If you’re looking for a cheap tablet and you’re located in the United States, then you’re in luck. Lenovo has just unleashed two new Tab 4 tablets (not to be confused with Samsung’s Galaxy Tab slates, mind you).

Aside from the two Tab 4 slates that were launched in the US back in June, Lenovo released two additional models that are upgraded versions of the Tab 4 8 and Tab 4 10.

Both Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus and Tab 4 10 Plus are available for purchase in the US via major retailers like Amazon and B&H. The cheapest of the two, Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus, costs $229.99 and comes with an 8-inch …

Huawei continues to take advantage of its previous flagship by launching new smartphones derivative of the P9, its dual-camera high-end device that made its debut on the market last year.

Sailfish OS for Sony Xperia X officially launched, but you'll have to pay for it

Sailfish OS did not have too much success in the smartphone industry. After a few failed partnerships with Intex, Fairphone, and TRI, the Finnish company is now trying a different approach.

Apparently, Sony Mobile allowed Jolla, the company behind Sailfish OS to optimize the platform for its Xperia X smartphones. Today, Jolla announced that its new Sailfish X operating system for Sony Xperia X has gone gold and will soon be available for purchase.

Yes, you read that right. Jolla will sell the Sailfish X to everyone who wants to install it on the Sony Xperia …

A new, affordable tablet is expected to be unveiled by Samsung in the coming weeks. The Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) leaked a few times in the past, but the South Korean company is still mum on the launch of the slate.

Today, we’ve learned another tiny detail about the upcoming tablet. It appears that Samsung has had a change of heart and decided to launch the tablet under the different name.

It looks like that tablet is currently referred to as the Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 S, which is a bit more confusing than the previous name. The model number (SM-T380 / SM-T385) remains the same, and …
