10 best iPad Air 2 cases 2015

Besti Pad2 Cases

 

Apple released the iPad Air 2 to great fanfare in October last year, bettering its predecessor by shaving off precious millimetres to take it down to a dizzying 6.1mm thick; improving the screen’s colour and fidelity; including the Touch ID sensor, and bumping up the power with Apple’s latest A8X chip to round off the winning package.

 

Unlike previous iPads, the iPad Air 2 has exactly the same bezel sizes, but the thinner form means that many cases compatible with the original iPad Air simply won’t fit the new model.

 

With the new svelte form and lighter weight of just 437g, you’ll no doubt be tempted to whip it out at any available moment, so keeping that beautiful aluminium shell and glass screen protected is even more crucial than ever.

iPad mini 3 vs iPad mini 2

0
iPadMini2-Press-05-970-80[1]It was only a few short weeks ago that Apple introduced us to its first ever ‘phablet’ – the oversized iPhone 6 Plus. With its 5.5-inch screen and tablet-alike features, some would argue that Apple has bitten into its own market by taking away many of the reasons that would make Apple fans want to own both an iPhone and a 7.9-inch iPad.

 

There are, of course, fans of Apple’s diminutive tablet out there that might currently own an ageing Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire HD, and who aren’t operating-system bias. For them, and Apple fans-alike, the lure of a shiny new tablet may be too tempting to avoid.

Guest View: Thoughts on the next iPad Mini

0

gold-ipad-mini-2Tablet PCs are currently the ‘in thing’, and because Apple is well known for the expense of their products many were shocked when they announced the iPad Mini this time last year– a smaller and more affordable version of the iPad. If rumours are true, then the Californian tech giant is planning to announce a second-gen model at an event expected to be held on October 15.  As it’s been highly rumoured throughout the whole year, I have some very high expectations for it.
Read on, to find out what they are.

Parallels Access for iPad

0

IMG_4240I’ve used most variants of tablet on the market, from the iPads to Windows 8 devices and every Android offering in between.  My main bugbear with the iPad and Android tablets though are that they are pretty useless for content creation.  This is where Windows comes in a lot stronger, and is why most cannot yet give up their home computer in favour of a tablet.  To fill this void the new app Parallels Access provides a neat solution to having access to your deskstop applications on the move.

Vodafone Smart Tab II

2

IMG_3271 copyThe head-honcho at TechNow has nervously given me the new affordable 7” tablet from Vodafone to review. The last time I handled anything made by Vodafone, it could only make calls, had a battery life of around one week and an external aerial that you could chew on. The Vodafone Smart Tab II looks anything but vintage and is also very affordable. Over the past week I have been using the Smart Tab to show you that it’s not just a huge smart phone with no ability to make calls.

1st prize consists of an STM Vertical Bag and an iPad Org Board (though it fits other 10″ tablets too)  4 runner-ups will also receive an STM Org Board each, so it’s well worth the little time required to enter this latest competition!

Motorola Xoom 2 10.1 Wi-Fi – Review

1

By now it should be evident that I am a supporter of Android, but even I know the experiences can vary greatly. Over the last few weeks I’ve been taking a look at the Motorola Xoom 2 to see how it compares to the original Xoom as well as other tablet devices. Motorola seems to be heading in the right direction and unlike many tablets currently available it has taken a clearly different design directive, but is there much more to this tablet than that?

STM Scout 2 10″ Tablet Bag – Review

0

I’ve never considered myself particularly fashionable, and usually I leave the house with my pockets bulging with the gadgets, bits and pieces I need.  I don’t carry around a tablet as much as I perhaps would like and so when I was afforded the opportunity to look at the new STM Scout 2 10″  tablet bag, I thought I better give this ‘man bag’ a thorough going over!

Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 – Review

0

April was a big month for mobile Google devices, it was to see the UK launch of the Motorola Xoom, widely touted as the UK’s first Android ‘Honeycomb’ 3.0 tablet.  Most people however failed noticed Asus sneak in under the radar and give an early release to their first tablet running the new OS: The Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 (to give it its full name).

Motorola Xoom (wi-fi) – First Impressions

Motorola Xoom Tablet

So in my last week at a ‘large UK electrical retailer’ I managed to get some hands on time with a Motorola Xoom from the rather pretty Moto rep.

I thought seeing as I’d had an early preview I would share my thoughts with you guys prior to it’s exclusive launch in DSG stores hopefully on April 9th. My initial impression is that nearly every aspect of this device competes very strongly with the iPad, and in many cases betters it.

Generic Tech Store...

In a world where new items of technology are released on an almost daily basis, have the companies lost sight of their consumers?
