I've lost count of how many Samsung tablets there are now, but one member of the lineup just received an update, with the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 being spec-bumped to the latest and greatest. It seems like a normal, mid-range, large-ish tablet, but that doesn't mean it's not worth looking at.

The screen is a Full HD 1920x1080 display, with 2GB RAM and a 1.6GHz octa-core processor (Samsung has declined to mention the make or model of the processor) powering it. There's a 7300mAh battery, the usual array of WiFi connections (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac) and of course Bluetooth 4.2. The camera is an 8MP affair, with F1.9 aperture, LED flash, and autofocus. The front-facing camera, meanwhile, is a fairly standard 2MP. Internal storage amounts to 16GB, with a further 200GB available in the form of microSD expansion.

Samsung is aiming this squarely at the German family market, so 'Kid Mode', seen on other Samsung tablets, is available, and up to 8 user profiles can be created for different members of the family. Kid Mode opens the tablet up to safe and fun use for children, giving options such as a coloring book, fun camera, and a voice changer. Yay.

The tablet will be available at the beginning of June in Germany, retailing for €289 ($329) for the WiFi-only model and €349 ($398) for an LTE-connected version. It will come in either black or white.
