Lenovo Surpasses Samsung on Indian Tablet Market, Becomes Segment Leader in Q2

By Radu Iorga

Fresh news about the Indian tablet market: turns out that Lenovo surpassed Samsung on this market, becoming the leader of such products in Q2 2017. Their share is now 21.8% and the data was unveiled in a report published last week.

The shipments of tablet devices evolved by 12.6%, especially thanks to the education, government and big company partnerships. Over 80% of the shipments of slates were boosted by these segments. Digital projects from the education and government segments drove the growth for the development of the commercial segment, according to Associate Market Analyst, Celso Gomes.

Samsung is now second placed in India, with a share of 20.6%. The total amount of tablets shipped in India in Q2 was 722.000 from all the brands available. This is a 2.9% increase from the past quarter, but the user segment dropped by 13.8%. There were also other reasons for the market performance to be mixed, like the new tax structure rule, that limits the inventory storing.

The third place on the Indian tablet market is taken by Datawind, with a share of 18.2%, followed by iBall on 4th place with 15.2%. Apple is 5th, with a share of 7.7%. Lenovo could lose its lead in Q3, if Samsung ups the ante with affordable tablets or convertibles, but that seems unlikely for now.

Wacom Working on Bamboo Note App, Wants to Make Note Taking More Intuitive

By Radu Iorga

Just yesterday we wrote about Wacom’s Bamboo Ink stylus and now another Wacom product pops up. This time it’s a software product, a professional note taking app, that should give the Samsung Note app a run for its money, in the Note 8 version.

Wacom usually relies on third party apps for pen support, like the Microsoft ones incorporated within Windows 10. OneNote comes to mind. Bamboo Note is the app made by Wacom and it’s said to be available soon, making note taking intuitive and simple, according to the company. The app lets you do more than just hand writing, you can type text, integrate images and use an unlimited canvas.

Notes can be exported to PDF or other formats, plus printed. The whole infinity canvas thing makes me think of OneNote for sure and I expect Microsoft isn’t thrilled that its product is getting a rival. Wacom has a good track record with such apps, if you just look at Bamboo Paper for example, that lets you turn your Windows tablet into a paper notebook and capture ideas on the go.

It’s all sketching, drawing and more, using a system that imitates real pen and paper.

ASUS Chromebook Flip Reaches US Market, Weighing 2 Pounds and Sporting Metal Design

By Radu Iorga

There’s been no shortage of Chromebooks over the past year, but ASUS took things up a notch when they debuted a few months ago the Chromebook Flip. After hitting Japan last month it now goes live in USA. Let’s refresh our memory on this classy Chromebook.

The full name of the product is ASUS Chromebook Flip C101 and it weighs just 2 lbs, while also sporting a full metal body. Since it’s a “flip” device, it obviously also turns into a tablet, not only a laptop. ASUS Chromebook Flip packs a 10.1 inch display with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, plus an OP1 processor, which is an ARM Rockchip 3399 unit. Specs include 4 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage too.

On the connectivity front there’s Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, two USB Type-C ports and one USB 2.0 port too. A microSD card slot is also here, plus a 3.5 mm audio jack. ASUS also promises a battery life of up to 9 hours on a charge. ASUS Chromebook Flip runs Android apps of course, like the other new Chromebooks. Basically, if you were to do nitpicking, you’d say that only the CPU is the drawback here.

If you live in USA and want to buy this machine, there’s the option of preordering the device here, on the ASUS website for $299.

Wacom Bamboo Ink Stylus Now Available for Windows 10 Tablets

By Radu Iorga

Once the Windows Ink feature came out, many Windows tablets started unlocking their potential for scribbling and drawing with a stylus. And some companies benefited from that, by launching dedicated accessories. Chief among them is Wacom, with their Bamboo Ink stylus, that just became available.

Announced this May, the product is finally up for sale. It’s a pressure-sensitive stylus, that works on a large variety of Windows 10 devices, made by different companies. The only requirement is that they support Windows Ink. For those of you not familiar with Windows Ink, this is Microsoft’s way of offering input via stylus, in a superior way compared to other platforms.

It came with Windows 10 Anniversary Update and lets accessory makers add support for pen-related features without even needing a singular pattern of hardware. Anyway, Wacom’s product is the one in question here and this Bamboo Ink comes with active stylus features, such as the pressure-sensitive tip, two customizable buttons on the side and a Bluetooth button at the top side.

That one can trigger features like Ink Workspace, start a Screen Sketch or open the Sticky Notes. These are triggered with a press, long press or press and hold action respectively. Wacom Bamboo Ink is available from Microsoft Stores and Best Buy, priced at $69.99. It can be used with the likes of ASUS Transformer Pros and Mini, Fujitsu Lifebook models, HP Elite x2 and so many more.

A full list of compatible products awaits you in the source link below.

iFixit’s iPhone 8 teardown finds a smaller battery and lots of glue

By Jeff Dunn

Enlarge (credit: iFixit)

There’s a new iPhone out in the wild, which means there’s a new teardown from iFixit showing everything that’s going on inside Apple’s latest handset.

The popular repair site wrapped up its breakdown of the iPhone 8 on Friday, finding that the 8’s internals, unsurprisingly, look a good deal like those of last year’s iPhone 7. There are some small changes—more adhesive strips surrounding the battery, a slightly redesigned Lightning connector, the use of standard Phillips screws in some spots instead of obtuse tri-point screws—but most of the more immediately apparent changes, like the new Qi wireless charging coil, were announced by Apple when it revealed the new phone earlier this month.

The teardown does confirm a few things that Apple hasn’t publicized, though. For one, iFixit says the iPhone 8’s battery checks in at 1,821mAh and can deliver up to 6.96Wh of power. Technically, that’s a step down from the iPhone 7’s 1,960mAh, 7.45Wh battery, though iPhones are generally known for making the most of lesser capacity. There’s unlikely to be any major drop-off in real-world use—we’ll know more once Ars completes its full review—but the ceiling for battery life may be a bit lower than it could have been. Beyond the battery, the iPhone 8’s insides include 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM, Toshiba NAND flash storage, and Apple’s new A11 Bionic chip.
