Deal: Samsung Galaxy Tab A costs less than $200 at Best Buy

It’s true that the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 is a rather old tablet and probably obsolete hardware-wise, but for less than $200 it might worth a try. Two years after its debut in the United States, the tablet still sells for around $250-$280 outright.

However, Best Buy has decided to make the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 even more appealing. Until the end of the day, the tablet costs just $199.99, so customers would save $80 if they purchase Samsung’s Galaxy Tab slate.

It’s worth noting that the Black color variant is the only one that’s on sale, so don’t try to get the White model unless you don’t …


Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 spotted in benchmark listing with Snapdragon 835 CPU

A sequel to Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S3 is already in the works and we might not have to wait too long to see it in stores. Our first report about the Galaxy Tab S4 dates from February, but it was only early this month that we’ve got confirmation that the tablet is real and it’s likely to be unveiled very soon.

Android 8.0 Oreo update rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3

We reported back in February that Samsung started working on Android 8.0 Oreo updates for a few devices, including the Galaxy Tab S3. Well, it looks like it took the South Korean company three months to complete the development of the update and start the rollout.

New certifications for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 hint at upcoming release

Back in February, we covered benchmarks that many believed meant that the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 would be announced at Mobile World Congress 2018. Clearly, that did not happen. However, the device has recently been spotted over at Wi-Fi Alliance for certification. The new information shows Android Oreo on board (no surprise there). There are also rumors that the firmware for both the LTE and Wi-Fi models is in development. The speculation is that it may be announced at IFA 2018. Samsung has announced previous tablets here, such as the Galaxy Tab Active, and this sort of news shows it is …

Snapchat might join the data-sharing party by introducing the "Connected Apps" tab

The privacy controversy surrounding Facebook has made a ton of users opt out of the social media and for a good reason – who would want to have their data leaked and used without permission? You might also agree that this is maybe the worst time for a social media to introduce a data-sharing feature. Not if you’re Snapchat, though.

Apparently, the social media is preparing to launch a “Connected Apps” tab in its Settings page. It will allow you to manage the various apps connected to your Snapchat account. The feature has been spotted in Snapchat’s beta client and we don’t know …

The rugged Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 goes on sale in the US

The Galaxy Tab Active2 was officially introduced last year, but the rugged slate did not make its debut in the United States until now. The tablet comes in two versions – LTE and Wi-Fi only, but it can only be purchased via Samsung’s IT channels.

It’s also worth mentioning the LTE variant has been confirmed to work on the AT&T and Verizon networks. However, since this is an enterprise product, business customers should contact Samsung for more information if they want to pair the Galaxy Tab Active2 with other US carriers.

Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus hands-on

By now, it seems that the majority of Android-powered tablets released throughout the year have been largely cost-conscious, just because it doesn’t seem as though there is much of a market anymore for high-end, premium ones. Now, if you’re looking for one that manages to strike a balance with its design, specs, and price point, the Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus might be worth considering.
