Although Samsung has been dabbling in mammoth-sized tablets aimed at home entertainment, 2-in-1 Windows hybrids, and 7-inch Android “phoneblets” of late in its efforts to revive a dying niche, that doesn’t mean traditional 7 and 10-inch Galaxy Tabs have breathed their last.

For some reason, it just took the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016) a little while to spread from the old continent to America, finally opening official US pre-orders this past weekend, and promising to ship in “7-10 business days.”

Not exactly following in the footsteps of the high-end, Super AMOLED display-sporting Galaxy Tab S2, the 10.1-inch GTab A isn’t a pushover either, integrating mainly respectable features, like 2GB RAM, an octa-core Exynos 7870 processor, 8MP rear camera with LED flash, and 7,300 mAh battery rated at a solid 13 hours of running time between charges.

The PLS LCD screen is itself reasonably sharp, at 1,920 x 1,200 pixels resolution yielding 224 ppi density, while Android 6.0 Marshmallow takes care of smooth software operations. Far from a knockout, the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 feels relatively slim and lightweight (8.2mm and 525 grams), with black and white your classical color options, and Wi-Fi-only pricing set at $300. No words on an LTE-enabled variant yet, but it might be worth waiting for.
