While most people are patiently waiting and watching for Android 6.0 Marshmallow to be available for their smartphones, not much noise has been generated by tablet owners who no doubt look forward to the sweet update. NVIDIA appears to be ready to become one of the first manufacturers to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow out to their tablets thanks to an update for the NVIDIA SHIELD tablet K1. If NVIDIA gets the update out soon enough, and they should be close based on a video they released yesterday, they should only be trailing Google’s own Nexus line of tablets. Read more
Google has today published the factory images for the long-awaited Android 6.0.1 update for the Pixel C. In terms of added functionality, this upgrade transports a new Emoji collection to the device, together with the latest security patch for the open-source operating system, which is aimed at resolving any critical security issues the handset might have.
Google added a new device to the Google Store this week, the Pixel C, an apparent mashup between an Android tablet device and a Chromebook. With a price tag of $499.99, many people are trying to figure out whether the device is something they want to invest in. Part of that decision-making process is trying to understand just what the device is supposed to be and where Google sees it in the future. To help address some of these issues, members of the team behind the Pixel C engaged in a question and answer session via Reddit.
Giving a tablet as a Christmas present can serve dual purposes; on the one hand, it will make you feel good that you gave such a nice present, and on the other it will keep the recipient busy (quiet) for hours.

And, handily for this time of year, it has been discounted to just £59, giving a saving of £20. Read more
This holiday season, Google has a new tablet for you to consider. The Pixel C debuted earlier this year at Google I/O, surprising everyone by separating itself from the Nexus line. Google is positioning the Pixel C as a high-end tablet focused on productivity. While it’s not quite a laptop, the Pixel C is like Microsoft’s Surface and the very confused Apple iPad Pro. Utilizing a physical keyboard attachment is vital to get the most out of the Pixel C. Like Microsoft and Apple hope for with their premium tablets, Google says the Pixel C merges portability and productivity.
The Samsung Galaxy View, a mammoth 18.4-inch tablet device, appears to be a niche product. That is not stopping Samsung from throwing resources in the form of app development at the Galaxy View though. We have already seen a family bulletin board style app for the device hit the Play Store and the Galaxy View Remote which turns a smartphone into a mouse to control the tablet. Following in the path of the Galaxy View Remote app, Samsung has released the S Console Gamepad app to turn a smartphone into a gaming controller. Read more
