The world’s first high-resolution AMOLED tablets, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and 10.5, are official at last, bringing top-notch features and sensible enough price tags to sound the alarm in Apple’s Cupertino camp.
It looks like Barnes & Noble’s tablet production business lives to see another day, thanks to Samsung, which will adopt the Nook-specific ecosystem and integrate it into a co-branded Galaxy Tab 4 Nook.
Samsung’s quest to really make Android tablets relevant continues, as the recently released Galaxy Tab Pros and Note Pro 12.2 are said to get even higher-end spin-offs in the form of an 8.4 and 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab S and enigmatic 13.3-inch “Warhol”.
Samsung’s oft-rumored future Galaxy Tabs sporting Super AMOLED displays are likely inching closer to their formal debuts, with various form factors ranging from 7 to 10.5 inches.
Less than 24 hours after an AnTuTu benchmark spilled the beans on Galaxy Note Pro 12.2’s features, another upcoming Samsung-made tablet has had its full spec sheet leaked to the press via the same performance test.
Despite recent reports, there might be more than four new Samsung tablets looming large on the horizon, as another one has just cleared the FCC, carrying a model number not associated in any way to previously rumored Galaxy slates.
Not that anyone really doubted its legitimacy, but the recent rumor of a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite being in the pipeline is now just about confirmed, thanks to a Wi-Fi certification, Zauba listing and User Agent Profile expose.
Samsung may not be working solely on toned-down “Mini” and “Lite” versions of current smartphones for next year, but also a low-cost Galaxy Tab 3, according to intel gathered by the usually reliable folks over at Sam Mobile.
Verizon’s full list of special Black Friday 2013 promotions has surfaced online, putting great emphasis on Motorola-made smartphones and handhelds and tablets from Samsung.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to tell timing is everything when it comes to launching a new tech product, especially one that intends to create a fresh niche or target a part of the audience never targeted before.
Though hated and contested by many (I’m looking at you, Apple fanboys), Samsung’s Android-powered gadgets have one virtue that probably no one can deny – they’re diverse and can essentially fit every taste, need and style.
Remember that crazy-sounding rumor about Apple working on a 13-inch iPad? Yeah, I didn’t buy it either at first, but now there are whispers about Samsung also prepping a larger than 10-inch slate, which indirectly adds credence to last month’s report.
Since they’ve never been Samsung’s main focus, the company’s Galaxy Tabs have garnered very little attention over the past few years. The newest family members seem to not be an exception to the rule, although they don’t look so very bad and they’re quickly expanding their availability.
Galaxy Note 8.0, Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, Tab 3 8.0 and Tab 3 10.1. Those are the names of the Samsung tablets released so far this year. And that’s not counting the Windows-powered ATIV Q and ATIV Tab 3, which have been announced recently but are yet to go on sale.
More than seven months old and still stuck on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich? I’m afraid that’s the ordeal owners of the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 LTE have had to go through.
Completely ignored during the “Premiere” event last week, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 3 slates are back on our radar, as they have finally been scheduled for US launches. All three new Android-based tablets will see daylight in America on July 7, with pricing set to start at a predictable $199.
