A brief history of Android tablets: From galaxies to gravestones

<p><a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/nexusae0_front.jpg" class=" no-style"><img class="alignnone size-hero-size wp-image-490470" src="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/nexusae0_front-728x395.jpg" alt="" width="668" height="362" /></a></p> <p>The year was 2010, and Apple made good on the rumor mill's predictions when it unveiled the iPad. This device was, essentially, a bigger iPhone without the phone part. It turns out that consumers were into that sort of thing, and the first modern tablet sold in huge numbers. Not to be outdone, Android OEMs began launching Android-powered slates. For a time, it seemed like Android tablets would be a thing, but sales slumped, and most current Android tablets are ultra-low-cost junk.<div class="clear"></div> <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/05/06/brief-history-android-tablets-galaxies-gravestones/" class="read-more">Read More</a></p><p><a href='https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/05/06/brief-history-android-tablets-galaxies-gravestones/'>A brief history...

At the event, many of the products and services Google's has planned for the near-future get shown off all at once in a short but intense explosion of technology.

MoviePass competitor Sinemia now starts at $4.99 per month, but with caveats

<p style="text-align: center"><a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/sinemia-app-screenshots-logo.png" class=" no-style"><img class="alignnone size-hero-size wp-image-490522" src="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/sinemia-app-screenshots-logo-728x344.png" alt="" width="668" height="316" /></a></p> <p>By giving more than 2 million customers a way to see multiple movies in theaters each month at a discounted price, MoviePass is disrupting the cinema industry in a big way. While not nearly as much of a household name, Sinemia is vying to do the same. With new subscription plans starting at lower prices and boasting features that its rival doesn't offer, Sinemia may seem like an appealing alternative — and it may be for some types of moviegoers.<div class="clear"></div> <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/05/06/moviepass-competitor-sinemia-now-starts-4-99-per-month-caveats/" class="read-more">Read More</a></p><p><a href='https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/05/06/moviepass-competitor-sinemia-now-starts-4-99-per-month-caveats/'>MoviePass competitor...
