Apple unveils ‘the best tablet in the world': Meet the iPad Air 2

Apple’s iPad event is well underway and the company has just announced its next-generation flagship tablet, the iPad Air 2. As you might expect, the new device is the thinnest iPad Air yet released and measures in at 6.1 millimeters thin, or 18% thinner than the original iPad Air. The new tablet will also be the first device to run on the A8x, a new chipset with 3 billion transistors that will deliver an even better performance than the A8 chip found on the iPhone 6. The device also boasts 10 hours of battery life and features an M8 chip with support for a barometer and motion tracking sensors.

Nexus 9 Specs Benchmark

New benchmark suggests the Nexus 9 is almost as powerful as a 2012 Mac Pro

New benchmark suggests the Nexus 9 is almost as powerful as a 2012 Mac Pro

Not only does the new Nexus 9 tablet look terrific but it also apparently performs terrifically as well. Geekbench developer and Primate Labs founder John Poole has just posted the Geekbench results for the Nexus 9 and the results are positively incredible for an Android tablet. The new device’s single-core score on Geekbench totals 1903, which Poole notes is only slightly less than what “an entry-level Mac Pro (2012) scores” at 1925. Poole also says that such a single-core score for a Nexus tablet is flat-out “insane.” More →

NYT: iPad Pro ‘not yet finished,’ not even considered ‘official’ at Apple

For most of the year, reports detailing a bigger 12.9-inch iPad, often referred to as the “iPad Pro,” offered contradicting views on Apple’s tablet plans. Some said Apple is indeed working on a bigger tablet, but others said the project has been shelved. While more and more reports have recently suggested that the iPad Pro will make its debut next year, The New York Times has learned the product isn’t even considered official within Apple yet.

Leak: Is this our first look at the brand new iPad Air 2?

Apple’s huge iPhone 6 and iWatch unveiling last month was probably the most hyped event Apple has ever hosted. The leaks and rumors leading up to Apple’s September press conference were off the charts, the social media chatter on launch day was crazy, and it ended up being BGR’s single biggest day of traffic ever by a shockingly wide margin. Everyone wanted to see Apple’s new iPhones (despite the fact that we had already seen them dozens of times in leaks) and find out when they would finally launch.

Fast-forward Thursday, just one month later, and the lead up to Apple’s big iPad and Mac event seems eerily quiet. Does anyone care about tablets and computers anymore? More →
