I notice the “later this year” part.
Despite this being an Android tablet, this is still not a Nexus product. You won’t see another manufacturer’s name branded on the device. This is Google’s baby. The company also targets the Pixel line at a different audience. We don’t have pricing yet, but don’t expect this to be cheap.
Any cheap-ass tablet in conjunction with Colorfly coming? Or were we all just massively hoaxed?
Amazingly, screensnaps display the difference!
PadNews reprint from another site, via Google Translate: iPad mini 4 Review: Worst mini tablet
I don’t know what’s up with that odd title, because this is their China-tablet burying conclusion:
If you are considering to start with a 7.9-inch tablet, then this iPad mini 4 should be your first choice.
Boldfaced emphasis in the original.
Well, that slaps the hell out of Teclast, Onda, Chuwi and the rest! Also Samsung and Asus.

Due to IRL stuff, offline today.
Except for this quick Asus ZenPad S 8.0 “Basic” test with a quick screensnap after the break of the paper-like — to my eyes — display settings.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0:
I stopped in Barnes & Noble for another fondle of the Nook Edition of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0.
That screen is very, very glossy. It’s also harsh for reading. Despite the different screen modes and brightness settings I tried.
B&N has really locked down the two demo units I previously tried after I published this post. That’s not coincidental. Someone panicked. Now I can’t use the button for splitscreen or multitasking and I can’t upload screensnaps to this blog or even email! They also locked down the Notifications swipe-down gesture!
However, they didn’t cut off Install Unknown Sources. So I got evil and downloaded Google Play Books and the Kindle app. Both were a pain to get. The Kindle app came from Samsung’s app store. The Google app from the Play Store — somehow (I had to do some contortions I don’t recall now).
Neither of them would run as-is. Both wanted me to sign into my Amazon and Google accounts before I could try anything. No. I deleted both apps before I left B&N.
