Amazon might not be your first choice for your tablet needs, as it doesn’t have the same fashionable appeal as Apple, but they’re showing off some brand new tablets to catch your eye. Many of the tablets that have been released by Amazon before usually get very good reviews. This time, instead of just releasing one tablet, they’ve decided to release a few in order to compete with the rest of the models on the market. They’ve made the decision to cover just about every type of tablet that you would want to own. Everything from the top of the line to the very affordable “economy” tablets. The one that everyone will be watching is definitely their flagship Kindle Fire HDX 8.9

Kindle Fire HDX 8.9

kindle hdxThe updated version of the tablet has a lot more to offer performance wise, or so says Amazon. The tablet still has the same dimensions as its original predecessor. It’s still 8.9 inches and 13.2 ounces, and still smaller and lighter than the iPad Air that many people still swear by. The updated tablet will be housing a brand new Qualcomm quad core Snapdragon 805 processor and a sleek, new Arduino 450 GPU. This will give much better all around performance and even be able to offer “console-quality gaming”, or so says Amazon. The display on the new model is even better than the last time around and still better than the Air as well. The new model will be sporting a 2560×1600 pixel resolution display, and the tablet’s ppi is set at 339. If you’re unfamiliar with that term, it means “pixels per inch”. The Air is only at 2048×1536 pixel resolution and running at 264 ppi. Needless to say, the Kindle Fire beats it in the display department, hands down.

They Didn’t Forget The Software

If you have new technology, you can’t have it without some new software right? Don’t worry, cause Amazon has you covered. The new tablet is working with Android KitKat, but that operating system will eventually move to the mobile OS. This is where the upgrade comes into play. The Fire OS 4.0 will be seeing a host of new features with its update. Tablet users will now be able to access the cloud-based Firefly service that was first released on the Fire Phone. The Firefly service will be able to work with the tablet’s camera in order to identify a large number of items, like movies and TV shows. The tablet will later be able to use a new app called Translation. By opening Firefly, and as long as the internet connection permits, you will be able to point the camera at any text that appears in a different language, and it will translate it right there on the spot. The new software definitely has some sweet little perks to it.

It Wouldn’t Be Complete Without An Additional Keyboard

amazonThat’s right. Following suit with what seems to be the big trend now, the new tablet will also offer a separate additional keyboard. Obviously it won’t come with the new tablet, but it will only be a $60 investment should you want to go that route. The keyboard is only 7 ounces and 4.8 mm thick. The keyboard, however isn’t attachable. It’s actually ran through Bluetooth which could be both good and bad depending on how you look at it. Unless you plan on being extra productive or plan on using it for gaming, there shouldn’t be any real need for the keyboard however. That being said, the trend is big enough for Amazon to take notice and add it to their tablets.

Amazon knows that they’re not exactly on the top of the tablet game, but they’re doing a good job making a nice selection of tablets to cover all of their bases. Even if you like Apple, you can’t help but take notice of Amazon’s efforts.

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? An iPad rental is only a phone call away! Contact www.RentOurTablets.com At 888-736-8301 Today.

galaxy tab sAs the tablet wars continue to rage on, we, as the consumers, have front row seats to everything. We and our wallets are the main goals for all of the tablet companies out there. Each one of them is trying to make the absolute best tablet they can in order to gain our loyalty. It’s almost sweet if you think about it. It’s not news to anyone, however, where most of the mass market consumer loyalty lies. Apple has the biggest share of that pie without a doubt. While I’m constantly stating that it is due to Apple’s popularity and the fact that they can be viewed as a fashion statement, I also know that their products are actually very good (I have a MacBook Pro and iPhone). Their biggest competitor, Samsung, may have just thrown the biggest blow towards them that any company has ever thrown yet; a tablet that can actually stand up to the iPad Air and iPad Mini With Retina Display.

In case you’ve yet to see, Samsung recently stepped up their game with the reveal of their new flagship tablet; The Galaxy Tab S.  This new tablet is Samsung’s answer to the iPad Air and iPad Mini. I guess you could say it’s their answer to Apple’s iPad, period. They’ve put just about everything they have into this new tablet. One thing that Samsung had to say about their new product was that they didn’t want to make another tablet that offered things that the iPad didn’t offer. They knew that people were buying the iPad still for a reason. Instead of utilizing ideals that Apple can’t offer, they’ve decided to offer some of the same things that the iPad Air and iPad Mini With Retina offer. To be quite honest with you, some of the specs are actually better than Apple’s. Some of Samsung’s software features even outshine Apple’s.

The Tab S is actually thinner than both the iPad Mini With Retina Display and the iPad Air. The Tab S comes in an 8.4 inch version, and a 10.5 inch version. Both of these versions of the Tab S offer the same inner workings and are actually slightly bigger than the iPad Air and iPad Mini. Both the rear-facing and front-facing cameras offer more megapixels on the Tab S than they do with either the iPad Air or iPad Mini as well. While the camera might not be a big deal, consider this; the displays on the Tab S are better the Air and the Mini as well, so you might be able to tell! The Tab S offers a 2,560 x 1,600 pixel display where as the Air and Mini With Retina only offer a 2,048 x 1,536 display. The other one-up that Samsung has over Apple with their new tablet is the fact that they support microSD storage, where as the Mini With Retina and Air don’t. Samsung has made sure to not hold anything back with this new release.

This is where the consumer ultimately gains the advantage no matter what. While there may be a few Apple heads out there (present, and accounted for), Samsung is offering a very nice alternative, priced to match Apple. So while these two giants are at war with each other, we still reap the spoils.

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.
