The Galaxy Tab S, in either its 8.4 or 10.5 form, is one of the best Android tablets you could buy right now. Heck, we might even be so bold as to call it the best. Many of you will surely pick one up, and among you, more than a couple will want to wipe TouchWiz off to replace it with something less crowded. To do that, you're going to need a custom recovery, and the TeamWin folks have just the tool.
It's no secret that we think the Galaxy Tab S series are the best tablets you can buy right now. They're also not cheap - Samsung's priced its iPad competitors at iPad prices, and that means shelling out at least a cool $400 if you want to get in on that Super AMOLED goodness. Best Buy, though, is willing to give you a whole Benjamin off the MSRP if you give them a little trade-in action, though.
There's no denying that Samsung's current tablet lineup is a convoluted, confusing mess for anyone outside of the tech circle – just in the current run we have the Galaxy Tab 4 7, 8, 10.1; Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1/12.2, and now the newest member of the family, the Galaxy Tab S. Deep down, I still wish they would've named it the Galaxy S Tab, just so we could call it the Galaxy Stab.
Samsung has formally taken the covers off the Galaxy Tab S, and now it's time to see what this puppy is capable of. Okay, you will actually have to wait for reviews to start flowing in for that, but in the meantime, the company has released its official first look video. Here you can see a spiffy young gentleman break down all the niceties about the tablet that we've covered a few times before.
The casual observer might think that Samsung has too many Android tablets. Between the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition (from 2013, of course), no less than four versions of Tab and Note Pros, and the fourth generation of low-end Galaxy Tab hardware, the casual observer is right. But that's not stopping Samsung's shotgun approach to market coverage. The company has just announced the new Galaxy Tab S line, modeled after the flagship Galaxy S5 in more ways than one.
