Technology is expensive, is it not? I know for a fact that I can’t go out and buy a brand new iPad whenever I want to. The more advanced technology gets, the more expensive it seems to get as well. Owning new devices can cost so much these days. Mind you that this isn’t just for personal use either. If you need a lot of iPads for an occasion, you could be looking at quite the price tag depending on the number that you need. Purchasing many devices at one time could definitely break the business budget. This why there are rentals for tech devices like this. That’s right! You can rent iPads for any occasion should you want to!

  • Any type of tech convention
  • Certain classrooms or small-time learning classes
  • Business meetings

These are just a few of the many options where a tech rental for iPads could really come in handy.

Tech Conventions

LQLaptop

When you go to a convention that caters a lot to technology, you are going to see a lot of devices. One of the main devices you’ll see is the tablet. By now, I’m sure that we are all aware of ever growing tablet trend. Apple has done extremely well for themselves with the iPad. It’s the tablet that is still on top of the world. If you see someone on top of any type of competition, whether it’s sports, business or tech, they’re at the top for a reason. If you are  a vendor going to a tech convention, why not rent your iPads to show off whatever service you’re promoting? It will help you engage more customers at the same time and possibly help make more sales.

Tech In The Classroom

We all dealt with the no CD players, cell phones, GameBoys, rules growing up in school, but times are changing. Technology is becoming more and more apparent, even in the classrooms. Ever heard of a SmartBoard? Since technology is becoming so dominant now, it shouldn’t be out of the question to embrace it with open arms and implement the use of iPads in the classroom. Whether it be in a training class or a school classroom, iPads could easily help make the learning experience more interactive, fun, and immersive.

Your Business Meeting

The office building is where technology thrives. Computers. Printers. Laptops. Copiers. Projectors. They all have their respective homes in the office. When you get called to a meeting, you may not have those items with you to help you learn and become hands-on with the topic at hand. By renting iPads and using them in the business meeting, you could make the meeting much more efficient. You’ve given everyone in the meeting a new rented iPad, so now they can stay on task, keep up with the boss and his speed on the topic, and feel just as important as the boss himself. Who knows! It may even spark some ideas within the meeting to help increase business and workflow if everyone is using an iPad.

The iPad is the most sold and used tablet around the world. There’s clearly a reason for Apple’s success with the iPad. Why not help make your next convention, training class, or business meeting a bit more fun and efficient without the added worry of buying all of the tablets you need?

I don’t know about you all, but I feel as if everyone in the world owns an iPad these days. They at least own some sort of tablet. That’s just the way that computing and mobile technology have gone. I feel like ever since the smartphone came out and started changing the game, all of the other tech devices followed suit. The smartphone made way for the tablet. Once the iPad came out in 2010, the numbers had skyrocketed from sales and even still today, there are still sales being made. That being said, some of the sales have dropped recently. Some experts think that this is reason for alarm. I think they’re dead wrong.

Death Of A Category?

Some would think that the tablet market is on its way out. These people are very wrong. At least for the time being, the iPad and the tablet market itself aren’t dying out anytime soon. People think that just because sales might be down a slight margin of a percent that the iPad is going to die. There could be some slight merit to the reasoning behind it but think about this; where are they going to go next? They can only do so much to make technology get more mobile. Unless they somehow develop a floating iPad or invisible personal assistant, the tablet market won’t be going out of style anytime soon.

The Tablet Is A Phone, But It’s Not

If you mean to sit here and tell me that your tablet isn’t a phone, I’d be one of the first people to tell you that you’re lying to yourself. The way that our smartphones are today suggests that our tablets are basically the same way. What I mean by that is that our phones have become so advanced and that we are so demanding of our technology that we want our phones to do everything. Our tablet is essentially our phone without texting and calling features. The best part is that there are still apps for texting and calling, even on the iPad. The way that it isn’t like a phone is because of the “upgrade system”.

Upgrades And Numbers

It’s all about he upgrades these days. Think of this. We upgrade our phones roughly once every year to two years. When is the last time you upgraded your tablet? You have to think about it even if you did, don’t you? Even when we upgrade our phones, we don’t pass them down to family. We get rid of them. We don’t do this for our tablets. This is exactly why the numbers seem to be dwindling for the tablet market. You will pass down a tablet or a computer. You’re not going to pass down a cell phone, and you’re going to upgrade a phone at a quicker pace. The tablets that come out don’t take as much of a daily beating as our phones do, thus making them a bit more resilient. Simply because you have all these factors affecting the numbers, this is why you have experts saying something that is completely false.

The iPad and the tablet market in general are going nowhere any time soon. Apple will still be making more tablets, just like Samsung, Android, and Google. Just because sales numbers look to be down comparatively over the past couple of years doesn’t mean that this is a dead category. Oh no my friends, the tablet and the iPad are still very much alive and well.

thinkpad8Microsoft has been struggling a little bit, especially after having to cut out so many jobs. New news from Lenovo just adds to the pain. Lenovo is the worlds largest PC vendor, and they have said that they are going to some selling one of their small screen Windows tablets in the United States.

On Thursday Lenovo confirmed that the 8.3 inch Thinkpad 8 would not be available on store shelves in the states anymore. On top of that, the 8 inch Miix 2 has already sold out in the states and there has been no word on restocking. This means that Lenovo is going to have zero small screen tablets available in the U.S.

The company has observed that their customers in the U.S. are more interested in Windows tablets with bigger screens, and they are really happy with the response that the ThinkPad 10 has gotten. The ThinkPad 8 has done way better in other markets like China, Brazil, and even Japan. They are pretty much just delivering the goods where they are wanted the most. Smart move for Lenovo, bad news for Microsoft.

The small demand may come from the fact that Microsoft ignored the small screened tablet world for a very long time. The iPad mini was already out and so were a lot of other Android and tablets, including Samsung’s Galaxy tab, before Windows even offered support for tablets of that size. By that time it was too late and the market had already been spoken for. Even Asus, Acer, and Dell has their own smaller tablets out on the market that had been doing pretty well. And even now, some of the apps for Windows are a little wonky on smaller screens. It’s just not working.

Microsoft still has a lot going for them with tablets. They do great with larger ones. They provide a superior computing experience, and tablets like the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 have gotten awesome reviews.

Lenovo will probably offer smaller tablets again at some point, but for right now Microsoft is going to have to focus on their bigger tablets and possible start working on a game plan for their next shot at a big release of a smaller tablet. They have said that they will probably still put out another one in the U.S. before the end of the year to see how it does, so Microsoft should start preparing.

tabSamsung has been battling Apple in the tablet wars for some time now. Though Apple still has the largest share of the tablet market, Samsung is releasing a line of tablets with features that might make you want to put down that Apple iPad for a Samsung Tablet. And that’s what many are doing, as Apple is losing more and more of the market share to Samsung. The Galaxy Tab Pro series didn’t stuggle by any means, and now there are plans to release a new line of tablets.

So what might Samsung be able to add now, seeing as how their tablet line is pretty extensive. As it stands right now, they have plans to release the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S. Now, I’m not too sure what the S is for, but there do seem to be some pretty promising features for the new model.

Since these are just rumors right now, please take that into consideration. Speculation considered, the tablet looks to be pretty well rounded, and definitely geared towards the higher end of the spectrum. The first rumored feature that caught my attention was the possibility of a fingerprint scanner on the home button. This in particular makes me nervous just because we know all about the many different ways that you could open the fingerprint scanner on the iPhone 5S. Everything from a cat paw, to your elbow could open up the phone. Hopefully this same thing doesn’t happen to the new Tab S, but that is just one feature so I don’t mean to pigeonhole here. The new tablet it also said to feature an AMOLED screen with a 2,560 x 1,440 pixel display. It’s also rumored to be coming in two different sizes. One in 10.5 inches and then a slightly smaller version (possibly a mini version?) coming in at 8.4 inches.

If we take a look inside the new tablets, we’re going to find a Samsung Exynos 5 Octo processor and 3GB of RAM. Again, these are just reports of what will be inside. Samsung hasn’t confirmed these assumptions…yet. Both the 10.5 inch model and the 8.4 inch model will be offered in Wi-Fi and 4G LTE models. The new tablets will also be coming with a pretty decent camera for tablets. Rumor says it will house an 8 megapixel rear facing camera and a 2.1 megapixel rear facing camera.

There are no confirmed dates for release or prices given yet, but something tells me that we won’t have to wait long to see what is going to come from Samsung’s new tablets. They are definitely continuing to give options, which is not a bad market strategy. On the other hand, Apple doesn’t offer too many options for tablets, but the iPad is still on top as of now. Then again, you never know. This tablet could be the Galaxy Tab to finally push the Apple iPad off of it’s pedestal.

If you are the average American, you have at least one Apple product, and if it’s not Apple then it’s Samsung. There is no fighting that these are the biggest tech brands in the mobile market today. They’ve obviously earned both of their places in the competitive market. The only drawback is that since they are so big, many of the other brands who offer products that offer the same features and functions as the devices of the two top dogs get pushed under the rug. It’s always hard to see a brand that you do love and support not get nearly enough recognition. Some of us actually do enjoy products that don’t come from Apple. Take Sony for example. When that name comes to mind, it’s usually accompanied by TV or Playstation. Sony does offer tablets much like that of its larger competitors. Some of their tablets even have features that don’t come with products like the iPad.

The new Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet might not be the trendiest tablet, but that’s all because of popularity contests. No matter how you slice it, Apple and it’s products have become more of a fashion statement than anything. If you don’t have an Apple product, you “may as well be stuck in the stone age” as some of the younger generation might say. With that being said, Sony’s Xperia has a few things that could give Apple and it’s iPad a run for their money.

First off, lets look at what’s inside the Z2 tablet. Right off the bat, you’re going to find that the device is running off of the latest Android OS, a.k.a. 4.4.2 KitKat. This is already a step up from the Z1. Next comes the processing power. The 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor is gonna make sure that you can do pretty much anything on this tablet. Anything that you may have in mind that you want to work on on this tablet? This processor is gonna make sure you can do it. 3GB of RAM are a nice addition to go along with the 10.1 inch Full HD display screen. Yes, the iPad Air still has a bit of an edge in terms of pixels with its 2,048 x 1,536 pixel resolution, but that should be hardly noticeable. The Z2 sits at 224 pixels per inch and the iPad Air goes at 264 pixels per inch. Not really enough to make a huge difference.

Did I happen to mention that this particular tablet is on 6.4 mm thick? You might as well be holding a brochure in your hands when you hold this thing. However, due to it’s thin design and extreme lightweight, it does seem a bit fragile as it does tend to flex a bit. Never a good thing when it comes to things that aren’t necessarily supposed to bend. Even so, the thin design does make it look incredibly sleek. The kicker with this bad boy? Waterproof. That’s right. If you are like me and prone to accidents involving spilling food or liquid near you precious, precious tech, this helps you cast any worries of that aside. Feel free to take this tablet into the kitchen, place it next to the sink, and keep watching Netflix while you scrub the dishes. No need to worry about it getting messed up. In case you were wondering, the iPad Air ISN’T water proof.

There isn’t any price set for the new Xperia Z2 tablet, but we should expect to see one soon. If you want to test the waters with a powerful tablet to make comparisons and see if it’s worth your money, go ahead and rent one. Trying before you buy is never a bad financial call.

thin-tabletIt’s always suspenseful watching a fight among two giants play out. It’s almost like watching your favorite sports teams duke it out. You may be wondering how? Think of it like this. Every large electronics company is competing for one thing; your dollar bill. They want to out do their competition and be the best. It’s all a competition and it always will be. Some people are “fan boys” and “fan girls” as well. Basically, they favor one brand over the other. If we are looking at the two top tech giants out there, the two names that should immediately pop up are Apple and Android. Each of these brands has a huge following and it should come as no surprise that they are still competing. Apple has usually dominated the ranks, but recently Android has been making a comeback.

iOS has always been on top since the release of the first iPad years ago. They have owned the market and with little to no effort. It was always the top operating system when it came to tablets. Not just with tablets though. Mainly any mobile device was using an Apple iOS software system. Android decided to come back and fight however, and has since made its name in the mobile market digging into the sales of the iPhone. Android hasn’t stopped at the phone market though, they decided to go for the tablet market as well, and no their persistence has paid off.

A report from Gartner has shown some pretty incredible numbers for Android. In terms of tablet sales for this previous year, Android took the crown over any other operating system. Not only did they increase their numbers, but they did it by a huge jump. In 2012, Android saw only 53.3 million units sold. In only a years time, 2013 would show Android an increase in numbers by more than half! The numbers for last year show Android at 121 million units sold. Mind you these are global sales, but that is still quite the increase. With numbers like this in just a yearly increase, and Android continuing to push the market in their favor, they are well on their way to knocking Apple out of their way.

Having said that, Apple is still at the top in terms of it being a single manufacturer. Even so, seeing Android jump may be a bit nerve-wracking to the company. Apple did see quite the jump in tablet web usage in Canada and the US however. Any victory is a victory, whether it be large or small.

Now comes the question of if Apple should really be that worried. What many people need to consider is that, this is just tablet operating systems and nothing more. Not to mention the fact that Android OS’s are spread over a multitude of different platforms, where as iOS stays strictly on Apple products. Since Android and sell their OS to other products, it’s much easier for them to gain headway in the market. While, yes you can see the OS’s switch with a bit of reprogramming, it is not very common. It’s all just a matter of deciding which OS is better for you. If you are on the fence about who you should be throwing your money at, try renting a tablet with iOS and a table with Android to see which suits you better!

nookContrary to what you may think, not all technology is created equally. There are certain devices and gadgets that are just better than others. Whether you have been using a walkman still when the iPod and iPhone have been out for the past 10 years, or if you are a tech junkie who uses specs to justify what you will be buying next. No matter what the case may be, there will always be some brands and models that are just better than others. For example, not every tablet is what it seems. Look at the first Kindle compared to the new Kindle Fire HDX. Two completely different systems it seems. One developer is usually under the radar, but they are still giving it another go. Barnes & Noble has plans to release a new rendition of the Nook tablet this Spring.

Even though Barnes & Noble is planning to release a new Nook tablet, lets look at how their most recent sales have been to try and predict how the new tablet will do. The last tablet that the company released was the Nook Glowlight back in October of last year. This particular tablet was released with literally, next to no marketing or announcements at all. It is still also classified that it’s an e-reader, so that may have hindered sales. Although the other two tablets that the company has released, The Nook HD and Nook HD+, were completely Android powered and fared very well in the tablet market. The only thing with those two tablets, is that they are both roughly two years old now. Obviously with newer, more advanced technology, it’s easy for these types of devices to get left in the dust, especially since they are more classified as e-readers anyway.

The CEO of the company, Mike Huseby, has noted that the revenue for this type of hardware is just not that good. He also noted that they are able to find the profit margins in the “content revenue”. This alone can allow us to see where their profits will lie, even with a new device becoming available. The CEO is also still reviewing the digital and retail aspects of the Nook division, and has contemplated separating them into two different businesses.

If you are the proud owner of a Nook already, you know what they are used for; eBooks. The only problem with this, is that both Apple and Android have established their own versions of eBooks on their respective App stores and “eBook stores”. They have essentially eliminated any need for any type of e-reader type of device, unless you are just an avid bookworm that enjoys the Nook. It is by no means able to compete power wise against the other two giants of the tablet world. But perhaps you have been wanting to try something new, like see what the real tablet world is all about. There has to be a reason why they have brought in so much revenue for these businesses, right? Try renting a tablet such as an iPad, or iPad Mini to see what the rage is all about, especially if the new Nook is still slated to be another rendition of whats already been done.

The First Firefox Tablet

January 20th, 2014 | Posted by Jake Nolan in Android | iPad - (0 Comments)

Mozilla has been working on Firefox OS support for tablets for a long time now, and they have finally received their very first prototype from Foxconn and released pictures of the device and it’s full specs.

The details were shared with the world in a recent blog post from Asa Dotzler. The new tablet, named “Flatfish”, is actually an Infocus New Tab F1, which is a lower end 10 inch tablet that generally sells online for around $150. It appears that the only difference is the operating system

The idea of keeping that price point is pretty awesome. It seems like this device is going to be the Firefox version of the ZTE open. The tablet will be targeting customers who don’t want to spend a whole lot of money but still need nice features and still want to be able to surf the web and run important apps. There is talk of Foxconn being able to manufacture the tablets and be able to retail them for under $100. If that happens, then this tablet could be a huge hit.

As far as what’s under the hood, you have a quad-core Alwinner A31 processor that is clocked at 1.0GHz. This processor isn’t the best, and it uses older technology, but it offers very good performance and allows the overall price to be dropped. It has 2GB of memory which is pretty standard, and more than enough for most users.

It also comes with 16GB of internal storage, which is more than some other tablets offer. There is also a micro SD slot so you can add more storage space if needed. The new Firefox tablet is also equipped with a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front facing camera. This comes in handy when using Skype.

Of course you have Wi-Fi connectibility. The tablet has a 7000mAh battery that will give you a pretty decent amount of use between charges, about 6 hours of use and about a week on standby.

Other versions of tablets built by Foxconn with these components have had generally good reviews, but there were a few problems with OS lag and touch screen response. Those tablets were shipped with the Android operating system and there is a good chance that Mozilla has worked out most of the bugs with their new operating system.

iPad and iPad mini

The iPad and iPad Mini have done very well for themselves. It seems that when people think of technology, and its future, we continue to think slimmer, smaller, and sleeker. We saw this trend first hand when the iPad Mini first released. It has now become one of the staples to the iPad series. While Apple is still leading the tablet market, there have been many strong competitors show up  over the years and make their mark on the tablet battlefield. Take for example, the multitude of Android tablets and Microsoft tablet/laptop combos like the Surface Pros. Even Kindle came out with a competitor to the iPad Air. Now though, there may in fact be a sleek competitor against the iPad Mini.

The Lenovo ThinkPad 8 may very well be the tablet that can hold its own against Apple’s iPad Mini. During it’s unveiling at the CES event in Las Vegas, many got to view and hold this tiny new powerhouse. It is currently running with Windows 8.1 OS on the Atom mobile CPU. This CPU is the newest that Intel has to offer. It weighs in at less than one pound and includes a SIM card slot. The slot is said to be used for LTE support in other markets, and is currently only available in a Wi-Fi Only mode here in the States. That being said, representatives from Lenovo did say that a mobile broadband option should be coming here to America as well. The ThinkPad 8 also includes a front and rear facing camera, like its competitor, the iPad Mini. The rear camera for the Thinkpad however is an 8MP where as the iPad Mini’s rear-facing camera resolution is set at only 5MP. The front facing camera on the new ThinkPad is comes with a 2MP resolution. The screen on the ThinkPad also surpasses the iPad Mini in size, but not in resolution. With the ThinkPad having a 1920 x 1200 resolution display, it doesn’t quite match up to the iPad Mini’s retina display at 2,048 x 1,536 resolution.

During the showcase, the new tablet was also showing off a new case to accompany the device. Much like the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9’s special Origami case, the new case for the ThinkPad adds some similar functionality to the device. Where as you would slide the case down for the Kindle Fire HDX camera to activate, the new ThinkPad case actually has a corner tab that flips down to reveal and enable the camera on the tablet. Its reminiscent of the SmartCases for the Apple iPads and how the put your device to sleep when covered but activate when uncovered.

The lowest end model for the new ThinkPad 8 sits at $399 with 8GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space. Obviously the more money you spend, the more storage will be getting as it will also be available in 64GB and 128GB models. It is definitely shaping up to hold its own in the tablet wars and seems to be adapting with the markets competitors in terms of casing, processors, and accessories. Now all that is left to see is how its sales numbers will stack up against the iPad Mini’s and how well the new Windows 8.1 OS will work on the tablet.

Android gaming hasn’t been taken too seriously so far. It is mainly limited to a few neat games you use to kill time during car rides. Recently, new Android “Console” devices have been popping up, like the MadCats Mojo or the Ouya Gamestick. These are two of the most recognizable Android gaming devices, probably because they are some of the only ones that exist. But, as CES 2014, a new tablet/Android gaming console was revealed. The Snakebyte Vyper…. and it is definitely an interesting Android device!

This new device has much more to offer than other similar gaming devices. The Vyper is a 7 inch tablet with a dock that lets you connect it to your TV. This allows you to play games and stream them directly to your television. The tablet has a 1280 x 800 resolution, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of memory. It has two cameras, a rear 5MP and a 2MP front camera and is powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core processor.

The Snakebyte Vyper comes with the tablet, dock , and an AirMouse controller. The AirMouse resembles a standard remote control that would come with your TV. Either way, it’s really neat and usable, but there is the option to upgrade and buy the $49 gaming controller upgrade that seems much more logical. The interface of the Snakebyte is very organized, coming with different categories for movies, games, music, and everything else. So if you were to download a movie, you would have a much easier time finding it.

The dock that comes with the tablet is L shaped and has slots for the tablet to slide into. The gaming controller looks like a mixture of the new Xbox of Playstation controllers, with standard joystick and D-pad, then the 4 other buttons on the other side, and also the trigger buttons.

The Snakebyte Vyper is a great little device that covers everything from a standard tablet to Android gaming on the big screen. The standard package is $199.99, and with the upgrade controller that puts the whole package at $249.99. This is a great choice for a serious gamer looking to take the Android experience to the next level. Play on the go, or play at home, and get all of your business work done at the same time
