Tablets springing forth

Spring ushers in a refreshing new season of flowering trees and blossoming shrubs, but it also indicates a wave of new tech to look forward to. Check out the tablets we expect to see hit stores soon.

Sony Xperia Z4

Price: TBD

Availability: Late Spring

The outlook: The Xperia Z4 tablet continues the important Sony tradition of pairing a slim and trim build with a waterproof construction. At 10-inches, it's not exactly the most portable tablet, but its skinny construction is the equivalent to carrying around a thin notebook.

Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 300

Price:$149

Availability: July 2015

The outlook: Taking the step into investing in a portable Windows workspace just got easier. The IdeaPad Miix 300 is an affordably priced 8-inch model with a simple look.

Jolla tablet

Price:$249

Availability: Early Kickstarter backers should receive their tablet soon. It will be available for the general public by the end of the year.

The outlook: The highly-anticipated Jolla tablet is a breath of fresh air. It runs a unique operating system, called Sailboat, that uses multiple hand gestures for navigation. So far Kickstarter backers will be the first to get their hands on one, but it'll be available for the public soon.

Lenovo Tab 2 A8

Price:$129

Availability: The A8 should hit stores in June.

The outlook: Look out for this Lenovo tablet. Not only is it priced to sell, but it's also one of the most wallet-friendly tablets running a pure version of Android.

Lenovo Tab 2 A10

Price:$199

Availability: April 2015

The outlook: This Lenovo tablet doesn't rock a vanilla flavor of Android, but it's still a bargain buy. It packs a pair of Dolby-powered speakers that sound impressive than most tablets when it comes to watching movies and listening to music.

Huawei MediaPad X2

Price: TBD

Availability: TBD

The outlook: Technically, this is a phablet. However, sitting at 7-inches, I'm going to qualify it as more of a tablet. It features full cellular capabilities, however it's sleek design is what truly makes the MediaPad X2 an attractive buy.
