Mark your calendars for May 1 (if you want one)
Samsung on Wednesday announced that it's Galaxy Tab 4 family of tablets will be available in the U.S. beginning May 1 starting at $200. There are three different size options -- 7-inch, 8-inch, and 10.1-inch, all three of which will be available to pre-order tomorrow. Though each of the three tablets features a different size display, each one has the same resolution (1280x800).
That's a bit of a buzz kill when tablet makers are pushing the envelope with densely packed pixels, though none of these carry a premium price tag. The Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 will retail for $200, the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 for $270, and the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 for $350.
A 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1.5GB of RAM power the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 model. It also features 16GB of onboard storage, microSD card slot, 3MP rear-facing camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, stereo speaker, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0, 6,800mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat.
You'll find the same specs on the 8-inch and 7-inch models, except the 8-inch version has a 4,450mAh battery and the 7-inch is equipped with a 4,000mAh battery. There's also an 8GB storage option for the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 4.
