Galaxy Tab A design

The Galaxy Tab A tablets from Samsung are aimed primarily at budget-conscious users who don't play games or do performance-intensive tasks. The Tab A features a 4:3 ratio screen, and relatively low-spec hardware, making it ideal for reading, surfing the web, and watching videos. 

Galaxy Tab A price

The Galaxy Tab A price is set at 229.99 USD for the 8-inch version and 299.99 USD for the 9.7-inch version. If you want the 9.7-inch version with an S-Pen, that will set you back 349.99 USD.

The Galaxy Tab A is expected to launch on May 1 in the US, but we have no further details on a wider release.
