Galaxy Book 2 Hands-on: Meet Samsung’s Surface Pro Killer
I had a chance to go hands-on with this 2-in-1, which includes a keyboard and pen (unlike the Surface Pro 6). The Super AMOLED display and design look great, and there's some special goodness here for Galaxy phone owners. But the jury is out on the performance of the Snpadragon 850 chip.

Surface Laptop 2 Hands-on: Forget the MacBook
With a cushy 1.5 mm keyboard, speedy quad-core 8th gen CPU and up to 15 hours of rated battery life, the Surface Laptop 2 could be the ultraportable to beat.

Surface Pro 6 Review: The Best 2-in-1 Just Got Better
The new Surface Pro 6 (starting at $899, $1,428.98 as tested) lasted nearly 2 hours longer on our battery test than its predecessor while delivering a lot more speed via its 8th-generation quad-core Core i5 processor. The lack of USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports continues to be a bummer, but overall, this is easily the best tablet for work and play.

The new Palm is a tiny phone to keep you away from your phone - The Verge
It is a weird little thing. The Palm phone is a device that you can add on to your Verizon plan, which shares your phone number. It’s a phone designed for you to use on the weekends, when you’re going out for the evening, or just generally when you want to be a little less distracted by your big phone with all its apps.

Microsoft Spills Foldable Andromeda Secrets in New Patent
According to the patent, without this mechanism the display will feel mushy, something that Samsung also pointed out in their own patent for the Galaxy X. Like the Korean mechanism, Microsoft’s patent will hold the screen in place mechanically, making it feel solid rather than getting pushed down by any pressure exerted by your finger or pen.

2019 may very well be the year of the foldable thingamajig, and I’m all for that.

Google's Pixel Slate Wants to Replace Your Laptop
Google is touting the Pixel Slate as a productivity machine, which is a claim a lot of 2-in-1s make. But Google seems ready to put its money where its mouth is. The Pixel Slate will run the desktop version of Chrome OS. Google claims that you'll have the ability to run developer tools and even Linux. And since it's a tablet, Chrome OS has been optimized for touch.

Facebook announces Portal, an Echo Show rival focused on video chat - The Verge
Facebook will start selling the Portal in November, with the smaller model selling for $199 and the Portal Plus selling for $349. Facebook will also be offering $100 off if you buy two at a time, and it seems to be hoping people will pick up a pair of Portals, then hand one to a relative they want to stay in touch with. Like much about the product, it’s not a bad idea — so long as you’re okay with it all being tied back to Facebook.

LG’s Watch W7 is a $450 hybrid Wear OS smartwatch with mechanical hands - The Verge
The W7 isn’t a replacement for a fitness tracker; there’s no heart rate sensor inside this hardware. Nor does it have built-in GPS or LTE connectivity. It’s a no-fluff Wear OS device that puts traditional watch form over extended functionality. I could excuse those things, but the W7 also lacks NFC and thus doesn’t even support Google Pay. For $450, that’s an unacceptably long list of things that LG chose to omit.

HP Spectre Folio Hands-On: A Stunning Leather 2-in-1
The leather construction allows the Spectre Folio to fold into several different modes: closed, traditional laptop, and tablet. Unique to the Spectre Folio is what HP calls the "forward" orientation, where the display pops out and leans toward the user. To keep the display in place, HP used 40 magnets along the base of the laptop and on top of the screen. I had no issues moving the display into different modes, and the hinges felt sturdy in every orientation.

The OnePlus 6T will allegedly have a 6.2 x 3 x 0.32-inch aluminum and glass body holding a 6.4-inch AMOLED 2,340 x 1,080 display with a tiny teardrop for the selfie camera on top — not good, but better than a fat notch. Under the display, a fingerprint reader.

Yubico YubiKey 5 NFC Review & Rating | PCMag.com
The fifth generation of the YubiKey supports FIDO U2F for a secure second-factor authentication and uses NFC to work with your phone. But that's just the start of what this remarkably powerful, and remarkably tiny, device can do. If you're just looking for a simple hardware U2F option, the YubiKey 5 NFC is probably overkill—consider the more affordable Security Key by Yubico or the Google Titan Security Keys instead. But if you're already steeped in security wonkiness, you'll love what the 5 NFC has to offer.

Apple Watch Series 4 Review: The Best Smartwatch, Now Even Better
Apple doubles down on that promise with the Series 4. The newest watch ticks the usual upgrade boxes: bigger, brighter display, thinner case, faster processor, more advanced sensors. But it’s the Series 4’s health features that bring it closer to fulfilling Apple’s vision of a truly indispensable device. It’s still not perfect. But it’s oh so close. It’s also oh so expensive
