iOS 8.1.1 is here, and while it's a pretty minor update, Apple says it should increase performance for the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4S, two of the oldest devices that make the leap to iOS 8. Go grab it now, especially if you have some more elderly devices.
That old iPad 2 of yours too blurry for your precious eyes? That fantastically beautiful screen on the iPad 3 too heavy to lift for your puny muscles? Best Buy is willing to take those old tablets off your hands for at least 200 bucks. This Friday June 12th and Saturday June 13th, Best Buy is doing a trade-in event…
Samsung has, to some surprise, won a patent battle against Apple that could see the iPhone 4 and 3G iPad 2 banned from sale in the US.
Dealzmodo! If you're looking for the cheapest full-sized iPad available, it's not the iPad 2 which still costs $400 brand new. Instead, the best deal on an iPad is the third-generation iPad with Retina Display. You can get it for only $380.
Even though the new iPad came out recently, the iPad 2 is still alive and kickin'. Hell, it's very probably the second best tablet out there right now. And if you can get the second best tablet for only $320? That's a sick, awesome, definitely worth every penny steal of a deal.
Brightness ratings and contrast ratio make for lovely tech spec reading when you're shopping for a new device. But neither tells you how usable a display will actually be in everyday ambient light situations. So DisplayMate put some of the more popular options to the test.
The new iPad might have a gorgeous retina display, but a test from AnandTech shows that its predecessor gets better battery life.
So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn't possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn't worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case.
High five: You got your shiny new iPad. Look at that display! Switch some browser tabs and feel the power of that extra RAM. Yeeeeah. Oh, did you get a 4G LTE model? So fast!
Just like how Apple sells the previous generation iPhones for cheap after a new iPhone is released, the iPad 2 is going to live on even with the new iPad and its Retina display glory taking all the shine. Think of it as the lower end tablet that's better than any other tablet except for the new iPad.
This post originally appeared a couple of weeks ago, but it's worth repeating. Amazon's prices are holding steady, and Radio Shack's have only dipped about $15. As of 1 p.m. EST, though, they're all going to plummet. So get selling!
The best part about an imminent iPad 3 release? You can pick up an iPad 2 on the cheap. Best Buy's cutting $50 from the cost of Apple's soon-to-be-previous model tablet, meaning the price of admission for a 16GB Wi-Fi model is now just $450.
Apple's asked the Chinese Amazon store to stop selling iPads because of its not-going-so-well legal mess with Proview Technology. Proview's also trying to get all imports and exports of the iPad banned. So if neither side wants iPads sold in China, why are they still on shelves? Local customs officials, of course, who…
For a while Samsung couldn't decide whether to call its Galaxy Note tablet or a phone. Considering that its 5.3-inch screen splits the difference between an iPhone and a Galaxy Tab 7, that's not surprising.
Hub's flat-packed Prizm iPad stand is designed to be as light and minimal as possible, separating into two pieces of precision cut thin aluminum that can be easily slipped inside a bag or case alongside your tablet.
The limitations of typing on a touchscreen hinder how effective tablets can be as productivity tools. There is hope, though, at least for iPad users. This TypeWay keyboard supposedly makes things easier, by adapting the key layout for each user.
