Just this weekend we uncovered news of an upcoming duo of tablets coming soon that will feature the newer Mediatek 8183 processor. The duo will both be using the baseboard ‘Flapjack’ and look to be arriving with both an 8-inch and 10-inch version. And while I’m pretty excited about a couple smaller tablet options with […]
Chrome OS Tablet
It’s really difficult to say when, or even if, Chrome OS tablets will ever take a firm grasp in the consumer market but that hasn’t stopped OEMs from pushing forward in developing the recent form-factor of our favorite operating system. For education and casual use, the RockChip-powered 10.1″ tablets from Acer, ASUS and now CTL […]
We don’t get the opportunity to do versus videos as often as I’d like, but we’re ready to try and change that in the coming months. The truth is, with review units it is pretty difficult to catch two interesting devices in the office at the same time. Right now we have quite a few […]
Business Insider reported a few days ago that Google has internally communicated to employees in its laptop and tablet division to find new jobs within the company. Since the Pixelbook, supposed Pixelbook 2, and Pixel Slate are the only current laptop and tablet devices Google makes, this move (if it is actually happening) could easily […]
We haven’t spoken much about ‘Cheza’ and Qualcomm-powered Chromebooks in quite a while around here. To be honest, I fully expected to see something from this entire effort at CES or at MWC last week, but we’re still waiting to actually see something emerge from Qualcomm or any other manufacturer.
It is no secret that one of the big struggles right now for Chrome OS, Chromebooks, detachables, and tablets is overview and split-screen mode. While the majority of the OS can run smooth on various chipsets, we see severely crippled performance across the board when it comes to both the overview mode and split-screen views. […]
We’ve talked quite a bit about the slightly-mysterious ‘Sarien’ in the past week. From its emergence as a new flagship Chrome OS device to the fact that it looks to be made by Dell, ‘Sarien’ is starting to add up to a very intriguing option in the high-end Chromebook space.
We just uncovered a new flagship Chromebook in ‘Sarien’ yesterday and this device already has some head-scratching development happening over at the Chromium Repositories. As we continue sorting through it, we’ll obviously continue sharing our findings, but one thing that is pretty straightforward is a line of commits that point directly to not only a […]
CTL CEO Erik Stromquist was right in the thick of things in Las Vegas last week but the Oregon-based Chromebook maker’s leader wasn’t there to debut a new device. CTL’s new found partnership with Sprint and their deep ties with Google were reason enough to make the trip to CES. Instead, CTL is looking to […]
As we anticipated, ASUS has launched a new Chromebook lineup just days before CES 2019 in Las Vegas. While there isn’t a true flagship in the mix, the rumored Chrome OS tablet from ASUS is and it joins three new Gemini Lake Chromebooks (the first to market) to round off their latest educational offerings
If you’ve used a Chrome OS tablet like the new Pixel Slate, Chromebook Tab 10, or the HP Chromebook x2, you may have come across an odd and annoying trait they all seem to share: jank and lag. While not surprising on the under-powered Acer Chromebook Tab 10 and it’s Rockchip OP1 processor, this behavior […]
Chrome OS tablets are still a pretty new thing here at the end of 2018. After all, we didn’t see the first true Chrome OS tablet until the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 hit the scene in the early parts of summer. Six months is hardly enough time for a new form factor to fully emerge […]
