Welcome to the TabTimes Monthly newsletter for July, which was a busy month in the tech industry. New smartphones announced from many popular manufacturers, and a few tablets, too.

More than new hardware, software was a big deal this month, Apple released the public beta of iOS 9, and Microsoft began rolling out Windows 10. These are big deals for all of us, at least if you are a user of tablets and computers.

Google did not make any big moves with their software, but they announced big things in their financials.

We spent time with tablets from Samsung, Apple and Sony, reviewing the Sony Xperia Z4, Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 (one year later) and pitting the latest generation iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 against their respective predecessors.

Amazon held a big sale to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Prime Day was heavily debated as a debacle, but there were some good deals to be had.

We also took some time to discover the best tablets out there, listing of what we think are the best Android tablets on the market and work toward the best tablet for kids.

Our team on Android Authority took a good look at where Google's Nexus program is headed, and for us as tablet users and lovers, 2015 may not include a new device for us. Darn.

Enjoy your August folks, see you when school starts.
