Samsung's newest budget line of tablets will be on sale in just over a week on May 1st. WiFi-only versions of the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0, 8.0, and 10.1 will be available from retailers like Amazon, OfficeMax, and Best Buy, but you don't have to wait a whole week to make your interest known – preorders start tomorrow.
Kobo is not a name that you hear a lot in the tablet space, but it does make them. Kobo's pitch is directed at heavy readers, but the Arc 10HD is packing some serious gaming muscle behind its bookish exterior. For a limited time, you can have this device for $299.99, which is $100 cheaper than usual.
The Kobo Arc 10HD has a Tegra 4 ARM chip, 2GB of RAM, a 10-inch 2560x1600 LCD, and 16GB of storage.
Some companies have made a business out of selling high-quality Android slates at a good price by making the right compromises. Other companies, are Archos. The newest devices from the French tablet maker are the three Neon tablets, the 90 Neon, 97 Neon, and 101 Neon.
These three devices are all packed in the same general size range. The 90 Neon has a 9-inch 800x480 screen, which will probably look fairly awful.
If Samsung has not yet scared you away with its recent indiscretions, the new NotePRO 12.2 can be pre-ordered in the UK. You won't even have to wait very long for this stylus-friendly monster to ship. Samsung expects the NotePro (Samsung usually leaves the screen size off) to hop a truck to your home on February 4th.
The NotePro is very similar to the previously announced 2014 version of the Note 10.1, except for the size, of course.
Dell began sending out Android 4.3 updates to it's budget Atom-based Android tablets late last year, but it's been a super-slow rollout. Well, now it's picking up steam. The OTA should be hitting both tablets soon, if not already.
Samsung is not letting us down with its CES announcements despite Mobile World Congress just over the horizon. The South Korean company has revealed the new larger 12.2-inch Galaxy NotePRO tablet and three sizes of the new Galaxy TabPRO – 12.2, 10.1, And 8.4-Inches. They all run the newest version of Android with Samsung's UX changes, and will come with a huge package of premium content and services too.
In a world where almost all tablets are boring black slabs, Lenovo is trying to make some headway with a different design. Now you can experience Lenovo's take on the tablet for $60 less than usual – the Yoga Tablet 8 is on sale for $189.99 at Best Buy today only. That's better than the last such deal.
The Yoga Tablet 8 has a neat little stand that can be used to prop it upright or position it at a comfortable incline.
