Lenovo has announced a wide range of new tablets and hybrid hardware, all running either Android or Windows 8.1.Follow the links below for a detailed overview of Lenovo’s latest device announcements, all of which fall into its Yoga range of versatile hardware.The standout feature of Lenovo’s Yoga Ultrabooks has always been the clever hinge, which allows the screen to be folded over to create a tent-like stand, rotated around to keep the keyboard out of the way, or laid flat for a tablet-like experience.For the Yoga 3 Pro, Lenovo has redesigned the hinge, likening it to a metal watch band, and building it from 800 pieces of steel and aluminum.Storage is managed by a 256GB SSD, plus there is a 4-in-1 card reader on the 12.8mm chassis.It’s joined by two USB 3.0 sockets, and a Micro HDMI port.
Its screen murskalta nuts, it will be dropped many times on a stone floor and it kicked like a football.This is a Reddit-the site loaded a bit scruffy video from your smartphone, which seems clear enough that the duration of the test, that it normal in life that I never had.it Seems that this phone could, say, nailed four-inch wire nailed to the wall.Phone brand or model are not clear, but the video title says it is a Nokia phone.the Video, however, shows that this is largely a Nokia-like Android device.Part of comment has been written, so to speak, tongue-in-cheek.
Everything you need to know about the HTC 11The HTC 11 is almost certainly less than a year away, so here s what we know about the HTC 11 release date, specs, and price, plus all the latest news and rumours.Update: 11 December 2016 : A new leak has seemingly revealed most of the HTC 11's hardware, and even the phone's new design.We loved the iconic design, slick Android skin and great audio quality, and were sold on the great selfie camera and fast charging.Read on for all the latest news, rumours and speculation on the HTC 11, HTC s flagship smartphone for 2017.Still, there s a chance HTC could use MWC to announce the phone next year – it kicks off on February 27, which would be great timing for a HTC 11 launch.
Now, watch faces will display notifications and information from any Android Wear app, much like Apple Watch s own watchface complications.That certainly helps if you want a watch that s basically an at-a-glance notifications ticker on your arm.That s why it s developing three new ways for messaging on Android Wear: smart replies, handwriting, and a swipe keyboard.A 1.5-inch display is still far from any kind of display I d want to try to communicate on for than five seconds, but at least Google is experimenting.On the fitness front, Android Wear 2.0 takes the personal coach approach.Google-powered smartwatches will soon come armed with automatic activity recognition—a feature long present on Fitbit wearables—and will funnel health information with the Google Fit API.
A video has turned up that shows the Nexus 5x smartphone that normally runs Android running the Windows 10 Mobile operating system.All of the text is in what appears to be Chinese writing on the video so most of us can't understand what is being said.We also can't read much in the way of what the icons and settings menus seen.Whoever made the video doesn t offer any detail on what exactly it took to get Windows 10 installed and running on the Nexus 5x hardware.One big feature missing is a memory card slot.Power comes from a 2700 mAh internal battery good for ten hours of surfing the web on LTE connections.
In case you forgot to mark the date or got distracted by Google's huge keynote today, here's a friendly reminder: the HTC 10 is now available from T-Mobile, right on time.As previously promised, the Uncarrier has a couple of gifts for those who grab one of the new HTC handsets…assuming you do so by May 24 and that supplies don't run out first.Those who grab the HTC 10 from T-Mobile before the aforementioned date will get an HTC Ice View case and an HTC Rapid Charger for free, whereas buying them separately would be $85.Those who get the handset on T-Mobile s monthly device plan will pay $28.34/month for 24 months, as well, on top of a $20 SIM starter kit fee.The handset features a 5.2-inch 2560 x 1440 display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and the option of expanding the storage up to a huge 2TB.Battery life is substantial at up to 30.4 hours of talk time and nearly 21 days of standby time.
The upcoming Android N release will allow Android to run natively within cars, letting Google put much deeper hooks into the cars it runs on, the company announced Wednesday at its I/O developer conference.It also means that carmakers can incorporate Android directly into instrument clusters.The concept, on a Maserati Ghibli, is also equipped with a 15-inch 4K display and a 720P digital cluster."As they move away from using proprietary systems for infotainment, a big win for them car manufacturers is going to be that the ecosystem that s part of Android will come with that so they don t have to think about, 'How do I go out and make developers write for this proprietary system?'"Of course, it will still be up to individual car companies to decide whether or not to adopt Android, and they will have a lot of flexibility in deciding exactly how they implement it into their vehicles.Even then, we won't be seeing Android N running natively on anything more than a concept anytime soon.

The AK T1's inputs include microSD, USB, optical and auxiliary, plus streaming over Ethernet, Wi-Fi and BluetoothThis article was first published in the June 2016 issue of WIRED magazine.Its first all-in-one home media system now lets you share the sound by integrating its 24-bit/8-192kHz audiophile-quality sample rate into a 100cm-tall speaker tower.The six speakers are driven by a hybrid amplifier system.An analogue amp delivers crisp highs to the tweeters; a rich midrange and deep bass for the subwoofers comes courtesy of a digital system.£2,499The 6.2kg bar is 100 x 13.1 x 12.5cm, and was created by Torsten Valeur, who has been designing Bang and Olufsen products since 1997A pair of centrally placed four-inch bass drivers coupled with a three-quarter-inch tweeter on either end give this characteristically stylish Bang & Olufsen all-in-one system a balanced but room-filling sound.Integrated streaming services including Spotify, Deezer and TuneIn can be controlled from the device's touchscreen, the remote or the BeoMusic app.
In previous years, the only time you really get to hear about a smartphone's camera performance was in a review, sponsored or otherwise, days or weeks after the device goes to market.But with mobile photography taking on a more central role in smartphones today, you just can't get those reviews soon enough.DxOMark regarded the smartphone as having good HDR results when the feature is activated, thought at times inconsistent.Exposure is actually decent when indoors with low-light though there is some visible luminance noise.Of course, it performed best in bright light, where it exhibited better stabilization and noise reduction.But, then again, the smartphone is a mid-range device, so it will perform less spectacularly in other aspects.
The 2in1 tablet Chuwi Hi12 is one of the best options among the Cherry Trail tablets especially thanks to the excellent 2160 1440 pixel resolution screen and the useful, but rare 3:2 aspect ratio.But until today one of the lacking features has been the stylus support, well not anymore because the Chuwi HiPen H1 just launched in order to fix that.Chuwi HiPen H1 is an active stylus designed specifically for the use with the Hi12 tablet and on paper it looks really good.Featuring 256 pressure levels software adjusted even 512 levels , aluminum metal body with 1.2mm/1.6mm writing tips, under 2mm precision limit, 30-degree writing angle support and palm supression control technology just does the trick.The pen has two buttons capable of mimicking the mouse buttons and being powered by the dry AAAA battery it can be used for up to 250 hours.The auto sleep function helps to preserve some power so the battery exchange won t be a common occurence.Chuwi HiPen H1 is a pretty handy addition to the Hi12 tablet accessory family and with the official retail price of $29.99 it s also nothing crazy expensive and out of the reach.So for those looking to use the great 12-inch tablet screen fully with some active stylus then this is the way to go.You can get it for example here for even a dollar cheaper.
The instruments we used to test these machines are capable of detecting particles as small as 0.010 micron, which is far below the threshold for civilian equipment and below the 0.3 micron threshold for the HEPA standard.What follows is just a summary of our findings, but for those who are interested in learning more, the How we tested section of our full review includes our procedures, methods, and results, complete with tables and graphs of our results.The thin 3/16-inch activated carbon filter is just not up to the task.If you have severe allergies to particulate allergens or other health issues related to air quality, or you re willing to pay a premium for a machine that can be extremely efficient while running quietly, we recommend our upgrade pick, the Blueair 503 with the SmokeStop filter package.In our noise-limited tests, it removed more than 90 percent of the particles from our bedroom-sized testing area in 10 minutes—that s over 10 percent more than the next best purifier and over 60 percent more effective than the control.Its exceptional performance in this area is a big part of why FEMA and the Red Cross chose Austin Air units for deployment at Ground Zero and the surrounding areas in the aftermath of 9/11.
Amazon might soon turn the tables on Google, who mostly reigns in the mobile market, by putting out a new kind of tablet.Codenamed "Knight", this tablet will differentiate itself from Amazon's existing Fire tablet line by being focused around its smart assistant, Alexa.Details about the "Knight" tablet are still shrouded in secrecy aside from the Alexa factor.It may or may not be the continuation of the 14-inch "Cairo" tablet that the retail giant was rumored to be working on.Despite the "yet another platform" syndrome, reception has been surprisingly positive.Preferably before Google or Apple also secure the market.

Homtom is sticking to their budget and ultrabudget guys until they unleash the newest flagship with the interesting hardware, but for now we are really stuck with the upgraded HT7 model in the form of Homtom HT7 Pro.The original HT7 used the MT6580 processor which is an abbreviation for forget about LTE and the Pro version is trying to erase that shortcoming.For that it s equipped with the LTE enabled MT6735 chipset supporting bands 1/3/7/20, 5.5-inch HD display, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB of storage, 13 MPix rear camera and 3000 mAh battery capacity.Right now you can get the Homtom HT7 Pro in the flash sale for $69.99 price for example here or voilá here.
