Asus and Verizon Wireless launched together the ZenPad Z8 earlier this summer, and now this 8-inch Android tablet also receives a non-Verizon variant. Dubbed ZenPad 3 8.0, this slate has been quietly unveiled and is advertised by Asus as a device designed with "cinematic entertainment" in mind.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
