Samsung brings out the Tab S5e and the Tab A 10.1 to Canada

Tablets are still cool right?  Definitely there's a use case for them, and I find myself using them more and more around the house.  Weird as it sounds, I'm not as 'immersed' when I'm using a tablet.  Witha phone I'm neck down scrolling and focused.  With a tablet, I'm perusing and browsing, almost peripheral.

If you're still a tablet user, Samsung has just dropped 2 new options on the market:

The Galaxy Tab S5e and the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 are up for pre-orders, shipping in a couple of weeks.

Let's start talking about the S5e.  I really liked the S4, and we know they have the ability to make a great product. There's no mention of the S-Pen tho'... maybe waiting for the 'non-e' variant.  This is several hundreds cheaper than the S4.

10.5" @ 2560x1600
1.7GHz x4 + 2GHz x4
64GB / 128GB + microSD
13MP / 8MP

Advantage here is that it's ultra thin

The Tab A is definitely the economy option at just a couple hundred bucks.

10.1" @ 1920x1200
1.6GHz x4 + 1.8GHz x4
32GB / 128GB + microSD
8MP / 5MP

Both are fairly large sized screens at 10.1" or 10.5" so plenty of space for viewing, and watching.


Samsung Canada is excited to introduce Canadians to its latest tablets: the Galaxy Tab S5e, built for seamless performance and premium entertainment, and the Galaxy Tab A 10.1, thoughtfully designed to deliver the ultimate versatility for individuals and families on the go.
