Samsung will reportedly launch a crazy foldable tablet next year

Apparently Samsung is planning to release its first-ever foldable tablet in 2015, which would be the first commercial release of a technology that Samsung has been toying around with for a while now.

The single biggest thing Microsoft needs to fix with the next Surface Pro

Microsoft has been pitching its Surface Pro 3 as “the first tablet that can replace your laptop” and early reviews of the device have generally been very positive about how well the device works both as a laptop and a tablet. However, Business Insider’s review of the Surface Pro 3 makes clear that Microsoft still has some work to do with the device’s kickstand setup to truly make it as comfortable to hold in your lap as a MacBook Air or an Windows ultrabook.

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 4K Display

This is Samsung’s next trick for its Android tablets

This is Samsung’s next trick for its Android tablets

Samsung is apparently already working on Android tablets with 4K resolution, TechRadar reveals, after having seen one such prototype in France during an LTE broadcast demonstration at the French Open at Roland Garros. The device used is apparently a “reference device for operators to perform tests with,” although the tablet came with clear Samsung branding and design, including Samsung’s “physical home key below the 12-inch UltraHD display.” From the looks of it, the tablet seems similar to Samsung’s current 12.2-inch Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and Tab Pro 12.2 models.

Equipped with the new Surface Pen, a fully adjustable kickstand, a lineup of keyboards, a USB port and the ability to run Microsoft Office, the Surface Pro 3 could be the first Microsoft tablet to make a splash… no matter how light it is.

Asus still wants to marry Android to Windows

Asus still wants to marry Android to Windows

Remember the Asus Transformer Book Duet? Asus imagined a dual-booting Android/Windows tablet/laptop that would offer users four independent modes, and switch between the two operating systems in just four seconds, and demoed the concept at CES 2014. However, following pressure from both Google and Windows, the device never saw the light of day. Both companies reportedly insisted that their partners do not release such dual-booting devices, but it looks like Asus is not ready to give up. More →

WWDC 2014 iOS 8

WWDC 2014 just got even more boring – iOS 8′s split-screen multitasking isn’t ready to demo yet

WWDC 2014 just got even more boring – iOS 8′s split-screen multitasking isn’t ready to demo yet

Microsoft can keep making fun of the iPad for not letting you multitask for a little while longer. The New York Times’ Brian X. Chen writes on Twitter that he’s been told “that the split-screen feature for iOS 8 isn’t ready yet and won’t be shown at WWDC.” Split-screen multitasking is one of the most anticipated features coming to iOS 8 and it’s something iPad users have wanted to have for a while now. Chen says that the new feature is still “a work in progress” at this point and we can only hope that it will be ready for whenever iOS 8 actually comes out, which will likely be in the fall with the launch of the iPhone 6. No matter how you slice it, however, this doesn’t seem to be a very exciting WWDC as far as new products are concerned and at this point we’re hoping iOS 8 has some added surprises for us that we haven’t yet heard about.
