After posting earlier today about the Galaxy Tab A being spotted in the TENAA certification database in China, Samsung USA has decided to pull the ripcord and parachute the new Galaxy A tablets into America too.
What I find astonishing is this:
Multi Window allows for easy multitasking
And here’s the availability info:
Available for pre-order from major retailers and at Samsung.com starting today, Galaxy Tab A will be in stores nationwide, including Best Buy, HH Gregg and Amazon starting on May 1. Consumers will have the choice between the 8.0-inch Galaxy Tab A at $229.99 and the 9.7-inch version at $299.99 — both offered in White, Smoky Titanium and Smoky Blue. Additionally, a 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab A version in Smoky Titanium will include an S-Pen for $349.99 and will be available for sale starting May 17.
Both use the quad-core Qualcomm APQ 8016 at 1.2 GHz. That’s a Snapdragon 410.
Both tablets have PLS TFT screens at 1024 x 768.
Samsung is two years too late with these.
I sure hope they still intend to release their high-end 8.0 and 9.7 4:3 tablets.
