Samsung Galaxy Tab S


A new document leaked from a Finnish retailer Multitronic showed us the retail prices of two upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab S slates that was leaked before.

According to the listing, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is going to retail for €563.90. And for the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 Wi-Fi, the Finnish store states a price of €449.90.

The Wi-Fi-only version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 (SM-T800) made the FCC rounds a couple of weeks back. There are also a couple of images that leaked, thanks to which we can see how the 10.5" tablet looks like in the flesh.

The Galaxy Tab S 10.5's display will have a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, while an Exynos 5420 chipset with octa-core CPU will make sure everything stays fluid. The Android version in charge is the latest available Android 4.4 KitKat.


JDI 4K Tablet


Japan Display (JDI) just announced the first 10.1" tablet display panel with the whopping 3840 x 2160 pixels of 4K resolution. This elevates the LCD panel to 438ppi pixel density, which would be a record on a tablet, when this screen lands in one. For comparison, the current king of tablet pixel density is Samsung's Galaxy Tab PRO 8.4 with 359ppi and 2560 x 1600 pixels display.


What's even more impressive is the fact that JDI used a regular RGB pixel matrix, with no PenTile or "Diamond pixels" shenanigans, in order to achieve that resolution.


Thanks to employing the frugal LTPS technology, JDI managed to frame the power consumption of its 4K tablet panel in the envelope of displays with the Tab PRO 8.4's resolution, which should bode well for the overall battery life. Moreover, the screen flaunts 1100:1 contrast ratio, a 160-degree viewing angle, and a peak brightness of 400 nits, which are very good characteristics for an IPS-LCD tablet display.


Ubuntu 14.04

Today, Ubuntu 14.04 was released on canonical website, this release software is fully ready for tablets and will be running on Commercial Tablets very soon. The phone version of Ubuntu has been essentially done since October.


Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth said in March that the first Ubuntu phones will likely come out this fall, but since manufacturers won't need to worry about carriers, there is a fair chance that we'll see commercially available Ubuntu tablets before then.

Canonical put out a press release today saying that 14.04 (codenamed Trusty Tahr) will "form the basis of the first commercially available Ubuntu tablets from Canonical's OEM partners", but there was no word on exactly who those partners might be.

The Wi-Fi-only Samsung SM-T800 is reportedly powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC with a Quad-core CPU, Snapdragon 801 is rumored as a likely candidate. The 10.5" AMOLED display is tipped to have a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. The tablet will run Android 4.4.2 with TouchWiz on Top.



The SM-T800 is said to feature an 8MP main camera and a 2MP front-facing one. Onboard memory is reportedly 16, 32, or 64GB which can be further expanded via a microSD card slot. USB 2.0 functionality and 7,900 mAh battery wrap up the leaked specs.

While it may look like a very enticing proposition considering its price to performance ratio, the tablet's isn't made to be a consumer device. It's called a Development Tablet for a reason mostly because the average user doesn't know what to do with half of the technology stuffed into this powerhouse. The tablet's sensor package comprises accelerometers, a gyroscope, a compass, ambient light sensors, temperature, pressure, and humidity sensors, all managed by a dedicated 600MHz Hexagon signal processing chip.
