Shortly after Five Technology announced it will be first,. Chuwi announces it will join the club [Google Translate].

It remains to be seen if Chuwi will improve their industrial design so that microSD cards don’t protrude.

As I expect other tablet makers to also announce they will adopt the 3288, I won’t be doing each announcement. I mention Chuwi only because its V88 was a very popular tablet.

HP Makes Me Go Hmmmm

HP to Re-Enter Smartphone Market With “Phablets” in India

Another feature HP is counting on: They’re thin. The Slate 6 is slightly less than nine millimeters thick while the Slate 7 is 9.5 millimeters.

If the render is accurate, HP is capable of sleek and Samsung-like design.

That also makes me wonder if we’ll see the Slate 8 Pro get a fast redesign to conform to the style above. Since it seems to mainly be available via HP’s website, there wouldn’t be a huge disruption to retailer inventories.

But hah! This is HP. I’m only fooling myself. Cue sigh of longing.
