Samsung has already announced the Galaxy Tab 4 lineup of tablets, the 7-inch, 8-inch and 10.1-inch models. However we didn't have a release date until now. Samsung has announced today that the Galaxy Tab 4 lineup will be available in-store on May 1st, which is about a week away. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 tablets aren't the best tablets out there, but for their price, they are pretty good. Especially for those looking to get a tablet from Samsung. The Galaxy Tab 4 7-inch is going for $199, the 8-inch for $269 and the 10.1-inch for $349.99. Each tablet has a 1280x800 resolution display, so not quite the Full HD we're used to seeing these days. But it also has a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, Android 4.4.2 Kitkat, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot of course - the Galaxy Tab 4 7-inch has an option for a 8GB model - and a 3MP and 1.3MP camera on all three models. They will be available at most retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, etc. Once more, LTE versions will be available at T-Mobile this summer.
