Galaxy Tab 4 10.1

If you're on Big Red and are itching to buy a 10-inch tablet, today is your lucky day, as Verizon is now offering the 10.1-inch variant of the Galaxy Tab 4 series. The tablet is available for $360 on a new two-year contract, or $460 if you'd rather buy it outright.

In terms of specs, the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 comes with a 10.1-inch 12800 x 800 display, quad-core 1.2 GHz CPU, 1.5 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory, microSD card slot up to 64 GB, 3.15 MP camera at the back, 1.3 MP shooter up front, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, a 6800 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat. The tablet is the LTE-enabled variant, and is compatible with Verizon's XLTE network.

Anyone interested in this tablet? What features do you normally seek out in a tablet with a large display?

Verizon launches the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 for $360 on contract


I just got paid $7500 working off my computer this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $8k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do,

This still is not much better than my wife's 2 year old Tab 2, what gives Samsung? Have you decided that the budget market for tablets is worthless to invest in?

Looks like it's the only way to get an update on my Tab 2. I like the tab 2 but it might be time to get an newer version. As far as getting the money to pay for it? Click on the spam comment #3

Oh this is interesting. We have an iPad that is out of contract right now. Problem is I have to have filemaker & no filemaker on android. :(

No there isn't. Filemaker is a relational database. We transitioned to it when OSX came out and our CAT Data program from Chang Labs stopped working after OSX Classic was killed. Apple bought filemaker years ago; so, they aren't going to put it on Android. It is on Windows which makes the Win8 tablets so tempting. It is really unfortunate but I have a number of legacy custom databases that I made years ago and just can't get out of. I've looked into moving to new databases and paying someone to do it, but it just isn't done.

Well, I am not sure that getting a Samsung 10.1 Tab 4 from Verizon for $360 or $460 is a good deal. This tablet is available from Best Buy for $319, and from Ebay for $309. This is Samsung's low end 10.1 tablet anyway.

The specs aren't really spectacular either. A comparison with my 3 year old Xoom seems in order here.

There are quite a few good programs on the Samsung, but most of these, or their equivalents are available from the Google Play Store free or inexpensively

I'm not opposed to the Samsung 10.1 Tab 4, but I wouldn't buy one. I'd lose, not gain in the trade. If I were going to buy a tablet I might buy the Samsung 10.1 Note, Samsung 10.5 S, and would definitely be in the market for the Samsung 12.2 Galaxy Note (Because of the fine point capacitative pen).

By the way, besides a tablet that has a camera with decent resolution, I'd love to have one with image stabilization. I don't often carry a hand held camera, but my tablet goes with me everywhere, and my hands shake visibly.
