The Disappearing Android Tablet

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

Back in January, I wondered what happened to the Android tablets. I wanted a new one, but the offerings were (and continue to be) quite thin. I settled upon the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, and I’m not disappointed with it, but it’s still the newest offering at over a year old. What’s going on?
