The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, designated SM-X906N, is listed in Geekbench 5 database. The top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 SoC is attributed to the device, but the performance is still poor. 1215 points in a single-threaded test and 3159 points in a multi-threaded one – this is approximately the level of Snapdragon 888. However, as the platform and drivers are improved, the performance should increase to a level corresponding to the flagship solution.

For some reason Samsung doesn’t want to make its tablets waterproof and dustproof. The Galaxy Tab S8 lineup won’t get this much

Samsung is not going to add tablets to its range of water-resistant devices.

Now the manufacturer offers more rugged devices in different segments than competitors. These are new flexible flagships, regular flagships, and mid-budget models Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72. More affordable models with water and dust resistance will appear next year.

But for some reason Samsung does not want to make protected tablets. According to the source, next year the situation in this segment will not change. The Galaxy Tab S8 line of flagship tablets will not receive protection from water and dust, and there is no need to talk about more affordable models. Tablets are often used in the kitchen when cooking or in the bathroom, and here the protection would come in handy, but for now it will not be there. At one time, Sony offered protected tablets, but the company left this market.

Experts of the analytical company Canalys have summed up the results of the third quarter of 2021 in one of the most important world markets for ready-made PCs – the American one. This market situation reflects the overall picture of the global PC market, which Canalys includes desktops, laptops, tablets and workstations.

In the third quarter of 2021, 30.3 million systems of these categories were sold in the United States, which is 16% less than in the third quarter of 2020.

Notebook shipments totaled 17.1 million units, down 15% year on year. This is due to the sharp drop in Chromebook sales as the education market has reached saturation. Tablet shipments fell 24% to 10.0 million units. Analysts attribute this to a decline in consumer demand. Desktop computers stand out against this background – their shipments grew by 6% and reached 3.2 million units. According to experts, this is due to the return of workers to offices and an increase in purchases in the corporate segment.

Dell was # 1 in the US PC market in the third quarter. It increased sales by 10.4%, which led to an increase in Dell’s share from 22.3% to 27.6%. At the same time, HP, ranked second, reduced sales by 30.7%, which resulted in a decrease in its share from 33.4% to 26.0%. Ranked third, Lenovo increased sales by 2.9%. Its share increased from 15.0% to 17.4%. This is followed by Apple, which reduced sales by 13.7%. Apple’s share fell from 11.9% to 11.6%. Acer closes the top five. It reduced sales by 31.1%, which led to a decrease in its share from 5.6% to 4.4%.
