Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1” with S Pen have been taking pre-orders for nearly 2 weeks already, and is going like hotcakes, since Samsung haven’t released a new Samsung Galaxy Note type of tablet with this many features and such an attractive package in years.
And $349 for a 10.1-inch Android 6.0 Marshmallow tablet with 1920 x 1200 resolution display, Samsung’s Exynos 7870 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 256GB microSD card support, a 13 hour battery life, complete Wi-Fi cover, and a built-in S Pen stylus is good value for money, and that’s already before we start looking at all the features and all the things you can do with the S Pen.
