Giving consumers more choices? With Samsung, it's more like making it harder to choose from its endless range of Android tablets. Like the newly available Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 series, which comes in three different versions.
While the slabs come in 10.1in, 8in or 7in versions, all three will be equipped with the new multi-user mode, which lets you share and log on to the tablet with their own music, games, apps and photos customised to each user.
The sleek and lightweight unit has a vivid WXGA display with a 16:10 screen ratio. You know what that's for - watching videos, playing games, or reading digital content.
The slates are kitted out with some decent specs as well – it runs on Android KitKat 4.4.2, boasts a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 3.2MP rear camera and 1.2MP front camera, as well as an internal 16GB memory and a microSD card slot that supports up to 64GB of external storage.
Specs aside, it also comes equipped with a number of fun and shareable, not to mention Samsung-centric services, such as Group Play and Samsung Link, that allow you to connect with friends and play games or share music, documents, and content.
Let's talk about availability
There’s not much choice in the colour of the tablet though – it’s available in classic white and ebony black – but you can purchase book covers for it in black, pink, indigo blue or white.
You will be chuffed to know that the range (excluding the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0in) will be hitting all local telco operators, major consumer electronics and IT stores, and the Samsung Experience Stores by the end of May. The GalaxyTab 4 7.0in will be available from end June.
As for pricing, the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0in 16GB is available for S$448 (exclusive to Best Denki), while the LTE version costs S$548. The 16GB Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 is priced at S$548 (exclusive to Samsung Experience Stores) and the LTE version is available for S$648 (exclusive to Newstead).
Book covers for the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1in and Galaxy Tab 4 8.0in will be available at S$78 and S$68 respectively. Verdict? We’d say the Galaxy Tab 4 Series is value for money for that many features bound into an affordable and mobile device.
