Galaxy Tab4 10.1 (SM-T530) White_1

Quick heads-up for those of you looking to get one of Samsung’s latest affordable tablets from the Galaxy Tab line. They have announced that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 will be available in the United States starting May 1st, with pre-sales for the new slates opening up as early as tomorrow morning.

This line comes in at three size options — a 7-inch version will run you $199, 8.0 runs you $270, and 10.1 runs you $350. The devices don’t quite stack up to Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro or Note Pro lineup, but for those prices you are getting some very decent internals:

  • 1.2GHz quad-core processor
  • 1.5GB of RAM
  • 1280 x 800 resolution
  • 16GB of internal storage (8GB option available for 7-inch variant)
  • 3 megapixel rear camera, 1.3 megapixel front camera
  • WiFi N, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS w/ GLONASS
  • Android 4.4 KitKat

Where to buy it? You’ll have to fancy either Samsung.com, Amazon.com, Best Buy, Fry’s, Office Depot, OfficeMax, PC Richard and Son, Sears, or Tiger Direct if you want to buy one. Not a bad set of retailers.

Samsung also reminded us that 4G-equipped versions of these devices will be headed to all 4 major carriers starting this summer, though exact size options will vary from carrier to carrier.

    Im still waiting for the Note 8 2014 version.

    • bikdav

      Check Best Buy. It seems to me that I saw that new version at my local store. If my local store has it, I bet that the others might have it also.

      • Fel Pe

        Tnx for the help but I believe Samsung hasn’t announced the Note 8 2014 yet… they have the PRO line with a 8 inch tablet but it doesn’t have the S-Pen so it doesn’t belong to the Note line.

    • JBrowne1012

      It seems as if the Note 8 is the red headed step child of the note series this thing still doesn’t have updated software.

      • Fel Pe

        I heard it didn’t sell many units at all, that’s why… that sucks tho, specially if they never make another Note 8 again. For me 8.4″ is the perfect tablet size and I love the S-Pen and its functionalities.

        • Adam Berg

          The 8.4 is the Tab pro and it has no s-pen, there is no note pro 8.4 just the 12.1.

          • Fel Pe

            There is also the 10.1 ( 2013 and 2014)… and the Note 8 (2013)… that’s why the very only one missing is the 8.4″ 2014 which I’m eagerly waiting for :)

  • KOLIO

    I’m all for choice & I applaud SAMSUNG for their part in providing options/choices.

    But, I gotta ask:
    What is the real upside of the TAB4 series vs TAB3 series (other than shipping w/4.4.2).

    • lolwut

      Samsung’s stock price?

  • Tony Lai

    Another crap tab from samsung.

    • Fel Pe

      Do something better then.

  • Lennatron

    The 8″ for only $270 is an excellent price considering the Nexus 7 is $230 and lacks expandable memory.

  • Roaduardo

    Forgot to list the Micro SD support. Important fact to list for many consumers.

  • Adam Berg

    I wouldn’t call a 1.2 GHz cpu descent, more like a really bad choice in 2014. My three year old likes his tab 3 7.0, but his sister want touch it because it’s super slow to surf on and the Tab 4 7.0 seems just as bad.

    As the rumors in the market suggest that Galaxy Note 4 might come with 4gb Ram and aluminium body. But Can somebody tell me that is it true that Note 4 comes with Aliminium body as seen on http://galaxynote4.net/

  • hitesh jaina

    Note 4 might be the phone to look to for as it has lot more interesting features in it as three sided display and 128 Gb internal storage as mention in http://galaxy-note4.com/

  • hitesh jaina
