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.
