More Diverging Technology

I've been looking for a tablet lately to replace an old Nexus 7 2012 edition. The grandkids like playing games on it but it's obsolete and won't run anything higher than Android 4.4 without slowing down completely. Pickings are pretty slim unless you want iPad (I don't) or Amazon Fire (don't want that either.) None of the majors have released a new model this year and the market appears to be going over to the Chinese no-names.
The tablet is being replaced by phablet phones, Chromebooks, 2 in 1s and new faster lighter notebooks. I guess most folks want a keyboard after all. There wasn't anything wrong with the netbook that better hardware wouldn't have cured.

If you are looking for a new tablet I have had pretty good results with the previous generation of the Huawei MediaPad M3 8" model.

Android tablets are still being manufactured
I own an older Asus and a Samsung tablet.
The Asus was updated from KitKat to Lollipop and I doubt there will be any more updates. Since it only has a 7" screen, I don't surf on it. I use it to take pictures, read books and watch movies that are on the micro sd card.
My Samsung was upgraded from Marshmallow to Nougat and again I suspect there will be no more OS updates.
Ironically the OS on the phone remains at Marshmallow and has never been updated. It is a Samsung also and newer than the tablet.
I do surf on the Samsung tablet because it has a 10.1" screen.
