Samsung Galaxy Tab E arrives to Verizon
Back in June, Samsung officially announced the Galaxy Tab E, an entry-level tablet with rather modest specs. Now the LTE version of the tablet has made its way over to Verizon (both online and in-store), where it will set back consumers $329 outright, or $13.74 a month for 24 months.
When we say modest specs, we mean it. Samsung hasn’t officially specified what processor is inside from what we can tell, other than stating it is a quad-core 1.3GHz chip, but various rumors suggest it is a Spreadtrum SC7730SE. As for the rest of the specs, we get a 9.6-inch TFT LCD display with a resolution of 1280 x 800, 8GB storage with microSD for expansion, a 5000 mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat with Touchwiz on-top. You also get compatibility with Verizon LTE baked in.
For those wondering, the Tab E LTE model commands a premium of about $100 over the Wi-Fi version. At the time of the Tab E’s Wi-Fi debut, we mentioned that the pricing seemed more than a bit high for the specs and, 3 months later, that’s even more the case now.
Sadly, devices like the Tab E are aimed at less-than-tech-savvy individuals that simply see the brand name “Samsung”, and buy it without knowing what they are getting into. What do you think, should Samsung be delivering more with their budget tablets or do you feel the pricing is acceptable? Let us know your view in the comments.
