January 9, 2016 at 12:30
We said last Sunday when we talked about the presentations that we could expect to take place this year in CES Las Vegas that there had not been too many leaks that could put us on the track of the new phablets and tablets that were going to debut there but we were sure that we were going to take a few surprises and, indeed, that has been the case: reviewing everything that the event has left us, we can verify that we are finally leaving with a good number of new interesting devices, especially for fans of Windows, although there has also been good news for those of Android.
Galaxy TabPro S
No doubt the big star of Las Vegas, at least as far as tablets are concerned, has been the Samsung's new professional tablet, the first in a long time that the company launches with the Microsoft operating system and an undoubtedly difficult rival for which it is still the leader of the category, the Surface Pro 4, at least for the most basic version of this: it is true that Redmond’s tablet supports much more powerful settings than Koreans, but the basic models of both are quite close in technical specifications and factors such as price or design may cause more than one to end up leaning towards the latter. If you want to know her better, we have already had the chance to throw him even a look at video.
Samsung's has not been the only professional tablet with Windows 10 that has seen the light in Las Vegas: Lenovo, one of the most prolific manufacturers in this field and we have already known a few models that run with the latest version of the Microsoft operating system, has added one more to the list, the ThinkPad X1, probably the one that is destined to compete more directly with the Surface Pro 4 of them all, with a design that is quite reminiscent of this one (mainly due to the back support that allows it to be held alone vertically without a keyboard) and thanks to Very good technical specifications (with notable improvements in RAM and storage capacity compared to the Miix 700, for example).
Pixi 3 with Windows 10
In recent times we are meeting many new tablets with Windows 10 and, as you can see, at CES we have had a good portion of them, but practically all of them are professional tablets and, as such they tend to be at the top of the scale as far as prices are concerned. Fortunately, Alcatel has left us a pleasant surprise in Las Vegas, with a device that lets us enjoy the Windows experience on a screen of 8 inches and with a much more price affordable: the new Pixi 3 It is a basic range tablet with Windows 10 for mobile phones that can be obtained for only $ 200.
Huawei Mate 8
It is not really a novelty because of course we already take advantage of its debut in China to give you a preview of what the new high-end phablet from Huawei, but its passage through Las Vegas has meant, at least officially, its international presentation and with it has taken place your arrival at stores in our country and the prices have turned out to be really tempting, considering that they are around 600 euros and we are talking about a phablet with 6-inch screen, with metal casing and a new generation processor. Are you thinking of getting him? If so, we remind you that we have some first impressions on video also with him.
MediaPad 10 M2
If the professional tablets do not fall within your budget or if you simply prefer Android, the CES of Las Vegas has also left some news that may interest you and again comes from the hand of Huawei: the MediaPad 10 M2 It is a tablet with technical specifications of high-middle range which is emerging as an especially interesting option for those of you who use their tablets especially as multimedia devices, to listen to music and watch movies and series, since, in addition to a great screen 10 inches With Full HD resolution, it has an audio system with four speakers. At hands on with the Huawei Mate 8 You can take a look at it too.
Low-cost Android phablets and tablets
The Pixi 3 is a great option for those who are looking for an affordable Windows tablet, but also those who are looking for Android devices with good prices have where to put their teeth among the novelties of the CES in Las Vegas: on the one hand, Alcatel has presented us with new Pixi 4, and among them we have a phablet with a screen of nothing less than 6 inches, in addition to one Pixi 4 Tablet with screen 7 inches, and the two arrive with Android Marshmallow; for another, Acer a new version of the Iconia One 8, although it does not leave any notable innovation with respect to the previous ones; and finally, the low-cost manufacturer Blu He has left us two new phablets from the Vivo range, which will be sold for less than 200 euros.
