Apparently, Sony is not done with tablets

It’s been almost three years since Sony launched its last Android tablet, the Xperia Z4 Tablet, but that’s not surprising considering how much of the market share slates lost in the last couple of years.

New Apple iPad models appear in regulatory filings suggesting two new tablets are incoming?

Two new Apple iPad models, “A1893” and “A1954,” were approved by the Eurasian Economic Commission. The regulatory agency has oversight in countries like Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. The two model numbers do not correspond with any previously released iPad tablet.
