Android tablets have been around for almost as long as Android phones at this point, but Google’s long treated the platform as something of an afterthought. But with a growing number of foldables that work as both phones and tablets (and with a new Pixel tablet coming next year), the company has promised to update many of its key apps to support devices with larger screens.

And today the company unveiled updates for Workspace apps including Google Drive, Sheets, Slides, Keep, and Chrome that should make them a little more useful on tablets and other larger devices.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

  1. Anyone have any new info on the AYANEO SLIDE or FLIP (assuming it has a keyboard)? Those are the only non-Deck handhelds I’m interested in right now.

    1. I am on their discord server and I can assure you that nothing is available about either. There was a video presentation a couple of weeks ago which should the sliding mechanism and that the next II will have a discrete GPU but nothing since.

      1. Thanks. The last info I had was that mockup. Looks like nothing new.

        I hope development of the Slide or a keyboard (my assumption) Flip is going well. For me, they’re the only handhelds I’d buy when I already have a Steam Deck.

    2. I hope we’ll see some info soonish. They claimed both were Q4 2022 devices. Although that seemed optimistic looking at what they’ve shown (or more not shown) so far.

    3. I really hope the Slide turns out well. It’d be great when GPD isn’t the only option when it comes to handhelds with keyboards.
