This is a surmise, not a prediction, but I’m finding it hard to imagine Microsoft’s new Surface 3 tablet PC will not be a game-changer.

Tablets are in a period of evolutionary growth, with each successive model just a bit better than its predecessor. But revolutionary change is on the horizon, with the first signs of it on display at the Consumer Electronics Show last week.

ZTE has cut down prices for a bunch of their smartphones in China recently, including Nubia Z5, Nubia X6, etc. Some might say ZTE is getting ready to launch the Nubia Z9 smartphone that has been leaked recently, though that doesn’t have to be the case, of course.
