    Samsung's latest tablets are out now, marrying high-res quad HD displays with the bold colors and deep blacks afforded by the use of OLED panels: the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and 10.5. And though these tablets may be currently available for purchase, they could use a little push to help get sales going; the delayed availability of the LTE models, and corresponding lack of carrier promotion, certainly can't be helping. So Samsung is turning to other companies to help bring the Tab S into the spotlight, and today announced an unorthodox promo campaign, using the Galaxy Tab S to introduce the next ...

    Heat is a fact of life with many mobile devices: when we crank up the brightness on our screens full-blast, or run software that pushes all a processor's cores into overdrive, we expect a handset to heat up in the process. Running warm may be one thing, but it's easy to take things too far, and on the upper end of the spectrum we're looking at glitchy operation, spontaneous power-downs, or even outright damage to hardware. New reports suggest that the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 may be suffering from some serious overheating issues, going so far as to warp the tablet's ...

    This year has already been a busy one for Samsung's tablet lineup, and a couple weeks back we saw the company debut the latest additions to that family, bringing OLED displays back into the fold with the launch of the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Tab S 10.5. We saw pre-orders open shortly after Samsung's premiere event, and today we finally reach retail availability, as both Tab S models go up for sale in the US. Well, that's true so long as you're interested in a WiFi-only model, at least, with both the 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch tablets yours to purchase; LTE models are still a little way's out. ...

    Samsung has just announced its brand new Galaxy Tab S tablet lineup, and is now sharing details for pre-orders.

    A new line of Samsung OLED tablets has long been rumored as an upgrade to the OEM's current offerings, and it is finally now official. The Galaxy Tab S lineup, with the name we first heard of about a month ago, has been unveiled by the South Korean manufacturer. The 8.4 and 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab S tablets have just arrived at an event at the Madison Square Garden in New York City. The tablets are only 6.6-mm thin, which is impressive for devices of this caliber. Galaxy Tab S is significant, as Samsung's "thinnest tablet ever." The crown for Samsung's lightest tablet ever is also stolen by ...

    We've been mentioning it every time talk of the tablets comes up, but in case you haven't been paying attention, Samsung is expected to introduce its pair of Galaxy Tab S models at a press event tonight. Going back quite a while we've hearing scattered rumors of Samsung delivering new tablets that would use the same sort of bright, super-saturated OLED panels that find homes in the company's high-end smartphones, and last month those rumors started crystallizing around this Tab S name. In the weeks that followed, a ton of info on these slates has leaked, and we've already had the ...

    In the tablet space, Samsung is a quickly growing giant. Almost single-handed, Samsung has cut Apple's tablet market share in half – from over 60 percent in 2012 to 30 percent in Q1 this year – while snapping up 23 percent of the global tablet share in Q1. We never had any doubt this would be the case, even with how half-baked the first two or three generations of its tablets were. Take the original Galaxy Tab, for example. It was a 7-inch knee-jerk reaction to the iPad. It ran Android, of course, but it was a stretched version of the phone-based OS. Google had not yet developed a home ...

    We know the Samsung Galaxy Tab S line is set to be unveiled at a New York City Samsung event on June 13, and know pretty much all there is to know about the devices we will see, so it's time to start talking availability. According to a leaked retailer roadmap, we know when the Galaxy Tab S devices will likely go on sale. The roadmap states that a teaser for the devices will be posted on the day before the press event, June 12. Then, pre-orders will open on the day of the event (June 13), at "a few select retailers". On June 27, two weeks from the press event, the tablets will go up ...
