6 ways the iPad Pro refresh makes Apple’s tablet exciting again

The iPad Pro has long been an impressive device (even if you weren’t so hot on that whole “what’s a computer” bit), but if we’re being frank, it had gotten kind of boring. The past few years brought new features and new peripherals like the Apple Pencil, but on the whole it felt little different from the device Steve Jobs showed us in 2010. That changes today. Apple’s latest iPad Pro retains the feel of the world’s most popular tablet…

iPad Pro Hands-on: The first Apple tablet that actually feels new

Apple on Tuesday revealed the new iPad Pro, and after the presentation, I got to see the new device up close. Without the Apple logo on the back, the new iPad Pro might be mistaken for a really good iPad competitor. Maybe a Chrome tablet or a Galaxy Tab S. But definitely not an iPad and possibly not even an Apple product. Even when I picked it up, it still didn’t seem quite as familiar as the iPad. Yes, it’s…

Samsung Galaxy Book 2 tablet hands-on: Performance takes a back seat to battery life

After spending an intensive few days with Samsung’s Galaxy Book 2, we can see that it follows in the footsteps of the first-generation Galaxy Book that shipped last year by aiming to be a good value. It’s still a traditional Windows 2-in-1 tablet built around Samsung’s terrific AMOLED displays and rich sound, with LTE capability, a pen and keyboard, sold for a reasonable $999Remove non-product link. But the Galaxy Book 2 has also made some fundamental changes. Lured by Qualcomm’s promises of all-day…

Microsoft Surface Pro 6 review: Microsoft adds quad-core power to its tried-and-true tablet

Our review of Microsoft’s Surface Pro 6 focuses even more than usual on the differences between this new generation and its predecessor, the Surface Pro (2017), because they seem nearly identical—at least on the, er, surface. Visually, you’d be hard-pressed to differentiate the Surface Pro 6, the Surface Pro (2017), or the Surface Pro 4.

Google Pixel Slate hands on: This is what the next generation of Android tablets feels like

Three years after Google released its first Pixel-branded Android tablet, it’s back with another one. This time it’s called the Pixel Slate, but it doesn’t run Android 9 Pie. It runs Chrome OS.
