Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Goes On Sale Friday

RIDGEFIELD PARK, NJ — Samsung Electronics America announced the Galaxy Tab A 10.1” with S Pen is available in the U.S. starting Friday, October 28. The new Tab A combines a stronger processor, along with an included S Pen and a vibrant display that brings content to life all within a sleek and highly mobile, lightweight tablet.

“With an embedded S Pen, consumers can discover more ways to express themselves. They can write, draw and edit with precision. They can even take screenshots, select brush and color options to draw on photos or create GIFs,” said Gary Riding, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing at Samsung Electronics America. “All of this comes to life on the Tab A’s stunning 10.1″ high-resolution screen.”

Samsung is trying to restore its reputation with the public after the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone was canceled this month due to batteries catching on fire.

The latest model of the Tab A 10.1” features Samsung’s innovative S Pen that revolutionizes the way customers interact with their mobile devices. With improved pressure sensitivity and a ballpoint pen-like experience, the pen is ideal for everything from note taking to even drawing intricate creations. Furthermore, the S Pen can translate and pronounce any word when a user hovers over it, as well as select and animate a GIF to share with friends and family. The Tab A 10.1” also incorporates a new app, Samsung Notes, which combines Samsung’s fleet of writing apps, such as Action Memo, S Note and Scrapbook, in one location for a seamless experience. With the S Pen, users have so many ways to express themselves.

Enjoy the Big Picture

Delivering on Samsung’s legacy of great displays, the Tab A 10.1” is no exception – whether you are binge-watching the hottest new show or video-chatting with friends. With a high resolution (WUXGA 1920 x 1200) screen and a higher pixel density (1.7 times denser than its predecessor), the Tab A offers improved readability so that consumers can differentiate refined detail as well as comfortably read for extended periods of time. Additionally, the screen incorporates an anti-glare feature and a blue light filter to reduce eye strain.

Peak Performance

The Tab A 10.1″ with S Pen is packed with power with an Octa-core processor and long-lasting battery that gives users up to 14 hours of Internet time. Multitask like a pro and open two apps side-by-side so you can do two things at once. Chat while you’re watching shows or email while you’re gaming. And with a microSD card, consumers can expand their tablet’s memory from 16GB up to an additional 256GB so they can keep more of the movies, photos and apps they love.

Transfer with Ease.

Switching to the new Galaxy Tab A 10.1″ with S Pen has never been simpler. With Samsung Smart Switch, quickly move your contacts, music and other media to your new Samsung Galaxy device.

The Galaxy Tab A 10.1” with S Pen will be available in the U.S. beginning on October 28, 2016 starting at MSRPs of $349.99 at select retailers, including www.samsung.com.
