In comparison to Google and Apple, Samsung’s Galaxy AI offers unique functionalities while competing in the AI arms race:

Rent an iPad Pro today

The iPad Pro 2024 is on the horizon, sparking excitement with its promise of cutting-edge technology and enhanced features. Here’s everything we’ve gathered about what to expect.

The much-anticipated launch of the iPad Pro 2024 has faced delays, but it seems the wait is nearly over. According to DigiTimes, citing sources from Apple’s suppliers, the new iPad Pro, alongside the next-generation iPad Air, was initially set for a March release. Despite several postponements, possibly to align with the release of the new M3 MacBook Air, Mark Gurman of Bloomberg indicates that Apple has now locked in a release week of May 6.

Price Expectations for the iPad Pro 2024

With the introduction of OLED displays, the iPad Pro 2024 is expected to see a significant price increase:

  • Yeux1122 (X leaker) suggests a starting price of about $1,499 for the new models, which nearly doubles the current starting prices of $799 (11-inch) and $1,099 (12.9-inch).
  • DigiTimes prediction, considered more reliable, forecasts a $160 increase, suggesting new prices might be:
    • 11-inch – $999
    • 12.9-inch – $1,259

These prices, while steep, align more realistically with typical Apple pricing strategies.

Top 5 Features to Look Forward to in the iPad Pro 2024

The upcoming iPad Pro is expected to deliver several significant upgrades:

  • New OLED panel: Offers enhanced brightness and a sharper display.
  • Relocated webcam: Optimized for video calls in landscape orientation.
  • M3 chip: Provides faster processing speeds.
  • Thinner chassis: For a sleeker, more refined design.
  • Slimmer bezels: Increases screen real estate without enlarging the device footprint.

Transitioning to an OLED display not only improves visual appeal with better contrast and color depth but also enhances battery efficiency. Insights from 9to5Mac, based on Apple’s software in the iPadOS 17.5 beta, confirm the shift to OLED technology.

In addition to hardware improvements, rumors suggest new accessories like an updated Apple Pencil with enhanced gesture controls and a redesigned Magic Keyboard.

Stay Tuned for the Release

With the projected release date of May 6 fast approaching, we are on the cusp of confirming these features and more. Stay connected for in-depth updates and coverage on these exciting new Apple devices.

galaxy-tab

Released in late August 2020, not many have had the chance to get their hands on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7. With a price and specs to compete with Apple’s iPad Pro, here we discuss price, design and display, software, hardware, and how Samsung’s latest Galaxy Tab compares to various iPad Pros.

Design and Display

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 has a similar appearance to Apple’s iPad Pro. Available in 11” or 12.4” size, this rivals the iPad Pro which comes in 11” or 12.9”. The S7 has an aluminum chassis, sports a small camera stack, and a magnetic strip for the S-Pen on the upper-left side. The S7 also comes with a quad-speaker setup by AKG. The S7 models come in bronze, black, and silver.

Despite the iPad having a larger camera bump, it looks remarkably similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S7. Both 11” and 12”+ models support a 120Hz variable refresh rate and built-in fingerprint sensors. While the Galaxy Tab S7’s 11” has 2,560 x 1,600-pixel resolution, the iPad Pro 11” displays a similar 2,388 x 1,668-pixel resolution. The larger tablets are similar as well, Samsung’s 12.4” displays at 2,800 x 1,752 pixels while Apple’s 12.9” has a 2,732 x 2,048 resolution.

With both tablets exhibiting their own unique display choices like camera placement and color choice, it’s fair to call this round a tie — which is kind of a win for Samsung to finally be in competition with the iPad Pro.

Hardware

Samsung’s latest Galaxy Tab S7 comes packed with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ chipset, which delivers the fastest speeds you’ll find on an Android tablet. Although it comes with two options: 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage or 8GB of RAM with 256GB of storage, both of Samsung’s new tablets support up to an additional 1TB of external storage with a microSD card. Although we can’t give Samsung the win in this round solely based on expandable storage, they definitely have the leg up because it’s well-known that Apple refuses to allow its users to have the same option, although the iPad Pro does come available in 128GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage options while running the A12Z chipset with 6GB of RAM.

When it comes to battery capacity, Samsung wins again. The Tab S7 has an 8,000mAh capacity battery, while the S7+ has a 10,900mAh battery — both support 45W fast charging with an optional power adapter.

Although the iPad Pros pack a 7,812mAh battery (11”) and a 9,720mAh battery (12.9”), iPadOS has more efficient power management capabilities. Both Galaxy Tab S7s and iPad Pros should be able to last most of the day between charging. Finally, the iPad Pro also comes with an 18W charger that supports fast charging, but Apple does not disclose the maximum power input.

With more powerful storage options and a more powerful chipset, it’s hard not to give Apple the edge when it comes to hardware.

Software

The Samsung Galaxy S7 comes with Android 10 along with the Samsung One User-Interface (UI). The latest update to Samsung’s One UI offers some useful features like automatic syncing across devices and integrated sync with Microsoft OneDrive, OneNote, and Outlook. Although Android 11 is available on certain Android devices already, Samsung has announced that it won’t update the Galaxy Tab S7 models until March 2021. Android 11 would bring a number of improved privacy, chat, and notification features.

Apple has always been known for its smooth, sleek user-interface — and nothing has changed. Coming standard with iPadOS with regular updates guaranteed, the iPad Pro’s operating system offers features like automatically converting handwriting to text, improved widgets, and an updated search and menu function.

Although there are some novelties to using a Galaxy Tab S7 that you won’t find in the iPad Pro, Apple still edges out the competition due to its more refined operating system, tight security, day one updates, and guaranteed operating system updates for at least a few years.

Cameras

The duo of Samsung Galaxy S7 tablets features a dual-camera stack with a 13MP primary lens and 5MP ultra-wide sensor. The front-facing camera clocks in at 8MP.

On the iPad Pro, you’ll find a larger camera bump than the S7 with a 12MP primary lens, 10MP ultra-wide lens, and a LiDAR scanner. The front camera has a 7MP sensor and TrueDepth camera for Apple’s Face ID.

The LiDAR scanner is used to determine the distance around objects and improve distance-measurement accuracy. Perhaps the key to Apple’s monopoly on the smartphone camera market, Apple’s iPad Pro has superior integrated camera technology in its flagship tablet — giving Apple the edge in the camera department.

The Winner?

The verdict is: there is no clear winner. The better tablet here depends on your needs. If you’re looking for a device to take your creative career to the next level or want a powerful laptop-replacement, an iPad Pro is your best option. Apple offers a more-refined OS, more options for creative applications, and the popular Magic Keyboard.

However, if you’re more interested in being as productive as possible, you might look into a Galaxy Tab S7 or S7+. The latest Galaxy Tab offers an amazing Super AMOLED display, plenty of RAM for multitasking, 5G options, and the ability to sync Samsung’s productivity apps with Microsoft Office.

iPad Air 4

November 5th, 2020 | Posted by Brian Kubala in Apple | iPad | Rental | Tablet | Tablet Rentals | Technology News - (0 Comments)

Introduced in September and formally released in October 2020, the iPad Air 4 is the latest tablet release from Apple. With a more modern design than the earlier generation, the iPad Air 4 features a similar design to the iPad pro, including a nearly edge-to-edge, 10.9” liquid retina LED display. The newest tablet from Apple also brings compatibility with features not seen on the previous generation of iPad Air, including compatibility with the new Magic Keyboard, the second-generation Apple Pencil, and USB-C. Let’s take a closer look at the new iPad Air 4.

 

Display and Design

As noted above, the iPad Air 4 boasts a 10.9” liquid retina LED display, similar to the one found in the current iPad Pro, however the display is capped at 60Hz, which is the same found in the previous generation of iPad Air. As far as the display, the 2360 x 1640 resolution absolutely delivers when it comes to the viewing experience. With the wide gamut of P3 color, the iPad Air 4 is able to offer better colors and contrast than the standard iPad. The display also features an anti-reflective coating, True Tone, and full lamination. The laminated display is especially stunning for those using the Apple Pencil, as the content appears closer to the screen. This simulates the feeling of writing on paper.

Also new to this generation of iPad Air, flat edges and slimmer bezels. This design was introduced in Apple’s 3rd generation of iPad Pro tablets, and it also being used on the iPhone 12. Paired with the nearly borderless screen, the iPad Air 4 feels like a modern tablet. Another bonus? Color options are available. The iPad Air 4 is available in silver, space gray, rose gold, green, and blue.

 

Performance

When compared to the regular iPad or even the previous generations of the iPad Air, the iPad Air 4 doesn’t do anything special that others can’t. However, moving to the A14 Bionic processor, the same chip found in the iPhone 12, the iPad Air 4 has a performance boost over the previous generation. According to Apple, this processor has double the graphics performance over the A12 processor, and is about 20% faster than the A13.

The iPad Air 4 features a 7-megapixel front-facing camera, perfect for those FaceTime calls in a time when we are relying on our tablets and phones to keep us connected to our friends, families, and coworkers. The new iPad Air 4 also boasts a 12MP camera that is capable of filming at 4K video. This is perfect for those who are film editors looking to do some work remotely, or students who are looking for a budget friendly tablet to learn the basics in the film editing industry.

Final Thoughts

With improved performance, better design, and a more beautiful display, the iPad Air 4 is worth a second look for those considering a tablet. It is a perfect fit for a mid-tier tablet between the regular iPad and the iPad Pro for those who are looking for performance, while still wanting to stay budget friendly.

Political opinion polling using tablet application

Candidates and their teams are constantly working to better understand the thoughts, motivations, and opinions of voters – and there’s no better place to do that than at campaign rallies and party events. While political opinion polling traditionally employed the use of pen and paper, relying on respondents to answer numerous questions put to them by a stranger, and depending on data entry volunteers to compile and translate all of the data later, tablet rentals and kiosk rentals are making the task less time-consuming and stressful. Read on to learn more about how tablet rentals and kiosk rentals make it easier for political campaigns and volunteers to conduct political opinion polling at rallies and party events. Make tracking data easier with Android or Apple applications!

Political opinion polling using tablet application

Roaming the crowd

For campaigns with a team of volunteers ready to hit the ground at campaign rallies and party events, tablet rentals allow participants to quickly and easily enter their responses to questions without your team members having to keep track of stacks of questionnaires. Our tablet rentals can even be preloaded with your voter polling software to allow for faster deployment. 

For polls with more than just a few questions, our iPad Pro rentals offer a large display that makes answering dozens of questions easier. For ease of portability, iPad Mini rentals allow your volunteers to quickly conduct political opinion polls at your events. Check out Explore Your Bid for Office with iPads and iPhones to learn more about how mobile options can help your team connect with voters. 

Self-serve options

When voters are approached directly by campaign workers or party affiliates with survey questions, they are less likely to give a true account of their opinion. Using self-serve options to conduct opinion polling allows campaigns to collect less biased opinions from those attending their party events and campaign rallies.

iPad kiosk rentals allow your respondents to give their true and anonymous opinion about the candidate, policy, platform, or party action. Setting up multiple iPad kiosk rentals near the entrance and exit points of your event allows attendees to participate in your opinion polls at their own pace – without pressure or unwanted attention.

Offer some incentive

Sometimes getting campaign and party event attendees to participate in opinion polls is more difficult than you’d think. While paying attendees to participate in political opinion polls is frowned upon, offering some incentive can help you get a greater response rate. 

Charging station rentals can be outfitted with interactive iPad screens that allow attendees to complete political opinion polls while charging their cell phones or other mobile devices. Our charging station rentals also include a fully customizable wrap that be printed with your campaign’s logo or other messaging. Read Power Up Your Event with Charging Station Rentals for even more ideas for including charging stations at your event venue. 

Charing station rentals pair well with tablet kiosks, and are great for creating branded event experiences.

Fully customizable

Judges holding up digital scores
Grey Border collie dog jumping over obstacle on agility competition

With spring in the air, large scale competitions and fairs are just around the corner. From wines and craft beers, to dog and animal shows, to pig and cow judging at county fairs, being a judge for various competitions takes dedication, passion, and more than a little organization. We recently received a request for iPad rentals from the organizers of a cheese contest and a wine contest where all entries will be evaluated through an app, eliminating the need for pencil and paper judging and making final tallying easier when it’s time to announce the winner. Here are just a few ways that our tech rentals can make judging easier for your upcoming competition.

There’s an app for that

Remember, you don’t need to reinvent the wheel when deciding to integrate technology into judging your competition. Your app can even do double duty allowing your event attendees to see standings in real-time, as well as having a schedule for each upcoming section of your competition. Additionally, many questions that attendees or participants may have can be answered through the app – saving your team valuable time on competition day!

For beer judging competitions, BJCP Styles app puts the Beer Judge Certification Program style guidelines at your judges’ fingertips, allowing them to effectively and professionally compare beers of the same style. The BJCP style guidelines are an international standard and using the app puts everyone on the same page from the start of judging.

Planning a car show competition? The eJudged app was built by a group of auto builders and enthusiasts to create a seamless, paperless judging process that makes the judging process easier and faster for promoters, judges, and the audience.

No matter what’s being judged at your event, there is probably already an existing app that you can use to make judging on an iPad, tablet, or smartphone easier.

Judging made easy

When your panel of judges are carting around clipboards and numerous pieces of paper during judging, it can make keeping track of everything much more difficult than it needs to be. Once you’ve found the right app for your event, it’s time to give your judges the tech tools they need to get the job done.

Putting an iPad Pro rental or Samsung Galaxy tablet rental into their hands lets your judges focus more on the competition than on juggling stacks of tally sheets. Especially in fast-paced competitions, judging on tablets allows judges to quickly compare scores and identify any scoring errors in real time. Learn more about how technology rentals make hosting and judging competitions and tournaments easier.

Attendee favorites

Judges holding up digital scores

While your judges have the final say in who takes home the awards in your competition, there’s something to be said for getting attendees involved in picking the “Fan Favorite”. Having a section of your app set aside for fan-favorite judging instantly creates the opportunity for greater engagement.

Your app can be free for attendees to download (consider having a simple QR code at the entrance to your event or at each station), but you’ll get greater participation if you post voting kiosk rentals at each booth or sporadically throughout the competition site. For fan judging, keep it simple. An easy star rating system allows guests to quickly enter their scores before moving on to the next station.

A great bonus? Allowing attendees access to the app gives you the opportunity to capture contact information like emails for future mailing lists and can give you a better idea of event attendance numbers.

Interested in attending some exciting competitions this year? Here are just a few of the events that should be on your radar.

US Championship Cheese Contest

Cheese connoisseurs from across the country descend on Green Bay, Wisconsin every other year for the United States Championship Cheese Contest. As the premier technical cheese, butter, and yogurt competition, the Contest strives to identify and amplify the profile of the winners.

New York International Wine Competition

Downtown New York City plays host to the New York International Wine Competition every year and relies on the unique knowledge and experience of industry experts. What makes this event truly unique is that only wine trade experts, like retail store buyers, sommeliers, distributors, and importers, are allowed to join the blind judging panel. With their frontline experience with consumers, these professionals are able to bring an element of real-world expertise to judging that other judges may lack

Great American Beer Festival

Recognized as symbols of brewing excellence, the gold, silver, and bronze awards given out by judges at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado identify the top three beers that represent the best in beer styles from around the world. A huge bonus for beer lovers? The Festival is also the largest beer tasting in North America!

Best Small Tablets for 2018

March 23rd, 2018 | Posted by rreeve in Android | Apple | Tablet - (0 Comments)

A good tablet should offer its users a larger display than a smartphone, and more portability than a laptop. Tablets make for great kiosk displays, and custom software can often be loaded onto a tablet rental before an event that requires a lot of small screens in a whole lot of places.

 

A lot of recently produced  tablets have been transitioning to the two-in-one tablet design, where tablets often have their own detachable keyboards and maybe even have a stylus to make the tablet a more versatile, multi-purpose, laptop-like device.

 

While being able to use your tablet as a mobile typing-capable workstation is nice, sometimes you may just need portable rental tablets for your convention (maybe you have various workshops scattered throughout the building that your attendees need to take devices to), or if you are thinking more personally, maybe you just want a small device you can take on the plane to read your books on or watch your shows while you travel.   

 

Whether you are looking for portable tablets to rent for a business event or if you are looking to buy a portable tablet that you can take with you on vacation, here is a list of the five best small (9 inch displays or smaller) tablets on the market.

 

  1. iPad Mini 4

 

While I am not an advocate of Apple’s OS on desktops and laptops, I can strongly endorse the stability and ease of use of its mobile iOS system. The iPad Mini 4 encapsulates Apple’s iOS in a 7.9 inch display that offers a brilliant resolution. As with most new Apple technology, the iPad Mini 4 also boasts two excellent cameras.

 

  1. Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8

The antithesis of Apple’s  white iPad Mini, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8 is a sleek black device with an 8 inch display. The device’s super AMOLED display makes it quite the looker. For anyone looking to purchase a small tablet for themselves, this tablet also features a custom fingerprint scanner that you can use as a login security measure.

 

  1. Huawei MediaPad M5 8.4

New tablet launches are scarce, but the Huawei MediaPad M5 is just that. The upcoming MediaPad M5 is a followup to the MediaPad M3, which was a widely praised Android tablet.

 

The M5’s screen has a 2560×1600 resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio which makes it a great device for watching videos on. However, there is one massive drawback which also makes it not really all that great for video watching if you don’t have the proper adapter: the M5 does not have a traditional headphone jack. If you need a device that is headphone compatible without an adapter, maybe consider looking for a different device first.

 

  1. Asus ZenPad S 8.0

The third Android tablet on our list so far, the Asus ZenPad S 8.0 is a good alternative to the MediaPad M5 if you are looking for a similar device that actually has a headphone jack. Yes, that is a big deal to me if you couldn’t already tell. The ZenPad has an 8 inch display, a 1536 x 2048 resolution, and an average battery life of eight hours.

 

  1. NuVision 8” Tablet

 

While maybe not as deserving as some other options to be on this list, the NuVision got a spot because it is unique and it fills a void in the tablet market. The NuVision is a tablet that runs on Windows 10, has an 8 inch display, and a 1920 x 1200 resolution.

 

If you need a tablet with the windows OS, the NuVision series of tablets may be your best hope for a while if you are still looking for a small, portable device.

Features Brought in with iOS 11

December 15th, 2017 | Posted by rreeve in Apple | iPad - (0 Comments)

iOS11(1)

While iOS 11 launched in September, there are a few features that you may not know about yet. Whether you are using an iPad rental or your own personal iPad, here are three features that will improve your iPad user experience.

1. Augmented Reality Compatibility

Pokémon GO is ok, and for what it was trying to do when it launched, it worked well. But Pokémon Go is just a launching point into a sea of possibilities for the future of augmented reality, and Apple seems to agree with this belief by including ARKit in the iOS 11 update

To be honest with you, the only AR application that I have found that personally interests me is the Ikea Place app, which helps you visualize what furniture would look like in your home by visualizing it for you. There are other AR applications on the App Store of course, and you should definitely try them out if given the chance! Hopefully Apple’s ARKit will help AR to develop into something greater than what it currently is.

 2. Apple Pay Upgrades

The iOS 11 update brought Apple Pay compatibility to messages. So now you don’t have to use third party applications or use cash to pay back a friend or coworker who went out to get your lunch. Once your Apple Pay account receives the funds, you can transfer it back to your bank account or use it in the App Store.

3. More Apple Pencil Support

For the artsy, or those who use Apple Pencil for other uses, there are some nice improvements in this update. Users can now draw images in an inline drawing mode, meaning users can draw images between paragraphs of text. The Notes App has also been improved to be better able to find handwritten notes.

These are just a few of the features added to improve the user experience in iOS 11. There are a lot of other articles on the web if you are seeking additional information about features added to iOS 11. Happy Holidays!
