Nokia returns to tablets with the Nokia T20

Specs and price revealed



Are you ready for the second coming of tablets? After a marked decline, several tech companies are starting to push for better tablets. Nokia, after teasing their own re-entry into the market, has finally launched its own tablet after a long hiatus, the Nokia T20.

After years of resurrecting its feature phones, Nokia started building up its smartphone lineup, fully pushing it as a modern brand. Now, after proving itself in that realm, the brand is now bringing that same Nokia smartphone experience again to a larger form factor.

The 10.4-inch Nokia T20 will put out images in 2K (2000 x 1200) resolution. Underneath its smooth chassis, the tablet sports a T610 octa-core processor. It has up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage (expandable by up to 512GB through a microSD slot). Powering everything is an 8200mAh battery fit with a 15W charger.

Behind everything, you can shoot photos with an 8-megapixel auto-focus camera. In front, you can take selfie with a 5-megapixel selfie shooter. It has several connectivity options including USB-C, Bluetooth 5.0, and a headphone jack.

It comes with Android 11 out of the box. The tablet will also come with some freebies: Spotify and a free 30-day trial of ExpressVPN. It can also come with some durable accessories like the Rugged cover and the Flip cover.

The Nokia T20 tablet will be available starting on November 17 in an Ocean Blue color starting at US$ 249.99.

Editor’s note: A previous version of the article claimed that the Nokia T20 was the brand’s first tablet. In fact, the Nokia N1 came before the T20. We regret the error.

Foldable iPad coming in 2024, report says

With a carbon fiber kickstand



Only a few things are as mythical as Apple’s first foldable device. For years, Apple has reportedly worked on foldable technology in hopes of eventually releasing an iPhone or an iPad with the form factor. Now, years later, more and more reports are revealing optimistic developments for the company’s first set of foldable devices.

According to a new one from Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will likely release the first foldable iPad sometime in 2024. With the new device, the company hopes to revamp the iPad lineup, releasing a more varied mix to boost shipments.

Additionally, Kuo states that the device will come with a carbon fiber kickstand. Besides offering a unique form factor for the lineup, the kickstand’s material will also decrease the device’s weight, making for a lighter iPad.

It’s still some time away from now. Even if Kuo hit the nail on the head with this report, Apple can still change plans between now and 2024. Besides an iPad, the company is also reportedly working on a foldable iPhone to take on Samsung’s dominance in the industry. However, like the enigmatic iPad, not much is known about the foldable iPhone. Given the increasing abundance of reports about the foldable lineup, we will likely learn more as the year progresses.

Lenovo expands Yoga lineup for CES 2023

Featuring the Yoga Book 9i



Besides an extensive lineup of traditional notebooks, Lenovo also flexes its chops with the flexible Yoga lineup. For years, the company has presented its own expansive lineup of hybrid devices. For CES 2023, Lenovo has revealed more devices in the lineup including the Yoga Book 9i, the Yoga AIO 9i, the Tab Extreme, and the Smart Paper.

Yoga Book 9i

Heading the wolfpack, the Yoga Book 9i sparkles in all its glory as the first full-size dual-screen OLED laptop. In essence, the notebook bolts two 13.3-inch tablets together with a flexible hinge. Both screens put out images in 2.8K resolution and 100 percent DCI-P3 color accuracy. The hinge revolves for the full 360 degrees, enabling usability in laptop, tablet, or tent modes.

Inside, the notebook comes with the 13th-generation Intel Core i7-U15, Iris X GPU, 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and up to 1TB of internal storage. It will have Bowers & Wilkins speakers and Dolby Atmos support. It will also sport 80WHr of battery life.

The Yoga Book 9i will start at US$ 2,099.99 and will come out in June.

Yoga AIO 9i

Outside of the notebook arena, the Yoga lineup will also have an update for the AIO desktop space. The Yoga AIO 9i packs in an impressive suite of specs inside a flexible frame. Using the flexible hinge, the device can rotate to the desired angle.

The AIO desktop offers a lot for desktop users, too. Inside its 31.5-inch UHD screen, it carries up to the 13th-generation Intel Core i9-13900H. It will also come with a “next-gen NVIDIA GeForce GPU,” up to 32GB of RAM, and up to 1TB of internal storage. It will also have a built-in 5-megapixel IR camera.

The Yoga AIO 9i will start shipping in the third quarter for US$ 1,799.99 as a starting price.

Lenovo Tab Extreme

As always, the Yoga lineup will come with a more traditional tablet device. The Lenovo Tab Extreme showcases a 14.5-inch OLED screen with 3000 x 1876 resolution and 120Hz refresh rate.

Inside, the tablet touts a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset, 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of internal storage. It will also come with two 13-megapixel cameras — one in front and one in the back. The device will be powered by a 12300mAh battery compatible with 68W charging. Further, the dual-mode stand allows for several modes of use, including different orientations.

The Lenovo Tab Extreme will start at US$ 1,199.99 and will ship later this year.

Lenovo Smart Paper

A more unconventional entry, the Lenovo Smart Paper is an e-Ink tablet perfect for notetaking. Featuring a large 10.3-inch, anti-glare e-Ink display, users can take notes with the Lenovo Smart Paper Pen, a stylus with only 23-millisecond latency.

Inside, the device comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It can reportedly take over 50,000 pages of notes inside its storage. Finally, it will also have 3550mAh of battery.

The Lenovo Smart Paper will sell for US$ 399.99 and will start shipping later this year.
