Looks like you didn't have to wait long for ASUS' ZenPad S 8.0 to show up in the US -- Best Buy is now selling the 8-inch Android 5.1 slate for an easy-to-swallow $200. While this isn't the highest-end version (it's carrying 'just' 2GB of RAM and a slower 1.33GHz Atom chip) it's far from a slouch...

Computex? More like ASUStex, amirite? Like last year, the Taiwan-based company used the 2015 show as its personal product launchpad, revealing selfie phones, smartwatches, tablets, hybrid laptops, all-in-ones, tiny projectors, 4K monitors and a transforming PC case, for crying out loud. If you're...

What your tablet lacks isn't NFC or a fingerprint reader. It's a pop-up case that houses six speakers (with subwoofer), and support for 5.1 channel surround sound. Maybe? ASUS says it will output six times the volume of the base tablet, and packs enough power to annoy neighbors for up to six hours...

These will come in 7-inch, 8-inch and 10.1-inch flavors with cellular variants, but it's the light, yet powerful ZenPad S 8.0 that's caught our attentio...

We didn't want to get sucked into this whole Enso debacle, but our first post on the company and its too good to be true zenPad resulted in a flurry of warnings about unsatisfied customers and never-appearing shipments. After numerous delays we finally got one to try out -- and a sad, sorry review u...

For the price, there's nothing truly terrible about the SMiT MID-560A touchscreen tablet. If you've never held an Android device, you might even be pleasantly surprised with the functionality on offer. But if you have -- or if you bought yours from a company called Enso and became embroiled in a va...

Hey folks, it's just come to our attention that Enso -- a French Italian startup that received notoriety for selling vaporware tablets -- has been using Engadget's good name to convince irate customers that its product actually exists. We gave Enso the benefit of the doubt at first, but let's put t...

With only 500 units ordered and 30 scheduled to ship on May 8th, it's clear the Enso zenPad won't blow up the world, but it's nice to see a startup make good on its promises. We've yet to receive one of the cheap Android tablets ourselves, but we do finally have proof they're on the way: Enso CEO A...

If so, you'll be happy to hear that the company has decided on a concrete release date; its website is now ticking down the days, hours, minutes and seconds until May 8th, when Enso claims they'll finally ship the rebranded Smit MID. Problem is, if you ordered your zenP...
