Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet is so Light It Can be Carried Away by Balloons (Video)

By Radu Iorga

There’s a fresh Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet ad, one that seems focused on just how light this device is. The product is very similar to the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet and it was announced at MWC 2015, with upgraded specs.

The thing is that the slate is very light and slim, at 6.1 mm in waistline and 392 grams. The ad is based on showing the tablet being lifted in the air by a few Helium balloons. The promo video was filmed around the Fira Montjuic in Barcelona, so it was close to WMC 2015. The newcomer is 50 grams lighter than the Xperia Z2 Tablet and much lighter than the 467 gram 10.5 inch Galaxy Tab S from Samsung.

I guess nobody can see such a low weight as a bad thing, but you wouldn’t want a tablet to feel flimsy, would you? Anyway, the product also has other advantages, like being water and dust resistant and packing the Snapdragon 810 CPU and 3 GB of RAM. It also runs Lollipop and has a solid 8 megapixel camera and surprisingly good 5 MP selfie camera.

Recently, the Chinese producer Vido announced the launch of a new tablet that can be easily transformed into a notebook device thanks to a dedicated keyboard. The name of this new slate is Vido W11X, and among its main specs we get a 11.6-inch panel (1.366 x 768 pixels), and an Intel Core M 5Y10C processor clocked at 2.0 GHz.

There’s also Intel HD Graphics 5300, 4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM memory, 128 GB SSD hard-drive, a 3.5 mm headphone jack and HDMI output. Vido W11X runs Windows 8.1 operating system and on the connectivity side we have a USB 3.0 port, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi and TF card expansion slot.

 

We get to know that the USB 3.0 port will allow us to connect some accessories to the tablet, like a wired mouse, a keyboard or any other compatible device. From the pictures above, we notice a pretty similar keyboard to that found on Asus notebooks, a nice feature after all. The price is yet to be announced.

MWC 2015: Nokia N1 Android Tablet Hands On – Looks Like an iPad Mini, Has a Nice Flavour of Android (Video)

By Radu Iorga

The Nokia N1 is a clear case of not seeing the forest for the trees, because everyone notices how much the device resembles the iPad Mini and forgets to praise the cool software on board. The product was available for hands on at the Nokia booth at MWC 2015 and we achieved the hands on presentation below.

The device’s facade reminds me of the Xiaomi Mi Pad, while back and sides feel like the iPad Mini. The slate measures 6.9 mm in thickness and uses anodized aluminum, finished in a premium way. Nokia N1 has rounded edges and at the bottom we find a reversible USB Type C port, flanked by two stereo speakers. The Android that runs here is covered with a new experience called Z Launcher.

This launcher learns your use patterns, so if you like to play games in the morning and use productivity apps in the evening, those will be pushed to the forefront in those times of day. You can also draw gestures to trigger certain features and the UI is very simple and minimalistic. There are 2 GB of RAM inside, a powerful Intel CPU and a 7.9 inch screen upfront with Retina-type resolution.

All of that can be yours for $250.

MWC 2015: Jolla Tablet Hands on – Great Multitasking and a Very Interesting Platform (Video)

By Radu Iorga

Finnish firm Jolla was present at MWC 2015, where they showcased their Jolla tablet, a Sailfish OS device, that we got to check out up close and personal in the hands on video below.

Sailfish OS was built on top of the Mer open source project and it runs perfectly on this slate. The Jolla Tablet started as an Indiegogo project, that has received more than $2.2 million funding from over 18k backers. The product offers access to Android apps and runs them without problems. The 8 inch Jolla Tablet is currently priced at $249 and it runs Sailfish OS 2.0, with a very nice multitasking system.

We’ve got a QWERTY keyboard on board, that splits into two in landscape orientation, so it makes thumb typing easier. There’s also a customizable quick settings bar, that can be triggered with a swipe away from the homescreen. Jolla included an aggregated notifications feed, a bunch of themes and its core gestures include swiping up anywhere to get to the apps area or swiping to the side to have a glance at the homescreen.

There are application covers here, which are basically small cards that show you open apps on the homescreen. Jolla takes great pride in multitasking between apps without having to return to the homescreen. Apps are shown in a grid, with live info attached to them. This is a 7.85 inch tablet with a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution and a quad core Intel 1.8 GHz processor, a 5 MP camera and 32 or 64 GB of storage, as well as a 4450 mAh battery.
