Really enjoy these. Looking forward to this one, mainly for the tablet bit.
So, landscape view is coming?
Looking forward to listing tomorrow morning.
Overall I like the idea and appwise I am not too worried, with one notable exception. W10 has crap for ereader support, Nook and Kindle are going or gone, only Kobo still has a W10M version left.
Convert them via Calibre (but sharing = piracy) and use BookVisor to read the converted books -- it is quite a nice app. How about starting some GitHub projects (or suggesting to others) for Windows 10 Mobile and do community development? I would like a really good book reader app and a really good Bible app.
Try LightReader from the Store. It's probably the best ebook reader on W10M and W10 (it's a UWP app). Really good stuff.
It's weird that they're not supporting Kindle on W10M, yet their Audible app is still going quite strongly.
you can use the kindle webapp
I read recently Edge is gaining ePub reader capabilities. An Kindle, although not as great as in other platforms, still works reasonably well. The most important thing is to be able to read, isn't it?
Kindle, you can use the WebApp
There are three type over there, phone, phable and tablet .... I just wonder how UWP can handle them. Right now phone have big issue here!!!
The OS seems really fluid on the phablet, despite of the modest specs!!! Very impressive. I wouldn't mind this device. Well done and hopefully more companies are willing to take these bold steps, as well as costumers taking advantage of these new options.
I've been waiting for a good win10 Mobile tablet... I think I'll keep waiting, but I really hope other OEMs jump on board... And I wish Microsoft would support a bit later screens.
I watched the podcast after I watched the reviews. It would be better to do it in reverse. Zac sounds kind of under the weather when he shows us the Cube 10. He does a thorough job but his flow needs work, while he's rocking his Vector smartwatch in all it's glory. I know he might want to give an authentic first hand impression but not knowing the device causes him to change the tone of his voice and trail off.
You guys do us a great favor keeping us updated with the goings on with Microsoft especially the not so publicized things that would keep all things Windows relevant. If only you could give a little more notice with the podcast.
Thanks, Happy Thanksgiving.
Ps. Sorry for the run on sentence I'm kind of multi-tasking.
W10Mobile is more fun on a Tablet than W10
That mobile tablet looks quite cool actually :p
This looks like a mi max with windows 10
