With WiFi-6 rollout in full swing, industry leaders like Netgear are launching new hardware at CES to cover several use cases.As you may have seen from our previous reporting, we think that mesh networking and WiFi 6 are the two most important things that happened around WiFi in the past ten years.
Back in the day, if you wanted to extend the range of your WiFi from your router, you would need to buy range extenders. While range extenders are still very much around, a new and more popular alternative these days is to get yourself a mesh router. This is because unlike range extenders that can reduce the speed when it bounces, mesh routers will help maintain the signal strength.
If you have a big home where you’re finding a lot of dead spots when it comes to WiFi, then it might be time to start investing in a mesh WiFi system. In case you’re unfamiliar, a mesh WiFi system basically allows users to create a blanket of WiFi in their home. Unlike WiFi extenders, which can sometimes degrade the performance, mesh systems will help to maintain the speeds.
Netgear’s Orbi mesh system has been one of the most celebrated Wi-Fi 5 setup last year, and during CES 2019, the company had hinted that a Wi-Fi 6 version was coming. Orbi Wi-Fi 6 (Orbi WiFi 6 System AX6000, model RBK852) has finally landed at IFA / Berlin, and it is as powerful as we had hoped.
Built as a “Productivity” laptop, the Yoga C740 also comes in 14” and 15” versions. As you can imagine, the 15.6” version has a little bit more battery life, but with only an estimated 1.3 hours more, it may not make that big of a difference to buyers who will likely choose based on size.
Yoga C940: The New Lenovo Consumer ChampionEditor's Pick
IFA is where Lenovo announces the high-end Yoga laptop refresh, and this year, the Lenovo Yoga C940 (14”+15”) takes on the role of luxury consumer laptop, replacing the Yoga C930 announced at IFA 2018 and reviewed a bit later on Ubergizmo.
Wi-Fi is entering a refresh period, perhaps the most important since its creation. Wi-Fi 6 promises to improve range and performance for new, but also existing devices. Also, it can sustainably manage the proliferation of connected devices.
#IFA19 Just in time for IFA 2019, Dell is updating its award-winning XPS 13 ultramobile laptop with Intel’s latest 10th generation processor, including a 6-cores Core i7 option.
In the consumer space, CPU platforms are mostly about performance/price ratios, but enterprises have a different view of where value is, and that includes security.
Samsung just launched the Galaxy S10 in our beautiful city of San Francisco, a first for a Samsung Unpacked event. The Galaxy S10 line has four handsets, and we listed all the differences between the S10e, S10, S10+ and S10 5G.
Samsung just launched the Samsung Galaxy S10 (or Galaxy series 10) line-up and it nearly covers the complete spectrum of the high-end market, with something for everyone.
While on the surface the iPhone XS doesn’t seem too different compared to the iPhone X, there are changes made under the hood that some might not have noticed. For example Apple included three new radio technologies in which tests have found that it improved upon LTE speeds.
Not all wireless routers are made equal. While they will, for the most part, help you cover your home or office in WiFi, sometimes the speeds you get can vary from router to router. For those who are looking to harness the latest in WiFi technology, you might be interested to learn that TP-Link has announced two new routers.
