buttons are perfectly placed on the left side of the device, so you won't accidentally press them when you're just kicking back watching your favorite shows, yet accessible when needed. Overall, the Lenovo Tab 4 10 is lightweight without feeling cheap — while I was fortunate to avoid dropping my unit during the review period, I always felt confident that it would survive without barely a blemish had it.

I've found the battery life to be outstanding. Lenovo says you can expect up to 20 hours of usage on a fully charged battery, and in my experience that even seems like a conservative estimate based on heavy usage.

In terms of software, you get a mostly stock Android experience here running Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box. However, one of my favorite features using the Tab 4 10 is Lenovo's Productivity interface. Designed to be used with an optional Bluetooth keyboard attachment to convert the tablet into a makeshift laptop for added productivity, I enjoyed using it all the same without the keyboard, as it moves the on-screen Android navigations within reach of my left thumb while also adding a task bar for conveniently switching between apps as you would on a PC. I spend most of my review time using the Productivity mode because it's just a smartly-designed interface. There's also a Kids Mode, too, making this a great option for families.

I predominantly used the Lenovo Tab 4 10 for media streaming from Netflix, Plex, and DAZN with nary a hiccup, and the built-in Dolby Atmos speakers had me ignoring the Bluetooth speaker I'd typically use. As a hardened cord cutter, the Tab 4 served all my needs very well.

The things you'll hate

Firstly, the screen is an absolute fingerprint magnet, so you'll definitely want to keep the included screen cleaning cloth nearby at all times. It also doesn't fare too well near direct sunlight, so I'd say this is definitely a tablet to be used in and around the home and less so for commuting. There's a model that includes 4G connectivity with a SIM-card slot alongside the microSD slot, but honestly, I wouldn't spend more money when you're only going to want to use this thing wherever Wi-Fi is probably available.

You'll probably want to buy a microSD card for this thing as you only have about 8GB space out of the box.

The 16GB of internal storage is a tad underwhelming, as nearly half of that space is dedicated to the OS system files, making the option for expandable memory almost a prerequisite. Some users have had issues mounting a microSD card, but I did not have such problems.

As mentioned above, the specs are a little weak if you were hoping to do some serious gaming. Playing Madden Mobile was fine but noticeably sluggish at times. Temper your expectations or look elsewhere if top-end gaming is what you're after.

Lenovo included both front- and rear-facing cameras because I suppose they had to, but a 2MP and 5MP respectively, it's not even worth opening the camera app.

Should you get it? If you're a cord cutter, yes

If you've cut cable out of your life and are simply looking for a tablet for streaming Netflix, Hulu, and the rest around the house, the Lenovo Tab 4 10 will serve your needs wonderfully. You're unlikely to find a better Android tablet for under $200 that offers such a clean and focused design and user interface.

AT&T's new Primetime tablet is a perfect match for DIRECTV

AT&T's new Primetime tablet is a perfect match for DIRECTV

AT&T has announced a new tablet that plugs into its DIRECTV service.

Cellular-connected tablets have been around since the first iPad, letting users connect to the Internet even when they're not around Wi-Fi. This was typically associated with light web browsing, as streaming video over a cellular connection is a fast way to burn through a data cap. As more carriers have brought back unlimited plans and zero rating for certain services, the ability to use a tablet as an on the go streaming device has become easier than ever.

To that end, AT&T has announced a first party tablet centered around content consumption. The AT&T Primetime Tablet is designed specifically for DIRECTV subscribers.

As for specifications, the tablet has a 10-inch 1080p display and a 9,070 mAh battery. It runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat, which is great for multi-tasking, and has a Snapdragon 625 and 2GB of RAM, along with 32GB of internal storage. The tablet will use a custom home screen with gestures for quickly accessing DIRECTV when you just need to watch TV right this second. The spec sheet mentions users will be able to stream to two separate Bluetooth headsets of speakers, which is a very neat feature (but not part of the Bluetooth 5.0 spec) The device also features dual front-facing speakers with Dolby Atmos and 4 audio presets, along with 5MP front and rear cameras.

Existing AT&T Unlimited Plus or Unlimited Choice customers can add the Primetime tablet to their existing plans for an additional $10 per month for 20 months. The device can also be purchased on its own for $29.99 total with a 2-year contract. The Primetime Tablet will be available on AT&T's online store on in physical retail stores beginning August 25.

See at AT&T

Which unlimited plan should you buy?

Update: An earlier version of this story said that the Primetime tablet required a DIRECTV subscription to purchase, which is not true. Customers can buy the tablet directly from AT&T for $200 outright or 20 payments of $10 per month.

Google says Oreo will roll out to some partner devices by the end of the year

Google says Oreo will roll out to some partner devices by the end of the year

Google has been working with its partners to get the Oreo update out by the end of the year.

While Google's first party devices get new Android releases immediately, the same can't be said for partner devices. Since these devices comprise the vast majority of Android devices, we run into situations like Nougat only being available on 13% of all Android devices a year after release.

But there may be cause for hope: tucked in the Android Oreo announcement post was this quote:

We've also been working closely with our partners, and by the end of this year, hardware makers including Essential, General Mobile, HMD Global Home of Nokia Phones, Huawei, HTC, Kyocera, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sharp and Sony are scheduled to launch or upgrade devices to Android 8.0 Oreo.

Google has made vague promises like this before, but the fact that the company is naming specific partners is new. Google caveats that by stating the partners may be launching new devices with Oreo, not necessarily upgrading existing devices. We may see the LG V30 and Sony Xperia XZ1 launch with Oreo, but the rest of the devices are expected to be upgrades. Samsung is also expected to announce the Note 8 this week, but that will likely launch with Nougat. Time will tell if the partner companies make good on their word.

Android 8.0 Oreo system images available, update rolling to Developer Preview users

Google has uploaded the Android 8.0 Oreo system images.

For those that want to be on the bleeding edge, the Android 8.0 Oreo system images are now available. Google has the images for last year's Pixel phones, the Nexus 6P and 5X, the Nexus Player and the Pixel C. Manually updating a device requires a few tools and a bit of time, but it's an easy process overall. There are carrier-specific images for the Pixel phones, so make sure you download the right one for your device.

For users that were on the Developer Preview, you should be receiving two Over the Air (OTA) updates to the stable version of Oreo. Depending on the device and version of the developer preview you're on, the first file should only be between 12MB and 50MB. The secondary update file clocks in at 900MB, so you'll want to be on WiFi for that one.
