Samsung Wastes Time, Talent, Money, And Customer Attention On Another Low-End Tablet

Samsung Galaxy Tab E, an affordable 9.6-inch tablet, now official

The Galaxy Tab E (SM-T560) features a 9.6-inch TFT LCD display with a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels and runs Android 4.4 KitKat instead of Lollipop. All the processing heavy lifting is carried out by 1.3GHz quad-core processor (possibly a Spreadtrum SC7730SE). There’s 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, along with a microSD card slot. Power is supplied by a non-removable 5,000 mAh battery. It’s a Wi-Fi only device, but Samsung will most probably launch another variant (SM-T561) with cellular connectivity in the near future.

What does the Samsung brand mean? Trying to grab all the money — competing with craptabs — or wooing people who want something better than an iPad?

And what’s with the non-4:3 aspect ratio?

Announce the damn Tab S2 tablets already, Samsung!
