Released some time ago the Galaxy Tab A has just received a successor. The new generation of the Samsung’s tablets has been just introduced to its home-market of South Korea, where it is sold for an equivalent of $440. Although the device comes equipped in a package of quite respectful specs, its biggest selling points are a massive 7,300 mAh battery and S Pen enhanced input.
Samsung and Barnes launches the Galaxy Tab E Nook featuring a bigger screen along with a more modest price
It’s not a secret that electronics industry is a tough one to succeed. All it takes is one bad turn, delayed response to competition’s move or sometime just bad luck and you are headed for trouble. A while ago it seemed that Barnes & Nobel hit a rough patch with its Nook brand after Microsoft ended its partnership with the company and sales results from 2014 were less than satisfactory. However, it appears that together with Samsung‘s offer of cooperation came also salvation. Last month the companies launched the Galaxy Tab S2 Nook and now they are back with the Galaxy Tab E Nook featuring a bigger screen along with a more modest price of just $249.99.
Just few days ago we were discussing the similarities between the Amazon’s Fire Phone and the new Galaxy Tab 4 Nook promotional videos and speculated the upcoming launching of the mentioned tablet. Today, the Nook dedicated version of the Galaxy Tab 4 is being officially launched. In opposition to other gaming focused tablets, it is said to be design for reading first, so all e-books fans should be delighted.
It looks like Barnes & Noble tries to find the solution for their economic problems. Since Barnes & Nobles Media sales are reported to be in steady decline, the company, in order to save some money, resigned form its own homegrown line of the Nook tables and asked Samsung to revamp its Galaxy Tab 4 with the bookseller-made software called Nook. Today’s morning the company started to tease its prospective customers with a new promotional video on the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook. Let’s take a closer look on the video and the new slate.
Some users like to buy themselves every gadget that hits the market and proudly display their collection of smart devices. Others, however, are content owning one multipurpose product. With such users in mind Samsung announced a mid-range Galaxy TabQ Android tablet equipped with 7-inch display. The slate, which doubles as a phone, debuted in the Chinese land last week and will be carried by China Mobile (SM-T2558) and China Unicom (SM-T2556).
Not long after the release of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1, AT&T kicks off the sales of an 8-inch member of the Galaxy Tab 4 lineup. Starting on July 15th, users will have various ways to buy the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 4G LTE from AT&T online: for $369.99 outright, for $269.99 with a two-year contract or for $18.50 per month with $0 down and no annual contract. On July 25th the tablet also will be available from retail stores. In their commercials, AT&T and Samsung are proudly saying that the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 is the tablet for the whole family and it will suit each kind of user.
Almost three months after Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0, Verizon Wireless added the 4G LTE version of the device to its portfolio. The slate is now for sale from the carrier’s online store and for a limited time it costs only $279.99 provided that you sign a new two-year contract. After the special promotion expires Verizon will sell the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 4G LTE for $379.99. Additionally, if you are a More Everything subscriber, you can add the tablet to your existing account for an additional $10 monthly access fee.
We got our first glance at Samsung’s new premium Galaxy Tab S lineup of tablets a couple of weeks ago when photos of the slates leaked out along with a list of specs. While it’s fun to take a peek at upcoming devices prior to their release, it’s the manufacturer’s announcement that we are always looking forward to as this is how we get to learn all the secrets. Ladies and gentlemen, last night at Samsung Premiere event in New York City the company unveiled its new flagship tablets: the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5, making the Galaxy Tab S series official.
Following Barnes & Noble’s announcement from last year confirming that the company won’t me making the Nook tablets anymore, many users said their goodbyes to the brand. However, it looks like the brand in not dead, as a new Galaxy Tab 4 Nook has just been unveiled. The name pretty much says it all, but in case you have any doubts let us explain – the new Galaxy Tab 4 Nook is a product of collaboration between Barnes & Noble and Samsung.
Samsung is getting ready to unveil its new Tab S series, which we believe will happen on June 12th during an event in New York City. From what we can tell the lineup consists of two devices, the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and Galaxy Tab S 8.4, but we can’t rule out that more tablets are on the way. As the official announcement day approaches, the slates are gradually losing their mysteriousness, by means of some serious leaks. We can even see how they look as images of both devices appeared online already.
Four new Samsung tablets, that is the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, and the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite, are on their way. The slates have been rumored since July, with the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 being the center of focus mostly due to its size. According to the latest reports, all tablets will hit the market in the first quarter of 2014, though exact release date has not been confirmed yet by manufacturer.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 has just paid a visit to the Federal Communications Commission. Raising an eyebrow in surprise? We know that the tablet has been on sale for almost two months, but the one that was spotted at the FCC is a different model. In addition to Wi-Fi, the device will also offer cellular connectivity. The Galaxy Note 8.0 features an 850 / 1900 GSM radio and support for LTE Bands 2, 4, 5 and 17. These numbers speak for themselves adding up to compatibility with AT&T’s LTE network. This is certainly great news for those customers without access to Wi-Fi.
When you think Samsung, probably the latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4, pops to mind. This is only natural after so many news regarding the handset. However, the phone is not the only project the company has been developing. This week Samsung lifted the veils off of the Galaxy Tab 3. The Wi-Fi-only model will be available for purchase in the first days of May, while the 3G version is scheduled for release some time in July. We are still waiting for exact launch dates and pricing.
Christmas is approaching quickly and you probably still have wondering what to buy for a present.

Samsung fans have been waiting for this day for a long time and finally it has arrived. Starting yesterday, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 table is available in the stores for $499 for the 16GB model or $549 for the 32GB version. Now let’s see what the tablet has to offer.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 features a 10.1-inch display with a 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution, so it has the screen real estate for scrawling notes, entertaining kids, and creating some real pieces of art if you wish. You can do so either using your fingertips or the S-Pen stylus, which is still not very common for tablets. The stylus can be used to write, draw or navigate, though using it may require some getting used to. It is an elegant and easy-to-grip pen but the inclusion of a function button close to the tip can prove to be somewhat irksome. For some users it may not be easy to find the best way to hold the S-Pen without triggering the screenshot function which is assigned to the button. The bottom end of the pen functions as an eraser – all you have to do is flip the pen.
Under the hood, there is a Quad Core Exynos 4412 processor running at 1.4GHz, and 2GB of RAM with 16GB or 32GB of flash storage. The microSD card slot is compatible with cards up to 64 GB so you don’t have to worry about running out of space for your documents, photos, games or apps. The table sports Bluetooth 4.0, GPS navigation, an accelerometer, a digital compass and a gyroscope, and you connect to the Web via WiFi (802.11b/g/n), Wi-Fi Direct, dual-band, or create a Wi-Fi hotspot. All this makes the device efficient and fast. Websites (even graphics-heavy ones) and apps load quickly and without a problem, and games and movies run smoothly. The impressive 7000 mAh battery provides you with up to 21 hours of play time without the need to recharge the battery.
To add even more fun, the table has two cameras. 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera serves for video chatting and 5 megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash and geo-tagging allows you to take pictures and edit them using one of the few apps as well as record 1080p at 30 fps videos. The Galaxy Note 10.1 also provides access to Google Search, Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Calendar, Google Talk, and is integrated with Picasa, so you can create and edit photo albums and share them with your friends and family. The tablet supports P4/DivX/Xvid/FLV/MKV/H.264/H.263 video and MP3/WAV/eAAC+/Flac audio files.
Samsung’s store offers a number of S-Pen compatible apps: S Memo, S Note, Adobe Ideas, PS Touch. While some of them are designed simply to have fun, others may prove really useful. The tablet runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. All things considered, it definitely is worth checking out.

The impressive 7000 mAh battery provides you with up to 21 hours of play time without the need to recharge the battery.
Cameras on Samsung Galaxy Tablet 10.1
The tablet features two cameras. 2MP front-facing serves for video chatting and 5MP rear camera with auto-focus, LED flash and geo-tagging allows you to take pictures and edit them using one of the few apps as well as record 1080p at 30fps videos. The Galaxy Note 10.1 also provides access to Google Search, Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Calendar, Google Talk, and is integrated with Picasa, so you can create and edit photo albums and share them with your friends and family. The tablet supports MP4/DivX/Xvid/FLV/MKV/H.264/H.263 video and MP3/WAV/eAAC+/Flac audio files.
Thanks to the 10.1-inch display with a 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution, the Galaxy Note has the screen real estate for scrawling notes, entertaining kids, and creating some real pieces of art if you wish. You can do so either using your fingertips or the S-Pen stylus, which is still not very common for tablets. The stylus can be used to write, draw or navigate, though using it may require some getting used to. It is an elegant and easy-to-grip pen but the inclusion of a function button close to the tip can prove to be somewhat irksome. For some users it may not be easy to find the best way to hold the S-Pen without triggering the screenshot function which is assigned to the button. The bottom end of the pen functions as an eraser – all you have to do is flip the pen.
Coolest S-Pen Compatible Apps
First of all, there S Memo, which is a handwriting recognition app. After selecting one of a handful of themes (ranging from a memo to musical notation paper to graph paper), users are then given the option to choose from one of three function modes – formula, shape or text match. In the math option the screen will be divided in two and while you write your equation on one of them, the other shows the translation ready to accept and calculate. The shape recognition is a bit less useful, but if the composition of basic circles and squares poses you great difficulty, this neat mode will redraw them for you in proper alignment. The most important function of S Memo, however, is the ability to render your handwriting into readable type. Once the software learns your scribble, sharing your notes with your colleagues will never be a problem again.
S Note, which is a more creative variation of S Memo, will let you compose for example postcards with pictures from your own gallery or a magazine page with a video embed.
Adobe Ideas is one of the Adobe apps pre-loaded on the Galaxy Note 10.1. It is a Photoshop-like app that can give you basic idea on picture editing if you are an aspiring graphic designer or simply like to play with pictures. Pulling from a selection of images (pre-loaded, imported or snapped with the dual camera setup), users can add their creations in layers, adjusting brush size, opacity and color as they go. It is a welcome addition that could serve to gently ease newbies into the complex world of image manipulation that awaits them in PS Touch.
PS Touch is undoubtedly one of the tablet’s most advanced apps. It is a tablet version of the most popular image editing program – Photoshop, and most of its features, though laid out differently, remain intact. While it’s not a complete replacement for a desktop graphics workstation, the app does give pros some flexibility, letting them create on-the-go much the same way they’d do in the office or at home. Adobe added a variety of tutorials to walk users, both new and experienced, through the app’s many functions. It is not a completely intuitive walkthrough though so you’ll have to be a bit self-reliant and trust in your own skill set for that since some of the features require a deft hand and deep understanding of the more advanced principles of Photoshop.
Summing up, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 proves to be more useful than a standard Android tablet. It is a tool for creative professionals looking to extend their workflow beyond the confines of the traditional work environment.
With an array of apps that lend themselves well to sketching, annotating and moderate-to-heavy image editing, pro users should find this a satisfying on-the-go crutch. Armed with the S-Pen and a generous 10.1-inches, those moments of sudden inspiration won’t go wasted, as you’ll be capable of whipping this slate out and translating those fleeting moments of genius into visible and safely contained ideas.
