    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 ...

    Samsung has been making tablets since the second half of 2010, trying to close the gap between its own market share and the current tablet market share leader, Apple. Currently, Apple holds a 36 percent share of the tablet market. The only manufacturer even remotely threatening Apple's share is Samsung, which currently holds 19.1 percent, according to Gartner. At CES in January, Samsung dropped four new tablets: the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2, Galaxy TabPRO 12.2, Galaxy TabPRO 10.1, and the Galaxy TabPRO 8.4. The specifications alluded to notable improvements over the Galaxy Tabs of 2013, which ...

    Both of Google's Nexus 7 have been renowned for being such great bargains. The current-gen Nexus 7, made by ASUS, retails for a staggeringly low $229, yet it features pretty impressive specifications and performance, all things considered. Samsung is no stranger to the small tablet category, but the real question is: can it's latest miniature tablet compete with the likes of Google's budget-friendly option? On a price scale, not quite. The Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 retails for $399.99. But what about in value, performance, specs, and overall usability? That's what we aim to answer in this Galaxy ...

    Apple, whether it admits the iPad is a tablet or not, is the tablet market share leader by a rather wide margin. Samsung currently holds about half the market share Apple does, and it's slowly gaining ground. Its tablets continually get better with each generation, to boot. At CES in January, Samsung announced its latest tablet lineup, the Galaxy Tab Pro line. The Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is a direct competitor to Apple's latest miniature tablet, the iPad mini with Retina display. There are quite a few differences in specifications, design, materials, and software. So which is the better tablet? ...

    I've had some wonderful experiences with Android tablets. Loading CyanogenMod on the HP TouchPad, an activity I documented in my first-ever video for Pocketnow, filled in some crucial capability gaps left open by the TouchPad's native OS. Carrying a first-gen Nexus 7 for a week in 2012 taught me just how compelling Jelly Bean in the 7-inch form factor could be. And spending some time last year with the Sony Xperia Tablet Z convinced me that "elegance" and "Android tablet" were no longer mutually-exclusive terms. We've come a long way from the days of Honeycomb and the XYBOARD. But five ...

    Samsung unveiled a slew of new tablets at CES back in January. Some of them were interesting, but the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is what truly caught our eye – particularly its super sharp display. At 8.4 diagonal inches, the Super Clear LCD panel has a very impressive QWXGA resolution, or 2,560 by 1,600 pixels. That's a density that rivals many smartphones, let alone competing tablets. And the rest under the hood sounds great, as well: 2GB RAM, 16GB, Snapdragon 800, and a 4,800mAh battery. Is this the small tablet to buy? Is it worth the money? That's what we're here to find out. While we do, ...

    "What would you say to the people who think that what you do is illegal?" " ... I would tell them that I don't want to answer this question." When you're interviewing the world's most notorious phone leaker, he's bound to duck a question or two. But cautious though he is, Evan Blass –formerly of Pocketnow and currently known across the web by his pen name @evleaks– is also a fountain of insight into the shadowy craft of being a professional spoiler. On today's episode of the Pocketnow Weekly, Evan shares the ups and downs of the underworld he's come to dominate, and gives us a glimpse ...

    Yesterday we started getting some answers to the questions we've been asking for the past several weeks about the commercial availability of the new Samsung Galaxy TabPRO and NotePRO tablets. The big detail we wanted to see filled-in was pricing, and we got that as a retailer opened pre-orders of the 64GB NotePRO 12.2 and the 32GB TabPRO 12.2. Those two only make up a fraction of the full lineup, so luckily Samsung comes through today with details on the rest. Remember, we already saw the 64GB NotePRO 12.2 selling for $850 and the TabPRO 12.2 for $650. Samsung confirms both those figures, ...

    It's easy to be overly critical of Samsung. The company is larger than some of its biggest competitors several times over, and it has the man power, resources, and know-how to not make some pretty obvious mistakes over and over again. We've reamed Samsung more than once for shipping substandard products with laughably awful software and performance optimization. TouchWiz UX, for example, has shipped on dozens of Samsung products over the years. It's not only long in the tooth, cluttered, and … ugly, it is some of the most poorly optimized Android software we've ever dealt with time and ...
