The winners of the 11th Annual Engadget Awards: Editors’ Choice

We trotted out some truly precious puppies to announce the winners of this year's Readers' Choice Awards, but now it's time to get down to business. As we do every year, we tasked our editor's with the monumental feat of sifting through the previous year's biggest innovations to select the absolute best in show.

But you'll have to check out the gallery below to find out what made the cut.%Gallery-slideshow273600%

Leaked pic may reveal the iPad Pro’s biggest hardware secret

iPad Pro Model Images

Our knowledge of the rumored iPad Pro is still very limited, but leaked images of a purported manufacturing dummy model seem to indicate that the tablet will feature an additional USB-C or Lightning port on its left side.

The image was found on Sina Weibo, and although these dummy models are not always accurate (especially this early in the development cycle), a report from The Wall Street Journal earlier this month also noted that Apple was considering adding USB ports to its next iPad.

  • Meet the $399 Android tablet that looks like a Surface Pro and brings Windows-like productivity

    Kickstarter Jide Ultra Remix Tablet

    It sounds too good to be true – and it might very well be, considering the issues with crowdfunding campaigns we've seen before. That said, the $39 Surface Pro-like Jide Ultra Remix Android tablet that launched on Wednesday on Kickstarter was a must-buy for many people who scooped up all the units available at the $39 price point as soon as the campaign went live.

    And make no mistake, this isn’t your average cheap Android tablet that we’d normally tell you not to buy during Black Friday sales.

  • Samsung will be bundling even more Microsoft apps on Android tablets

    Only a few weeks after Samsung revealed it's preinstalling Microsoft's apps on the upcoming Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, the two companies are getting even closer. Microsoft just announced that Samsung will also be bundling its Office apps, Skype, and OneDrive on select Android tablets sometime in the first half of the year. And when it comes to tablets Samsung sells to businesses, the Microsoft apps will also work together with its Knox security offering, which makes devices more secure and lets you switch between personal and professional profiles. That's what you call synergy, folks. Microsoft's been struggling to make a dent in the mobile market with Windows Phone, so it makes sense for it to team up with the biggest player on the largest mobile platform to promote its services. And of course, the integration with Microsoft's apps -- especially Office -- makes Samsung's wares a worthier option for businesses.
