If you happen to be in the market for a spanking new tablet, then I am quite sure that by now, you would know that the world of tablets is firmly split into two major forces – those that run on iOS, while the other would be Android powered, although there is a third pillar in the guise of Windows 8.1 that is starting to gain its fair share of followers. For those who continue to rock to Android as the mobile operating system of their choice, you will be pleased to note that this June 26th, Verizon Wireless will offer the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 is touted to arrive with an 8” LCD display alongside a resolution count of 1280 x 800 pixels, resulting in an appropriate pixel density of 189ppi. To keep things running smoothly, there is a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU that will be accompanied by an Adreno 305 GPU chipset.
Other hardware specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 from Verizon will include 1.5GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory as well as a microSD memory card slot for expansion purposes. There will be a 3MP shooter at the back, with a front-facing 1.3MP camera, while a 4,450mAh battery provides adequate juice for the day, in addition to Android 4.4.2 KitKat right out of the box.
Expect the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 to cost $379.99, while those who want to be tethered to a 2-year plan will have to fork out just $279.99 for it. [Press Release]
